Genesis 43 (WEBP)
 The famine was severe in the land.
 When they had eaten up the grain which they had brought out of Egypt, their father said to them, “Go again, buy us a little more food.”
 Judah spoke to him, saying, “The man solemnly warned us, saying, ‘You shall not see my face, unless your brother is with you.’
 If you’ll send our brother with us, we’ll go down and buy you food;
 but if you don’t send him, we won’t go down, for the man said to us, ‘You shall not see my face, unless your brother is with you.’ ”
 Israel said, “Why did you treat me so badly, telling the man that you had another brother?”
 They said, “The man asked directly concerning ourselves, and concerning our relatives, saying, ‘Is your father still alive? Have you another brother?’ We just answered his questions. Is there any way we could know that he would say, ‘Bring your brother down’?”
 Judah said to Israel, his father, “Send the boy with me, and we’ll get up and go, so that we may live, and not die, both we, and you, and also our little ones.
 I’ll be collateral for him. From my hand will you require him. If I don’t bring him to you, and set him before you, then let me bear the blame forever;
 for if we hadn’t delayed, surely we would have returned a second time by now.”
 Their father, Israel, said to them, “If it must be so, then do this: Take from the choice fruits of the land in your bags, and carry down a present for the man, a little balm, a little honey, spices and myrrh, nuts, and almonds;
 and take double money in your hand, and take back the money that was returned in the mouth of your sacks. Perhaps it was an oversight.
 Take your brother also, get up, and return to the man.
 May God Almighty give you mercy before the man, that he may release to you your other brother and Benjamin. If I am bereaved of my children, I am bereaved.”
 The men took that present, and they took double money in their hand, and Benjamin; and got up, went down to Egypt, and stood before Joseph.
 When Joseph saw Benjamin with them, he said to the steward of his house, “Bring the men into the house, and butcher an animal, and prepare; for the men will dine with me at noon.”
 The man did as Joseph commanded, and the man brought the men to Joseph’s house.
 The men were afraid, because they were brought to Joseph’s house; and they said, “Because of the money that was returned in our sacks the first time, we’re brought in; that he may seek occasion against us, attack us, and seize us as slaves, along with our donkeys.”
 They came near to the steward of Joseph’s house, and they spoke to him at the door of the house,
 and said, “Oh, my lord, we indeed came down the first time to buy food.
 When we came to the lodging place, we opened our sacks, and behold, each man’s money was in the mouth of his sack, our money in full weight. We have brought it back in our hand.
 We have brought down other money in our hand to buy food. We don’t know who put our money in our sacks.”
 He said, “Peace be to you. Don’t be afraid. Your God, and the God of your father, has given you treasure in your sacks. I received your money.” He brought Simeon out to them.
 The man brought the men into Joseph’s house, and gave them water, and they washed their feet. He gave their donkeys fodder.
 They prepared the present for Joseph’s coming at noon, for they heard that they should eat bread there.
 When Joseph came home, they brought him the present which was in their hand into the house, and bowed themselves down to the earth before him.
 He asked them of their welfare, and said, “Is your father well, the old man of whom you spoke? Is he yet alive?”
 They said, “Your servant, our father, is well. He is still alive.” They bowed down humbly.
 He lifted up his eyes, and saw Benjamin, his brother, his mother’s son, and said, “Is this your youngest brother, of whom you spoke to me?” He said, “God be gracious to you, my son.”
 Joseph hurried, for his heart yearned over his brother; and he sought a place to weep. He entered into his room, and wept there.
 He washed his face, and came out. He controlled himself, and said, “Serve the meal.”
 They served him by himself, and them by themselves, and the Egyptians who ate with him by themselves, because the Egyptians don’t eat with the Hebrews, for that is an abomination to the Egyptians.
 They sat before him, the firstborn according to his birthright, and the youngest according to his youth, and the men marveled with one another.
 He sent portions to them from before him, but Benjamin’s portion was five times as much as any of theirs. They drank, and were merry with him.

Genesis 43 (KJVS)
 And the famine H7458 [was] sore H3515 in the land H776.
 And it came to pass, when they had eaten up H3615 (8765) H398 (8800) the corn H7668 which they had brought out H935 (8689) of Egypt H4714, their father H1 said H559 (8799) unto them, Go again H7725 (8798), buy H7666 (8798) us a little H4592 food H400.
