"Later, our father said, 'Go again and buy us a little more food.'
We said to our father, 'We cannot go without our youngest brother. Without our youngest brother, we will not be allowed to see the governor.'
Then my father said to us, 'You know that my wife Rachel gave me two sons.
When one son left me, I thought, "Surely he has been torn apart by a wild animal," and I haven't seen him since.
Now you want to take this son away from me also. But something terrible might happen to him, and I would be miserable until the day I die.'
Now what will happen if we go home to our father without our youngest brother? He is so important in our father's life that
when our father sees the young boy is not with us, he will die. And it will be our fault. We will cause the great sorrow that kills our father.
"I gave my father a guarantee that the young boy would be safe. I said to my father, 'If I don't bring him back to you, you can blame me all my life.'
So now, please allow me to stay here and be your slave, and let the young boy go back home with his brothers.
I cannot go back to my father if the boy is not with me. I couldn't stand to see my father that sad."
