Bible: Genesis 37:29-35
37:29 Later Reuben returned to the cistern to find that Joseph was not in it! 1 He tore his clothes, 37:30 returned to his brothers, and said, “The boy isn’t there! And I, where can I go?” 37:31 So they took Joseph’s tunic, killed a young goat, 2 and dipped the tunic in the blood. 37:32 Then they brought the special tunic to their father 3 and said, “We found this. Determine now whether it is your son’s tunic or not.”
37:33 He recognized it and exclaimed, “It is my son’s tunic! A wild animal has eaten him! 4 Joseph has surely been torn to pieces!” 37:34 Then Jacob tore his clothes, put on sackcloth, 5 and mourned for his son many days. 37:35 All his sons and daughters stood by 6 him to console him, but he refused to be consoled. “No,” he said, “I will go to the grave mourning my son.” 7 So Joseph’s 8 father wept for him.
