Gen 43:1-34 KJV –

1 And the famine [was] sore in the land.

2 And it came to pass, when they had eaten up the corn which they had brought out of Egypt, their father said unto them, Go again, buy us a little food.

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.
(Correspondence 374)

4 If thou wilt send our brother with us, we will go down and buy thee food:
(Correspondence 374)

5 But if thou wilt not send [him], we will not go down: for the man said unto us, Ye shall not see my face, except your brother [be] with you.
(Correspondence 374)

6 And Israel said, Wherefore dealt* ye [so] ill with me, [as] to tell the man whether ye had yet a brother?
(Metonymy* 562)

7 And they said, The man asked us straitly of our state, and of our kindred, saying, [Is] your father yet alive? have ye [another] brother? and we told him according to the tenor of these words: could we certainly know that he would say, Bring your brother down?
(Pleonasm 408)

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.
(Polysyndeton 211; Pleonasm* 416)

9 I will be surety for him; of my hand shalt thou require him: if I bring him not unto thee, and set him before thee, then let me bear the blame for ever:

10 For except we had lingered, surely now we had returned 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 balm, and a little honey, spices, and myrrh, nuts, and almonds:
(Metonymy* 602)

12 And take double* money in your hand; and the money that was brought again in the mouth of your sacks, carry [it] again in your hand; peradventure it [was] an oversight:
(Metonymy* 585)

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

14 And God Almighty give you mercy before the man, that he may send away your other brother, and Benjamin. If I be bereaved [of my children], I am bereaved.

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.
(Metonymy* 585)

16 And when Joseph saw Benjamin with them, he said to the ruler of his house*, Bring [these] men home, and slay, and make ready; for [these] men shall dine with me at noon.
(Metonymy* 573)

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 seek occasion against us, and fall upon us, and take us for bondmen, and our asses.
(Idioma 854)

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 hand.

22 And other money have we brought down in our hands to buy food: we cannot tell who put our money in our sacks.

23 And he said, Peace [be] to you*, fear not: your God, and the God of your father, hath given you treasure in your sacks: I had your money. And he brought Simeon out unto them.
(Synecdoche* 627)

24 And the man brought the men into Joseph’s house, and gave [them] water, and they washed their feet; and he gave their asses provender.

25 And they made ready the present against Joseph came at noon: for they heard that they should eat bread* there.
(Synecdoche* 627)

26 And when Joseph came home, they brought him the present which [was] in their hand into the house, and bowed themselves to him to the earth.

27 And he asked them of [their] welfare, and said, [Is] your father well, the old man of whom ye spake? [Is] he yet alive?

28 And they answered, Thy servant our father [is] in good health, he [is] yet alive. And they bowed down their heads, and made obeisance.

29 And he lifted up his eyes, and saw his brother Benjamin, his mother’s son, and said, [Is] this your younger brother, of whom ye spake unto me? And he said, God be gracious unto thee, my son.

30 And Joseph made haste; for his bowels did yearn upon his brother: and he sought [where] to weep; and he entered into [his] chamber, and wept there.

31 And he washed his face, and went out, and refrained himself, and said, Set on bread*.
(Synecdoche* 627)

32 And they set on for him by himself, and for them by themselves, and for the Egyptians, which did eat with him, by themselves: because the Egyptians might not eat bread with the Hebrews; for that [is] an abomination unto the Egyptians.
(Heterosis 534)

33 And they sat before him, the firstborn according to his birthright, and the youngest according to his youth: and the men marvelled one at another*.
(Ellipsis* 63)

34 And he took [and sent] messes unto them from before him: but Benjamin’s mess was five times so much as any of theirs. And they drank, and were merry with him.
