Bible: Gen 39:1-6

Joseph and Potiphar’s Wife

39:1 Now Joseph had been brought down to Egypt. 1  An Egyptian named Potiphar, an official of Pharaoh and the captain of the guard, 2  purchased him from 3  the Ishmaelites who had brought him there. 39:2 The Lord was with Joseph. He was successful 4  and lived 5  in the household of his Egyptian master. 39:3 His master observed that the Lord was with him and that the Lord made everything he was doing successful. 6  39:4 So Joseph found favor in his sight and became his personal attendant. 7  Potiphar appointed Joseph 8  overseer of his household and put him in charge 9  of everything he owned. 39:5 From the time 10  Potiphar 11  appointed him over his household and over all that he owned, the Lord blessed 12  the Egyptian’s household for Joseph’s sake. The blessing of the Lord was on everything that he had, both 13  in his house and in his fields. 14  39:6 So Potiphar 15  left 16  everything he had in Joseph’s care; 17  he gave no thought 18  to anything except the food he ate. 19 

Now Joseph was well built and good-looking. 20
