1 Or Jacob demeura au pays où son père avait demeuré comme étranger, [c'est-à-dire] au pays de Canaan.

2 Ce sont ici les générations de Jacob. Joseph âgé de dix-sept ans, paissait avec ses frères les troupeaux, et il était jeune garçon entre les enfants de Bilha, et entre les enfants de Zilpa, femmes de son père. Et Joseph rapporta à leur père leurs méchants discours.

3 Or Israël aimait Joseph plus que tous ses [autres] fils, parce qu'il l'avait eu en sa vieillesse, et il lui fit une robe bigarrée.

4 Et ses frères voyant que leur père l'aimait plus qu'eux tous, le haïssaient, et ne pouvaient lui parler avec douceur.

5 Or Joseph songea un songe, lequel il récita à ses frères; et ils le haïrent encore davantage.

6 Il leur dit donc : Ecoutez, je vous prie, le songe que j'ai songé.

7 Voici, nous liions des gerbes au milieu d'un champ; et voici, ma gerbe se leva, et se tint droite; et voici, vos gerbes l'environnèrent, et se prosternèrent devant ma gerbe.

8 Alors ses frères lui dirent : Régnerais-tu en effet sur nous? et dominerais-tu en effet sur nous? Et ils le haïrent encore plus pour ses songes, et pour ses paroles.

9 Il songea encore un autre songe, et il le récita a ses frères, en disant : Voici, j'ai songé encore un songe, et voici, le soleil, et la lune, et onze étoiles se prosternaient devant moi.

10 Et quand il le récita à son père, et à ses frères, son père le reprit, et lui dit : Que veut dire ce songe que tu as songé? Faudra-t-il que nous venions moi, et ta mère, et tes frères nous prosterner en terre devant toi?

11 Et ses frères eurent de l'envie contre lui; mais son père retenait ses discours.

12 Or ses frères s'en allèrent paître les troupeaux de leur père en Sichem.

13 Et Israël dit à Joseph : Tes frères ne paissent-ils pas [les troupeaux] en Sichem? Viens, que je t'envoie vers eux; et il lui répondit : Me voici.

14 Et il lui dit : Va maintenant, vois si tes frères se portent bien, et si les troupeaux [sont en bon état], et rapporte-le-moi. Ainsi il l'envoya de la vallée de Hébron, et il vint jusqu'en Sichem.

15 Et un homme le trouva comme il était errant par les champs; et cet homme lui demanda, et lui dit : Que cherches-tu?

16 Et il répondit : Je cherche mes frères; je te prie, enseigne-moi où ils paissent.

17 Et l'homme dit : Ils sont partis d'ici; et j'ai entendu qu'ils disaient : Allons en Dothaïn. Joseph donc alla après ses frères, et les trouva en Dothaïn.

18 Et ils le virent de loin; et avant qu'il approchât d'eux, ils complotèrent contre lui, pour le tuer.

19 Et ils se dirent l'un à l'autre : Voici, ce maître songeur vient.

20 Maintenant donc, venez, et tuons-le, et jetons-le dans une de ces fosses; et nous dirons qu'une mauvaise bête l'a dévoré, et nous verrons que deviendront ses songes.

21 Mais Ruben entendit cela, et le délivra de leurs mains, en disant : Ne lui otons point la vie.

22 Ruben leur dit encore : Ne répandez point le sang; jetez-le dans cette fosse qui est au désert, mais ne mettez point la main sur lui. C'était pour le délivrer de leurs mains, et le renvoyer à son père.

23 Aussitôt donc que Joseph fut venu à ses frères, ils le dépouillèrent de sa robe, de cette robe bigarrée qui était sur lui.

24 Et l'ayant pris, ils le jetèrent dans la fosse; mais la fosse était vide, et il n'y avait point d'eau.

25 Ensuite ils s'assirent pour manger du pain; et levant les yeux ils regardèrent, et voici une troupe d'Ismaélites qui passaient, et qui venaient de Galaad, et leurs chameaux portaient des drogues, du baume, et de la myrrhe; et ils allaient porter ces choses en Egypte.

26 Et Juda dit à ses frères : Que gagnerons-nous à tuer notre frère, et à cacher son sang?

27 Venez, et vendons-le à ces Ismaélites, et ne mettons point notre main sur lui; car notre frère, [c'est] notre chair; et ses frères y acquiescèrent.

28 Et comme les marchands Madianites passaient, ils tirèrent et firent remonter Joseph de la fosse, et le vendirent vingt [pièces] d'argent aux Ismaélites, qui emmenèrent Joseph en Egypte.

29 Puis Ruben retourna à la fosse, et voici, Joseph n'était plus dans la fosse; et [Ruben] déchira ses vêtements.

30 Il retourna vers ses frères, et leur dit : L'enfant ne se trouve point; et moi! moi! où irai-je?

31 Et ils prirent la robe de Joseph, et ayant tué un bouc d'entre les chèvres, ils ensanglantèrent la robe.

32 Puis ils envoyèrent et firent porter à leur père la robe bigarrée, en lui disant : Nous avons trouvé ceci; reconnais maintenant si c'est la robe de ton fils, ou non.

33 Et il la reconnut, et dit : C'est la robe de mon fils ; une mauvaise bête l'a dévoré : certainement Joseph a été déchiré.

34 Et Jacob déchira ses vêtements, et mit un sac sur ses reins, et mena deuil sur son fils durant plusieurs jours.

35 Et tous ses fils, et toutes ses filles vinrent pour le consoler. Mais il rejeta toute consolation, et dit : Certainement je descendrai en menant deuil au sépulcre vers mon fils; c'est ainsi que son père le pleurait.

36 Et les Madianites le vendirent en Egypte à Potiphar, Eunuque de Pharaon, Prévôt de l'hôtel.

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.
