Genesis 43:1
And the famine was sore in the land.
The Return to Egypt with Benjamin

1And the famine was sore in the land. 2And it came to pass, when they had eaten up the corn which they had brought out of Egypt, their father said to them, Go again, buy us a little food. 3And Judah spoke to him, saying, The man did solemnly protest to us, saying, You shall not see my face, except your brother be with you. 4If you will send our brother with us, we will go down and buy you food: 5But if you will not send him, we will not go down: for the man said to us, You shall not see my face, except your brother be with you. 6And Israel said, Why dealt you so ill with me, as to tell the man whether you had yet a brother? 7And they said, The man asked us straightly of our state, and of our kindred, saying, Is your father yet alive? have you another brother? and we told him according to the tenor of these words: could we certainly know that he would say, Bring your brother down? 8And 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 you, and also our little ones. 9I will be surety for him; of my hand shall you require him: if I bring him not to you, and set him before you, then let me bear the blame for ever: 10For except we had lingered, surely now we had returned this second time. 11And their father Israel said to them, If it must be so now, do this; take of the best fruits in the land in your vessels, and carry down the man a present, a little balm, and a little honey, spices, and myrrh, nuts, and almonds: 12And take double money in your hand; and the money that was brought again in the mouth of your sacks, carry it again in your hand; peradventure it was an oversight: 13Take also your brother, and arise, go again to the man: 14And God Almighty give you mercy before the man, that he may send away your other brother, and Benjamin. If I be bereaved of my children, I am bereaved. 15And the men took that present, and they took double money in their hand and Benjamin; and rose up, and went down to Egypt, and stood before Joseph.
