1 A Jakov se bijaše nastanio u zemlji gdje je njegov otac boravio kao pridošlica - u zemlji kanaanskoj.

2 Evo nasljedstva Jakovljeva. Kao mladić, u dobi od sedamnaest godina, Josip je čuvao stada sa svojom braćom, sinovima Bilhe i Zilpe, koje bijahu žene njegova oca. Josip je ocu svome donosio zle glasove o njima.

3 Izrael je volio Josipa više nego ijednog svoga sina jer je bio dijete njegove staračke dobi; i on mu napravi kićenu haljinu.

4 Kako njegova braća opaze da ga njihov otac voli više od svih drugih svojih sinova, zamrze ga toliko da mu nisu mogli ni prijaznu riječ progovoriti.

5 Jednom Josip usni san i kaza ga svojoj braći, a oni ga zbog toga još više zamrze.

6 "Poslušajte", reče im, "san što sam ga usnio!

7 Pomislite! Vezali smo nasred polja snopove, kadli se najednom moj snop uspravi i stade uzgor. Uto se vaši snopovi okupe okolo i duboko se poklone mom snopu."

8 Njegova ga braća upitaše: "Kaniš li nad nama zakraljevati? Hoćeš li nam biti gospodar?" I još ga više zamrze zbog njegova pričanja o snovima.

9 Usni on još jedan san te ga ispriča svojoj braći: "Još sam jedan san usnuo. Pazite! Sunce, mjesec i jedanaest zvijezda duboko mi se klanjahu!"

10 Kad je to ispričao svome ocu, ukori ga otac i reče mu: "Što znači taj san što si ga usnuo? Zar ćemo doći ja, tvoja majka i tvoja braća pa ti se do zemlje klanjati?"

11 I dok su braća od zavisti bila ljuta na nj, njegov je otac razmišljao o svemu.

12 Jednom njegova braća odu čuvati očeva stada blizu Šekema.

13 Izrael reče Josipu: "Tvoja braća čuvaju stada kod Šekema, pa hajde da te pošaljem k njima." On mu odgovori: "Dobro, idem."

14 Potom će mu otac: "Hajde i vidi kako su ti braća i stoka pa mi javi." Tako ga otpremi iz doline Hebrona, i on stigne u Šekem.

15 Neki čovjek nađe ga gdje luta poljem pa ga upita: "Što tražiš?"

16 "Tražim braću", odgovori. "Možeš li mi kazati gdje čuvaju stada?"

17 A čovjek reče: "Odavde su otišli. Čuo sam ih gdje govore: 'Hajdemo u Dotan.'" Tako Josip ode za svojom braćom i nađe ih u Dotanu.

18 Oni ga opaze izdaleka; prije nego im se približio, počnu se dogovarati da ga ubiju.

19 I jedan drugom reče: "Eno stiže onaj sanjar!

20 Hajde da ga sad ubijemo i bacimo u kakvu čatrnju! Možemo kazati da ga je proždrla divlja zvijer. Vidjet ćemo što će biti od njegovih snova!"

21 Ali kad je to čuo Ruben, pokuša da ga izbavi iz njihovih šaka. I reče: "Nemojmo oduzimati njegova života!

22 Ne prolijevajte krvi" - dalje je govorio Ruben. "Bacite ga u čatrnju u pustari; ali ne dižite na nj ruke!" Htio ga je tako izbaviti iz njihovih šaka i odvesti ocu.

23 Ali kad je Josip stigao braći, oni s Josipa svuku njegovu haljinu, haljinu kićenu što je bila na njemu;

24 pograbe ga i bace u čatrnju. Čatrnja je bila prazna; nije bilo u njoj vode.

25 Potom sjednu da ručaju. Kako podignu svoje oči, opaze povorku Jišmaelaca gdje dolazi iz Gileada. Deve su im nosile mirodije, balzam i mirisavu smolu da ih preprodaju u Egipat.

26 Tada reče Juda svojoj braći: "Što ćemo postići ako ubijemo svog brata a krv njegovu sakrijemo?

27 Hajde da ga prodamo Jišmaelcima; ali ne dižimo na nj ruke. TÓa on je naš brat, naše meso." Braća ga poslušaju.

28 Uto naiđu ljudi, midjanski trgovci. Braća izvuku Josipa iz čatrnje i prodaju ga za dvadeset srebrnika Jišmaelcima, a oni Josipa dovedu u Egipat.

29 Kad se Ruben vratio k čatrnji i vidio da Josipa nema u čatrnji, razdere svoju odjeću.

30 A kad se vratio svojoj braći, povika: "Dječaka nema! Kamo ću ja sad?"

31 A oni uzmu Josipovu haljinu, zakolju jedno kozle i haljinu zamoče u krv.

32 Kićenu haljinu otpreme ocu i poruče: "Ovo smo našli; gledaj je li ovo haljina tvoga sina ili nije."

33 Prepozna je on pa reče: "Haljina je moga sina! Divlja ga je zvijer rastrgla! Na komade je Josip rastrgan!"

34 I razdere Jakov svoje haljine, stavi pokorničku kostrijet oko bokova i dugo vremena oplakivaše svoga sina.

35 Svi su ga njegovi sinovi i sve njegove kćeri nastojali utješiti, ali se on ne mogaše utješiti. Govorio je: "Ne, sići ću k svome sinu u Šeol tugujući!" Tako ga je oplakivao njegov otac.

36 A Midjanci ga prodaju u Egipat Potifaru, dvoraninu faraonovu, zapovjedniku straže.

Exploring the Meaning of Genesis 37      

By Rev. George McCurdy

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.
