Ge 21:29 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Abimelech said to Abraham, "What do these seven ewe lambs mean, which you have set by themselves ?"

Ge 21:30 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He said, "You shall take these seven ewe lambs from my hand so that it may be a witness to me, thatI dug this well ."

Ge 22:1 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Now it came about after these things, that God tested Abraham, and said to him, "Abraham !" And he said, "HereI am."

Ge 22:2 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He said, "Take now your son, your only son, whom you love, Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of whichI will tell you."

Abraham said to his young men, "Stay here with the donkey, andI and the lad will go over there; and we will worship and return to you."

Ge 22:7 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]

Ge 22:8 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Abraham said, "God will provide for Himself the lamb for the burnt offering, my son ." So the two of them walked on together.

Ge 22:9 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then they came to the place of which God had told him; and Abraham built the altar there and arranged the wood, and bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood.

Ge 22:11 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
But the angel of the LORD called to him from heaven and said, "Abraham, Abraham !" And he said, "HereI am."

Ge 22:12 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He said, "Do not stretch out your hand against the lad, and do nothing to him; for nowI know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me."

Ge 22:14 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Abraham called the name of that place The LORD Will Provide, as it is said to this day, "In the mount of the LORD it will be provided ."

Ge 22:16 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
and said, "By MyselfI have sworn, declares the LORD, because you have done this thing and have not withheld your son, your only son,

The sons of Heth answered Abraham, saying to him,

Ge 23:8 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
And he spoke with them, saying, "If it is your wish for me to bury my dead out of my sight, hear me, and approach Ephron the son of Zohar for me,

Ge 23:10 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Now Ephron was sitting among the sons of Heth; and Ephron the Hittite answered Abraham in the hearing of the sons of Heth; even of all who went in at the gate of his city, saying,

Ge 23:13 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He spoke to Ephron in the hearing of the people of the land, saying, "If you will only please listen to me;I will give the price of the field, accept it from me thatI may bury my dead there ."

Ge 23:14 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Ephron answered Abraham, saying to him,

Ge 24:2 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Abraham said to his servant, the oldest of his household, who had charge of all that he owned, "Please place your hand under my thigh,

Ge 24:5 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
The servant said to him, "Suppose the woman is not willing to follow me to this land; shouldI take your son back to the land from where you came ?"

Ge 24:6 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Abraham said to him, "Beware that you do not take my son back there!

Ge 24:7 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"The LORD, the God of heaven, who took me from my father's house and from the land of my birth, and who spoke to me and who swore to me, saying, 'To your descendantsI will give this land ,' He will send His angel before you, and you will take a wife for my son from there.

Ge 24:12 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He said, "O LORD, the God of my master Abraham, please grant me success today, and show lovingkindness to my master Abraham.

Ge 24:14 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
now may it be that the girl to whomI say, 'Please let down your jar so thatI may drink ,' and who answers, 'Drink, andI will water your camels also '--may she be the one whom You have appointed for Your servant Isaac; and by thisI will know that You have shown lovingkindness to my master ."

Ge 24:17 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then the servant ran to meet her, and said, "Please let me drink a little water from your jar ."

Ge 24:18 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
She said, "Drink, my lord "; and she quickly lowered her jar to her hand, and gave him a drink.

Ge 24:19 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Now when she had finished giving him a drink, she said, "I will draw also for your camels until they have finished drinking ."

Ge 24:23 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
and said, "Whose daughter are you? Please tell me, is there room for us to lodge in your father's house ?"

Ge 24:24 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
She said to him, "I am the daughter of Bethuel, the son of Milcah, whom she bore to Nahor ."

Ge 24:25 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Again she said to him, "We have plenty of both straw and feed, and room to lodge in."

Ge 24:27 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He said, "Blessed be the LORD, the God of my master Abraham, who has not forsaken His lovingkindness and His truth toward my master; as for me, the LORD has guided me in the way to the house of my master's brothers ."

Ge 24:30 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
When he saw the ring and the bracelets on his sister's wrists, and when he heard the words of Rebekah his sister, saying, "This is what the man said to me," he went to the man; and behold, he was standing by the camels at the spring.

Ge 24:31 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
And he said, "Come in, blessed of the LORD! Why do you stand outside sinceI have prepared the house, and a place for the camels ?"

Ge 24:33 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
But when food was set before him to eat, he said, "I will not eat untilI have told my business ." And he said, "Speak on."

Ge 24:34 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
So he said, "I am Abraham's servant.

Ge 24:37 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"My master made me swear, saying, 'You shall not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose landI live;

Ge 24:39 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"I said to my master, 'Suppose the woman does not follow me.'

