Bible: Gen 37:12-17

37:12 When his brothers had gone to graze their father’s flocks near Shechem, 37:13 Israel said to Joseph, “Your brothers 1  are grazing the flocks near Shechem. Come, I will send you to them.” “I’m ready,” 2  Joseph replied. 3  37:14 So Jacob 4  said to him, “Go now and check on 5  the welfare 6  of your brothers and of the flocks, and bring me word.” So Jacob 7  sent him from the valley of Hebron.

37:15 When Joseph reached Shechem, 8  a man found him wandering 9  in the field, so the man asked him, “What are you looking for? 37:16 He replied, “I’m looking for my brothers. Please tell 10  me where they are grazing their flocks.” 37:17 The man said, “They left this area, 11  for I heard them say, ‘Let’s go to Dothan.’” So Joseph went after his brothers and found them at Dothan.
