1 These two dreams I recounted to my father, and he replied, These things must be fulfilled at their appropriate time, once Yisra’ĕl has endured many things.

2 Then my father said, I believe that Yosĕph is alive, for I continually see that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 includes him in the number with you.

3 And he kept saying tearfully, You live, Yosĕph, my son, and I do not see you, nor do you behold Ya’aqoḇ who begot you.

4 He made me shed tears by these words of his. I was burning inwardly with compassion to tell him that Yosĕph had been sold, but I was afraid of my brothers.
