and the men are afraid because they have been brought into the house of Joseph, and they say, `For the matter of the money which was put back in our bags at the commencement are we brought in -- to roll himself upon us, and to throw himself on us, and to take us for servants -- our asses also.'
And they come nigh unto the man who [is] over the house of Joseph, and speak unto him at the opening of the house,
and say, `O, my lord, we really come down at the commencement to buy food;
and it cometh to pass, when we have come in unto the lodging-place, and open our bags, that lo, each one's money [is] in the mouth of his bag, our money in its weight, and we bring it back in our hand;
and other money have we brought down in our hand to buy food; we have not known who put our money in our bags.'
And he saith, `Peace to you, fear not: your God and the God of your father hath given to you hidden treasure in your bags, your money came unto me;' and he bringeth out Simeon unto them.
And the man bringeth in the men into Joseph's house, and giveth water, and they wash their feet; and he giveth provender for their asses,
and they prepare the present until the coming of Joseph at noon, for they have heard that there they do eat bread.
And Joseph cometh into the house, and they bring to him the present which [is] in their hand, into the house, and bow themselves to him, to the earth;
and he asketh of them of peace, and saith, `Is your father well? the aged man of whom ye have spoken, is he yet alive?'
and they say, `Thy servant our father [is] well, he is yet alive;' and they bow, and do obeisance.
