1 Then Joseph instructed his chamberlain as follows: 'Fill these men's sacks with as much food as they can carry, and put each man's money in the mouth of his sack.
Gen 42:25 Gen 43:16 Gen 24:2 Gen 43:2 Gen 43:19 Isa 3:1
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.
2Cor 8:8 Deut 8:2 Deut 8:16 Deut 13:3 Gen 42:15-16 Gen 42:20 Gen 43:32
3 At daybreak, the men were sent off with their donkeys.
4 They had gone only a little way from the city, when Joseph said to his chamberlain, 'Away now and follow those men. When you catch up with them, say to them, "Why have you repaid good with evil?
John 10:32 Ps 35:12 1Sam 24:17 2Chr 20:11 Deut 2:16 Ps 109:5 Prov 17:13
5 Is this not what my lord uses for drinking and also for reading omens? What you have done is wrong." '
Gen 30:27 Gen 44:15 2Kgs 21:6 Lev 19:26 1Kgs 20:33 Deut 18:10-14
6 So when he caught up with them he repeated these words.
7 They asked him, 'What does my lord mean? Your servants would never think of doing such a thing.
Gen 38:16-18 2Kgs 8:13 2Sam 20:20 Eccl 7:1 Gen 34:25-31 Gen 35:22 Gen 37:18-32
8 Look, we brought you back the money we found in the mouths of our sacks, all the way from Canaan. Are we likely to have stolen silver or gold from your master's house?
Deut 5:19 Exod 20:15 Gen 42:21 Gen 42:27 Gen 42:35 Gen 43:12 Gen 43:21-22
9 Whichever of your servants is found to have it shall die, and the rest of us shall be slaves of my lord.'
Gen 31:32 Acts 25:11 Gen 43:18 Gen 44:16 Job 31:38-40 Ps 7:3-5
10 'Very well, then, it shall be as you say,' he replied, 'the one on whom it is found shall become my slave, but the rest of you can go free.'
Exod 22:3 Gen 44:17 Gen 44:33 Matt 18:24-25
11 Each of them quickly lowered his sack to the ground, and each opened his own.
12 He searched, beginning with the eldest and ending with the youngest, and found the cup in Benjamin's sack.
Gen 42:36-38 Gen 43:14 Gen 43:33 Gen 44:2 Gen 44:26-32
13 Then they tore their clothes, and when each man had reloaded his donkey they returned to the city.

14 When Judah and his brothers arrived at Joseph's house he was still there, so they fell on the ground in front of him.
Gen 37:7-10 Gen 43:16 Gen 43:25 Gen 50:18 Phil 2:10-11
15 'What do you mean by doing this?' Joseph asked them. 'Did you not know that a man such as I am is a reader of omens?'
Exod 32:1 Gen 3:13 Gen 4:10 Gen 21:26 Gen 39:8 Gen 44:4-5
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.'
Gen 44:9 Dan 9:7 Num 32:23 Acts 2:37 Deut 25:1 Ezra 9:10 Ezra 9:15
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.'
2Sam 23:3 Gen 18:25 Gen 26:29 Gen 37:32-33 Gen 42:18 Ps 75:2 Prov 17:15
18 At this, Judah went up to him and said, 'May it please my lord, let your servant have a word privately with my lord. Do not be angry with your servant, for you are like Pharaoh himself.
Exod 32:22 Gen 18:30 Gen 41:40 Gen 18:32 Gen 41:44 2Sam 14:12 Acts 2:29
19 My lord questioned his servants, "Have you father or brother?"
Gen 43:7 Gen 42:7-10 Gen 43:29
20 And we said to my lord, "We have an old father, and a younger brother born of his old age. His brother is dead, so he is the only one by that mother now left, and his father loves him."
Gen 37:3 Gen 42:38 Gen 35:18 Gen 37:19 Gen 37:33-35 Gen 42:13 Gen 42:36
21 Then you said to your servants, "Bring him down to me, so that I can set eyes on him."
Gen 42:15 Gen 42:20 Amos 9:4 Gen 43:29 Jer 24:6 Jer 40:4
22 We replied to my lord, "The boy cannot leave his father. If he leaves him, his father will die."
Gen 42:38 Gen 44:30
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."
Gen 43:3 Gen 43:5 Gen 42:15-20
24 When we went back to your servant my father, we repeated to him what my lord had said.
25 So when our father said, "Go back and get us a little food,"
Gen 43:2 Gen 43:5
26 we said, "We cannot go down. We shall go only if our youngest brother is with us for, unless our youngest brother is with us, we shall not be admitted to the man's presence."
Gen 43:4-5 Luke 11:7
27 So your servant our father said to us, "You know that my wife bore me two children.
Gen 46:19 Gen 29:18-21 Gen 29:28 Gen 30:22-25 Gen 35:16-18
28 When one of them left me, I supposed that he must have been torn to pieces, and I have never seen him since.
Gen 37:33 Gen 37:13-14 Gen 42:36 Gen 42:38
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."
Gen 42:38 Gen 42:36 Gen 44:31 Deut 31:17 Gen 43:14 Ps 88:3-4
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;
1Sam 18:1 1Sam 25:29 2Sam 18:33 Gen 44:17 Gen 44:31 Gen 44:34
31 and your servants will have sent your servant our father's white head down to Sheol with grief.
Gen 44:29 Gen 37:35 1Sam 4:17-18 1Sam 22:22 1Thess 4:13 2Cor 7:10 Gen 37:26-27
32 Now your servant went surety to my father for the boy. I said: "If I do not bring him back to you, let me bear the blame before my father all my life."
Gen 43:8-9 Gen 43:16
33 Let your servant stay, then, as my lord's slave in place of the boy, I implore you, and let the boy go back with his brothers.
1John 3:16 Exod 32:32 Heb 7:22 Rom 5:7-10 Rom 9:3
34 How indeed could I go back to my father and not have the boy with me? I could not bear to see the misery that would overwhelm my father.'
