Genesis 43:6-8 New English Translation (NET Bible)
6 Israel said, “Why did you bring this trouble on me by telling the man you had one more brother?”
7 They replied, “The man questioned us thoroughly about ourselves and our family, saying, ‘Is your father still alive? Do you have another brother?’ So we answered him in this way. How could we possibly know that he would say, ‘Bring your brother down’?”
8 Then Judah said to his father Israel, “Send the boy with me and we will go immediately. Then we will live and not die—we and you and our little ones.
