GENESIS CHAPTERS 31-40
ΗΚΟΥΣΕ δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ τὰ ρήματα τῶν υἱῶν Λάβαν λεγόντων· εἴληφεν ᾿Ιακὼβ πάντα τὰ τοῦ πατρὸς ἡμῶν καὶ ἐκ τῶν τοῦ πατρὸς ἡμῶν πεποίηκε πᾶσαν τὴν δόξαν ταύτην.
2 καὶ εἶδεν ᾿Ιακὼβ τὸ πρόσωπον τοῦ Λάβαν, καὶ ἰδοὺ οὐκ ἦν πρὸς αὐτὸν ὡσεὶ ἐχθὲς καὶ τρίτην ἡμέραν.
3 εἶπε δὲ Κύριος πρὸς ᾿Ιακώβ· ἀποστρέφου εἰς τὴν γῆν τοῦ πατρός σου καὶ εἰς τὴν γενεάν σου, καὶ ἔσομαι μετὰ σοῦ.
4 ἀποστείλας δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἐκάλεσε Λείαν καὶ Ραχὴλ εἰς τὸ πεδίον, οὗ ἦν τὰ ποίμνια.
5 καὶ εἶπεν αὐταῖς· ὁρῶ ἐγὼ τὸ πρόσωπον τοῦ πατρὸς ὑμῶν, ὅτι οὐκ ἔστι πρὸς ἐμοῦ ὡς ἐχθὲς καὶ τρίτην ἡμέραν· ὁ δὲ Θεὸς τοῦ πατρός μου ἦν μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ.
6 καὶ αὐταὶ δὲ οἴδατε, ὅτι ἐν πάσῃ τῇ ἰσχύϊ μου δεδούλευκα τῷ πατρὶ ὑμῶν.
7 ὁ δὲ πατὴρ ὑμῶν παρεκρούσατό με καὶ ἤλλαξε τὸν μισθόν μου τῶν δέκα ἀμνῶν, καὶ οὐκ ἔδωκεν αὐτῷ ὁ Θεὸς κακοποιῆσαί με.
8 ἐὰν οὕτως εἴπῃ, τὰ ποικίλα ἔσται σου μισθός, καὶ τέξεται πάντα τὰ πρόβατα ποικίλα· ἐὰν δὲ εἴπῃ, τὰ λευκὰ ἔσται σου μισθός, καὶ τέξεται πάντα τὰ πρόβατα λευκά·
9 καὶ ἀφείλετο ὁ Θεὸς πάντα τὰ κτήνη τοῦ πατρὸς ὑμῶν καὶ ἔδωκέ μοι αὐτά.
10 καὶ ἐγένετο ἡνίκα ἐνεκίσσων τὰ πρόβατα ἐν γαστρὶ λαμβάνοντα, καὶ εἶδον τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς μου ἐν τῷ ὕπνῳ, καὶ ἰδοὺ οἱ τράγοι καὶ οἱ κριοὶ ἀναβαίνοντες ἐπὶ τὰ πρόβατα καὶ τὰς αἶγας διάλευκοι καὶ ποικίλοι καὶ σποδοειδεῖς ραντοί.
11 καὶ εἶπέ μοι ὁ ἄγγελος τοῦ Θεοῦ καθ᾿ ὕπνον· ᾿Ιακώβ· ἐγὼ δὲ εἶπα· τί ἐστι;
12 καὶ εἶπεν· ἀνάβλεψον τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς σου, καὶ ἰδὲ τοὺς τράγους καὶ τοὺς κριοὺς ἀναβαίνοντας ἐπὶ τὰ πρόβατα καὶ τὰς αἶγας διαλεύκους καὶ ποικίλους καὶ σποδοειδεῖς ραντούς· ἑώρακα γάρ ὅσα σοι Λάβαν ποιεῖ·
13 ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ Θεὸς ὁ ὀφθείς σοι ἐν τόπῳ Θεοῦ, οὗ ἤλειψάς μοι ἐκεῖ στήλην καὶ ηὔξω μοι ἐκεῖ εὐχήν· νῦν οὖν ἀνάστηθι καὶ ἔξελθε ἐκ τῆς γῆς ταύτης καὶ ἄπελθε εἰς τὴν γῆν τῆς γενέσεώς σου, καὶ ἔσομαι μετὰ σοῦ.
14 καὶ ἀποκριθεῖσαι Ραχὴλ καὶ Λεία εἶπαν αὐτῷ· μή ἐστιν ἡμῖν ἔτι μερὶς ἢ κληρονομία ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τοῦ πατρὸς ἡμῶν;
15 οὐχ ὡς αἱ ἀλλότριαι λελογίσμεθα αὐτῷ; πέπρακε γὰρ ἡμᾶς καὶ καταβρώσει κατέφαγε τὸ ἀργύριον ἡμῶν.
16 πάντα τὸν πλοῦτον καὶ τὴν δόξαν, ἣν ἀφείλετο ὁ Θεὸς τοῦ πατρὸς ἡμῶν, ἡμῖν ἔσται καὶ τοῖς τέκνοις ἡμῶν. νῦν οὖν ὅσα σοι εἴρηκεν ὁ Θεός, ποίει.
17 ᾿Αναστὰς δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἔλαβε τὰς γυναῖκας αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰ παιδία αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τὰς καμήλους.
18 καὶ ἀπήγαγε πάντα τὰ ὑπάρχοντα αὐτῷ, καὶ πᾶσαν τὴν ἀποσκευὴν αὐτοῦ, ἣν περιεποιήσατο ἐν τῇ Μεσοποταμίᾳ, καὶ πάντα τὰ αὐτοῦ ἀπελθεῖν πρὸς ᾿Ισαὰκ τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ εἰς γῆν Χαναάν.
19 Λάβαν δὲ ᾤχετο κεῖραι τὰ πρόβατα αὐτοῦ· ἔκλεψε δὲ Ραχὴλ τὰ εἴδωλα τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῆς.
20 ἔκρυψε δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ Λάβαν τὸν Σύρον τοῦ μὴ ἀναγγεῖλαι αὐτῷ, ὅτι ἀποδιδράσκει.
21 καὶ ἀπέδρα αὐτὸς καὶ τὰ αὐτοῦ πάντα καὶ διέβη τὸν ποταμὸν καὶ ὥρμησεν εἰς τὸ ὄρος Γαλαάδ.
22 ἀνηγγέλη δὲ Λάβαν τῷ Σύρῳ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ, ὅτι ἀπέδρα ᾿Ιακώβ,
23 καὶ παραλαβὼν τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτοῦ μεθ᾿ ἑαυτοῦ, ἐδίωξεν ὀπίσω αὐτοῦ ὁδὸν ἡμερῶν ἑπτὰ καὶ κατέλαβεν αὐτὸν ἐν τῷ ὄρει Γαλαάδ.
24 ἦλθε δὲ ὁ Θεὸς πρὸς Λάβαν τὸν Σύρον καθ᾿ ὕπνον τὴν νύκτα καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· φύλαξε σεαυτόν, μήποτε λαλήσῃς μετὰ ᾿Ιακὼβ πονηρά.
25 καὶ κατέλαβε Λάβαν τὸν ᾿Ιακώβ· ᾿Ιακὼβ δὲ ἔπηξε τὴν σκηνὴν αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ ὄρει· Λάβαν δὲ ἔστησε τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ ὄρει Γαλαάδ.
26 εἶπε δὲ Λάβαν τῷ ᾿Ιακώβ· τί ἐποίησας; ἱνατί κρυφῇ ἀπέδρας καὶ ἐκλοποφόρησάς με καὶ ἀπήγαγες τὰς θυγατέρας μου ὡς αἰχμαλώτιδας μαχαίρᾳ;
27 καὶ εἰ ἀνήγγειλάς μοι, ἐξαπέστειλα ἄν σε μετ᾿ εὐφροσύνης καὶ μετὰ μουσικῶν καὶ τυμπάνων καὶ κιθάρας,
28 καὶ οὐκ ἠξιώθην καταφιλῆσαι τὰ παιδία μου καὶ τὰς θυγατέρας μου. νῦν δὲ ἀφρόνως ἔπραξας.
29 καὶ νῦν ἰσχύει ἡ χείρ μου κακοποιῆσαί σε· ὁ δὲ Θεὸς τοῦ πατρός σου ἐχθὲς εἶπε πρός με λέγων· φύλαξε σεαυτόν, μή ποτε λαλήσῃς μετὰ ᾿Ιακὼβ πονηρά.
30 νῦν οὖν πεπόρευσαι· ἐπιθυμίᾳ γὰρ ἐπεθύμησας ἀπελθεῖν εἰς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ πατρός σου· ἱνατί ἔκλεψας τοὺς θεούς μου;
31 ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ εἶπε τῷ Λάβαν· ὅτι ἐφοβήθην· εἶπα γάρ· μή ποτε ἀφέλῃς τὰς θυγατέρας σου ἀπ᾿ ἐμοῦ καὶ πάντα τὰ ἐμά.
32 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Ιακώβ· παρ᾿ ᾧ ἂν εὕρῃς τοὺς θεούς σου, οὐ ζήσεται ἐναντίον τῶν ἀδελφῶν ἡμῶν· ἐπίγνωθι τί ἐστι παρ᾿ ἐμοὶ τῶν σῶν καὶ λαβέ. καὶ οὐκ ἐπέγνω παρ᾿ αὐτῷ οὐδέν. οὐκ ᾔδει δὲ ᾿Ιακώβ, ὅτι Ραχὴλ ἡ γυνὴ αὐτοῦ ἔκλεψεν αὐτούς.
33 εἰσελθὼν δὲ Λάβαν ἠρεύνησεν εἰς τὸν οἶκον Λείας καὶ οὐχ εὗρεν· καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ἐκ τοῦ οἴκου Λείας καὶ ἠρεύνησε τὸν οἶκον ᾿Ιακὼβ καὶ ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τῶν δύο παιδισκῶν καὶ οὐχ εὗρεν. εἰσῆλθε δὲ καὶ εἰς τὸν οἶκον Ραχήλ.
34 Ραχὴλ δὲ ἔλαβε τὰ εἴδωλα καὶ ἐνέβαλεν αὐτὰ εἰς τὰ σάγματα τῆς καμήλου καὶ ἐπεκάθισεν αὐτοῖς.
35 καὶ εἶπε τῷ πατρὶ αὐτῆς· μὴ βαρέως φέρε, κύριε· οὐ δύναμαι ἀναστῆναι ἐνώπιόν σου, ὅτι τὰ κατ᾿ ἐθισμὸν τῶν γυναικῶν μοι ἐστίν· ἠρεύνησε δὲ Λάβαν ἐν ὅλῳ τῷ οἴκῳ καὶ οὐχ εὗρε τὰ εἴδωλα.
36 ὠργίσθη δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ καὶ ἐμαχέσατο τῷ Λάβαν· ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ εἶπε τῷ Λάβαν· τί τὸ ἀδίκημά μου καὶ τί τὸ ἁμάρτημά μου, ὅτι κατεδίωξας ὀπίσω μου
37 καὶ ὅτι ἠρεύνησας πάντα τὰ σκεύη τοῦ οἴκου μου; τί εὗρες ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν σκευῶν τοῦ οἴκου σου; θές ὧδε ἐνώπιον τῶν ἀδελφῶν σου καὶ τῶν ἀδελφῶν μου, καὶ ἐλεγξάτωσαν ἀνὰ μέσον τῶν δύο ἡμῶν.
38 ταῦτά μοι εἴκοσιν ἔτη ἐγώ εἰμι μετὰ σοῦ· τὰ πρόβατά σου καὶ αἱ αἶγές σου οὐκ ἠτεκνώθησαν· κριοὺς τῶν προβάτων σου οὐ κατέφαγον·
39 θηριάλωτον οὐκ ἐνήνοχά σοι, ἐγὼ ἀπετίννυον παρ᾿ ἐμαυτοῦ κλέμματα ἡμέρας καὶ κλέμματα νυκτός·
40 ἐγενόμην τῆς ἡμέρας συγκαιόμενος τῷ καύματι καὶ τῷ παγετῷ τῆς νυκτός, καὶ ἀφίστατο ὁ ὕπνος μου ἀπὸ τῶν ὀφθαλμῶν μου.
41 ταῦτά μοι εἴκοσιν ἔτη ἐγώ εἰμι ἐν τῇ οἰκιίᾳ σου· ἐδούλευσά σοι δεκατέσσαρα ἔτη ἀντὶ τῶν δύο θυγατέρων σου καὶ ἓξ ἔτη ἐν τοῖς προβάτοις σου, καὶ παρελογίσω τὸν μισθόν μου δέκα ἀμνάσιν.
42 εἰ μὴ ὁ Θεὸς τοῦ πατρός μου ῾Αβραὰμ καὶ ὁ φόβος ᾿Ισαὰκ ἦν μοι, νῦν ἂν κενόν με ἐξαπέστειλας· τὴν ταπείνωσίν μου καὶ τὸν κόπον τῶν χειρῶν μου εἶδεν ὁ Θεὸς καὶ ἤλεγξέ σε ἐχθές.
43 ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ Λάβαν εἶπε τῷ ᾿Ιακώβ· αἱ θυγατέρες θυγατέρες μου, καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ υἱοί μου, καὶ τὰ κτήνη κτήνη μου, καὶ πάντα, ὅσα σὺ ὁρᾷς, ἐμά ἐστι καὶ τῶν θυγατέρων μου· τί ποιήσω ταύταις σήμερον ἢ τοῖς τέκνοις αὐτῶν, οἷς ἔτεκον;
44 νῦν οὖν δεῦρο διαθώμεθα διαθήκην ἐγώ τε καὶ σύ, καὶ ἔσται εἰς μαρτύριον ἀνὰ μέσον ἐμοῦ καὶ σοῦ, εἶπε δὲ αὐτῷ· ἰδοὺ οὐδεὶς μεθ᾿ ἡμῶν ἐστιν, ἰδέ, ὁ Θεὸς μάρτυς ἀνὰ μέσον ἐμοῦ καὶ σοῦ.
45 λαβὼν δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ λίθον ἔστησεν αὐτὸν στήλην.
46 εἶπε δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ τοῖς ἀδελφοῖς αὐτοῦ· συλλέγετε λίθους. καὶ συνέλεξαν λίθους καὶ ἐποίησαν βουνόν, καὶ ἔφαγον ἐκεῖ ἐπὶ τοῦ βουνοῦ.
47 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Λάβαν· ὁ βουνὸς οὗτος μαρτυρεῖ ἀνὰ μέσον ἐμοῦ καὶ σοῦ σήμερον.
48 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν αὐτὸν Λάβαν Βουνὸς τῆς μαρτυρίας. ᾿Ιακὼβ δὲ ἐκάλεσεν αὐτὸν Βουνὸς μάρτυς. εἶπε δὲ Λάβαν τῷ ᾿Ιακώβ· ἰδοὺ ὁ βουνὸς οὗτος καὶ ἡ στήλη, ἣν ἔστησα ἀνὰ μέσον ἐμοῦ καὶ σοῦ, μαρτυρεῖ ὁ βουνὸς οὗτος, καὶ μαρτυρεῖ ἡ στήλη αὕτη· διὰ τοῦτο ἐκλήθη τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ, Βουνὸς μαρτυρεῖ.
49 καὶ ἡ ῞Ορασις, ἣν εἶπεν· ἐπίδοι ὁ Θεὸς ἀνὰ μέσον ἐμοῦ καὶ σοῦ, ὅτι ἀποστησόμεθα ἕτερος ἀφ᾿ ἑτέρου.
