1 Or Giacobbe dimorò nel paese dove suo padre avea soggiornato, nel paese di Canaan.

2 E questa è la posterità di Giacobbe. Giuseppe, all’età di diciassette anni, pasceva il gregge coi suoi fratelli; e, giovinetto com’era, stava coi figliuoli di Bilha e coi figliuoli di Zilpa, mogli di suo padre. E Giuseppe riferì al loro padre la mala fama che circolava sul loro conto.

3 Or Israele amava Giuseppe più di tutti gli altri suoi figliuoli, perché era il figlio della sua vecchiaia; e gli fece una veste lunga con le maniche.

4 E i suoi fratelli, vedendo che il loro padre l’amava più di tutti gli altri fratelli, l’odiavano, e non gli potevan parlare amichevolmente.

5 Or Giuseppe ebbe un sogno, e lo raccontò ai suoi fratelli; e questi l’odiaron più che mai.

6 Egli disse loro: "Udite, vi prego, il sogno che ho fatto.

7 Noi stavamo legando de’ covoni in mezzo ai campi, quand’ecco che il mio covone si levò su e si tenne ritto; ed ecco i covoni vostri farsi d’intorno al mio covone, e inchinarglisi dinanzi".

8 Allora i suoi fratelli gli dissero: "Dovrai tu dunque regnare su noi? o dominarci?" E l’odiarono più che mai a motivo de’ suoi sogni e delle sue parole.

9 Egli ebbe ancora un altro sogno, e lo raccontò ai suoi fratelli, dicendo: "Ho avuto un altro sogno! Ed ecco che il sole, la luna e undici stelle mi s’inchinavano dinanzi".

10 Ei lo raccontò a suo padre e ai suoi fratelli; e suo padre lo sgridò, e gli disse: "Che significa questo sogno che hai avuto? Dovremo dunque io e tua madre e i tuoi fratelli venir proprio a inchinarci davanti a te fino a terra?"

11 E i suoi fratelli gli portavano invidia, ma suo padre serbava dentro di sé queste parole.

12 Or i fratelli di Giuseppe erano andati a pascere il gregge del padre a Sichem.

13 E Israele disse a Giuseppe: "I tuoi fratelli non sono forse alla pastura a Sichem? Vieni, che ti manderò da loro". Ed egli rispose: "Eccomi".

14 Israele gli disse: "Va’ a vedere se i tuoi fratelli stanno bene, e se tutto va bene col gregge; e torna a dirmelo". Così lo mandò dalla valle di Hebron, e Giuseppe arrivò a Sichem.

15 E un uomo lo trovò che andava errando per i campi e quest’uomo lo interrogò dicendo: "Che cerchi?"

16 Egli rispose: "Cerco i miei fratelli; deh, dimmi dove siano a pascere il gregge".

17 E quell’uomo gli disse: "Son partiti di qui, perché li ho uditi che dicevano: Andiamocene a Dotan". Giuseppe andò quindi in traccia de’ suoi fratelli, e li trovò a Dotan.

18 Essi lo scorsero da lontano; e prima ch’egli fosse loro vicino, macchinarono d’ucciderlo.

19 E dissero l’uno all’altro: "Ecco cotesto sognatore che viene!

20 Ora dunque venite, uccidiamolo, e gettiamolo in una di queste cisterne; diremo poi che una mala bestia l’ha divorato, e vedremo che ne sarà de’ suoi sogni".

21 Ruben udì questo, e lo liberò dalle loro mani. Disse: "Non gli togliamo la vita".

22 Poi Ruben aggiunse: "Non spargete sangue; gettatelo in quella cisterna ch’è nel deserto, ma non lo colpisca la vostra mano". Diceva così, per liberarlo dalle loro mani e restituirlo a suo padre.

23 Quando Giuseppe fu giunto presso i suoi fratelli, lo spogliarono della sua veste, della veste lunga con le maniche che aveva addosso;

24 lo presero e lo gettarono nella cisterna. Or la cisterna era vuota; non c’era punt’acqua.

25 Poi si misero a sedere per prender cibo; e avendo alzati gli occhi, ecco che videro una carovana d’Ismaeliti, che veniva da Galaad, coi suoi cammelli carichi di aromi, di balsamo e di mirra, che portava in Egitto.

26 E Giuda disse ai suoi fratelli: "Che guadagneremo a uccidere il nostro fratello e a nascondere il suo sangue?

27 Venite, vendiamolo agl’Ismaeliti, e non lo colpisca la nostra mano, poiché è nostro fratello, nostra carne". E i suoi fratelli gli diedero ascolto.

28 E come que’ mercanti Madianiti passavano, essi trassero e fecero salire Giuseppe su dalla cisterna, e lo vendettero per venti sicli d’argento a quegl’Ismaeliti. E questi menarono Giuseppe in Egitto.

29 Or Ruben tornò alla cisterna; ed ecco, Giuseppe non era più nella cisterna. Allora egli si stracciò le vesti,

30 tornò dai suoi fratelli, e disse: "Il fanciullo non c’è più; e io, dove andrò io?"

31 Essi presero la veste di Giuseppe, scannarono un becco, e intrisero del sangue la veste.

32 Poi mandarono uno a portare al padre loro la veste lunga con le maniche, e gli fecero dire: "Abbiam trovato questa veste; vedi tu se sia quella del tuo figliuolo, o no".

33 Ed egli la riconobbe e disse: "E’ la veste del mio figliuolo; una mala bestia l’ha divorato; per certo, Giuseppe è stato sbranato".

34 E Giacobbe si stracciò le vesti, si mise un cilicio sui fianchi, e fece cordoglio del suo figliuolo per molti giorni.

35 E tutti i suoi figliuoli e tutte le sue figliuole vennero a consolarlo; ma egli rifiutò d’esser consolato, e disse: "Io scenderò, facendo cordoglio, dal mio figliuolo, nel soggiorno de’ morti". E suo padre lo pianse.

36 E que’ Madianiti lo vendettero in Egitto a Potifar, ufficiale di Faraone, capitano 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.