Ge 24:40 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"He said to me, 'The LORD, before whomI have walked, will send His angel with you to make your journey successful, and you will take a wife for my son from my relatives and from my father's house;

Ge 24:42 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"SoI came today to the spring, and said, 'O LORD, the God of my master Abraham, if now You will make my journey on whichI go successful;

Ge 24:43 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
behold, I am standing by the spring, and may it be that the maiden who comes out to draw, and to whomI say, "Please let me drink a little water from your jar ";

Ge 24:44 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
and she will say to me, "You drink, andI will draw for your camels also "; let her be the woman whom the LORD has appointed for my master's son .'

Ge 24:45 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"BeforeI had finished speaking in my heart, behold, Rebekah came out with her jar on her shoulder, and went down to the spring and drew, andI said to her, 'Please let me drink .'

Ge 24:46 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"She quickly lowered her jar from her shoulder, and said, 'Drink, andI will water your camels also '; soI drank, and she watered the camels also.

Ge 24:47 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"ThenI asked her, and said, 'Whose daughter are you?' And she said, 'The daughter of Bethuel, Nahor's son, whom Milcah bore to him'; andI put the ring on her nose, and the bracelets on her wrists.

Ge 24:54 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then he and the men who were with him ate and drank and spent the night. When they arose in the morning, he said, "Send me away to my master ."

Ge 24:55 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
But her brother and her mother said, "Let the girl stay with us a few days, say ten; afterward she may go ."

Ge 24:56 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He said to them, "Do not delay me, since the LORD has prospered my way. Send me away thatI may go to my master ."

Ge 24:57 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
And they said, "We will call the girl and consult her wishes ."

Ge 24:58 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then they called Rebekah and said to her, "Will you go with this man ?" And she said, "I will go ."

Ge 24:60 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
They blessed Rebekah and said to her, "May you, our sister, Become thousands of ten thousands, And may your descendants possess The gate of those who hate them."

Ge 24:65 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
She said to the servant, "Who is that man walking in the field to meet us?" And the servant said, "He is my master ." Then she took her veil and covered herself.

Ge 25:22 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
But the children struggled together within her; and she said, "If it is so, why then amI this way?" So she went to inquire of the LORD.

Ge 25:23 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
The LORD said to her, "Two nations are in your womb; And two peoples will be separated from your body; And one people shall be stronger than the other; And the older shall serve the younger ."

Ge 25:30 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
and Esau said to Jacob, "Please let me have a swallow of that red stuff there, forI am famished ." Therefore his name was called Edom.

Ge 25:31 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
But Jacob said, "First sell me your birthright ."

Ge 25:32 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Esau said, "Behold, I am about to die; so of what use then is the birthright to me?"

Ge 25:33 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
And Jacob said, "First swear to me"; so he swore to him, and sold his birthright to Jacob.

Ge 26:2 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
The LORD appeared to him and said, "Do not go down to Egypt; stay in the land of whichI shall tell you.

Ge 26:7 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
When the men of the place asked about his wife, he said, "She is my sister ," for he was afraid to say, "my wife ," thinking, "the men of the place might kill me on account of Rebekah, for she is beautiful ."

Ge 26:9 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Abimelech called Isaac and said, "Behold, certainly she is your wife! How then did you say, 'She is my sister '?" And Isaac said to him, "BecauseI said, 'I might die on account of her.'"

Ge 26:10 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Abimelech said, "What is this you have done to us? One of the people might easily have lain with your wife, and you would have brought guilt upon us."

Ge 26:11 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
So Abimelech charged all the people, saying, "He who touches this man or his wife shall surely be put to death ."

Ge 26:16 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Abimelech said to Isaac, "Go away from us, for you are too powerful for us."

Ge 26:20 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
the herdsmen of Gerar quarreled with the herdsmen of Isaac, saying, "The water is ours!" So he named the well Esek, because they contended with him.

Ge 26:22 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He moved away from there and dug another well, and they did not quarrel over it; so he named it Rehoboth, for he said, "At last the LORD has made room for us, and we will be fruitful in the land ."

Ge 26:24 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
The LORD appeared to him the same night and said, "I am the God of your father Abraham; Do not fear, forI am with you.I will bless you, and multiply your descendants, For the sake of My servant Abraham ."

Ge 26:27 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Isaac said to them, "Why have you come to me, since you hate me and have sent me away from you?"

Ge 26:28 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
They said, "We see plainly that the LORD has been with you; so we said, 'Let there now be an oath between us, even between you and us, and let us make a covenant with you,

Ge 26:32 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Now it came about on the same day, that Isaac's servants came in and told him about the well which they had dug, and said to him, "We have found water ."

Ge 27:1 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Now it came about, when Isaac was old and his eyes were too dim to see, that he called his older son Esau and said to him, "My son ." And he said to him, "HereI am."

Ge 27:2 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Isaac said, "Behold now, I am old andI do not know the day of my death.

But his mother said to him, "Your curse be on me, my son; only obey my voice, and go, get them for me."

Ge 27:18 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then he came to his father and said, "My father ." And he said, "HereI am. Who are you, my son ?"

Ge 27:19 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Jacob said to his father, "I am Esau your firstborn; I have done as you told me. Get up, please, sit and eat of my game, that you may bless me."

