← Genesis 36   Genesis 38 →

1 En Jakob het gewoon in die land van die vreemdelingskap van sy vader, in die land Kanaän.

2 Dit is die geskiedenis van Jakob. Josef het as seun van sewentien jaar die kleinvee opgepas saam met sy broers--hy was nog jonk--met die seuns van Bilha en die seuns van Silpa, die vroue van sy vader. En Josef het die slegte gerug oor hulle na hulle vader oorgebring.

3 En Israel het Josef meer lief gehad as al sy seuns; want hy was vir hom 'n seun van die ouderdom; en hy het vir hom 'n lang rok met moue gemaak.

4 Toe sy broers sien dat hulle vader hom meer as al sy broers liefhet, het hulle hom gehaat en kon nie vriendelik met hom praat nie.

5 Ook het Josef 'n droom gehad wat hy aan sy broers vertel het. Daaroor het hulle hom nog meer gehaat.

6 Hy het naamlik vir hulle gesê: Hoor tog hierdie droom wat ek gehad het.

7 Kyk, ons was besig om gerwe te bind op die land toe meteens my gerf gaan staan en ook regop bly staan, terwyl julle gerwe daar rondom kom en hulle voor my gerf neerbuig.

8 Toe sy broers aan hom: Wil jy miskien oor ons regeer? Of wil jy miskien oor ons heers? En hulle het hom nog meer gehaat oor sy drome en oor sy woorde.

9 Daarna het hy nog 'n ander droom gehad en dit aan sy broers vertel en gesê: Kyk, ek het nog 'n droom gehad--die son en die maan en elf sterre het hulle voor my neergebuig.

10 Toe hy dit aan sy vader en sy broers vertel, het sy vader hom hard bestraf en aan hom gesê: Wat is dit vir 'n droom wat jy gehad het? Moet ons werklik kom, ek en jou moeder en jou broers, om ons voor jou na die aarde neer te buig?

11 En sy broers was afgunstig op hom, maar sy vader het die saak in gedagte gehou.

12 En sy broers het die kleinvee van hulle vader by Sigem gaan oppas.

13 Toe Israel vir Josef: Pas jou broers nie die vee op by Sigem nie? Kom, laat ek jou na hulle toe stuur. En hy antwoord hom: Hier is ek!

14 Toe hy vir hom: Gaan tog verneem na die welstand van jou broers en die welstand van die vee, en bring vir my berig terug. So het hy hom dan uit die dal van Hebron weggestuur, en hy het by Sigem aangekom.

15 Daarop kry 'n man hom terwyl hy in die veld ronddwaal, en die man vra hom: Wat soek jy?

16 En hy antwoord: Ek soek my broers. Vertel my tog waar hulle die vee oppas.

17 Toe die man: Hulle het hiervandaan weggetrek, want ek het hulle hoor : Laat ons na Dotan gaan. En Josef het agter sy broers aan gegaan en hulle in Dotan gevind.

18 En hulle het hom van ver af gesien. Maar voordat hy naby hulle kom, het hulle listig raad gehou teen hom om hom dood te maak.

19 En hulle het vir mekaar gesê: Daar kom daardie dromer aan!

20 Kom dan nou, laat ons hom doodmaak en in een van die putte gooi en : 'n Wilde dier het hom opgeëet. Dan sal ons sien wat van sy drome word.

21 Toe Ruben dit hoor, het hy hom uit hulle hand gered deur te : Laat ons hom nie doodslaan nie.

22 Ruben het ook vir hulle gesê: Moenie bloed vergiet nie; gooi hom in hierdie put wat in die woestyn is, maar moenie die hand aan hom slaan nie--sodat hy hom uit hulle hand kon red om hom na sy vader terug te bring.

23 En toe Josef by sy broers kom, trek hulle Josef se rok uit, die rok met lang moue wat hy aangehad het,

24 en hulle neem hom en gooi hom in die put. Maar die put was leeg; daar was geen water in nie.

25 Daarna het hulle gaan sit om brood te eet; en toe hulle hul opslaan, sien hulle meteens 'n reisgeselskap Ismaeliete wat uit Gílead kom--hulle kamele gelaai met speserye en balsem en gom op pad om dit na Egipte af te bring.

26 Toe Juda aan sy broers: Watter voordeel is dit dat ons ons broer doodmaak en sy bloed verberg?

27 Kom, laat ons hom aan die Ismaeliete verkoop, maar laat ons hand nie teen hom wees nie, want hy is ons broer, ons vlees. En sy broers het na hom geluister.

28 En toe die Midianitiese koopmans verbykom, het hulle Josef uit die put uit opgetrek en uitgehaal en Josef aan die Ismaeliete verkoop vir twintig sikkels silwer. En húlle het Josef na Egipte gebring.

29 Toe Ruben by die put terugkom, was Josef nie in die put nie! Daarop skeur hy sy klere,

30 en hy gaan na sy broers terug en : Die seun is nie daar nie! En ek, waar moet ek heen?

31 Toe neem hulle Josef se rok, en hulle slag 'n bok en steek die rok in die bloed,

32 en hulle stuur die lang rok weg en laat dit na hulle vader bring met die woorde: Dit het ons gevind. Kyk tog goed of dit die rok van u seun is of nie.

33 En hy het dit herken en gesê: Die rok van my seun! 'n Wilde dier het hom opgeëet. Verskeur, Verskeur is Josef!

34 Toe skeur Jakob sy klere en trek 'n roukleed om sy heupe, en hy het oor sy seun gerou, baie dae lank.

35 En al sy seuns en al sy dogters het moeite gedoen om hom te troos, maar hy het geweier om hom te laat troos en gesê: Nee, treurende sal ek na my seun in die doderyk afdaal! So het sy vader hom dan beween.

36 En die Midianiete het hom na Egipte verkoop aan Pótifar, 'n hofdienaar van Farao, die owerste van die lyfwag.

Exploring the Meaning of Genesis 37      

Napsal(a) Joe David

The stories in the Old Testament foreshadow future events -- not so much historical events, but changes in the spiritual states of humankind.

In the inner meaning, the story of Jacob, and his twelve sons, and Joseph and his dreams, deals with people's eventual rejection of the Divine truths that they would receive from the Lord in the Christian church, and their acceptance of falsities instead.

Specifically, this chapter is about the way that some theologians in the Christian church developed the idea of salvation by faith alone, when the Lord really wants us to conjoin faith and charity in our lives.

This seems like a stretch - that a story from 3500+ years ago could be foreshadowing modern theological arguments. And yet, human beings, as partly-spiritual creatures, are always players in a big, long spiritual story - and the Old Testament stories are archetypes for things we wrestle with in our own lives. For the details of this story's meaning, look at Arcana Coelestia 4665, and the following passages.
