Genesis 39


1  And Joseph3130 was brought down3381 to Egypt;4714 and Potiphar,6318 an officer5631 of Pharaoh,6547 captain8269 of the guard,2876 an Egyptian,376 4713 bought7069 him of the hands4480 3027 of the Ishmaelites,3459 which834 had brought him down3381 thither.8033

2  And the LORD3068 was1961 with854 Joseph,3130 and he was1961 a prosperous6743 man;376 and he was1961 in the house1004 of his master113 the Egyptian.4713

3  And his master113 saw7200 that3588 the LORD3068 was with854 him, and that the LORD3068 made all3605 that834 he1931 did6213 to prosper6743 in his hand.3027

4  And Joseph3130 found4672 grace2580 in his sight,5869 and he served8334 him: and he made him overseer6485 over5921 his house,1004 and all3605 that he had3426 he put5414 into his hand.3027

5  And it came to pass1961 from the time4480 227 that he had made him overseer6485 853 in his house,1004 and over5921 all3605 that834 he had,3426 that the LORD3068 blessed1288 853 the Egyptian's4713 house1004 for Joseph's sake;1558 3130 and the blessing1293 of the LORD3068 was1961 upon all3605 that834 he had3426 in the house,1004 and in the field.7704

6  And he left5800 all3605 that834 he had in Joseph's3130 hand;3027 and he knew3045 not3808 aught3972 he had,854 save3588 518 the bread3899 which834 he1931 did eat.398 And Joseph3130 was1961 a goodly3303 8389 person, and well3303 favored.4758

7  And it came to pass1961 after310 these428 things,1697 that his master's113 wife802 cast5375 853 her eyes5869 upon413 Joseph;3130 and she said,559 Lie7901 with5973 me.

8  But he refused,3985 and said559 unto413 his master's113 wife,802 Behold,2005 my master113 knoweth3045 not3808 what4100 is with854 me in the house,1004 and he hath committed5414 all3605 that834 he hath3426 to my hand;3027

9  There is none369 greater1419 in this2088 house1004 than4480 I; neither3808 hath he kept back2820 any thing3972 from4480 me but3588 518 thee, because834 thou859 art his wife:802 how349 then can I do6213 this2063 great1419 wickedness,7451 and sin2398 against God?430

10  And it came to pass,1961 as she spoke1696 to413 Joseph3130 day3117 by day,3117 that he hearkened8085 not3808 unto413 her, to lie7901 by681 her, or to be1961 with5973 her.

11  And it came to pass1961 about this2088 time,3117 that Joseph went935 into the house1004 to do6213 his business;4399 and there was none369 376 of the men4480 376 of the house1004 there8033 within.1004

12  And she caught8610 him by his garment,899 saying,559 Lie7901 with5973 me: and he left5800 his garment899 in her hand,3027 and fled,5127 and got3318 him out.2351

13  And it came to pass,1961 when she saw7200 that3588 he had left5800 his garment899 in her hand,3027 and was fled5127 forth,2351

14  That she called7121 unto the men376 of her house,1004 and spoke559 unto them, saying,559 See,7200 he hath brought in935 a Hebrew376 5680 unto us to mock6711 us; he came in935 unto413 me to lie7901 with5973 me, and I cried7121 with a loud1419 voice:6963

15  And it came to pass,1961 when he heard8085 that3588 I lifted up7311 my voice6963 and cried,7121 that he left5800 his garment899 with681 me, and fled,5127 and got3318 him out.2351

16  And she laid up5117 his garment899 by681 her, until5704 his lord113 came935 413 home.1004

17  And she spoke1696 unto413 him according to these428 words,1697 saying,559 The Hebrew5680 servant,5650 which834 thou hast brought935 unto us, came in935 unto413 me to mock6711 me:

18  And it came to pass,1961 as I lifted up7311 my voice6963 and cried,7121 that he left5800 his garment899 with681 me, and fled5127 out.2351

