saw the anguish of his soul, when he besought us, and we would not hear; therefore is this
distress come upon us.

the country.
Gen 42:31 And we said unto him, We are true men; we are no spies:

with our father in the land of Kena’an.
Gen 42:33 And the man, the lord of the country, said unto us, Hereby shall I know that you are
true men; leave one of your brethren here with me, and take food for the famine of your
households, and be gone:
Gen 42:34 And bring your youngest brother unto me: then shall I know that you are no spies,
but that you are true men: so will I deliver you your brother, and you shall traffic in the
land.

you: deliver him into my hand, and I will bring him to you again.

Gen 43:1 And the famine was sore in the land.

You shall not see my face, except your brother be with you.
Gen 43:4 If you will send our brother with us, we will go down and buy you food:
Gen 43:5 But if you will not send him, we will not go down: for the man said unto us, You shall
not see my face, except your brother be with you.
Gen 43:6 And Yisrael said, Wherefore dealt you so ill with me, as to tell the man whether you
had yet a brother?
Gen 43:7 And they said, The man asked us straitly of our state, and of our kindred, saying, Is
your father yet alive? have you 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?
Gen 43:8 And Yahudah said unto Yisra’el his father, Send the lad with me, and we will arise and
go; that we may live, and not die, both we, and you, and also our little ones.
Gen 43:9 I will be surety for him; of my hand shall you require him: if I bring him not unto you,
and set him before you, then let me bear the blame for ever:
Gen 43:10 For except we had lingered, surely now we had returned this second time.
Gen 43:11 And their father Yisra’el 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:
Gen 43:12 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:
Gen 43:13 Take also your brother, and arise, go again unto the man:
Gen 43:14 And El Shaddai give you mercy before the man, that he may send away your other
brother, and Benyamin. If I be bereaved of my children, I am bereaved.

Benyamin; and rose up, and went down to Egypt, and stood before Yosef.

these men home, and slay, and make ready; for these men shall dine with me at noon.

