Genesis 39


39:1 And Joseph was brought down to Egypt: and Potiphar, an
 officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought
 him of the hands of the Ishmaelites, who had brought him down
 thither.
39:2 And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man:
 and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.
39:3 And his master saw that the LORD [was] with him, and that
 the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand.
39:4 And Joseph 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.
39:5 And 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
 blessed the Egyptian's house for Joseph's sake: and the
 blessing of the LORD was on all that he had in the house, and
 in the field.
39:6 And he left all that he had in Joseph's hand; and he knew
 not aught he had, save the bread which he ate; and Joseph was
 [a] goodly [person], and well favored.
39:7 And it came to pass after these things, that his master's
 wife cast her eyes upon Joseph: and she said, Lie with me.
39:8 But he refused, and said to his master's wife, Behold, my
 master knoweth not what [is] with me in the house, and he hath
 committed all that he hath to my hand:
39:9 [There is] none greater in his house than I; neither hath
 he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou [art] his
 wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against
 God?
39:10 And it came to pass, as she spoke to Joseph day by day,
 that he hearkened not to her, to lie by her, [or] to be with
 her.
39:11 And it came to pass, about this time, that [Joseph] went
 into the house to do his business; and [there was] none of the
 men of the house there within.
39:12 And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me:
 and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and went out.
39:13 And it came to pass, when she saw that he had left his
 garment in her hand, and had fled forth,
39:14 That she called to the men of her house, and spoke to
 them, saying, See, he hath brought in a Hebrew to us to mock
 us: he came in to me to lie with me, and I cried with a loud
 voice:
39:15 And it came to pass, when he heard that I raised my voice
 and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled, and went
 out.
39:16 And she laid up his garment by her until his lord came
 home.
39:17 And she spoke to him according to these words, saying, The
 Hebrew servant, which thou hast brought to us, came in to me to
 mock me.
39:18 And it came to pass, as I raised my voice and cried, that
 he left his garment with me, and fled.
39:19 And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of
 his wife, which she spoke to him, saying, After this manner did
 thy servant to me; that his wrath was kindled.
39:20 And Joseph's 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.
39:21 But the LORD was with Joseph, and showed him mercy, and
 gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.
39:22 And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph's hand
 all the prisoners that [were] in the prison; and whatever they
 did there, was done by him.
39:23 The keeper of the prison looked not to any thing [that
 was] under his hand; because the LORD was with him: and [that]
 which he did the LORD made [it] to prosper.
