Context
Judah Pleads for Benjamin

18Then Judah came near to him, and said, Oh my lord, let your servant, I pray you, speak a word in my lord's ears, and let not your anger burn against your servant: for you are even as Pharaoh. 19My lord asked his servants, saying, Have you a father, or a brother? 20And we said to my lord, We have a father, an old man, and a child of his old age, a little one; and his brother is dead, and he alone is left of his mother, and his father loves him. 21And you said to your servants, Bring him down to me, that I may set my eyes on him. 22And we said to my lord, The lad cannot leave his father: for if he should leave his father, his father would die. 23And you said to your servants, Except your youngest brother come down with you, you shall see my face no more. 24And it came to pass when we came up to your servant my father, we told him the words of my lord. 25And our father said, Go again, and buy us a little food. 26And we said, We cannot go down: if our youngest brother be with us, then will we go down: for we may not see the man's face, except our youngest brother be with us. 27And your servant my father said to us, You know that my wife bore me two sons: 28And the one went out from me, and I said, Surely he is torn in pieces; and I saw him not since: 29And if you take this also from me, and mischief befall him, you shall bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave. 30Now therefore when I come to your servant my father, and the lad be not with us; seeing that his life is bound up in the lad's life; 31It shall come to pass, when he sees that the lad is not with us, that he will die: and your servants shall bring down the gray hairs of your servant our father with sorrow to the grave. 32For your servant became surety for the lad to my father, saying, If I bring him not to you, then I shall bear the blame to my father for ever. 33Now therefore, I pray you, let your servant abide instead of the lad a slave to my lord; and let the lad go up with his brothers. 34For how shall I go up to my father, and the lad be not with me? lest peradventure I see the evil that shall come on my father.