19  And it came to pass,1961 when his master113 heard8085 853 the words1697 of his wife,802 which834 she spoke1696 unto413 him, saying,559 After this428 manner1697 did6213 thy servant5650 to me; that his wrath639 was kindled.2734

20  And Joseph's3130 master113 took3947 him, and put5414 him into413 the prison,1004 5470 a place4725 where834 the king's4428 prisoners615 were bound:631 and he was1961 there8033 in the prison.1004 5470

21  But the LORD3068 was1961 with854 Joseph,3130 and showed5186 413 him mercy,2617 and gave5414 him favor2580 in the sight5869 of the keeper8269 of the prison.1004 5470

22  And the keeper8269 of the prison1004 5470 committed5414 to Joseph's3130 hand3027 853 all3605 the prisoners615 that834 were in the prison;1004 5470 and whatsoever3605 834 they did6213 there,8033 he1931 was1961 the doer6213 of it.

23  The keeper8269 of the prison1004 5470 looked7200 not369 to 853 any thing3605 3972 that was under his hand;3027 because834 the LORD3068 was with854 him, and that which834 he1931 did,6213 the LORD3068 made it to prosper.6743


1 Ιωσηφ δὲ κατήχθη εἰς Αἴγυπτον καὶ ἐκτήσατο αὐτὸν Πετεφρης ὁ εὐνοῦχος Φαραω ἀρχιμάγειρος ἀνὴρ Αἰγύπτιος ἐκ χειρὸς Ισμαηλιτῶν οἳ κατήγαγον αὐτὸν ἐκεῖ

2 καὶ ἦν κύριος μετὰ Ιωσηφ καὶ ἦν ἀνὴρ ἐπιτυγχάνων καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ παρὰ τῷ κυρίῳ τῷ Αἰγυπτίῳ

3 ᾔδει δὲ ὁ κύριος αὐτοῦ ὅτι κύριος μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ καὶ ὅσα ἂν ποιῇ κύριος εὐοδοῖ ἐν ταῖς χερσὶν αὐτοῦ

4 καὶ εὗρεν Ιωσηφ χάριν ἐναντίον τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ εὐηρέστει δὲ αὐτῷ καὶ κατέστησεν αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντα ὅσα ἦν αὐτῷ ἔδωκεν διὰ χειρὸς Ιωσηφ

5 ἐγένετο δὲ μετὰ τὸ κατασταθῆναι αὐτὸν ἐπὶ τοῦ οἴκου αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπὶ πάντα ὅσα ἦν αὐτῷ καὶ ηὐλόγησεν κύριος τὸν οἶκον τοῦ Αἰγυπτίου διὰ Ιωσηφ καὶ ἐγενήθη εὐλογία κυρίου ἐν πᾶσιν τοῖς ὑπάρχουσιν αὐτῷ ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ καὶ ἐν τῷ ἀγρῷ

6 καὶ ἐπέτρεψεν πάντα ὅσα ἦν αὐτῷ εἰς χεῖρας Ιωσηφ καὶ οὐκ ᾔδει τῶν καθ᾽ ἑαυτὸν οὐδὲν πλὴν τοῦ ἄρτου οὗ ἤσθιεν αὐτός καὶ ἦν Ιωσηφ καλὸς τῷ εἴδει καὶ ὡραῖος τῇ ὄψει σφόδρα

7 καὶ ἐγένετο μετὰ τὰ ῥήματα ταῦτα καὶ ἐπέβαλεν ἡ γυνὴ τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτῆς ἐπὶ Ιωσηφ καὶ εἶπεν κοιμήθητι μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ

8 ὁ δὲ οὐκ ἤθελεν εἶπεν δὲ τῇ γυναικὶ τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ εἰ ὁ κύριός μου οὐ γινώσκει δι᾽ ἐμὲ οὐδὲν ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντα ὅσα ἐστὶν αὐτῷ ἔδωκεν εἰς τὰς χεῖράς μου

