Genesis 43:8
And Judah said unto Israel his father, "Send the lad with me, and we will arise and go, that we may live and not die, both we and thou, and also our little ones.
Genesis 44:16-34
And Judah said, "What shall we say unto my lord? What shall we speak? Or how shall we clear ourselves? God hath found out the iniquity of thy servants; behold, we are my lord's servants, both we and he also with whom the cup was found."
And he said, "God forbid that I should do so; but the man in whose hand the cup is found, he shall be my servant; and as for you, go up in peace unto your father."
Then Judah came near unto him and said, "Oh my lord, let thy servant, I pray thee, speak a word in my lord's ears, and let not thine anger burn against thy servant; for thou art even as Pharaoh.
My lord asked his servants, saying, `Have ye a father or a brother?'
And we said unto my lord, `We have a father, an old man, and a child of his old age, a little one; and his brother is dead, and he alone is left of his mother, and his father loveth him.'
And thou saidst unto thy servants, `Bring him down unto me, that I may set mine eyes upon him.'
And we said unto my lord, `The lad cannot leave his father; for if he should leave his father, his father would die.'
And thou saidst unto thy servants, `Unless your youngest brother come down with you, ye shall see my face no more.'
And it came to pass, when we came up unto thy servant, my father, we told him the words of my lord.
And our father said, `Go again, and buy us a little food.'
And we said, `We cannot go down. If our youngest brother be with us, then will we go down, for we may not see the man's face unless our youngest brother is with us.'
And thy servant, my father, said unto us, `Ye know that my wife bore me two sons;
and the one went out from me, and I said, "Surely he is torn in pieces"; and I saw him not since.
And if ye take this also from me, and harm befall him, ye shall bring down my gray hairs with sorrow to the grave.'
Now therefore when I come to thy servant my father and the lad be not with us, seeing that his life is bound up in the lad's life,
it shall come to pass, when he seeth that the lad is not with us, that he will die; and thy servants shall bring down the gray hairs of thy servant our father with sorrow to the grave.
For thy servant became surety for the lad unto my father, saying, `If I bring him not unto thee, then I shall bear the blame to my father for ever.'
Now therefore, I pray thee, let thy servant remain instead of the lad as a bondman to my lord, and let the lad go up with his brethren.
For how shall I go up to my father and the lad be not with me, lest perhaps I see the evil that shall come upon my father?"
Genesis 49:8
"Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise; thy hand shall be on the neck of thine enemies; thy father's children shall bow down before thee.