50 εἰ ταπεινώσεις τὰς θυγατέρας μου, εἰ λήψῃ γυναῖκας πρὸς ταῖς θυγατράσι μου, ὅρα, οὐδεὶς μεθ᾿ ἡμῶν ἐστιν ὁρῶν· Θεὸς μάρτυς μεταξὺ ἐμοῦ καὶ μεταξὺ σοῦ.
51 καὶ εἶπε Λάβαν τῷ ᾿Ιακώβ· ἰδοὺ ὁ βουνὸς οὗτος καὶ μάρτυς ἡ στήλη αὕτη.
52 ἐὰν τε γὰρ ἐγὼ μὴ διαβῶ πρὸς σὲ μηδὲ σὺ διαβῇς πρός με τὸν βουνὸν τοῦτον καὶ τὴν στήλην ταύτην ἐπὶ κακίᾳ,
53 ὁ Θεὸς ῾Αβραὰμ καὶ ὁ Θεὸς Ναχὼρ κρινεῖ ἀνὰ μέσον ἡμῶν.
54 καὶ ὤμοσεν ᾿Ιακὼβ κατὰ τοῦ φόβου τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ᾿Ισαάκ, καὶ ἔθυσε θυσίαν ἐν τῷ ὄρει καὶ ἐκάλεσε τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἔφαγον καὶ ἔπιον καὶ ἐκοιμήθησαν ἐν τῷ ὄρει.
55 ἀναστὰς δὲ Λάβαν τὸ πρωΐ κατεφίλησε τοὺς υἱοὺς καὶ τὰς θυγατέρας αὐτοῦ καὶ εὐλόγησεν αὐτούς, καὶ ἀποστραφεὶς Λάβαν ἀπῆλθεν εἰς τὸν τόπον αὐτοῦ.
ΚΑΙ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἀπῆλθεν εἰς τὴν ὁδὸν ἑαυτοῦ. καὶ ἀναβλέψας εἶδε παρεμβολὴν Θεοῦ παρεμβεβληκυῖαν, καὶ συνήντησαν αὐτῷ οἱ ἄγγελοι τοῦ Θεοῦ.
2 εἶπε δὲ ᾿Ιακώβ, ἡνίκα εἶδεν αὐτούς· παρεμβολὴ Θεοῦ αὕτη· καὶ ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ τόπου ἐκείνου Παρεμβολαί.
3 ᾿Απέστειλε δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἀγγέλους ἔμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ πρὸς ῾Ησαῦ τὸν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ εἰς γῆν Σηείρ, εἰς χώραν ᾿Εδώμ.
4 καὶ ἐνετείλατο αὐτοῖς λέγων· οὕτως ἐρεῖτε τῷ κυρίῳ μου ῾Ησαῦ· οὕτως λέγει ὁ παῖς σου ᾿Ιακώβ· μετὰ Λάβαν παρῴκησα, καὶ ἐχρόνισα ἕως τοῦ νῦν,
5 καὶ ἐγένοντό μοι βόες καὶ ὄνοι καὶ πρόβατα καὶ παῖδες καὶ παιδίσκαι, καὶ ἀπέστειλα ἀναγγεῖλαι τῷ κυρίῳ μου ῾Ησαῦ, ἵνα εὕρῃ ὁ παῖς σου χάριν ἐναντίον σου.
6 καὶ ἀνέστρεψαν οἱ ἄγγελοι πρὸς ᾿Ιακὼβ λέγοντες· ἤλθομεν πρὸς τὸν ἀδελφόν σου ῾Ησαῦ, καὶ ἰδοὺ αὐτὸς ἔρχεται εἰς συνάντησίν σοι καὶ τετρακόσιοι ἄνδρες μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ.
7 ἐφοβήθη δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ σφόδρα, καὶ ἠπορεῖτο. καὶ διεῖλε τὸν λαὸν τὸν μεθ᾿ ἑαυτοῦ καὶ τοὺς βόας καὶ τὰς καμήλους καὶ τὰ πρόβατα εἰς δύο παρεμβολάς,
8 καὶ εἶπεν ᾿Ιακώβ· ἐὰν ἔλθῃ ῾Ησαῦ εἰς παρεμβολὴν μίαν καὶ κόψῃ αὐτήν, ἔσται ἡ παρεμβολὴ ἡ δευτέρα εἰς τὸ σώζεσθαι.
9 εἶπε δὲ ᾿Ιακώβ· ὁ Θεὸς τοῦ πατρός μου ῾Αβραὰμ καὶ ὁ Θεὸς τοῦ πατρός μου ᾿Ισαάκ, Κύριε σὺ ὁ εἰπών μοι, ἀπότρεχε εἰς τὴν γῆν τῆς γενέσεώς σου καὶ εὖ σε ποιήσω,
10 ἱκανούσθω μοι ἀπὸ πάσης δικαιοσύνης καὶ ἀπὸ πάσης ἀληθείας, ἧς ἐποίησας τῷ παιδί σου· ἐν γὰρ τῇ ῥάβδῳ μου ταύτῃ διέβην τὸν ᾿Ιορδάνην τοῦτον, νυνὶ δὲ γέγονα εἰς δύο παρεμβολάς.
11 ἐξελοῦ με ἐκ χειρὸς τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ μου, ἐκ χειρὸς ῾Ησαῦ, ὅτι φοβοῦμαι ἐγὼ αὐτόν, μή ποτε ἐλθὼν πατάξῃ με καὶ μητέρα ἐπὶ τέκνοις.
12 σὺ δὲ εἶπας· εὖ σε ποιήσω καὶ θήσω τὸ σπέρμα σου ὡς τὴν ἄμμον τῆς θαλάσσης, ἣ οὐκ ἀριθμηθήσεται ἀπὸ τοῦ πλήθους.
13 καὶ ἐκοιμήθη ἐκεῖ τὴν νύκτα ἐκείνην. καὶ ἔλαβεν ὧν ἔφερε δῶρα καὶ ἐξαπέστειλεν ῾Ησαῦ τῷ ἀδελφῷ αὐτοῦ,
14 αἶγας διακοσίας, τράγους εἴκοσι, πρόβατα διακόσια, κριοὺς εἴκοσι,
15 καμήλους θηλαζούσας, καὶ τὰ παιδία αὐτῶν τριάκοντα, βόας τεσσαράκοντα, ταύρους δέκα, ὄνους εἴκοσι καὶ πώλους δέκα.
16 καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτὰ τοῖς παισὶν αὐτοῦ ποίμνιον κατὰ μόνας. εἶπε δὲ τοῖς παισὶν αὐτοῦ· προπορεύεσθε ἔμπροσθέν μου, καὶ διάστημα ποιεῖτε ἀνὰ μέσον ποίμνης καὶ ποίμνης.
17 καὶ ἐνετείλατο τῷ πρώτῳ, λέγων· ἐάν σοι συναντήσῃ ῾Ησαῦ ὁ ἀδελφός μου καὶ ἐρωτᾷ σε, λέγων· τίνος εἶ καὶ ποῦ πορεύῃ, καὶ τίνος ταῦτα τὰ προπορευόμενά σου;
18 ἐρεῖς· τοῦ παιδός σου ᾿Ιακώβ· δῶρα ἀπέσταλκε τῷ κυρίῳ μου ῾Ησαῦ, καὶ ἰδοὺ αὐτὸς ὀπίσω ἡμῶν.
19 καὶ ἐνετείλατο τῷ πρώτῳ καὶ τῷ δευτέρῳ καὶ τῷ τρίτῳ καὶ πᾶσι τοῖς προπορευομένοις ὀπίσω τῶν ποιμνίων τούτων, λέγων· κατὰ τὸ ρῆμα τοῦτο λαλήσατε ῾Ησαῦ ἐν τῷ εὑρεῖν ὑμᾶς αὐτὸν
20 καὶ ἐρεῖτε· ἰδοὺ ὁ παῖς σου ᾿Ιακὼβ παραγίνεται ὀπίσω ἡμῶν. εἶπε γάρ· ἐξιλάσομαι τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ ἐν τοῖς δώροις τοῖς προπορευομένοις αὐτοῦ, καὶ μετὰ τοῦτο ὄψομαι τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ· ἴσως γὰρ προσδέξεται τὸ πρόσωπόν μου.
21 καὶ προεπορεύετο τὰ δῶρα κατὰ πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ, αὐτὸς δὲ ἐκοιμήθη τὴν νύκτα ἐκείνην ἐν τῇ παρεμβολῇ.
22 ᾿Αναστὰς δὲ τὴν νύκτα ἐκείνην ἔλαβε τὰς δύο γυναῖκας καὶ τὰς δύο παιδίσκας καὶ τὰ ἕνδεκα παιδία αὐτοῦ καὶ διέβη τὴν διάβασιν τοῦ ᾿Ιαβώκ·
23 καὶ ἔλαβεν αὐτοὺς καὶ διέβη τὸν χειμάρρουν καὶ διεβίβασε πάντα τὰ αὐτοῦ.
24 ὑπελείφθη δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ μόνος, καὶ ἐπάλαιεν ἄνθρωπος μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ ἕως πρωΐ.
25 εἶδε δέ, ὅτι οὐ δύναται πρὸς αὐτόν, καὶ ἥψατο τοῦ πλάτους τοῦ μηροῦ αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐνάρκησε τὸ πλάτος τοῦ μηροῦ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἐν τῷ παλαίειν αὐτὸν μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ.
26 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· ἀπόστειλόν με· ἀνέβη γὰρ ὁ ὄρθρος. ὁ δὲ εἶπεν· οὐ μή σε ἀποστείλω, ἐὰν μή με εὐλογήσῃς.
27 εἶπε δὲ αὐτῷ· τί τὸ ὄνομά σου ἐστίν, ὁ δὲ εἶπεν· ᾿Ιακώβ.
28 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· οὐ κληθήσεται ἔτι τὸ ὄνομά σου ᾿Ιακώβ, ἀλλ᾿ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἔσται τὸ ὄνομά σου, ὅτι ἐνίσχυσας μετὰ Θεοῦ, καὶ μετ᾿ ἀνθρώπων δυνατὸς ἔσῃ.
29 ἠρώτησε δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ καὶ εἶπεν· ἀνάγγειλόν μοι τὸ ὄνομά σου. καὶ εἶπεν· ἱνατί τοῦτο ἐρωτᾶς σὺ τὸ ὄνομά μου; καὶ εὐλόγησεν αὐτὸν ἐκεῖ.
30 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν ᾿Ιακὼβ τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ τόπου ἐκείνου, Εἶδος Θεοῦ· εἶδον γὰρ Θεὸν πρόσωπον πρὸς πρόσωπον, καὶ ἐσώθη μου ἡ ψυχή.
31 ἀνέτειλε δὲ αὐτῷ ὁ ἥλιος, ἡνίκα παρῆλθε τὸ εἶδος τοῦ Θεοῦ· αὐτὸς δέ ἐπέσκαζε τῷ μηρῷ αὐτοῦ·
32 ἕνεκεν τούτου οὐ μὴ φάγωσιν υἱοὶ ᾿Ισραὴλ τὸ νεῦρον, ὃ ἐνάρκησεν, ὅ ἐστιν ἐπὶ τοῦ πλάτους τοῦ μηροῦ, ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης, ὅτι ἥψατο τοῦ πλάτους τοῦ μηροῦ ᾿Ιακὼβ τοῦ νεύρου, ὃ ἐνάρκησεν.
ΑΝΑΒΛΕΨΑΣ δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς αὐτοῦ εἶδε καὶ ἰδοὺ ῾Ησαῦ ὁ ἀδελφὸς αὐτοῦ ἐρχόμενος καὶ τετρακόσιοι ἄνδρες μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ. καὶ διεῖλεν ᾿Ιακὼβ τὰ παιδία ἐπὶ Λείαν καὶ ἐπί Ραχὴλ καὶ τὰς δύος παιδίσκας.
2 καὶ ἔθετο τὰς δύο παιδίσκας καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτῶν ἐν πρώτοις καὶ Λείαν καὶ τὰ παιδία αὐτῆς ὀπίσω καὶ Ραχὴλ καὶ ᾿Ιωσὴφ ἐσχάτους.
3 αὐτὸς δὲ προῆλθεν ἔμπροσθεν αὐτῶν καὶ προσεκύνησεν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν ἑπτάκις ἕως τοῦ ἐγγίσαι τῷ ἀδελφῷ αὐτοῦ.
4 καὶ προσέδραμεν ῾Ησαῦ εἰς συνάντησιν αὐτῷ καὶ περιλαβὼν αὐτὸν προσέπεσεν ἐπὶ τὸν τράχηλον αὐτοῦ καὶ κατεφίλησεν αὐτὸν καὶ ἔκλαυσαν ἀμφότεροι.
5 καὶ ἀναβλέψας ῾Ησαῦ εἶδε τὰς γυναῖκας καὶ τὰ παιδία καὶ εἶπε· τί ταῦτά σοι ἐστίν; ὁ δὲ εἶπε· τὰ παιδία, οἷς ἠλέησεν ὁ Θεὸς τὸν παῖδά σου.
6 καὶ προσήγγισαν αἱ παιδίσκαι καὶ τὰ τέκνα αὐτῶν καὶ προσεκύνησαν,
7 καὶ προσήγγισε Λεία καὶ τὰ τέκνα αὐτῆς καὶ προσεκύνησαν. καὶ μετὰ ταῦτα προσήγγισε Ραχὴλ καὶ ᾿Ιωσὴφ καὶ προσεκύνησαν.
8 καὶ εἶπε· τί ταῦτά σοι ἐστί, πᾶσαι αἱ παρεμβολαί αὗται, αἷς ἀπήντηκα; ὁ δὲ εἶπεν· ἵνα εὕρῃ ὁ παῖς σου χάριν ἐναντίον σου, κύριε.
9 εἶπε δὲ ῾Ησαῦ· ἔστι μοι πολλά, ἀδελφέ· ἔστω σοι τὰ σά.
10 εἶπε δὲ ᾿Ιακώβ· εἰ εὗρον χάριν ἐναντίον σου, δέξαι τὰ δῶρα διὰ τῶν ἐμῶν χειρῶν· ἕνεκεν τούτου εἶδον τὸ πρόσωπόν σου, ὡς ἄν τις ἴδοι πρόσωπον Θεοῦ, καὶ εὐδοκήσεις με.
11 λαβὲ τὰς εὐλογίας μου, ἃς ἤνεγκά σοι, ὅτι ἠλέησέ με ὁ Θεὸς καὶ ἔστι μοι πάντα. καὶ ἐβιάσατο αὐτὸν καὶ ἔλαβε·
12 καὶ εἶπεν· ἀπάραντες πορευσώμεθα ἐπ᾿ εὐθεῖαν.
13 εἶπε δὲ αὐτῷ· ὁ κύριός μου γινώσκει, ὅτι τὰ παιδία ἁπαλώτερα καὶ τὰ πρόβατα καὶ αἱ βόες λοχεύονται ἐπ᾿ ἐμέ· ἐὰν οὖν καταδιώξω αὐτὰ ἡμέραν μίαν, ἀποθανοῦνται πάντα τὰ κτήνη.
14 προελθέτω ὁ κύριός μου ἔμπροσθεν τοῦ παιδὸς αὐτοῦ, ἐγὼ δὲ ἐνισχύσω ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ κατὰ σχολὴν τῆς πορεύσεως τῆς ἐναντίον μου καὶ κατὰ πόδα τῶν παιδαρίων, ἕως τοῦ ἐλθεῖν με πρὸς τὸν κύριόν μου εἰς Σηείρ.
