Bible: Genesis 42:18-24
42:21 They said to one other, 11 “Surely we’re being punished 12 because of our brother, because we saw how distressed he was 13 when he cried to us for mercy, but we refused to listen. That is why this distress 14 has come on us!” 42:22 Reuben said to them, “Didn’t I say to you, ‘Don’t sin against the boy,’ but you wouldn’t listen? So now we must pay for shedding his blood!” 15 42:23 (Now 16 they did not know that Joseph could understand them, 17 for he was speaking through an interpreter.) 18 42:24 He turned away from them and wept. When he turned around and spoke to them again, 19 he had Simeon taken 20 from them and tied up 21 before their eyes.
