YOSĔPH 11 (Joseph 11)

1 You, therefore, my children, in every act keep the reverence of Elohim before your eyes and honor your brothers. For everyone who does the Torah of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will be loved by Him.

2 As I was going with the Yishma’ĕlites, they kept asking me, Are you a slave? And I replied, I am a home-born slave, so as not to disgrace my brothers.

3 The greatest of them said to me, You are not a slave; even your appearance discloses that. But I told them that I was a slave.

4 As we were reaching Mitsrayim they began to squabble over me as to which of them would put up the money and take me.

5 Accordingly it seemed good to all of them that I should be left in Mitsrayim with a trader handling their trading post until they returned bringing their merchandise.

6 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 granted me favor in the eyes of the trader and he entrusted me with his household.

7 And Elohim baraḵ him by my hand, and he prospered in gold and silver and in business. And I was with him three months and five days.
