1And 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. 2And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian. 3And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made all that he did to prosper in his hand. 4And 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. 5And 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. 6And 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.
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. 8But 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; 9There 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? 10And 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. 11And 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. 12And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.
13And it came to pass, when she saw that he had left his garment in her hand, and was fled forth, 14That 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:39.14 loud: Heb. great 15And 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. 16And she laid up his garment by her, until his lord came home. 17And 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: 18And it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled out.
19And 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. 20And 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.
21¶ But the LORD was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.39.21 shewed…: Heb. extended kindness unto him 22And 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. 23The 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.
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.39:1 hari sang Egipto: sa Hebreo, Faraon. (Si Potifar kapitan sang mga guwardya sa palasyo.) 2Gin-ubayan gid sang Ginoo si Jose gani nagmainuswagon siya. Didto siya nag-estar sa balay sang iya agalon nga Egiptohanon nga si Potifar. 3Nakita ni Potifar nga ginaubayan gid sang Ginoo si Jose kag ginapakamaayo sa tanan niya nga ginahimo, 4gani 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. 5Halin 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. 6Gintugyan 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. 7Sang ulihi, naluyag sa iya ang asawa sang iya agalon. Ginhagad niya si Jose nga maghulid sa iya. 8Pero 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. 9Wala 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.” 10Bisan adlaw-adlaw ang paghagad sang babayi kay Jose nga maghulid sa iya, wala gid siya magsugot.
11Isa 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. 12Karon, 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. 13Sang makita sang babayi nga nagguwa si Jose kag nahawiran niya ang iya bayo, 14gintawag 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. 15Gani nagdalagan siya paguwa, kag nabilin niya ang iya bayo.”
16Gintago sang babayi ang bayo ni Jose hasta nga nag-abot ang iya bana. 17Nanugid 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. 18Pero sang nagsinggit ako nagdalagan siya paguwa, kag nabilin pa gani ang iya bayo.”
19Pagkabati ni Potifar sa ginsugid sang iya asawa parte sa ginhimo ni Jose, naakig gid siya. 20Gani ginpadakop niya si Jose kag ginsulod sa prisohan sang mga priso sang hari. Pero bisan didto si Jose sa prisohan, 21gin-ubayan gihapon siya sang Ginoo. Kag tungod sa kaayo sang Ginoo, nahulog ang buot sang manugdumala sang prisohan kay Jose. 22Gani gintugyan niya kay Jose ang pagdumala sa tanan nga priso kag sa tanan nga buluhaton sa prisohan. 23Wala 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.