15 εἶπε δὲ ῾Ησαῦ· καταλείψω μετὰ σοῦ ἀπὸ τοῦ λαοῦ τοῦ μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ. ὁ δὲ εἶπεν· ἱνατί τοῦτο; ἱκανόν, ὅτι εὗρον χάριν ἐναντίον σου, κύριε.
16 ἀπέστρεψε δὲ ῾Ησαῦ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ εἰς τὴν ὁδὸν αὐτοῦ εἰς Σηείρ.
17 Καὶ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἀπαίρει εἰς σκηνάς· καὶ ἐποίησεν ἑαυτῷ ἐκεῖ οἰκίας καὶ τοῖς κτήνεσιν αὐτοῦ ἐποίησε σκηνάς· διὰ τοῦτο ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ τόπου ἐκείνου, Σκηναί.
18 καὶ ἦλθεν ᾿Ιακὼβ εἰς Σαλὴμ πόλιν Σικίμων, ἥ ἐστιν ἐν γῇ Χαναάν, ὅτε ἐπανῆλθεν ἐκ τῆς Μεσοποταμίας Συρίας, καὶ παρενέβαλε κατὰ πρόσωπον τῆς πόλεως.
19 καὶ ἐκτήσατο τὴν μερίδα τοῦ ἀγροῦ, οὗ ἔστησεν ἐκεῖ τὴν σκηνὴν αὐτοῦ, παρὰ ᾿Εμὼρ πατρὸς Συχὲμ ἑκατὸν ἀμνῶν.
20 καὶ ἔστησεν ἐκεῖ θυσιαστήριον καὶ ἐπεκαλέσατο τὸν Θεὸν ᾿Ισραήλ.
ΕΞΗΛΘΕ δὲ Δείνα ἡ θυγάτηρ Λείας, ἣν ἔτεκε τῷ ᾿Ιακώβ, καταμαθεῖν τὰς θυγατέρας τῶν ἐγχωρίων.
2 καὶ εἶδεν αὐτὴν Συχὲμ ὁ υἱὸς ᾿Εμμὼρ ὁ Εὐαῖος, ὁ ἄρχων τῆς γῆς καὶ λαβὼν αὐτήν, ἐκοιμήθη μετ᾿ αὐτῆς καὶ ἐταπείνωσεν αὐτήν.
3 καὶ προσέσχε τῇ ψυχῇ Δείνας τῆς θυγατρὸς ᾿Ιακὼβ καὶ ἠγάπησε τὴν παρθένον καὶ ἐλάλησε κατὰ τὴν διάνοιαν τῆς παρθένου αὐτῇ.
4 εἶπε Συχὲμ πρὸς ᾿Εμμὼρ τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ λέγων· λαβέ μοι τὴν παῖδα ταύτην εἰς γυναῖκα.
5 ᾿Ιακὼβ δὲ ἤκουσεν, ὅτι ἐμίανεν ὁ υἱὸς ᾿Εμμὼρ Δείναν τὴν θυγατέρα αὐτοῦ· οἱ δὲ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ ἦσαν μετὰ τῶν κτηνῶν αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ πεδίῳ. παρεσιώπησε δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἕως τοῦ ἐλθεῖν αὐτούς.
6 ἐξῆλθε δὲ ᾿Εμμὼρ ὁ πατὴρ Συχὲμ πρὸς ᾿Ιακὼβ λαλῆσαι αὐτῷ.
7 οἱ δὲ υἱοὶ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἦλθον ἐκ τοῦ πεδίου· ὡς δὲ ἤκουσαν, κατενύγησαν οἱ ἄνδρες, καὶ λυπηρὸν ἦν αὐτοῖς σφόδρα, ὅτι ἄσχημον ἐποίησεν ἐν ᾿Ισραὴλ κοιμηθεὶς μετὰ τῆς θυγατρός ᾿Ιακώβ, καὶ οὐχ οὕτως ἔσται.
8 καὶ ἐλάλησεν ᾿Εμμὼρ αὐτοῖς λέγων· Συχὲμ ὁ υἱός μου προείλετο τῇ ψυχῇ τὴν θυγατέρα ὑμῶν· δότε οὖν αὐτὴν αὐτῷ γυναῖκα
9 καὶ ἐπιγαμβρεύσασθε ἡμῖν· τὰς θυγατέρας ὑμῶν δότε ἡμῖν καὶ τὰς θυγατέρας ἡμῶν λάβετε τοῖς υἱοῖς ὑμῶν.
10 καὶ ἐν ἡμῖν κατοικεῖτε, καὶ ἡ γῆ ἰδοὺ πλατεῖα ἐναντίον ὑμῶν· κατοικεῖτε καὶ ἐμπορεύεσθε ἐπ᾿ αὐτῆς καὶ ἐγκτᾶσθε ἐν αὐτῇ.
11 εἶπε δὲ Συχὲμ πρὸς τὸν πατέρα αὐτῆς καὶ πρὸς τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτῆς· εὕροιμι χάριν ἐναντίον ὑμῶν, καὶ ὃ ἐὰν εἴπητε, δώσομεν.
12 πληθύνατε τὴν φερνὴν σφόδρα, καὶ δώσω καθότι ἂν εἴπητέ μοι, καὶ δώσατέ μοι τὴν παῖδα ταύτην εἰς γυναῖκα.
13 ἀπεκρίθησαν δὲ οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ιακὼβ τῷ Συχὲμ καὶ ᾿Εμμὼρ τῷ πατρὶ αὐτοῦ μετὰ δόλου καὶ ἐλάλησαν αὐτοῖς, ὅτι ἐμίαναν Δείνα τὴν ἀδελφὴν αὐτῶν,
14 καὶ εἶπαν αὐτοῖς Συμεὼν καὶ Λευὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ Δείνας· οὐ δυνησόμεθα ποιῆσαι τὸ ρῆμα τοῦτο, δοῦναι τὴν ἀδελφὴν ἡμῶν ἀνθρώπῳ, ὃς ἔχει ἀκροβυστίαν· ἔστι γὰρ ὄνειδος ἡμῖν.
15 μόνον ἐν τούτῳ ὁμοιωθησόμεθα ὑμῖν κα’Ι κατοικήσομεν ἐν ὑμῖν, ἐὰν γένησθε ὡς ἡμεῖς καὶ ὑμεῖς ἐν τῷ περιτμηθῆναι ὑμῶν πᾶν ἀρσενικόν.
16 καὶ δώσομεν τὰς θυγατέρας ἡμῶν ὑμῖν καὶ ἀπό τῶν θυγατέρων ὑμῶν ληψόμεθα ἡμῖν γυναῖκας καὶ οἰκήσομεν παρ᾿ ὑμῖν καὶ ἐσόμεθα ὡς γένος ἕν.
17 ἐὰν δὲ μὴ εἰσακούσητε ἡμῶν τοῦ περιτεμέσθαι, λαβόντες τὴν θυγατέρα ἡμῶν ἀπελευσόμεθα.
18 καὶ ἤρεσαν οἱ λόγοι ἐναντίον ᾿Εμμὼρ καὶ ἐναντίον Συχὲμ τοῦ υἱοῦ ᾿Εμμώρ.
19 καὶ οὐκ ἐχρόνισεν ὁ νεανίσκος τοῦ ποιῆσαι τὸ ρῆμα τοῦτο· ἐνέκειτο γὰρ τῇ θυγατρὶ ᾿Ιακώβ· αὐτὸς δὲ ἦν ἐνδοξότατος πάντων τῶν ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ.
20 ἦλθε δὲ ᾿Εμμὼρ καὶ Συχὲμ ὁ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ πρὸς τὴν πύλην τῆς πόλεως αὐτῶν καὶ ἐλάλησαν πρὸς τοὺς ἄνδρας τῆς πόλεως αὐτῶν λέγοντες·
21 οἱ ἄνθρωποι οὗτοι εἰρηνικοί εἰσι, μεθ᾿ ἡμῶν οἰκείτωσαν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς καὶ ἐμπορευέσθωσαν αὐτήν, ἡ δὲ γῆ ἰδοὺ πλατεῖα ἐναντίον αὐτῶν. τὰς θυγατέρας αὐτῶν ληψόμεθα ἡμῖν γυναῖκας καὶ τὰς θυγατέρας ἡμῶν δώσομεν αὐτοῖς.
22 ἐν τούτῳ μόνον ὁμοιωθήσονται ἡμῖν οἱ ἄνθρωποι τοῦ κατοικεῖν μεθ᾿ ἡμῶν, ὥστε εἶναι λαὸν ἕνα, ἐν τῷ περιτεμέσθαι ἡμῶν πᾶν ἀρσενικόν, καθὰ καὶ αὐτοὶ περιτέτμηνται.
23 καὶ τὰ κτήνη αὐτῶν καὶ τὰ τετράποδα καὶ τὰ ὑπάρχοντα αὐτῶν οὐχ ἡμῶν ἔσται· μόνον ἐν τούτῳ ὁμοιωθῶμεν αὐτοῖς, καὶ οἰκήσουσι μεθ᾿ ἡμῶν.
24 καὶ εἰσήκουσαν ᾿Εμμὼρ καὶ Συχὲμ τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ πάντες οἱ ἐμπορευόμενοι τὴν πύλην τῆς πόλεως αὐτῶν καὶ περιετέμοντο τὴν σάρκα τῆς ἀκροβυστίας αὐτῶν πᾶς ἄρσην.
25 ἐγένετο δὲ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ, ὅτε ἦσαν ἐν τῷ πόνῳ, ἔλαβον οἱ δύο υἱοὶ ᾿Ιακὼβ Συμεὼν καὶ Λευὶ ἀδελφοὶ Δείνας ἕκαστος τὴν μάχαιραν αὐτοῦ καὶ εἰσῆλθον εἰς τὴν πόλιν ἀσφαλῶς καὶ ἀπέκτειναν πᾶν ἀρσενικόν·
26 τόν τε ᾿Εμμὼρ καὶ Συχὲμ τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ ἀπέκτειναν ἐν στόματι μαχαίρας. καὶ ἔλαβον τὴν Δείναν ἐκ τοῦ οἴκου τοῦ Συχὲμ καὶ ἐξῆλθον.
27 οἱ δὲ υἱοὶ ᾿Ιακὼβ εἰσῆλθον ἐπὶ τοὺς τραυματίας καὶ διήρπασαν τὴν πόλιν, ἐν ᾗ ἐμίαναν Δείναν τὴν ἀδελφὴν αὐτῶν,
28 καὶ τὰ πρόβατα αὐτῶν καὶ τοὺς βόας αὐτῶν καὶ τοὺς ὄνους αὐτῶν, ὅσα τε ἦν ἐν τῇ πόλει καὶ ὅσα ἦν ἐν τῷ πεδίῳ, ἔλαβον.
29 καὶ πάντα τὰ σώματα αὐτῶν καὶ πᾶσαν τὴν ἀποσκευὴν αὐτῶν καὶ τὰς γυναῖκας αὐτῶν ᾐχμαλώτευσαν, καὶ διήρπασαν ὅσα τε ἦν ἐν τῇ πόλει καὶ ὅσα ἦν ἐν ταῖς οἰκίαις.
30 εἶπε δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ πρὸς Συμεὼν καὶ Λευί· μισητόν με πεποιήκατε, ὥστε πονηρόν με εἶναι πᾶσι τοῖς κατοικοῦσι τὴν γῆν, ἔν τε τοῖς Χαναναίοις καὶ ἐν τοῖς Φερεζαίοις· ἐγὼ δὲ ὀλιγοστός εἰμι ἐν ἀριθμῷ, καὶ συναχθέντες ἐπ᾿ ἐμὲ συγκόψουσί με, καὶ ἐκτριβήσομαι ἐγὼ καὶ ὁ οἶκός μου.
31 οἱ δὲ εἶπαν· ἀλλ᾿ ὡσεὶ πόρνῃ χρήσονται τῇ ἀδελφῇ ἡμῶν;
ΕΙΠΕ δὲ ὁ Θεὸς πρὸς ᾿Ιακώβ· ἀναστὰς ἀνάβηθι εἰς τὸν τόπον Βαιθὴλ καὶ οἴκει ἐκεῖ καὶ ποίησον ἐκεῖ θυσιαστήριον τῷ Θεῷ τῷ ὀφθέντι σοι ἐν τῷ ἀποδιδράσκειν σε ἀπὸ προσώπου ῾Ησαῦ τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ σου.
2 εἶπε δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ τῷ οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ καὶ πᾶσι τοῖς μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ· ἄρατε τοὺς θεοὺς τοὺς ἀλλοτρίους τοὺς μεθ᾿ ὑμῶν ἐκ μέσου ὑμῶν καὶ καθαρίσθητε καὶ ἀλλάξατε τὰς στολὰς ὑμῶν,
3 καὶ ἀναστάντες ἀναβῶμεν εἰς Βαιθὴλ καὶ ποιήσωμεν ἐκεῖ θυσιαστήριον τῷ Θεῷ τῷ ἐπακούσαντί μου ἐν ἡμέρᾳ θλίψεως, ὃς ἦν μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ καὶ διέσωσέ με ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ, ᾗ ἐπορεύθην.
4 καὶ ἔδωκαν τῷ ᾿Ιακὼβ τοὺς θεοὺς τοὺς ἀλλοτρίους, οἳ ἦσαν ἐν ταῖς χερσὶν αὐτῶν, καὶ τὰ ἐνώτια τὰ ἐν τοῖς ὠσὶν αὐτῶν, καὶ κατέκρυψεν αὐτὰ ᾿Ιακὼβ ὑπὸ τὴν τερέβινθον τὴν ἐν Σικίμοις καὶ ἀπώλεσαν αὐτὰ ἕως τῆς σήμερον ἡμέρας.
5 καὶ ἐξῇρεν ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐκ Σικίμων, καὶ ἐγένετο φόβος Θεοῦ ἐπὶ τὰς πόλεις τὰς κύκλῳ αὐτῶν, καὶ οὐ κατεδίωξαν ὀπίσω τῶν υἱῶν ᾿Ισραήλ.
6 ἦλθε δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ εἰς Λουζά, ἥ ἐστιν ἐν γῇ Χαναάν, ἥ ἐστι Βαιθήλ, αὐτὸς καὶ πᾶς ὁ λαός, ὃς ἦν μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ.
7 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν ἐκεῖ θυσιαστήριον καὶ ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ τόπου Βαιθήλ. ἐκεῖ γὰρ ἐφάνη αὐτῷ ὁ Θεὸς ἐν τῷ ἀποδιδράσκειν αὐτὸν ἀπὸ προσώπου ῾Ησαῦ τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ.
8 ἀπέθανε δὲ Δεβῶρα ἡ τροφὸς Ρεβέκκας καὶ ἐτάφη κατώτερον Βαιθὴλ ὑπὸ τὴν βάλανον, καὶ ἐκάλεσεν ᾿Ιακὼβ τὸ ὄνομα αὐτῆς Βάλανος πένθους.
9 ῎Ωφθη δὲ ὁ Θεὸς τῷ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἔτι ἐν Λουζᾷ, ὅτε παρεγένετο ἐκ Μεσοποταμίας τῆς Συρίας, καὶ εὐλόγησεν αὐτὸν ὁ Θεός.
10 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ὁ Θεός· τὸ ὄνομά σου οὐ κληθήσεται ἔτι ᾿Ιακώβ, ἀλλ᾿ ᾿Ισραὴλ ἔσται τὸ ὄνομά σου. καὶ ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ.
