Abafowabo bakaJosefa babuyela eGibhithe loBhenjamini

Indlala yasisiba nzima a  elizweni. Kwasekusithi sebeqedile ukudla ababebuye lakho eGibhithe, uyise wathi kubo: Buyelani, lisithengele ukudla okulutshwana. UJuda wasekhuluma kuye wathi: Leyondoda yasiqonqosela
 yasiqonqosela: Heb.  yafakaza lokufakaza.
yathi: Kalisoze libubone ubuso bami ngaphandle kokuthi umnawenu libe laye c .
Uba uthuma umnawethu lathi, sizakwehla siyekuthengela ukudla, kodwa uba ungamthumi, kasiyikwehla, ngoba leyondoda yathi kithi: Kalisoze libubone ubuso bami ngaphandle kokuthi umnawenu lilaye. UIsrayeli wasesithi: Lenzelani okubi kimi ngokuyazisa leyondoda ukuthi liselomnawenu? Basebesithi: Leyondoda yabuzisisa
 yabuzisisa: Heb.  yabuza lokubuza.
mayelana lathi langezihlobo zethu, isithi: Uyihlo usaphila yini? Lilomnawenu yini? Sayilandisela ngalawomazwi
 ngalawo-: Heb.  umlomo.
; ukwazi sasikwazi yini ukuthi izakuthi: Yehlani lomnawenu?
UJuda wasesithi kuIsrayeli uyise: Thuma umfana lami; besesisukuma sihambe, ukuze siphile singafi f , lathi, lawe, labantwanyana bethu. Mina ngizakuba yisibambiso sakhe; uzamdinga esandleni sami; uba ngingambuyisi kuwe ngimbeke phambi kwakho, ngizakuba lecala kuwe zonke izinsuku g . 10 Isibili uba besingalibalanga, qotho ngabe khathesi sesibuyile kabili. 11 UIsrayeli uyise wasesithi kubo: Uba kunjalo khathesi, yenzani lokhu; thathani okwezithelo ezikhethiweyo zelizwe ezitsheni zenu, liyehlisele leyondoda isipho, inhlaka eyingcosana h , loluju oluyingcosana, isinongo, lemure*, imkelu yepistakiyo, lama-alimondi; 12 lithathe imali iphindwe kabili esandleni senu; futhi imali eyabuyiselwayo emlonyeni wamasaka enu i  liyibuyisele esandleni senu, mhlawumbe kwaba yisiphosiso. 13 Lithathe futhi umfowenu, lisukume, libuyele kuleyondoda. 14 UNkulunkulu uSomandla j  kaliphe isihawu phambi kwaleyondoda, ukuze alikhululele omunye umfowenu loBhenjamini. Mina-ke, uba ngemukwa abantwana, ngiyemukwa.

15 Amadoda asethatha lesosipho, athatha imali ephindwe kabili esandleni sawo loBhenjamini; asukuma ehlela eGibhithe, ema phambi kukaJosefa. 16 Kwathi uJosefa embona uBhenjamini elabo, wathi kumphathi wendlu yakhe k : Ngenisa lamadoda endlini, uhlabe isifuyo, ulungise, ngoba lamadoda azakudla lami emini. 17 Indoda yenza njengoba uJosefa etshilo, lendoda yawangenisa amadoda endlini kaJosefa. 18 Amadoda asesesaba, ngoba engeniswe endlini kaJosefa; athi: Singenisiwe ngenxa yemali eyabuyiselwa emasakeni ethu kuqala, ukuze asijume
 asijume: Heb.  azigiqe phezu kwethu.
ehlele phezu kwethu, asithathe sibe yizigqili, labobabhemi bethu.
19 Asesondela endodeni eyayingumphathi wendlu kaJosefa, akhuluma kuyo emnyango wendlu, 20 athi: Mayuyu nkosi yami! Sehla lokwehla kuqala ukuthenga ukudla m . 21 Kwasekusithi sesifike endlini yezihambi, savula amasaka ethu, khangela-ke, imali yalowo lalowo yayisemlonyeni wesaka lakhe n , imali yethu ngesisindo sayo; siyibuyisile esandleni sethu. 22 Lenye imali sehlelayo esandleni sethu, ukuthenga ukudla. Kasazi ukuthi ngubani ofake imali yethu emasakeni ethu. 23 Wasesithi: Ukuthula kakube kini, lingesabi. UNkulunkulu wenu loNkulunkulu kayihlo ulinikile inotho emasakeni enu. Imali yenu yeza kimi. Wasemkhuphela kubo uSimeyoni. 24 Indoda yasiwangenisa amadoda endlini kaJosefa, yawanika amanzi; asegeza inyawo zawo; yasinika obabhemi bawo ukudla o . 25 Aselungisa isipho p  waze wafika uJosefa emini, ngoba ayezwile ukuthi bazakudla isinkwa lapho.

26 Kwathi uJosefa esefikile endlini, amlethela endlini isipho esasisesandleni sawo, amkhothamela emhlabathini q . 27 Wasewabuza impilo wathi: Uyaphila uyihlo yini, ixhegu elalikhuluma ngalo? Lisaphila yini r ? 28 Asesithi: Inceku yakho ubaba isekhona, isaphila. Asekhothamela phansi amkhonza. 29 Wasephakamisa amehlo akhe, wabona uBhenjamini umfowabo, indodana kanina s , wathi: Nguye lo umnawenu omncinyane yini elakhuluma ngaye kimi t ? Wathi futhi: UNkulunkulu kabe lomusa kuwe, ndodana yami. 30 UJosefa wasephangisa, ngoba imibilini yakhe yatshisekela umfowabo u ; wadinga indawo yokukhala inyembezi; wangena ekamelweni eliphakathi, wakhala inyembezi khona v . 31 Esegezile ubuso bakhe, waphuma; esezibambile w  wathi: Fakani isinkwa. 32 Bamfakela yedwa, lawo wodwa, lamaGibhithe, ayesidla laye, wodwa, ngoba amaGibhithe ayengedle isinkwa lamaHebheru, ngoba lokho kwakuyisinengiso kumaGibhithe x . 33 Asehlala phambi kwakhe, izibulo njengobuzibulo balo, lecinathunjana njengobucinathunjana balo; lamadoda amangala enye kwenye. 34 Wasewabela kulokhu okwakuphambi kwakhe y ; kodwa isabelo sikaBhenjamini saphindwa kahlanu z  okwedlula isabelo sawo wonke. Anatha asenatha kakhulu laye.
