Genesis 39

Si Jose kag ang Asawa ni Potifar

1Karon, sang nadala na si Jose sang mga Ishmaelinhon sa Egipto, ginbaligya siya kay Potifar nga isa sa mga opisyal sang hari sang Egipto.[a] (Si Potifar kapitan sang mga guwardya sa palasyo.) Gin-ubayan gid sang Ginoo si Jose gani nagmainuswagon siya. Didto siya nag-estar sa balay sang iya agalon nga Egiptohanon nga si Potifar. Nakita ni Potifar nga ginaubayan gid sang Ginoo si Jose kag ginapakamaayo sa tanan niya nga ginahimo, gani nahulog ang iya buot kay Jose. Ginhimo niya siya nga iya kaugalingon nga kabulig kag manugdumala sang iya panimalay kag sang tanan niya nga pagkabutang. Halin sang tion nga si Jose ang nagadumala, ginbendisyunan sang Ginoo ang panimalay ni Potifar nga Egiptohanon kag ang tanan niya nga pagkabutang sa iya balay kag kaumahan. Ginhimo ini sang Ginoo tungod kay Jose. Gintugyan ni Potifar ang tanan kay Jose kag wala na siya sing iban nga ginaintiendi kundi ang iya lang nga pagkaon.

Guwapo si Jose kag mabukod ang lawas. Sang ulihi, naluyag sa iya ang asawa sang iya agalon. Ginhagad niya si Jose nga maghulid sa iya. Pero nagbalibad si Jose. Siling niya sa babayi, “Pamati bala! Gintugyan sa akon sang akon agalon ang tanan niya nga pagkabutang, gani wala na siya nagapalibog sa mga butang diri sa iya panimalay. Wala na sing may maglabaw pa sa akon sa sining panimalay. Gintugyan niya sa akon ang tanan magluwas lang sa imo tungod kay asawa niya ikaw. Gani indi ko mahimo nga traiduran ang akon agalon kag magpakasala sa Dios.” 10 Bisan adlaw-adlaw ang paghagad sang babayi kay Jose nga maghulid sa iya, wala gid siya magsugot.

11 Isa sadto ka adlaw, nagsulod si Jose sa balay agod mag-obra. Natabuan nga wala gid sing bisan isa nga suluguon didto sa sulod sang balay. 12 Karon, ginhawiran siya sa bayo sang asawa sang iya agalon kag ginsilingan, “Hulid ka sa akon.” Pero nagdalagan si Jose paguwa sa balay, kag nabilin ang iya bayo sa babayi. 13 Sang makita sang babayi nga nagguwa si Jose kag nahawiran niya ang iya bayo, 14 gintawag niya ang iya mga suluguon kag nagsiling, “Tan-awa bala ninyo ini! Gindal-an kita diri sang akon bana sing Hebreo agod pakahuy-an kita. Abi ninyo, nagsulod siya sa akon kuwarto agod luguson ako, pero nagsinggit ako. 15 Gani nagdalagan siya paguwa, kag nabilin niya ang iya bayo.”

16 Gintago sang babayi ang bayo ni Jose hasta nga nag-abot ang iya bana. 17 Nanugid siya dayon sa iya bana. Siling niya, “Ang Hebreo nga suluguon nga gindala mo diri luyag niya ako pakahuy-an tungod kay nagsulod siya sa akon kuwarto agod luguson ako. 18 Pero sang nagsinggit ako nagdalagan siya paguwa, kag nabilin pa gani ang iya bayo.”

19 Pagkabati ni Potifar sa ginsugid sang iya asawa parte sa ginhimo ni Jose, naakig gid siya. 20 Gani ginpadakop niya si Jose kag ginsulod sa prisohan sang mga priso sang hari. Pero bisan didto si Jose sa prisohan, 21 gin-ubayan gihapon siya sang Ginoo. Kag tungod sa kaayo sang Ginoo, nahulog ang buot sang manugdumala sang prisohan kay Jose. 22 Gani gintugyan niya kay Jose ang pagdumala sa tanan nga priso kag sa tanan nga buluhaton sa prisohan. 23 Wala na nagapalibog ang manugdumala sang prisohan sa mga butang nga gintugyan niya kay Jose, kay ginaubayan sang Ginoo si Jose kag ginapakamaayo sa tanan niya nga ginahimo.

Genesis 39

Joseph and Potiphar’s wife

1Now Joseph had been taken down to Egypt. Potiphar, an Egyptian who was one of Pharaoh’s officials, the captain of the guard, bought him from the Ishmaelites who had taken him there.

The Lord was with Joseph so that he prospered, and he lived in the house of his Egyptian master. When his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord gave him success in everything he did, Joseph found favour in his eyes and became his attendant. Potiphar put him in charge of his household, and he entrusted to his care everything he owned. From the time he put him in charge of his household and of all that he owned, the Lord blessed the household of the Egyptian because of Joseph. The blessing of the Lord was on everything Potiphar had, both in the house and in the field. So Potiphar left everything he had in Joseph’s care; with Joseph in charge, he did not concern himself with anything except the food he ate.

Now Joseph was well-built and handsome, and after a while his master’s wife took notice of Joseph and said, ‘Come to bed with me!’

But he refused. ‘With me in charge,’ he told her, ‘my master does not concern himself with anything in the house; everything he owns he has entrusted to my care. No one is greater in this house than I am. My master has withheld nothing from me except you, because you are his wife. How then could I do such a wicked thing and sin against God?’ 10 And though she spoke to Joseph day after day, he refused to go to bed with her or even to be with her.

11 One day he went into the house to attend to his duties, and none of the household servants was inside. 12 She caught him by his cloak and said, ‘Come to bed with me!’ But he left his cloak in her hand and ran out of the house.

13 When she saw that he had left his cloak in her hand and had run out of the house, 14 she called her household servants. ‘Look,’ she said to them, ‘this Hebrew has been brought to us to make sport of us! He came in here to sleep with me, but I screamed. 15 When he heard me scream for help, he left his cloak beside me and ran out of the house.’

16 She kept his cloak beside her until his master came home. 17 Then she told him this story: ‘That Hebrew slave you brought us came to me to make sport of me. 18 But as soon as I screamed for help, he left his cloak beside me and ran out of the house.’

19 When his master heard the story his wife told him, saying, ‘This is how your slave treated me,’ he burned with anger. 20 Joseph’s master took him and put him in prison, the place where the king’s prisoners were confined.

But while Joseph was there in the prison, 21 the Lord was with him; he showed him kindness and granted him favour in the eyes of the prison warder. 22 So the warder put Joseph in charge of all those held in the prison, and he was made responsible for all that was done there. 23 The warder paid no attention to anything under Joseph’s care, because the Lord was with Joseph and gave him success in whatever he did.