11 εἶπε δὲ αὐτῷ ὁ Θεός· ἐγὼ ὁ Θεός σου· αὐξάνου καὶ πληθύνου· ἔθνη καὶ συναγωγαὶ ἐθνῶν ἔσονται ἐκ σοῦ, καὶ βασιλεῖς ἐκ τῆς ὀσφύος σου ἐξελεύσονται.
12 καὶ τὴν γῆν, ἣν ἔδωκα ῾Αβραὰμ καὶ ᾿Ισαάκ, σοὶ δέδωκα αὐτήν· σοὶ ἔσται, καὶ τῷ σπέρματί σου μετὰ σὲ δώσω τὴν γῆν ταύτην.
13 ἀνέβη δὲ ὁ Θεὸς ἀπ᾿ αὐτοῦ ἐκ τοῦ τόπου, οὗ ἐλάλησε μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ.
14 καὶ ἔστησεν ᾿Ιακὼβ στήλην ἐν τῷ τόπῳ, ᾧ ἐλάλησε μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ ὁ Θεός, στήλην λιθίνην, καὶ ἔσπεισεν ἐπ᾿ αὐτὴν σπονδὴν καὶ ἐπέχεεν ἐπ᾿ αὐτὴν ἔλαιον.
15 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν ᾿Ιακὼβ τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ τόπου, ἐν ᾧ ἐλάλησε μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ ἐκεῖ ὁ Θεός, Βαιθήλ.
16 ᾿Απάρας δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἐκ Βαιθήλ, ἔπηξε τὴν σκηνὴν αὐτοῦ ἐπέκεινα τοῦ πύργου Γαδέρ. ἐγένετο δὲ ἡνίκα ἤγγισεν εἰς Χαβραθὰ τοῦ ἐλθεῖν εἰς τὴν ᾿Εφραθᾶ, ἔτεκε Ραχὴλ καὶ ἐδυστόκησεν ἐν τῷ τοκετῷ.
17 ἐγένετο δὲ ἐν τῷ σκληρῶς αὐτὴν τίκτειν, εἶπεν αὐτῇ ἡ μαῖα· θάρσει, καὶ γὰρ οὗτός σοί ἐστιν υἱός.
18 ἐγένετο δὲ ἐν τῷ ἀφιέναι αὐτὴν τὴν ψυχήν, ἀπέθνησκε γάρ, ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Υἱὸς ὀδύνης μου· ὁ δὲ πατὴρ ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Βενιαμίν.
19 ἀπέθανε δὲ Ραχὴλ καὶ ἐτάφη ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ τοῦ ἱπποδρόμου ᾿Εφραθᾶ (αὕτη ἐστὶ Βηθλεέμ).
20 καὶ ἔστησεν ᾿Ιακὼβ στήλην ἐπὶ τοῦ μνημείου αὐτῆς· αὕτη ἐστὶν ἡ στήλη ἐπὶ τοῦ μνημείου Ραχὴλ ἕως τῆς ἡμέρας ταύτης.
21 ἐγένετο δέ ἡνίκα κατῴκησεν ᾿Ισραὴλ ἐν τῇ γῇ ἐκείνῃ, ἐπορεύθη Ρουβὴν καὶ ἐκοιμήθη μετὰ Βαλλᾶς τῆς παλλακῆς τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ᾿Ιακώβ· καὶ ἤκουσεν ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ πονηρὸν ἐφάνη ἐναντίον αὐτοῦ.
22 ῏Ησαν δὲ οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ιακὼβ δώδεκα.
23 υἱοὶ Λείας· πρωτότοκος ᾿Ιακὼβ Ρουβήν, Συμεών, Λευί, ᾿Ιούδας, ᾿Ισσάχαρ, Ζαβουλών.
24 υἱοὶ δὲ Ραχήλ· ᾿Ιωσὴφ καὶ Βενιαμίν.
25 υἱοὶ δὲ Βαλλᾶς παιδίσκης Ραχήλ· Δὰν καὶ Νεφθαλείμ.
26 υἱοὶ δὲ Ζελφᾶς παιδίσκης Λείας· Γὰδ καὶ ᾿Ασήρ. οὗτοι υἱοὶ ᾿Ιακώβ, οἳ ἐγένοντο αὐτῷ ἐν Μεσοποταμίᾳ τῆς Συρίας.
27 ῏Ηλθε δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ πρὸς ᾿Ισαὰκ τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ εἰς Μαμβρῆ, εἰς πόλιν τοῦ πεδίου (αὕτη ἐστὶ Χεβρών) ἐν γῇ Χαναάν, οὗ παρῴκησεν ῾Αβραὰμ καὶ ᾿Ισαάκ.
28 ἐγένοντο δὲ αἱ ἡμέραι ᾿Ισαάκ, ἃς ἔζησεν, ἔτη ἑκατὸν ὀγδοήκοντα,
29 καὶ ἐκλείπων ᾿Ισαὰκ ἀπέθανε καὶ προσετέθη πρὸς τὸ γένος αὐτοῦ πρεσβύτερος καὶ πλήρης ἡμερῶν, καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτὸν ῾Ησαῦ καὶ ᾿Ιακὼβ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ.
ΑΥΤΑΙ δὲ αἱ γενέσεις ῾Ησαῦ (αὐτός ἐστιν ᾿Εδώμ)·
2 ῾Ησαῦ δὲ ἔλαβε τὰς γυναῖκας ἑαυτῷ ἀπὸ τῶν θυγατέρων τῶν Χαναναίων, τὴν ᾿Αδὰ θυγατέρα Αἰλὼμ τοῦ Χετταίου καὶ τοῦ ᾿Ολιβεμὰ θυγατέρα ᾿Ανὰ τοῦ υἱοῦ Σεβεγὼν τοῦ Εὐαίου
3 καὶ τὴν Βασεμὰθ θυγατέρα ᾿Ισμαὴλ ἀδελφὴν Ναβεώθ.
4 ἔτεκε δὲ αὐτῷ ᾿Αδὰ τὸν ῾Ελιφάς, καὶ Βασεμὰθ ἔτεκε τὸν Ραγουήλ,
5 καὶ ᾿Ολιβεμὰ ἔτεκε τὸν ᾿Ιεοὺς καὶ τὸν ᾿Ιεγλὸμ καὶ τὸν Κορέ· οὗτοι υἱοὶ ῾Ησαῦ, οἳ ἐγένοντο αὐτῷ ἐν γῇ Χαναάν.
6 ἔλαβε δὲ ῾Ησαῦ τὰς γυναῖκας αὐτοῦ καὶ τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτοῦ καὶ τὰς θυγατέρας αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντα τὰ σώματα τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντα τὰ ὑπάρχοντα αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντα τὰ κτήνη καὶ πάντα ὅσα ἐκτήσατο καὶ πάντα ὅσα περιεποιήσατο ἐν γῇ Χαναάν, καὶ ἐπορεύθη ῾Ησαῦ ἐκ τῆς γῆς Χαναὰν ἀπό προσώπου ᾿Ιακὼβ τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ.
7 ἦν γὰρ αὐτῶν τὰ ὑπάρχοντα πολλὰ τοῦ οἰκεῖν ἅμα, καὶ οὐκ ἠδύνατο ἡ γῆ τῆς παροικήσεως αὐτῶν φέρειν αὐτοὺς ἀπὸ τοῦ πλήθους τῶν ὑπαρχόντων αὐτῶν.
8 κατῴκησε δὲ ῾Ησαῦ ἐν τῷ ὄρει Σηεὶρ (῾Ησαῦ αὐτός ἐστιν ᾿Εδώμ).
9 Αὗται δὲ αἱ γενέσεις ῾Ησαῦ πατρὸς ᾿Εδὼμ ἐν τῷ ὄρει Σηείρ,
10 καὶ ταῦτα τὰ ὀνόματα τῶν υἱῶν ῾Ησαῦ· ῾Ελιφὰς υἱὸς ᾿Αδᾶς γυναικὸς ῾Ησαῦ καὶ Ραγουὴλ υἱὸς Βασεμὰθ γυναικὸς ῾Ησαῦ.

12 Θαμνὰ δὲ ἦν παλλακὴ ῾Ελιφὰς τοῦ υἱοῦ ῾Ησαῦ καὶ ἔτεκε τῷ ῾Ελιφὰς τὸν ᾿Αμαλήκ· οὗτοι υἱοὶ ᾿Αδᾶς γυναικὸς ῾Ησαῦ.
13 οὗτοι δὲ υἱοὶ Ραγουήλ· Ναχόθ, Ζαρέ, Σομέ, καὶ Μοζέ· οὗτοι ἦσαν υἱοὶ Βασεμὰθ γυναικὸς ῾Ησαῦ.

20 Οὗτοι δὲ υἱοὶ Σηεὶρ τοῦ Χορραίου τοῦ κατοικοῦντος τὴν γῆν· Λωτά, Σωβάλ, Σεβεγών, ᾿Ανὰ

31 Καὶ οὗτοι οἱ βασιλεῖς οἱ βασιλεύσαντες ἐν ᾿Εδὼμ πρὸ τοῦ βασιλεῦσαι βασιλέα ἐν ᾿Ισραήλ.
32 καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ἐν ᾿Εδὼμ Βαλὰκ υἱὸς Βεώρ, καὶ ὄνομα τῇ πόλει αὐτοῦ Δενναβά.
33 ἀπέθανε δὲ Βαλάκ, καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν ἀντ᾿ αὐτοῦ ᾿Ιωβὰβ υἱὸς Ζαρὰ ἐκ Βοσόρρας.

ΚΑΤῼΚΕΙ δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ ἐν τῇ γῇ, οὗ παρώκησεν ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ, ἐν γῇ Χαναάν.
2 αὗται δὲ αἱ γενέσεις ᾿Ιακώβ· ᾿Ιωσὴφ δὲ δέκα καὶ ἑπτὰ ἐτῶν ἦν, ποιμαίνων τὰ πρόβατα τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ μετὰ τῶν ἀδελφῶν αὐτοῦ, ὢν νέος, μετὰ τῶν υἱῶν Βαλλᾶς καὶ μετὰ τῶν υἱῶν Ζελφᾶς τῶν γυναικῶν τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ· κατήνεγκαν δὲ ᾿Ιωσὴφ ψόγον πονηρὸν πρὸς ᾿Ισραὴλ τὸν πατέρα αὐτῶν.
3 ᾿Ιακὼβ δέ ἠγάπα τὸν ᾿Ιωσὴφ παρὰ πάντας τοὺς υἱοὺς αὐτοῦ, ὅτι υἱὸς γήρως ἦν αὐτῷ· ἐποίησε δὲ αὐτῷ χιτῶνα ποικίλον.
4 ἰδόντες δὲ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ, ὅτι αὐτὸν ὁ πατὴρ φιλεῖ ἐκ πάντων τῶν υἱῶν αὐτοῦ, ἐμίσησαν αὐτὸν καὶ οὐκ ἠδύναντο λαλεῖν αὐτῷ οὐδὲν εἰρηνικόν.
5 ᾿Ενυπνιασθεὶς δὲ ᾿Ιωσὴφ ἐνύπνιον ἀπήγγειλεν αὐτὸ τοῖς ἀδελφοῖς αὐτοῦ.
6 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς· ἀκούσατε τοῦ ἐνυπνίου τούτου, οὗ ἐνυπνιάσθην·
7 ᾤμην ὑμᾶς δεσμεύειν δράγματα ἐν μέσῳ τῷ πεδίῳ, καὶ ἀνέστη τὸ ἐμὸν δράγμα καὶ ὠρθώθη, περιστραφέντα δὲ τὰ δράγματα ὑμῶν προσεκύνησαν τὸ ἐμὸν δράγμα.
8 εἶπαν δὲ αὐτῷ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ· μὴ βασιλεύων βασιλεύσεις ἐφ᾿ ἡμᾶς ἢ κυριεύων κυριεύσεις ἡμῶν; καὶ προσέθεντο ἔτι μισεῖν αὐτὸν ἕνεκεν τῶν ἐνυπνίων αὐτοῦ καὶ ἕνεκεν τῶν ρημάτων αὐτοῦ.
9 εἶδε δὲ ἐνύπνιον ἕτερον καὶ διηγήσατο αὐτῷ τῷ πατρὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ τοῖς ἀδελφοῖς αὐτοῦ, καὶ εἶπεν· ἰδοὺ ἐνυπνιασάμην ἐνύπνιον ἕτερον, ὥσπερ ὁ ἥλιος καὶ ἡ σελήνη καὶ ἕνδεκα ἀστέρες προσεκύνουν με.
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.
21 ἀκούσας δὲ Ρουβὴν ἐξείλετο αὐτὸν ἐκ τῶν χειρῶν αὐτῶν καὶ εἶπεν· οὐ πατάξωμεν αὐτὸν εἰς ψυχήν.
22 εἶπε δὲ αὐτοῖς Ρουβήν· μὴ ἐκχέητε αἷμα· ἐμβάλλετε αὐτὸν εἰς ἕνα τῶν λάκκων τούτων τῶν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ, χεῖρα δὲ μὴ ἐπενέγκητε αὐτῷ· ὅπως ἐξέληται αὐτὸν ἐκ τῶν χειρῶν αὐτῶν καὶ ἀποδῷ αὐτὸν τῷ πατρὶ αὐτοῦ.
23 ἐγένετο δὲ ἡνίκα ἦλθεν ᾿Ιωσὴφ πρὸς τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτοῦ, ἐξέδυσαν ᾿Ιωσὴφ τὸν χιτῶνα τὸν ποικίλον τὸν περὶ αὐτόν
24 καὶ λαβόντες αὐτόν ἔρριψαν εἰς τὸν λάκκον· ὁ δὲ λάκκος κενός, ὕδωρ οὐκ εἶχεν.
25 ᾿Εκάθισαν δὲ φαγεῖν ἄρτον καὶ ἀναβλέψαντες τοῖς ὀφθαλμοῖς εἶδον, καὶ ἰδοὺ ὁδοιπόροι ᾿Ισμαηλῖται ἤρχοντο ἐκ Γαλαάδ, καὶ αἱ κάμηλοι αὐτῶν ἔγεμαν θυμιαμάτων καὶ ρητίνης καὶ στακτῆς· ἐπορεύοντο δὲ καταγαγεῖν εἰς Αἴγυπτον.
26 εἶπε δὲ ᾿Ιούδας πρὸς τούς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτοῦ· τί χρήσιμον, ἐὰν ἀποκτείνωμεν τὸν ἀδελφὸν ἡμῶν καὶ κρύψωμεν τὸ αἷμα αὐτοῦ;
27 δεῦτε ἀποδώμεθα αὐτὸν τοῖς ᾿Ισμαηλίταις τούτοις, αἱ δὲ χεῖρες ἡμῶν μὴ ἔστωσαν ἐπ᾿ αὐτόν, ὅτι ἀδελφὸς ἡμῶν καὶ σὰρξ ἡμῶν ἐστιν. ἤκουσαν δὲ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ.
28 καὶ παρεπορεύοντο οἱ ἄνθρωποι οἱ Μαδιηναῖοι ἔμποροι, καὶ ἐξείλκυσαν καὶ ἀνεβίβασαν τὸν ᾿Ιωσὴφ ἐκ τοῦ λάκκου καὶ ἀπέδοντο τὸν ᾿Ιωσὴφ τοῖς ᾿Ισμαηλίταις εἴκοσι χρυσῶν, καὶ κατήγαγον τὸν ᾿Ιωσὴφ εἰς Αἴγυπτον.
29 ἀνέστρεψε δὲ Ρουβὴν ἐπὶ τὸν λάκκον καὶ οὐχ ὁρᾷ τὸν ᾿Ιωσὴφ ἐν τῷ λάκκῳ. καὶ διέρρηξε τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ.
