In Genesis 49 when Jacob blesses his sons it is said of Joseph that the archers bitterly attacked and shot at him
Genesis 49:23 NASB
“The archers bitterly attacked him, And shot at him and harassed him;
In the preceding chapters it is said that Joseph had brought a bad report about the sons of Bilhah and Zilphah and the brothers plotted to kill him.
Genesis 37 NASB
2 These are the records of the generations of Jacob.
Joseph, when seventeen years of age, was pasturing the flock with his brothers while he was still a youth, along with the sons of Bilhah and the sons of Zilpah, his father’s wives. And Joseph brought back a bad report about them to their father.20 Now then, come and let us kill him and throw him into one of the pits; and we will say, ‘A wild beast devoured him.’ Then let us see what will become of his dreams!”
The brothers are said to have plotted to kill him but their move was thwarted by Reuben who suggested they throw him into the pit and Judah who later suggested they sell him to the Ishmaelites
Could the archers have been specifically the sons of the handmaids?
