||BHS Hebrew Text
|Now Joseph was taken down to Egypt, and Pot'i-phar, an officer of Pharaoh, the captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him from the Ish'maelites who had brought him down there.
||וְיֹוסֵף הוּרַד מִצְרָיְמָה וַיִּקְנֵהוּ פֹּוטִיפַר סְרִיס פַּרְעֹה שַׂר הַטַּבָּחִים אִישׁ מִצְרִי מִיַּד הַיִּשְׁמְעֵאלִים אֲשֶׁר הֹורִדֻהוּ שָׁמָּה׃ ||J source Gn.39.1-25|
Egypt - Joseph and Potiphar's wife. Gn.39.1-23
|The LORD was with Joseph, and he became a successful man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian,
||וַיְהִי יְהוָה אֶת־יֹוסֵף וַיְהִי אִישׁ מַצְלִיחַ וַיְהִי בְּבֵית אֲדֹנָיו הַמִּצְרִי׃ || |
|and his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD caused all that he did to prosper in his hands.
||וַיַּרְא אֲדֹנָיו כִּי יְהוָה אִתֹּו וְכֹל אֲשֶׁר־הוּא עֹשֶׂה יְהוָה מַצְלִיחַ בְּיָדֹו׃ || |
|So Joseph found favor in his sight and attended him, and he made him overseer of his house and put him in charge of all that he had.
||וַיִּמְצָא יֹוסֵף חֵן בְּעֵינָיו וַיְשָׁרֶת אֹתֹו וַיַּפְקִדֵהוּ עַל־בֵּיתֹו וְכָל־יֶשׁ־לֹו נָתַן בְּיָדֹו׃ || |
|From the time that he made him overseer in his house and over all that he had the LORD blessed the Egyptian's house for Joseph's sake; the blessing of the LORD was upon all that he had, in house and field.
||וַיְהִי מֵאָז הִפְקִיד אֹתֹו בְּבֵיתֹו וְעַל כָּל־אֲשֶׁר יֶשׁ־לֹו וַיְבָרֶךְ יְהוָה אֶת־בֵּית הַמִּצְרִי בִּגְלַל יֹוסֵף וַיְהִי בִּרְכַּת יְהוָה בְּכָל־אֲשֶׁר יֶשׁ־לֹו בַּבַּיִת וּבַשָּׂדֶה׃ || |
|So he left all that he had in Joseph's charge; and having him he had no concern for anything but the food which he ate.
Now Joseph was handsome and good-looking.
|וַיַּעֲזֹב כָּל־אֲשֶׁר־לֹו בְּיַד־יֹוסֵף וְלֹא־יָדַע אִתֹּו מְאוּמָה כִּי אִם־הַלֶּחֶם אֲשֶׁר־הוּא אֹוכֵל וַיְהִי יֹוסֵף יְפֵה־תֹאַר וִיפֵה מַרְאֶה׃ || |
|And after a time his master's wife cast her eyes upon Joseph, and said, "Lie with me."
||וַיְהִי אַחַר הַדְּבָרִים הָאֵלֶּה וַתִּשָּׂא אֵשֶׁת־אֲדֹנָיו אֶת־עֵינֶיהָ אֶל־יֹוסֵף וַתֹּאמֶר שִׁכְבָה עִמִּי׃ || |
|But he refused and said to his master's wife, "Lo, having me my master has no concern about anything in the house, and he has put everything that he has in my hand;
||וַיְמָאֵן וַיֹּאמֶר אֶל־אֵשֶׁת אֲדֹנָיו הֵן אֲדֹנִי לֹא־יָדַע אִתִּי מַה־בַּבָּיִת וְכֹל אֲשֶׁר־יֶשׁ־לֹו נָתַן בְּיָדִי׃ || |
|he is not greater in this house than I am; nor has he kept back anything from me except yourself, because you are his wife; how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?"
||אֵינֶנּוּ גָדֹול בַּבַּיִת הַזֶּה מִמֶּנִּי וְלֹא־חָשַׂךְ מִמֶּנִּי מְאוּמָה כִּי אִם־אֹותָךְ בַּאֲשֶׁר אַתְּ־אִשְׁתֹּו וְאֵיךְ אֶעֱשֶׂה הָרָעָה הַגְּדֹלָה הַזֹּאת וְחָטָאתִי לֵאלֹהִים׃ || |
|And although she spoke to Joseph day after day, he would not listen to her, to lie with her or to be with her.
||וַיְהִי כְּדַבְּרָהּ אֶל־יֹוסֵף יֹום יֹום וְלֹא־שָׁמַע אֵלֶיהָ לִשְׁכַּב אֶצְלָהּ לִהְיֹות עִמָּהּ׃ || |
|But one day, when he went into the house to do his work and none of the men of the house was there in the house,
||וַיְהִי כְּהַיֹּום הַזֶּה וַיָּבֹא הַבַּיְתָה לַעֲשֹׂות מְלַאכְתֹּו וְאֵין אִישׁ מֵאַנְשֵׁי הַבַּיִת שָׁם בַּבָּיִת׃ || |
|she caught him by his garment, saying, "Lie with me." But he left his garment in her hand, and fled and got out of the house.