30 καὶ ἐπέστρεψε πρὸς τοὺς ἀδελφοὺς αὐτοῦ. καὶ εἶπε· τὸ παιδάριον οὐκ ἔστιν, ἐγὼ δὲ ποῦ πορεύομαι ἔτι;
31 Λαβόντες δὲ τὸν χιτῶνα τοῦ ᾿Ιωσὴφ ἔσφαξαν ἔριφον αἰγῶν καὶ ἐμόλυναν τὸν χιτῶνα τῷ αἵματι.
32 καὶ ἀπέστειλαν τὸν χιτῶνα τὸν ποικίλον καὶ εἰσήνεγκαν τῷ πατρὶ αὐτῶν. καὶ εἶπαν· τοῦτον εὕρομεν, ἐπίγνωθι εἰ χιτὼν τοῦ υἱοῦ σού ἐστιν ἢ οὔ.
33 καὶ ἐπέγνω αὐτὸν καὶ εἶπε· χιτὼν τοῦ υἱοῦ μού ἐστι· θηρίον πονηρὸν κατέφαγεν αὐτόν, θηρίον ἥρπασε τὸν ᾿Ιωσήφ.
34 διέρρηξε δὲ ᾿Ιακὼβ τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπέθετο σάκκον ἐπὶ τὴν ὀσφὺν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπένθει τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ ἡμέρας πολλάς.
35 συνήχθησαν δὲ πάντες οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ αἱ θυγατέρες καὶ ἦλθον παρακαλέσαι αὐτόν, καὶ οὐκ ἤθελε παρακαλεῖσθαι λέγων ὅτι· καταβήσομαι πρὸς τὸν υἱόν μου πενθῶν εἰς ᾅδου. καὶ ἔκλαυσεν αὐτὸν ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ.
36 οἱ δὲ Μαδιηναῖοι ἀπέδοντο τὸν ᾿Ιωσὴφ εἰς Αἴγυπτον τῷ Πετεφρῇ τῷ σπάδοντι Φαραώ, ἀρχιμαγείρῳ.
ΕΓΕΝΕΤΟ δέ ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ, κατέβη ᾿Ιούδας ἀπὸ τῶν ἀδελφῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀφίκετο ἕως πρὸς ἄνθρωπόν τινα ᾿Οδολλαμίτην, ᾧ ὄνομα Εἰράς.
2 καὶ εἶδεν ἐκεῖ ᾿Ιούδας θυγατέρα ἀνθρώπου Χαναναίου, ᾗ ὄνομα Σαυά, καὶ ἔλαβεν αὐτὴν καὶ εἰσῆλθε πρὸς αὐτήν.
3 καὶ συλλαβοῦσα ἔτεκεν υἱὸν καὶ ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ῎Ηρ.
4 καὶ συλλαβοῦσα ἔτεκεν υἱὸν ἔτι καὶ ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Αὐνάν.
5 καὶ προσθεῖσα ἔτεκεν υἱὸν καὶ ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Σηλώμ. αὕτη δὲ ἦν ἐν Χασβί, ἡνίκα ἔτεκεν αὐτούς.
6 καὶ ἔλαβεν ᾿Ιούδας γυναῖκα ῍Ηρ τῷ πρωτοτόκῳ αὐτοῦ, ᾗ ὄνομα Θάμαρ.
7 ἐγένετο δὲ ῍Ηρ πρωτότοκος ᾿Ιούδα πονηρὸς ἔναντι Κυρίου, καὶ ἀπέκτεινεν αὐτὸν ὁ Θεός.
8 εἶπε δὲ ᾿Ιούδας τῷ Αὐνάν· εἴσελθε πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ σου καὶ ἐπιγάμβρευσαι αὐτὴν καὶ ἀνάστησον σπέρμα τῷ ἀδελφῷ σου.
9 γνοὺς δὲ Αὐνὰν ὅτι οὐκ αὐτῷ ἔσται τὸ σπέρμα, ἐγίνετο ὅταν εἰσήρχετο πρὸς τὴν γυναῖκα τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ, ἐξέχεεν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν τοῦ μὴ δοῦναι σπέρμα τῷ ἀδελφῷ αὐτοῦ.
10 πονηρὸν δὲ ἐφάνη ἐναντίον τοῦ Θεοῦ, ὅτι ἐποίησε τοῦτο, καὶ ἐθανάτωσε καὶ τοῦτον.
11 εἶπε δὲ ᾿Ιούδας Θάμαρ τῇ νύμφῃ αὐτοῦ· κάθου χήρα ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τοῦ πατρός σου ἕως μέγας γένηται Σηλὼμ ὁ υἱός μου. εἶπε γάρ· μή ποτε ἀποθάνῃ καὶ οὗτος, ὥσπερ καὶ οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ. ἀπελθοῦσα δὲ Θάμαρ ἐκάθητο ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῆς.
12 ᾿Επληθύνθησαν δὲ αἱ ἡμέραι καὶ ἀπέθανε Σαυὰ ἡ γυνὴ ᾿Ιούδα· καὶ παρακληθεὶς ᾿Ιούδας ἀνέβη ἐπὶ τοὺς κείροντας τά πρόβατα αὐτοῦ, αὐτὸς καὶ Εἰρὰς ὁ ποιμὴν αὐτοῦ ὁ ᾿Οδολλαμίτης εἰς Θαμνά.
13 καὶ ἀπηγγέλη Θάμαρ τῇ νύμφῃ αὐτοῦ λέγοντες· ἰδοὺ ὁ πενθερός σου ἀναβαίνει εἰς Θαμνὰ κεῖραι τὰ πρόβατα αὐτοῦ.
14 καὶ περιελομένη τὰ ἱμάτια τῆς χηρεύσεως ἀφ᾿ ἑαυτῆς, περιεβάλετο θέριστρον καὶ ἐκαλλωπίσατο καὶ ἐκάθισε πρὸς ταῖς πύλαις Αἰνάν, ἥ ἐστιν ἐν παρόδῳ Θαμνά· εἶδε γὰρ ὅτι μέγας γέγονε Σηλώμ, αὐτὸς δὲ οὐκ ἔδωκεν αὐτὴν αὐτῷ γυναῖκα.
15 καὶ ἰδὼν αὐτὴν ᾿Ιούδας ἔδοξεν αὐτὴν πόρνην εἶναι· κατεκαλύψατο γὰρ τὸ πρόσωπον αὐτῆς, καὶ οὐκ ἐπέγνω αὐτήν.
16 ἐξέκλινε δὲ πρὸς αὐτὴν τὴν ὁδὸν καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῇ· ἔασόν με εἰσελθεῖν πρὸς σέ· οὐ γὰρ ἔγνω ὅτι νύμφη αὐτοῦ ἐστίν. ἡ δὲ εἶπε· τί μοι δώσεις, ἐὰν εἰσέλθῃς πρός με;
17 ὁ δὲ εἶπεν· ἐγώ σοι ἀποστελῶ ἔριφον αἰγῶν ἐκ τῶν προβάτων μου, ἡ δὲ εἶπεν· ἐὰν δῷς μοι ἀρραβῶνα, ἕως τοῦ ἀποστεῖλαί σε.
18 ὁ δὲ εἶπε· τίνα τὸν ἀρραβῶνά σοι δώσω; ἡ δὲ εἶπε· τὸν δακτύλιόν σου καὶ τὸν ὁρμίσκον, καὶ τὴν ράβδον τὴν ἐν τῇ χειρί σου. καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτῇ καὶ εἰσῆλθε πρὸς αὐτήν, καὶ ἐν γαστρὶ ἔλαβεν ἐξ αὐτοῦ.
19 καὶ ἀναστᾶσα ἀπῆλθε καὶ περιείλετο τὸ θέριστρον αὐτῆς ἀφ᾿ ἑαυτῆς καὶ ἐνεδύσατο τὰ ἱμάτια τῆς χηρεύσεως αὐτῆς.
20 ἀπέστειλε δὲ ᾿Ιούδας τὸν ἔριφον ἐξ αἰγῶν ἐν χειρὶ τοῦ ποιμένος αὐτοῦ τοῦ ᾿Οδολλαμίτου κομίσασθαι παρὰ τῆς γυναικὸς τὸν ἀρραβῶνα, καὶ οὐχ εὗρεν αὐτήν.
21 ἐπηρώτησε δὲ τοὺς ἄνδρας τοὺς ἐκ τοῦ τόπου· ποῦ ἐστιν ἡ πόρνη ἡ γενομένη ἐν Αἰνὰν ἐπὶ τῆς ὁδοῦ; καὶ εἶπαν· οὐκ ἦν ἐνταῦθα πόρνη.
22 καὶ ἀπεστράφη πρὸς ᾿Ιούδαν καὶ εἶπεν· οὐχ εὗρον, καὶ οἱ ἄνθρωποι οἱ ἐκ τοῦ τόπου λέγουσι μὴ εἶναι ὧδε πόρνην.
23 εἶπε δὲ ᾿Ιούδας· ἐχέτω αὐτά, ἀλλὰ μή ποτε καταγελασθῶμεν· ἐγὼ μὲν ἀπέσταλκα τὸν ἔριφον τοῦτον, σὺ δὲ οὐχ εὕρηκας.
24 ᾿Εγένετο δὲ μετὰ τρίμηνον ἀνηγγέλη τῷ ᾿Ιούδᾳ λέγοντες· ἐκπεπόρνευκε Θάμαρ ἡ νύμφη σου καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐν γαστρὶ ἔχει ἐκ πορνείας. εἶπε δὲ ᾿Ιούδας· ἐξαγάγετε αὐτήν, καὶ κατακαυθήτω.
25 αὐτὴ δὲ ἀγομένη ἀπέστειλε πρὸς τὸν πενθερὸν αὐτῆς λέγουσα· ἐκ τοῦ ἀνθρώπου, οὗτινος ταῦτά ἐστιν, ἐγὼ ἐν γαστρὶ ἔχω. καὶ εἶπεν· ἐπίγνωθι, τίνος ὁ δακτύλιος καὶ ὁ ὁρμίσκος καὶ ἡ ράβδος αὕτη.
26 ἐπέγνω δὲ ᾿Ιούδας καὶ εἶπε· δεδικαίωται Θάμαρ ἢ ἐγώ, οὗ ἕνεκεν οὐκ ἔδωκα αὐτὴν Σηλὼν τῷ υἱῷ μου. καὶ οὐ προσέθετο ἔτι τοῦ γνῶναι αὐτήν.
27 ᾿Εγένετο δὲ ἡνίκα ἔτικτε, καὶ τῇδε ἦν δίδυμα ἐν τῇ γαστρὶ αὐτῆς.
28 ἐγένετο δὲ ἐν τῷ τίκτειν αὐτήν, ὁ εἷς προεξήνεγκε τὴν χεῖρα· λαβοῦσα δὲ ἡ μαῖα ἔδησεν ἐπί τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ κόκκινον λέγουσα· οὗτος ἐξελεύσεται πρότερος.
29 ὡς δὲ ἐπισυνήγαγε τὴν χεῖρα, καὶ εὐθὺς ἐξῆλθεν ὁ ἀδελφὸς αὐτοῦ. ἡ δὲ εἶπε· τί διεκόπη διὰ σὲ φραγμός; καὶ ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Φαρές.
30 καί μετὰ τοῦτο ἐξῆλθεν ὁ ἀδελφὸς αὐτοῦ, ἐφ᾿ ᾧ ἦν ἐπὶ τῇ χειρὶ αὐτοῦ τὸ κόκκινον· καὶ ἐκάλεσε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Ζαρά.
ΙΩΣΗΦ δὲ κατήχθη εἰς Αἴγυπτον, καὶ ἐκτήσατο αὐτὸν Πετεφρὴς ὁ εὐνοῦχος Φαραώ, ὁ ἀρχιμάγειρος, ἀνὴρ Αἰγύπτιος, ἐκ χειρῶν τῶν ᾿Ισμαηλιτῶν, οἳ κατήγαγον αὐτὸν ἐκεῖ.
2 καὶ ἦν Κύριος μετὰ ᾿Ιωσήφ, καὶ ἦν ἀνὴρ ἐπιτυγχάνων καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ παρὰ τῷ κυρίῳ αὐτοῦ τῷ Αἰγυπτίῳ.
3 ᾔδει δὲ ὁ κύριος αὐτοῦ, ὅτι ὁ Κύριος ἦν μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ καὶ ὅσα ἐὰν ποιῇ, Κύριος εὐοδοῖ ἐν ταῖς χερσὶν αὐτοῦ.
4 καὶ εὗρεν ᾿Ιωσὴφ χάριν ἐναντίον τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ, καὶ εὐηρέστησεν αὐτῷ, καὶ κατέστησεν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντα, ὅσα ἦν αὐτῷ, ἔδωκε διὰ χειρὸς ᾿Ιωσήφ.
5 ἐγένετο δὲ μετὰ τὸ καταστῆναι αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπὶ πάντα, ὅσα ἦν αὐτῷ, καὶ ηὐλόγησε Κύριος τὸν οἶκον τοῦ Αἰγυπτίου διὰ ᾿Ιωσήφ, καὶ ἐγενήθη εὐλογία Κυρίου ἐν πᾶσι τοῖς ὑπάρχουσιν αὐτῷ ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ καὶ ἐν τῷ ἀγρῷ αὐτοῦ.
6 καὶ ἐπέτρεψε πάντα, ὅσα ἦν αὐτῷ, εἰς χεῖρας ᾿Ιωσὴφ καὶ οὐκ ᾔδει τῶν καθ᾿ αὑτὸν οὐδὲν πλὴν τοῦ ἄρτου, οὗ ἤσθιεν αὐτός. Καὶ ἦν ᾿Ιωσὴφ καλὸς τῷ εἴδει καὶ ὡραῖος τῇ ὄψει σφόδρα.
7 καὶ ἐγένετο μετὰ τὰ ρήματα ταῦτα καὶ ἐπέβαλεν ἡ γυνὴ τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτῆς ἐπὶ ᾿Ιωσὴφ καὶ εἶπε· κοιμήθητι μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ.
8 ὁ δὲ οὐκ ἤθελεν, εἶπε δὲ τῇ γυναικὶ τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ· εἰ ὁ κύριός μου οὐ γινώσκει δι᾿ ἐμὲ οὐδὲν ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ, καὶ πάντα, ὅσα ἐστὶν αὐτῷ, ἔδωκεν εἰς τὰς χεῖράς μου
9 καὶ οὐχ ὑπερέχει ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ ταύτῃ οὐδὲν ἐμοῦ, οὐδὲ ὑπεξῄρηται ἀπ᾿ ἐμοῦ οὐδὲν πλὴν σοῦ, διὰ τὸ σὲ γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ εἶναι, καὶ πῶς ποιήσω τὸ ρῆμα τὸ πονηρὸν τοῦτο, καὶ ἁμαρτήσομαι ἐναντίον τοῦ Θεοῦ;
10 ἡνίκα δὲ ἐλάλει τῷ ᾿Ιωσὴφ ἡμέραν ἐξ ἡμέρας, καὶ οὐχ ὑπήκουεν αὐτῇ καθεύδειν μετ᾿ αὐτῆς τοῦ συγγενέσθαι αὐτῇ.
11 ἐγένετο δὲ τοιαύτη τις ἡμέρα, καὶ εἰσῆλθεν ᾿Ιωσὴφ εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν ποιεῖν τὰ ἔργα αὐτοῦ, καὶ οὐδεὶς ἦν τῶν ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ ἔσω,
12 καὶ ἐπεσπάσατο αὐτὸν τῶν ἱματίων λέγουσα· κοιμήθητι μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ. καὶ καταλιπὼν τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ ἐν ταῖς χερσὶν αὐτῆς ἔφυγε καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ἔξω.
