Genesis 42

1  Now when Jacob saw that there was corn in Egypt, Jacob said unto his sons, Why do ye look one upon another?

2  And he said, Behold, I have heard that there is corn in Egypt: get you down thither, and buy for us from thence; that we may live, and not die.

3  And Joseph's ten brethren went down to buy corn in Egypt.

4  But Benjamin, Joseph's brother, Jacob sent not with his brethren; for he said, Lest peradventure mischief befall him.

5  And the sons of Israel came to buy corn among those that came: for the famine was in the land of Canaan.

6  And Joseph was the governor over the land, and he it was that sold to all the people of the land: and Joseph's brethren came, and bowed down themselves before him with their faces to the earth.

7  And Joseph saw his brethren, and he knew them, but made himself strange unto them, and spake roughly unto them; and he said unto them, Whence come ye? And they said, From the land of Canaan to buy food.

8  And Joseph knew his brethren, but they knew not him.

9  And Joseph remembered the dreams which he dreamed of them, and said unto them, Ye are spies; to see the nakedness of the land ye are come.

10  And they said unto him, Nay, my lord, but to buy food are thy servants come.
