Genesis 40

1
And it came to pass after these things, [that] the cup-bearer of the king of Egypt and the baker offended their lord the king of Egypt.
2
And Pharaoh was wroth with his two chamberlains -- with the chief of the cup-bearers and with the chief of the bakers;
3
and he put them in custody into the house of the captain of the life-guard, into the tower-house, into the place where Joseph was imprisoned.
4
And the captain of the life-guard appointed Joseph to them, that he should attend on them. And they were [several] days in custody.
5
And they dreamed a dream, both of them in one night, each his dream, each according to the interpretation of his dream, the cup-bearer and the baker of the king of Egypt, who were imprisoned in the tower-house.
6
And Joseph came in to them in the morning, and looked on them, and behold, they were sad.
7
And he asked Pharaoh's chamberlains that were with him in custody in his lord's house, saying, Why are your faces [so] sad to-day?
8
And they said to him, We have dreamt a dream, and there is no interpreter of it. And Joseph said to them, [Do] not interpretations [belong] to God? tell me [your dreams], I pray you.
9
Then the chief of the cup-bearers told his dream to Joseph, and said to him, In my dream, behold, a vine was before me;
10
and in the vine were three branches; and it was as though it budded: its blossoms shot forth, its clusters ripened into grapes.
11
And Pharaoh's cup was in my hand; and I took the grapes, and pressed them into Pharaoh's cup, and gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand.
12
And Joseph said to him, This is the interpretation of it: the three branches are three days.
13
In yet three days will Pharaoh lift up thy head and restore thee to thy place, and thou shalt deliver Pharaoh's cup into his hand, after the former manner when thou wast his cup-bearer.
14
Only bear a remembrance with thee of me when it goes well with thee, and deal kindly, I pray thee, with me, and make mention of me to Pharaoh, and bring me out of this house;
15
for indeed I was stolen out of the land of the Hebrews, and here also have I done nothing that they should put me into the dungeon.
16
And when the chief of the bakers saw that the interpretation was good, he said to Joseph, I also was in my dream, and behold, three baskets of white bread were on my head.
17
And in the uppermost basket there were all manner of victuals for Pharaoh that the baker makes, and the birds ate them out of the basket upon my head.
18
And Joseph answered and said, This is the interpretation of it: the three baskets are three days.
19
In yet three days will Pharaoh lift up thy head from off thee, and hang thee on a tree; and the birds will eat thy flesh from off thee.
20
And it came to pass the third day -- Pharaoh's birthday -- that he made a feast to all his bondmen. And he lifted up the head of the chief of the cup-bearers, and the head of the chief of the bakers among his bondmen.
21
And he restored the chief of the cup-bearers to his office of cup-bearer again; and he gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand.
22
And he hanged the chief of the bakers, as Joseph had interpreted to them.
23
But the chief of the cup-bearers did not remember Joseph, and forgot him.