Ge 27:20 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Isaac said to his son, "How is it that you have it so quickly, my son ?" And he said, "Because the LORD your God caused it to happen to me."

Ge 27:21 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Isaac said to Jacob, "Please come close, thatI may feel you, my son, whether you are really my son Esau or not."

Ge 27:22 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
So Jacob came close to Isaac his father, and he felt him and said, "The voice is the voice of Jacob, but the hands are the hands of Esau ."

Ge 27:24 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
And he said, "Are you really my son Esau ?" And he said, "I am."

Ge 27:25 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
So he said, "Bring it to me, andI will eat of my son's game, thatI may bless you." And he brought it to him, and he ate; he also brought him wine and he drank.

Ge 27:26 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then his father Isaac said to him, "Please come close and kiss me, my son ."

Ge 27:27 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
So he came close and kissed him; and when he smelled the smell of his garments, he blessed him and said, "See, the smell of my son Is like the smell of a field which the LORD has blessed;

Ge 27:31 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then he also made savory food, and brought it to his father; and he said to his father, "Let my father arise and eat of his son's game, that you may bless me."

Ge 27:32 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Isaac his father said to him, "Who are you?" And he said, "I am your son, your firstborn, Esau ."

Ge 27:33 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Isaac trembled violently, and said, "Who was he then that hunted game and brought it to me, so thatI ate of all of it before you came, and blessed him? Yes, and he shall be blessed ."

Ge 27:34 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
When Esau heard the words of his father, he cried out with an exceedingly great and bitter cry, and said to his father, "Bless me, even me also, O my father !"

Ge 27:35 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
And he said, "Your brother came deceitfully and has taken away your blessing ."

Ge 27:36 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then he said, "Is he not rightly named Jacob, for he has supplanted me these two times? He took away my birthright, and behold, now he has taken away my blessing ." And he said, "Have you not reserved a blessing for me?"

Ge 27:38 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Esau said to his father, "Do you have only one blessing, my father? Bless me, even me also, O my father ." So Esau lifted his voice and wept.

Ge 27:39 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Isaac his father answered and said to him, "Behold, away from the fertility of the earth shall be your dwelling, And away from the dew of heaven from above.

Ge 27:41 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
So Esau bore a grudge against Jacob because of the blessing with which his father had blessed him; and Esau said to himself, "The days of mourning for my father are near; thenI will kill my brother Jacob ."

Ge 27:42 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Now when the words of her elder son Esau were reported to Rebekah, she sent and called her younger son Jacob, and said to him, "Behold your brother Esau is consoling himself concerning you by planning to kill you.

Ge 27:46 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Rebekah said to Isaac, "I am tired of living because of the daughters of Heth; if Jacob takes a wife from the daughters of Heth, like these, from the daughters of the land, what good will my life be to me?"

Ge 28:1 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
So Isaac called Jacob and blessed him and charged him, and said to him, "You shall not take a wife from the daughters of Canaan.

Ge 28:6 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Now Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob and sent him away to Paddan-aram to take to himself a wife from there, and that when he blessed him he charged him, saying, "You shall not take a wife from the daughters of Canaan ,"

Ge 28:13 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
And behold, the LORD stood above it and said, "I am the LORD, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac; the land on which you lie, I will give it to you and to your descendants.

Ge 28:16 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, "Surely the LORD is in this place, andI did not know it."

Ge 28:17 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He was afraid and said, "How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven ."

Ge 28:20 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Jacob made a vow, saying, "If God will be with me and will keep me on this journey thatI take, and will give me food to eat and garments to wear,

Ge 29:4 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Jacob said to them, "My brothers, where are you from?" And they said, "We are from Haran ."

Ge 29:5 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He said to them, "Do you know Laban the son of Nahor ?" And they said, "We know him."

Ge 29:6 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
And he said to them, "Is it well with him?" And they said, "It is well, and here is Rachel his daughter coming with the sheep ."

Ge 29:7 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He said, "Behold, it is still high day; it is not time for the livestock to be gathered. Water the sheep, and go, pasture them."

Ge 29:8 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
But they said, "We cannot, until all the flocks are gathered, and they roll the stone from the mouth of the well; then we water the sheep ."

Ge 29:14 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Laban said to him, "Surely you are my bone and my flesh ." And he stayed with him a month.

Ge 29:15 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Laban said to Jacob, "Because you are my relative, should you therefore serve me for nothing? Tell me, what shall your wages be?"

Ge 29:18 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Now Jacob loved Rachel, so he said, "I will serve you seven years for your younger daughter Rachel ."

Ge 29:19 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Laban said, "It is better thatI give her to you than to give her to another man; stay with me."

Ge 29:21 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Jacob said to Laban, "Give me my wife, for my time is completed, thatI may go in to her."

