Genesis 43:1-34
1. And the dearth waxed sore in the land.
2. And when they had eaten up that corn which they brought out of the land of Egypt, their father said unto them: go again and buy us a little food.
3. Then said Juda unto him: the man did testify unto us saying: look that ye see not my face except your brother be with you.
4. Therefore if thou wilt send our brother with us, we will go and buy the food.
5. But if thou wilt not send him, we will not go: for the man said unto us: look that ye see not my face, except your brother be with you.
6. And Israel said: wherefore dealt ye so cruelly with me, as to tell the man that ye had yet another brother?
7. And they said: The man asked us of our kindred saying: is your father yet alive? have ye not another brother? And we told him according to these words. How could we know that he would bid us bring our brother down with us?
8. Then said Juda unto Israel his father: Send the lad with me, and we will rise and go, that we may live and not die: both we, thou and also our children.
9. I will be surety for him, and of my hands require him. If I bring him not to thee and set him before thine eyes, then let me bear the blame for ever.
10. For except we had made this tarrying: by this we had been there twice and come again.
11. Then their father Israel said unto them: if it must needs be so now: then do thus, take of the best fruits of the land in your vessels, and bring the man a present, a courtesy balm, and a courtesy of honey, spices and myrrh, dates and almonds.
12. And take as much money more with you. And the money that was brought again in your sacks, take it again with you in your hands, peradventure it was some oversight.
13. Take also your brother with you, and arise and go again to the man.
14. And God almighty give you mercy in the sight of the man and send you your other brother and also Ben Jamin, and I will be as a man robbed of his children.
15. Thus took they the present and twice so much more money with them, and Ben Jamin. And rose up, went down to Egypt, and presented themself to Joseph.
16. When Joseph saw Ben Jamin with them, he said to the ruler of his house: bring these men home, and slay and make ready: for they shall dine with me at noon.
17. And the man did as Joseph bade, and brought them in to Joseph's house.
18. When they were brought to Joseph's house, they were afraid, and said: because of the money that came in our sacks' mouths at the first time, are we brought, to pick a quarrel with us and to lay some thing to our charge: to bring us in bondage and our asses also.
19. Therefore came they to the man that was the ruler over Joseph's house, and communed with him at the door
20. and said: Sir, we came hither at the first time to buy food,
21. and as we came to an inn and opened our sacks: behold, every man's money was in his sack with full weight: But we have brought it again with us,
22. and other money have we brought also in our hands, to buy food, but we can not tell who put our money in our sacks.
23. And he said: be of good cheer, fear not: Your God and the God of your fathers hath put you that treasure in your sacks, for I had your money. And he brought Simeon out to them
24. and led them into Joseph's house, and gave them water to wash their feet, and gave their asses provender:
25. And they made ready their present against Joseph came at noon, for they heard say that they should dine there.
26. When Joseph came home, they brought the present into the house to him, which they had in their hands, and fell flat on the ground before him.
27. And he welcomed them courteously saying: is your father that old man which ye told me of, in good health? and is he yet alive?
28. they answered: thy servant our father is in good health, and is yet alive. And they bowed them selves and fell to the ground.
29. And he lift up his eyes and beheld his brother Ben Jamin his mother's son, and said: is this your youngest brother of whom ye said unto me? And said: God be merciful unto thee my son.
30. And Joseph made haste (for his heart did melt upon his brother) and sought for to weep, and entered into his chamber, for to weep there.
31. And he washed his face and came out and refrained himself, and bade set bread on the table.
32. And they prepared for him by himself, and for them by them selves, and for the Egyptians which ate with him by them selves, because the Egyptians may not eat bread with the Hebrews, for that is an abomination unto the Egyptians.
33. And they sat before him: the eldest according unto his age, and the youngest according unto his youth. And the men marvelled among them selves.
34. And they brought rewards unto them from before him: but Ben Jamin's part was five times so much as any of theirs. And they ate and they drank, and were drunk with him.

