5 Joseph had a dream and told it to his brothers, saying,
7 We were binding sheaves in the field, and my sheaf stood up, and your sheaves bowed down to worship me.
8 Joseph's brothers responded, "So you are going to reign over us?"
And they hated him even more for it.
Joseph's second dream
9 Joseph had another dream, and told it to his brothers, saying,
I had another dream where the sun, moon, and eleven stars worshipped me.
10 Joseph also told it to his father Jacob, who said,
Am I, your mother, and your brothers supposed to worship you?
11 Joseph's brothers envied him, but Jacob thought the dream might come true.
Joseph's brothers get rid of Joseph
12 One day, Joseph's brothers went to Shechem to feed the flocks. 13 Jacob told Joseph to go see what his brothers were doing. 18-20 When Joseph's brothers saw him coming, they conspired to kill him, saying to one another,
Let's kill Joseph and throw his body in a pit. We'll say he was eaten by an evil beast.
Then we'll see what becomes of his dreams!
21-22 But Reuben had another idea. He said, "Let's not kill him. Let's just throw him in a pit."
23 So they stripped Joseph of his fancy coat and threw him into a pit.
25-28 Later, some Midianites (or Ishmaelites, or both) passed by. They sold Joseph to them for twenty pieces of silver. Then brought Joseph to Egypt.
31-32 The brothers killed a goat, put its blood on Joseph's multi-colored coat, brought the coat to their father, and said to him, "Look what we found. We don't know if it's Joseph's coat."
It's my son's coat. An evil beast ate him. There is no doubt that Joseph was torn into pieces.
34 And Jacob tore his clothes and put sackcloth upon his loins.
36 The Midianites sold Joseph to Potiphar, an officer of the Pharaoh.
A few more words about this episode
Don't be afraid. You will have a son. (35:17)
In the Bible, a woman is expected to die happily as long as she has a son.
Isaac died at the age of 180. (35:28)
Remember back in chapter 27, when Rebekah and Jacob conspire to rob Esau of the blessing of his dying father? Yeah, well, that was when Isaac was 100 years old - 80 years before he finally dies here in chapter 35.
Esau the father of the Edomites (37:8-9)
The Bible always finds a way to demonize entire groups of people. Here the Edomites (a group of people that David slaughtered) are said to be the descendants of Esau, whom God hates (Mal 1:3, Rom 9:13).
Jacob loved Joseph more than his other children (37:3)