9 καὶ οὐχ ὑπερέχει ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ ταύτῃ οὐθὲν ἐμοῦ οὐδὲ ὑπεξῄρηται ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ οὐδὲν πλὴν σοῦ διὰ τὸ σὲ γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ εἶναι καὶ πῶς ποιήσω τὸ ῥῆμα τὸ πονηρὸν τοῦτο καὶ ἁμαρτήσομαι ἐναντίον τοῦ θεοῦ

10 ἡνίκα δὲ ἐλάλει τῷ Ιωσηφ ἡμέραν ἐξ ἡμέρας καὶ οὐχ ὑπήκουσεν αὐτῇ καθεύδειν μετ᾽ αὐτῆς τοῦ συγγενέσθαι αὐτῇ

11 ἐγένετο δὲ τοιαύτη τις ἡμέρα εἰσῆλθεν Ιωσηφ εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν ποιεῖν τὰ ἔργα αὐτοῦ καὶ οὐθεὶς ἦν τῶν ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ ἔσω

12 καὶ ἐπεσπάσατο αὐτὸν τῶν ἱματίων λέγουσα κοιμήθητι μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ καὶ καταλιπὼν τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ ἐν ταῖς χερσὶν αὐτῆς ἔφυγεν καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ἔξω

13 καὶ ἐγένετο ὡς εἶδεν ὅτι κατέλιπεν τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ ἐν ταῖς χερσὶν αὐτῆς καὶ ἔφυγεν καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ἔξω

14 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν τοὺς ὄντας ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς λέγουσα ἴδετε εἰσήγαγεν ἡμῖν παῖδα Εβραῖον ἐμπαίζειν ἡμῖν εἰσῆλθεν πρός με λέγων κοιμήθητι μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ καὶ ἐβόησα φωνῇ μεγάλῃ

15 ἐν δὲ τῷ ἀκοῦσαι αὐτὸν ὅτι ὕψωσα τὴν φωνήν μου καὶ ἐβόησα καταλιπὼν τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ παρ᾽ ἐμοὶ ἔφυγεν καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ἔξω

16 καὶ καταλιμπάνει τὰ ἱμάτια παρ᾽ ἑαυτῇ ἕως ἦλθεν ὁ κύριος εἰς τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ

17 καὶ ἐλάλησεν αὐτῷ κατὰ τὰ ῥήματα ταῦτα λέγουσα εἰσῆλθεν πρός με ὁ παῖς ὁ Εβραῖος ὃν εἰσήγαγες πρὸς ἡμᾶς ἐμπαῖξαί μοι καὶ εἶπέν μοι κοιμηθήσομαι μετὰ σοῦ

18 ὡς δὲ ἤκουσεν ὅτι ὕψωσα τὴν φωνήν μου καὶ ἐβόησα κατέλιπεν τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ παρ᾽ ἐμοὶ καὶ ἔφυγεν καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ἔξω

19 ἐγένετο δὲ ὡς ἤκουσεν ὁ κύριος αὐτοῦ τὰ ῥήματα τῆς γυναικὸς αὐτοῦ ὅσα ἐλάλησεν πρὸς αὐτὸν λέγουσα οὕτως ἐποίησέν μοι ὁ παῖς σου καὶ ἐθυμώθη ὀργῇ

20 καὶ λαβὼν ὁ κύριος Ιωσηφ ἐνέβαλεν αὐτὸν εἰς τὸ ὀχύρωμα εἰς τὸν τόπον ἐν ᾧ οἱ δεσμῶται τοῦ βασιλέως κατέχονται ἐκεῖ ἐν τῷ ὀχυρώματι

21 καὶ ἦν κύριος μετὰ Ιωσηφ καὶ κατέχεεν αὐτοῦ ἔλεος καὶ ἔδωκεν αὐτῷ χάριν ἐναντίον τοῦ ἀρχιδεσμοφύλακος

