43:1 And the ra'av (famine) [was] sore in the the land of.

43:2 And it came to pass, when they had eaten up the corn which they had brought out of Mitzrayim, avihem said to them, Go again, buy us a little food.

43:3 And Yehudah spoke to him, saying:

The man did solemnly protest to us, saying, you shall not see my face, except achichem [be] with you.

43:4 If you wilt send our brother with us, we will go down and buy you food:

43:5 But if you wilt not send [him], we will not go down: for the man said to us, you shall not see my face, except achichem [be] with you.

43:6 And Yisrael said:

Wherefore dealt you [so] ill with me, [as] to tell the man whether you had yet a brother?

43:7 And they said:

The man asked us straitly of our state, and of our kindred, saying, [Is] your father yet alive?

have you [another] brother?

and we told him according to the tenor of these words: could we certainly know that he would say,

Bring achichem down?

43:8 And Yehudah said to Yisrael his avi:

Send the lad with me, and we will arise and go; that we may live, and not die, both we, and you, [and] also our little ones.

43:9 I will be surety for him; of my hand shall you require him: if I bring him not to you, and set him before you, then let me bear the blame for ever:

43:10 For except we had lingered, surely now we had returned this second time.

43:11 And avihem Yisrael said to them:

If [it must be] so now, do this; take of the best fruits in the the land of in your vessels, and carry down the man a present, a little balm, and a little honey, spices, and myrrh, nuts, and almonds:

43:12 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:

43:13 Take also achichem, and arise, go again to the man:

43:14 And Elohim (אלהים) Shaddai (שׁדּי) give you mercy before the man, that he may send away your other brother, and Benyamin (בּנימין). If I be bereaved [of my children], I am bereaved.

43:15 And the men took that present, and they took double money in their hand, and Benyamin (בּנימין); and rose up, and went down to Mitzrayim, and stood before Yosef (יוסף).

43:16 (vi)

And when Yosef (יוסף) saw Benyamin (בּנימין) 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.

43:17 And the man did as Yosef (יוסף) bade; and the man brought the men into Yosef (יוסף)'s house.

43:18 And the men were afraid, because they were brought into Yosef (יוסף)'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.

43:19 And they came near to the steward of Yosef (יוסף)'s house, and they communed with him at the door of the house,

43:20 And said, O sir, we came indeed down at the first time to buy food:

43:21 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.

43:22 And other money have we brought down in our hands to buy food: we cannot tell who put our money in our sacks.

43:23 And he said, Shalom Aleihem, fear not: Eloheichem, and the Elohim (אלהים) of your father, has given you treasure in your sacks: I had your money. And he brought Shimon out to them.

43:24 And the man brought the men into Yosef (יוסף)'s house, and gave [them] water, and they washed their feet; and he gave their asses provender.

43:25 And they made ready the present against Yosef (יוסף) came at noon: for they heard that they should eat bread there.

43:26 And when Yosef (יוסף) came home, they brought him the present which [was] in their hand into the house, and bowed themselves to him to the earth.

43:27 And he asked them of [their] welfare, and said, [Is] your father well, the old man of whom you spoke? [Is] he yet alive?

43:28 And they answered, your servant our father [is] in good health, he [is] yet alive. And they bowed down their heads, and made obeisance.

43:29 And he lifted up his eyes, and saw achicha Benyamin (בּנימין), his mother's son, and said, [Is] this your younger brother, of whom you spoke to me? And he said, Elohim (אלהים) be gracious to you, my son.

43:30 (vii)

And Yosef (יוסף) made haste; for his bowels did yearn upon achicha: and he sought [where] to weep; and he entered into [his] chamber, and wept there.

43:31 And he washed his face, and went out, and refrained himself, and said, Set on bread.

43:32 And they set on for him by himself, and for them by themselves, and for the Mitzrites, which did eat with him, by themselves: because the Mitzrites might not eat bread with the Hebrews; for that [is] an abomination to the Mitzrites.

43:33 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.

43:34 And he took [and sent] messes to them from before him: but Benyamin (בּנימין)'s mess was five times so much as any of theirs. And they drank, and were merry with him.
