1 H3290 And Jacob H3427 [H8799] dwelt H776 in the land H1 of his father's H4033 sojournings, H776 in the land H3667 of Canaan.
2 H8435 These are the generations H3290 of Jacob. H3130 Joseph, H6240 H7651 being seventeen H8141 years H1121 old, H7462 [H8802] was feeding H6629 the flock H251 with his brethren; H5288 and the lad H1121 was with the sons H1090 of Bilhah, H1121 and with the sons H2153 of Zilpah, H1 his father's H802 wives: H3130 and Joseph H935 [H8686] brought H1 to his father H7451 their bad H1681 report.
3 H3478 Now Israel H157 [H8804] loved H3130 Joseph H1121 more than all his sons, H1121 because he was the son H2208 of his old age: H6213 [H8804] and he made H3801 him a coat H6446 of many colours.
4 H251 And when his brethren H7200 [H8799] saw H1 that their father H157 [H8804] loved H251 him more than all his brethren, H8130 [H8799] they hated H3201 [H8804] him, and could H1696 [H8763] not speak H7965 peaceably to him.
5 H3130 And Joseph H2492 [H8799] dreamed H2472 a dream, H5046 [H8686] and he told H251 it to his brethren: H8130 [H8800] and they hated H3254 [H8686] him yet the more.
6 H559 [H8799] And he said H8085 [H8798] to them, Hear, H2472 I pray you, this dream H2492 [H8804] which I have dreamed:
7 H481 H8432 [H8764] For, behold, we were binding H485 sheaves H7704 in the field, H485 and, lo, my sheaf H6965 [H8804] arose, H5324 [H8738] and also stood upright; H485 and, behold, your sheaves H5437 [H8799] stood around, H7812 [H8691] and bowed down H485 to my sheaf.
8 H251 And his brethren H559 [H8799] said H4427 [H8800] to him, Shalt thou indeed H4427 [H8799] reign H4910 [H8800] over us? or shalt thou indeed H4910 [H8799] have dominion H8130 [H8800] over us? And they hated H3254 [H8686] him yet the more H2472 for his dreams, H1697 and for his words.
9 H2492 [H8799] And he dreamed H312 yet another H2472 dream, H5608 [H8762] and told H251 it to his brethren, H559 [H8799] and said, H2492 [H8804] Behold, I have dreamed H2472 a dream H8121 more; and, behold, the sun H3394 and the moon H6240 H259 and the eleven H3556 stars H7812 [H8693] bowed down to me.
10 H5608 [H8762] And he told H1 it to his father, H251 and to his brethren: H1 and his father H1605 [H8799] chided H559 [H8799] him, and said H2472 to him, What is this dream H2492 [H8804] that thou hast dreamed? H517 Shall I and thy mother H251 and thy brethren H935 [H8800] indeed H935 [H8799] come H7812 [H8692] to bow down H776 ourselves to thee to the earth?
11 H251 And his brethren H7065 [H8762] envied H1 him; but his father H8104 [H8804] observed H1697 the saying.
12 H251 And his brethren H3212 [H8799] went H7462 [H8800] to feed H1 their father's H6629 flock H7927 in Shechem.
13 H3478 And Israel H559 [H8799] said H3130 to Joseph, H251 Do not thy brethren H7462 [H8802] feed H7927 the flock in Shechem? H3212 [H8798] come, H7971 [H8799] and I will send thee H559 [H8799] to them. And he said to him, Here am I.
14 H559 [H8799] And he said H3212 [H8798] to him, Go, H7200 [H8798] I pray thee, see H7965 whether it is well H251 with thy brethren, H7965 and well H6629 with the flocks; H7725 0 and bring H1697 me word H7725 [H8685] again. H7971 [H8799] So he sent H6010 him from the vale H2275 of Hebron, H935 [H8799] and he came H7927 to Shechem.
15 H376 And a certain man H4672 [H8799] found him, H8582 [H8802] and, behold, he was wandering H7704 in the field: H376 and the man H7592 [H8799] asked him, H559 [H8800] saying, H1245 [H8762] What seekest thou?
16 H559 [H8799] And he said, H1245 [H8764] I seek H251 my brethren: H5046 [H8685] tell H375 me, I pray thee, where H7462 [H8802] they feed their flocks.
17 H376 And the man H559 [H8799] said, H5265 [H8804] They have departed H2088 from here; H8085 [H8804] for I heard H559 [H8802] them say, H3212 [H8799] Let us go H1886 to Dothan. H3130 And Joseph H3212 [H8799] went H310 after H251 his brethren, H4672 [H8799] and found H1886 them in Dothan.
