This is brilliant. And also the only time we see a really large family in the Bible, the older siblings all gang up to sell one of the younger ones into slavery anyway, so... not ideal.

Of course, out of the very first two kids, we also get the first murderer, so the Bible is clearly also saying that children are horrible and should be avoided,