Ge 29:25 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
So it came about in the morning that, behold, it was Leah! And he said to Laban, "What is this you have done to me? Was it not for Rachel thatI served with you? Why then have you deceived me?"

Ge 29:26 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
But Laban said, "It is not the practice in our place to marry off the younger before the firstborn.

Ge 29:32 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Leah conceived and bore a son and named him Reuben, for she said, "Because the LORD has seen my affliction; surely now my husband will love me."

Ge 29:33 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then she conceived again and bore a son and said, "Because the LORD has heard thatI am unloved, He has therefore given me this son also ." So she named him Simeon.

Ge 29:34 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
She conceived again and bore a son and said, "Now this time my husband will become attached to me, becauseI have borne him three sons ." Therefore he was named Levi.

And she conceived again and bore a son and said, "This timeI will praise the LORD ." Therefore she named him Judah. Then she stopped bearing.

Ge 30:1 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Now when Rachel saw that she bore Jacob no children, she became jealous of her sister; and she said to Jacob, "Give me children, or elseI die ."

Ge 30:2 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Jacob's anger burned against Rachel, and he said, "AmI in the place of God, who has withheld from you the fruit of the womb ?"

Ge 30:3 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
She said, "Here is my maid Bilhah, go in to her that she may bear on my knees, that through herI too may have children ."

Ge 30:6 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Rachel said, "God has vindicated me, and has indeed heard my voice and has given me a son ." Therefore she named him Dan.

Ge 30:8 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
So Rachel said, "With mighty wrestlingsI have wrestled with my sister, andI have indeed prevailed ." And she named him Naphtali.

Ge 30:11 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Leah said, "How fortunate !" So she named him Gad.

Then Leah said, "Happy am I! For women will call me happy ." So she named him Asher.

Ge 30:14 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Now in the days of wheat harvest Reuben went and found mandrakes in the field, and brought them to his mother Leah. Then Rachel said to Leah, "Please give me some of your son's mandrakes ."

Ge 30:15 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
But she said to her, "Is it a small matter for you to take my husband? And would you take my son's mandrakes also ?" So Rachel said, "Therefore he may lie with you tonight in return for your son's mandrakes ."

Ge 30:16 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
When Jacob came in from the field in the evening, then Leah went out to meet him and said, "You must come in to me, forI have surely hired you with my son's mandrakes ." So he lay with her that night.

Ge 30:18 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Leah said, "God has given me my wages becauseI gave my maid to my husband ." So she named him Issachar.

Ge 30:20 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Leah said, "God has endowed me with a good gift; now my husband will dwell with me, becauseI have borne him six sons ." So she named him Zebulun.

Ge 30:23 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
So she conceived and bore a son and said, "God has taken away my reproach ."

Ge 30:24 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
She named him Joseph, saying, "May the LORD give me another son ."

Ge 30:25 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Now it came about when Rachel had borne Joseph, that Jacob said to Laban, "Send me away, thatI may go to my own place and to my own country.

Ge 30:27 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
But Laban said to him, "If now it pleases you, stay with me;I have divined that the LORD has blessed me on your account ."

Ge 30:28 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He continued, "Name me your wages, andI will give it."

Ge 30:29 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
But he said to him, "You yourself know howI have served you and how your cattle have fared with me.

Ge 30:31 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
So he said, "What shallI give you?" And Jacob said, "You shall not give me anything. If you will do this one thing for me,I will again pasture and keep your flock:

Ge 30:34 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Laban said, "Good, let it be according to your word ."

Ge 31:1 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Now Jacob heard the words of Laban's sons, saying, "Jacob has taken away all that was our father's, and from what belonged to our father he has made all this wealth ."

Ge 31:3 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then the LORD said to Jacob, "Return to the land of your fathers and to your relatives, andI will be with you."

Ge 31:5 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
and said to them, "I see your father's attitude, that it is not friendly toward me as formerly, but the God of my father has been with me.

Ge 31:8 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"If he spoke thus, 'The speckled shall be your wages ,' then all the flock brought forth speckled; and if he spoke thus, 'The striped shall be your wages ,' then all the flock brought forth striped.

Ge 31:11 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"Then the angel of God said to me in the dream, 'Jacob ,' andI said, 'HereI am.'

Ge 31:12 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"He said, 'Lift up now your eyes and see that all the male goats which are mating are striped, speckled, and mottled; forI have seen all that Laban has been doing to you.

Ge 31:14 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Rachel and Leah said to him, "Do we still have any portion or inheritance in our father's house?

Ge 31:16 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"Surely all the wealth which God has taken away from our father belongs to us and our children; now then, do whatever God has said to you."

Ge 31:24 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
God came to Laban the Aramean in a dream of the night and said to him, "Be careful that you do not speak to Jacob either good or bad ."

Ge 31:26 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Laban said to Jacob, "What have you done by deceiving me and carrying away my daughters like captives of the sword?

Ge 31:29 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"It is in my power to do you harm, but the God of your father spoke to me last night, saying, 'Be careful not to speak either good or bad to Jacob .'

