Genesis 42:2

Ἰδοὺ ἀκήκοα ὅτι ἔστιν σῖτος ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ· κατάβητε ἐκεῖ καὶ πρίασθε ἡμῖν μικρὰ βρώματα, ἵνα ζήσωμεν καὶ μὴ ἀποθάνωμεν.

Look, I have heard that there is grain in Egypt; go down there and buy for us a little food, so that we may live and not die.”

ויאמר הנה שׁמעתי כי ישׁ־שׁבר במצרים רדו־שׁמה ושׁברו־לנו משׁם ונחיה ולא נמות׃


*  ζήσωμεν | ζῶμεν
*  Look OR Behold
*  grain OR corn; corn in the British sense, encompassing wheat and barley, the cereal grains used by the ancient Greeks
