Genesis 39:19 Meaning and Commentary

Genesis 39:19

And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his
wife
The story she related concerning Joseph, which was her own invention, and a lie: which she spake unto him, saying, after this manner did thy servant to
me;
attempting to violate her chastity, as she pretended: that his wrath was kindled;
that is, against Joseph, without strictly examining her words, which they would not bear, her story being but ill put together, and without hearing Joseph's defence.
