27, Genesis 43-45

Genesis 43

1 And the famine was sore in the land. 11 I View Tool
2 And it came to pass, when they had eaten up the corn which they had brought out of Egypt, their father said unto them, Go again, buy us a little food. 10 I View Tool
3 And Judah spake unto him, saying, The man did solemnly protest unto us, saying, Ye shall not see my face, except your brother be with you. 10 I View Tool
4 If thou wilt send our brother with us, we will go down and buy thee food: 10 I View Tool
5 But if thou wilt not send him, we will not go down: for the man said unto us, Ye shall not see my face, except your brother be with you. 10 I View Tool
6 And Israel said, Wherefore dealt ye so ill with me, as to tell the man whether ye had yet a brother? 10 I View Tool
7 And they said, The man asked us straitly of our state, and of our kindred, saying, Is your father yet alive? have ye another brother? and we told him according to the tenor of these words: could we certainly know that he would say, Bring your brother down? 10 I View Tool
8 And Judah said unto Israel his father, Send the lad with me, and we will arise and go; that we may live, and not die, both we, and thou, and also our little ones. 10 I View Tool
9 I will be surety for him; of my hand shalt thou require him: if I bring him not unto thee, and set him before thee, then let me bear the blame for ever: 10 I View Tool
10 For except we had lingered, surely now we had returned this second time. 10 I View Tool
11 And their father Israel said unto them, If it must be so now, do this; take of the best fruits in the land in your vessels, and carry down the man a present, a little balm, and a little honey, spices, and myrrh, nuts, and almonds: 10 I View Tool
12 And take double money in your hand; and the money that was brought again in the mouth of your sacks, carry it again in your hand; peradventure it was an oversight: 10 I View Tool
13 Take also your brother, and arise, go again unto the man: 10 I View Tool
14 And God Almighty give you mercy before the man, that he may send away your other brother, and Benjamin. If I be bereaved of my children, I am bereaved. 12 I View Tool
15 And the men took that present, and they took double money in their hand and Benjamin; and rose up, and went down to Egypt, and stood before Joseph. 10 I View Tool
16 And when Joseph saw Benjamin with them, he said to the ruler of his house, Bring these men home, and slay, and make ready; for these men shall dine with me at noon. 10 I View Tool
17 And the man did as Joseph bade; and the man brought the men into Joseph’s house. 10 I View Tool
18 And the men were afraid, because they were brought into Joseph’s house; and they said, Because of the money that was returned in our sacks at the first time are we brought in; that he may seek occasion against us, and fall upon us, and take us for bondmen, and our asses. 10 I View Tool
19 And they came near to the steward of Joseph’s house, and they communed with him at the door of the house, 10 I View Tool
20 And said, O sir, we came indeed down at the first time to buy food: 10 I View Tool
21 And it came to pass, when we came to the inn, that we opened our sacks, and, behold, every man’s money was in the mouth of his sack, our money in full weight: and we have brought it again in our hand. 10 I View Tool
22 And other money have we brought down in our hands to buy food: we cannot tell who put our money in our sacks. 10 I View Tool
23 And he said, Peace be to you, fear not: your God, and the God of your father, hath given you treasure in your sacks: I had your money. And he brought Simeon out unto them. 12 I View Tool
24 And the man brought the men into Joseph’s house, and gave them water, and they washed their feet; and he gave their asses provender. 10 I View Tool
25 And they made ready the present against Joseph came at noon: for they heard that they should eat bread there. 10 I View Tool
26 And when Joseph came home, they brought him the present which was in their hand into the house, and bowed themselves to him to the earth. 10 I View Tool
27 And he asked them of their welfare, and said, Is your father well, the old man of whom ye spake? Is he yet alive? 10 I View Tool
28 And they answered, Thy servant our father is in good health, he is yet alive. And they bowed down their heads, and made obeisance. 10 I View Tool
29 And he lifted up his eyes, and saw his brother Benjamin, his mother’s son, and said, Is this your younger brother, of whom ye spake unto me? And he said, God be gracious unto thee, my son. 12 I View Tool
30 And Joseph made haste; for his bowels did yearn upon his brother: and he sought where to weep; and he entered into his chamber, and wept there. 10 I View Tool
31 And he washed his face, and went out, and refrained himself, and said, Set on bread. 10 I View Tool
32 And they set on for him by himself, and for them by themselves, and for the Egyptians, which did eat with him, by themselves: because the Egyptians might not eat bread with the Hebrews; for that is an abomination unto the Egyptians. 10 I View Tool
33 And they sat before him, the firstborn according to his birthright, and the youngest according to his youth: and the men marvelled one at another. 10 I View Tool
34 And he took and sent messes unto them from before him: but Benjamin’s mess was five times so much as any of their’s. And they drank, and were merry with him. 8 I View Tool

