Bible: Genesis 44:14-17

44:14 So Judah and his brothers 1  came back to Joseph’s house. He was still there, 2  and they threw themselves to the ground before him. 44:15 Joseph said to them, “What did you think you were doing? 3  Don’t you know that a man like me can find out things like this by divination? 4 

44:16 Judah replied, “What can we say 5  to my lord? What can we speak? How can we clear ourselves? 6  God has exposed the sin of your servants! 7  We are now my lord’s slaves, we and the one in whose possession the cup was found.”

44:17 But Joseph said, “Far be it from me to do this! The man in whose hand the cup was found will become my slave, but the rest of 8  you may go back 9  to your father in peace.”
