Genesis 42:5-15

GW 5 Israel's sons left with the others who were going to buy grain, because there was also famine in Canaan. NIV 5 So Israel’s sons were among those who went to buy grain, for there was famine in the land of Canaan also. GW 6 As governor of the country, Joseph was selling grain to everyone. So when Joseph's brothers arrived, they bowed in front of him with their faces touching the ground. NIV 6 Now Joseph was the governor of the land, the person who sold grain to all its people. So when Joseph’s brothers arrived, they bowed down to him with their faces to the ground. GW 7 As soon as Joseph saw his brothers, he recognized them. But he acted as if he didn't know them and spoke harshly to them. "Where did you come from?" he asked them. "From Canaan, to buy food," they answered. NIV 7 As soon as Joseph saw his brothers, he recognized them, but he pretended to be a stranger and spoke harshly to them. “Where do you come from?” he asked. “From the land of Canaan,” they replied, “to buy food.” GW 8 Even though Joseph recognized his brothers, they didn't recognize him. NIV 8 Although Joseph recognized his brothers, they did not recognize him. GW 9 Then he remembered the dreams he once had about them. "You're spies!" he said to them, "And you've come to find out where our country is unprotected." NIV 9 Then he remembered his dreams about them and said to them, “You are spies! You have come to see where our land is unprotected.” GW 10 "No, sir!" they answered him. "We've come to buy food. NIV 10 “No, my lord,” they answered. “Your servants have come to buy food. GW 11 We're all sons of one man. We're honest men, not spies." NIV 11 We are all the sons of one man. Your servants are honest men, not spies.” GW 12 He said to them, "No! You've come to find out where our country is unprotected." NIV 12 “No!” he said to them. “You have come to see where our land is unprotected.” GW 13 They answered him, "We were 12 brothers, sons of one man in Canaan. The youngest brother stayed with our father, and the other one is no longer with us." NIV 13 But they replied, “Your servants were twelve brothers, the sons of one man, who lives in the land of Canaan. The youngest is now with our father, and one is no more.” GW 14 "It's just as I told you," Joseph said to them. "You're spies! NIV 14 Joseph said to them, “It is just as I told you: You are spies! GW 15 This is how you'll be tested: I solemnly swear, as surely as Pharaoh lives, that you won't leave this place unless your youngest brother comes here. NIV 15 And this is how you will be tested: As surely as Pharaoh lives, you will not leave this place unless your youngest brother comes here.
