Biblical Limericks: Who Sold Joseph to Whom?

The elder sons of Father Israel,
in a moment less than filial,
sold their brother Jacob
to the first passing mob,
who were, by chance, the sons of Ishmael.

But wait a minute, that isn’t right,
there’s a slight contradiction in sight -
In one of these lines I
read he was rescued by
a caravan of Midianites.

Genesis 37: 28, 36 / 39: 1
