Joseph's Success in Egypt

1 Now Joseph had been taken down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an Egyptian officer of Pharaoh, the captain of the bodyguard, bought him afrom the 1Ishmaelites, who had taken him down there. 2 2The LORD was with Joseph, so he became a bsuccessful man. And he was in the house of his master, the Egyptian. 3 Now his master 3saw that the LORD was with him and how the LORD 4caused all that he did to prosper in his hand. 4 So Joseph 5found favor in his sight and cbecame his personal servant; and he made him overseer over his house, and 6all that he owned he put in his dcharge. 5 It came about that from the time he made him overseer in his house and over all that he owned, the LORD 7blessed the Egyptian's house on account of Joseph; thus 8the 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 echarge; and with him there he did not fconcern himself with anything except the gfood which he hate. Now Joseph was 9handsome in form and appearance. 7 It came about after these events 10that his master's wife ilooked with desire at Joseph, and she said, "11Lie with me." 8 But 12he refused and said to his master's wife, "Behold, with me here, my master jdoes not concern himself with anything in the house, and he has put all that he owns in my kcharge. 9 "l13There 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 14sin against God?"
