And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him from the hands of the Ishmeelites, who had brought him down there.
But the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prospered man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.
And his master saw that the LORD was with him and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand.
So Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him; and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand.
And it came to pass from the time that he had made him overseer in his house and over all that he had, that the LORD blessed the Egyptian’s house for Joseph’s sake; and the blessing of the LORD was upon all that he had in the house and in the field.
And he left all that he had in Joseph’s hand, and with him knew of nothing more than of the bread which he ate. And Joseph was handsome and well favoured.
And it came to pass after these things, that his master’s wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me.
