1 Men Jakob bosatte sig i det land där hans fader hade bott såsom främling, nämligen i Kanaans land.

2 Detta är berättelsen om Jakobs släkt. När Josef var sjutton år gammal, gick han, jämte sina bröder, i vall med fåren; han följde då såsom yngling med Bilhas och Silpas, sin faders hustrurs, söner. Och Josef bar fram till deras fader vad ont som sades om dem.

3 Men Israel hade Josef kärare än alla sina andra söner, eftersom han hade fött honom på sin ålderdom; och han lät göra åt honom en fotsid livklädnad.

4 Då nu hans bröder sågo att deras fader hade honom kärare än alla hans bröder, blevo de hätska mot honom och kunde icke tala vänligt till honom.

5 Därtill hade Josef en gång en dröm, som han omtalade för sina bröder; sedan hatade de honom ännu mer.

6 Han sade nämligen till dem: »Hören vilken dröm jag har haft.

7 Jag tyckte att vi bundo kärvar på fältet; och se, min kärve reste sig upp och blev stående, och edra kärvar ställde sig runt omkring och bugade sig för min kärve.»

8 Då sade hans bröder till honom: »Skulle du bliva vår konung, och skulle du råda över oss?» Och de hatade honom ännu mer för hans drömmars skull och för vad han hade sagt.

9 Sedan hade han ännu en annan dröm som han förtäljde för sina bröder; han sade: »Hören, jag har haft ännu en dröm. Jag tyckte att solen och månen och elva stjärnor bugade sig för mig.»

10 När han förtäljde detta för sin fader och sina bröder, bannade hans fader honom och sade till honom: »Vad är detta för en dröm som du har haft? Skulle då jag och din moder och dina bröder komma och buga oss ned till jorden för dig?»

11 Och hans bröder avundades honom; men hans fader bevarade detta i sitt minne.

12 Då nu en gång hans bröder hade gått bort för att vakta sin faders får i Sikem,

13 sade Israel till Josef: »Se, dina bröder vakta fåren i Sikem; gör dig redo, jag vill sända dig till dem.» Han svarade honom: »Jag är redo.»

14 Då sade han till honom: »Gå och se efter, om det står väl till med dina bröder, och om det står väl till med fåren, och kom tillbaka till mig med svar.» Så sände han honom åstad från Hebrons dal, och han kom till Sikem.

15 Där mötte han en man, medan han gick omkring villrådig på fältet; och mannen frågade honom: »Vad söker du?»

16 Han svarade: »Jag söker efter mina bröder; säg mig var de vakta sin hjord.»

17 Mannen svarade: »De hava brutit upp härifrån; ty jag hörde dem säga: 'Låt oss gå till Dotain.'» Då gick Josef vidare efter sina bröder och fann dem i Dotan.

18 När de nu på avstånd fingo se honom, innan han ännu hade hunnit fram till dem, lade de råd om att döda honom.

19 De sade till varandra: »Se, där kommer drömmaren.

20 Upp, låt oss dräpa honom och kasta honom i en brunn; sedan kunna vi säga att ett vilddjur har ätit upp honom. Så få vi se huru det går med hans drömmar

21 Men när uben hörde detta, ville han rädda honom undan deras händer och sade: »Låt oss icke slå ihjäl honom.»

22 Ytterligare sade uben till dem: »Utgjuten icke blod; kasten honom i brunnen här i öknen, men bären icke hand på honom.» Han ville nämligen rädda honom undan deras händer och föra honom tillbaka till hans fader.

23 Då nu Josef kom fram till sina bröder, togo de av honom hans livklädnad, den fotsida klädnaden som han hade på sig,

24 och grepo honom och kastade honom i brunnen; men brunnen var tom, intet vatten fanns däri.

25 Därefter satte de sig ned för att äta. När de då lyfte upp sina ögon, fingo de se ett tåg av ismaeliter komma från Gilead, och deras kameler voro lastade med dragantgummi, balsam och ladanum; de voro på väg med detta ned till Egypten.

26 Då sade Juda till sina bröder: »Vad gagn hava vi därav att vi dräpa vår broder och dölja hans blod

27 Nej, låt oss sälja honom till ismaeliterna; må vår hand icke komma vid honom, ty han är ju vår broder, vårt eget kött.» Och hans bröder lydde honom.

28 Då nu midjanitiska köpmän kommo där förbi, drogo de upp Josef ur brunnen; och de sålde Josef för tjugu siklar silver till ismaeliterna. Dessa förde så Josef till Egypten.

29 När sedan uben kom tillbaka till brunnen, se, då fanns Josef icke i brunnen. Då rev han sönder sina kläder

30 och vände tillbaka till sina bröder och sade: »Gossen är icke där, vart skall jag nu taga vägen?»

31 Men de togo Josefs livklädnad och slaktade en bock och doppade klädnaden i blodet;

32 därefter sände de den fotsida livklädnaden hem till sin fader och läto säga: »Denna har vi funnit; se efter, om det är din sons livklädnad eller icke.»

33 Och han kände igen den och sade: »Det är min sons livklädnad; ett vilddjur har ätit upp honom, förvisso är Josef ihjälriven.»

34 Och Jakob rev sönder sina kläder och svepte säcktyg om sina länder och sörjde sin son i lång tid.

35 Och alla hans söner och alla hans döttrar kommo för att trösta honom; men han ville icke låta trösta sig, utan sade: »Jag skall med sorg fara ned i dödsriket till min son.» Så begrät hans fader honom.

36 Men medaniterna förde honom till Egypten och sålde honom till Potifar, som var hovman hos Farao och hövitsman för drabanterna.

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.