||וַתִּתְפְּשֵׂהוּ בְּבִגְדֹו לֵאמֹר שִׁכְבָה עִמִּי וַיַּעֲזֹב בִּגְדֹו בְּיָדָהּ וַיָּנָס וַיֵּצֵא הַחוּצָה׃ || |
|And when she saw that he had left his garment in her hand, and had fled out of the house,
||וַיְהִי כִּרְאֹותָהּ כִּי־עָזַב בִּגְדֹו בְּיָדָהּ וַיָּנָס הַחוּצָה׃ || |
|she called to the men of her household and said to them, "See, he has brought among us a Hebrew to insult us; he came in to me to lie with me, and I cried out with a loud voice;
||וַתִּקְרָא לְאַנְשֵׁי בֵיתָהּ וַתֹּאמֶר לָהֶם לֵאמֹר רְאוּ הֵבִיא לָנוּ אִישׁ עִבְרִי לְצַחֶק בָּנוּ בָּא אֵלַי לִשְׁכַּב עִמִּי וָאֶקְרָא בְּקֹול גָּדֹול׃ || |
|and when he heard that I lifted up my voice and cried, he left his garment with me, and fled and got out of the house."
||וַיְהִי כְשָׁמְעֹו כִּי־הֲרִימֹתִי קֹולִי וָאֶקְרָא וַיַּעֲזֹב בִּגְדֹו אֶצְלִי וַיָּנָס וַיֵּצֵא הַחוּצָה׃ || |
|Then she laid up his garment by her until his master came home,
||וַתַּנַּח בִּגְדֹו אֶצְלָהּ עַד־בֹּוא אֲדֹנָיו אֶל־בֵּיתֹו׃ || |
|and she told him the same story, saying, "The Hebrew servant, whom you have brought among us, came in to me to insult me;
||וַתְּדַבֵּר אֵלָיו כַּדְּבָרִים הָאֵלֶּה לֵאמֹר בָּא־אֵלַי הָעֶבֶד הָעִבְרִי אֲשֶׁר־הֵבֵאתָ לָּנוּ לְצַחֶק בִּי׃ || |
|but as soon as I lifted up my voice and cried, he left his garment with me, and fled out of the house."
||וַיְהִי כַּהֲרִימִי קֹולִי וָאֶקְרָא וַיַּעֲזֹב בִּגְדֹו אֶצְלִי וַיָּנָס הַחוּצָה׃ || |
|When his master heard the words which his wife spoke to him, "This is the way your servant treated me," his anger was kindled.
||וַיְהִי כִשְׁמֹעַ אֲדֹנָיו אֶת־דִּבְרֵי אִשְׁתֹּו אֲשֶׁר דִּבְּרָה אֵלָיו לֵאמֹר כַּדְּבָרִים הָאֵלֶּה עָשָׂהּ לִי עַבְדֶּךָ וַיִּחַר אַפֹּו׃ || |
|And Joseph's master took him and put him into the prison, the place where the king's prisoners were confined, and he was there in prison.
||וַיִּקַּח אֲדֹנֵי יֹוסֵף אֹתֹו וַיִּתְּנֵהוּ אֶל־בֵּית הַסֹּהַר מְקֹום אֲשֶׁר־[כ= אֲסוּרֵי] [ק= אֲסִירֵי] הַמֶּלֶךְ אֲסוּרִים וַיְהִי־שָׁם בְּבֵית הַסֹּהַר׃ || |
|But the LORD was with Joseph and showed him steadfast love, and gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.
||וַיְהִי יְהוָה אֶת־יֹוסֵף וַיֵּט אֵלָיו חָסֶד וַיִּתֵּן חִנֹּו בְּעֵינֵי שַׂר בֵּית־הַסֹּהַר׃ || |
|And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph's care all the prisoners who were in the prison; and whatever was done there, he was the doer of it;
||וַיִּתֵּן שַׂר בֵּית־הַסֹּהַר בְּיַד־יֹוסֵף אֵת כָּל־הָאֲסִירִם אֲשֶׁר בְּבֵית הַסֹּהַר וְאֵת כָּל־אֲשֶׁר עֹשִׂים שָׁם הוּא הָיָה עֹשֶׂה׃ || |
|the keeper of the prison paid no heed to anything that was in Joseph's care, because the LORD was with him; and whatever he did, the LORD made it prosper.
||אֵין שַׂר בֵּית־הַסֹּהַר רֹאֶה אֶת־כָּל־מְאוּמָה בְּיָדֹו בַּאֲשֶׁר יְהוָה אִתֹּו וַאֲשֶׁר־הוּא עֹשֶׂה יְהוָה מַצְלִיחַ׃ ס || |