13 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς εἶδεν, ὅτι καταλιπὼν τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ ἐν ταῖς χερσὶν αὐτῆς ἔφυγε καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ἔξω,
14 καὶ ἐκάλεσε τοὺς ὄντας ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς λέγουσα· ἴδετε, εἰσήγαγεν ἡμῖν παῖδα ῾Εβραῖον ἐμπαίζειν ἡμῖν· εἰσῆλθε πρός με λέγων· κοιμήθητι μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ, καὶ ἐβόησα φωνῇ μεγάλῃ·
15 ἐν δὲ τῷ ἀκοῦσαι αὐτὸν ὅτι ὕψωσα τὴν φωνήν μου καὶ ἐβόησα, καταλιπὼν τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ παρ᾿ ἐμοὶ ἔφυγε καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ἔξω.
16 καὶ καταλιμπάνει τὰ ἱμάτια παρ᾿ ἑαυτῇ, ἕως ἦλθεν ὁ κύριος εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ.
17 καὶ ἐλάλησεν αὐτῷ κατὰ τὰ ρήματα ταῦτα λέγουσα· εἰσῆλθε πρός με ὁ παῖς ὁ ῾Εβραῖος, ὃν εἰσήγαγες πρὸς ἡμᾶς, ἐμπαῖξαί μοι καὶ εἶπέ μοι· κοιμηθήσομαι μετὰ σοῦ·
18 ὡς δὲ ἤκουσεν ὅτι ὕψωσα τὴν φωνήν μου καὶ ἐβόησα, καταλιπὼν τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ παρ᾿ ἐμοὶ ἔφυγε καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ἔξω.
19 ἐγένετο δέ, ὡς ἤκουσεν ὁ κύριος αὐτοῦ τὰ ρήματα τῆς γυναικὸς αὐτοῦ, ὅσα ἐλάλησε πρὸς αὐτόν, λέγουσα· οὕτως ἐποίησέ μοι ὁ παῖς σου, καὶ ἐθυμώθη ὀργῇ.
20 καὶ λαβὼν ὁ κύριος ᾿Ιωσὴφ ἐνέβαλεν αὐτὸν εἰς τὸ ὀχύρωμα, εἰς τὸν τόπον, ἐν ᾦ οἱ δεσμῶται τοῦ βασιλέως κατέχονται ἐκεῖ ἐν τῷ ὀχυρώματι.
21 Καὶ ἦν Κύριος μετὰ ᾿Ιωσὴφ καὶ κατέχεεν αὐτοῦ ἔλεος καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτῷ χάριν ἐναντίον τοῦ ἀρχιδεσμοφύλακος,
22 καὶ ἔδωκεν ὁ ἀρχιδεσμοφύλαξ τὸ δεσμωτήριον διὰ χειρὸς ᾿Ιωσὴφ καὶ πάντας τοὺς ἀπηγμένους, ὅσοι ἐν τῷ δεσμωτηρίῳ, καὶ πάντα ὅσα ποιοῦσιν ἐκεῖ, αὐτὸς ἦν ποιῶν.
23 οὐκ ἦν ὁ ἀρχιδεσμοφύλαξ τοῦ δεσμωτηρίου γινώσκων δι᾿ αὐτὸν οὐδέν· πάντα γὰρ ἦν διὰ χειρὸς ᾿Ιωσὴφ διὰ τὸ τὸν Κύριον μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ εἶναι, καὶ ὅσα αὐτὸς ἐποίει, ὁ Κύριος εὐώδου ἐν ταῖς χερσὶν αὐτοῦ.
ΕΓΕΝΕΤΟ δὲ μετὰ τὰ ρήματα ταῦτα ἥμαρτεν ὁ ἀρχιοινοχόος τοῦ βασιλέως Αἰγύπτου καὶ ὁ ἀρχισιτοποιὸς τῷ κυρίῳ αὐτῶν βασιλεῖ Αἰγύπτου.
2 καὶ ὠργίσθη Φαραὼ ἐπὶ τοῖς δυσὶν εὐνούχοις αὐτοῦ, ἐπὶ τῷ ἀρχιοινοχόῳ καὶ ἐπὶ τῷ ἀρχισιτοποιῷ,
3 καὶ ἔθετο αὐτοὺς ἐν φυλακῇ εἰς τὸ δεσμωτήριον, εἰς τὸν τόπον, οὗ ᾿Ιωσὴφ ἀπῆκτο ἐκεῖ.
4 καὶ συνέστησεν ὁ ἀρχιδεσμώτης τῷ ᾿Ιωσὴφ αὐτούς, καὶ παρέστη αὐτοῖς· ἦσαν δὲ ἡμέρας ἐν τῇ φυλακῇ.
5 καὶ εἶδον ἀμφότεροι ἐνύπνιον ἐν μιᾷ νυκτί· ἡ δὲ ὅρασις τοῦ ἐνυπνίου τοῦ ἀρχιοινοχόου καὶ ἀρχισιτοποιοῦ, οἳ ἦσαν τῷ βασιλεῖ Αἰγύπτου, οἱ ὄντες ἐν τῷ δεσμωτηρίῳ, ἦν αὕτη.
6 εἰσῆλθε δὲ πρὸς αὐτοὺς ᾿Ιωσὴφ τῷ πρωΐ καὶ εἶδεν αὐτούς, καὶ ἦσαν τεταραγμένοι.
7 καὶ ἠρώτα τοὺς εὐνούχους Φαραώ, οἳ ἦσαν μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ ἐν τῇ φυλακῇ παρὰ τῷ κυρίῳ αὐτοῦ, λέγων· τί ὅτι τὰ πρόσωπα ὑμῶν σκυθρωπὰ σήμερον;
8 οἱ δὲ εἶπαν αὐτῷ· ἐνύπνιον εἴδομεν, καὶ ὁ συγκρίνων οὐκ ἔστιν αὐτό. εἶπε δὲ αὐτοῖς ᾿Ιωσήφ· οὐχὶ διὰ τοῦ Θεοῦ ἡ διασάφησις αὐτῶν ἐστι; διηγήσασθε οὖν μοι.
9 καὶ διηγήσατο ὁ ἀρχιοινοχόος τὸ ἐνύπνιον αὐτοῦ τῷ ᾿Ιωσὴφ καὶ εἶπεν· ἐν τῷ ὕπνῳ μου ἦν ἄμπελος ἐναντίον μου·
10 ἐν δὲ τῇ ἀμπέλῳ τρεῖς πυθμένες, καὶ αὐτὴ θάλλουσα ἀνενηνοχυῖα βλαστούς· πέπειροι οἱ βότρυες σταφυλῆς.
11 καὶ τὸ ποτήριον Φαραὼ ἐν τῇ χειρί μου· καὶ ἔλαβον τὴν σταφυλὴν καὶ ἐξέθλιψα αὐτὴν εἰς τὸ ποτήριον καὶ ἔδωκα τὸ ποτήριον εἰς τὴν χεῖρα Φαραώ.
12 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ᾿Ιωσήφ· τοῦτο ἡ σύγκρισις αὐτοῦ· οἱ τρεῖς πυθμένες τρεῖς ἡμέραι εἰσίν·
13 ἔτι τρεῖς ἡμέραι καὶ μνησθήσεται Φαραὼ τῆς ἀρχῆς σου καὶ ἀποκαταστήσει σε ἐπί τὴν ἀρχιοινοχοΐαν σου, καὶ δώσεις τὸ ποτήριον Φαραὼ εἰς τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ κατὰ τὴν ἀρχήν σου τὴν προτέραν, ὡς ἦσθα οἰνοχοῶν.
14 ἀλλὰ μνήσθητί μου διὰ σεαυτοῦ, ὅταν εὖ γένηταί σοι, καὶ ποιήσεις ἐν ἐμοὶ ἔλεος καὶ μνησθήσει περὶ ἐμοῦ πρὸς Φαραὼ καὶ ἐξάξεις με ἐκ τοῦ ὀχυρώματος τούτου·
15 ὅτι κλοπῇ ἐκλάπην ἐκ γῆς ῾Εβραίων καὶ ὧδε οὐκ ἐποίησα οὐδέν, ἀλλ᾿ ἐνέβαλόν με εἰς τὸν λάκκον τοῦτον.
16 καὶ εἶδεν ὁ ἀρχισιτοποιός, ὅτι ὀρθῶς συνέκρινε, καὶ εἶπε τῷ ᾿Ιωσήφ· κἀγὼ εἶδον ἐνύπνιον καὶ ᾤμην τρία κανᾶ χονδριτῶν αἴρειν ἐπὶ τῆς κεφαλῆς μου·
17 ἐν δὲ κανῷ τῷ ἐπάνω ἀπὸ πάντων τῶν γενῶν, ὧν Φαραὼ ἐσθίει ἔργον σιτοποιοῦ, καὶ τὰ πετεινὰ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ κατήσθιεν αὐτὰ ἀπὸ τοῦ κανοῦ τοῦ ἐπάνω τῆς κεφαλῆς μου.
18 ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ ᾿Ιωσὴφ εἶπεν αὐτῷ· αὕτη ἡ σύγκρισις αὐτοῦ· τὰ τρία κανᾶ τρεῖς ἡμέραι εἰσίν·
19 ἔτι τριῶν ἡμερῶν καὶ ἀφελεῖ Φαραὼ τὴν κεφαλήν σου ἀπὸ σοῦ καὶ κρεμάσει σε ἐπὶ ξύλου, καὶ φάγεται τὰ ὄρνεα τοῦ οὐρανοῦ τὰς σάρκας σου ἀπὸ σοῦ.
20 ἐγένετο δὲ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ τῇ τρίτῃ, ἡμέρα γενέσεως ἦν Φαραώ, καὶ ἐποίει πότον πᾶσι τοῖς παισὶν αὐτοῦ. καὶ ἐμνήσθη τῆς ἀρχῆς τοῦ οἰνοχόου καὶ τῆς ἀρχῆς τοῦ σιτοποιοῦ ἐν μέσῳ τῶν παίδων αὐτοῦ,
21 καὶ ἀποκατέστησε τὸν ἀρχιοινοχόον ἐπὶ τὴν ἀρχὴν αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἔδωκε τὸ ποτήριον εἰς τὴν χεῖρα Φαραώ,
22 τὸν δὲ ἀρχισιτοποιὸν ἐκρέμασε, καθὰ συνέκρινεν αὐτοῖς ᾿Ιωσήφ.
23 καὶ οὐκ ἐμνήσθη ὁ ἀρχιοινοχόος τοῦ ᾿Ιωσήφ, ἀλλ᾿ ἐπελάθετο αὐτοῦ.
And Jacob heard the words of the sons of Laban, saying, Jacob has taken all that was our father’s, and of our father’s property has he gotten all this glory.
2 And Jacob saw the countenance of Laban, and behold it was not toward him as yesterday, and three days before.
3 And the Lord said to Jacob, Return to the land of thy father, and to thy family, and I will be with thee.
4 And Jacob sent and called Lea and Rachel to the plain where the flocks were.
5 And he said to them, I see the face of your father, that it is not toward me as before, but the God of my father was with me.
6 And ye too know that with all my might I have served your father.
7 But your father deceived me, and changed my wages for the ten lambs, yet God gave him not power to hurt me.
8 If he should say thus, The speckled shall be thy reward, then all the cattle would bear speckled; and if he should say, The white shall be thy reward, then would all the cattle bear white.
9 So God has taken away all the cattle of your father, and given them to me.
10 And it came to pass when the cattle conceived and were with young, that I beheld with mine eyes in sleep, and behold the he-goats and the rams leaping on the sheep and the she-goats, speckled and variegated and spotted with ash-coloured spots.
11 And the angel of God said to me in a dream, Jacob; and I said, What is it?
12 And he said, Look up with thine eyes, and behold the he-goats and the rams leaping on the sheep and the she-goats, speckled and variegated and spotted with ash-coloured spots; for I have seen all things that Laban does to thee.
13 I am God that appeared to thee in the place of God where thou anointedst a pillar to me, and vowedst to me there a vow; now then arise and depart out of this land, depart into the land of thy nativity, and I will be with thee.
14 And Rachel and Lea answered and said to him, Have we yet a part or inheritance in the house of our father?
15 Are we not considered strangers by him? for he has sold us, and quite devoured our money.
16 All the wealth and the glory which God has taken from our father, it shall be our’s and our children’s; now then do whatsoever God has said to thee.
17 And Jacob arose and took his wives and his children up on the camels;
18 and he took away all his possessions and all his store, which he had gotten in Mesopotamia, and all that belonged to him, to depart to Isaac his father in the land of Chanaan.
19 And Laban went to shear his sheep; and Rachel stole her father’s images.
20 And Jacob hid the matter from Laban the Syrian, so as not to tell him that he ran away.
21 And he departed himself and all that belonged to him, and passed over the river, and went into the mountain Galaad.
22 But it was told Laban the Syrian on the third day, that Jacob was fled.
23 And having taken his brethren with him, he pursued after him seven days’ journey, and overtook him on Mount Galaad.
24 And God came to Laban the Syrian in sleep by night, and said to him, Take heed to thyself that thou speak not at any time to Jacob evil things.
25 And Laban overtook Jacob; and Jacob pitched his tent in the mountain; and Laban stationed his brothers in the mount Galaad.
26 And Laban said to Jacob, What hast thou done? wherefore didst thou run away secretly, and pillage me, and lead away my daughters as captives taken with the sword?
27 Whereas if thou hadst told me, I would have sent thee away with mirth, and with songs, and timbrels, and harp.
28 And I was not counted worthy to embrace my children and my daughters; now then thou hast wrought foolishly.
29 And now my hand has power to hurt thee; but the God of thy father spoke to me yesterday, saying, Take heed to thyself that thou speak not evil words to Jacob.
30 Now then go on thy way, for thou hast earnestly desired to depart to the house of thy father; wherefore hast thou stolen my gods?
31 And Jacob answered and said to Laban, Because I was afraid; for I said, Lest at any time thou shouldest take away thy daughters from me, and all my possessions.
32 And Jacob said, With whomsoever thou shalt find thy gods, he shall not live in the presence of our brethren; take notice of what I have of thy property, and take it; and he observed nothing with him, but Jacob knew not that his wife Rachel had stolen them.
33 And Laban went in and searched in the house of Lea, and found them not; and he went out of the house of Lea, and searched in the house of Jacob, and in the house of the two maid-servants, and found them not; and he went also into the house of Rachel.
34 And Rachel took the idols, and cast them among the camel’s packs, and sat upon them.
35 And she said to her father, Be not indignant, Sir; I cannot rise up before thee, for it is with me according to the manner of women. Laban searched in all the house, and found not the images.
36 And Jacob was angry, and strove with Laban; and Jacob answered and said to Laban, What is my injustice, and what my sin, that thou hast pursued after me,
37 and that thou hast searched all the furniture of my house? what hast thou found of all the furniture of thine house? set it here between thy relations and my relations, and let them decide between us two.
38 These twenty years have I been with thee; thy sheep, and thy she-goats have not failed in bearing; I devoured not the rams of thy cattle.
39 That which was taken of beasts I brought not to thee; I made good of myself the thefts of the day, and the thefts of the night.
40 I was parched with heat by day, and chilled with frost by night, and my sleep departed from my eyes.
41 These twenty years have I been in thy house; I served thee fourteen years for thy two daughters, and six years among thy sheep, and thou didst falsely rate my wages for ten lambs.