18 H7200 [H8799] And when they saw H7350 him afar off, H7126 [H8799] even before he came near H5230 [H8691] to them, they conspired H4191 [H8687] against him to slay him.
19 H559 [H8799] And they said H376 one H251 to another, H1976 Behold, this H1167 H2472 dreamer H935 [H8802] is coming.
20 H3212 [H8798] Come H2026 [H8799] now therefore, and let us slay H7993 [H8686] him, and cast H259 him into some H953 hole, H559 [H8804] and we will say, H7451 Some evil H2416 beast H398 [H8804] hath devoured H7200 [H8799] him: and we shall see H2472 what will become of his dreams.
21 H7205 And Reuben H8085 [H8799] heard H5337 [H8686] it, and he delivered H3027 him from their hands; H559 [H8799] and said, H5221 H5315 [H8686] Let us not kill him.
22 H7205 And Reuben H559 [H8799] said H8210 [H8799] to them, Shed H1818 no blood, H7993 [H8685] cast H953 him into this hole H4057 that is in the wilderness, H7971 [H8799] and lay H3027 no hand H5337 [H8687] upon him; that he might deliver H3027 him from their hands, H7725 [H8687] to bring him back H1 to his father.
23 H3130 And it came to pass, when Joseph H935 [H8804] had come H251 to his brethren, H6584 H853 [H8686] that they stripped H3130 Joseph H854 of H3801 his coat, H3801 his coat H6446 of many colours that was on him;
24 H3947 [H8799] And they took H7993 [H8686] him, and cast H953 him into a hole: H953 and the hole H7386 was empty, H4325 there was no water in it.
25 H3427 [H8799] And they sat down H398 [H8800] to eat H3899 bread: H5375 [H8799] and they lifted up H5869 their eyes H7200 [H8799] and looked, H736 and, behold, a company H3459 of Ishmaelites H935 [H8802] came H1568 from Gilead H1581 with their camels H5375 [H8802] bearing H5219 spicery H6875 and balm H3910 and myrrh, H1980 [H8802] going H3381 [H8687] to carry them down H4714 to Egypt.
26 H3063 And Judah H559 [H8799] said H251 to his brethren, H1215 What profit H2026 [H8799] is it if we slay H251 our brother, H3680 [H8765] and conceal H1818 his blood?
27 H3212 [H8798] Come, H4376 [H8799] and let us sell H3459 him to the Ishmaelites, H3027 and let not our hand H251 be upon him; for he is our brother H1320 our flesh. H251 And his brethren H8085 [H8799] were content.
28 H5674 [H8799] Then there passed H4084 by Midianites H582 H5503 [H8802] merchants; H4900 [H8799] and they drew H5927 [H8686] and lifted H3130 Joseph H953 out of the hole, H4376 [H8799] and sold H3130 Joseph H3459 to the Ishmaelites H6242 for twenty H3701 pieces of silver: H935 [H8686] and they brought H3130 Joseph H4714 into Egypt.
29 H7205 And Reuben H7725 [H8799] returned H953 to the hole; H3130 and, behold, Joseph H953 was not in the hole; H7167 [H8799] and he tore H899 his clothes.
30 H7725 [H8799] And he returned H251 to his brethren, H559 [H8799] and said, H3206 The child H575 is not; and I, where H935 [H8802] shall I go?
31 H3947 [H8799] And they took H3130 Joseph's H3801 coat, H7819 [H8799] and killed H8163 a kid H5795 of the goats, H2881 [H8799] and dipped H3801 the coat H1818 in the blood;
32 H7971 [H8762] And they sent H3801 the coat H6446 of many colours, H935 [H8686] and they brought H1 it to their father; H559 [H8799] and said, H4672 [H8804] This have we found: H5234 [H8685] know H1121 now whether it is thy son's H3801 coat or not.
33 H5234 [H8686] And he knew it, H559 [H8799] and said, H1121 It is my son's H3801 coat; H7451 an evil H2416 beast H398 [H8804] hath devoured H3130 him; Joseph H2963 [H8800] is without doubt H2963 [H8776] torn in pieces.
34 H3290 And Jacob H7167 [H8799] tore H8071 his clothes, H7760 [H8799] and put H8242 sackcloth H4975 on his loins, H56 [H8691] and mourned H1121 for his son H7227 many H3117 days.
35 H1121 And all his sons H1323 and all his daughters H6965 [H8799] rose up H5162 [H8763] to comfort H3985 [H8762] him; but he refused H5162 [H8692] to be comforted; H559 [H8799] and he said, H3381 [H8799] For I will go down H7585 into the grave H1121 to my son H57 mourning. H1 Thus his father H1058 [H8799] wept for him.
