And each said to his brother, “Indeed, for we are guilty concerning our brother, because we disregarded the affliction of his soul, when he pleaded with us, and we would not hear him; on account of this affliction has come upon us.

ויאמרו אישׁ אל־אחיו אבל אשׁמים אנחנו על־אחינו אשׁר ראינו צרת נפשׁו בהתחננו אלינו ולא שׁמענו על־כן באה אלינו הצרה הזאת׃

* Indeed OR Yes OR Yes, indeed
* disregarded OR neglected OR chose to take no notice of
* pleaded with OR besought
* on account | because
