Genesis 42:1-38 (Yosef in Egypt) for 1st-5th

1

א)  וַיַּרְא יַעֲקֹב, כִּי יֶשׁשֶׁבֶר בְּמִצְרָיִם; וַיֹּאמֶר יַעֲקֹב לְבָנָיו, לָמָּה תִּתְרָאוּ

ב)  וַיֹּאמֶרהִנֵּה שָׁמַעְתִּי, כִּי יֶשׁשֶׁבֶר בְּמִצְרָיִם; רְדוּשָׁמָּה וְשִׁבְרוּלָנוּ מִשָּׁם, וְנִחְיֶה וְלֹא נָמוּת

1) Now, back in Cana’an, Ya’akov saw that there was grain in Egypt. So Ya’akov said to his sons, “Why are you just standing there looking at each other? 2) הִנֵּה Hineh, Look, I heard there’s grain in Egypt. Go down there and buy some for us, so we can live and not die.”

2

ג)  וַיֵּרְדוּ אֲחֵייוֹסֵף, עֲשָׂרָה, לִשְׁבֹּר בָּר, מִמִּצְרָיִם

ד)  וְאֶתבִּנְיָמִין אֲחִי יוֹסֵף, לֹאשָׁלַח יַעֲקֹב אֶתאֶחָיו:  כִּי אָמַר, פֶּןיִקְרָאֶנּוּ אָסוֹן

ה)  וַיָּבֹאוּ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, לִשְׁבֹּר בְּתוֹךְ הַבָּאִים:  כִּיהָיָה הָרָעָב, בְּאֶרֶץ כְּנָעַן

3) So ten of Yose’f brothers went down to bring grain from Egypt. 4) But Ya’akov didn’t send Binyamin, Yosef’s brother, because he said, “What if something terrible happened to him?” 5) So the sons of Yisrael/Ya’akov went down with everyone else who was going to buy grain, since the famine was also in Cana’an.

3

  ו) וְיוֹסֵף, הוּא הַשַּׁלִּיט עַלהָאָרֶץהוּא הַמַּשְׁבִּיר, לְכָלעַם הָאָרֶץ; וַיָּבֹאוּ אֲחֵי יוֹסֵף, וַיִּשְׁתַּחֲווּלוֹ אַפַּיִם אָרְצָה

ז)  וַיַּרְא יוֹסֵף אֶתאֶחָיו, וַיַּכִּרֵם; וַיִּתְנַכֵּר אֲלֵיהֶם וַיְדַבֵּר אִתָּם קָשׁוֹת, וַיֹּאמֶר אֲלֵהֶם מֵאַיִן בָּאתֶם, וַיֹּאמְרוּ, מֵאֶרֶץ כְּנַעַן לִשְׁבָּראֹכֶל

6) Meanwhile, Yosef was the person ruling the land (Egypt), and the one selling grain to all the peoples of the earth. Yosef’s brothers came and bowed with their faces right down to the ground. 7) Yosef saw his brothers and he recognized them. He disguised himself, and spoke harshly with them. He said to them, “Where are you coming from?” And they said, “From the land of Cana’an, to buy food.”

4

ח)  וַיַּכֵּר יוֹסֵף, אֶתאֶחָיו; וְהֵם, לֹא הִכִּרֻהוּ

ט)  וַיִּזְכֹּר יוֹסֵףאֵת הַחֲלֹמוֹת, אֲשֶׁר חָלַם לָהֶם; וַיֹּאמֶר אֲלֵהֶם מְרַגְּלִים אַתֶּם, לִרְאוֹת אֶתעֶרְוַת הָאָרֶץ בָּאתֶם

י)  וַיֹּאמְרוּ אֵלָיו, לֹא אֲדֹנִי; וַעֲבָדֶיךָ בָּאוּ, לִשְׁבָּראֹכֶל

יא)  כֻּלָּנוּ, בְּנֵי אִישׁאֶחָד נָחְנוּ; כֵּנִים אֲנַחְנוּ, לֹאהָיוּ עֲבָדֶיךָ מְרַגְּלִים

יב)  וַיֹּאמֶר, אֲלֵהֶם:  לֹא, כִּיעֶרְוַת הָאָרֶץ בָּאתֶם לִרְאוֹת

8) Yosef recognized his brothers, but they didn’t recognize him. 9) Yosef remembered the dreams he had dreamed about them. He said to them, “You’re spies! You came here to see this land’s secrets!” 10) They said to him, “No, my lord! Your servants just came here to buy food! 11) We are all the sons of one man. We, your servants, are really honest people, not spies.” 12) But Yosef said to them, “No, you came to spy this land’s secrets!”

