R. Dixit Ruben fratribus suis: Numquid non dixi vobis, Nolite peccare in puerum et non audistis me? * En sanguis ejus exquiritur.
V. Merito haec patimur, quia peccavimus in fratrem nostrum, videntes angustias animae ejus, dum deprecaretur nos, et non audivimus.
R. En sanguis ejus exquiritur.
R. And Reuben answered his brethren, saying Spake I not unto you, saying Do not sin against the child; and ye would not hear? * Behold, his blood is required.
V. We are verily guilty concerning our brother, in that we saw the anguish of his soul, when he besought us, and we would not hear.
R. Behold, his blood is required.
