37:1 And Jacob [H3290] dwelt [H3427] in the land [H776] wherein his father [H1] was a stranger [H4033] , in the land [H776] of Canaan [H3667] .(wherein: Heb. of his father's sojournings)

37:2 These [are] the generations [H8435] of Jacob [H3290] . Joseph [H3130] , [being] seventeen [H6240] [H7651] years [H8141] old [H1121] , was feeding [H7462] the flock [H6629] with his brethren [H251] ; and the lad [H5288] [was] with the sons [H1121] of Bilhah [H1090] , and with the sons [H1121] of Zilpah [H2153] , his father's [H1] wives [H802] : and Joseph [H3130] brought [H935] unto his father [H1] their evil [H7451] report [H1681] .

37:3 Now Israel [H3478] loved [H157] Joseph [H3130] more than all his children [H1121] , because he [was] the son [H1121] of his old age [H2208] : and he made [H6213] him a coat [H3801] of [many] colours [H6446] .(colours: or, pieces)

37:4 And when his brethren [H251] saw [H7200] that their father [H1] loved [H157] him more than all his brethren [H251] , they hated [H8130] him, and could [H3201] not speak [H1696] peaceably [H7965] unto him.

37:5 And Joseph [H3130] dreamed [H2492] a dream [H2472] , and he told [H5046] [it] his brethren [H251] : and they hated [H8130] him yet the more [H3254] .

37:6 And he said [H559] unto them, Hear [H8085] , I pray you, this dream [H2472] which I have dreamed [H2492] :

37:7 For, behold, we [were] binding [H481] [H8432] sheaves [H485] in the field [H7704] , and, lo, my sheaf [H485] arose [H6965] , and also stood upright [H5324] ; and, behold, your sheaves [H485] stood round about [H5437] , and made obeisance [H7812] to my sheaf [H485] .

37:8 And his brethren [H251] said [H559] to him, Shalt thou indeed [H4427] reign [H4427] over us? or shalt thou indeed [H4910] have dominion [H4910] over us? And they hated [H8130] him yet the more [H3254] for his dreams [H2472] , and for his words [H1697] .

37:9 And he dreamed [H2492] yet another [H312] dream [H2472] , and told [H5608] it his brethren [H251] , and said [H559] , Behold, I have dreamed [H2492] a dream [H2472] more; and, behold, the sun [H8121] and the moon [H3394] and the eleven [H6240] [H259] stars [H3556] made obeisance [H7812] to me.

37:10 And he told [H5608] [it] to his father [H1] , and to his brethren [H251] : and his father [H1] rebuked [H1605] him, and said [H559] unto him, What [is] this dream [H2472] that thou hast dreamed [H2492] ? Shall I and thy mother [H517] and thy brethren [H251] indeed [H935] come [H935] to bow down [H7812] ourselves to thee to the earth [H776] ?

37:11 And his brethren [H251] envied [H7065] him; but his father [H1] observed [H8104] the saying [H1697] .

37:12 And his brethren [H251] went [H3212] to feed [H7462] their father's [H1] flock [H6629] in Shechem [H7927] .

37:13 And Israel [H3478] said [H559] unto Joseph [H3130] , Do not thy brethren [H251] feed [H7462] [the flock] in Shechem [H7927] ? come [H3212] , and I will send thee [H7971] unto them. And he said [H559] to him, Here [am I].

37:14 And he said [H559] to him, Go [H3212] , I pray thee, see [H7200] whether it be well [H7965] with thy brethren [H251] , and well [H7965] with the flocks [H6629] ; and bring [H7725] me word [H1697] again [H7725] . So he sent [H7971] him out of the vale [H6010] of Hebron [H2275] , and he came [H935] to Shechem [H7927] .(see: Heb. see the peace of thy brethren, etc.)

37:15 And a certain man [H376] found him [H4672] , and, behold, [he was] wandering [H8582] in the field [H7704] : and the man [H376] asked him [H7592] , saying [H559] , What seekest [H1245] thou?

37:16 And he said [H559] , I seek [H1245] my brethren [H251] : tell [H5046] me, I pray thee, where [H375] they feed [H7462] [their flocks].

37:17 And the man [H376] said [H559] , They are departed [H5265] hence [H2088] ; for I heard [H8085] them say [H559] , Let us go [H3212] to Dothan [H1886] . And Joseph [H3130] went [H3212] after [H310] his brethren [H251] , and found [H4672] them in Dothan [H1886] .

37:18 And when they saw [H7200] him afar off [H7350] , even before he came near [H7126] unto them, they conspired [H5230] against him to slay [H4191] him.

