View In My Bible
29 When Reuben returned to the cistern and saw that Joseph was not there, he tore his clothes.1 30 He went back to his brothers and said, "The boy isn't there! Where can I turn now?"2 31 Then they got Joseph's robe,3 slaughtered a goat and dipped the robe in the blood.4 32 They took the ornamented robe5 back to their father and said, "We found this. Examine it to see whether it is your son's robe." 33 He recognized it and said, "It is my son's robe! Some ferocious animal6 has devoured him. Joseph has surely been torn to pieces."7 34 Then Jacob tore his clothes,8 put on sackcloth9 and mourned for his son many days.10 35 All his sons and daughters came to comfort him,11 but he refused to be comforted.12 "No," he said, "in mourning will I go down to the gravea13 to my son.14" So his father wept for him. 36 Meanwhile, the Midianitesb15 sold Joseph16 in Egypt to Potiphar, one of Pharaoh's officials, the captain of the guard.17
