1 I now confess my sin, children, that frequently I wanted to kill him; to the depth of my soul I hated him, because I hated him from my heart.

2 Moreover, I hated him yet more for his dreams, and I wanted to gobble him from among the living as an ox gobbles up grass from the ground.

3 And Yahuḏah sold him secretly to the Yishma’ĕlites for thirty pieces of gold; he hid ten pieces and showed only the twenty to our brothers.

4 In this way the Elohim of my fathers rescued him from my hands so that I might not perform a torahless deed in Yisra’ĕl.
