Genesis 37:1-36

1 Jacob continued to live in the land of Canaan, where his father had lived. 2 This is the story of Jacob and his descendants. Joseph was a seventeen-year-old young man. He took care of the flocks with the sons of Bilhah and Zilpah, his father’s wives. Joseph told his father about the bad things his brothers were doing. 3 Jacob (Israel) loved Joseph more than all his sons because Joseph had been born in Israel’s old age. So he made Joseph a special multicolored robe with long sleeves. 4 Joseph’s brothers saw that their father loved him more than any of them. They hated Joseph and could not speak to him in a friendly way. 5 One time Joseph had a dream. He told his brothers about it and they hated him even more. 6 He said: »Please listen to the dream I had. 7 »We were all in the field tying up sheaves of wheat. My sheaf got up and stood up straight. Yours formed a circle around mine and bowed down to it.« 8 »Do you think you are going to be a king and rule over us?« his brothers asked. So they hated him even more because of his dreams and because of what he said about them. 9 Joseph had another dream and told his brothers: »I had another dream, in which I saw the sun, the moon, and eleven stars bowing down to me.« 10 He also told the dream to his father. His father scolded him. »What kind of a dream is that? Do you think that your mother, your brothers, and I are going to come and bow down to you?« 11 Joseph’s brothers were jealous of him. His father kept thinking about the whole matter. 12 His brothers went to Shechem to take care of their father’s flock. 13 His father Jacob said to him: »I want you to go to your brothers. They are with the sheep near Shechem.« »Yes, I will go,« Joseph answered. 14 His father said: »Go and find out how your brothers and the sheep are doing. Then come back and let me know.« So he sent him from Hebron Valley. Joseph was near Shechem, 15 and wandering through the fields, when a man asked: »What are you looking for?« 16 Joseph answered: »I am looking for my brothers who are watching the sheep. Can you tell me where they are?« 17 »They are not here anymore,« the man replied. »I heard them say they were going to Dothan.« Joseph soon found his brothers in Dothan. 18 Before he arrived, they saw him coming and made plans to kill him. 19 They said to one another: »Look, here comes the hero of those dreams! 20 »Let us kill him and throw him into a water pit. We can say that some wild animal ate him. Then we will see what happens to those dreams.« 21 Reuben heard this and tried to protect Joseph from them. »Let us not kill him,« he said. 22 »Do not murder him or even harm him. Just throw him into a dry well out here in the desert.« Reuben planned to rescue Joseph later and take him back to his father. 23 When Joseph came to his brothers, they pulled off his fancy coat. 24 They put him into a water pit. It had no water in it. 25 As they sat down to eat, they saw a caravan of Ishmaelites coming from Gilead. Their camels were carrying the materials for cosmetics, medicine, and embalming. They were on their way to take them to Egypt. 26 Judah asked his brothers: »What will we gain by killing our brother and covering up his death? 27 »Let us sell him to the Ishmaelites. Let us not hurt him, because he is our brother, our own flesh and blood.« His brothers agreed. 28 Some of the Midianite traders approached. The brothers pulled Joseph out of the well and sold him for twenty pieces of silver to the Ishmaelites. They took him to Egypt. 29 Reuben came back to the pit and found that Joseph was not there. He tore his clothes in sorrow. 30 He returned to his brothers and said: »The boy is not there! What am I going to do?« 31 Then they killed a goat and dipped Joseph’s robe in its blood. 32 They took the robe to their father and said: »We found this. Does it belong to your son?« 33 He recognized it and said: »Yes, it is his! Some wild animal has killed him. My son Joseph has been torn to pieces!« 34 Jacob tore his clothes in sorrow and put on sackcloth. He mourned for his son a long time. 35 All his sons and daughters came to comfort him. However, he refused to be comforted. He said: »I will go down to the grave still mourning for my son.« So he continued to mourn for his son Joseph. 36 Meanwhile, in Egypt the Midianites sold Joseph to Potiphar, one of the king’s officers, who was the captain of the palace guard.

