Joseph hated of his brethren.

4 And when his brethren saw that their
father loved him more than all his brethren,
they ''hated him, and could not speak peace-
ably unto him.

5 II And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he
told it his brethren : and they hated him yet
the more.

6 And he said unto them. Hear, I pray
you, this dream which I have dreamed :

7 For ^behold, 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

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 H And he 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
ethy brethren indeed come to bow down our-
selves to thee to the earth ?

11 And '•his brethren envied him ; but his
father 'observed the saying.

12 IT 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,
t see whether it be well wjith thy brethren,
and well with the flocks ; and bring me word
again. So he sent him out of the vale of
''Hebron, and he came to Shechem.

15 T^And a certain man found him, and
behold, he was 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 flocJcs.

17 And the man said. They are departed
hence : for I heard them say, I-et us go to
Dothan. And Joseph went after his brethren, ^
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
we shall see what will become of his dreams.

21 And P Reuben heard it, and he deli-
vered him out of their hands ; and said, Let
us not kill him.

22 And Reuben said unto them, Shed no
blood, hut 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 deli-
ver him to his father again.

23 IT And it came to pass when Joseph
was come unto his brethren, that they stript
Joseph out of his coat, his coat of many || co-
lours 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 spicery, and
°balm, and myrrh, going to carry it down to

26 And Judah said unto his brethren,
What profit is it if we slay our brother, and
'conceal his blood ?

27 Come, and let us sell him to the Ish-
maelites, and "let not our hand be upon him;
for he is '^our brother, and your flesh: and
his brethren t were content.

28 Then there passed by ^Midianites, mer-
chant-men; and they drew and hfted up Joseph
out of the pit, ■'and sold Joseph to the Ish-
maelites for •'twenty pieces of silver: and
they brought Joseph into Egypt.

29 IF And Reuben returned unto the pit ;
and behold, Joseph was not in the pit : and
he "rent his clothes.

30 And he returned unto his brethren,
and said, The child '^is not : and I, whither
shall I go ?

31 And they took * Joseph's coat, and
killed a kid of the goats, and dipped the coat
in the blood :

32 And they sent the coat of many colours,
and they brought it to their father ; and said,
This have we found : know now whether it be
thy son's coat or no.

33 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
'' rose up to comfort him ; but he refused to
be comforted; and he said. For 'I will go
down into the grave unto my son mourning.
Thus his father wept for him.

Tamar deceiveth Judah.

36 And ^ the Midianites sold him into
Egypt unto Potiphar, an t officer of Pha.
raoh's, and f || captain of the guard.


1 Judah legetteth Er, Onan, and Shelah. 6 Er mar-
rieth Tamar. 8 The trespass of Onan. 11 Tamar
stayeth for Shelah. 13 She deceiveth Judah. 27 She
heareth twins, Pharez and Zarah.

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

2 And Judah •'saw there a daughter of a
certain Canaanite, whose name M)as "^Shuah;
and he took her, and went in unto her.

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

4 And she conceived again, and bare a
son ; and she called his name "^Onan.

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

6 And Judah stook a wife for Er his
first-born, whose name was Tamar.

7 And ""Er, Judah's first-born^ 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 f displeased
the Lord : wherefore he slew "'him also.

11 Then said Judah to Tamar his daugh-
ter-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.

1 2 IT And t in process of time, the daughter
of Shuah, Judah's wife died : and Judah p was
comforted, and went np unto his sheep-
shearers to Timnath,he and his friend Hirah
the AduUamite.

13 And it was told Tamar, saying, Be-
hold, thy father-in-law goeth up "itoTimnath,
to shear his sheep.

14 And she put her widow's garments ofT
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
'that Shelah was grown, and she M^as not
given unto him to wife.

15 When Judah saw her, he thought her to
ieanharlotjbecause she had covered her face


She bearetk Pharez and Zarak.


16 And he turned unto her by the way,
and said, Go to, I pray thee, let me come
in unto thee ; (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, "I will send thee f a 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, ''Thy signet, and thy
bracelets, and thy stafi" that is in thy hand :
and he gave it her, and came in unto her,
and she conceived by him.

19 And she arose and went away and
ylaid 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 AduUamite, to receive Ms
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
II openly by the way-side ? And they said.
There was no harlot in this place.

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

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

241Anditcametopass about three months
after, that it was told Judah, saying, Tamar
thy daughter-in-law hath Splayed the harlot ;
and also, behold, she is with child by whore-
dom. And Judah said, Bring her forth,
" and let her be burnt.

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

26 And Judah ''acknowledged them, and
said, * She hath been more righteous than
I ; because that ''I gave her not to Shelah my
-son : and he knew her again sno more.

27 IT And it came to pass in the time of
her travail, that behold, twins were in her

28 And it came to pass when she travail-
ed, that the one put out his hand ; and the
midwife took and bound upon his hand a
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, || How hast thou broken forth?
this breach he upon thee : therefore his name
was called || '■Pharez.

that had the scarlet thread upon his hand ;
and his name was called Zarah.


1 Joseph advanced in Potipkar's house. 7 He resisteth
his viistress^s temptation. 13 He is falsely accused.
20 He is cast into prison. 21 God is with him there.

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

2 And "the Lord was with Joseph, and
he was a prosperous man : and he 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 "found grace in his sight,
and he served him : and he made him '"over-
seer 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
he 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
'■was a goodly person, and well-favoured.

7 IT And it came to pass after these things,
that his master's wife cast her eyes upon
Joseph : and she said, 'Lie 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 ;

9 There is none greater in this house than
I ; neither hath he kept back any thing from
me,but thee, because thou art his wife : ^ how
then can I do this great wickedness, and 'sin
against God ?

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 an Hebrew unto us to mock

us : he came in unto me to lie Avith me, and
I cried with a t loud voice :

15 And it came to pass, when he heard
that I hfted 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 hfted 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
P put him into the i prison, a place where the
king's prisoners were bound : and he was
there in the prison.

21 IT But the Lord was with Joseph, and
t shewed him niercy, and "^gave him favour in
the sight of the keeper of the prison.

22 And the keeper of the prison ^ commit-
ted 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.


1 The butler and baker of Pharaoh in prison. 4 Joseph
hath charge of them. 5 He interpreteth their dreams.
20 They come to pass 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 oflended their lord the
king of Egypt.

2 And Pharaoh was ''wroth against two of
his officers, against the chief of the butlers,
and 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 was bound.

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

5 IF And they dreamed a dream both of
them, each man his dream in one night, each
man according to the interpretation of his
dream ; the butler and the baker of the king
of Egypt, which were bound in the prison.

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