Kill Joseph or cast him out to some ˹distant˺ land so that our father’s attention will be only ours, then after that you may ˹repent and˺ become righteous people!” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
One of them said, “Do not kill Joseph. But if you must do something, throw him into the bottom of a well so perhaps he may be picked up by some travellers.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
They said, “O our father! Why do you not trust us with Joseph, although we truly wish him well? Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
Send him out with us tomorrow so that he may enjoy himself and play. And we will really watch over him.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

They said, “If a wolf were to devour him, despite our strong group, then we would certainly be losers!” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

Then they returned to their father in the evening, weeping. Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
They cried, “Our father! We went racing and left Joseph with our belongings, and a wolf devoured him! But you will not believe us, no matter how truthful we are.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran

And they brought his shirt, stained with false blood.1 He responded, “No! Your souls must have tempted you to do something ˹evil˺. So ˹I can only endure with˺ beautiful patience!2 It is Allah’s help that I seek to bear your claims.” Dr. Mustafa Khattab, the Clear Quran
