ADVERSITY Ten against one. Genesis 37
2Joseph, being seventeen years old, was feeding the flockwith his brothers. The lad was with the sons of Bilhah andthe sons of Zilpah, his father's wives; and Joseph brought abad report of them to his father. 3 Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age. Also he made Joseph a tunic of many colors. 4When his brothers saw that their father loved him more than all his brothers, they hated him and could not speak peaceably to him. 5Now Joseph had a dream and told it to his brothers; and they hated him even more. 6He said, "Please hear this dream I have dreamed: 7There we were, binding sheaves in the field. Then behold, my sheaf arose and stood upright; and indeed your sheaves stood all around and bowed down to my sheaf." 13 Israel said to Joseph, "Are not your brothers feeding the flock in Shechem? Come, I will send you to them." 18When they saw him afar off, even before he came near, they conspired to kill him. 19They said to one another, "Look, this dreamer is coming! Come therefore, let us kill him and cast him into some pit; and we shall say, 'Some wild beast has devoured him.' We shall see what will become of his dreams!" 21But Reuben heard it, and said, "Let us not kill him. 22Shed no blood, but cast him into this pit which is in the wilderness, and do not lay a hand on him"--that he might deliver him out of their hands, and bring him back to his father. 23So it came to pass, when Joseph had come to his brothers, that they stripped Joseph of his tunic of many colors. 24They took him and cast him into a pit. The pit was empty; there was no water in it. 25And they sat down to eat a meal. Then they lifted their eyes and looked, and there was a company of Ishmaelites, coming from Gilead with their camels, bearing spices, balm and myrrh, on their way down to Egypt. 26So Judah said to his brothers, "What profit is there if we kill our brother and conceal his blood? 27Come and let us sell him to the Ishmaelites, and let not our hand be upon him, for he is our brother and our flesh." His brothers listened and 28pulled Joseph up, lifted him out of the pit, and sold him to the Ishmaelites for twenty shekels of silver. And they took Joseph to Egypt.
