 37:21
 37:22
37:22 Reuben tried to reason with his brothers. 'Don't commit bloodshed. You can throw him into this well in the desert, and you won't have to lay a hand on him.' His plan was to rescue [Joseph] from [his brothers] and bring him back to his father.
Vayomer alehem Re'uven al-tishpechu-dam hashlichu oto el-habor hazeh asher bamidbar veyad al-tishlechu-vo lema'an hatsil oto miyadam lahashivo el-aviv.



Commentary:

well
  A well that had been dug, but had come out dry (Tzava'ath Zebulun 2:7). Alternatively 'pit' or 'cistern.'