5

יג)  וַיֹּאמְרוּ, שְׁנֵים עָשָׂר עֲבָדֶיךָ אַחִים אֲנַחְנוּ בְּנֵי אִישׁאֶחָדבְּאֶרֶץ כְּנָעַן; וְהִנֵּה הַקָּטֹן אֶתאָבִינוּ הַיּוֹם, וְהָאֶחָד אֵינֶנּוּ

13) They said, “We, your servants, are twelve brothers. We’re the sons of one single man in the land of Cana’an. But – הִנֵּה hineh, the youngest one is with our father right now, and one of them… well, he’s gone.

6

יד)  וַיֹּאמֶר אֲלֵהֶם, יוֹסֵף:  הוּא, אֲשֶׁר דִּבַּרְתִּי אֲלֵכֶם לֵאמֹרמְרַגְּלִים אַתֶּם

טו)  בְּזֹאת, תִּבָּחֵנוּ:  חֵי פַרְעֹה אִםתֵּצְאוּ מִזֶּה, כִּי אִםבְּבוֹא אֲחִיכֶם הַקָּטֹן הֵנָּה

טז)  שִׁלְחוּ מִכֶּם אֶחָד, וְיִקַּח אֶתאֲחִיכֶם, וְאַתֶּם הֵאָסְרוּ, וְיִבָּחֲנוּ דִּבְרֵיכֶם הַאֱמֶת אִתְּכֶם; וְאִםלֹאחֵי פַרְעֹה, כִּי מְרַגְּלִים אַתֶּם

14) Yosef said to them, “It’s just like I said. You’re spies! 15) If you want to prove you’re not, I swear, (as Par’oh lives), you will not leave this place unless your youngest brother comes here too. 16) Send one of you to get your other brother, and the rest of you will be imprisoned here, to prove you’re telling the truth. If not, I swear (as Par’oh lives), I’m sure you’re spies!”

7

יז)  וַיֶּאֱסֹף אֹתָם אֶלמִשְׁמָר, שְׁלֹשֶׁת יָמִים

יח)  וַיֹּאמֶר אֲלֵהֶם יוֹסֵף בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁלִישִׁי, זֹאת עֲשׂוּ וִחְיוּ; אֶתהָאֱלֹהִים, אֲנִי יָרֵא

יט)  אִםכֵּנִים אַתֶּםאֲחִיכֶם אֶחָד, יֵאָסֵר בְּבֵית מִשְׁמַרְכֶם; וְאַתֶּם לְכוּ הָבִיאוּ, שֶׁבֶר רַעֲבוֹן בָּתֵּיכֶם

כ)  וְאֶתאֲחִיכֶם הַקָּטֹן תָּבִיאוּ אֵלַי, וְיֵאָמְנוּ דִבְרֵיכֶם וְלֹא תָמוּתוּ; וַיַּעֲשׂוּכֵן

17) He put them all in prison together for three days. 18) Then Yosef said to them, on the third day, “If you do this, you will live, because I am a man who fears God. 19) If you are honest people, leave one of your brothers here in this place where you’re in prison, but the rest of you, go and bring grain to your starving households, 20) and bring your youngest brother to me. That way you’ll prove your words were truthful, and you won’t die.” So they did this.

