Yosef was brought down to Mitzrayim. Potifar, an officer of Par`oh's, the captain of the guard, a Mitzrian, bought him from the hand of the Yishme`elim that had brought him down there.
The LORD was with Yosef, and he was a prosperous man. He was in the house of his master the Mitzrian.
His master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did prosper in his hand.
Yosef found favor in his sight. He ministered to him, and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.
It happened from the time that he made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that the LORD blessed the Mitzrian's house for Yosef's sake; and the blessing of the LORD was on all that he had, in the house and in the field.
He left all that he had in Yosef's hand. He didn't concern himself with anything, except for the food which he ate. Yosef was well-built and handsome.
It happened after these things, that his master's wife cast her eyes on Yosef; and she said, "Lie with me."
