26 When Joseph came home, they brought into the house to him the present which was in their hand and abowed to the ground before him.
27 Then he asked them about their welfare, and said, “aIs your old father well, of whom you spoke? Is he still alive?”
32 So they served him by himself, and them by themselves, and the Egyptians who ate with him by themselves, because the Egyptians could not eat bread with the Hebrews, for that is 1aloathsome to the Egyptians.
1 aThen 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 1as Joseph had told him.
3 1As soon as it was light, the men were sent away, they with their donkeys.
4 They had just gone out of athe 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 adivination? You have done wrong in doing this.’ ”
8 “Behold, athe 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?
12 He searched, beginning with the oldest and ending with the youngest, and athe cup was found in Benjamin’s sack.
14 When Judah and his brothers came to Joseph’s house, he was still there, and athey 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 adivination?”
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 aslaves, both we and the one in whose 1possession the cup has been found.”
17 But he said, “Far be it from me to do this. The man in whose 1possession the cup has been found, he shall be my slave; but as for you, go up in peace to your father.”