42 Unless I had the God of my father Abraam, and the fear of Isaac, now thou wouldest have sent me away empty; God saw my humiliation, and the labour of my hands, and rebuked thee yesterday.
43 And Laban answered and said to Jacob, The daughters are my daughters, and the sons my sons, and the cattle are my cattle, and all things which thou seest are mine, and the property of my daughters; what shall I do to them to-day, or their children which they bore?
44 Now then come, let me make a covenant, both I and thou, and it shall be for a witness between me and thee; and he said to him, Behold, there is no one with us; behold, God is witness between me and thee.
45 And Jacob having taken a stone, set it up for a pillar.
46 And Jacob said to his brethren, Gather stones; and they gathered stones and made a heap, and ate there upon the heap;
47 and Laban said to him, This heap witnesses between me and thee to-day.
48 And Laban called it, the Heap of Testimony; and Jacob called it, the Witness Heap. And Laban said to Jacob, Behold this heap, and the pillar, which I have set between me and thee; this heap witnesses, and this pillar witnesses; therefore its name was called, the Heap witnesses.
49 And the vision of which he said—Let God look to it between me and thee, because we are about to depart from each other, —
50 If thou shalt humble my daughters, if thou shouldest take wives in addition to my daughters, see, there is no one with us looking on. God is witness between me and thee.
51 And Laban said to Jacob, Behold, this heap, and this pillar are a witness.
52 For if I should not cross over unto thee, neither shouldest thou cross over to me, for mischief beyond this heap and this pillar.
53 The God of Abraam and the God of Nachor judge between us;
54 and Jacob swore by the Fear of his father Isaac. And he offered a sacrifice in the mountain, and called his brethren, and they ate and drank, and slept in the mountain.
55 And Laban rose up in the morning, and kissed his sons and his daughters, and blessed them; and Laban having turned back, departed to his place.
And Jacob departed for his journey; and having looked up, he saw the host of God encamped; and the angels of God met him.
2 And Jacob said, when he saw them, This is the Camp of God; and he called the name of that place, Encampments.
3 And Jacob sent messengers before him to Esau his brother to the land of Seir, to the country of Edom.
4 And he charged them, saying, Thus shall ye say to my lord Esau: Thus saith thy servant Jacob; I have sojourned with Laban and tarried until now.
5 And there were born to me oxen, and asses, and sheep, and men-servants and women-servants; and I sent to tell my lord Esau, that thy servant might find grace in thy sight.
6 And the messengers returned to Jacob, saying, We came to thy brother Esau, and lo! he comes to meet thee, and four hundred men with him.
7 And Jacob was greatly terrified, and was perplexed; and he divided the people that was with him, and the cows, and the camels, and the sheep, into two camps.
8 And Jacob said, If Esau should come to one camp, and smite it, the other camp shall be in safety.
9 And Jacob said, God of my father Abraam, and God of my father Isaac, O Lord, thou art he that said to me, Depart quickly to the land of thy birth, and I will do thee good.
10 Let there be to me a sufficiency of all the justice and all the truth which thou hast wrought with thy servant; for with this my staff I passed over this Jordan, and now I am become two camps.
11 Deliver me from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau, for I am afraid of him, lest haply he should come and smite me, and the mother upon the children.
12 But thou saidst, I will do thee good, and will make thy seed as the sand of the sea, which shall not be numbered for multitude.
13 And he slept there that night, and took of the gifts which he carried with him, and sent out to Esau his brother,
14 two hundred she-goats, twenty he-goats, two hundred sheep, twenty rams,
15 milch camels, and their foals, thirty, forty kine, ten bulls, twenty asses, and ten colts.
16 And he gave them to his servants each drove apart; and he said to his servants, Go on before me, and put a space between drove and drove.
17 And he charged the first, saying, If Esau my brother meet thee, and he ask thee, saying, Whose art thou? and whither wouldest thou go, and whose are these possessions advancing before thee?
18 Thou shalt say, Thy servant Jacob’s; he hath sent gifts to my lord Esau, and lo! he is behind us.
19 And he charged the first and the second and the third, and all that went before him after these flocks, saying, Thus shall ye speak to Esau when ye find him;
20 and ye shall say, Behold thy servant Jacob comes after us. For he said, I will propitiate his countenance with the gifts going before his presence, and afterwards I will behold his face, for peradventure he will accept me.
21 So the presents went on before him, but he himself lodged that night in the camp.
22 And he rose up in that night, and took his two wives and his two servant-maids, and his eleven children, and crossed over the ford of Jaboch.
23 And he took them, and passed over the torrent, and brought over all his possessions.
24 And Jacob was left alone; and a man wrestled with him till the morning.
25 And he saw that he prevailed not against him; and he touched the broad part of his thigh, and the broad part of Jacob’s thigh was benumbed in his wrestling with him.
26 And he said to him, Let me go, for the day has dawned; but he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.
27 And he said to him, What is thy name? and he answered, Jacob.
28 And he said to him, Thy name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name; for thou hast prevailed with God, and shalt be mighty with men.
29 And Jacob asked and said, Tell me thy name; and he said, Wherefore dost thou ask after my name? and he blessed him there.
30 And Jacob called the name of that place, the Face of God; for, said he,I have seen God face to face, and my life was preserved.
31 And the sun rose upon him, when he passed the Face of God; and he halted upon his thigh.
32 Therefore the children of Israel will by no means eat of the sinew which was benumbed, which is on the broad part of the thigh, until this day, because the angel touched the broad part of the thigh of Jacob—even the sinew which was benumbed.
And Jacob lifted up his eyes, and beheld, and lo! Esau his brother coming, and four hundred men with him; and Jacob divided the children to Lea and to Rachel, and the two handmaidens.
2 And he put the two handmaidens and their children with the first, and Lea and her children behind, and Rachel and Joseph last.
3 But he advanced himself before them, and did reverence to the ground seven times, until he drew near to his brother.
4 And Esau ran on to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck, and kissed him; and they both wept.
5 And Esau looked up and saw the women and the children, and said, What are these to thee? And he said, The children with which God has mercifully blessed thy servant.
6 And the maid-servants and their children drew near and did reverence.
7 And Lea and her children drew near and did reverence; and after this drew near Rachel and Joseph, and did reverence.
8 And he said, What are these things to thee, all these companies that I have met? And he said, That thy servant might find grace in thy sight, my lord.
9 And Esau said, I have much, my brother; keep thine own.
10 And Jacob said, If I have found grace in thy sight, receive the gifts through my hands; therefore have I seen thy face, as if any one should see the face of God, and thou shalt be well-pleased with me.
11 Receive my blessings, which I have brought thee, because God has had mercy on me, and I have all things; and he constrained him, and he took them.
12 And he said, Let us depart, and proceed right onward.
13 And he said to him, My lord knows, that the children are very tender, and the flocks and the herds with me are with young; if then I shall drive them hard one day, all the cattle will die.
14 Let my lord go on before his servant, and I shall have strength on the road according to the ease of the journey before me, and according to the strength of the children, until I come to my lord to Seir.
15 And Esau said, I will leave with thee some of the people who are with me. And he said, Why so? it is enough that I have found favour before thee, my lord.
16 And Esau returned on that day on his journey to Seir.
17 And Jacob departs to his tents; and he made for himself there habitations, and for his cattle he made booths; therefore he called the name of that place, Booths.
18 And Jacob came to Salem, a city of Secima, which is in the land of Chanaan, when he departed out of Mesopotamia of Syria, and took up a position in front of the city.
19 And he bought the portion of the field, where he pitched his tent, of Emmor the father of Sychem, for a hundred lambs.
20 And he set up there an alter, and called on the God of Israel.
And Dina, the daughter of Lea, whom she bore to Jacob, went forth to observe the daughters of the inhabitants.
2 And Sychem the son of Emmor the Evite, the ruler of the land, saw her, and took her and lay with her, and humbled her.
3 And he was attached to the soul of Dina the daughter of Jacob, and he loved the damsel, and he spoke kindly to the damsel.
4 Sychem spoke to Emmor his father, saying, Take for me this damsel to wife.
5 And Jacob heard that the son of Emmor had defiled Dina his daughter (now his sons were with his cattle in the plain). And Jacob was silent until they came.
6 And Emmor the father of Sychem went forth to Jacob, to speak to him.
7 And the sons of Jacob came from the plain; and when they heard, the men were deeply pained, and it was very grievous to them, because the man wrought folly in Israel, having lain with the daughter of Jacob, and so it must not be.
8 And Emmor spoke to them, saying, Sychem my son has chosen in his heart your daughter; give her therefore to him for a wife,
9 and intermarry with us. Give us your daughters, and take our daughters for your sons.
10 And dwell in the midst of us; and, behold, the land is spacious before you, dwell in it, and trade, and get possessions in it.
11 And Sychem said to her father and to her brothers, I would find grace before you, and we will give whatever ye shall name.
12 Multiply your demand of dowry very much, and I will give accordingly as ye shall say to me, only ye shall give me this damsel for a wife.
13 And the sons of Jacob answered to Sychem and Emmor his father craftily, and spoke to them, because they had defiled Dina their sister.
14 And Symeon and Levi, the brothers of Dina, said to them, We shall not be able to do this thing, to give our sister to a man who is uncircumcised, for it is a reproach to us.
15 Only on these terms will we conform to you, and dwell among you, if ye also will be as we are, in that every male of you be circumcised.
16 And we will give our daughters to you, and we will take of your daughters for wives to us, and we will dwell with you, and we will be as one race.
17 But if ye will not hearken to us to be circumcised, we will take our daughter and depart.
18 And the words pleased Emmor, and Sychem the son of Emmor.
19 And the young man delayed not to do this thing, for he was much attached to Jacob’s daughter, and he was the most honourable of all in his father’s house.
20 And Emmor and Sychem his son came to the gate of their city, and spoke to the men of their city, saying,
21 These men are peaceable, let them dwell with us upon the land, and let them trade in it, and behold the land is extensive before them; we will take their daughters to us for wives, and we will give them our daughters.
22 Only on these terms will the men conform to us to dwell with us so as to be one people, if every male of us be circumcised, as they also are circumcised.
23 And shall not their cattle and their herds, and their possessions, be ours? only in this let us conform to them, and they will dwell with us.
24 And all that went in at the gate of their city hearkened to Emmor and Sychem his son, and they were circumcised in the flesh of their foreskin every male.
25 And it came to pass on the third day, when they were in pain, the two sons of Jacob, Symeon and Levi, Dina’s brethren, took each man his sword, and came upon the city securely, and slew every male.
26 And they slew Emmor and Sychem his son with the edge of the sword, and took Dina out of the house of Sychem, and went forth.
27 But the sons of Jacob came upon the wounded, and ravaged the city wherein they had defiled Dina their sister.
28 And their sheep, and their oxen, and their asses they took, and all things whatsoever were in the city, and whatsoever were in the plain.
29 And they took captive all the persons of them, and all their store, and their wives, and plundered both whatever things there were in the city, and whatever things there were in the houses.
30 And Jacob said to Symeon and Levi, Ye have made me hateful so that I should be evil to all the inhabitants of the land, both among the Chananites and the Pherezites, and I am few in number; they will gather themselves against me and cut me in pieces, and I shall be utterly destroyed, and my house.
31 And they said, Nay, but shall they treat our sister as an harlot?
And God said to Jacob, Arise, go up to the place, Baethel, and dwell there; and make there an altar to the God that appeared to thee, when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother.
2 And Jacob said to his house, and to all that were with him, Remove the strange gods that are with you from the midst of you, and purify yourselves, and change your clothes.
3 And let us rise and go up to Baethel, and let us there make an alter to God who hearkened to me in the day of calamity, who was with me, and preserved me throughout in the journey, by which I went.
4 And they gave to Jacob the strange gods, which were in their hands, and the ear-rings which were in their ears, and Jacob hid them under the turpentine tree which is in Secima, and destroyed them to this day.
5 So Israel departed from Secima, and the fear of God was upon the cities round about them, and they did not pursue after the children of Israel.
6 And Jacob came to Luza, which is in the land of Chanaan, which is Baethel, he and all the people that were with him.
7 And he built there an altar, and called the name of the place Baethel; for there God appeared to him, when he fled from the face of his brother Esau.
8 And Deborrha, Rebecca’s nurse, died, and was buried below Baethel under the oak; and Jacob called its name, The Oak of Mourning.
9 And God appeared to Jacob once more in Luza, when he came out of Mesopotamia of Syria, and God blessed him.
10 And God said to him, Thy name shall not be called Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name; and he called his name Israel.
11 And God said to him, I am thy God; increase and multiply; for nations and gatherings of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins.
12 And the land which I gave to Abraam and Isaac, I have given it to thee; and it shall come to pass that I will give this land also to thy seed after thee.
13 And God went up from him from the place where he spoke with him.
14 And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where God spoke with him, even a pillar of stone; and offered a libation upon it, and poured oil upon it.
15 And Jacob called the name of the place in which God spoke with him, Baethel.
16 And Jacob removed from Baethel, and pitched his tent beyond the tower of Gader, and it came to pass when he drew nigh to Chabratha, to enter into Ephratha, Rachel travailed; and in her travail she was in hard labour.
17 And it came to pass in her hard labour, that the midwife said to her, Be of good courage, for thou shalt also have this son.
18 And it came to pass in her giving up the ghost (for she was dying), that she called his name, The son of my pain; but his father called his name Benjamin.
19 So Rachel died, and was buried in the way of the course of Ephratha, this is Bethleem.
20 And Jacob set up a pillar on her tomb; this is the pillar on the tomb of Rachel, until this day.
21 And it came to pass when Israel dwelt in that land, that Ruben went and lay with Balla, the concubine of his father Jacob; and Israel heard, and the thing appeared grievous before him.
22 And the sons of Jacob were twelve.
23 The sons of Lea, the first-born of Jacob; Ruben, Symeon, Levi, Judas, Issachar, Zabulon.
24 And the sons of Rachel; Joseph and Benjamin. 25 And the sons of Balla, the hand-maid of Rachel; Dan and Nephthalim.
26 And the sons of Zelpha, the hand-maid of Lea; Gad and Aser. These are the sons of Jacob, which were born to him in Mesopotamia of Syria.
27 And Jacob came to Isaac his father to Mambre, to a city of the plain; this is Chebron in the land of Chanaan, where Abraam and Isaac sojourned.
28 And the days of Isaac which he lived were an hundred and eighty years.
29 And Isaac gave up the ghost and died, and was laid to his family, old and full of days; and Esau and Jacob his sons buried him.
And these are the generations of Esau; this is Edom.
2 And Esau took to himself wives of the daughters of the Chananites; Ada, the daughter of Ælom the Chettite; and Olibema, daughter of Ana the son of Sebegon, the Evite;
3 and Basemath, daughter of Ismael, sister of Nabaioth.
4 And Ada bore to him Eliphas; and Basemath bore Raguel.
5 And Olibema bore Jeus, and Jeglom, and Core; these are the sons of Esau, which were born to him in the land of Chanaan.
6 And Esau took his wives, and his sons, and his daughters, and all the persons of his house, and all his possessions, and all his cattle, and all that he had got, and all things whatsoever he had acquired in the land of Chanaan; and Esau went forth from the land of Chanaan, from the face of his brother Jacob.
7 For their substance was too great for them to dwell together; and the land of their sojourning could not bear them, because of the abundance of their possessions.
8 And Esau dwelt in mount Seir; Esau, he is Edom.
9 And these are the generations of Esau, the father of Edom in the mount Seir.
10 And these are the names of the sons of Esau. Eliphas, the son of Ada, the wife of Esau; and Raguel, the son of Basemath, wife of Esau.
