Bible Commentary for Genesis 37:1

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 37:1


37:2 These are the generations of Jacob - It is not a barren genealogy, as those of Esau, but a memorable useful history. Joseph brought to his father their evil report - Jacob's sons did that when they were from under his eye, which they durst not have done if they had been at home with him; but Joseph gave his father an account of their ill carriage, that he might reprove and restrain them.

37:3 He made him a coat of divers colours - Which probably was significant of farther honours intended him.
