New Defender's Study Bible Notes
37:10 he told it. Whether Joseph’s two dreams were from God or a product of his own pride is a question. They were only fulfilled in part–his father and deceased mother never bowed down to him. In any event, it was unwise and rather arrogant of him to tell them to his family. It was specifically because of these dreams that his brothers decided to slay him (Genesis 37:19-20). Nevertheless, God worked all this together for good (Romans 8:28). Joseph’s pride, as well as the anger and carnality of his brothers, all needed to be changed before God would deem them ready to found his chosen nation.
