Genesis - Chapter 39
1 Now Joseph had been taken down into Egypt. Potiphar the Egyptian, one of Pharaoh's officials and commander of the guard, bought him from the Ishmaelites who had taken him down there.
4 he was pleased with Joseph and made him his personal attendant; and his master put him in charge of his household, entrusting him with all his possessions.
5 And from the time he put him in charge of his household and all his possessions, Yahweh blessed the Egyptian's household out of consideration for Joseph; Yahweh's blessing extended to all his possessions, both household and estate.
9 He himself wields no more authority in this house than I do. He has exempted nothing from me except yourself, because you are his wife. How could I do anything so wicked, and sin against God?'
10 Although she spoke to Joseph day after day, he would not agree to sleep with her or be with her.
13 When she saw that he had left the tunic in her hands as he ran out,
15 and when he heard me scream, he left his tunic beside me and ran out of the house.'
16 She kept his tunic by her until his master came home.
18 But when I screamed, he left his tunic beside me and ran away.'
21 But Yahweh was with Joseph. He showed him faithful love and made him popular with the chief gaoler.
22 The chief gaoler put Joseph in charge of all the prisoners in the gaol, making him responsible for everything done there.
