Judah Pleads for Benjamin
Judah Pleads for Benjamin (Genesis 44:18 - Genesis 44:34)
44:18 
Then Judah came near unto him, and said, Oh my lord, let thy servant, I pray thee, speak a word in my lord's ears, and let not thine anger burn against thy servant: for thou art even as Pharaoh.
 
44:19 
My lord asked his servants, saying, Have ye a father, or a brother?
 
44:20 
And we said unto my lord, We have a father, an old man, and a child of his old age, a little one; and his brother is dead, and he alone is left of his mother, and his father loveth him.
 
44:21 
And thou saidst unto thy servants, Bring him down unto me, that I may set mine eyes upon him.
 
44:22 
And we said unto my lord, The lad cannot leave his father: for if he should leave his father, his father would die.
 
44:23 
And thou saidst unto thy servants, Except your youngest brother come down with you, ye shall see my face no more.
 
44:24 
And it came to pass when we came up unto thy servant my father, we told him the words of my lord.
 
44:25 
And our father said, Go again, and buy us a little food.
 
44:26 
And we said, We cannot go down: if our youngest brother be with us, then will we go down: for we may not see the man's face, except our youngest brother be with us.
 
44:27 
And thy servant my father said unto us, Ye know that my wife bare me two sons:
 
44:28 
And the one went out from me, and I said, Surely he is torn in pieces; and I saw him not since:
 
44:29 
And if ye take this also from me, and mischief befall him, ye shall bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave.
 
44:30 
Now therefore when I come to thy servant my father, and the lad be not with us; seeing that his life is bound up in the lad's life;
 
44:31 
It shall come to pass, when he seeth that the lad is not with us, that he will die: and thy servants shall bring down the gray hairs of thy servant our father with sorrow to the grave.
 
44:32 
For thy servant became surety for the lad unto my father, saying, If I bring him not unto thee, then I shall bear the blame to my father for ever.
 
44:33 
Now therefore, I pray thee, let thy servant abide instead of the lad a bondman to my lord; and let the lad go up with his brethren.
 
44:34 
For how shall I go up to my father, and the lad be not with me? lest peradventure I see the evil that shall come on my father.
