44:1
praecepit autem Ioseph dispensatori domus suae dicens implesaccos eorum frumento quantum possunt capere et pone pecuniamsingulorum in summitate sacci

44:2
scyphum autem meum argenteum et pretium quod dedit triticipone in ore sacci iunioris factumque est ita

44:3
et orto mane dimissi sunt cum asinis suis

44:4
iamque urbem exierant et processerant paululum tum Iosepharcessito dispensatore domus surge inquit persequere viros etadprehensis dicito quare reddidistis malum pro bono

44:5
scyphum quem furati estis ipse est in quo bibit dominusmeus et in quo augurari solet pessimam rem fecistis

44:6
fecit ille ut iusserat et adprehensis per ordinem locutusest

44:7
qui responderunt quare sic loquitur dominus noster ut servitui tantum flagitii commiserint

44:8
pecuniam quam invenimus in summitate saccorum reportavimusad te de terra Chanaan et quomodo consequens est ut furatisimus de domo domini tui aurum vel argentum

44:9
apud quemcumque fuerit inventum servorum tuorum quodquaeris moriatur et nos servi erimus domini nostri

44:10
qui dixit fiat iuxta vestram sententiam apud quem fueritinventum ipse sit servus meus vos autem eritis innoxii

44:11
itaque festinato deponentes in terram saccos aperueruntsinguli

44:12
quos scrutatus incipiens a maiore usque ad minimum invenitscyphum in sacco Beniamin

44:13
at illi scissis vestibus oneratisque rursum asinis reversisunt in oppidum

44:14
primusque Iudas cum fratribus ingressus est ad Iosephnecdum enim de loco abierat omnesque ante eum in terra paritercorruerunt

44:15
quibus ille ait cur sic agere voluistis an ignoratis quodnon sit similis mei in augurandi scientia

44:16
cui Iudas quid respondebimus inquit domino meo vel quidloquemur aut iusti poterimus obtendere Deus invenit iniquitatemservorum tuorum en omnes servi sumus domini mei et nos et apudquem inventus est scyphus

44:17
respondit Ioseph absit a me ut sic agam qui furatus estscyphum ipse sit servus meus vos autem abite liberi ad patremvestrum

44:18
accedens propius Iudas confidenter ait oro domine miloquatur servus tuus verbum in auribus tuis et ne irascarisfamulo tuo tu es enim post Pharaonem

44:19
dominus meus interrogasti prius servos tuos habetis patremaut fratrem

44:20
et nos respondimus tibi domino meo est nobis pater senexet puer parvulus qui in senecta illius natus est cuius uterinusfrater est mortuus et ipsum solum habet mater sua pater verotenere diligit eum

44:21
dixistique servis tuis adducite eum ad me et ponam oculosmeos super illum

44:22
suggessimus domino meo non potest puer relinquere patremsuum si enim illum dimiserit morietur

44:23
et dixisti servis tuis nisi venerit frater vester minimusvobiscum non videbitis amplius faciem meam

44:24
cum ergo ascendissemus ad famulum tuum patrem nostrumnarravimus ei omnia quae locutus est dominus meus

44:25
et dixit pater noster revertimini et emite nobis parumtritici

44:29
si tuleritis et istum et aliquid ei in via contigeritdeducetis canos meos cum maerore ad inferos

44:30
igitur si intravero ad servum tuum patrem nostrum et puerdefuerit cum anima illius ex huius anima pendeat

44:31
videritque eum non esse nobiscum morietur et deducentfamuli tui canos eius cum dolore ad inferos

44:32
ego proprie servus tuus qui in meam hunc recepi fidem etspopondi dicens nisi reduxero eum peccati reus ero in patremmeum omni tempore

44:33

044:001
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.

044:002
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.

044:003
As soon as the morning was light, the men were sent away, they and their asses.

044:004
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?

044:005
Is not this it in which my lord drinketh, and whereby indeed he divineth? ye have done evil in so doing.

044:006
And he overtook them, and he spake unto them these same words.

044:007
And they said unto him, Wherefore saith my lord these words? God forbid that thy servants should do according to this thing:

044:008
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?

044:009
With whomsoever of thy servants it be found, both let him die, and we also will be my lord's bondmen.

044:010
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.

044:011
Then they speedily took down every man his sack to the ground, and opened every man his sack.

044:012
And he searched, and began at the eldest, and left at the youngest: and the cup was found in Benjamin's sack.

044:013
Then they rent their clothes, and laded every man his ass, and returned to the city.

044:014
And Judah and his brethren came to Joseph's house; for he was yet there: and they fell before him on the ground.

044:015
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?

044:016
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.

044:017
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.

044:018
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.

044:019
My lord asked his servants, saying, Have ye a father, or a brother?

044:020
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.

044:021
And thou saidst unto thy servants, Bring him down unto me, that I may set mine eyes upon him.

044:022
And we said unto my lord, The lad cannot leave his father: for if he should leave his father, his father would die.

044:023
And thou saidst unto thy servants, Except your youngest brother come down with you, ye shall see my face no more.

044:024
And it came to pass when we came up unto thy servant my father, we told him the words of my lord.

044:025
And our father said, Go again, and buy us a little food.

044:026
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.

044:027
And thy servant my father said unto us, Ye know that my wife bare me two sons:

044:028
And the one went out from me, and I said, Surely he is torn in pieces; and I saw him not since:

044:029
And if ye take this also from me, and mischief befall him, ye shall bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave.

044:030
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;

044:031
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.

044:032
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.

044:033
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.

044:034
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.