 And Judah H3063 spake H559 (8799) unto him, saying H559 (8800), The man H376 did solemnly H5749 (8687) protest H5749 (8689) unto us, saying H559 (8800), Ye shall not see H7200 (8799) my face H6440, except H1115 your brother H251 [be] with you.
 If thou wilt H3426 send H7971 (8764) our brother H251 with us, we will go down H3381 (8799) and buy H7666 (8799) thee food H400:
 But if thou wilt not send H7971 (8764) [him], we will not go down H3381 (8799): for the man H376 said H559 (8804) unto us, Ye shall not see H7200 (8799) my face H6440, except your brother H251 [be] with you.
 And Israel H3478 said H559 (8799), Wherefore dealt ye [so] ill H7489 (8689) with me, [as] to tell H5046 (8687) the man H376 whether ye had yet a brother H251?
 And they said H559 (8799), The man H376 asked H7592 (8804) us straitly H7592 (8800) of our state, and of our kindred H4138, saying H559 (8800), [Is] your father H1 yet alive H2416? have ye H3426 [another] brother H251? and we told H5046 (8686) him according H5921 to the tenor H6310 of these words H1697: could we certainly H3045 (8800) know H3045 (8799) that he would say H559 (8799), Bring H3381 your brother H251 down H3381 (8685)?
 And Judah H3063 said H559 (8799) unto Israel H3478 his father H1, Send H7971 (8798) the lad H5288 with me, and we will arise H6965 (8799) and go H3212 (8799); that we may live H2421 (8799), and not die H4191 (8799), both we, and thou, [and] also our little ones H2945.
 I will be surety H6148 (8799) for him; of my hand H3027 shalt thou require H1245 (8762) him: if H518 I bring H935 (8689) him not H518 unto thee, and set H3322 (8689) him before thee H6440, then let me bear the blame H2398 (8804) for ever H3117:
 For except H3884 we had lingered H4102 (8701), surely now we had returned H7725 (8804) this second time H6471.
 And their father H1 Israel H3478 said H559 (8799) unto them, If [it must be] so now H645, do H6213 (8798) this; take H3947 (8798) of the best fruits H2173 in the land H776 in your vessels H3627, and carry down H3381 (8685) the man H376 a present H4503, a little H4592 balm H6875, and a little H4592 honey H1706, spices H5219, and myrrh H3910, nuts H992, and almonds H8247:
 And take H3947 (8798) double H4932 money H3701 in your hand H3027; and the money H3701 that was brought again H7725 (8716) in the mouth H6310 of your sacks H572, carry [it] again H7725 (8686) in your hand H3027; peradventure it [was] an oversight H4870:
 Take H3947 (8798) also your brother H251, and arise H6965 (8798), go again H7725 (8798) unto the man H376:
 And God H410 Almighty H7706 give H5414 (8799) you mercy H7356 before H6440 the man H376, that he may send away H7971 (8765) your other H312 brother H251, and Benjamin H1144. If H834 I be bereaved H7921 (8804) [of my children], I am bereaved H7921 (8804).
 And the men H582 took H3947 (8799) that H2063 present H4503, and they took H3947 (8804) double H4932 money H3701 in their hand H3027, and Benjamin H1144; and rose up H6965 (8799), and went down H3381 (8799) to Egypt H4714, and stood H5975 (8799) before H6440 Joseph H3130.
 And when Joseph H3130 saw H7200 (8799) Benjamin H1144 with H854 them, he said H559 (8799) to the ruler of his house H1004, Bring H935 (8685) [these] men H582 home H1004, and slay H2873 (8800) H2874, and make ready H3559 (8685); for [these] men H582 shall dine H398 (8799) with me at noon H6672.
 And the man H376 did H6213 (8799) as Joseph H3130 bade H559 (8804); and the man H376 brought H935 (8686) the men H582 into Joseph’s H3130 house H1004.
 And the men H582 were afraid H3372 (8799), because they were brought H935 (8717) into Joseph’s H3130 house H1004; and they said H559 (8799), Because H1697 of the money H3701 that was returned H7725 (8802) in our sacks H572 at the first time H8462 are we brought in H935 (8716); that he may seek occasion H1556 (8705) against us, and fall H5307 (8692) upon us, and take H3947 (8800) us for bondmen H5650, and our asses H2543.
