Genesis 39

39
1And Joseph hath been brought down to Egypt, and Potiphar, a eunuch of Pharaoh, head of the executioners, an Egyptian man, buyeth him out of the hands of the Ishmaelites who have brought him thither.
2And Jehovah is with Joseph, and he is a prosperous man, and he is in the house of his lord the Egyptian,
3and his lord seeth that Jehovah is with him, and all that he is doing Jehovah is causing to prosper in his hand,
4and Joseph findeth grace in his eyes and serveth him, and he appointeth him over his house, and all that he hath he hath given into his hand.
5And it cometh to pass from the time that he hath appointed him over his house, and over all that he hath, that Jehovah blesseth the house of the Egyptian for Joseph's sake, and the blessing of Jehovah is on all that he hath, in the house, and in the field;
6and he leaveth all that he hath in the hand of Joseph, and he hath not known anything that he hath, except the bread which he is eating. And Joseph is of a fair form, and of a fair appearance.
7And it cometh to pass after these things, that his lord's wife lifteth up her eyes unto Joseph, and saith, ‘Lie with me;’
8and he refuseth, and saith unto his lord's wife, ‘Lo, my lord hath not known what [is] with me in the house, and all that he hath he hath given into my hand;
9none is greater in this house than I, and he hath not withheld from me anything, except thee, because thou [art] his wife; and how shall I do this great evil? — then have I sinned against God.’
10And it cometh to pass at her speaking unto Joseph day [by] day, that he hath not hearkened unto her, to lie near her, to be with her;
11and it cometh to pass about this day, that he goeth into the house to do his work, and there is none of the men of the house there in the house,
12and she catcheth him by his garment, saying, ‘Lie with me;’ and he leaveth his garment in her hand, and fleeth, and goeth without.
13And it cometh to pass when she seeth that he hath left his garment in her hand, and fleeth without,
14that she calleth for the men of her house, and speaketh to them, saying, ‘See, he hath brought in to us a man, a Hebrew, to play with us; he hath come in unto me, to lie with me, and I call with a loud voice,
15and it cometh to pass, when he heareth that I have lifted up my voice and call, that he leaveth his garment near me, and fleeth, and goeth without.’
16And she placeth his garment near her, until the coming in of his lord unto his house.
17And she speaketh unto him according to these words, saying, ‘The Hebrew servant whom thou hast brought unto us, hath come in unto me to play with me;
18and it cometh to pass, when I lift my voice and call, that he leaveth his garment near me, and fleeth without.’
19And it cometh to pass when his lord heareth the words of his wife, which she hath spoken unto him, saying, ‘According to these things hath thy servant done to me,’ that his anger burneth;
20and Joseph's lord taketh him, and putteth him unto the round-house, a place where the king's prisoners [are] bound; and he is there in the round-house.
21And Jehovah is with Joseph, and stretcheth out kindness unto him, and putteth his grace in the eyes of the chief of the round-house;
22and the chief of the round-house giveth into the hand of Joseph all the prisoners who [are] in the round-house, and of all that they are doing there, he hath been doer;
23the chief of the round-house seeth not anything under his hand, because Jehovah [is] with him, and that which he is doing Jehovah is causing to prosper.

Joseph and Potiphar’s Wife
1Now Joseph had been brought down to Egypt, and #ch. 37:36 Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, the captain of the guard, an Egyptian, #ch. 37:28 had bought him from the #ch. 37:25Ishmaelites who had brought him down there. 2#ver. 21; Acts 7:9; [ch. 21:22; 26:24, 28; 28:15; 1 Sam. 16:18; 18:14, 28]The Lord was with Joseph, and he became a successful man, and he was in the house of his Egyptian master. 3His master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord #2 Chr. 26:5; Ps. 1:3caused all that he did to succeed in his hands. 4So Joseph #ver. 21; ch. 19:19; 33:10 found favor in his sight and attended him, and he made him overseer of his house #ver. 8and put him in charge of all that he had. 5From the time that he made him overseer in his house and over all that he had, the Lord blessed the Egyptian’s house #[ch. 30:27]for Joseph’s sake; the blessing of the Lord was on all that he had, in house and field. 6So he left all that he had in Joseph’s charge, and because of him he had no concern about anything but the food he ate.
Now Joseph was #[ch. 29:17; 1 Sam. 16:12]handsome in form and appearance. 7And after a time his master’s wife cast her eyes on Joseph and said, “Lie with me.” 8But he refused and said to his master’s wife, “Behold, because of me my master has no concern about anything in the house, and #ver. 4he has put everything that he has in my charge. 9He is not greater in this house than I am, nor has he kept back anything from me except you, because you are his wife. How then can I do this great wickedness and #2 Sam. 12:13; Ps. 51:4sin against God?” 10And as she spoke to Joseph day after day, he #[Prov. 1:10]would not listen to her, to lie beside her or to be with her.
11But one day, when he went into the house to do his work and none of the men of the house was there in the house, 12#[Prov. 7:13, 18]she caught him by his garment, saying, “Lie with me.” But he left his garment in her hand and fled and got out of the house. 13And as soon as she saw that he had left his garment in her hand and had fled out of the house, 14she called to the men of her household and said to them, “See, he has brought among us a Hebrew to laugh at us. He came in to me to lie with me, and I cried out with a loud voice. 15And as soon as he heard that I lifted up my voice and cried out, he left his garment beside me and fled and got out of the house.” 16Then she laid up his garment by her until his master came home, 17and she told him the same story, saying, “The Hebrew servant, whom you have brought among us, came in to me to laugh at me. 18But as soon as I lifted up my voice and cried, he left his garment beside me and fled out of the house.”
19As soon as his master heard the words that his wife spoke to him, “This is the way your servant treated me,” his anger was kindled. 20And Joseph’s master took him and #Ps. 105:18 put him into the #ch. 40:3, 5; [ch. 40:15; 41:14]prison, the place where the king’s prisoners were confined, and he was there in prison. 21But #ver. 2; Acts 7:9, 10 the Lord was with Joseph and showed him steadfast love #Ex. 3:21; 11:3; 12:36and gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison. 22And the keeper of the prison #ch. 40:4put Joseph in charge of all the prisoners who were in the prison. Whatever was done there, he was the one who did it. 23The keeper of the prison paid no attention to anything that was in Joseph’s charge, because #ver. 2, 3the Lord was with him. And whatever he did, the Lord made it succeed.
