Genesis 37:1-11New International Version (NIV) Joseph’s Dreams 37  Jacob lived in the land where his father had stayed, the land of Canaan. 2  This is the account of Jacob’s family line. Joseph, a young man of seventeen, was tending the flocks with his brothers, the sons of Bilhah and the sons of Zilpah, his father’s wives, and he brought their father a bad report about them. 3  Now Israel loved Joseph more than any of his other sons , because he had been born to him in his old age; and he made an ornate robe  for him.  4  When his brothers saw that their father loved him more than any of them, they hated him and could not speak a kind word to him. 5  Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him all the more.  6  He said to them, “Listen to this dream I had:  7 We were binding sheaves of grain out in the field when suddenly my sheaf rose and stood upright, while your sheaves gathered around mine and bowed down to it.” 8  His brothers said to him, “Do you intend to reign over us? Will you actually rule us?”  And they hated him all the more because of his dream and what he had said. 9  Then he had another dream, and he told it to his brothers. “Listen,” he said, “I had another dream, and this time the sun and moon and eleven stars were bowing down to me.” 10  When he told his father as well as his brothers, his father rebuked him and said, “What is this dream you had? Will your mother and I and your brothers actually come and bow down to the ground before you?”  11  His brothers were jealous of him, but his father kept the matter in mind.


Joseph Sold by His Brothers 12  Now his brothers had gone to graze their father’s flocks near Shechem,  13  and Israel said to Joseph, “As you know, your brothers are grazing the flocks near Shechem. Come, I am going to send you to them.” “Very well,” he replied. 14  So he said to him, “Go and see if all is well with your brothers and with the flocks, and bring word back to me.” Then he sent him off from the Valley of Hebron. When Joseph arrived at Shechem,  15  a man found him wandering around in the fields and asked him, “What are you looking for?” 16  He replied, “I’m looking for my brothers. Can you tell me where they are grazing their flocks?” 17  “They have moved on from here,” the man answered. “I heard them say, ‘Let’s go to Dothan.’” So Joseph went after his brothers and found them near Dothan.  18  But they saw him in the distance, and before he reached them, they plotted to kill him. 19  “Here comes that dreamer!” they said to each other.  20  “Come now, let’s kill him and throw him into one of these cisterns and say that a ferocious animal devoured him. Then we’ll see what comes of his dreams.” 21  When Reuben heard this, he tried to rescue him from their hands. “Let’s not take his life,” he said.  22  “Don’t shed any blood. Throw him into this cistern here in the wilderness, but don’t lay a hand on him.” Reuben said this to rescue him from them and take him back to his father. 23 So when Joseph came to his brothers, they stripped him of his robe—the ornate robe he was wearing— 24 and they took him and threw him into the cistern. The cistern was empty; there was no water in it.


25  As they sat down to eat their meal, they looked up and saw a caravan of Ishmaelites coming from Gilead. Their camels were loaded with spices, balm and myrrh, and they were on their way to take them down to Egypt. 26  Judah said to his brothers, “What will we gain if we kill our brother and cover up his blood?  27  Come, let’s sell him to the Ishmaelites and not lay our hands on him; after all, he is our brother, our own flesh and blood.” His brothers agreed. 28 So when the Midianite merchants came by, his brothers pulled Joseph up out of the cistern and sold him for twenty shekels of silver to the Ishmaelites, who took him to Egypt. 29  When Reuben returned to the cistern and saw that Joseph was not there, he tore his clothes.  30  He went back to his brothers and said, “The boy isn’t there! Where can I turn now?” 31  Then they got Joseph’s robe, slaughtered a goat and dipped the robe in the blood.  32  They took the ornate robe back to their father and said, “We found this. Examine it to see whether it is your son’s robe.” 33  He recognized it and said, “It is my son’s robe! Some ferocious animal has devoured him. Joseph has surely been torn to pieces.” 34  Then Jacob tore his clothes, put on sackcloth and mourned for his son many days.  35  All his sons and daughters came to comfort him, but he refused to be comforted. “No,” he said, “I will continue to mourn until I join my son in the grave.” So his father wept for him. 36 Meanwhile, the Midianites sold Joseph in Egypt to Potiphar, one of Pharaoh’s officials, the captain of the guard.


Genesis 39:1-10 New International Version (NIV) Joseph and Potiphar’s Wife 39  Now Joseph had been taken down to Egypt. Potiphar, an Egyptian who was one of Pharaoh’s officials, the captain of the guard, bought him from the Ishmaelites who had taken him there. 2 The Lord was with Joseph so that he prospered, and he lived in the house of his Egyptian master.  3  When his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord gave him success in everything he did, 4  Joseph found favor in his eyes and became his attendant. Potiphar put him in charge of his household, and he entrusted to his care everything he owned.  5  From the time he put him in charge of his household and of all that he owned, the Lord blessed the household of the Egyptian because of Joseph. The blessing of the Lord was on everything Potiphar had, both in the house and in the field.  6  So Potiphar left everything he had in Joseph’s care; with Joseph in charge, he did not concern himself with anything except the food he ate. Now Joseph was well-built and handsome,  7 and after a while his master’s wife took notice of Joseph and said, “Come to bed with me!” 8  But he refused. “With me in charge,” he told her, “my master does not concern himself with anything in the house; everything he owns he has entrusted to my care.  9  No one is greater in this house than I am. My master has withheld nothing from me except you, because you are his wife. How then could I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?”10 And though she spoke to Joseph day after day, he refused to go to bed with her or even be with her.


11  One day he went into the house to attend to his duties, and none of the household servants was inside.  12 She caught him by his cloak and said, “Come to bed with me!” But he left his cloak in her hand and ran out of the house. 13  When she saw that he had left his cloak in her hand and had run out of the house,  14  she called her household servants. “Look,” she said to them, “this Hebrew has been brought to us to make sport of us! He came in here to sleep with me, but I screamed.  15  When he heard me scream for help, he left his cloak beside me and ran out of the house.” 16  She kept his cloak beside her until his master came home.  17  Then she told him this story: “That Hebrew slave you brought us came to me to make sport of me.  18  But as soon as I screamed for help, he left his cloak beside me and ran out of the house.” 19  When his master heard the story his wife told him, saying, “This is how your slave treated me,” he burned with anger.  20 Joseph’s master took him and put him in prison, the place where the king’s prisoners were confined. But while Joseph was there in the prison,  21 the Lord was with him ; he showed him kindness and granted him favor in the eyes of the prison warden.  22  So the warden put Joseph in charge of all those held in the prison, and he was made responsible for all that was done there.  23  The warden paid no attention to anything under Joseph’s care, because the Lord was with Joseph and gave him success in whatever he did