 

Genesis 44

1 And he commanded the steward of his house, saying, Fill the men’s sacks with food, as much as they can carry, and put every man’s money in his sack’s mouth. 10 I View Tool
2 And put my cup, the silver cup, in the sack’s mouth of the youngest, and his corn money. And he did according to the word that Joseph had spoken. 9 I View Tool
3 As soon as the morning was light, the men were sent away, they and their asses. 10 I View Tool
4 And when they were gone out of the city, and not yet far off, Joseph said unto his steward, Up, follow after the men; and when thou dost overtake them, say unto them, Wherefore have ye rewarded evil for good? 10 I View Tool
5 Is not this it in which my lord drinketh, and whereby indeed he divineth? ye have done evil in so doing. 10 I View Tool
6 And he overtook them, and he spake unto them these same words. 10 I View Tool
7 And they said unto him, Wherefore saith my lord these words? God forbid that thy servants should do according to this thing: 10 I View Tool
8 Behold, the money, which we found in our sacks’ mouths, we brought again unto thee out of the land of Canaan: how then should we steal out of thy lord’s house silver or gold? 10 I View Tool
9 With whomsoever of thy servants it be found, both let him die, and we also will be my lord’s bondmen. 10 I View Tool
10 And he said, Now also let it be according unto your words: he with whom it is found shall be my servant; and ye shall be blameless. 10 I View Tool
11 Then they speedily took down every man his sack to the ground, and opened every man his sack. 10 I View Tool
12 And he searched, and began at the eldest, and left at the youngest: and the cup was found in Benjamin’s sack. 10 I View Tool
13 Then they rent their clothes, and laded every man his ass, and returned to the city. 10 I View Tool
14 And Judah and his brethren came to Joseph’s house; for he was yet there: and they fell before him on the ground. 10 I View Tool
15 And Joseph said unto them, What deed is this that ye have done? wot ye not that such a man as I can certainly divine? 10 I View Tool
16 And Judah said, What shall we say unto my lord? what shall we speak? or how shall we clear ourselves? God hath found out the iniquity of thy servants: behold, we are my lord’s servants, both we, and he also with whom the cup is found. 10 I View Tool
17 And he said, God forbid that I should do so: but the man in whose hand the cup is found, he shall be my servant; and as for you, get you up in peace unto your father. 8 I View Tool
18 Then Judah came near unto him, and said, Oh my lord, let thy servant, I pray thee, speak a word in my lord’s ears, and let not thine anger burn against thy servant: for thou art even as Pharaoh. 10 I View Tool
19 My lord asked his servants, saying, Have ye a father, or a brother? 10 I View Tool
20 And we said unto my lord, We have a father, an old man, and a child of his old age, a little one; and his brother is dead, and he alone is left of his mother, and his father loveth him. 10 I View Tool
21 And thou saidst unto thy servants, Bring him down unto me, that I may set mine eyes upon him. 10 I View Tool
22 And we said unto my lord, The lad cannot leave his father: for if he should leave his father, his father would die. 10 I View Tool
23 And thou saidst unto thy servants, Except your youngest brother come down with you, ye shall see my face no more. 10 I View Tool
24 And it came to pass when we came up unto thy servant my father, we told him the words of my lord. 10 I View Tool
25 And our father said, Go again, and buy us a little food. 10 I View Tool
26 And we said, We cannot go down: if our youngest brother be with us, then will we go down: for we may not see the man’s face, except our youngest brother be with us. 10 I View Tool
27 And thy servant my father said unto us, Ye know that my wife bare me two sons: 10 I View Tool
28 And the one went out from me, and I said, Surely he is torn in pieces; and I saw him not since: 10 I View Tool
29 And if ye take this also from me, and mischief befall him, ye shall bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave. 10 I View Tool
30 Now therefore when I come to thy servant my father, and the lad be not with us; seeing that his life is bound up in the lad’s life; 10 I View Tool
31 It shall come to pass, when he seeth that the lad is not with us, that he will die: and thy servants shall bring down the gray hairs of thy servant our father with sorrow to the grave. 10 I View Tool
32 For thy servant became surety for the lad unto my father, saying, If I bring him not unto thee, then I shall bear the blame to my father for ever. 10 I View Tool
33 Now therefore, I pray thee, let thy servant abide instead of the lad a bondman to my lord; and let the lad go up with his brethren. 10 I View Tool
34 For how shall I go up to my father, and the lad be not with me? lest peradventure I see the evil that shall come on my father. 10 I View Tool

