2 Joseph ishated ofhisbrethren. 5 His two dreams.

13 Jacob sendeth him to visit his brethren. 18

Bis brethren conspire his death. 21 Reuben sav-

ethhim. 26 They sell him to the Jshmattites. 31

His father, deceived by thebloody coat, mourneth

for him. 36 Be is sold to Potiphar in Egypt.

AND Jacob dwelt in the land t "wherein

his father was the stranger, in the land of

Canaan.

2 These are the generations of Jacob. Jo-

seph, being seventeen years old, was feed-
ing the flock with his brethren; and the
lad was with the sons of Bilhah, and
the sons ot Zilpah, his father's wives: and
Joseph brought unto his father 4 their evil

3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than all

his children, because he was cthe son of his

old age: and he made him a coat of many

II colours.

4 And when his brethren saw that their fa-

ther loved him more than all his brethren,

they d hated him, and could not speak peace-

ably unto him.

5 1 And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he

told it his brethren: and they hated hi:

yet the more.

6 And he said unto them, Hear, I pray

you, this dream which I have dreamed:

7 For, ebehold, we were binding sheaves in

the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also

stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves

stood round about, and made obeisance to

my sheaf.

8 And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou

indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed

have dominion over us? And they hated

him yet the more for his dreams, and for his

words.

9 ^ And ho dreamed yet another dream, and

told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have

dreamed a, dream more; and, behold, /the

sun and the moon and the eleven stars made

obeisance to me.

10 And he told it to his father, and to his

brethren: and his father rebuked him, and

said unto him, What is this dream that thou

hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and

"thy brethren indeed come to bow down our-

selves to thee to the earth?

11 And hhis brethren envied him; but his

father »' observed the saying.

12 ^ And his brethren went to feed their

father's flock in Shechem.

13 And Israel said unto Joseph, Do not

thy brethren feed the flock in Shechem?

come, and I will send thee unto them. And

he said to him, Here am I.

14 And he said to him, Go, I pray thee,

tsee whether it be well with thy breth-
ren, and well with the flocks; and bring
me word again. So he sent him out of
the vale of * Hebron, and he came to She-

15 f And a certain man found him, and,

behold, he teas wandering in the field: and

the man asked him, saying, What seekest

16 And he said, I seek my brethren: /tell

me, I pray thee, where they feed their

flocks.

17 And the man said, They are departed

hence; for I heard them say, Let us go to

Dothan. And Joseph went after his breth-

ren, and found them in "'Dothan.

18 And when they saw him afar off, even

before he came near unto them, "they con-

spired against him to slay him.

19 And they said one to another, Behold,

this t dreamer cometh.

20 "Come now therefore, and let us slay

him, and cast him into some pit, and we

will say, Some evil beast hath devoured

him; and wo shall see what will become of

his dreams.

21 And I' Reuben heard it, and he delivered

him out of their hands; and said, Let us not

kill him.

22 And Reuben said unto them, Shed no

blood, but cast him into this pit that is in

the wilderness, and lay no hand upon him;

that he might rid him out of their hands, to

deliver him to his father again.

23 U And it came to pass, when Joseph

was come unto his brethren, that they strip-

ped Joseph out of his coat, his coat oimany

II colours that was on him;

24 And they took him, and cast him into a

pit: and the pit was empty, there was no

water in it.

25 1 And they sat down to eat bread: and

they lifted up their eyes and looked, and,
behold, a company of ''Ishmaelites came
from Gilead, with their camels bearing spi-
cery and "balm and myrrh, going to carry it
down to Egypt.

20 And Judah said unto his brethren,

What profit is it if we slay our brother, and

tconceal his blood?

27 Come, and let us sell him to the Ishma-

elites, and ""let not our hand be upon him;

for he is Kour brother and Your flesh: and

his brethren t were content.

28 Then there passed by 2 Midianites mer-

chantmen; and they drew and lifted up Jo-
seph out of the pit, "and sold Joseph to the
Ishmaelites for b twenty pieces of silver:

1 they brought Joseph into Egypt.
If And Reuben returned unto the pit;
, behold, Joseph was not in the pit; and

he °rent his clothes.

30 And he returned unto his brethren, and

said, The child dies not; and I, whither shall

I go?