Gen 43:18 And the men were afraid, because they were brought into Yosef’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
donkeys.
Gen 43:19 And they came near to the steward of Yosef’s house, and they communed with him at
the door of the house,
Gen 43:20 And said, O sir, we came indeed down at the first time to buy food:
Gen 43:21 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.
Gen 43:22 And other money have we brought down in our hands to buy food: we cannot tell
who put our money in our sacks.
Gen 43:23 And he said, Peace be to you, fear not: your Elohim, and the Elohim of your father,
has given you treasure in your sacks: I had your money. And he brought Shim’on out unto
them.
Gen 43:24 And the man brought the men into Yosef’s house, and gave them water, and they
washed their feet; and he gave their donkeys provender.
Gen 43:25 And they made ready the present against Yosef came at noon: for they heard that
they should eat bread there.
Gen 43:26 And when Yosef came home, they brought him the present which was in their hand
into the house, and bowed themselves to him to the earth.
Gen 43:27 And he asked them of their welfare, and said, Is your father well, the old man of
whom you spake? Is he yet alive?
Gen 43:28 And they answered, Your servant our father is in good health, he is yet alive. And
they bowed down their heads, and made obeisance.
Gen 43:29 And he lifted up his eyes, and saw his brother Benyamin, his mother’s son, and said,
Is this your younger brother, of whom you spoke unto me? And he said, Elohim be gracious
unto you, my son.
Reader 7 (6th Day Friday Morning Double Portion)
Gen 43:30 And Yosef 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.
Gen 43:31 And he washed his face, and went out, and refrained himself, and said, Set on bread.
Gen 43:32 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.
Gen 43:33 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.
Gen 43:34 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.
Gen 44:1 And he commanded the steward of his house, saying, Fill the men’s sacks with food,
as much as they can carry, and put every man’s money in his sack’s mouth.
Gen 44:2 And put my cup, the silver cup, in the sack’s mouth of the youngest, and his grain
money. And he did according to the word that Yosef had spoken.
Gen 44:3 As soon as the morning was light, the men were sent away, they and their donkeys.
Gen 44:4 And when they were gone out of the city, and not yet far off, Yosef said unto his
steward, Up, follow after the men; and when you do overtake them, say unto them, Why
have you rewarded evil for good?
Gen 44:5 Is not this it in which my lord drinks, and whereby indeed he learns by experience?
you have done evil in so doing.
Gen 44:6 And he overtook them, and he spake unto them these same words.
Gen 44:7 And they said unto him, Why saith my lord these words? Elohim forbid that your
servants should do according to this thing:
Gen 44:8 Behold, the money, which we found in our sacks’ mouths, we brought again unto you
out of the land of Kena’an: how then should we steal out of your lord’s house silver or gold?
Gen 44:9 With whomsoever of your servants it be found, both let him die, and we also will be
my lord’s bondmen.
Gen 44:10 And he said, Now also let it be according unto your words: he with whom it is found
shall be my servant; and you shall be blameless.
Gen 44:11 Then they speedily took down every man his sack to the ground, and opened every
man his sack.
Gen 44:12 And he searched, and began at the eldest, and left at the youngest: and the cup was
found in Benyamin’s sack.
Gen 44:13 Then they rent their clothes, and laded every man his donkey, and returned to the
city.
Gen 44:14 And Yahudah and his brethren came to Yosef’s house; for he was yet there: and they
fell before him on the ground.
Gen 44:15 And Yosef said unto them, What deed is this that you have done? know you not that
such a man as I does diligently observe?
Gen 44:16 And Yahudah said, What shall we say unto my lord? what shall we speak? or how
shall we clear ourselves? Elohim has found out the lawlessness of your servants: behold, we
are my lord’s servants, both we, and he also with whom the cup is found.
Gen 44:17 And he said, Elohim forbid that I should do so: but the man in whose hand the cup is
found, he shall be my servant; and as for you, get you up in peace unto your father.
Haftarah (Shabbat Evening Portion)
1Ki 3:15 And Shlomo awoke; and, behold, it was a dream. And he came to Yerushalayim, and
stood before the ark of the covenant of YHWH, and offered up burnt offerings, and offered
peace offerings, and made a feast to all his servants.
1Ki 3:16 Then came there two women, that were harlots, unto the king, and stood before him.
1Ki 3:17 And the one woman said, O my lord, I and this woman dwell in one house; and I was
delivered of a child with her in the house.
1Ki 3:18 And it came to pass the third day after that I was delivered, that this woman was
delivered also: and we were together; there was no stranger with us in the house, save we
two in the house.
1Ki 3:19 And this woman’s child died in the night; because she overlaid it.
1Ki 3:20 And she arose at midnight, and took my son from beside me, while your handmaid
slept, and laid it in her bosom, and laid her dead child in my bosom.
1Ki 3:21 And when I rose in the morning to give my child suck, behold, it was dead: but when I
had considered it in the morning, behold, it was not my son, which I did bear.
1Ki 3:22 And the other woman said, Nay; but the living is my son, and the dead is your son. And
this said, No; but the dead is your son, and the living is my son. Thus they spake before the
king.
1Ki 3:23 Then said the king, The one saith, This is my son that liveth, and your son is the dead:
and the other saith, Nay; but your son is the dead, and my son is the living.
1Ki 3:24 And the king said, Bring me a sword. And they brought a sword before the king.
1Ki 3:25 And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one, and half to
the other.
1Ki 3:26 Then spake the woman whose the living child was unto the king, for her bowels
yearned upon her son, and she said, O my lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay
it. But the other said, Let it be neither mine nor yours, but divide it.
1Ki 3:27 Then the king answered and said, Give her the living child, and in no wise slay it: she is
the mother thereof.
1Ki 3:28 And all Yisra’el heard of the judgment which the king had judged; and they feared the
king: for they saw that the wisdom of Elohim was in him, to do judgment.
1Ki 4:1 So king Shlomo was king over all Yisra’el.
