r: Priests pay Judas
We read in the thirty-seventh chapter of Genesis that the brothers of Joseph sold him to the Ishmaelites for thirty pieces of silver. This Joseph, a just man, was sold by his brothers, though innocent, and is a type of Christ, who, though innocent, was sold by Judas (who sold Christ Himself to the Jews) for thirty pieces of silver; and these are the thirty pence for which Joseph was sold, one of which is worth ten ordinary pence.
We read in the thirty-ninth chapter of Genesis that when the Ishhmaelites who had bought Joseph came into their own country with Joseph, they sold him in Egypt to the captain of the king's guard, whose name was Potiphar: this boy Joseph is a type of Christ, who was sold by the impious Judas.
(Ps. 109.8). Let his days be few, and let another take his bishopric. Proverbs 16.30. He shutteth his eyes to devise froward things.

That boy (Joseph) who was sold typifies Thee, O Christ. Whatever is done against Joseph applies to Christ.