11 And the sons of Eliphas were Thaeman, Omar, Sophar, Gothom, and Kenez.
12 And Thamna was a concubine of Eliphaz, the son of Esau; and she bore Amalec to Eliphas. These are the sons of Ada, the wife of Esau.
13 And these are the sons of Raguel; Nachoth, Zare, Some, and Moze. These were the sons of Basemath, wife of Esau.
14 And these are the sons of Olibema, the daughter of Ana, the son of Sebegon, the wife of Esau; and she bore to Esau, Jeus, and Jeglom, and Core.
15 These are the chiefs of the son of Esau, even the sons of Eliphas, the first-born of Esau; chief Thaeman, chief Omar, chief Sophar, chief Kenez,
16 chief Core, chief Gothom, chief Amalec. These are the chiefs of Eliphas, in the land of Edom; these are the sons of Ada.
17 And these are the sons of Raguel, the son of Esau; chief Nachoth, chief Zare, chief Some, chief Moze. These are the chiefs of Raguel, in the land of Edom; these are the sons of Basemath, wife of Esau.
18 And these are the sons of Olibema, wife of Esau; chief Jeus, chief Jeglom, chief Core. These are the chiefs of Olibema, daughter of Ana, wife of Esau.
19 These are the sons of Esau, and these are the chiefs; these are the sons of Edom.
20 And these are the sons of Seir, the Chorrhite, who inhabited the land; Lotan, Sobal, Sebegon, Ana,
21 and Deson, and Asar, and Rison. These are the chiefs of the Chorrhite, the son of Seir, in the land of Edom.
22 And the sons of Lotan were Chorrhi and Haeman; and the sister of Lotan, Thamna.
23 And these are the sons of Sobal; Golam, and Manachath, and Gaebel, and Sophar, and Omar.
24 And these are the sons of Sebegon; Aie, and Ana; this is the Ana who found Jamin in the wilderness, when he tended the beasts of his father Sebegon.
25 And these are the sons of Ana; Deson—and Olibema was daughter of Ana.
26 And these are the sons of Deson; Amada, and Asban, and Ithran, and Charrhan.
27 And these are the sons of Asar; Balaam, and Zucam, and Jucam.
28 And these are the sons of Rison; Hos, and Aran.
29 And these are the chiefs of Chorri; chief Lotan, chief Sobal, chief Sebegon, chief Ana,
30 chief Deson, chief Asar, chief Rison. These are the chiefs of Chorri, in their principalities in the land of Edom.
31 these are the kings which reigned in Edom, before a king reigned in Israel.
32 And Balac, son of Beor, reigned in Edom; and the name of his city was Dennaba.
33 And Balac died; and Jobab, son of Zara, from Bosorrha reigned in his stead.
34 And Jobab died; and Asom, from the land of the Thaemanites, reigned in his stead.
35 And Asom died; and Adad son of Barad, who cut off Madiam in the plain of Moab, ruled in his stead; and the name of his city was Getthaim.
36 And Adad died; and Samada of Massecca reigned in his stead.
37 Samada died; and Saul of Rhooboth by the river reigned in his stead.
38 And Saul died; and Ballenon the son of Achobor reigned in his stead.
39 And Ballenon the son of Achobor died; and Arad the son of Barad reigned in his stead; and the name of his city was Phogor; and the name of his wife was Metebeel, daughter of Matraith, son of Maizoob.
40 These are the names of the chiefs of Esau, in their tribes, according to their place, in their countries, and in their nations; chief Thamna, chief Gola, chief Jether,
41 chief Olibema, chief Helas, chief Phinon,
42 chief Kenez, chief Thaeman, chief Mazar,
43 chief Magediel, chief Zaphoin. These are the chiefs of Edom in their dwelling-places in the land of their possession; this is Esau, the father of Edom.
And Jacob dwelt in the land where his father sojourned, in the land of Chanaan.
2 And these are the generations of Jacob. And Joseph was seventeen years old, feeding the sheep of his father with his brethren, being young; with the sons of Balla, and with the sons of Zelpha, the wives of his father; and Joseph brought to Israel their father their evil reproach.
3 And Jacob loved Joseph more than all his sons, because he was to him the son of old age; and he made for him a coat of many colours.
4 And his brethren having seen that his father loved him more than all his sons, hated him, and could not speak anything peaceable to him.
5 And Joseph dreamed a dream, and reported it to his brethren.
6 And he said to them, Hear this dream which I have dreamed.
7 I thought ye were binding sheaves in the middle of the field, and my sheaf stood up and was erected, and your sheaves turned round, and did obeisance to my sheaf.
8 And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us, or shalt thou indeed be lord over us? And they hated him still more for his dreams and for his words.
9 And he dreamed another dream, and related it to his father, and to his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed another dream: as it were the sun, and the moon, and the eleven stars did me reverence.
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.
21 And Ruben having heard it, rescued him out of their hands, and said, Let us not kill him.
22 And Ruben said to them, Shed not blood; cast him into one of these pits in the wilderness, but do not lay your hands upon him; that he might rescue him out of their hands, and restore him to his father.
23 And it came to pass, when Joseph came to his brethren, that they stripped Joseph of his many-coloured coat that was upon him.
24 And they took him and cast him into the pit; and the pit was empty, it had not water.
25 And they sat down to eat bread; and having lifted up their eyes they beheld, and lo, Ismaelitish travellers came from Galaad, and their camels were heavily loaded with spices, and resin, and myrrh; and they went to bring them to Egypt.
26 And Judas said to his brethren, What profit is it if we slay our brother, and conceal his blood?
27 Come, let us sell him to these Ismaelites, but let not our hands be upon him, because he is our brother and our flesh; and his brethren hearkened.
28 And the men, the merchants of Madian, went by, and they drew and lifted Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ismaelites for twenty pieces of gold; and they brought Joseph down into Egypt.
29 And Ruben returned to the pit, and sees not Joseph in the pit; and he rent his garments.
30 And he returned to his brethren and said, The boy is not; and I, whither am I yet to go?
31 And having taken the coat of Joseph, they slew a kid of the goats, and stained the coat with the blood.
32 And they sent the coat of many colours; and they brought it to their father, and said, This have we found; know if it be thy son’s coat or no.
33 And he recognised it, and said, It is my son’s coat, an evil wild beast has devoured him; a wild beast has carried off Joseph.
34 And Jacob rent his clothes, and put sackcloth on his loins, and mourned for his son many days.
35 And all his sons and his daughters gathered themselves together, and came to comfort him; but he would not be comforted, saying, I will go down to my son mourning to Hades; and his father wept for him.
36 And the Madianites sold Joseph into Egypt; to Petephres, the eunuch of Pharao, the chief cook.
And it came to pass at that time that Judas went down from his brethren, and came as far as to a certain man of Odollam, whose name was Iras.
2 And Judas saw there the daughter of a Chananitish man, whose name was Sava; and he took her, and went in to her.
3 And she conceived and bore a son, and called his name, Er.
4 And she conceived and bore a son again; and called his name, Aunan.
5 And she again bore a son; and called his name, Selom: and she was in Chasbi when she bore them.
6 And Judas took a wife for Er his first-born, whose name was Thamar.
7 And Er, the first-born of Judas, was wicked before the Lord; and God killed him.
8 And Judas said to Aunan, Go in to thy brother’s wife, and marry her as her brother-in-law, and raise up seed to thy brother.
9 And Aunan, knowing that the seed should not be his—it came to pass when he went in to his brother’s wife, that he spilled it upon the ground, so that he should not give seed to his brother’s wife.
10 And his doing this appeared evil before God; and he slew him also.
11 And Judas said to Thamar, his daughter-in-law, Sit thou a widow in the house of thy father-in-law, until Selom my son be grown; for he said, lest he also die as his brethren; and Thamar departed, and sat in the house of her father.
12 And the days were fulfilled, and Sava the wife of Judas died; and Judas, being comforted, went to them that sheared his sheep, himself and Iras his Shepherd the Odollamite, to Thamna.
13 And it was told Thamar his daughter-in-law, saying, Behold, thy father-in-law goeth up to Thamna, to shear his sheep.
14 And having taken off the garments of her widowhood from her, she put on a veil, and ornamented her face, and sat by the gates of Ænan, which is in the way to Thamna, for she saw that Selom was grown; but he gave her not to him for a wife.
15 And when Judas saw her, he thought her to be a harlot; for she covered her face, and he knew her not.
16 And he went out of his way to her, and said to her, Let me come in to thee; for he knew not that she was his daughter-in-law; and she said, What wilt thou give me if thou shouldest come in to me?
17 And he said, I will send thee a kid of the goats from my flock; and she said, Well, if thou wilt give me an earnest, until thou send it.
18 And he said, What is the earnest that I shall give thee? and she said, Thy ring, and thy bracelet, and the staff in thy hand; and he gave them to her, and went in to her, and she conceived by him.
19 And she arose and departed, and took her veil from off her, and put on the garments of her widowhood.
20 And Judas sent the kid of the goats by the hand of his shepherd the Odollamite, to receive the pledge from the woman; and he found her not.
21 And he asked the men of the place, Where is the harlot who was in Ænan by the way-side? and they said, There was no harlot here.
22 And he returned to Judas, and said, I have not found her; and the men of the place say, There is no harlot here.
23 And Judas said, Let her have them, but let us not be ridiculed; I sent this kid, but thou hast not found her.
24 And it came to pass after three months, that it was told Judas, saying, Thamar thy daughter-in-law has grievously played the harlot, and behold she is with child by whoredom; and Judas said, Bring her out, and let her be burnt.
25 And as they were bringing her, she sent to her father-in-law, saying, I am with child by the man whose these things are; and she said, See whose is this ring and bracelet and staff.
26 And Judas knew them, and said, Thamar is cleared rather than I, forasmuch as I gave her not to Selom my son: and he knew her not again.
27 And it came to pass when she was in labour, that she also had twins in her womb.
28 And it came to pass as she was bringing forth, one thrust forth his hand, and the midwife having taken hold of it, bound upon hid hand a scarlet thread, saying, This one shall come out first.
29 And when he drew back his hand, then immediately came forth his brother; and she said, Why has the barrier been cut through because of thee? and she called his name, Phares.
30 And after this came forth his brother, on whose hand was the scarlet thread; and she called his name, Zara.
And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Petephres the eunuch of Pharao, the chief cook, an Egyptian, bought him of the hands of the Ismaelites, who brought him down thither.
2 And the Lord was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house with his lord the Egyptian.
3 And his master knew that the Lord was with him, and the Lord prospers in his hands whatsoever he happens to do.
4 And Joseph found grace in the presence of his lord, and was well-pleasing to him; and he set him over his house, and all that he had he gave into the hand of Joseph.
5 And it came to pass after that he was set over his house, and over all that he had, that the Lord blessed the house of the Egyptian for Joseph’s sake; and the blessing of the Lord was on all his possessions in the house, and in his field.
6 And he committed all that he had into the hands of Joseph; and he knew not of anything that belonged to him, save the bread which he himself ate. And Joseph was handsome in form, and exceedingly beautiful in countenance.
7 And it came to pass after these things, that his master’s wife cast her eyes upon Joseph, and said, Lie with me.
8 But he would not; but said to his master’s wife, If because of me my master knows nothing in his house, and has given into my hands all things that belong to him:
9 and in this house there is nothing above me, nor has anything been kept back from me, but thou, because thou art his wife—how then shall I do this wicked thing, and sin against God?
10 And when she talked with Joseph day by day, and he hearkened not to her to sleep with her, so as to be with her,
11 it came to pass on a certain day, that Joseph went into the house to do his business, and there was no one of the household within.
12 And she caught hold of him by his clothes, and said, Lie with me; and having left his clothes in her hands, he fled, and went forth.
13 And it came to pass, when she saw that he had left his clothes in her hands, and fled, and gone forth,
14 that she called those that were in the house, and spoke to them, saying, See, he has brought in to us a Hebrew servant to mock us—he came in to me, saying, Lie with me, and I cried with a loud voice.
15 And when he heard that I lifted up my voice and cried, having left his clothes with me, he fled, and went forth out.
16 So she leaves the clothes by her, until the master came to his house.
17 And she spoke to him according to these words, saying, The Hebrew servant, whom thou broughtest in to us, came in to me to mock me, and said to me, I will lie with thee.
18 And when he heard that I lifted up my voice and cried, having left his clothes with me, he fled and departed forth.
19 And it came to pass, when his master heard all the words of his wife, that she spoke to him, saying,
Thus did thy servant to me, that he was very angry.
20 And his master took Joseph, and cast him into the prison, into the place where the king’s prisoners are kept, there in the prison.
21 And the Lord was with Joseph, and poured down mercy upon him; and he gave him favour in the sight of the chief keeper of the prison.
22 And the chief keeper of the prison gave the prison into the hand of Joseph, and all the prisoners as many as were in the prison; and all things whatsoever they do there, he did them.
23 Because of him the chief keeper of the prison knew nothing, for all things were in the hand of Joseph, because the Lord was with him; and whatever things he did, the Lord made them to prosper in his hands.
And it came to pass after these things, that the chief cupbearer of the king of Egypt and the chief baker trespassed against their lord the king of Egypt.
2 And Pharao was wroth with his two eunuchs, with his chief cupbearer, and with his chief baker.
3 And he put them in ward, into the prison, into the place whereinto Joseph had been led.
4 And the chief keeper of the prison committed them to Joseph, and he stood by them; and they were some days in the prison.
5 And they both had a dream in one night; and the vision of the dream of the chief cupbearer and chief baker, who belonged to the king of Egypt, who were in the prison, was this.
6 Joseph went in to them in the morning, and saw them, and they had been troubled.
7 And he asked the eunuchs of Pharao who were with him in the prison with his master, saying, Why is it that your countenances are sad to-day?
8 And they said to him, We have seen a dream, and there is no interpreter of it. And Joseph said to them, Is not the interpretation of them through god? tell them than to me.
9 And the chief cupbearer related his dream to Joseph, and said, In my dream a vine was before me.
10 And in the vine were three stems; and it budding shot forth blossoms; the clusters of grapes were ripe.
11 And the cup of Pharao was in my hand; and I took the bunch of grapes, and squeezed it into the cup, and gave the cup into Pharao’s hand.
12 And Joseph said to him, This is the interpretation of it. The three stems are three days.
13 Yet three days and Pharao shall remember thy office, and he shall restore thee to thy place of chief cupbearer, and thou shalt give the cup of Pharao into his hand, according to thy former high place, as thou wast wont to be cupbearer.
14 But remember me of thyself, when it shall be well with thee, and thou shalt deal mercifully with me, and thou shalt make mention of me to Pharao, and thou shalt bring me forth out of this dungeon.
15 For surely I was stolen away out of the land of the Hebrews, and here I have done nothing, but they have cast me into this pit.
16 And the chief baker saw that he interpreted aright; and he said to Joseph, I also saw a dream, and methought I took up on my head three baskets of mealy food.
17 And in the upper basket there was the work of the baker of every kind which Pharao eats; and the fowls of the air ate them out of the basket that was on my head.
18 And Joseph answered and said to him, This is the interpretation of it; The three baskets are three days.
19 Yet three days, and Pharao shall take away thy head from off thee, and shall hang thee on a tree, and the birds of the sky shall eat thy flesh from off thee.
20 And it came to pass on the third day that it was Pharao’s birth-day, and he made a banquet for all his servants, and he remembered the office of the cupbearer and the office of the baker in the midst of his servants.
21 And he restored the chief cupbearer to his office, and he gave the cup into Pharao’s hand.
22 And he hanged the chief baker, as Joseph, interpreted to them.
23 Yet did not the chief cupbearer remember Joseph, but forgot him.
