Genesis 39:1-23, NLT
Joseph in Potiphar’s House
1When Joseph was taken to Egypt by the Ishmaelite traders, he was purchased by Potiphar, an Egyptian officer. Potiphar was captain of the guard for Pharaoh, the king of Egypt.
2The Lord was with Joseph, so he succeeded in everything he did as he served in the home of his Egyptian master.
Joseph was a very handsome and well-built young man,
8But Joseph refused. “Look,” he told her, “my master trusts me with everything in his entire household.
10She kept putting pressure on Joseph day after day, but he refused to sleep with her, and he kept out of her way as much as possible.
13When she saw that she was holding his cloak and he had fled,
16She kept the cloak with her until her husband came home.
Joseph Put in Prison
19Potiphar was furious when he heard his wife’s story about how Joseph had treated her.
