Genesis 36

1
These are the descendants of Esau (that is, Edom).
2
Esau took his wives from the Canaanites: Adah the daughter of Elon the Hittite, Oholiba'mah the daughter of Anah the son of Zib'eon the Hivite,
3
and Bas'emath, Ish'mael's daughter, the sister of Neba'ioth.
4
And Adah bore to Esau, El'iphaz; Bas'emath bore Reu'el;
5
and Oholiba'mah bore Je'ush, Jalam, and Korah. These are the sons of Esau who were born to him in the land of Canaan.
6
Then Esau took his wives, his sons, his daughters, and all the members of his household, his cattle, all his beasts, and all his property which he had acquired in the land of Canaan; and he went into a land away from his brother Jacob.
7
For their possessions were too great for them to dwell together; the land of their sojournings could not support them because of their cattle.
8
So Esau dwelt in the hill country of Se'ir; Esau is Edom.
9
These are the descendants of Esau the father of the E'domites in the hill country of Se'ir.
10
These are the names of Esau's sons: El'iphaz the son of Adah the wife of Esau, Reu'el the son of Bas'emath the wife of Esau.
11
The sons of El'iphaz were Teman, Omar, Zepho, Gatam, and Kenaz.
12
(Timna was a concubine of El'iphaz, Esau's son; she bore Am'alek to El'iphaz.) These are the sons of Adah, Esau's wife.
13
These are the sons of Reu'el: Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah. These are the sons of Bas'emath, Esau's wife.
14
These are the sons of Oholiba'mah the daughter of Anah the son of Zib'eon, Esau's wife: she bore to Esau Je'ush, Jalam, and Korah.
15
These are the chiefs of the sons of Esau. The sons of El'iphaz the first-born of Esau: the chiefs Teman, Omar, Zepho, Kenaz,
16
Korah, Gatam, and Am'alek; these are the chiefs of El'iphaz in the land of Edom; they are the sons of Adah.
17
These are the sons of Reu'el, Esau's son: the chiefs Nahath, Zerah, Shammah, and Mizzah; these are the chiefs of Reu'el in the land of Edom; they are the sons of Bas'emath, Esau's wife.
18
These are the sons of Oholiba'mah, Esau's wife: the chiefs Je'ush, Jalam, and Korah; these are the chiefs born of Oholiba'mah the daughter of Anah, Esau's wife.
19
These are the sons of Esau (that is, Edom), and these are their chiefs.
20
These are the sons of Se'ir the Horite, the inhabitants of the land: Lotan, Shobal, Zib'eon, Anah,
21
Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan; these are the chiefs of the Horites, the sons of Se'ir in the land of Edom.
22
The sons of Lotan were Hori and Heman; and Lotan's sister was Timna.
23
These are the sons of Shobal: Alvan, Man'ahath, Ebal, Shepho, and Onam.
24
These are the sons of Zib'eon: A'iah and Anah; he is the Anah who found the hot springs in the wilderness, as he pastured the asses of Zib'eon his father.
25
These are the children of Anah: Dishon and Oholiba'mah the daughter of Anah.
26
These are the sons of Dishon: Hemdan, Eshban, Ithran, and Cheran.
27
These are the sons of Ezer: Bilhan, Za'avan, and Akan.
28
These are the sons of Dishan: Uz and Aran.
29
These are the chiefs of the Horites: the chiefs Lotan, Shobal, Zib'eon, Anah,
30
Dishon, Ezer, and Dishan; these are the chiefs of the Horites, according to their clans in the land of Se'ir.
31
These are the kings who reigned in the land of Edom, before any king reigned over the Israelites.
32
Bela the son of Be'or reigned in Edom, the name of his city being Din'habah.
33
Bela died, and Jobab the son of Zerah of Bozrah reigned in his stead.
34
Jobab died, and Husham of the land of the Te'manites reigned in his stead.
35
Husham died, and Hadad the son of Bedad, who defeated Mid'ian in the country of Moab, reigned in his stead, the name of his city being Avith.
36
Hadad died, and Samlah of Masre'kah reigned in his stead.
37
Samlah died, and Shaul of Reho'both on the Euphra'tes reigned in his stead.
38

39

41
Oholiba'mah, Elah, Pinon,
42
Kenaz, Teman, Mibzar,
43
Mag'diel, and Iram; these are the chiefs of Edom (that is, Esau, the father of Edom), according to their dwelling places in the land of their possession.


