What does Genesis 39:16 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Genesis 39:16

And she laid up his garment by her
As a proof of what she laid to his charge, and as a testimony against him: until her lord came home;
or until his lord came home, for the pronoun refers to Joseph, and so Jarchi interprets it; who either was gone a journey, or gone to court that day, being an officer of Pharaoh's, or to the public place where the festival was kept that day, if it was such an one.
