lAnd Joseph['dʒəuzif] said unto his brethren[‘brəðrən], I am Joseph; dothmy father yet live? And his brethren could not answer him; for they were troubled at his presence.
Why Joseph's brothers were troubled at his presence?
They had done something wrong to Joseph - sold him into slavery.
Joseph's brothers were upset being with Joseph. It was Joseph's presence that bothered them.
Jed - not bad for an atheist!
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

Besides, I saw Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat'.