 And they came near H5066 (8799) to the steward H376 of Joseph’s H3130 house H1004, and they communed H1696 (8762) with him at the door H6607 of the house H1004,
 And said H559 (8799), O H994 sir H113, we came indeed H3381 (8800) down H3381 (8804) at the first time H8462 to buy H7666 (8800) food H400:
 And it came to pass, when we came H935 (8804) to the inn H4411, that we opened H6605 (8799) our sacks H572, and, behold, [every] man’s H376 money H3701 [was] in the mouth H6310 of his sack H572, our money H3701 in full weight H4948: and we have brought it again H7725 (8686) in our hand H3027.
 And other H312 money H3701 have we brought down H3381 (8689) in our hands H3027 to buy H7666 (8800) food H400: we cannot tell H3045 (8804) who put H7760 (8804) our money H3701 in our sacks H572.
 And he said H559 (8799), Peace H7965 [be] to you, fear H3372 (8799) not: your God H430, and the God H430 of your father H1, hath given H5414 (8804) you treasure H4301 in your sacks H572: I had H935 (8804) your money H3701. And he brought H3318 (8686) Simeon H8095 out unto them.
 And the man H376 brought H935 (8686) the men H582 into Joseph’s H3130 house H1004, and gave H5414 (8799) [them] water H4325, and they washed H7364 (8799) their feet H7272; and he gave H5414 (8799) their asses H2543 provender H4554.
 And they made ready H3559 (8686) the present H4503 against H5704 Joseph H3130 came H935 (8800) at noon H6672: for they heard H8085 (8804) that they should eat H398 (8799) bread H3899 there.
 And when Joseph H3130 came H935 (8799) home H1004, they brought H935 (8686) him the present H4503 which [was] in their hand H3027 into the house H1004, and bowed H7812 (8691) themselves to him to the earth H776.
 And he asked H7592 (8799) them of [their] welfare H7965, and said H559 (8799), [Is] your father H1 well H7965, the old man H2205 of whom ye spake H559 (8804)? [Is] he yet alive H2416?
 And they answered H559 (8799), Thy servant H5650 our father H1 [is] in good health H7965, he [is] yet alive H2416. And they bowed down their heads H6915 (8799), and made obeisance H7812 (8691).
 And he lifted up H5375 (8799) his eyes H5869, and saw H7200 (8799) his brother H251 Benjamin H1144, his mother’s H517 son H1121, and said H559 (8799), [Is] this your younger H6996 brother H251, of whom ye spake H559 (8804) unto me? And he said H559 (8799), God H430 be gracious H2603 (8799) unto thee, my son H1121.
 And Joseph H3130 made haste H4116 (8762); for his bowels H7356 did yearn H3648 (8738) upon his brother H251: and he sought H1245 (8762) [where] to weep H1058 (8800); and he entered H935 (8799) into [his] chamber H2315, and wept H1058 (8799) there.
 And he washed H7364 (8799) his face H6440, and went out H3318 (8799), and refrained H662 (8691) himself, and said H559 (8799), Set on H7760 (8798) bread H3899.
 And they set on H7760 (8799) for him by himself, and for them by themselves, and for the Egyptians H4713, which did eat H398 (8802) with him, by themselves: because the Egyptians H4713 might H3201 (8799) not eat H398 (8800) bread H3899 with the Hebrews H5680; for that [is] an abomination H8441 unto the Egyptians H4714.
 And they sat H3427 (8799) before him H6440, the firstborn H1060 according to his birthright H1062, and the youngest H6810 according to his youth H6812: and the men H582 marvelled H8539 (8799) one H376 at another H7453.
 And he took H5375 (8799) [and sent] messes H4864 unto them from before him H6440: but Benjamin’s H1144 mess H4864 was five H2568 times H3027 so much as H7235 (8799) any of theirs. And they drank H8354 (8799), and were merry H7937 (8799) with him.
Young’s Literal Translation
Genesis 43 (YLT)
 And the famine is severe in the land;
 and it cometh to pass, when they have finished eating the corn which they brought from Egypt, that their father saith unto them, ‘Turn back, buy for us a little food.’
