Sura Yusuf from 5 to 14

5. He ( the father ) said: « O my son! Relate not your vision to your brothers, lest they should arrange a plot against you. Verily! Shaitân ( Satan ) is to man an open enemy!»
6. « Thus will your Lord choose you and teach you the interpretation of dreams ( and other things ) and perfect His Favour on you and on the offspring of Ya‘qûb ( Jacob ) , as He perfected it on your fathers, Ibrâhîm ( Abraham ) and Ishâq ( Isaac ) aforetime! Verily, your Lord is All- Knowing, All- Wise. »
7. Verily, in Yûsuf ( Joseph ) and his brethren, there were Ayât ( proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc. ) for those who ask.
8. When they said: « Truly, Yûsuf ( Joseph ) and his brother ( Benjamin ) are dearer to our father than we, while we are a strong group. Really, our father is in a plain error.»
9. « Kill Yûsuf ( Joseph ) or cast him out to some ( other ) land, so that the favour of your father may be given to you alone, and after that you will be righteous folk ( by intending repentance before committing the sin ) . »
10. One from among them said: « Kill not Yûsuf ( Joseph ) , but if you must do something, throw him down to the bottom of a well; he will be picked up by some caravan of travellers. »
11. They said: « O our father! Why do you not trust us with Yûsuf ( Joseph ) though we are indeed his well- wishers? »
12. « Send him with us tomorrow to enjoy himself and play, and verily, we will take care of him. »
13. He [ Ya‘qûb ( Jacob ) ] said: « Truly, it saddens me that you should take him away. I fear lest a wolf should devour him, while you are careless of him. »
14. They said: « If a wolf devours him, while we are a strong group ( to guard him ) , then surely, we are the losers. »
