Genesis 42:22

Ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ Ῥουβὴν εἶπεν αὐτοῖς· Οὐκ ἐλάλησα ὑμῖν λέγων· Μὴ ἀδικήσητε τὸ παιδάριον; καὶ οὐκ εἰσηκούσατέ μου· καὶ ἰδοὺ τὸ αἷμα αὐτοῦ ἐκζητεῖται.

Then answering Rhouben said to them, “Did I not speak to you, saying, ‘Do not hurt the boy’? And you did not listen to me; and look, his blood is being  sought out.”

ויען ראובן אתם לאמר הלוא אמרתי אליכם לאמר אל־תחטאו בילד ולא שׁמעתם וגם־דמו הנה נדרשׁ׃


*   is being sought out OR is demanding an account
