Genesis 43:6-8 Living Bible (TLB)
6 “Why did you ever tell him you had another brother?” Israel moaned. “Why did you have to treat me like that?”
7 “But the man specifically asked us about our family,” they told him. “He wanted to know whether our father was still living and he asked us if we had another brother, so we told him. How could we know that he was going to say, ‘Bring me your brother’?”
8 Judah said to his father, “Send the lad with me and we will be on our way; otherwise we will all die of starvation—and not only we, but you and all our little ones.