Ge 31:31 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Jacob replied to Laban, "BecauseI was afraid, forI thought that you would take your daughters from me by force.

Ge 31:35 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
She said to her father, "Let not my lord be angry thatI cannot rise before you, for the manner of women is upon me." So he searched but did not find the household idols.

Ge 31:36 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Jacob became angry and contended with Laban; and Jacob said to Laban, "What is my transgression? What is my sin that you have hotly pursued me?

Ge 31:46 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Jacob said to his kinsmen, "Gather stones ." So they took stones and made a heap, and they ate there by the heap.

Ge 31:48 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Laban said, "This heap is a witness between you and me this day ." Therefore it was named Galeed,

Ge 31:49 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
and Mizpah, for he said, "May the LORD watch between you and me when we are absent one from the other.

Ge 31:51 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Laban said to Jacob, "Behold this heap and behold the pillar whichI have set between you and me.

Ge 32:2 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Jacob said when he saw them, "This is God's camp ." So he named that place Mahanaim.

Ge 32:4 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He also commanded them saying, "Thus you shall say to my lord Esau: 'Thus says your servant Jacob, "I have sojourned with Laban, and stayed until now;

Ge 32:6 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
The messengers returned to Jacob, saying, "We came to your brother Esau, and furthermore he is coming to meet you, and four hundred men are with him."

Ge 32:8 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
for he said, "If Esau comes to the one company and attacks it, then the company which is left will escape ."

Ge 32:9 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Jacob said, "O God of my father Abraham and God of my father Isaac, O LORD, who said to me, 'Return to your country and to your relatives, andI will prosper you,'

Ge 32:12 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"For You said, 'I will surely prosper you and make your descendants as the sand of the sea, which is too great to be numbered .'"

Ge 32:16 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He delivered them into the hand of his servants, every drove by itself, and said to his servants, "Pass on before me, and put a space between droves ."

Ge 32:17 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He commanded the one in front, saying, "When my brother Esau meets you and asks you, saying, 'To whom do you belong, and where are you going, and to whom do these animals in front of you belong?'

Ge 32:18 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
then you shall say, 'These belong to your servant Jacob; it is a present sent to my lord Esau. And behold, he also is behind us.'"

Ge 32:19 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then he commanded also the second and the third, and all those who followed the droves, saying, "After this manner you shall speak to Esau when you find him;

Ge 32:20 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
and you shall say, 'Behold, your servant Jacob also is behind us.'" For he said, "I will appease him with the present that goes before me. Then afterwardI will see his face; perhaps he will accept me."

Ge 32:26 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then he said, "Let me go, for the dawn is breaking ." But he said, "I will not let you go unless you bless me."

Ge 32:27 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
So he said to him, "What is your name ?" And he said, "Jacob ."

Ge 32:28 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He said, "Your name shall no longer be Jacob, but Israel; for you have striven with God and with men and have prevailed ."

Ge 32:29 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Jacob asked him and said, "Please tell me your name ." But he said, "Why is it that you ask my name ?" And he blessed him there.

Ge 33:5 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He lifted his eyes and saw the women and the children, and said, "Who are these with you?" So he said, "The children whom God has graciously given your servant ."

Ge 33:8 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
And he said, "What do you mean by all this company whichI have met ?" And he said, "To find favor in the sight of my lord ."

Ge 33:9 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
But Esau said, "I have plenty, my brother; let what you have be your own."

Ge 33:10 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Jacob said, "No, please, if nowI have found favor in your sight, then take my present from my hand, forI see your face as one sees the face of God, and you have received me favorably.

Ge 33:12 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Esau said, "Let us take our journey and go, andI will go before you."

Ge 33:13 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
But he said to him, "My lord knows that the children are frail and that the flocks and herds which are nursing are a care to me. And if they are driven hard one day, all the flocks will die.

Ge 33:15 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Esau said, "Please let me leave with you some of the people who are with me." But he said, "What need is there? Let me find favor in the sight of my lord ."

Ge 34:4 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
So Shechem spoke to his father Hamor, saying, "Get me this young girl for a wife ."

Ge 34:8 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
But Hamor spoke with them, saying, "The soul of my son Shechem longs for your daughter; please give her to him in marriage.

Ge 34:11 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Shechem also said to her father and to her brothers, "IfI find favor in your sight, thenI will give whatever you say to me.

Ge 34:12 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"Ask me ever so much bridal payment and gift, andI will give according as you say to me; but give me the girl in marriage ."

Ge 34:14 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
They said to them, "We cannot do this thing, to give our sister to one who is uncircumcised, for that would be a disgrace to us.

Ge 34:20 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
So Hamor and his son Shechem came to the gate of their city and spoke to the men of their city, saying,

Ge 34:30 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, "You have brought trouble on me by making me odious among the inhabitants of the land, among the Canaanites and the Perizzites; and my men being few in number, they will gather together against me and attack me andI will be destroyed, I and my household ."

