43:1
interim fames omnem terram vehementer premebat

43:2
consumptisque cibis quos ex Aegypto detulerant dixit Iacobad filios suos revertimini et emite pauxillum escarum

43:3
respondit Iudas denuntiavit nobis vir ille subtestificatione iurandi dicens non videbitis faciem meam nisifratrem vestrum minimum adduxeritis vobiscum

43:4
si ergo vis mittere eum nobiscum pergemus pariter et ememustibi necessaria

43:5
si autem non vis non ibimus vir enim ut saepe diximusdenuntiavit nobis dicens non videbitis faciem meam absquefratre vestro minimo

43:6
dixit eis Israhel in meam hoc fecistis miseriam utindicaretis ei et alium habere vos fratrem

43:7
at illi responderunt interrogavit nos homo per ordinemnostram progeniem si pater viveret si haberemus fratrem et nosrespondimus ei consequenter iuxta id quod fuerat sciscitatusnumquid scire poteramus quod dicturus esset adducite vobiscumfratrem vestrum

43:8
Iudas quoque dixit patri suo mitte puerum mecum utproficiscamur et possimus vivere ne moriamur nos et parvulinostri

43:9
ego suscipio puerum de manu mea require illum nisi reduxeroet tradidero eum tibi ero peccati in te reus omni tempore

43:10
si non intercessisset dilatio iam vice altera venissemus

43:11
igitur Israhel pater eorum dixit ad eos si sic necesse estfacite quod vultis sumite de optimis terrae fructibus in vasisvestris et deferte viro munera modicum resinae et mellis etstyracis et stactes et terebinthi et amigdalarum

43:12
pecuniamque duplicem ferte vobiscum et illam quaminvenistis in sacculis reportate ne forte errore factum sit

43:13
sed et fratrem vestrum tollite et ite ad virum

43:14
Deus autem meus omnipotens faciat vobis eum placabilem etremittat vobiscum fratrem vestrum quem tenet et hunc Beniaminego autem quasi orbatus absque liberis ero

43:15
tulerunt ergo viri munera et pecuniam duplicem et Beniamindescenderuntque in Aegyptum et steterunt coram Ioseph

43:16
quos cum ille vidisset et Beniamin simul praecepitdispensatori domus suae dicens introduc viros domum et occidevictimas et instrue convivium quoniam mecum sunt comesurimeridie

43:17
fecit ille sicut fuerat imperatum et introduxit virosdomum

43:18
ibique exterriti dixerunt mutuo propter pecuniam quamrettulimus prius in saccis nostris introducti sumus ut devolvatin nos calumniam et violenter subiciat servituti et nos etasinos nostros

43:19
quam ob rem in ipsis foribus accedentes ad dispensatorem

43:20
locuti sunt oramus domine ut audias iam ante descendimusut emeremus escas

43:21
quibus emptis cum venissemus ad diversorium aperuimussacculos nostros et invenimus pecuniam in ore saccorum quamnunc eodem pondere reportamus

43:22
sed et aliud adtulimus argentum ut emamus quae necessariasunt non est in nostra conscientia quis eam posuerit inmarsuppiis nostris

43:23
at ille respondit pax vobiscum nolite timere Deus vesteret Deus patris vestri dedit vobis thesauros in sacculis vestrisnam pecuniam quam dedistis mihi probatam ego habeo eduxitque adeos Symeon

43:24
et introductis domum adtulit aquam et laverunt pedes suosdeditque pabula asinis eorum

43:25
illi vero parabant munera donec ingrederetur Iosephmeridie audierant enim quod ibi comesuri essent panem

43:26
igitur ingressus est Ioseph domum suam obtuleruntque eimunera tenentes in manibus et adoraverunt proni in terram

43:27
at ille clementer resalutatis eis interrogavit dicenssalvusne est pater vester senex de quo dixeratis mihi adhucvivit

43:28
qui responderunt sospes est servus tuus pater noster adhucvivit et incurvati adoraverunt eum

43:29
adtollens autem oculos Ioseph vidit Beniamin fratrem suumuterinum et ait iste est frater vester parvulus de quodixeratis mihi et rursum Deus inquit misereatur tui fili mi

43:30
festinavitque quia commota fuerant viscera eius superfratre suo et erumpebant lacrimae et introiens cubiculum flevit

43:31
rursusque lota facie egressus continuit se et ait ponitepanes

43:32

43:33
sederunt coram eo primogenitus iuxta primogenita sua etminimus iuxta aetatem suam et mirabantur nimis

43:34
sumptis partibus quas ab eo acceperant maiorque pars venitBeniamin ita ut quinque partibus excederet biberuntque etinebriati sunt cum eo

043:001
And the famine was sore in the land.

043:002
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.

043:003
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.

043:004
If thou wilt send our brother with us, we will go down and buy thee food:

043:005
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.

043:006
And Israel said, Wherefore dealt ye so ill with me, as to tell the man whether ye had yet a brother?

043:007
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?

043:008
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.

043:009
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:

043:010
For except we had lingered, surely now we had returned this second time.

043:011
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:

043:012
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:

043:013
Take also your brother, and arise, go again unto the man:

043:014
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.

043:015
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.

043:016
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.

043:017
And the man did as Joseph bade; and the man brought the men into Joseph's house.

043:018
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.

043:019
And they came near to the steward of Joseph's house, and they communed with him at the door of the house,

043:020
And said, O sir, we came indeed down at the first time to buy food:

043:021
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.

043:022
And other money have we brought down in our hands to buy food: we cannot tell who put our money in our sacks.

043:023
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.

043:024
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.

043:025
And they made ready the present against Joseph came at noon: for they heard that they should eat bread there.

043:026
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.

043:027
And he asked them of their welfare, and said, Is your father well, the old man of whom ye spake? Is he yet alive?

043:028
And they answered, Thy servant our father is in good health, he is yet alive. And they bowed down their heads, and made obeisance.

043:029
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.

043:030
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.

043:031
And he washed his face, and went out, and refrained himself, and said, Set on bread.

043:032
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.

043:033
And they sat before him, the firstborn according to his birthright, and the youngest according to his youth: and the men marveled one at another.

043:034
And he took and sent messes unto them from before him: but Benjamin's mess was five times so much as any of theirs. And they drank, and were merry with him.