31 And they took e Joseph's coat, and killed

a kid of the goats, and dipped the coat in
the blood;

2 And they sent the coat oimany colours,
id they brought it to their father; and

said, This have we found : know now whether

it be thy son's coat or no.
"" And he knew it, and said, It is my son's

coat; an /evil beast hath devoured him;

Joseph is without doubt rent in pieces.

34 And Jacob "rent his clothes, and put

sackcloth upon his loins, and mourned for

his son many days.

35 And all his sons and all his daughters

h rose up to comfort him; but lfe refused to

be comforted; and he said, For il will go

down into the grave unto my son mourning.

Thus his father wept for him.

30 And * the Midianites sold him into Egypt

unto Potiphar, an + officer of Pharaoh's, and

til captain of the guard.

AND it came to pass at that time, that Judah went down from his brethren, and "turned in to a certain Adullarnite, whose name tvas Hirah.

2 And Judah b saw there a daughter of a certain Canaanite, whose name was C Shuah; and he took her, and went in unto her.

3 And she conceived, and bare a son; and ho called his name <'Er.

4 And she conceived again, and bare a son; and she called his name eOnan.

5 And she yet again conceived, and bare a son; and called his name f Shelah: and he was at Ghezib, when she bare him.

6 And Judah nook a wife for Er his firstborn, whose name was Tamar.

7 And Er, Judah's firstborn, was wicked in the sight of the Lord; » and the Lord slew him.

8 And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother's wife, and marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother.

9 And Onan knew that the seed should not be ^his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother's wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother.

10 And the thing which he did + displeased the Lord: wherefore he slew "him also.

11 Then said Judah to Tamar his daughter in law, "Remain a widow at thy father's house, till Shelah my son be grown: for he said, Lest peradventure he die also, as his brethren did. And Tamar went and dwelt °in her father's house.

12I And tin process of time the daughter of Shuah Judah's wife died; and Judah ?Jwas comforted, and went up unto his sheepshearers to Timnath, ho and his friend Hirah the Adullarnite.

13 And it was told Tamar, saying, Behold, thy father in law gooth up no Timnath to shear his sheep.

14 And she put her widow's garments off from her, and covered her with a, vail, and wrapped herself, and '" sat in t an open place, which is by the way to Timnath; for she saw sthat Shelah was grown, and she was not given unto him to wife.

15 When Judah saw her, he thought her to be a harlot; because she had covered her face.

16 And he turned unto her by the way, and said, Go to, I pray thee, let me come in unto theo; (for he knew not that she was his daughter in law:) and she said, What wilt thou give me, that thou mayest come in unto me?

17 And he said, 1I will send thee ta kid from the flock. And she said, "Wilt thou give ,me a pledge, till thou send it?

18 And he said, What pledge shall I give thee? And she^said, wThy signet, and thy bracelets, and thy staff that is in thine hand. And he gave it her, and came in unto her, and she conceived by him.

19 And she arose, and went away, and •'laid by her vail from her, and put on the garments of her widowhood.

20 And Judah sent the kid by the hand of his friend the Adullarnite, to receive 7ns pledge from the woman's hand: but he found her not.

21 Then he asked the men of that place,

saying, Where is the harlot, that was "openly by the way side? And they said, There was no harlot in this place.

22 And he returned ;o Judah, and said, I cannot find her; and also the men of the place said, that there was no harlot in this place.

23 And Judah said, Let her take it to her, lest we tbe shamed: behold, I sent this kid, and thou hast not found her.

24 If And it came to pass about three months after, that it was told Judah, saying, Tamar thy daughter in law hath zplayed the harlot; and also, behold, she is with child by whoredom. And Judah said, Bring her forth, "and let her be burnt.

25 When she tvas brought forth, she sent to her father in law, saying, By the man, whose these are, am I with child: and she said, 6 Discern, I pray thee, whose are these, °the signet, and bracelets, and staff.

2G And Judah ^acknowledged them, and said, eShe hath been more righteous than I; because that Ed gave her not to Shelah my son. And he knew her again "no more.

27 *$ And it came to pass in the time of her travail, that, behold, twins were in her womb.

28 And it came to pass, when she travailed, that the one put out his hand: and the midwife took and bound upon his hand the scarlet thread, saying, This came out first.

29 And it came to pass, as he drew back his hand, that, behold, his brother came out: and she said, HHow hast thou broken forth 1 this breach be upon thee: therefore his name was called II hPharez.

