Jacob had 12 sons and
Joseph was his favorite. Jacob
gave Joseph a very special
coat to show how much he
loved him. This made Joseph's
brothers jealous. One day
Jacob sent Joseph to the field
to check on his brothers. He
said to them, “Listen to this
dream I had: 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.”His brothers said to him,
“Do you intend to reign over
us? Will you actually rule us?”
And they hated him all the
more because of his dream
and what he had said. Then he
had another dream, and he
told it to his brothers. “Listen,”
he said, “I had another dream,
and this time the sun and
moon and eleven stars were
bowing down to me.”When he
told his father as well as his
brothers, his father rebuked
him and said, “What is this
dream you had? Will your
mother and I and your brothers
actually come and bow down to
the ground before you?”
They were still angry about his beautiful coat, so they threw Joseph into an
empty well. Then they dipped his special coat in goat's blood and took it to
their father, Jacob. He thought Joseph had been killed by a wild animal. His
sons did not tell him they had sold Joseph to some traders going to Egypt.
Now 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. Now Joseph was well-built and
handsome, and after a while his master’s wife took notice of Joseph and
said, “Come to bed with me!” But he refused. “With me in charge,” he told
her, “my master does not concern himself with anything in the house;
everything he owns he has entrusted to my care. No one is greater in this
house than I am. My master has withheld nothing from me except you,
because you are his wife.
One day he went into the house to attend to his
duties, and none of the household servants was
inside. She caught him by his cloak and said, “Come
to bed with me!” But he left his cloak in her hand and
ran out of the house. When his master heard the
story his wife told him, saying, “This is how your slave
treated me,” he burned with anger. Joseph’s master
took him and put him in prison, the place where the
king’s prisoners were confined. But while Joseph was
there in the prison, the Lord was with him; he showed
him kindness and granted him favor in the eyes of
the prison warden. the king (called Pharaoh) had two
dreams. He dreamed about seven fat cows and
seven skinny cows that came up out of the river. The
skinny cows ate the fat cows, but they were no bigger
than before. Then he dreamed about seven full
heads of grain on one stalk and seven thin, scrawny
heads of grain. The thin heads ate the full heads. No
one could explain the king's dream, but God helped
Joseph to understand the meaning of the dreams.
Joseph told the king, "There will be seven years of
good crops. Then there will be seven years of bad
crops and hunger." Joseph told Pharaoh that he
should choose a wise person to oversee the people
and save food for the years of famine, or bad years
when there would be no rain. Pharaoh chose the
wisest man he knew. He gave the job to Joseph!