Genesis 41

1
And it came to pass at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh dreamed, and behold, he stood by the river.
2
And behold, there came up out of the river seven kine, fine-looking and fat-fleshed, and they fed in the reed-grass.
3
And behold, seven other kine came up after them out of the river, bad-looking and lean-fleshed, and stood by the kine on the bank of the river.
4
And the kine that were bad-looking and lean-fleshed ate up the seven kine that were fine-looking and fat. And Pharaoh awoke.
5
And he slept and dreamed the second time; and behold, seven ears of corn grew up on one stalk, fat and good.
6
And behold, seven ears, thin and parched with the east wind, sprung up after them.
7
And the thin ears devoured the seven fat and full ears. And Pharaoh awoke; and behold, it was a dream.
8
And it came to pass in the morning, that his spirit was troubled; and he sent and called for all the scribes of Egypt, and all the sages who were therein, and Pharaoh told them his dream; but [there was] none to interpret them to Pharaoh.
9
Then spoke the chief of the cup-bearers to Pharaoh, saying, I remember mine offences this day.
10
Pharaoh was wroth with his bondmen, and put me in custody into the captain of the life-guard's house, me and the chief of the bakers.
11
And we dreamed a dream in one night, I and he; we dreamed each according to the interpretation of his dream.
12
And there was there with us a Hebrew youth, a bondman of the captain of the life-guard, to whom we told [them], and he interpreted to us our dreams; to each he interpreted according to his dream.
13
And it came to pass, just as he interpreted to us, so it came about: me has he restored to my office, and him he hanged.
14
Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph; and they brought him hastily out of the dungeon. And he shaved [himself], and changed his clothes, and came in to Pharaoh.
15
And Pharaoh said to Joseph, I have dreamt a dream, and there is none to interpret it. And I have heard say of thee, thou understandest a dream to interpret it.
16
And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: God will give Pharaoh an answer of peace.
17
And Pharaoh said to Joseph, In my dream, behold, I stood on the bank of the river.
18
And behold, there came up out of the river seven kine, fat-fleshed and of fine form, and they fed in the reed-grass.
19
And behold, seven other kine came up after them, poor, and very ill-formed, and lean-fleshed -- such as I never saw in all the land of Egypt for badness.
20
And the lean and bad kine ate up the seven first fat kine;
21
and they came into their belly, and it could not be known that they had come into their belly; and their look was bad, as at the beginning. And I awoke.
22
And I saw in my dream, and behold, seven ears came up on one stalk, full and good.
23
And behold, seven ears, withered, thin, parched with the east wind, sprung up after them;
24
and the thin ears devoured the seven good ears. And I told it to the scribes; but there was none to make it known to me.
25
And Joseph said to Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh is one. What God will do he has made known to Pharaoh.
26
The seven fine kine are seven years; and the seven good ears are seven years: the dream is one.
27
And the seven lean and bad kine that came up after them are seven years; and the seven empty ears, parched with the east wind, will be seven years of famine.
28
This is the word which I have spoken to Pharaoh: what God is about to do he has let Pharaoh see.
29
Behold, there come seven years of great plenty throughout the land of Egypt.
30
And there will arise after them seven years of famine; and all the plenty will be forgotten in the land of Egypt, and the famine will waste away the land.
31
And the plenty will not be known afterwards in the land by reason of that famine; for it will be very grievous.
32
And as regards the double repetition of the dream to Pharaoh, it is that the thing is established by God, and God will hasten to do it.
33
And now let Pharaoh look himself out a man discreet and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt.
34
Let Pharaoh do [this]: let him appoint overseers over the land, and take the fifth part of the land of Egypt during the seven years of plenty,
35
and let them gather all the food of these coming good years, and lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, for food in the cities, and keep [it].
36
And let the food be as store for the land for the seven years of famine, which will be in the land of Egypt, that the land perish not through the famine.
37
And the word was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all his bondmen.
38
And Pharaoh said to his bondmen, Shall we find [one] as this, a man in whom the Spirit of God is?
39
And Pharaoh said to Joseph, Since God has made all this known to thee, there is none [so] discreet and wise as thou.
40
Thou shalt be over my house, and according to thy commandment shall all my people regulate themselves; only concerning the throne will I be greater than thou.
41
And Pharaoh said to Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt.
42
And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it on Joseph's hand, and arrayed him in clothes of byssus, and put a gold chain on his neck.
43
And he caused him to ride in the second chariot that he had; and they cried before him, Bow the knee! and he set him over all the land of Egypt.
44
And Pharaoh said to Joseph, I am Pharaoh; and without thee shall no man lift up his hand or his foot in all the land of Egypt.
45
And Pharaoh called Joseph's name Zaphnath-paaneah, and gave him as wife Asnath the daughter of Potipherah the priest in On. And Joseph went out over the land of Egypt.
46
And Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from Pharaoh, and passed through the whole land of Egypt.
47
And in the seven years of plenty the land brought forth by handfuls.
48
And he gathered up all the food of the seven years that was in the land of Egypt, and put the food in the cities; the food of the fields of the city, which were round about it, he laid up in it.
49
And Joseph laid up corn as sand of the sea exceeding much, until they left off numbering; for it was without number.
50
And to Joseph were born two sons before the year of famine came, whom Asnath the daughter of Potipherah the priest in On bore to him.
51
And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh -- For God has made me forget all my toil, and all my father's house.
52
And the name of the second he called Ephraim -- For God has caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.
53
And the seven years of plenty that were in the land of Egypt were ended;
54
and the seven years of the dearth began to come, according as Joseph had said. And there was dearth in all lands; but in all the land of Egypt there was bread.
55
And all the land of Egypt suffered from the dearth. And the people cried to Pharaoh for bread; and Pharaoh said to all the Egyptians, Go to Joseph: what he says to you, that do.
56
And the famine was on all the earth. And Joseph opened every place in which there was [provision], and sold grain to the Egyptians; and the famine was grievous in the land of Egypt.
57
And all countries came into Egypt to Joseph, to buy [grain], because the famine was grievous on the whole earth.