Genesis 44:1-34
1. And he commanded the ruler of his house saying: fill the men's sacks with food, as much as they can carry,
2. and put every man's money in his bag mouth, and put my silver cup in the sack's mouth of the youngest and his corn money also. And he did as Joseph had said.
3. And in the morning as soon as it was light, the men were let go with their asses.
4. And when they were out of the city and not yet far away, Joseph said unto the ruler of his house: up and follow after the men and overtake them, and say unto them: wherefore have ye rewarded evil for good?
5. is that not the cup of which my lord drinketh, and doth he not prophesy therein? ye have evil done that ye have done.
6. And he overtook them and said the same words unto them.
7. And they answered him: wherefore saith my lord such words? God forbid that thy servants should do so.
8. Behold, the money which we found in our sack's mouths, we brought again unto thee, out of the land of Canaa: how then should we steal out of my lord's house, either silver or gold?
9. with whosoever of thy servants it be found let him die, and let us also be my lord's bondmen.
10. And he said: Now therefore according unto your words, he with whom it is found, shall be my servant: but ye, shall be harmless.
11. And at once every man took down his sack to the ground, and every man opened his sack.
12. And he searched, and began at the eldest and left at the youngest. And the cup was found in Ben Jamin's sack.
13. Then they rent their clothes, and laded every man his ass and went again unto the city.
14. And Juda and his brethren came to Joseph's house, for he was yet there, and they fell before him on the ground.
15. And Joseph said unto them: what deed is this which ye have done? wist ye not that such a man as I can prophesy?
16. Then said Juda: what shall we say unto my lord, what shall we speak or what excuse can we make? God hath found out the wickedness of thy servants. Behold, both we and he with whom the cup is found, are thy servants.
17. And he answered: God forbid that I should do so, the man with whom the cup is found, he shall be my servant: but go ye in peace unto your father.
18. Then Juda went unto him and said: oh my lord, let thy servant speak a word in my lord's audience,(ear) and be not wroth with thy servant: for thou art even as Pharao.
19. My lord asked his servant saying: have ye a father or a brother?
20. And we answered my lord, we have a father that is old, and a young lad which he begat in his age: and the brother of the said lad is dead, and he is all that is left of that mother. And his father loveth him.
21. Then said my lord unto his servants bring him unto me, that I may set mine eyes upon him.
22. And we answered my lord, that the lad could not go from his father, for if he should leave his father, he were but a dead man.
23. Then saidest thou unto thy servants: except your youngest brother come with you, look that ye see my face no more.
24. And when we came unto thy servant our father, we shewed him what my lord had said.
25. And when our father said unto us, go again and buy us a little food:
26. we said, that we could not go. Nevertheless if our youngest brother go with us then will we go, for we may not see the man's face, except our youngest brother be with us.
27. Then said thy servant our father unto us. Ye know that my wife bare me two sons.
28. And the one went out from me and it is said of a surety that he is torn in pieces of wild beasts, and I saw him not since.
29. If ye shall take this also away from me and some misfortune happen upon him, then shall ye bring my gray head with sorrow unto the grave.
30. Now therefore when I come to thy servant my father, if the lad be not with me: seeing that his life hangeth by the lad's life,
31. then as soon as he seeth that the lad is not come, he will die. So shall we thy servants bring the gray head of thy servant our father with sorrow unto the grave.
32. For I thy servant became surety for the lad unto my father and said: if I bring him not unto thee again. I will bear the blame all my life long.
33. Now therefore let me thy servant bide here for the lad, and be my lord's bondman: and let the lad go home with his brethren.
34. For how can I go unto my father, and the lad not with me: lest I should see the wretchedness that shall come on my father.

Psalms 11:1-7
1. To the Chanter, of David. In the LORD put I my trust: how will ye then say to my soul: that she should flee as a bird upon your hill?
2. For lo, the ungodly have bend their bow, and made ready their arrows in the quiver, that they may privily shoot at them, which are true of heart.
3. The very foundations have they cast down, what can the righteous then do with all?
4. But the LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD's seat is in heaven: he considereth with his eyes, his eyelids behold the children of men.
5. The LORD seeth both the righteous and ungodly, but who so delighteth in wickedness, him his soul abhoreth.
6. Upon the ungodly he shall rain snares, fire, brimstone, storm and tempest: this reward shall they have to drink.
7. For the LORD is righteous, and he loveth righteousness: his countenance beholdeth the thing that is just.

Proverbs 4:10-13
10. Hear, my son, and receive my words, that the years of thy life may be many.
11. I will shew thee, the way of wisdom, and lead thee in the right paths.
12. So that if thou goest therein, there shall no straitness hinder thee: and when thou runnest, thou shalt not fall.
13. Take fast hold of doctrine, let her not go: keep her, for she is thy life.

Matthew 14:22-36
22. And straight way Jesus made his disciples enter in to a ship, and to go over before him, while he sent the people away.
23. And as soon as he had sent the people away, he went up into a mountain alone to pray. And when night was come he was there himself alone.
24. And the ship was (now) in the midst of the sea, and was tossed with waves, for it was a contrary wind.
25. In the fourth watch of the night Jesus came unto them, walking on the sea:
26. and when his disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were amazed,(troubled) saying: it is some spirit, and cried out for fear.
27. And straightway Jesus spake unto them saying: be of good cheer, it is I, be not afraid.
28. Peter answered, (him) and said: Master, and(if) thou be he, bid me come unto thee on the water.
29. And he said come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
30. But when he saw a mighty wind, he was afraid. And as he began to sink, he cried saying: Master save me.
31. And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said to him: O thou of little faith: wherefore didst thou doubt?
32. And as soon as they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.
33. Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him,(fell down before him) saying: Of a truth thou art the son of God.
34. And when they were come over, they went in to the land of Genazareth.
35. And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all that were sick,
36. and besought him, that they might touch the border(hem) of his vesture only. And as many as touched it,(hytt) were made safe.(whole)
