The silver cup in the sack
(from Genesis chapter 44)




The brothers went home. 

Joseph put the money back in their sacks.

He put a silver cup in Benjamin’s sack.

He sent his men after them.

He told them to ask about the money and the cup.

The one who had the cup must stay in Egypt.

They found the cup in Benjamin’s sack.

They all went back to Joseph’s house.

Joseph said Benjamin must stay and be his slave.

Judah told Joseph how sad their father would be.

He had promised to look after Benjamin. 

He said he would stay instead of Benjamin.
