Giovanni Diodati Bibbia (1649)         

← Genesi 36   Genesi 38 →

1 OR Giacobbe abitò nel paese dove suo padre era andato peregrinando, nel paese di Canaan.

2 E le generazioni di Giacobbe furono quelle. Giuseppe, essendo giovane, d’età di diciassette anni, pasturava le gregge, coi suoi fratelli, co’ figliuoli di Bilha, e coi figliuoli di Zilpa, mogli di suo padre. Ed egli rapportava al padre loro la mala fama che andava attorno di loro.

3 Or Israele amava Giuseppe più che tutti gli altri suoi figliuoli; perciocchè gli era nato nella sua vecchiezza, e gli fece una giubba vergata.

4 E i suoi fratelli, veggendo che il padre loro l’amava più che tutti i suoi fratelli, l’odiavano, e non potevano parlar con lui in pace.

5 E Giuseppe sognò un sogno, ed egli lo raccontò a’ suoi fratelli; ed essi l’odiarono vie maggiormente.

6 Egli adunque disse loro: Deh! udite questo sogno che io ho sognato.

7 Ecco, noi legavamo i covoni in mezzo di un campo; ed ecco, il mio covone si levò su, ed anche si tenne ritto; ed ecco, i vostri covoni furon d’intorno al mio covone, e gli s’inchinarono.

8 E i suoi fratelli gli dissero: Regneresti tu pur sopra noi? signoreggeresti tu pur sopra noi? Essi adunque l’odiarono vie maggiormente per i suoi sogni, e per le sue parole.

9 Ed egli sognò ancora un altro sogno, e lo raccontò a’ suoi fratelli, dicendo: Ecco, io ho sognato ancora un sogno: ed ecco, il sole, e la luna, ed undici stelle, mi s’inchinavano.

10 Ed egli lo raccontò a suo padre, e a’ suoi fratelli. E suo padre lo sgridò, e gli disse: Quale è questo sogno che tu hai sognato? avremo noi, io, e tua madre, e i tuoi fratelli, pure a venire ad inchinarci a te a terra?

11 E i suoi fratelli gli portavano invidia; ma suo padre riserbava appo sè queste parole.

12 Or i suoi fratelli andarono a pasturar le gregge del padre loro in Sichem.

13 Ed Israele disse a Giuseppe: I tuoi fratelli non pasturano essi in Sichem? Vieni, ed io ti manderò a loro. Ed egli disse: Eccomi.

14 Ed esso gli disse: Or va’, e vedi se i tuoi fratelli, e le gregge, stanno bene, e rapportamelo. Così lo mandò dalla valle di Hebron; ed egli venne in Sichem.

15 Ed un uomo lo trovò ch’egli andava errando per li campi; e quell’uomo lo domandò, e gli disse: Che cerchi?

16 Ed egli disse: Io cerco i miei fratelli; deh! insegnami dove essi pasturano.

17 E quell’uomo gli disse: Essi son partiti di qui; perciocchè io li udii che dicevano: Andamocene in Dotain. Giuseppe adunque andò dietro a’ suoi fratelli, e li trovò in Dotain.

18 Ed essi lo videro da lungi; ed avanti che si appressasse a loro, macchinarono contro a lui, per ucciderlo.

19 E dissero l’uno all’altro: Ecco cotesto sognatore viene.

20 Ora dunque venite, ed uccidiamolo; e poi gittiamolo in una di queste fosse; e noi diremo che una mala bestia l’ha divorato; e vedremo che diverranno i suoi sogni.

21 Ma Ruben, udendo questo, lo riscosse dalle lor mani, e disse: Non percotiamolo a morte.

22 Ruben ancora disse loro: Non ispandete il sangue; gittatelo in quella fossa ch’è nel deserto, ma non gli mettete la mano addosso; per riscuoterlo dalle lor mani e per rimenarlo a suo padre.

23 E, quando Giuseppe fu venuto a’ suoi fratelli, essi lo spogliarono della sua giubba, di quella giubba vergata ch’egli avea indosso.

24 Poi lo presero, e lo gittarono in quella fossa: or la fossa era vota, e non vi era acqua alcuna dentro.

25 Poi si assettarono per prender cibo, ed alzarono gli occhi, e videro una carovana d’Ismaeliti che veniva di Galaad, i cui cammelli erano carichi di cose preziose, di balsamo e di mirra; ed essi andavano per portar quelle cose in Egitto.

26 E Giuda disse a’ suoi fratelli: Che guadagno faremo, quando avremo ucciso il nostro fratello, ed avremo occultato il suo sangue?

27 Venite, vendiamolo a cotesti Ismaeliti, e non mettiamogli la mano addosso; perciocchè egli è nostro fratello, nostra carne. E i suoi fratelli gli acconsentirono.

28 E come que’ mercatanti Madianiti passavano, essi trassero e fecero salir Giuseppe fuor di quella fossa, e per venti sicli d’argento lo vendettero a quegl’Ismaeliti; ed essi lo menarono in Egitto.

29 Or Ruben tornò alla fossa, ed ecco, Giuseppe non v’era più; ed egli stracciò i suoi vestimenti.

30 E tornò a’ suoi fratelli, e disse: Il fanciullo non si trova; ed io, dove andrò io?

31 Ed essi presero la giubba di Giuseppe; e scannarono un becco, e tinsero quella col sangue.

32 E mandarono a portar quella giubba vergata al padre loro, ed a dirgli: Noi abbiam trovata questa giubba: riconosci ora se è la giubba del tuo figliuolo, o no.

33 Ed egli la riconobbe, e disse: Questa è la giubba del mio figliuolo; una mala bestia l’ha divorato; Giuseppe per certo è stato lacerato.

34 E Giacobbe stracciò i suoi vestimenti, e si mise un sacco sopra i lombi, e fece cordoglio del suo figliuolo per molti giorni.

35 E tutti i suoi figliuoli, e tutte le sue figliuole, si levarono per consolarlo; ma egli rifiutò di esser consolato, e disse: Certo io scenderò con cordoglio al mio figliuolo nel sepolcro. E suo padre lo pianse.

36 E que’ Madianiti, menato Giuseppe in Egitto, lo vendettero a Potifarre, Eunuco di Faraone, Capitan delle guardie.

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.
