Moreover we have brought down with us additional money to buy food. We do not know who put our money in our sacks."
He replied, "Rest assured, do not be afraid; your God and the God of your father must have put treasure in your sacks for you; I received your money." Then he brought Simeon out to them.
When the steward had brought the men into Joseph's house, and given them water, and they had washed their feet, and when he had given their donkeys fodder,
they made the present ready for Joseph's coming at noon, for they had heard that they would dine there.
When Joseph came home, they brought him the present that they had carried into the house, and bowed to the ground before him.
He inquired about their welfare, and said, "Is your father well, the old man of whom you spoke? Is he still alive?"
They said, "Your servant our father is well; he is still alive." And they bowed their heads and did obeisance.
Then he looked up and saw his brother Benjamin, his mother's son, and said, "Is this your youngest brother, of whom you spoke to me? God be gracious to you, my son!"
With that, Joseph hurried out, because he was overcome with affection for his brother, and he was about to weep. So he went into a private room and wept there.
Then he washed his face and came out; and controlling himself he said, "Serve the meal."
They served him by himself, and them by themselves, and the Egyptians who ate with him by themselves, because the Egyptians could not eat with the Hebrews, for that is an abomination to the Egyptians.
