Now we have brought it back again. And we have brought down with us other money to buy food; we do not know who put our money in our sacks.

Note that the money which we found in the mouths of our sacks we brought back to you from the land of Canaan. Is it likely then that we would steal from your master's house silver or gold?

Behold, we are my lord's slaves, the rest of us as well as he with whom the cup is found.
