Genesis 43:8

Εἶπεν δὲ Ἰούδας πρὸς Ἰσραὴλ τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ· Ἀπόστειλον τὸ παιδάριον μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ, καὶ ἀναστάντες πορευσόμεθα, ἵνα ζῶμεν καὶ μὴ ἀποθάνωμεν καὶ ἡμεῖς καὶ σὺ καὶ ἡ ἀποσκευὴ ἡμῶν.

Then Iouda said to Israel his father, “Send the boy with me, and standing up, we will go, so that we may live and not die, both we and you and our children.”

ויאמר יהודה אל־ישׂראל אביו שׁלחה הנער אתי ונקומה ונלכה ונחיה ולא נמות גם־אנחנו גם־אתה גם־טפנו׃


* ἀποσκευὴ = collectively family members other than male adults such as wives and children (T. Muraoka)
* children OR dependants
