Joseph Sends Nine Of His Brothers Back To Canaan

5 Thus came in the sons of Israel, to buy corn in the midst of them that came - for the famine was in the land of Canaan. 6 Now, Joseph - he, it was, that was in power over the land, he, it was that was selling corn to all the people of the land, - so Joseph's brethren came in, and bowed themselves down to him, with their faces to the earth. 7 And Joseph beheld his brethren and recognised them, - and made himself a stranger unto them and spake with them harsh things and said unto them - Whence have ye come in? And they said, From the land of Canaan, to buy food.
