Reading the Bible Very Slowly : Vayeshev, וַיֵּשֶׁב (And he settled), Genesis 37:1-40:23

+ Attending

Vayeshev, Vayeishev, or Vayesheb (וַיֵּשֶׁב — Hebrew for “and he lived,” the first word of the parashah) is the ninth weekly Torah portion (פָּרָשָׁה, parashah) in the annual Jewish cycle of Torah reading. It constitutes Genesis 37:1–40:23. The parashah is made up of 5,972 Hebrew letters, 1,558 Hebrew words, and 112 verses, and can occupy about 190 lines in a Torah Scroll (סֵפֶר תּוֹרָה, Sefer Torah).[1] Jews read it the ninth Sabbath after Simchat Torah, generally in December.

The parashah tells the stories of how Jacob’s other sons sold Joseph into captivity in Egypt, of how Judah wronged his daughter-in-law Tamar and discovered his transgression, and how Joseph served Potiphar and was imprisoned when falsely accused of assaulting Potiphar’s wife.
