The Trade-off

If I sell my brother to another for twenty pieces of silver,

what good can come of it?

For it’s not my brother I am selling, but my soul,

he is but currency, and now I am chattel.

 

And my soul remains priceless.

 

 

 

Book of Genesis

“They sold Joseph to the Ishmaelites for twenty pieces of silver.”
