Jay P. Green's Literal Translation 1993

 

   

42:1And Jacob saw that grain was in Egypt. And Jacob said to his sons, Why do you look at each other?
42:2And he said, Behold! I have heard grain is in Egypt. Go down there and buy for us from there, that we may live and not die.
42:3And Joseph's ten brothers went down to buy grain from Egypt.
42:4And Jacob did not send Benjamin, Joseph's brother, with his brothers, for he said, Lest harm happen to him.
42:5And among those coming, the sons of Israel came to buy. For the famine was in land of Canaan.
42:6And Joseph was the potentate over the land, he selling to all the people of the earth. And Joseph's brothers came in and bowed to him, face down to the earth.
42:7And Joseph saw his brothers and recognized them; but he remained a stranger to them and spoke harsh things to them, and said to them, From where have you come? And they said, From the land of Canaan to buy food.
42:8And Joseph recognized his brothers, but they did not recognize him.
42:9And Joseph remembered the dreams which he had dreamed about them. And he said to them, You are spies! You have come in to see the bareness of the land.
42:10And they said to him, No, my lord, but your servants have come to buy food.
42:11We are all of us sons of one man; we are honest; your servants are not spies.
42:12And he said to them, No, but you have come to see the bareness of the land.
42:13And they said, Your servants are twelve brothers; we are sons of one man in the land of Canaan; and, lo, the youngest is with our father today; and one is not.
42:14And Joseph said to them, This is that which I have spoken to you, saying, You are spies!
42:15By this you shall be tested. As Pharaoh lives you shall not leave here except your younger brother come in here.
42:16Send one of you and let him bring your brother; and you be bound, and let your words be proven, whether truth is with you. And if not, as Pharaoh lives, so you are spies.
42:17And he gathered them into custody three days.
42:18And on the third day Joseph said to them, Do this and live. I fear God.
42:19If you are honest, let one of your brothers be bound in your prison house, and you go bring grain for the famine of your houses.
42:20And you bring your youngest brother to me, and let your words be true, and you shall not die. And so they did.
42:21And they said each to his brother, We are truly guilty because of our brother whom we saw in distress of his soul, when he begged us, and we did not hear. So this pain has come to us.
42:22And Reuben replied to them, saying, Did I not speak to you, saying, Do not sin against the youth, and you did not listen? And, behold, his blood is also required.
42:23And they did not know that Joseph heard, for the interpreter was between them.
42:24And he turned away from them and wept, and returned to them and spoke to them. And he took Simeon from them and bound him before their eyes.
42:25And Joseph commanded, and they filled their vessels with grain and returned their silver, each into his sack, and gave to them food for the way; and he did so to them.
42:26And they lifted their grain on their asses and walked from there.
42:27And one opened his sack to give fodder to his ass in the camp, and he saw his silver. And, behold! It was in the mouth of his sack!
42:28And he said to his brothers, My silver has been put back, and also look in my sack. And their hearts went, and they were each terrified, saying to his brother, What is this God has done to us?
42:29And they came to their father Jacob to the land of Canaan. And they told him all that met them, saying,
42:30The man, the lord of the land, spoke harsh things to us and considered us as spies in the land.
42:31And we said to him, We are honest; we are not spies.
42:32We are twelve brothers, sons of our father; the one is not, and the youngest is with our father today in the land of Canaan.
42:33And the man, the lord of the land, said to us, By this I shall know that you are honest; leave your one brother with me, and take and go for the famine of your houses.
42:34And bring your youngest brother to me, and I may know that you are not spies, but you are honest. I will give your brother to you and you may travel in the land.
42:35And it happened. They were emptying their sacks, and, behold, each one's bundle of silver was in his sack; and they saw the bundles of their silver, and they were afraid.
42:36And their father Jacob said to them, You have bereaved me. Joseph is not, and Simeon is not, and you will take Benjamin? All of these are against me.
42:37And Reuben spoke to his father, saying, You may kill my two sons if I do not bring him to you. Give him into my hand, and I will return him to you.
42:38And he said, My son shall not go down with you; for his brother is dead, and he alone is left. And if harm should happen to him in the way in which you go, you would bring down my gray hair in sorrow to the grave.