37:19 And they said [H559] one [H376] to another [H251] , Behold, this [H1976] dreamer [H1167] [H2472] cometh [H935] .(dreamer: Heb. master of dreams)

37:20 Come [H3212] now therefore, and let us slay [H2026] him, and cast [H7993] him into some [H259] pit [H953] , and we will say [H559] , Some evil [H7451] beast [H2416] hath devoured [H398] him: and we shall see [H7200] what will become of his dreams [H2472] .

37:21 And Reuben [H7205] heard [H8085] [it], and he delivered [H5337] him out of their hands [H3027] ; and said [H559] , Let us not kill [H5221] [H5315] him.

37:22 And Reuben [H7205] said [H559] unto them, Shed [H8210] no blood [H1818] , [but] cast [H7993] him into this pit [H953] that [is] in the wilderness [H4057] , and lay [H7971] no hand [H3027] upon him; that he might rid [H5337] him out of their hands [H3027] , to deliver [H7725] him to his father [H1] again [H7725] .

37:23 And it came to pass, when Joseph [H3130] was come [H935] unto his brethren [H251] , that they stript [H6584] [H853] Joseph [H3130] out of [H854] his coat [H3801] , [his] coat [H3801] of [many] colours [H6446] that [was] on him;(colours: or, pieces)

37:24 And they took [H3947] him, and cast [H7993] him into a pit [H953] : and the pit [H953] [was] empty [H7386] , [there was] no water [H4325] in it.

37:25 And they sat down [H3427] to eat [H398] bread [H3899] : and they lifted up [H5375] their eyes [H5869] and looked [H7200] , and, behold, a company [H736] of Ishmeelites [H3459] came [H935] from Gilead [H1568] with their camels [H1581] bearing [H5375] spicery [H5219] and balm [H6875] and myrrh [H3910] , going [H1980] to carry [it] down [H3381] to Egypt [H4714] .

37:26 And Judah [H3063] said [H559] unto his brethren [H251] , What profit [H1215] [is it] if we slay [H2026] our brother [H251] , and conceal [H3680] his blood [H1818] ?

37:27 Come [H3212] , and let us sell [H4376] him to the Ishmeelites [H3459] , and let not our hand [H3027] be upon him; for he [is] our brother [H251] [and] our flesh [H1320] . And his brethren [H251] were content [H8085] .(were: Heb. hearkened)

37:28 Then there passed [H5674] by Midianites [H4084] merchantmen [H582] [H5503] ; and they drew [H4900] and lifted up [H5927] Joseph [H3130] out of the pit [H953] , and sold [H4376] Joseph [H3130] to the Ishmeelites [H3459] for twenty [H6242] [pieces] of silver [H3701] : and they brought [H935] Joseph [H3130] into Egypt [H4714] .

37:29 And Reuben [H7205] returned [H7725] unto the pit [H953] ; and, behold, Joseph [H3130] [was] not in the pit [H953] ; and he rent [H7167] his clothes [H899] .

37:30 And he returned [H7725] unto his brethren [H251] , and said [H559] , The child [H3206] [is] not; and I, whither [H575] shall I go [H935] ?

37:31 And they took [H3947] Joseph's [H3130] coat [H3801] , and killed [H7819] a kid [H8163] of the goats [H5795] , and dipped [H2881] the coat [H3801] in the blood [H1818] ;

37:32 And they sent [H7971] the coat [H3801] of [many] colours [H6446] , and they brought [H935] [it] to their father [H1] ; and said [H559] , This have we found [H4672] : know [H5234] now whether it [be] thy son's [H1121] coat [H3801] or no.

37:33 And he knew it [H5234] , and said [H559] , [It is] my son's [H1121] coat [H3801] ; an evil [H7451] beast [H2416] hath devoured [H398] him; Joseph [H3130] is without doubt [H2963] rent in pieces [H2963] .

37:34 And Jacob [H3290] rent [H7167] his clothes [H8071] , and put [H7760] sackcloth [H8242] upon his loins [H4975] , and mourned [H56] for his son [H1121] many [H7227] days [H3117] .

37:35 And all his sons [H1121] and all his daughters [H1323] rose up [H6965] to comfort [H5162] him; but he refused [H3985] to be comforted [H5162] ; and he said [H559] , For I will go down [H3381] into the grave [H7585] unto my son [H1121] mourning [H57] . Thus his father [H1] wept [H1058] for him.

37:36 And the Midianites [H4092] sold [H4376] him into Egypt [H4714] unto Potiphar [H6318] , an officer [H5631] of Pharaoh's [H6547] , [and] captain [H8269] of the guard [H2876] .(officer: Heb. eunuch: but the word doth signify not only eunuchs, but also chamberlains, courtiers, and officers)(captain: or, chief marshal: Heb. chief of the slaughter men, or executioners)
