Genesis 42:35-37 New English Translation (NET Bible)

35 When they were emptying their sacks, there was each man’s bag of money in his sack! When they and their father saw the bags of money, they were afraid. 36 Their father Jacob said to them, “You are making me childless! Joseph is gone.[a] Simeon is gone.[b] And now you want to take[c] Benjamin! Everything is against me.”

37 Then Reuben said to his father, “You may[d] put my two sons to death if I do not bring him back to you. Put him in my care[e] and I will bring him back to you.”

35 As they were emptying their sacks, there in each man’s sack was his pouch of silver! When they and their father saw the money pouches, they were frightened. 36 Their father Jacob said to them, “You have deprived me of my children. Joseph is no more and Simeon is no more, and now you want to take Benjamin. Everything is against me!

37 Then Reuben said to his father, “You may put both of my sons to death if I do not bring him back to you. Entrust him to my care, and I will bring him back.”
