Joseph, a young man of seventeen, was tending the flocks with his brothers, the sons of Bilhah and the sons of Zilpah, his father’s wives, and he brought their father a bad report about them.

NIV 3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than any of his other sons, because he had been born to him in his old age; and he made an ornate robe for him.

NIV 7 We were binding sheaves of grain out in the field when suddenly my sheaf rose and stood upright, while your sheaves gathered around mine and bowed down to it.” CEBA 8 His brothers said to him, "Will you really be our king and rule over us?"

Will you actually rule us?” And they hated him all the more because of his dream and what he had said.

Am I and your mother and your brothers supposed to come and bow down to the ground in front of you?" NIV 10 When he told his father as well as his brothers, his father rebuked him and said, “What is this dream you had? Will your mother and I and your brothers actually come and bow down to the ground before you?” CEBA 11 His brothers were jealous of him, but his father took careful note of the matter.
