▼ Lit from the hand offrom the b Ishmaelites, who had taken him down there. 2 c The Lord was with Joseph, so he became a ▼
▼ Or prosperoussuccessful man. And he was in the house of his master, the Egyptian. 3 Now his master e saw that the Lord was with him and how the Lord f caused all that he did to prosper in his hand. 4 So Joseph g found favor in his sight and ▼
▼ Or ministered to himbecame his personal servant; and he made him overseer over his house, and i all that he owned he put in his ▼ charge. 5 It came about that from the time he made him overseer in his house and over all that he owned, the Lord k blessed the Egyptian’s house on account of Joseph; thus l the Lord’s blessing was upon all that he owned, in the house and in the field. 6 So he left everything he owned in Joseph’s ▼ charge; and with him there he did not ▼
▼ Lit knowconcern himself with anything except the ▼
▼ Lit breadfood which he ▼
▼ Or used to eatate. Now Joseph was q handsome in form and appearance. 7 It came about after these events r that his master’s wife ▼
▼ Lit lifted up her eyes atlooked with desire at Joseph, and she said t “Lie with me.” 8 But u he refused and said to his master’s wife, “Behold, with me here, my master ▼
▼ Lit does not know what is in the housedoes not concern himself with anything in the house, and he has put all that he owns in my ▼ charge. 9 ▼
▼ Or He is not greater, y “There is no one greater in this house than I, and he has withheld nothing from me except you, because you are his wife. How then could I do this great evil and z sin against God?” 10 As she spoke to Joseph day after day, he did not listen to her to lie beside her or be with her. 11 Now it happened ▼
▼ Lit about this dayone day that he went into the house to do his work, and none of the men of the household was there inside. 12 She caught him by his garment, saying, “Lie with me!” And he left his garment in her hand and fled, and went outside. 13 ▼
▼ Lit And it came about whenWhen she saw that he had left his garment in her hand and had fled outside, 14 she called to the men of her household and said to them, “See, he has brought in a ▼
▼ Lit Hebrew manHebrew to us to make sport of us; he came in to me to lie with me, and I ▼
▼ Lit called with a great voicescreamed. 15 “When he heard that I raised my voice and ▼
▼ Lit called outscreamed, he left his garment beside me and fled and went outside.” 16 So she ▼
▼ Lit let...lie besideleft his garment beside her until his master came home. 17 Then she ag spoke to him ▼
▼ Lit according towith these words, ▼
▼ Lit saying, “The“The Hebrew slave, whom you brought to us, came in to me to make sport of me; 18 and as I raised my voice and ▼
▼ Lit called outscreamed, he left his garment beside me and fled outside.”
