Genesis - Chapter 44
2 And put my cup, the silver one, in the mouth of the youngest one's sack as well as the money for his rations.' He did as Joseph had instructed.
5 Is this not what my lord uses for drinking and also for reading omens? What you have done is wrong." '
7 They asked him, 'What does my lord mean? Your servants would never think of doing such a thing.
9 Whichever of your servants is found to have it shall die, and the rest of us shall be slaves of my lord.'
13 Then they tore their clothes, and when each man had reloaded his donkey they returned to the city.
16 'What can we answer my lord?' Judah replied. 'What can we say? How can we clear ourselves? God himself has uncovered your servants' guilt. Here we are then, my lord's slaves, we no less than the one in whose possession the cup was found.'
17 'I could not think of doing such a thing,' he replied. 'The man in whose possession the cup was found shall be my slave, but you can go back unhindered to your father.'
19 My lord questioned his servants, "Have you father or brother?"
22 We replied to my lord, "The boy cannot leave his father. If he leaves him, his father will die."
23 But you said to your servants, "If your youngest brother does not come down with you, you will not be admitted to my presence again."
24 When we went back to your servant my father, we repeated to him what my lord had said.
29 If you take this one from me too and any harm comes to him, you will send my white head down to Sheol with grief."
30 If I go to your servant my father now, and we do not have the boy with us, he will die as soon as he sees that the boy is not with us, for his heart is bound up with him;
31 and your servants will have sent your servant our father's white head down to Sheol with grief.