Ge 34:31 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
But they said, "Should he treat our sister as a harlot ?"

Ge 35:1 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then God said to Jacob, "Arise, go up to Bethel and live there, and make an altar there to God, who appeared to you when you fled from your brother Esau ."

Ge 35:2 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
So Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, "Put away the foreign gods which are among you, and purify yourselves and change your garments;

Ge 35:10 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
God said to him, "Your name is Jacob; You shall no longer be called Jacob, But Israel shall be your name ." Thus He called him Israel.

Ge 35:11 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
God also said to him, "I am God Almighty; Be fruitful and multiply; A nation and a company of nations shall come from you, And kings shall come forth from you.

Ge 35:17 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
When she was in severe labor the midwife said to her, "Do not fear, for now you have another son ."

Ge 37:6 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He said to them, "Please listen to this dream whichI have had;

Ge 37:8 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then his brothers said to him, "Are you actually going to reign over us? Or are you really going to rule over us?" So they hated him even more for his dreams and for his words.

Ge 37:9 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Now he had still another dream, and related it to his brothers, and said, "Lo, I have had still another dream; and behold, the sun and the moon and eleven stars were bowing down to me."

Ge 37:10 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He related it to his father and to his brothers; and his father rebuked him and said to him, "What is this dream that you have had? ShallI and your mother and your brothers actually come to bow ourselves down before you to the ground ?"

Ge 37:13 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Israel said to Joseph, "Are not your brothers pasturing the flock in Shechem? Come, andI will send you to them." And he said to him, "I will go ."

Ge 37:14 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then he said to him, "Go now and see about the welfare of your brothers and the welfare of the flock, and bring word back to me." So he sent him from the valley of Hebron, and he came to Shechem.

Ge 37:16 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He said, "I am looking for my brothers; please tell me where they are pasturing the flock."

Ge 37:17 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then the man said, "They have moved from here; forI heard them say, 'Let us go to Dothan .'" So Joseph went after his brothers and found them at Dothan.

Ge 37:19 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
They said to one another, "Here comes this dreamer!

Ge 37:20 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"Now then, come and let us kill him and throw him into one of the pits; and we will say, 'A wild beast devoured him.' Then let us see what will become of his dreams !"

Ge 37:21 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
But Reuben heard this and rescued him out of their hands and said, "Let us not take his life ."

Ge 37:22 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Reuben further said to them, "Shed no blood. Throw him into this pit that is in the wilderness, but do not lay hands on him"--that he might rescue him out of their hands, to restore him to his father.

Ge 37:26 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Judah said to his brothers, "What profit is it for us to kill our brother and cover up his blood?

Ge 37:30 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He returned to his brothers and said, "The boy is not there; as for me, where amI to go ?"

Ge 37:32 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
and they sent the varicolored tunic and brought it to their father and said, "We found this; please examine it to see whether it is your son's tunic or not."

Ge 37:33 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then he examined it and said, "It is my son's tunic. A wild beast has devoured him; Joseph has surely been torn to pieces !"

Ge 37:35 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then all his sons and all his daughters arose to comfort him, but he refused to be comforted. And he said, "SurelyI will go down to Sheol in mourning for my son ." So his father wept for him.

Ge 38:8 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Judah said to Onan, "Go in to your brother's wife, and perform your duty as a brother-in-law to her, and raise up offspring for your brother ."

Ge 38:11 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Judah said to his daughter-in-law Tamar, "Remain a widow in your father's house until my son Shelah grows up"; for he thought, "I am afraid that he too may die like his brothers ." So Tamar went and lived in her father's house.

Ge 38:16 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
So he turned aside to her by the road, and said, "Here now, let me come in to you"; for he did not know that she was his daughter-in-law. And she said, "What will you give me, that you may come in to me?"

Ge 38:17 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He said, therefore, "I will send you a young goat from the flock ." She said, moreover, "Will you give a pledge until you send it?"

Ge 38:18 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He said, "What pledge shallI give you?" And she said, "Your seal and your cord, and your staff that is in your hand ." So he gave them to her and went in to her, and she conceived by him.

Ge 38:21 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He asked the men of her place, saying, "Where is the temple prostitute who was by the road at Enaim ?" But they said, "There has been no temple prostitute here ."

Ge 38:22 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
So he returned to Judah, and said, "I did not find her; and furthermore, the men of the place said, 'There has been no temple prostitute here .'"

Ge 38:23 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Judah said, "Let her keep them, otherwise we will become a laughingstock. After all, I sent this young goat, but you did not find her."

Ge 38:24 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Now it was about three months later that Judah was informed, "Your daughter-in-law Tamar has played the harlot, and behold, she is also with child by harlotry ." Then Judah said, "Bring her out and let her be burned !"

Ge 38:25 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
It was while she was being brought out that she sent to her father-in-law, saying, "I am with child by the man to whom these things belong." And she said, "Please examine and see, whose signet ring and cords and staff are these ?"

