Genesis 37

1 Jacob lived in

the land where his father had stayed,

the land of Canaan.


2 This is the account of Jacob’s family line.



5 Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him all the more.


6He said to them, “Listen to this dream I had…”


Dream 1
Dream #1

“We were binding sheaves of grain out in the field when suddenly my sheaf rose and stood upright, while your sheaves gathered around mine and bowed down to it.”


Dream 2

14 … “Go and see if all is well with your brothers and with the flocks, and bring word back to me.”


18 But they saw him in the distance, and … plotted to kill him. 19“Here comes that dreamer... 20Come now, let’s kill him … Then we’ll see what comes of his dreams.”


1Now Joseph had been taken down to Egypt. Potiphar, an Egyptian who was one of Pharaoh’s officials, the captain of the guard, bought him from the Ishmaelites who had taken him there.

20Joseph’s master took him and put him in prison, the place where the king’s prisoners were confined.


20But while Joseph was there in the prison, 21the Lord was with him; he showed him kindness and granted him favor in the eyes of the prison warden.


22So the warden put Joseph in charge of all those held in the prison, and he was made responsible for all that was done there. 23The warden paid no attention to anything under Joseph’s care, because the Lord was with Joseph and gave him success in whatever he did.

4After they had been in custody for some time, 5each of the two men … had a dream the same night, and each dream had a meaning of its own.


23The chief cupbearer, however, did not remember Joseph; he forgot him.


1When two full years had passed …


14 So Pharaoh sent for Joseph …


17 “Now please forgive the sins of the servants of the God of your father.”


18His brothers then came and threw themselves down before him. “We are your slaves,” they said.


19But Joseph said to them, “Don’t be afraid. Am I in the place of God? 20You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.
