(Before It's News)

3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than any
other of his children, because he was the son of his old age; and
he made him a long robe with sleeves.
4 But when his brothers saw that their
father loved him more than all his brothers, they hated him, and
could not speak peaceably to him.
12 Now his brothers went to pasture their
father’s flock near Shechem.
13 And Israel said to Joseph, “Are not your
brothers pasturing the flock at Shechem? Come, I will send you to
them.” And he said to him, “Here I am.”
17 And the man said, “They have gone away,
for I heard them say, `Let us go to Dothan.’” So Joseph went after
his brothers, and found them at Dothan.
18 They saw him afar off, and before he came
near to them they conspired against him to kill him.
19 They said to one another, “Here comes
this dreamer.
20 Come now, let us kill him and throw him
into one of the pits; then we shall say that a wild beast has
devoured him, and we shall see what will become of his
21 But when Reuben heard it, he delivered
him out of their hands, saying, “Let us not take his life.”
22 And Reuben said to them, “Shed no blood;
cast him into this pit here in the wilderness, but lay no hand upon
him” — that he might rescue him out of their hand, to restore him
to his father.
23 So when Joseph came to his brothers, they
stripped him of his robe, the long robe with sleeves that he
24 and they took him and cast him into a
pit. The pit was empty, there was no water in it.
25 Then they sat down to eat; and looking up
they saw a caravan of Ish’maelites coming from Gilead, with their
camels bearing gum, balm, and myrrh, on their way to carry it down
to Egypt.
26 Then Judah said to his brothers, “What
profit is it if we slay our brother and conceal his blood?
27 Come, let us sell him to the
Ish’maelites, and let not our hand be upon him, for he is our
brother, our own flesh.” And his brothers heeded him.
28 Then Mid’ianite traders passed by; and
they drew Joseph up and lifted him out of the pit, and sold him to
the Ish’maelites for twenty shekels of silver; and they took Joseph
to Egypt.
