10 And his father rebuked him, and said to him, What is this dream which thou hast dreamed? shall indeed both I and thy mother and thy brethren come and bow before thee to the earth? 11 And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying. 12 And his brethren went to feed the sheep of their father to Sychem. 13 And Israel said to Joseph, Do not thy brethren feed their flock in Sychem? Come, I will send thee to them; and he said to him, Behold, I [am here]. 14 And Israel said to him, Go and see if thy brethren and the sheep are well, and bring me word; and he sent him out of the valley of Chebron, and he came to Sychem. 15 And a man found him wandering in the field; and the man asked him, saying, What seekest thou? 16 And he said, I am seeking my brethren; tell me where they feed [their flocks]. 17 And the man said to him, They have departed hence, for I heard them saying, Let us go to Dothaim; and Joseph went after his brethren, and found them in Dothaim. 18 And they spied him from a distance before he drew nigh to them, and they wickedly took counsel to slay him. 19 And each said to his brother, Behold, that dreamer comes. 20 Now then come, let us kill him, and cast him into one of the pits; and we will say, An evil wild beast has devoured him; and we shall see what his dreams will be.

10 καὶ ἐπετίμησεν αὐτῷ ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· τί τὸ ἐνύπνιον τοῦτο, ὃ ἐνυπνιάσθης; ἆρά γε ἐλθόντες ἐλευσόμεθα ἐγώ τε καὶ ἡ μήτηρ σου καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοί σου προσκυνῆσαί σοι ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν; 11 ἐζήλωσαν δὲ αὐτὸν οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ, ὁ δὲ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ διετήρησε τὸ ρῆμα. 12 ᾿Επορεύθησαν δὲ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ βόσκειν τὰ πρόβατα τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῶν εἰς Συχέμ. 13 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Ισραὴλ πρὸς ᾿Ιωσήφ· οὐχὶ οἱ ἀδελφοί σου ποιμαίνουσιν εἰς Συχέμ; δεῦρο ἀποστείλω σε πρὸς αὐτούς. εἶπε δὲ αὐτῷ· ἰδοὺ ἐγώ. 14 εἶπε δὲ αὐτῷ ᾿Ισραήλ· πορευθεὶς ἰδέ, εἰ ὑγιαίνουσιν οἱ ἀδελφοί σου καὶ τὰ πρόβατα, καὶ ἀνάγγειλόν μοι. καὶ ἀπέστειλεν αὐτὸν ἐκ τῆς κοιλάδος τῆς Χεβρών, καὶ ἦλθεν εἰς Συχέμ. 15 καὶ εὗρεν αὐτὸν ἄνθρωπος πλανώμενον ἐν τῷ πεδίῳ· ἠρώτησε δὲ αὐτὸν ὁ ἄνθρωπος λέγων· τί ζητεῖς; 16 ὁ δὲ εἶπε· τοὺς ἀδελφούς μου ζητῶ· ἀπάγγειλόν μοι, ποῦ βόσκουσιν. 17 εἶπε δὲ αὐτῷ ὁ ἄνθρωπος· ἀπῄρκασιν ἐντεῦθεν, ἤκουσα γὰρ αὐτῶν λεγόντων· πορευθῶμεν εἰς Δωθαείμ. καὶ ἐπορεύθη ᾿Ιωσὴφ κατόπισθεν τῶν ἀδελφῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ εὗρεν αὐτοὺς ἐν Δωθαείμ. 18 προεῖδον δὲ αὐτὸν μακρόθεν πρὸ τοῦ ἐγγίσαι αὐτὸν πρὸς αὐτοὺς καὶ ἐπονηρεύοντο τοῦ ἀποκτεῖναι αὐτόν. 19 εἶπε δὲ ἕκαστος πρὸς τὸν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ· ἰδοὺ ὁ ἐνυπνιαστὴς ἐκεῖνος ἔρχεται· 20 νῦν οὖν δεῦτε ἀποκτείνωμεν αὐτὸν καὶ ρίψωμεν αὐτὸν εἰς ἕνα τῶν λάκκων καὶ ἐροῦμεν· θηρίον πονηρὸν κατέφαγεν αὐτόν· καὶ ὀψόμεθα, τί ἔσται τὰ ἐνύπνια αὐτοῦ.
