Genesis 42: 2 And he said: 'Behold, I have heard that there is corn in Egypt. Get you down thither, and buy for us from thence; that we may live, and not die.'
Genesis 42: 3 And Joseph's ten brethren went down to buy corn from Egypt.
Genesis 42: 4 But Benjamin, Joseph's brother, Jacob sent not with his brethren; for he said: 'Lest peradventure harm befall him.'
Genesis 42: 5 And the sons of Israel came to buy among those that came; for the famine was in the land of Caanan.
Genesis 42: 6 And Joseph was the governor over the land; he it was that sold to all the people of the land. And Joseph's brethren came, and bowed down to him with their faces to the earth.
Genesis 42: 7 And Joseph saw his brethren, and he knew them, but made himself strange unto them, and spoke roughly with them; and he said unto them: 'Whence come ye?' And they said: 'From the land of Canaan to buy food.'
Genesis 42: 8 And Joseph knew his brethren, but they knew him not.
Genesis 42: 9 And Joseph remembered the dreams which he dreamed of them, and said unto them: 'Ye are spies; to see the nakedness of the land ye are come.'
Genesis 42: 10 And they said unto him: 'Nay, my lord, but to buy food are thy servants come.
Genesis 42: 11 We are all one man's sons; we are upright men, thy servants are no spies.'
