Genesis 43:7

Οἱ δὲ εἶπαν· Ἐρωτῶν ἐπηρώτησεν ἡμᾶς ὁ ἄνθρωπος καὶ τὴν γενεὰν ἡμῶν λέγων· Εἰ ἔτι ὁ πατὴρ ὑμῶν ζῇ; εἰ ἔστιν ὑμῖν ἀδελφός; καὶ ἀπηγγείλαμεν αὐτῷ κατὰ τὴν ἐπερώτησιν ταύτην. μὴ ᾔδειμεν ὅτι ἐρεῖ ἡμῖν· Ἀγάγετε τὸν ἀδελφὸν ὑμῶν;

Then they said, “The man closely questioned us and about our family, saying, ‘Is your father still alive? Have you a brother?’ And we told him according to this question. We did not know that he would say to us, ‘Bring your brother’?”

ויאמרו שׁאול שׁאל־האישׁ לנו ולמולדתנו לאמר העוד אביכם חי הישׁ לכם אח ונגד־לו על־פי הדברים האלה הידוע נדע כי יאמר הורידו את־אחיכם׃


*   ταύτην | αὐτοῦ
*   ὅτι | εἰ
*   We did not know OR (How could) we (possibly) know