Genesis 37

1
Jacob dwelt in the land of his father's sojournings, in the land of Canaan.
2
This is the history of the family of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years old, was shepherding the flock with his brothers; he was a lad with the sons of Bilhah and Zilpah, his father's wives; and Joseph brought an ill report of them to their father.
3
Now Israel loved Joseph more than any other of his children, because he was the son of his old age; and he made him a long robe with sleeves.
4
But when his brothers saw that their father loved him more than all his brothers, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably to him.
5
Now Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers they only hated him the more.
6
He said to them, "Hear this dream which I have dreamed:
7
behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and lo, my sheaf arose and stood upright; and behold, your sheaves gathered round it, and bowed down to my sheaf."
8
His brothers said to him, "Are you indeed to reign over us? Or are you indeed to have dominion over us?" So they hated him yet more for his dreams and for his words.
9
Then he dreamed another dream, and told it to his brothers, and said, "Behold, I have dreamed another dream; and behold, the sun, the moon, and eleven stars were bowing down to me."
10
But when he told it to his father and to his brothers, his father rebuked him, and said to him, "What is this dream that you have dreamed? Shall I and your mother and your brothers indeed come to bow ourselves to the ground before you?"
11
And his brothers were jealous of him, but his father kept the saying in mind.
12
Now his brothers went to pasture their father's flock near Shechem.
13
And Israel said to Joseph, "Are not your brothers pasturing the flock at Shechem? Come, I will send you to them." And he said to him, "Here I am."
14
So he said to him, "Go now, see if it is well with your brothers, and with the flock; and bring me word again." So he sent him from the valley of Hebron, and he came to Shechem.
15
And a man found him wandering in the fields; and the man asked him, "What are you seeking?"
16
"I am seeking my brothers," he said, "tell me, I pray you, where they are pasturing the flock."
17
And the man said, "They have gone away, for I heard them say, 'Let us go to Dothan.'" So Joseph went after his brothers, and found them at Dothan.
18
They saw him afar off, and before he came near to them they conspired against him to kill him.
19
They said to one another, "Here comes this dreamer.
20
Come now, let us kill him and throw him into one of the pits; then we shall say that a wild beast has devoured him, and we shall see what will become of his dreams."
21
But when Reuben heard it, he delivered him out of their hands, saying, "Let us not take his life."
22
And Reuben said to them, "Shed no blood; cast him into this pit here in the wilderness, but lay no hand upon him" --that he might rescue him out of their hand, to restore him to his father.
23
So when Joseph came to his brothers, they stripped him of his robe, the long robe with sleeves that he wore;
24
and they took him and cast him into a pit. The pit was empty, there was no water in it.
25
Then they sat down to eat; and looking up they saw a caravan of Ish'maelites coming from Gilead, with their camels bearing gum, balm, and myrrh, on their way to carry it down to Egypt.
26
Then Judah said to his brothers, "What profit is it if we slay our brother and conceal his blood?
27
Come, let us sell him to the Ish'maelites, and let not our hand be upon him, for he is our brother, our own flesh." And his brothers heeded him.
28
Then Mid'ianite traders passed by; and they drew Joseph up and lifted him out of the pit, and sold him to the Ish'maelites for twenty shekels of silver; and they took Joseph to Egypt.
29
When Reuben returned to the pit and saw that Joseph was not in the pit, he rent his clothes
30
and returned to his brothers, and said, "The lad is gone; and I, where shall I go?"
31
Then they took Joseph's robe, and killed a goat, and dipped the robe in the blood;
32
and they sent the long robe with sleeves and brought it to their father, and said, "This we have found; see now whether it is your son's robe or not."
33
And he recognized it, and said, "It is my son's robe; a wild beast has devoured him; Joseph is without doubt torn to pieces."
34
Then Jacob rent his garments, and put sackcloth upon his loins, and mourned for his son many days.
35
All his sons and all his daughters rose up to comfort him; but he refused to be comforted, and said, "No, I shall go down to Sheol to my son, mourning." Thus his father wept for him.
36
Meanwhile the Mid'ianites had sold him in Egypt to Pot'i-phar, an officer of Pharaoh, the captain of the guard.