30 And afterward came out his brother, that had the scarlet thread upon his hand: and his name was called Zarah.

AND Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and "Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, b bought him of the hands of the Ishmaelites, which had brought him down thither.

2 And cthe Lord was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and ho was in the house of his master the Egyptian.,

3 And his master saw that the Lord was with him, and that the Lord made all that he did to prosper in his hand.

4 And Joseph e found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him /overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.

5 And it came to pass from the time that he had made him overseer in his house, and over, all that he had, that the Lord blessed the Egyptian's house for Joseph's sake; and the blessing of the Lord was upon all that ho had in the house, and in the field.

6 And he left all that he had in Joseph's hand; and he knew not aught he had, save the bread which he did eat. And Joseph A was a goodly person, and well favoured.

7 ^ And it came to pass after these things, that his master's wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, iLie with me.

8 But he refused, and said unto his master's wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand ;

10 And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her.

11 And it came to pass about this time, that Joseph went into the house to do his business; and there was none of the men of the house there within.

12 And '" she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.

13 And it came to pass, when she saw that he had left his garment in her hand, and was fled forth,

14 That she called unto the men of her house, and spake unto them, saying, See, he hath brought in a Hebrew unto us to mock us; he came in unto me to lie with me, and I cried with a tloud voice:

15 And it came to pass, when he heard that I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled, and got him out.

16 And she laid up his garment by her, until his lord came home.

17 And she "spake unto him according to these words, saying, The Hebrew servant, which thou hast brought unto us, came in unto me to mock me:

18 And it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled out.

19 And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his wife, which she spake unto him, saying, After this manner did thy servant to me; that his ° wrath was kindled.

20 And Joseph's master took him, and ?'put him into the ^prison, a place where the king's prisoners were bound: and he was there in the prison.

21 ^ But the Lord was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and rgave him favour

n the sight of the keeper of the prison.

22 And the keeper of the prison 'committed to Joseph's hand all the prisoners that were in the prison; and whatsoever they did there, he was the doer of it.

23 The keeper of the prison looked not to any thing that was under his hand; because <the Lord was with him, and that which he did, the Lord made it to prosper.

CHAPTER XL.

1 The butler and baker of Pharaoh in prison, i Joseph hath charge of them. 5 He interpreteth their dreams. 20 Then come to pas* according to his interpretation. 23 The ingratitude of the butler.

AND it came to pass after these things, that the ° butler of the king of Egypt and his baker had offended their lord the king of Egypt.

2 And Pharaoh was & wroth against two of lis officers, against the chief of the butlers, md against the chief of the bakers.

3 "And he put them.in ward in the house of the captain of the guard, into the prison, the place where Joseph tvas bound.

4 And the captain of the guard charged Joseph with them, and he served them: and they continued a season in ward.

5 U And they dreamed a dream both of bem, each man his dream in one night, each nan according to the interpretation of his

dream, the butler and the baker of the king of Egypt, which were bound in the prison.

0 And Joseph came in unto them in the morning, and looked upon them, and, behold, they were sad.

7 And he asked Pharaoh's officers that were with him in the ward of his lord's house, saying, Wherefore tlook ye so sadly to day?

8 And they said unto him, tZWe have dreamed a dream, and there is no interpreter of it. And Joseph said unto them, eDo not interpretations belong to God? tell me them, I pray you.

9 And the chief butler told his dream to Joseph, and said to him, In my dream, behold, a vine tvas before me;

10 And in the vine ivere three branches: and it tvas as though it budded, and her blossoms shot forth; and the clusters thereof brought forth ripe grapes:

11 And Pharaoh's cup tvas in my hand: and I took the grapes, and pressed them into Pharaoh's cup, and I gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand.

12 And Joseph said unto him, /This is the interpretation of it: The three branches 'J are three days:

13 Yet within three days shall Pharaoh !l A lift up thine head, and restore thee unto thy place; and thou shalt deliver Pharaoh's cup into his hand, after the former manner when thou wast his butler.

14 But ti think on me when it shall be well with thee, and tshew kindness, I pray thee, unto me, and make mention of me unto Pharaoh, and bring me out of this house:

15 For indeed I was stolen away out of the land of the Hebrews: 'and here also have 1 done nothing that they should put mo into the dungeon.

