Come now therefore, and let us slay him
Agree to do it, and actually do it:
and cast him into some pit;
or, "one of the pits" F19, which were near, and were dug for the collection of rainwater, as was usual in those countries where water was scarce:
and we shall see what will become of his dreams;
who will be the lord then, and reign, and have the dominion, he or we.