8

כא)  וַיֹּאמְרוּ אִישׁ אֶלאָחִיו, אֲבָל אֲשֵׁמִים אֲנַחְנוּ עַלאָחִינוּ, אֲשֶׁר רָאִינוּ צָרַת נַפְשׁוֹ בְּהִתְחַנְנוֹ אֵלֵינוּ, וְלֹא שָׁמָעְנוּ; עַלכֵּן בָּאָה אֵלֵינוּ, הַצָּרָה הַזֹּאת

כב)  וַיַּעַן רְאוּבֵן אֹתָם לֵאמֹר, הֲלוֹא אָמַרְתִּי אֲלֵיכֶם לֵאמֹר אַלתֶּחֶטְאוּ בַיֶּלֶדוְלֹא שְׁמַעְתֶּם; וְגַםדָּמוֹ, הִנֵּה נִדְרָשׁ

21) They said to one another, “We are guilty about our brother. We saw when he was scared and crying out to us for help, and we didn’t listen. That’s why this bad situation is happening to us now.” 22) Re’uven answered them, “Didn’t I say to you, ‘Don’t do anything bad to the boy,’ but you didn’t listen. Now his blood… הִנֵּה Hineh– now we’re paying the price for it.”

9

כג)  וְהֵם לֹא יָדְעוּ, כִּי שֹׁמֵעַ יוֹסֵף:  כִּי הַמֵּלִיץ, בֵּינֹתָם

כד)  וַיִּסֹּב מֵעֲלֵיהֶם, וַיֵּבְךְּ; וַיָּשָׁב אֲלֵהֶם, וַיְדַבֵּר אֲלֵהֶם, וַיִּקַּח מֵאִתָּם אֶתשִׁמְעוֹן, וַיֶּאֱסֹר אֹתוֹ לְעֵינֵיהֶם

23) Now, they didn’t know that Yosef could understand what they were saying, because there was an interpreter between them. 24) Yosef turned away from them, and he cried. Then he came back to them, and spoke to them, and took one of them– Shim’on– and put him in prison while they all watched.

10

כה)  וַיְצַו יוֹסֵף, וַיְמַלְאוּ אֶתכְּלֵיהֶם בָּר, וּלְהָשִׁיב כַּסְפֵּיהֶם אִישׁ אֶלשַׂקּוֹ, וְלָתֵת לָהֶם צֵדָה לַדָּרֶךְ; וַיַּעַשׂ לָהֶם, כֵּן

כו)  וַיִּשְׂאוּ אֶתשִׁבְרָם, עַלחֲמֹרֵיהֶם; וַיֵּלְכוּ, מִשָּׁם

25) Then Yosef instructed people to fill up their jars with grain, and to return their money to each of their bags, and to give them the right amount of food for the journey. So this was done for them. 26) They loaded up their donkeys with grain, and they left.

11

כז)  וַיִּפְתַּח הָאֶחָד אֶתשַׂקּוֹ, לָתֵת מִסְפּוֹא לַחֲמֹרוֹבַּמָּלוֹן; וַיַּרְא, אֶתכַּסְפּוֹ, וְהִנֵּההוּא, בְּפִי אַמְתַּחְתּוֹ

כח)  וַיֹּאמֶר אֶלאֶחָיו הוּשַׁב כַּסְפִּי, וְגַם הִנֵּה בְאַמְתַּחְתִּי; וַיֵּצֵא לִבָּם, וַיֶּחֶרְדוּ אִישׁ אֶלאָחִיו לֵאמֹר, מַהזֹּאת עָשָׂה אֱלֹהִים, לָנוּ

27) When they got to where they were staying for the night, one of them opened up his bag to get food for his donkey. He saw his money! וְהִנֵּה V’hineh— it was right in the opening of his bag! 28) He said to his brothers, “My money is back! הִנֵּה Hineh, right here in my bag!” Their hearts sank. They trembled and said to each other, “Oh, NO! What has God done to us?”

12

כט)  וַיָּבֹאוּ אֶליַעֲקֹב אֲבִיהֶם, אַרְצָה כְּנָעַן; וַיַּגִּידוּ לוֹ, אֵת כָּלהַקֹּרֹת אֹתָם לֵאמֹר

ל)  דִּבֶּר הָאִישׁ אֲדֹנֵי הָאָרֶץ, אִתָּנוּקָשׁוֹת; וַיִּתֵּן אֹתָנוּ, כִּמְרַגְּלִים אֶתהָאָרֶץ

