27 And the seven thin & ill-favoured kine, that came up after them, are seven years; and the seven empty ears, blasted with the east wind, shall be seven & years of famine. 28 This is the thing which I have spoken unto Pharaoh: what God is about to do, he sheweth unto Pharaoh. 29 Behold, there come seven) · years ver. 34. of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt:

32 And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice, at is because the thing is nestablished by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass,

33 Now, therefore, let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt.

34 Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint @officers over the land, and take up the fifth part of the land of Egypt in the seven plenteous years."

35 And let them gather all the food of those good years that come, and lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities.

3 And Judah spake unto him, saying. The man did solemnly protest unto us, saying. Ye shall not see my face, except your brother be with you.

4 If thou wilt send our brother with us, we will go down and buy thee food: 5 But if thou wilt not send him, we wil not go down: for the man said unto us, Ye shall not see my fare, except your brother be with you.

6 And Israel said, Wherefore dealt ye ill with me as to tell the man whether ye had yet a brother?

7 And they said, The man asked us straitly of our state, and of our kindred, I saying, Is your father yet alive have ve another brother? and we told him accord ing to the tenor of these words: could we certainly know that he would say, Bring your brother down?

8 And Judah said unto Israel his father, Send the lad with me, and we will arise and go, that we may live, and not die both we, and thou, and also our little ones. 9 I will be surety for him; of my hand shalt thou require him: If I bring him

10 For except we had lingered, surely now we had returned μ this second time. 11 And their father Israel said unto them. If it must be so now, do this, take of the best fruits in the land in your vessels, and carry down the man a present," a little baim, and a httle boney, spices, and myrrh, nuts, and almonds:

12 And take double money in your band and the money that was brought | again” in the mouth of your sacks, carry if again in your hand; peradventure it as an oversight.

13 Take also your brother, and arise, go again unto the man:

14 And God Almighty give you mercy

15 And the men took that present, and they took double money in their hand, and Benjamin; and rose up, and went down to Egypt, and stood before Joseph. 16 And when Joseph saw Benjamin

with them, he said to the ruler" of his house, Bring these men home, and eslay, and make ready; for these men shall dine with me at noon.

17 And the man did as Joseph bade; and the man brought the men into Joseph's house.

18 And the men were afraid, because they were brought into Joseph's house; and they said, Because of the money that was returned in our sacks at the first time are we brought in, that he may seeks occasion against us, and fall upon us, and take us for bondmen, and our asses.

19 And they came near to the steward of Joseph's house, and they communed with him at the door of the house,

20 And said, O sir, we came indeed down at the first time to buy food:

21 And it came to pass, when we came to the inn, that we opened our sacks, and, behold, every man's money was in the mouth of his sack, our money in full weight: and we have brought it again in our haud.
