{Genesis 42:27} And as one 259 of them opened 6605 z8799 x853 his sack 8242 to give 5414 z8800 his ass 2543 provender 4554 in the inn, 4411 he espied 7200 z8799 x853 his money; 3701 for, behold, x2009 it x1931 [was] in his sack's 572 mouth. 6310
the inn:
"And it came to pass,¹ when¹ we cameª° to¹ the inn,ª that we openedª°¹ our sacks,ª and, behold,¹ [every] man'sª moneyª [was] in the mouthª of his sack,ª our moneyª in full weight:ª and we have brought it againª°¹ in our hand.ª" {Gen 43:21} + "Then they speedilyª° took downª° every manª¹ his sackª to the ground,ª and openedª° every manª his sack.ª" {Gen 44:11} + "And it came to pass¹ by the wayª in the inn,ª that the LORDª metª° him, and soughtª° to killª° him." {Exd 4:24} + "Andª she brought forthª° her²¹ firstbornª son,ª andª wrapped²° him² in swaddling clothes,ª°¹ andª laidª° himª inª a manger;ª becauseª there wasª° noª roomª for themª inª the¹ inn.ª¹" {Lke 2:7} + "Andª wentª° to [him], and bound upª° hisª wounds,ª pouring inª° oilª andª wine,ª andª setª° himª onª his ownª beast,ª and broughtª° himª toª an inn,ª andª took careª° of him.ª" {Lke 10:34}
Malon, from loon, to stay, abide, lodge, denotes any place to stay and lodge in, particularly a place where travellers usually stop to lodge, which is generally near a well, where they fill their girbehs, or leathern bottles, with fresh water, and having unladen and clogged their camels, asses, etc., permit them to crop any little verdure there may be in the place, keeping watch over them by turns. Our word inn here gives us a false idea, there were no such places of entertainment in the desert which Joseph's brethren had to pass; nor are there any at the present day. The only accommodation such a place affords is either a well, or a khan, or caravanserai, which is generally no more than four bare walls, perfectly exposed, the place being open at the top, and furnishing a wretched lodging, and even these, it is probable, were not in use at this early period.
