Genesis 43:1-6 RSV

1 Now the famine was severe in the land.
2 And when they had eaten the grain which they had brought from Egypt, their father said to them, "Go again, buy us a little food."
3 But Judah said to him, "The man solemnly warned us, saying, 'You shall not see my face, unless your brother is with you.'
4 If you will send our brother with us, we will go down and buy you food;
5 but if you will not send him, we will not go down, for the man said to us, 'You shall not see my face, unless your brother is with you.'"
6 Israel said, "Why did you treat me so ill as to tell the man that you had another brother?"