Ge 38:26 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Judah recognized them, and said, "She is more righteous than I, inasmuch asI did not give her to my son Shelah ." And he did not have relations with her again.

Ge 38:28 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Moreover, it took place while she was giving birth, one put out a hand, and the midwife took and tied a scarlet thread on his hand, saying, "This one came out first ."

Ge 38:29 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
But it came about as he drew back his hand, that behold, his brother came out. Then she said, "What a breach you have made for yourself!" So he was named Perez.

Ge 39:7 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
It came about after these events that his master's wife looked with desire at Joseph, and she said, "Lie with me."

Ge 39:8 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
But he refused and said to his master's wife, "Behold, with me here, my master does not concern himself with anything in the house, and he has put all that he owns in my charge.

Ge 39:12 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
She caught him by his garment, saying, "Lie with me!" And he left his garment in her hand and fled, and went outside.

Ge 39:14 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
she called to the men of her household and said to them, "See, he has brought in a Hebrew to us to make sport of us; he came in to me to lie with me, andI screamed.

Ge 39:19 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Now when his master heard the words of his wife, which she spoke to him, saying, "This is what your slave did to me," his anger burned.

Ge 40:8 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then they said to him, "We have had a dream and there is no one to interpret it." Then Joseph said to them, "Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell it to me, please ."

Ge 40:9 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
So the chief cupbearer told his dream to Joseph, and said to him, "In my dream, behold, there was a vine in front of me;

Ge 40:12 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Joseph said to him, "This is the interpretation of it: the three branches are three days;

Ge 40:16 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
When the chief baker saw that he had interpreted favorably, he said to Joseph, "I also saw in my dream, and behold, there were three baskets of white bread on my head;

Ge 40:18 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Joseph answered and said, "This is its interpretation: the three baskets are three days;

Ge 41:9 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then the chief cupbearer spoke to Pharaoh, saying, "I would make mention today of my own offenses.

Ge 41:15 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I have had a dream, but no one can interpret it; andI have heard it said about you, that when you hear a dream you can interpret it."

Ge 41:16 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Joseph then answered Pharaoh, saying, "It is not in me; God will give Pharaoh a favorable answer ."

Ge 41:24 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
and the thin ears swallowed the seven good ears. ThenI told it to the magicians, but there was no one who could explain it to me."

Ge 41:25 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Now Joseph said to Pharaoh, "Pharaoh's dreams are one and the same; God has told to Pharaoh what He is about to do.

Ge 41:38 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Pharaoh said to his servants, "Can we find a man like this, in whom is a divine spirit ?"

Ge 41:39 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
So Pharaoh said to Joseph, "Since God has informed you of all this, there is no one so discerning and wise as you are.

Ge 41:41 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Pharaoh said to Joseph, "See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt ."

Ge 41:44 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Moreover, Pharaoh said to Joseph, "ThoughI am Pharaoh, yet without your permission no one shall raise his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt ."

Ge 41:54 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
and the seven years of famine began to come, just as Joseph had said, then there was famine in all the lands, but in all the land of Egypt there was bread.

Ge 41:55 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
So when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried out to Pharaoh for bread; and Pharaoh said to all the Egyptians, "Go to Joseph; whatever he says to you, you shall do ."

Ge 42:1 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Now Jacob saw that there was grain in Egypt, and Jacob said to his sons, "Why are you staring at one another?"

Ge 42:2 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He said, "Behold, I have heard that there is grain in Egypt; go down there and buy some for us from that place, so that we may live and not die ."

Ge 42:4 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
But Jacob did not send Joseph's brother Benjamin with his brothers, for he said, "I am afraid that harm may befall him."

Ge 42:7 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
When Joseph saw his brothers he recognized them, but he disguised himself to them and spoke to them harshly. And he said to them, "Where have you come from?" And they said, "From the land of Canaan, to buy food ."

Ge 42:9 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Joseph remembered the dreams which he had about them, and said to them, "You are spies; you have come to look at the undefended parts of our land ."

Ge 42:10 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then they said to him, "No, my lord, but your servants have come to buy food.

Ge 42:12 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Yet he said to them, "No, but you have come to look at the undefended parts of our land !"

Ge 42:13 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
But they said, "Your servants are twelve brothers in all, the sons of one man in the land of Canaan; and behold, the youngest is with our father today, and one is no longer alive."

Ge 42:14 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Joseph said to them, "It is asI said to you, you are spies;

Ge 42:18 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Now Joseph said to them on the third day, "Do this and live, forI fear God:

Ge 42:21 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then they said to one another, "Truly we are guilty concerning our brother, because we saw the distress of his soul when he pleaded with us, yet we would not listen; therefore this distress has come upon us."

Ge 42:22 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Reuben answered them, saying, "DidI not tell you, 'Do not sin against the boy '; and you would not listen? Now comes the reckoning for his blood ."

