Bible: Genesis 42:9-13

42:9 Then Joseph remembered 1  the dreams he had dreamed about them, and he said to them, “You are spies; you have come to see if our land is vulnerable! 2 

42:10 But they exclaimed, 3  “No, my lord! Your servants have come to buy grain for food! 42:11 We are all the sons of one man; we are honest men! Your servants are not spies.”

42:12No,” he insisted, “but you have come to see if our land is vulnerable.” 4  42:13 They replied, “Your servants are from a family of twelve brothers. 5  We are the sons of one man in the land of Canaan. The youngest is with our father at this time, 6  and one is no longer alive.” 7