 And Judah speaketh unto him, saying, ‘The man protesting protested to us, saying, Ye do not see my face without your brother being with you;
 if thou art sending our brother with us, we go down, and buy for thee food,
 and if thou art not sending-we do not go down, for the man said unto us, Ye do not see my face without your brother being with you.’
 And Israel saith, ‘Why did ye evil to me, by declaring to the man that ye had yet a brother?’
 and they say, ‘The man asked diligently concerning us, and concerning our kindred, saying, Is your father yet alive? have ye a brother? and we declare to him according to the tenor of these things; do we certainly know that he will say, Bring down your brother?’
 And Judah saith unto Israel his father, ‘Send the youth with me, and we arise, and go, and live, and do not die, both we, and thou, and our infants.
 I-I am surety for him, from my hand thou dost require him; if I have not brought him in unto thee, and set him before thee-then I have sinned against thee all the days;
 for if we had not lingered, surely now we had returned these two times.’
 And Israel their father saith unto them, ‘If so, now, this do: take of the praised thing of the land in your vessels, and take down to the man a present, a little balm, and a little honey, spices and myrrh, nuts and almonds;
 and double money take in your hand, even the money which is brought back in the mouth of your bags, ye take back in your hand, it may be it is an oversight.
 ‘And take your brother, and rise, turn back unto the man;
 and God Almighty give to you mercies before the man, so that he hath sent to you your other brother and Benjamin; and I, when I am bereaved-I am bereaved.’
 And the men take this present, double money also they have taken in their hand, and Benjamin; and they rise, and go down to Egypt, and stand before Joseph;
 and Joseph seeth Benjamin with them, and saith to him who is over his house, ‘Bring the men into the house, and slaughter an animal, and make ready, for with me do the men eat at noon.’
 And the man doth as Joseph hath said, and the man bringeth in the men into the house of Joseph,
 and the men are afraid because they have been brought into the house of Joseph, and they say, ‘For the matter of the money which was put back in our bags at the commencement are we brought in-to roll himself upon us, and to throw himself on us, and to take us for servants-our asses also.’
 And they come nigh unto the man who is over the house of Joseph, and speak unto him at the opening of the house,
 and say, ‘O, my lord, we really come down at the commencement to buy food;
 and it cometh to pass, when we have come in unto the lodging-place, and open our bags, that lo, each one’s money is in the mouth of his bag, our money in its weight, and we bring it back in our hand;
 and other money have we brought down in our hand to buy food; we have not known who put our money in our bags.’
 And he saith, ‘Peace to you, fear not: your God and the God of your father hath given to you hidden treasure in your bags, your money came unto me;’ and he bringeth out Simeon unto them.
 And the man bringeth in the men into Joseph’s house, and giveth water, and they wash their feet; and he giveth provender for their asses,
 and they prepare the present until the coming of Joseph at noon, for they have heard that there they do eat bread.
 And Joseph cometh into the house, and they bring to him the present which is in their hand, into the house, and bow themselves to him, to the earth;
 and he asketh of them of peace, and saith, ‘Is your father well? the aged man of whom ye have spoken, is he yet alive?’
 and they say, ‘Thy servant our father is well, he is yet alive;’ and they bow, and do obeisance.
 And he lifteth up his eyes, and seeth Benjamin his brother, his mother’s son, and saith, ‘Is this your young brother, of whom ye have spoken unto me?’ and he saith, ‘God favour thee, my son.’
 And Joseph hasteth, for his bowels have been moved for his brother, and he seeketh to weep, and entereth the inner chamber, and weepeth there;
 and he washeth his face, and goeth out, and refraineth himself, and saith, ‘Place bread.’
 And they place for him by himself, and for them by themselves, and for the Egyptians who are eating with him by themselves: for the Egyptians are unable to eat bread with the Hebrews, for it is an abomination to the Egyptians.
 And they sit before him, the first-born according to his birthright, and the young one according to his youth, and the men wonder one at another;
 and he lifteth up gifts from before him unto them, and the gift of Benjamin is five hands more than the gifts of all of them; and they drink, yea, they drink abundantly with him.
