Genesis 44:1-17 [ Verse 9 in Original: Hebrew / Greek ]
             [ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
1 Then R1269 he commanded his house steward, saying, "Fill the men's sacks with food, as much as they can carry, and put each man's money in the mouth of his sack. 2 "Put my cup, the silver cup, in the mouth of the sack of the youngest, and his money for the grain." And he did as F883 Joseph had told him. 3 As F884 soon as it was light, the men were sent away, they with their donkeys. 4 They had just gone out of the R1270 city, and were not far off, when Joseph said to his house steward, "Up, follow the men; and when you overtake them, say to them, `Why have you repaid evil for good? 5 `Is not this the one from which my lord drinks and which he indeed uses for divination? R1271 You have done wrong in doing this.' " 6 So he overtook them and spoke these words to them. 7 They said to him, "Why does my lord speak such words as these? Far be it from your servants to do such a thing. 8 "Behold, the R1272 money which we found in the mouth of our sacks we have brought back to you from the land of Canaan. How then could we steal silver or gold from your lord's house? 9 "With R1273 whomever of your servants it is found, let him die, and we also will be my lord's slaves." R1274 10 So he said, "Now let it also be according to your words; he with whom it is found shall be my slave, and the rest of you shall be innocent." 11 Then they hurried, each man lowered his sack to the ground, and each man opened his sack. 12 He searched, beginning with the oldest and ending with the youngest, and the R1275 cup was found in Benjamin's sack. 13 Then they tore R1276 their clothes, and when each man loaded his donkey, they returned to the R1277 city. 14 When Judah and his brothers came to Joseph's house, he was still there, and they R1278 fell to the ground before him. 15 Joseph said to them, "What is this deed that you have done? Do you not know that such a man as I can indeed practice divination?" R1279 16 So Judah said, "What can we say to my lord? What can we speak? And how can we justify ourselves? God has found out the iniquity of your servants; behold, we are my lord's slaves, R1280 both we and the one in whose possession F885 the cup has been found." 17 But he said, "Far be it from me to do this. The man in whose possession F886 the cup has been found, he shall be my slave; but as for you, go up in peace to your father."