Genesis 42

1
And Jacob saw that there was grain in Egypt, and Jacob said to his sons, Why do ye look one upon another?
2
And he said, Behold, I have heard that there is grain in Egypt; go down thither and buy [grain] for us from thence, in order that we may live, and not die.
3
And Joseph's ten brethren went down to buy [grain] out of Egypt.
4
But Benjamin, Joseph's brother, Jacob sent not with his brethren; for he said, Lest mischief may befall him.
5
So the sons of Israel came to buy [grain] among those that came; for the famine was in the land of Canaan.
6
And Joseph, he was the governor over the land -- he it was that sold [the corn] to all the people of the land. And Joseph's brethren came and bowed down to him, the face to the earth.
7
And Joseph saw his brethren, and knew them; but he made himself strange to them, and spoke roughly to them, and said to them, Whence come ye? And they said, From the land of Canaan, to buy food.
8
And Joseph knew his brethren, but they did not know him.
9
And Joseph remembered the dreams that he had dreamt of them; and he said to them, Ye are spies: to see the exposed places of the land ye are come.
10
And they said to him, No, my lord; but to buy food are thy servants come.
11
We are all one man's sons; we are honest: thy servants are not spies.
12
And he said to them, No; but to see the exposed places of the land are ye come.
13
And they said, Thy servants were twelve brethren, sons of one man, in the land of Canaan; and behold, the youngest is this day with our father, and one is not.
14
And Joseph said to them, That is it that I have spoken to you, saying, Ye are spies.
15
By this ye shall be put to the proof: as Pharaoh lives, ye shall not go forth hence, unless your youngest brother come hither!
16
Send one of you, that he may fetch your brother, but ye shall be imprisoned, and your words shall be put to the proof, whether the truth is in you; and if not, as Pharaoh lives, ye are spies.
17
And he put them in custody three days.
18
And Joseph said to them the third day, This do, that ye may live: I fear God.
19
If ye are honest, let one of your brethren remain bound in the house of your prison, but go ye, carry grain for the hunger of your households;
20
and bring your youngest brother to me, in order that your words be verified, and that ye may not die. And they did so.
21
Then they said one to another, We are indeed guilty concerning our brother, whose anguish of soul we saw when he besought us, and we did not hearken; therefore this distress is come upon us.
22
And Reuben answered them, saying, Did I not speak to you, saying, Do not sin against the lad? But ye did not hearken; and now behold, his blood also is required.
23
And they did not know that Joseph understood, for the interpreter was between them.
24
And he turned away from them, and wept. And he returned to them, and spoke to them, and took Simeon from among them, and bound him before their eyes.
25
And Joseph gave orders to fill their vessels with corn, and to restore every man's money into his sack, and to give them provision for the way. And thus did they to them.
26
And they loaded their asses with their grain, and departed thence.
27
And one of them opened his sack to give his ass food in the inn, and saw his money, and behold, it was in the mouth of his sack.
28
And he said to his brethren, My money is returned [to me], and behold, it is even in my sack. And their heart failed [them], and they were afraid, saying one to another, What is this [that] God has done to us?
29
And they came into the land of Canaan, to Jacob their father, and told him all that had befallen them, saying,
30
The man, the lord of the land, spoke roughly to us, and treated us as spies of the land.
31
And we said to him, We are honest; we are not spies:
32
we are twelve brethren, sons of our father; one is not, and the youngest is this day with our father in the land of Canaan.
33
And the man, the lord of the land, said to us, Hereby shall I know that ye are honest: leave one of your brethren with me, and take [for] the hunger of your households, and go,
34
and bring your youngest brother to me, and I shall know that ye are not spies, but are honest. Your brother will I give up to you; and ye may trade in the land.
35
And it came to pass as they emptied their sacks, that behold, every man had his bundle of money in his sack; and they saw their bundles of money, they and their father, and were afraid.
36
And Jacob their father said to them, Ye have bereaved me of children: Joseph is not, and Simeon is not, and ye will take Benjamin! All these things are against me.
37
And Reuben spoke to his father, saying, Slay my two sons if I bring him not back to thee: give him into my hand, and I will bring him to thee again.
38
But he said, My son shall not go down with you, for his brother is dead, and he alone is left; and if mischief should befall him by the way in which ye go, then would ye bring down my grey hairs with sorrow to Sheol.