22 καὶ ἔδωκεν ὁ ἀρχιδεσμοφύλαξ τὸ δεσμωτήριον διὰ χειρὸς Ιωσηφ καὶ πάντας τοὺς ἀπηγμένους ὅσοι ἐν τῷ δεσμωτηρίῳ καὶ πάντα ὅσα ποιοῦσιν ἐκεῖ

23 οὐκ ἦν ὁ ἀρχιδεσμοφύλαξ τοῦ δεσμωτηρίου γινώσκων δι᾽ αὐτὸν οὐθέν πάντα γὰρ ἦν διὰ χειρὸς Ιωσηφ διὰ τὸ τὸν κύριον μετ᾽ αὐτοῦ εἶναι καὶ ὅσα αὐτὸς ἐποίει κύριος εὐώδου ἐν ταῖς χερσὶν αὐτοῦ

1 Igitur Joseph ductus est in Ægyptum, emitque eum Putiphar eunuchus Pharaonis, princeps exercitus, vir ægyptius, de manu Ismaëlitarum, a quibus perductus erat.

2 Fuitque Dominus cum eo, et erat vir in cunctis prospere agens: habitavitque in domo domini sui,

3 qui optime noverat Dominum esse cum eo, et omnia, quæ gerebat, ab eo dirigi in manu illius.

4 Invenitque Joseph gratiam coram domino suo, et ministrabat ei: a quo præpositus omnibus gubernabat creditam sibi domum, et universa quæ ei tradita fuerant:

5 benedixitque Dominus domui Ægyptii propter Joseph, et multiplicavit tam in ædibus quam in agris cunctam ejus substantiam:

6 nec quidquam aliud noverat, nisi panem quo vescebatur. Erat autem Joseph pulchra facie, et decorus aspectu.

7 Post multos itaque dies injecit domina sua oculos suos in Joseph, et ait: Dormi mecum.

8 Qui nequaquam acquiescens operi nefario, dixit ad eam: Ecce dominus meus, omnibus mihi traditis, ignorat quid habeat in domo sua:

9 nec quidquam est quod non in mea sit potestate, vel non tradiderit mihi, præter te, quæ uxor ejus es: quomodo ergo possum hoc malum facere, et peccare in Deum meum?

10 Hujuscemodi verbis per singulos dies, et mulier molesta erat adolescenti: et ille recusabat stuprum.

11 Accidit autem quadam die ut intraret Joseph domum, et operis quippiam absque arbitris faceret:

12 et illa, apprehensa lacinia vestimenti ejus, diceret: Dormi mecum. Qui relicto in manu ejus pallio fugit, et egressus est foras.

13 Cumque vidisset mulier vestem in manibus suis, et se esse contemptam,

14 vocavit ad se homines domus suæ, et ait ad eos: En introduxit virum hebræum, ut illuderet nobis: ingressus est ad me, ut coiret mecum: cumque ego succlamassem,

15 et audisset vocem meam, reliquit pallium quod tenebam, et fugit foras.

16 In argumentum ergo fidei retentum pallium ostendit marito revertenti domum,

17 et ait: Ingressus est ad me servus hebræus quem adduxisti, ut illuderet mihi:

18 cumque audisset me clamare, reliquit pallium quod tenebam, et fugit foras.

19 His auditis dominus, et nimium credulus verbis conjugis, iratus est valde:

20 tradiditque Joseph in carcerem, ubi vincti regis custodiebantur, et erat ibi clausus.

21 Fuit autem Dominus cum Joseph, et misertus illius dedit ei gratiam in conspectu principis carceris.

22 Qui tradidit in manu illius universos vinctos qui in custodia tenebantur: et quidquid fiebat, sub ipso erat.

23 Nec noverat aliquid, cunctis ei creditis: Dominus enim erat cum illo, et omnia opera ejus dirigebat.
