Genesis 37:31-33New American Standard Bible (NASB)
31 So they took Joseph’s tunic, and slaughtered a male goat and dipped the tunic in the blood;32 and they sent the varicolored tunic and brought it to their father and said, “We found this; please [a]examine it to see whether it is your son’s tunic or not.”33 Then he [b]examined it and said, “It is my son’s tunic. A wild beast has devoured him; Joseph has surely been torn to pieces!”
