1 And he commanded him that was over his house, saying, Fill the men’s bags with food, as much they can bear, and put a man’s silver in his bag’s mouth.

2 And set my goblet, the silver goblet, in the bag’s mouth of the youngest, and the silver of his rations. And he did according·​·to the word of Joseph that he had spoken.

3 The morning gave·​·light, and the men were sent·​·away, they and their donkeys.

4 They were gone·​·out of the city, not yet far·​·away, and Joseph said to him who was over his house, Arise, pursue after the men; and when thou dost overtake them, say to them, Why do you repay evil in·​·return·​·for good?

5 Is not this it in which my lord drinks, and in which foretelling he foretells? You have done·​·evil in what you have done.

6 And he overtook them, and he spoke to them these words.

7 And they said to him, Why does my lord speak according·​·to these words? Far·​·be·​·it from thy servants to do according·​·to this word.

8 Behold, the silver which we found in our bag’s mouth we returned to thee out ·of the land of Canaan; and how should we steal out ·of thy lord’s house silver or gold?

9 And with whomever of thy servants it be·​·found, let him die, and we also will be to my lord for servants.

10 And he said, Even now according·​·to your words so shall it be; he with whom it is found shall be to me a servant, and you shall be innocent.

11 And they hastened, and they made each·​·man his bag come·​·down to the earth, and opened each·​·man his bag.

12 And he searched; he began at the eldest, and completed at the youngest; and the goblet was found in the bag of Benjamin.

13 And they rent their raiment, and loaded up each man his donkey, and they returned to the city.

14 And Judah and his brothers came·​·into Joseph’s house, and he was yet there; and they fell before him to the earth.

15 And Joseph said to them, What is this deed that you have done? Knew you not that a man who is such·​·as I, foretelling foretells?

16 And Judah said, What shall we say to my lord? What shall we speak? And how shall we be justified? God has found out the iniquity of thy servants; behold, we are servants to my lord, both we, and he in whose hand the goblet was found.

17 And he said, Far·​·be·​·it from me to do this; the man in whose hand the goblet was found, he shall be a servant to me; and you, go· ye ·up in peace to your father.

18 And Judah approached him, and said, By·​·me*, my lord, I pray, let thy servant speak a word in the ears of my lord, and let not thine anger be·​·fierce against thy servant; for as Pharaoh, so art thou.

19 My lord asked his servants, saying, Have you a father, or a brother?

20 And we said to my lord, We have a father, an old man, and a child of his old·​·age, the youngest; and his brother is dead, and he alone remains of his mother, and his father loves him.

21 And thou saidst to thy servants, Make him come·​·down to me, and I will set my eye upon him.

22 And we said to my lord, The lad is· not ·able to leave his father; and should he leave his father, then he will die.

23 And thou saidst to thy servants, If your youngest brother come· not ·down with you, you shall not add to see my faces.

24 And it was, when we came·​·up to thy servant my father, we told him the words of my lord.

25 And our father said, Return ye, purchase a·​·little food for us.

26 And we said, We are· not ·able to go·​·down; if our youngest brother is·​·there with us, then will we go·​·down; for we are· not ·able to see the face of the man, and our youngest brother be not with us.

27 And thy servant my father said to us, You know that my wife gave·​·birth·​·to two sons for me.

28 And the one went·​·out from me, and I said, Surely, being·​·torn he is·​·torn apart; and I have not seen him until now.

29 And you will take this also from my faces, and harm may befall him, and you will make my gray·​·hairs go·​·down in evil to the underworld.

30 And now, as I come to thy servant my father, and the lad be not with us, and his soul is tied into his soul,

31 and it shall be when he sees that the lad is not, that he will·​·die; and thy servants will cause the gray·​·hairs of thy servant our father go·​·down in sorrow to the underworld.

32 For thy servant was·​·surety for the lad from being with my father, saying, If I bring him not back to thee I shall sin to my father all the days.

33 And now, I pray, let thy servant abide instead of the lad a servant to my lord, and let the lad go·​·up with his brothers.

34 For how shall I go·​·up to my father and the lad be not with me? Perhaps I shall see the evil that shall be found upon my father.