Genesis 39:1-23

1 Joseph had been taken to Egypt. Potiphar, one of Pharaoh’s Egyptian officials and captain of the guard, bought him from the Ishmaelites who had taken him there. 2 Jehovah was with Joseph. Joseph became a successful man. He worked in the house of his Egyptian master. 3 Joseph’s master saw that Jehovah was with him. Jehovah made him succeed in everything he did. 4 Potiphar was pleased with him and made him his personal servant. He put him in charge of his house and everything he owned. 5 Jehovah blessed the Egyptian’s household and everything he had in his house and in his fields because of Joseph. 6 Potiphar turned over everything he had to the care of Joseph. He did not concern himself with anything except the food he ate. Joseph was well built and good-looking. 7 Soon his master’s wife began to desire Joseph and asked him to go to bed with her. 8 He refused, and said to her: »My master does not have to concern himself with anything in the house, because I am here. He has put me in charge of everything he has. 9 »No one in this house is greater than I. He has kept nothing back from me except you. You are his wife. How could I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?« 10 She kept asking Joseph day after day. He refused to go to bed with her or be with her. 11 One day he went into the house to do his work. None of the household servants were there. 12 She grabbed him by his coat and said: »Come to bed with me!« But he ran outside and left his coat in her hand. 13 When she realized that he had gone but had left his coat behind, 14 she called her household servants and said to them: »Look! My husband brought this Hebrew here to fool around with us. He came in and tried to go to bed with me. I screamed as loud as I could. 15 »When he heard me scream, he ran out of the house, leaving his coat with me.« 16 Potiphar’s wife kept Joseph’s coat until her husband came home. 17 She said: »That Hebrew slave of yours tried to rape me! 18 »When I screamed for help, he left his coat and ran out of the house.« 19 Potiphar became very angry 20 and threw Joseph in the same prison where the king’s prisoners were kept. While Joseph was in prison, 21 Jehovah helped him and was good to him. He even made the jailer like Joseph so much that 22 he put him in charge of the other prisoners and of everything that was done in the jail. 23 The jailer did not worry about anything, because Jehovah was with Joseph and made him successful in all that he did.

I am giving you this land that will belong to you and your family from generation to generation.’« (Hebrew: olam olam) (long lasting possession) 5 Jacob went on to say: »Joseph, your two sons Ephraim and Manasseh were born in Egypt. But I accept them as my own, just as Reuben and Simeon are mine.

Genesis 48:5

5 Jacob went on to say: »Joseph, your two sons Ephraim and Manasseh were born in Egypt. But I accept them as my own, just as Reuben and Simeon are mine. 6 »Any children you have later will be considered yours. Their inheritance will come from Ephraim and Manasseh. 7 »Your mother Rachel died in Canaan after we left northern Syria and before we reached Bethlehem. I had to bury her along the way.« 8 Then Israel saw Joseph’s sons. He asked Joseph: »Who are these boys?« Joseph answered: 9 »They are my sons. God has given them to me here in Egypt.« »Bring them to me,« Jacob said. »I want to give them my blessing.« Joseph brought the boys to him. 10 Israel’s eyesight was failing because of old age. He could hardly see. So Joseph brought his sons close to his father. Israel hugged them and kissed them. 11 Israel said to Joseph: »I never expected to see you again. Now God has even let me see your sons.« 12 Joseph took them off his father’s lap and bowed with his face touching the ground. 13 Then Joseph took both of them, Ephraim on his right, facing Israel’s left, and Manasseh on his left, facing Israel’s right, and brought them close to him. 14 But Israel crossed his hands and reached out. He put his right hand on Ephraim’s head, although Ephraim was the younger son. He put his left hand on Manasseh’s head, although Manasseh was older. 15 Jacob blessed Joseph. He said: »May God, in whose presence my grandfather Abraham and my father Isaac walked, may this God who has been my shepherd all my life to this very day, 16 »May the being who rescued me from all evil bless these boys! May they be called by my name and by the names of my grandfather Abraham and my father Isaac. May they have many children on the earth.« 17 Joseph saw that his father had put his right hand on Ephraim’s head. Joseph did not like it. So he took his father’s hand in order to move it from Ephraim’s head to Manasseh’s. 18 He said to his father: »That is not right, Father! This is the firstborn. Put your right hand on his head.« 19 His father refused and said: »I know, Son, I know! Manasseh, too, will become a nation. He, too, will be important. Nevertheless, his younger brother will be more important than he. His descendants will become many nations.«

19 His father refused and said: »I know, Son, I know! Manasseh, too, will become a nation. He, too, will be important. Nevertheless, his younger brother will be more important than he.

