Context
Benjamin and the Silver Cup

1And he commanded the steward of his house, saying, Fill the men's sacks with food, as much as they can carry, and put every man's money in his sack's mouth. 2And put my cup, the silver cup, in the sack's mouth of the youngest, and his corn money. And he did according to the word that Joseph had spoken. 3As soon as the morning was light, the men were sent away, they and their asses. 4And when they were gone out of the city, and not yet far off, Joseph said to his steward, Up, follow after the men; and when you do overtake them, say to them, Why have you rewarded evil for good? 5Is not this it in which my lord drinks, and whereby indeed he divines? you have done evil in so doing. 6And he overtook them, and he spoke to them these same words. 7And they said to him, Why said my lord these words? God forbid that your servants should do according to this thing: 8Behold, the money, which we found in our sacks' mouths, we brought again to you out of the land of Canaan: how then should we steal out of your lord's house silver or gold? 9With whomsoever of your servants it be found, both let him die, and we also will be my lord's slaves. 10And he said, Now also let it be according to your words: he with whom it is found shall be my servant; and you shall be blameless. 11Then they speedily took down every man his sack to the ground, and opened every man his sack. 12And he searched, and began at the oldest, and left at the youngest: and the cup was found in Benjamin's sack. 13Then they rent their clothes, and laded every man his ass, and returned to the city. 14And Judah and his brothers came to Joseph's house; for he was yet there: and they fell before him on the ground. 15And Joseph said to them, What deed is this that you have done? know you not that such a man as I can certainly divine? 16And Judah said, What shall we say to my lord? what shall we speak? or how shall we clear ourselves? God has found out the iniquity of your servants: behold, we are my lord's servants, both we, and he also with whom the cup is found. 17And he said, God forbid that I should do so: but the man in whose hand the cup is found, he shall be my servant; and as for you, get you up in peace to your father.
