Be At Peace With Your Brethren
How terrified Joseph must have been when his own flesh and blood grabbed him and tore off his precious coat of many colors.
The brothers mobbed him and threw him in a waterless pit. They left him alone in the dark.
After they did their terrible deed, his brothers shamelessly ate their meal without any remorse. Their hearts were hardened like flints of stones.
So it came to pass when Joseph had come to his brothers, that they stripped Joseph of his tunic, the tunic of many colors that was on him. Then they took him and cast him into a pit. And the pit was empty; there was no water in it. (Genesis 37:23-24)
