Genesis 37:19-20

Context
37:19 They said to one another, “Here comes this master of dreams! 1  37:20 Come now, let’s kill him, throw him into one of the cisterns, and then say that a wild 2  animal ate him. Then we’ll see how his dreams turn out!” 3 

1 tn Heb “Look, this master of dreams is coming.” The brothers’ words have a sarcastic note and indicate that they resent his dreams.

2 tn The Hebrew word can sometimes carry the nuance “evil,” but when used of an animal it refers to a dangerous wild animal.

3 tn Heb “what his dreams will be.”
