The jealousy of Joseph's brothers reaches an apex when they plot to murder him. Reuben's plans to save Joseph fail, and he ends up as a slave in Egypt.

Meanwhile, Joseph's brothers dip his ornate coat in goat blood, leading his father to believe a wild beast has devoured his favorite son. Israel vows to mourn for the rest of his life.