Genesis 43

1
And the famine was grievous in the land.
2
And it came to pass, when they had finished eating the grain which they had brought from Egypt, that their father said to them, Go again, buy us a little food.
3
And Judah spoke to him, saying, The man did positively testify to us, saying, Ye shall not see my face, unless your brother be with you.
4
If thou wilt send our brother with us, we will go down and buy thee food;
5
but if thou do not send [him], we will not go down, for the man said to us, Ye shall not see my face, unless your brother be with you.
6
And Israel said, Why did ye deal [so] ill with me [as] to tell the man whether ye had yet a brother?
7
And they said, The man asked very closely after us, and after our kindred, saying, Is your father yet alive? have ye a brother? And we told him according to the tenor of these words. Could we at all know that he would say, Bring your brother down?
8
And Judah said to Israel his father, Send the lad with me, and we will arise and go, that we may live, and not die, both we and thou and our little ones.
9
I will be surety for him: of my hand shalt thou require him; if I bring him not to thee, and set him before thy face, then shall I be guilty toward thee for ever.
10
For had we not lingered, we should now certainly have returned already twice.
11
And their father Israel said to them, If it is then so, do this: take of the best fruits in the land in your vessels, and carry down the man a gift: a little balsam and a little honey, tragacanth and ladanum, pistacia-nuts and almonds.
12
And take other money in your hand, and the money that was returned to you in the mouth of your sacks, carry back in your hand: perhaps it is an oversight.
13
And take your brother, and arise, go again to the man.
14
And the Almighty łGod give you mercy before the man, that he may send away your other brother and Benjamin! And I, if I be bereaved of children, am bereaved.
15
And the men took that gift, and took double money in their hand, and Benjamin, and rose up, and went down to Egypt, and came before Joseph.
16
And Joseph saw Benjamin with them, and said to the [man] who was over his house, Bring the men into the house, and slaughter cattle, and make ready; for the men shall eat with me at noon.
17
And the man did as Joseph had said; and the man brought the men into Joseph's house.
18
And the men were afraid because they were brought into Joseph's house, and said, Because of the money that was returned to us in our sacks at the beginning are we brought in, that he may turn against us, and fall upon us and take us for bondmen, and our asses.
19
And they came up to the man that was over Joseph's house, and they spoke to him at the door of the house,
20
and said, Ah! my lord, we came indeed down at the first to buy food.
21
And it came to pass when we came to the inn, that we opened our sacks, and behold, [every] man's money was in the mouth of his sack, our money according to its weight; and we have brought it again in our hand.
22
And other money have we brought down in our hand to buy food. We do not know who put our money in our sacks.
23
And he said, Peace be to you, fear not: your God, and the God of your father, has given you treasure in your sacks; your money came to me. And he brought Simeon out to them.
24
And the man brought the men into Joseph's house, and gave water, and they washed their feet; and he gave their asses food.
25
And they made ready the gift for Joseph's coming at noon; for they had heard that they should eat bread there.
26
When Joseph came home, they brought him the gift that was in their hand, into the house, and bowed themselves to him to the earth.
27
And he asked them of their welfare, and said, Is your father well -- the old man of whom ye spoke? Is he yet alive?
28
And they said, Thy servant our father is well; he is yet alive. And they bowed, and made obeisance.
29
And he lifted up his eyes and saw his brother Benjamin, his mother's son, and said, Is this your younger brother of whom ye spoke to me? And he said, God be gracious to thee, my son!
30
And Joseph made haste, for his bowels burned for his brother; and he sought [a place] to weep, and he went into the chamber, and wept there.
31
And he washed his face, and came out, and controlled himself, and said, Set on bread.
32
And they set on for him by himself, and for them by themselves, and for the Egyptians who ate with him by themselves; because the Egyptians might not eat bread with the Hebrews, for that is an abomination unto the Egyptians.
33
And they sat before him, the firstborn according to his birthright, and the youngest according to his youth; and the men marvelled one at another.
34
And he had portions carried to them from before him. And Benjamin's portion was five times greater than the portions of them all. And they drank, and made merry with him.
