Joseph and Potiphar's Wife
1Now the Ishmaelites had taken Joseph to Egypt and sold him to Potiphar, one of the king's officers, who was the captain of the palace guard. 2#Acts 7.9The LORD was with Joseph and made him successful. He lived in the house of his Egyptian master, 3who saw that the LORD was with Joseph and had made him successful in everything he did. 4Potiphar was pleased with him and made him his personal servant; so he put him in charge of his house and everything he owned. 5From then on, because of Joseph the LORD blessed the household of the Egyptian and everything that he had in his house and in his fields. 6Potiphar handed over everything he had to the care of Joseph and did not concern himself with anything except the food he ate.
Joseph was well-built and good-looking, 7and after a while his master's wife began to desire Joseph and asked him to go to bed with her. 8He refused and said to her, “Look, my master does not have to concern himself with anything in the house, because I am here. He has put me in charge of everything he has. 9I have as much authority in this house as he has, and he has not kept back anything from me except you. How then could I do such an immoral thing and sin against God?” 10Although she asked Joseph day after day, he would not go to bed with her.
11But one day when Joseph went into the house to do his work, none of the house servants was there. 12She caught him by his robe and said, “Come to bed with me.” But he escaped and ran outside, leaving his robe in her hand. 13When she saw that he had left his robe and had run out of the house, 14she called to her house servants and said, “Look at this! This Hebrew that my husband brought to the house is insulting us. He came into my room and tried to rape me, but I screamed as loud as I could. 15When he heard me scream, he ran outside, leaving his robe beside me.”
16She kept his robe with her until Joseph's master came home. 17Then she told him the same story: “That Hebrew slave that you brought here came into my room and insulted me. 18But when I screamed, he ran outside, leaving his robe beside me.”
19Joseph's master was furious 20and had Joseph arrested and put in the prison where the king's prisoners were kept, and there he stayed. 21#Acts 7.9But the LORD was with Joseph and blessed him, so that the jailer was pleased with him. 22He put Joseph in charge of all the other prisoners and made him responsible for everything that was done in the prison. 23The jailer did not have to look after anything for which Joseph was responsible, because the LORD was with Joseph and made him succeed in everything he did.

1And Yosef (Increaser; May God the Powerful One add [Yah]) was brought down to Mitzrayim [Egypt] (Double Distress or Double Stronghold, Black Land); and Potifar (He Whom The Ra Gave, Priest of the Bull, belonging to the sun), an officer of Pharaoh (Great House), captain of the guard, an Mitzrayimot (People of the Black Land), bought him of the hands of the Yishma’elim (They Will Hear God [EL]), which had brought him down there.
2And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) was with Yosef (Increaser; May God the Powerful One add [Yah]), and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Mitzrayimot.
3And his master saw that the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) [was] with him, and that the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) made all that he did to prosper in his hand.
4And Yosef found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all [that] he had he put into his hand.
5And it came to pass from the time [that] he had made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) the Mitzrayimi house for Yosef’s sake; and the blessing of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) was upon all that he had in the house, and in the field.
6And he left all that he had in Yosef’s (Increaser; May God the Powerful One add [Yah]) hand; and he knew not ought he had, save the bread which he did eat. And Yosef was [a] goodly [person], and well favoured.
7And it came to pass after these things, that his master’s wife cast her eyes upon Yosef; and she said, Lie with me.
8But he refused, and said unto his master’s wife, Behold, my master knows not what [is] with me in the house, and he has committed all that he has to my hand;
9 [There is] none greater in this house than I; neither has he kept back anything from me but youi, because youi [are] his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered]?
10And it came to pass, as she spoke to Yosef day by day, that he listened not unto her, to lie by her, [or] to be with her.
11And it came to pass about this time, that [Yosef] went into the house to do his business; and [there was] none of the men of the house there within.
12And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.
13And it came to pass, when she saw that he had left his garment in her hand, and was fled forth,
14That she called unto the men of her house, and spoke unto them, saying, See, he has brought in an Hebrew unto us to mock us; he came in unto me to lie with me, and I cried with a loud voice:
15And it came to pass, when he heard that I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled, and got him out.
16And she laid up his garment by her, until his lord came home.
17And she spoke unto him according to these words, saying, The Hebrew servant, which youi have brought unto us, came in unto me to mock me:
18And it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled out.
19And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his wife, which she spoke unto him, saying, After this manner did youri servant to me; that his wrath was kindled.
20And Yosef’s (Increaser; May God the Powerful One add [Yah]) master took him, and put him into the prison, a place where the king’s prisoners [were] bound: and he was there in the prison.
21But the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) was with Yosef, and showed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.
22And the keeper of the prison committed to Yosef’s hand all the prisoners that [were] in the prison; and whatsoever they did there, he was the doer [of it].
23The keeper of the prison looked not to anything [that was] under his hand; because the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) was with him, and [that] which he did, the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) made [it] to prosper.
