2 This is the accountu of Jacob’s family line.
3 Now Israelb loved Joseph more than any of his other sons,c because he had been born to him in his old age;d and he made an ornatea robee for him.f 4 When his brothers saw that their father loved him more than any of them, they hated himg and could not speak a kind word to him.
5 Joseph had a dream,h and when he told it to his brothers,i they hated him all the more.j 6 He said to them, “Listen to this dream I had: 7 We were binding sheavesk 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.”l
10 When he told his father as well as his brothers,r his father rebukeds 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?”t 11 His brothers were jealous of him,u but his father kept the matter in mind.v
