1 H3290 And Jacob H3427 lived H776 in the land H1 where his father H4033 was a stranger, H776 in the land H3667 of Canaan.
2 H8435 These are the generations H3290 of Jacob. H3130 Joseph, H6240 being seventeen H8141 years H1121 old, H7462 was feeding H6629 the flock H251 with his brothers; 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 brought H1 unto his father H7451 their evil H1681 report.
3 H3478 Now Israel H157 loved H3130 Joseph H1121 more than all his sons, H1121 because he was the son H2208 of his old age: H6213 and he made H3801 him a coat H6446 of many colors.
4 H251 And when his brothers H7200 saw H1 that their father H157 loved H251 him more than all his brothers, H8130 they hated H3201 him, and could H1696 not speak H7965 peaceably unto him.
5 H3130 And Joseph H2492 dreamed H2472 a dream, H5046 and he told H251 it his brothers: H8130 and they hated H3254 him yet the more.
7 H481 For, behold, we were binding H485 sheaves H7704 in the field, H485 and, behold my sheaf H6965 arose, H5324 and also stood upright; H485 and, behold, your sheaves H5437 stood round about, H7812 and bowed H485 to my sheaf.
8 H251 And his brothers H559 said H4427 to him, shall you indeed H4427 reign H4910 over us? or shall you indeed H4910 have dominion H8130 over us? And they hated H3254 him yet the more H2472 for his dreams, H1697 and for his words.
9 H2492 And he dreamed H312 yet another H2472 dream, H5608 and told H251 it his brothers, H559 and said, H2492 Behold, I have dreamed H2472 a dream H8121 more; and, behold, the sun H3394 and the moon H6240 and the eleven H3556 stars H7812 bowed down to me.
10 H5608 And he told H1 it to his father, H251 and to his brothers: H1 and his father H1605 rebuked H559 him, and said H2472 unto him, What is this dream H2492 that you have dreamed? H517 Shall I and your mother H251 and your brothers H935 indeed H935 come H7812 to bow down H776 ourselves to you to the earth?
13 H3478 And Israel H559 said H3130 unto Joseph, H251 Do not your brothers H7462 feed H7927 the flock in Shechem? H3212 come, H7971 and I will send you H559 unto them. And he said to him, Here am I.
14 H559 And he said H3212 to him, Go, H7200 I pray you see H7965 whether it be well H251 with your brothers, H7965 and well H6629 with the flocks; H7725 and bring H1697 me word H7725 again. H7971 So he sent H6010 him out of the valley H2275 of Hebron, H935 and he came H7927 to Shechem.
15 H376 And a certain man H4672 found him, H8582 and, behold, he was wandering H7704 in the field: H376 and the man H7592 asked him, H559 saying, H1245 What seek you?
16 H559 And he said, H1245 I seek H251 my brothers: H5046 tell H375 me, I pray you where H7462 they feed their flocks.
17 H376 And the man H559 said, H5265 They are departed H2088 here; H8085 for I heard H559 them say, H3212 Let us go H1886 to Dothan. H3130 And Joseph H3212 went H310 after H251 his brothers, H4672 and found H1886 them in Dothan.
18 H7200 And when they saw H7350 him afar off, H7126 even before he came near H5230 unto them, they conspired H4191 against him to slay him.
20 H3212 Come H2026 now therefore, and let us slay H7993 him, and cast H259 him into some H953 pit, H559 and we will say, H7451 Some evil H2416 animal H398 has devoured H7200 him: and we shall see H2472 what will become of his dreams.
21 H7205 And Reuben H8085 heard H5337 it, and he delivered H3027 him out of their hands; H559 and said, H5221 Let us not kill him.
22 H7205 And Reuben H559 said H8210 unto them, Shed H1818 no blood, H7993 but cast H953 him into this pit H4057 that is in the wilderness, H7971 and lay H3027 no hand H5337 upon him; that he might rid H3027 him out of their hands, H7725 to deliver H1 him to his father H7725 again.
23 H3130 And it came to pass, when Joseph H935 was come H251 unto his brothers, H6584 that they stripped H3130 Joseph H854 out of H3801 his coat, H3801 his coat H6446 of many colors that was on him;
24 H3947 And they took H7993 him, and cast H953 him into a pit: H953 and the pit H7386 was empty, H4325 there was no water in it.
25 H3427 And they sat down H398 to eat H3899 bread: H5375 and they lifted up H5869 their eyes H7200 and looked, H736 and, behold, a company H3459 of Ishmeelites H935 came H1568 from Gilead H1581 with their camels H5375 bearing H5219 spice H6875 and balm H3910 and myrrh, H1980 going H3381 to carry it down H4714 to Egypt.
26 H3063 And Judah H559 said H251 unto his brothers, H1215 What profit H2026 is it if we kill H251 our brother, H3680 and conceal H1818 his blood?
27 H3212 Come, H4376 and let us sell H3459 him to the Ishmeelites, H3027 and let not our hand H251 be upon him; for he is our brother H1320 and our flesh. H251 And his brothers H8085 were content.
28 H5674 Then there passed H4084 by Midianites H582 merchants; H4900 and they drew H5927 and lifted up H3130 Joseph H953 out of the pit, H4376 and sold H3130 Joseph H3459 to the Ishmeelites H6242 for twenty H3701 pieces of silver: H935 and they brought H3130 Joseph H4714 into Egypt.
29 H7205 And Reuben H7725 returned H953 unto the pit; H3130 and, behold, Joseph H953 was not in the pit; H7167 and he tore H899 his clothes.
30 H7725 And he returned H251 unto his brothers, H559 and said, H3206 The child H575 is not; and I, where H935 shall I go?
31 H3947 And they took H3130 Joseph's H3801 coat, H7819 and killed H8163 a kid H5795 of the goats, H2881 and dipped H3801 the coat H1818 in the blood;
32 H7971 And they sent H3801 the coat H6446 of many colors, H935 and they brought H1 it to their father; H559 and said, H4672 This have we found: H5234 know H1121 now whether it be your son's H3801 coat or no.
33 H5234 And he knew it, H559 and said, H1121 It is my son's H3801 coat; H7451 an evil H2416 animal H398 has devoured H3130 him; Joseph H2963 is outside doubt H2963 tore in pieces.
34 H3290 And Jacob H7167 tore H8071 his clothes, H7760 and put H8242 sackcloth H4975 upon his waist, H56 and mourned H1121 for his son H7227 many H3117 days.
35 H1121 And all his sons H1323 and all his daughters H6965 rose up H5162 to comfort H3985 him; but he refused H5162 to be comforted; H559 and he said, H3381 For I will go down H7585 into the grave H1121 unto my son H57 mourning. H1 Thus his father H1058 wept for him.