 

Genesis 45

1 Then Joseph could not refrain himself before all them that stood by him; and he cried, Cause every man to go out from me. And there stood no man with him, while Joseph made himself known unto his brethren. 10 I View Tool
2 And he wept aloud: and the Egyptians and the house of Pharaoh heard. 10 I View Tool
3 And Joseph said unto his brethren, I am Joseph; doth my father yet live? And his brethren could not answer him; for they were troubled at his presence. 12 I View Tool
4 And Joseph said unto his brethren, Come near to me, I pray you. And they came near. And he said, I am Joseph your brother, whom ye sold into Egypt. 10 I View Tool
5 Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life. 14 I View Tool
6 For these two years hath the famine been in the land: and yet there are five years, in the which there shall neither be earing nor harvest. 10 I View Tool
7 And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance. 12 I View Tool
8 So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God: and he hath made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt. 14 I View Tool
9 Haste ye, and go up to my father, and say unto him, Thus saith thy son Joseph, God hath made me lord of all Egypt: come down unto me, tarry not: 12 I View Tool
10 And thou shalt dwell in the land of Goshen, and thou shalt be near unto me, thou, and thy children, and thy children’s children, and thy flocks, and thy herds, and all that thou hast: 10 I View Tool
11 And there will I nourish thee; for yet there are five years of famine; lest thou, and thy household, and all that thou hast, come to poverty. 10 I View Tool
12 And, behold, your eyes see, and the eyes of my brother Benjamin, that it is my mouth that speaketh unto you. 10 I View Tool
13 And ye shall tell my father of all my glory in Egypt, and of all that ye have seen; and ye shall haste and bring down my father hither. 8 I View Tool
14 And he fell upon his brother Benjamin’s neck, and wept; and Benjamin wept upon his neck. 10 I View Tool
15 Moreover he kissed all his brethren, and wept upon them: and after that his brethren talked with him. 9 I View Tool
16 And the fame thereof was heard in Pharaoh’s house, saying, Joseph’s brethren are come: and it pleased Pharaoh well, and his servants. 9 I View Tool
17 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Say unto thy brethren, This do ye; lade your beasts, and go, get you unto the land of Canaan; 10 I View Tool
18 And take your father and your households, and come unto me: and I will give you the good of the land of Egypt, and ye shall eat the fat of the land. 10 I View Tool
19 Now thou art commanded, this do ye; take you wagons out of the land of Egypt for your little ones, and for your wives, and bring your father, and come. 10 I View Tool
20 Also regard not your stuff; for the good of all the land of Egypt is your’s. 10 I View Tool
21 And the children of Israel did so: and Joseph gave them wagons, according to the commandment of Pharaoh, and gave them provision for the way. 10 I View Tool
22 To all of them he gave each man changes of raiment; but to Benjamin he gave three hundred pieces of silver, and five changes of raiment. 9 I View Tool
23 And to his father he sent after this manner; ten asses laden with the good things of Egypt, and ten she asses laden with corn and bread and meat for his father by the way. 10 I View Tool
24 So he sent his brethren away, and they departed: and he said unto them, See that ye fall not out by the way. 10 I View Tool
25 And they went up out of Egypt, and came into the land of Canaan unto Jacob their father, 10 I View Tool
26 And told him, saying, Joseph is yet alive, and he is governor over all the land of Egypt. And Jacob’s heart fainted, for he believed them not. 9 I View Tool
27 And they told him all the words of Joseph, which he had said unto them: and when he saw the wagons which Joseph had sent to carry him, the spirit of Jacob their father revived: 10 I View Tool
28 And Israel said, It is enough; Joseph my son is yet alive: I will go and see him before I die. 16 I View Tool
