Genesis 39

Potiphar buys Joseph.
39:1-6

39:1 And Joseph was brought down to Egypt; and Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him of the hands of the Ishmeelites, which had brought him down thither.

In chapter 37, Joseph's brothers get rid of Joseph by selling him to the Midanites (or Ishmeelites) who brought him to Egypt, where they sold him to Potiphar. (Or something like that.)
Who brought Joseph into Egypt?

39:2 And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.

God was with Joseph and he became prosperous.

39:3 And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand.

Potiphar saw that God was with him, and that God made everything he touched prosper.

39:4 And 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.

So he made Joseph the overseer of his house.

39:5 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.

God blessed Potiphar's house for Joseph's sake.

39:6 And he left all that he had in Joseph's hand; and he knew not ought he had, save the bread which he did eat. And Joseph was a goodly person, and well favoured.

Joseph was good looking.
Potiphar's wife
39:7-18

39:7 And it came to pass after these things, that his master's wife cast her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me.

Potiphar's wife looked at Joseph and said, "Lie with me."

39:8 But he refused, and said unto his master's wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand;

39:9 There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?

But Joseph refused, saying,

Your husband has entrusted me with everything he owns.

No one in his house is greater than I am.

You are the only thing he has that I can't possess.

How could I do this wickedness against God?

39:10 And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her.

But she kept asking, and Joseph kept refusing.

39:11 And it came to pass about this time, that Joseph went into the house to do his business; and there was none of the men of the house there within.

One day, Joseph went into the house when there was no one else around.

39:12 And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.

39:13 And it came to pass, when she saw that he had left his garment in her hand, and was fled forth,

And Potiphar's wife grabbed his clothing, saying, "Lie with me."

Joseph left his clothes in her hand and ran away.

39:14 That she called unto the men of her house, and spake unto them, saying, See, he hath brought in an Hebrew unto us to mock us; he came in unto me to lie with me, and I cried with a loud voice:

39:15 And it came to pass, when he heard that I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled, and got him out.

39:16 And she laid up his garment by her, until his lord came home.

After Joseph ran away, Potiphar's wife called the men of her house and said,

Joseph tried to have sex with me.

But I screamed, and he left his clothes with me and ran away.

39:17 And she spake unto him according to these words, saying, The Hebrew servant, which thou hast brought unto us, came in unto me to mock me:

39:18 And it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled out.

She told her husband about it, saying,

The Hebrew servant tried to have sex with me to mock me.

When I screamed, left his clothes with me and ran away.

Joseph is im imprisoned.
39:19-23

39:19 And it came to pass, when his master heard the words of his wife, which she spake unto him, saying, After this manner did thy servant to me; that his wrath was kindled.

39:20 And Joseph's master took him, and put him into the prison, a place where the king's prisoners were bound: and he was there in the prison.

When Potiphar heard about his wife's accusation, he threw Joseph into prison.

39:21 But the LORD was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.

39:22 And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph's hand all the prisoners that were in the prison; and whatsoever they did there, he was the doer of it.

39:23 The keeper of the prison looked not to any thing that was under his hand; because the LORD was with him, and that which he did, the LORD made it to prosper.

But God was with Joseph, so the prison keeper made Joseph the master of all the prisoners.
