God descend upon us. I have good counsel to give you.
Yonder passeth by a travelling company of Ishmaelites on
their way to Egypt. Come and let us sell him to the Ishmaelites,
and let not our hand be upon him. The Ishmaelites
will take him with them upon their journeyings, and he
will be lost among the peoples of the earth.[47] Let us follow
the custom of former days, for Canaan, too, the son of Ham,
was made a slave for his evil deeds, and so will we do with
our brother Joseph."[48]
