Judah: "A thief and his companions are taken together."
Joseph: "If you could prevail upon yourselves to report
to your father concerning a brother that had not stolen, and
had brought no manner of shame upon you, that a wild
beast had torn him, you will easily persuade yourselves to
say it concerning a brother that hath stolen, and hath
brought shame upon you. Go hence, and tell your father,
'The rope follows after the water bucket.' But," continued
Joseph, shaking his purple mantle, "God forbid that
I should accuse you all of theft. Only the youth that stole
the cup in order to divine his brother's whereabouts shall
remain with me as my bondman; but as for you, get you up
in peace unto your father."
