Joseph told the manager of his house what to do. "Fill the men's sacks with as much food as they can carry," he said. "Put each man's money in his sack.
"Then put my silver cup in the youngest one's sack. Put it there along with the money he paid for his grain." So the manager did what Joseph told him to do.
When morning came, the men were sent on their way with their donkeys.
They hadn't gone very far from the city when Joseph spoke to his manager. "Go after those men at once," he said. "Catch up with them. Say to them, 'My master was good to you. Why have you paid him back by doing evil?
Isn't this the cup my master drinks from? Doesn't he also use it to figure things out? You have done an evil thing.' "
When the manager caught up with them, he told them what Joseph had said.