לא)  וַנֹּאמֶר אֵלָיו, כֵּנִים אֲנָחְנוּ:  לֹא הָיִינוּ, מְרַגְּלִים

לב)  שְׁנֵיםעָשָׂר אֲנַחְנוּ אַחִים, בְּנֵי אָבִינוּ; הָאֶחָד אֵינֶנּוּ, וְהַקָּטֹן הַיּוֹם אֶתאָבִינוּ בְּאֶרֶץ כְּנָעַן

לג)  וַיֹּאמֶר אֵלֵינוּ, הָאִישׁ אֲדֹנֵי הָאָרֶץ, בְּזֹאת אֵדַע, כִּי כֵנִים אַתֶּם:  אֲחִיכֶם הָאֶחָד הַנִּיחוּ אִתִּי, וְאֶתרַעֲבוֹן בָּתֵּיכֶם קְחוּ וָלֵכוּ

לד)  וְהָבִיאוּ אֶתאֲחִיכֶם הַקָּטֹן, אֵלַי, וְאֵדְעָה כִּי לֹא מְרַגְּלִים אַתֶּם, כִּי כֵנִים אַתֶּם; אֶתאֲחִיכֶם אֶתֵּן לָכֶם, וְאֶתהָאָרֶץ תִּסְחָרוּ

29) When they got back to their father Ya’akov in the land of Cana’an, they told him everything that had happened to him. They told him, 30) “The man who is the lord of the land spoke harshly to us, and he thought we were spies of the land. 31) But we said to him, ‘We’re honest men, we’re not spies! 32) We are twelve brothers, sons of our father, but… one of us is gone, and the youngest one of us is with our father in Cana’an in right now.’ 33) And the man who is the lord of the land said, “This is how I will know you are honest: Leave one of your brothers with me, and take grain for your starving households, and go. 34) And then bring your youngest brother to me, and then I will know that you’re not spies, that you’re honest, and I’ll give your brother back to you, and you’ll be able to travel around the land.” (This is what they told their father.)

13

לה)  וַיְהִי, הֵם מְרִיקִים שַׂקֵּיהֶם, וְהִנֵּהאִישׁ צְרוֹרכַּסְפּוֹ, בְּשַׂקּוֹ; וַיִּרְאוּ אֶתצְרֹרוֹת כַּסְפֵּיהֶם, הֵמָּה וַאֲבִיהֶםוַיִּירָאוּ

35) Then they all emptied their bags, וְהִנֵּה v’hineh– everyone’s packet of money was in his bag, and when they saw their packets of money, they, and their father – they were all afraid.

14

לו)  וַיֹּאמֶר אֲלֵהֶם יַעֲקֹב אֲבִיהֶם, אֹתִי שִׁכַּלְתֶּם:  יוֹסֵף אֵינֶנּוּ, וְשִׁמְעוֹן אֵינֶנּוּ, וְאֶתבִּנְיָמִן תִּקָּחוּ, עָלַי הָיוּ כֻלָּנָה

36) Ya’akov their father said to them, “You have made me suffer loss! Yosef is gone, and now Shimon is gone, and you want to take Binyamin too? Oh, why me? Why has all of this happened to me?”

15

לז)  וַיֹּאמֶר רְאוּבֵן, אֶלאָבִיו לֵאמֹר, אֶתשְׁנֵי בָנַי תָּמִית, אִםלֹא אֲבִיאֶנּוּ אֵלֶיךָ; תְּנָה אֹתוֹ עַליָדִי, וַאֲנִי אֲשִׁיבֶנּוּ אֵלֶיךָ

37) Re’uven said to his father, “I’ll bring him back. If I don’t, you can kill MY two sons. Let me take responsibility for him now, and I’ll bring him back to you.”

16

לח)  וַיֹּאמֶר, לֹאיֵרֵד בְּנִי עִמָּכֶם:  כִּיאָחִיו מֵת וְהוּא לְבַדּוֹ נִשְׁאָר, וּקְרָאָהוּ אָסוֹן בַּדֶּרֶךְ אֲשֶׁר תֵּלְכוּבָהּ, וְהוֹרַדְתֶּם אֶתשֵׂיבָתִי בְּיָגוֹן, שְׁאוֹלָה

38) But he (Ya’akov) said, “My son will not go down there with you! His brother is dead! He’s the only one left. If anything terrible happens to him on the journey you’re going on, you will send my grey hair down into death.”
