Geneva(i) 18 And when they sawe him a farre off, euen before he came at them, they conspired against him for to slay him. 19 For they sayd one to another, Behold, this dreamer commeth. 20 Come now therefore, and let vs slay him, and cast him into some pitte, and wee will say, A wicked beast hath deuoured him: then wee shall see, what will come of his dreames. 21 But when Reuben heard that, he deliuered him out of their handes, and saide, Let vs not kill him. 22 Also Reuben saide vnto them, Shed not blood, but cast him into this pitte that is in the wildernesse, and lay no hande vpon him. Thus he said, that he might deliuer him out of their hand, and restore him to his father againe. 23 Now when Ioseph was come vnto his brethren, they stript Ioseph out of his coate, his particoloured coate that was vpon him. 24 And they tooke him, and cast him into a pit, and the pit was emptie, without water in it. 25 Then they sate them downe to eate bread: and they lift vp their eyes and looked, and behold, there came a companie of Ishmeelites from Gilead, and their camels laden with spicerie, and balme, and myrrhe, and were going to cary it downe into Egypt. 26 Then Iudah said vnto his brethren, What auaileth it, if we slay our brother, though wee keepe his blood secret? 27 Come and let vs sell him to the Ishmeelites, and let not our handes be vpon him: for he is our brother and our flesh: and his brethren obeyed. 28 Then the Midianites marchant men passed by, and they drewe foorth, and lift Ioseph out of the pit, and solde Ioseph vnto the Ishmeelites for twentie pieces of siluer: who brought Ioseph into Egypt.
