Chapter 43 - Genesis

1 And the famine was sore in the land.1 At ang kagutom ay mahigpit sa lupain.
2 And it came to pass, when they had eaten up the corn which they had brought out of Egypt, their father said unto them, Go again, buy us a little food.2 At nangyari, nang makain na nila ang trigong kanilang dinala mula sa Egipto, na sinabi sa kanila ng kanilang ama, Kayo'y pumaroong muli, ibili ninyo tayo ng kaunting pagkain.
3 And Judah spake unto him, saying, The man did solemnly protest unto us, saying, Ye shall not see my face, except your brother be with you.3 At si Juda ay nagsalita sa kaniya, na sinasabi, Ipinahayag sa aming mahigpit ng lalaking yaon, na sinasabi, Hindi ninyo makikita ang aking mukha, maliban na ipagsama ninyo ang inyong kapatid.
4 If thou wilt send our brother with us, we will go down and buy thee food:4 Kung pasasamahin mo sa amin ang aming kapatid, ay bababa kami, at ibibili ka namin ng pagkain.
5 But if thou wilt not send him, we will not go down: for the man said unto us, Ye shall not see my face, except your brother be with you.5 Datapuwa't kung hindi mo paparoroonin ay hindi kami bababa: sapagka't sinabi sa amin ng lalaking yaon, Hindi ninyo makikita ang aking mukha, malibang kasama ninyo ang inyong kapatid.
6 And Israel said, Wherefore dealt ye so ill with me, as to tell the man whether ye had yet a brother?6 At sinabi ni Israel, Bakit ninyo ako ginawan ng masama, na inyong sinabi sa lalake na mayroon pa kayong ibang kapatid?
7 And they said, The man asked us straitly of our state, and of our kindred, saying, Is your father yet alive? have ye another brother? and we told him according to the tenor of these words: could we certainly know that he would say, Bring your brother down?7 At kanilang sinabi, Tinanong kami ng buong siyasat, tungkol sa amin, at tungkol sa aming kamaganakan, na sinasabi, Buhay pa ba ang inyong ama? May iba pa ba kayong kapatid? At isinaysay namin sa kaniya ayon sa mga salitang ito: saan namin malalaman, kaniyang sasabihin, Ibababa ninyo rito ang inyong kapatid?
8 And Judah said unto Israel his father, Send the lad with me, and we will arise and go; that we may live, and not die, both we, and thou, and also our little ones.8 At sinabi ni Juda kay Israel na kaniyang ama. Pasamahin mo sa akin ang bata at kami ay magsisitindig at magsisiyaon; upang tayo'y mabuhay at huwag mamatay, kami, at ikaw, at gayon din ang aming mga bata.
9 I will be surety for him; of my hand shalt thou require him: if I bring him not unto thee, and set him before thee, then let me bear the blame for ever:9 Ako ang mananagot sa kaniya; sa aking kamay hahanapin mo siya; kung hindi ko ibalik sa iyo, at ilagay sa harap mo, ay pasanin ko ang sala magpakailan pa man:
10 For except we had lingered, surely now we had returned this second time.10 Sapagka't kung hindi tayo nagluwat, ay nakapagbalik na kaming makalawa.
11 And their father Israel said unto them, If it must be so now, do this; take of the best fruits in the land in your vessels, and carry down the man a present, a little balm, and a little honey, spices, and myrrh, nuts, and almonds:11 At sinabi sa kanila ng kanilang amang si Israel, Kung gayon, ngayo'y gawin ninyo ito: magdala kayo sa inyong bayong ng mga piling bunga ng lupain, at dalhan ninyo ang lalaking yaon ng kaloob, ng kaunting balsamo at kaunting pulot, pabango, at mirra, mga pile at almendras.
12 And take double money in your hand; and the money that was brought again in the mouth of your sacks, carry it again in your hand; peradventure it was an oversight:12 At magdala kayo ng ibayong halaga ng salapi sa inyong kamay; at ang salaping nabalik sa labi ng inyong mga bayong ay dalhin ninyong muli sa inyong kamay; marahil ay kalituhan:
13 Take also your brother, and arise, go again unto the man:13 Dalhin din ninyo ang inyong kapatid, at magtindig kayo at pumaroon kayong muli sa lalaking yaon.
14 And God Almighty give you mercy before the man, that he may send away your other brother, and Benjamin. If I be bereaved of my children, I am bereaved.14 At pagkalooban nawa kayo ng Dios na Makapangyarihan sa lahat ng kaawaan sa harap ng lalaking yaon, upang isauli sa inyo ang inyong isang kapatid at si Benjamin. At kung mawalan ako ng mga anak, ay mawalan ako.
15 And the men took that present, and they took double money in their hand, and Benjamin; and rose up, and went down to Egypt, and stood before Joseph.15 At dinala ng mga lalake ang kaloob na yaon, at ibayong halaga ng salapi ang dinala sa kanilang kamay, at si Benjamin; at nagsipagtindig, at nagsibaba sa Egipto, at nagsiharap kay Jose.
16 And when Joseph saw Benjamin with them, he said to the ruler of his house, Bring these men home, and slay, and make ready; for these men shall dine with me at noon.16 At nang makita ni Jose si Benjamin na kasama nila, ay sinabi niya sa katiwala ng kaniyang bahay: Dalhin mo ang mga lalaking iyan sa bahay, at magpatay ka ng mga hayop, at ihanda mo; sapagka't ang mga lalaking iyan ay magsisipananghaling kasalo ko.
17 And the man did as Joseph bade; and the man brought the men into Joseph's house.17 At ginawa ng lalake ang ayon sa iniutos sa kaniya ni Jose; at dinala ng katiwala ang mga lalaking yaon sa bahay ni Jose.
