ND Jacob dwelt in the land where his father sojourned, in the land of Chanaan. 2 And these are the generations of Jacob. And Joseph was seventeen years old, feeding the sheep of his father with his brethren, being young; with the sons of Balla, and with the sons of Zelpha, the wives of his father; and Joseph brought to Israel their father their evil reproach. 3 And Jacob loved Joseph more than all his sons, because he was to him the son of old age; and he made for him a coat of many colours. 4 And his brethren having seen that his father loved him more than all his sons, hated him, and could not speak anything peaceable to him. 5 And Joseph dreamed a dream, and reported it to his brethren. 6 And he said to them, Hear this dream which I have dreamed. 7 I thought ye were binding sheaves in the middle of the field, and my sheaf stood up and was erected, and your sheaves turned round, and did obeisance to my sheaf. 8 And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us, or shalt thou indeed be lord over us? And they hated him still more for his dreams and for his words. 9 And he dreamed another dream, and related it to his father, and to his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed another dream: as it were the sun, and the moon, and the eleven stars did me reverence.

ΚΑΤῼΚΕΙ δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἐν τῇ γῇ, οὗ παρώκησεν ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ, ἐν γῇ Χαναάν. 2 αὗται δὲ αἱ γενέσεις ᾿Ιακώβ· ᾿Ιωσὴφ δὲ δέκα καὶ ἑπτὰ ἐτῶν ἦν, ποιμαίνων τὰ πρόβατα τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ μετὰ τῶν ἀδελφῶν αὐτοῦ, ὢν νέος, μετὰ τῶν υἱῶν Βαλλᾶς καὶ μετὰ τῶν υἱῶν Ζελφᾶς τῶν γυναικῶν τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ· κατήνεγκαν δὲ ᾿Ιωσὴφ ψόγον πονηρὸν πρὸς ᾿Ισραὴλ τὸν πατέρα αὐτῶν. 3 ᾿Ιακὼβ δέ ἠγάπα τὸν ᾿Ιωσὴφ παρὰ πάντας τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτοῦ, ὅτι υἱὸς γήρως ἦν αὐτῷ· ἐποίησε δὲ αὐτῷ χιτῶνα ποικίλον. 4 ἰδόντες δὲ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ, ὅτι αὐτὸν ὁ πατὴρ φιλεῖ ἐκ πάντων τῶν υἱῶν αὐτοῦ, ἐμίσησαν αὐτὸν καὶ οὐκ ἠδύναντο λαλεῖν αὐτῷ οὐδὲν εἰρηνικόν. 5 ᾿Ενυπνιασθεὶς δὲ ᾿Ιωσὴφ ἐνύπνιον ἀπήγγειλεν αὐτὸ τοῖς ἀδελφοῖς αὐτοῦ. 6 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς· ἀκούσατε τοῦ ἐνυπνίου τούτου, οὗ ἐνυπνιάσθην· 7 ᾤμην ὑμᾶς δεσμεύειν δράγματα ἐν μέσῳ τῷ πεδίῳ, καὶ ἀνέστη τὸ ἐμὸν δράγμα καὶ ὠρθώθη, περιστραφέντα δὲ τὰ δράγματα ὑμῶν προσεκύνησαν τὸ ἐμὸν δράγμα. 8 εἶπαν δὲ αὐτῷ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ· μὴ βασιλεύων βασιλεύσεις ἐφ᾿ ἡμᾶς ἢ κυριεύων κυριεύσεις ἡμῶν; καὶ προσέθεντο ἔτι μισεῖν αὐτὸν ἕνεκεν τῶν ἐνυπνίων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἕνεκεν τῶν ρημάτων αὐτοῦ. 9 εἶδε δὲ ἐνύπνιον ἕτερον καὶ διηγήσατο αὐτῷ τῷ πατρὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ τοῖς ἀδελφοῖς αὐτοῦ, καὶ εἶπεν· ἰδοὺ ἐνυπνιασάμην ἐνύπνιον ἕτερον, ὥσπερ ὁ ἥλιος καὶ ἡ σελήνη καὶ ἕνδεκα ἀστέρες προσεκύνουν με.
