Bible Reference & Cartoon Description

Genesis 37:32-35 (NLT)
32 They sent the beautiful robe to their father with this message: “Look at what we found. Doesn’t this robe belong to your son?”
33 Their father recognized it immediately. “Yes,” he said, “it is my son’s robe. A wild animal must have eaten him. Joseph has clearly been torn to pieces!” 34 Then Jacob tore his clothes and dressed himself in burlap. He mourned deeply for his son for a long time. 35 His family all tried to comfort him, but he refused to be comforted. “I will go to my grave [1] mourning for my son,” he would say, and then he would weep.

[1]

Bible Doctrine Notes
37:34-35 HUMANITY, Attitudes towards Death (2.44D)

Deep, inner grief is often shown outwardly; in Old Testament times grief was often displayed by tearing of clothes, wearing sackcloth & even pouring dirt or ash on your own head. Grief can be so profound that as to almost bring death to the mourner. Death will unite loved ones in the common experience of the grave. The New Testament offers genuine hope to those grieving. (see 1 Corinthians 15:54-57).

37:35 LAST THINGS, Intermediate State (4.62C)
(See note on Isaiah 14:9).