18 And the men were afraid, because they were brought into Joseph's house; and they said, Because of the money that was returned in our sacks at the first time are we brought in; that he may seek occasion against us, and fall upon us, and take us for bondmen, and our asses.18 At ang mga lalake ay nangatakot, sapagka't sila'y dinala sa bahay ni Jose; kanilang sinabi: Dahil sa salaping isinauli sa ating mga bayong ng una, ay dinala tayo rito; upang hanapan tayo ng dahilan, at tayo'y ibagsak niya, at tayo'y ariin niyang mga alipin, at pati ng atin mga asno.
19 And they came near to the steward of Joseph's house, and they communed with him at the door of the house,19 At sila'y nagsilapit sa katiwala ng bahay ni Jose, at kinausap nila sa pintuan ng bahay.
20 And said, O sir, we came indeed down at the first time to buy food:20 At sinabi nila, Oh panginoon ko, tunay na kami ay bumaba ng una na bumili ng pagkain:
21 And it came to pass, when we came to the inn, that we opened our sacks, and, behold, every man's money was in the mouth of his sack, our money in full weight: and we have brought it again in our hand.21 At nangyari, nang dumating kami sa tuluyan, na binuksan namin ang aming mga bayong, at, narito, ang salapi ng bawa't isa sa amin ay nasa labi ng kanikaniyang bayong, ang salapi namin sa tunay na timbang: at aming muling dinala sa aming kamay.
22 And other money have we brought down in our hands to buy food: we cannot tell who put our money in our sacks.22 At nagdala kami ng ibang salapi sa aming kamay upang ibili ng pagkain; hindi namin nalalaman kung sino ang naglagay ng aming salapi sa aming mga bayong.
23 And he said, Peace be to you, fear not: your God, and the God of your father, hath given you treasure in your sacks: I had your money. And he brought Simeon out unto them.23 At kaniyang sinabi, Mapayapa kayo; huwag kayong matakot, ang Dios ninyo at ang Dios ng inyong ama ang nagbigay sa inyo ng kayamanang natatago sa inyong mga bayong: tinanggap ko ang inyong salapi. At inilabas si Simeon sa kanila.
24 And the man brought the men into Joseph's house, and gave them water, and they washed their feet; and he gave their asses provender.24 At dinala ng katiwala ang mga lalake sa bahay ni Jose, at sila'y binigyan ng tubig, at nangaghugas ng kanilang mga paa; at binigyan ng pagkain ang kanilang mga asno.
25 And they made ready the present against Joseph came at noon: for they heard that they should eat bread there.25 At kanilang inihanda ang kaloob sa pagdating ni Jose sa tanghali; sapagka't kanilang narinig na doon sila magsisikain ng tinapay.
26 And when Joseph came home, they brought him the present which was in their hand into the house, and bowed themselves to him to the earth.26 At nang dumating si Jose sa bahay, ay dinala nila sa kaniya sa loob ng bahay, ang kaloob na nasa kanilang kamay, at sila'y nagpatirapa sa harap niya.
27 And he asked them of their welfare, and said, Is your father well, the old man of whom ye spake? Is he yet alive?27 At sila'y kaniyang tinanong tungkol sa kanilang kalagayan, at sinabi, Wala bang sakit ang inyong ama, ang matanda na inyong sinalita? buhay pa ba?
28 And they answered, Thy servant our father is in good health, he is yet alive. And they bowed down their heads, and made obeisance.28 At kanilang sinabi, Walang sakit ang iyong lingkod na aming ama, buhay pa. At sila'y nagsiyukod at nagsigalang.
29 And he lifted up his eyes, and saw his brother Benjamin, his mother's son, and said, Is this your younger brother, of whom ye spake unto me? And he said, God be gracious unto thee, my son.29 At itiningin niya ang kaniyang mga mata, at nakita si Benjamin na kapatid niya, na anak ng kaniyang ina, at sinabi, Ito ba ang inyong kapatid na bunso, na inyong sinalita sa akin? At kaniyang sinabi, Pagpalain ka nawa ng Dios, anak ko.
30 And Joseph made haste; for his bowels did yearn upon his brother: and he sought where to weep; and he entered into his chamber, and wept there.30 At nagmadali si Jose; sapagka't nagniningas ang kaniyang loob dahil sa kaniyang kapatid: at humanap ng dakong maiiyakan; at pumasok sa kaniyang silid, at umiyak doon.
31 And he washed his face, and went out, and refrained himself, and said, Set on bread.31 At siya'y naghilamos at lumabas; at nagpigil ng loob, at nagsabi, Maghain kayo ng tinapay.
32 And they set on for him by himself, and for them by themselves, and for the Egyptians, which did eat with him, by themselves: because the Egyptians might not eat bread with the Hebrews; for that is an abomination unto the Egyptians.32 At kanilang hinainan siyang bukod, at silang bukod, at ang mga Egipcio na kumakaing kasama niya ay bukod: sapagka't ang mga taga Egipcio ay hindi makakaing kasalo ng mga Hebreo; sapagka't kasuklamsuklam ito sa mga Egipcio.
33 And they sat before him, the firstborn according to his birthright, and the youngest according to his youth: and the men marvelled one at another.33 At sila'y nagsiupo sa harap niya, ang panganay ayon sa kaniyang pagkapanganay, at ang bunso ayon sa kaniyang pagkabunso: at ang mga lalake ay nangamamangha na nagtitinginan.
34 And he took and sent messes unto them from before him: but Benjamin's mess was five times so much as any of theirs. And they drank, and were merry with him.34 At sila'y idinampot ni Jose sa harap niya ng mga ulam: datapuwa't ang ulam ni Benjamin ay humihigit kay sa mga bahagi ng alin man sa kanila ng makalima. At nangaginuman at nangakipagkatuwa sa kaniya.