Make them clean. 7 »This is what you must do to make them clean: Sprinkle them with water to take away their sins. Make them shave their whole bodies and wash their clothes. Then they will be clean. 8 »They must take a young bull and the grain offering of flour mixed with olive oil that is offered with it. You must take a second young bull as an offering for sin. 9 »Bring the Levites to the front of the tent of meeting. Assemble the whole congregation of Israel. 10 »Then bring the Levites into Jehovah’s presence, and the Israelites will place their hands on them. 11 »Aaron will present the Levites to Jehovah as an offering from the Israelites. Then they will be ready to do Jehovah’s work. 12 »The Levites will place their hands on the heads of the young bulls. Sacrifice one of them as an offering for sin and the other one as a burnt offering to Jehovah. These sacrifices will pay compensation for wrongdoing and make peace with Jehovah for the Levites. 13 »Make the Levites stand in front of Aaron and his sons, and present them as an offering to Jehovah. 14 »In this way you will separate the Levites from the other Israelites. The Levites will be mine. 15 »Once you have made them clean and presented them as an offering, the Levites may come and do their work at the tent of meeting. 16 »They will be the only Israelites given to me. I have taken them to be mine as substitutes for every firstborn male offspring of the Israelites. 17 »When I killed all the first-born in Egypt, I consecrated as my own the oldest son of each Israelite family and the first-born of every animal. 18 »I am now taking the Levites instead of all the first-born of the Israelites. 19 »I assign the Levites to Aaron and his sons, as a gift from the Israelites. They are to work in the tent for the people of Israel and to protect the Israelites from the disaster that would strike them if they came too near the Holy Place.«

Numbers 8:19

19 »I assign the Levites to Aaron and his sons, as a gift from the Israelites. They are to work in the tent for the people of Israel and to protect the Israelites from the disaster that would strike them if they came too near the Holy Place.« 20 Moses, Aaron, and all the people of Israel dedicated the Levites, as Jehovah commanded Moses. 21 So the Levites purified themselves and washed their clothes. Aaron dedicated them as a special gift to Jehovah. He also performed the ritual of purification for them. 22 The people did everything Jehovah commanded Moses concerning the Levites. Thus the Levites were qualified to work in the tent under Aaron and his sons. 23 Jehovah said to Moses: 24 »From the age of twenty-five each Levite shall perform his duties in the tent of my presence, 25 »They must retire from active service when they are fifty years old. 26 »They may assist the other Levites in their duties at the tent of meeting. But they may not do any regular work. This is how you will handle the Levites’ duties.«

So short blasts are to be sounded to break camp, 7 »Long blasts are to be sounded to call the congregation together. 8 »Aaron’s sons the priests are to blow the trumpets. The following rule is to be observed for all time to come. 9 »When there is war in your land and you defend yourselves against an enemy attack, sound the signal for battle on these trumpets. I, Jehovah your God, will help you and save you from your enemies. 10 »Joyful occasions such as your New Moon Festivals and your other religious festivals, you are to blow the trumpets when you present your burnt offerings and your fellowship offerings. Then I will help you. I AM JEHOVAH YOUR GOD!« 11 The cloud over the tent of Jehovah’s presence lifted the twentieth day of the second month in the second year after the people left Egypt.

May you (Jehovah) be help against his adversaries.« 8 »Let Your Thummim and Your Urim belong to your godly man, whom you tested at Massah and with whom you contended at the waters of Meribah. 9 »Who said of his father and mother: ‘I have not seen them; and he did not acknowledge his brothers, nor did he regard his own sons. They observed your word and kept your covenant.’ 10 »They will teach your ordinances to Jacob, and your Law to Israel.

These were the heads of the families of Ladan. 10 The sons of Shimei: Jahath, Ziza, Jeush and Beriah. These were the sons of Shimei, four in all. 11 Jahath was the first and Ziza the second, but Jeush and Beriah did not have many sons so they were counted as one family with one assignment. 12 The sons of Kohath: Amram, Izhar, Hebron and Uzziel, four in all. 13 The sons of Amram: Aaron and Moses. Aaron was set apart, he and his descendants from generation to generation, to consecrate the most holy things, to offer sacrifices before Jehovah, to minister before him and to pronounce blessings in his name as long as they live. 14 The sons of Moses the man of God were counted as part of the tribe of Levi. 15 The sons of Moses: Gershom and Eliezer. 16 The descendants of Gershom: Shubael was the first. 17 The descendants of Eliezer: Rehabiah was the first.

They were to do the same in the evening 31 and whenever burnt offerings were presented to Jehovah on Sabbaths and at New Moon festivals and at appointed feasts.
