Unchecked Copy BoxGen 39:1 - Now Joseph had been taken down to Egypt. Potiphar, an Egyptian who was one of Pharaoh’s officials, the captain of the guard, bought him from the Ishmaelites who had taken him there.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 39:8 - But he refused. “With me in charge,” he told her, “my master does not concern himself with anything in the house; everything he owns he has entrusted to my care.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 39:9 - No one is greater in this house than I am. My master has withheld nothing from me except you, because you are his wife. How then could I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 39:13 - When she saw that he had left his cloak in her hand and had run out of the house,

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 39:14 - she called her household servants. “Look,” she said to them, “this Hebrew has been brought to us to make sport of us! He came in here to sleep with me, but I screamed.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 39:15 - When he heard me scream for help, he left his cloak beside me and ran out of the house.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 39:16 - She kept his cloak beside her until his master came home.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 39:17 - Then she told him this story: “That Hebrew slave you brought us came to me to make sport of me.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 39:18 - But as soon as I screamed for help, he left his cloak beside me and ran out of the house.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 39:19 - When his master heard the story his wife told him, saying, “This is how your slave treated me,” he burned with anger.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 39:20 - Joseph’s master took him and put him in prison, the place where the king’s prisoners were confined. But while Joseph was there in the prison,

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 39:21 - the LORD was with him; he showed him kindness and granted him favor in the eyes of the prison warden.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 39:22 - So the warden put Joseph in charge of all those held in the prison, and he was made responsible for all that was done there.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 39:23 - The warden paid no attention to anything under Joseph’s care, because the LORD was with Joseph and gave him success in whatever he did.