16 When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good, he said unto Joseph, I also tvas in my dream, and, behold, I had three II white baskets on my head:

17 And in the uppermost basket there tvas of all manner of t bakemeats for Pharaoh; and the birds did eat them out of the basket upon my head.

18 And Joseph answered and said, mThis is the interpretation thereof: The three baskets are three days:

19 "Yet within three days shall Pharaoh II lift up thy head from off thee, and shall hang thee on a tree; and the birds shall eat thy flesh from off thee.

20 'i And it camo to pass the third day, which was Pharaoh's "birthday, that he Pmade a feast unto all his servants: and lie Uplifted up tho head of the chief butler and of tho chief baker among his servants.

21 And he r restored the chief butler unto his butlership again; and "he gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand:

22 But he (hanged the chief baker: as Joseph had interpreted to them.

23 Yet did not the chief butler remember Joseph, but "forgat him.

after them out of the river, ill favoured and leanfleshed; and stood by the other kine upon the brink of the river. 4, And the ill favoured and leanfleshed kine did eat up the seven well favoured and fat kine. So Pharaoh awoke.

5 And he slept and dreamed the second time: and, behold, seven ears of corn came up upon one stalk, trank and good.

6 And, behold, seven thin ears and blasted with the east wind sprung up after them.

7 And the seven thin ears devoured the seven rank and full ears. And Pharaoh awoke, and, behold, it was a dream.

8 And it came to pass in the morning a that his spirit was troubled; and he sent and called for all bthe magicians of Egypt, and all the cwise men thereof: and Pharaoh told them his dream; but there tucts none that could interpret them unto Pharaoh.

9 If Then spake the chief butler unto Pharaoh, saying, I do remember my faults this day:

10 Pharaoh was d wroth with hi3 servants, e and put me inward in the captain of the guard's house, both me and the chief baker:

11 And /we dreamed a dream in one night, I and he; we dreamed each man according to the interpretation of his dream.

12 And there was there with us a young man, a Hebrew, "servant to the captain of the guard; and we told him, and he h interpreted to us our dreams; to each man according to his dream he did interpret.

13 And it came to pass, «as he interpreted to us, so it was; me he restored unto mine office, and him he hanged.

14 K k Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they tJbrought him hastily '"but of the dungeon: and he shaved himself, and changed his raiment, and came in unto Pharaoh.

15 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and there is none that can interpret it: "and I have heard say of thee, that"thou canst understand a dream to interpret it.

16 And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me: ^God shall give Pharaoh m answer of peace.

17 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, ?In my dream, behold, I stood upon the bank of the

18 And, behold, there came up out of the river seven kine, fatfleshed and well favoured; and they fed in a meadow:

19 And, behold, seven other kine came up after them, poor and very ill favoured and leanfleshed, such as I never saw in all the land of Egypt for badness:

20 And the lean and the ill favoured kine did eat up the first seven fat kine:

21 And when they had t eaten them up, it could not be known that they had eaten them; but they tvere still ill favoured, as at the beginning. So I awoke.

22 And I saw in my dream, and, behold, !even ears came Up in one stalk, full and good:

. 23 And, behold, seven ears, II withered, thin, and blasted with the east wind, sprung up after them:

24 And the thin ears devoured the seven good ears: and ''I told this unto the magicians; but there was none that could declare it to me.

25 U And Joseph said unto Pharaoh, The dream of Pharaoh is one: "God hath shewed Pharaoh what ho is about to do.

26 The seven good kine are seven years;

3 seven years:

and the the dreai

27 And the seven thin and ill favoured kine that came up after them are seven years; and the seven empty ears blasted with the east wind shall be tseven years of famine.

28 "This is the thing which I have spoken unto Pharaoh: What God 13 about to do. he sheweth unto Pharaoh.

29 Behold, there come ^seven years of gTeat plenty throughout all the land of Egypt:

30 And there shall ^ arise after them seven years of famine; and all the plenty shall be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine z shall consume the land;

31 And the plenty shall not be known in the land by reason of that famine following; for it shall be very t grievous.

82 And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice; it is because the "thing is II established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.

33 Now therefore let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt.

34 let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint II officers over the land, and b take up the fifth part of the land of Egypt in the seven plenteous years.

35 And c'let them gather all the food of those good years that come, and lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities.
