She caught him by his robe and said, "Come to bed with me." But he escaped and ran outside, leaving his robe in her hand.
When she saw that he had left his robe and had run out of the house,
she called to her house servants and said, "Look at this! This Hebrew that my husband brought to the house is insulting us. He came into my room and tried to rape me, but I screamed as loud as I could.
When he heard me scream, he ran outside, leaving his robe beside me."
She kept his robe with her until Joseph's master came home.
Then she told him the same story: "That Hebrew slave that you brought here came into my room and insulted me.
But when I screamed, he ran outside, leaving his robe beside me."
Joseph's master was furious
and had Joseph arrested and put in the prison where the king's prisoners were kept, and there he stayed.
But the Lord was with Joseph and blessed him, so that the jailer was pleased with him. 1
He put Joseph in charge of all the other prisoners and made him responsible for everything that was done in the prison.