Ge 42:28 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then he said to his brothers, "My money has been returned, and behold, it is even in my sack ." And their hearts sank, and they turned trembling to one another, saying, "What is this that God has done to us?"

Ge 42:29 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
When they came to their father Jacob in the land of Canaan, they told him all that had happened to them, saying,

Ge 42:31 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"But we said to him, 'We are honest men; we are not spies.

Ge 42:33 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"The man, the lord of the land, said to us, 'By thisI will know that you are honest men: leave one of your brothers with me and take grain for the famine of your households, and go.

Ge 42:36 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Their father Jacob said to them, "You have bereaved me of my children: Joseph is no more, and Simeon is no more, and you would take Benjamin; all these things are against me."

Ge 42:37 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Reuben spoke to his father, saying, "You may put my two sons to death ifI do not bring him back to you; put him in my care, andI will return him to you."

Ge 42:38 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
But Jacob said, "My son shall not go down with you; for his brother is dead, and he alone is left. If harm should befall him on the journey you are taking, then you will bring my gray hair down to Sheol in sorrow ."

Ge 43:2 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
So it came about when they had finished eating the grain which they had brought from Egypt, that their father said to them, "Go back, buy us a little food ."

Ge 43:3 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Judah spoke to him, however, saying, "The man solemnly warned us, 'You shall not see my face unless your brother is with you.'

Ge 43:5 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"But if you do not send him, we will not go down; for the man said to us, 'You will not see my face unless your brother is with you.'"

Ge 43:6 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Israel said, "Why did you treat me so badly by telling the man whether you still had another brother ?"

Ge 43:7 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
But they said, "The man questioned particularly about us and our relatives, saying, 'Is your father still alive? Have you another brother ?' So we answered his questions. Could we possibly know that he would say, 'Bring your brother down '?"

Ge 43:8 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Judah said to his father Israel, "Send the lad with me and we will arise and go, that we may live and not die, we as well as you and our little ones.

Ge 43:11 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then their father Israel said to them, "If it must be so, then do this: take some of the best products of the land in your bags, and carry down to the man as a present, a little balm and a little honey, aromatic gum and myrrh, pistachio nuts and almonds.

Ge 43:16 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
When Joseph saw Benjamin with them, he said to his house steward, "Bring the men into the house, and slay an animal and make ready; for the men are to dine with me at noon ."

Ge 43:17 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
So the man did as Joseph said, and brought the men to Joseph's house.

Ge 43:18 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Now the men were afraid, because they were brought to Joseph's house; and they said, "It is because of the money that was returned in our sacks the first time that we are being brought in, that he may seek occasion against us and fall upon us, and take us for slaves with our donkeys ."

Ge 43:20 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
and said, "Oh, my lord, we indeed came down the first time to buy food,

Ge 43:23 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
He said, "Be at ease, do not be afraid. Your God and the God of your father has given you treasure in your sacks; I had your money ." Then he brought Simeon out to them.

Ge 43:27 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then he asked them about their welfare, and said, "Is your old father well, of whom you spoke? Is he still alive ?"

Ge 43:28 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
They said, "Your servant our father is well; he is still alive ." They bowed down in homage.

Ge 43:29 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
As he lifted his eyes and saw his brother Benjamin, his mother's son, he said, "Is this your youngest brother, of whom you spoke to me?" And he said, "May God be gracious to you, my son ."

Ge 43:31 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then he washed his face and came out; and he controlled himself and said, "Serve the meal ."

Ge 44:1 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then 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.

Ge 44:4 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
They had just gone out of the 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?

Ge 44:7 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
They said to him, "Why does my lord speak such words as these? Far be it from your servants to do such a thing.

Ge 44:10 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
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 ."

Ge 44:15 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Joseph said to them, "What is this deed that you have done? Do you not know that such a man asI can indeed practice divination ?"

Ge 44:16 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
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, both we and the one in whose possession the cup has been found ."

Ge 44:17 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
But he said, "Far be it from me to do this. The man in whose possession the cup has been found, he shall be my slave; but as for you, go up in peace to your father ."

Ge 44:18 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
Then Judah approached him, and said, "Oh my lord, may your servant please speak a word in my lord's ears, and do not be angry with your servant; for you are equal to Pharaoh.

Ge 44:19 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"My lord asked his servants, saying, 'Have you a father or a brother ?'

Ge 44:20 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"We said to my lord, 'We have an old father and a little child of his old age. Now his brother is dead, so he alone is left of his mother, and his father loves him.'

Ge 44:21 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"Then you said to your servants, 'Bring him down to me thatI may set my eyes on him.'

Ge 44:22 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"But we said to my lord, 'The lad cannot leave his father, for if he should leave his father, his father would die .'

Ge 44:23 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
"You said to your servants, however, 'Unless your youngest brother comes down with you, you will not see my face again .'

Ge 44:25 - [In Context|Read Chapter|Original Hebrew]
