Jacob: 6 Why did you do this to me? Why did you tell this man you had another brother?
Joseph’s Brothers: 7 The man questioned us about every detail of ourselves and our relatives. He asked if our father was still alive and if we had another brother. What we told him was only in answer to all of his questions. How could we in any way know he would tell us to bring our brother down there?
Judah (to Israel, his father): 8 Send the boy with me, and let’s be on our way. It’s the only way we’re going to live through this famine and not die of hunger—you, us, and all of our little ones.