Genesis 38

1
It happened at that time that Judah went down from his brothers, and turned in to a certain Adullamite, whose name was Hirah.
2
There Judah saw the daughter of a certain Canaanite whose name was Shua; he married her and went in to her,
3
and she conceived and bore a son, and he called his name Er.
4
Again she conceived and bore a son, and she called his name Onan.
5
Yet again she bore a son, and she called his name Shelah. She was in Chezib when she bore him.
6
And Judah took a wife for Er his first-born, and her name was Tamar.
7
But Er, Judah's first-born, was wicked in the sight of the LORD; and the LORD slew him.
8
Then Judah said to Onan, "Go in to your brother's wife, and perform the duty of a brother-in-law to her, and raise up offspring for your brother."
9
But Onan knew that the offspring would not be his; so when he went in to his brother's wife he spilled the semen on the ground, lest he should give offspring to his brother.
10
And what he did was displeasing in the sight of the LORD, and he slew him also.
11
Then Judah said to Tamar his daughter-in-law, "Remain a widow in your father's house, till Shelah my son grows up" --for he feared that he would die, like his brothers. So Tamar went and dwelt in her father's house.
12
In course of time the wife of Judah, Shua's daughter, died; and when Judah was comforted, he went up to Timnah to his sheepshearers, he and his friend Hirah the Adullamite.
13
And when Tamar was told, "Your father-in-law is going up to Timnah to shear his sheep,"
14
she put off her widow's garments, and put on a veil, wrapping herself up, and sat at the entrance to Enaim, which is on the road to Timnah; for she saw that Shelah was grown up, and she had not been given to him in marriage.
15
When Judah saw her, he thought her to be a harlot, for she had covered her face.
16
He went over to her at the road side, and said, "Come, let me come in to you," for he did not know that she was his daughter-in-law. She said, "What will you give me, that you may come in to me?"
17
He answered, "I will send you a kid from the flock." And she said, "Will you give me a pledge, till you send it?"
18
He said, "What pledge shall I give you?" She replied, "Your signet and your cord, and your staff that is in your hand." So he gave them to her, and went in to her, and she conceived by him.
19
Then she arose and went away, and taking off her veil she put on the garments of her widowhood.
20
When Judah sent the kid by his friend the Adullamite, to receive the pledge from the woman's hand, he could not find her.
21
And he asked the men of the place, "Where is the harlot who was at Enaim by the wayside?" And they said, "No harlot has been here."
22
So he returned to Judah, and said, "I have not found her; and also the men of the place said, 'No harlot has been here.'"
23
And Judah replied, "Let her keep the things as her own, lest we be laughed at; you see, I sent this kid, and you could not find her."
24
About three months later Judah was told, "Tamar your daughter-in-law has played the harlot; and moreover she is with child by harlotry." And Judah said, "Bring her out, and let her be burned."
25
As she was being brought out, she sent word to her father-in-law, "By the man to whom these belong, I am with child." And she said, "Mark, I pray you, whose these are, the signet and the cord and the staff."
26
Then Judah acknowledged them and said, "She is more righteous than I, inasmuch as I did not give her to my son Shelah." And he did not lie with her again.
27
When the time of her delivery came, there were twins in her womb.
28
And when she was in labor, one put out a hand; and the midwife took and bound on his hand a scarlet thread, saying, "This came out first."
29
But as he drew back his hand, behold, his brother came out; and she said, "What a breach you have made for yourself!" Therefore his name was called Perez.
30
Afterward his brother came out with the scarlet thread upon his hand; and his name was called Zerah.


Genesis 39

1
Now Joseph was taken down to Egypt, and Pot'i-phar, an officer of Pharaoh, the captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him from the Ish'maelites who had brought him down there.
2
The LORD was with Joseph, and he became a successful man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian,
3
and his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD caused all that he did to prosper in his hands.
4
So Joseph found favor in his sight and attended him, and he made him overseer of his house and put him in charge of all that he had.
5
From the time that he made him overseer in his house and over all that he had the LORD blessed the Egyptian's house for Joseph's sake; the blessing of the LORD was upon all that he had, in house and field.
6
So he left all that he had in Joseph's charge; and having him he had no concern for anything but the food which he ate. Now Joseph was handsome and good-looking.
7
And after a time his master's wife cast her eyes upon Joseph, and said, "Lie with me."
8
But he refused and said to his master's wife, "Lo, having me my master has no concern about anything in the house, and he has put everything that he has in my hand;
9
he is not greater in this house than I am; nor has he kept back anything from me except yourself, because you are his wife; how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?"
10
And although she spoke to Joseph day after day, he would not listen to her, to lie with her or to be with her.
11
But one day, when he went into the house to do his work and none of the men of the house was there in the house,
12
she caught him by his garment, saying, "Lie with me." But he left his garment in her hand, and fled and got out of the house.
13
And when she saw that he had left his garment in her hand, and had fled out of the house,
14
she called to the men of her household and said to them, "See, he has brought among us a Hebrew to insult us; he came in to me to lie with me, and I cried out with a loud voice;
15
and when he heard that I lifted up my voice and cried, he left his garment with me, and fled and got out of the house."
16
Then she laid up his garment by her until his master came home,
17
and she told him the same story, saying, "The Hebrew servant, whom you have brought among us, came in to me to insult me;
18
but as soon as I lifted up my voice and cried, he left his garment with me, and fled out of the house."
19
When his master heard the words which his wife spoke to him, "This is the way your servant treated me," his anger was kindled.
20
And Joseph's master took him and put him into the prison, the place where the king's prisoners were confined, and he was there in prison.
21
But the LORD was with Joseph and showed him steadfast love, and gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.
22
And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph's care all the prisoners who were in the prison; and whatever was done there, he was the doer of it;
23
the keeper of the prison paid no heed to anything that was in Joseph's care, because the LORD was with him; and whatever he did, the LORD made it prosper.
