Genesis 39:1-23

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.

2The Lord was with Joseph so that he prospered, and he lived in the house of his Egyptian master. 3When his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord gave him success in everything he did, 4Joseph found favor in his eyes and became his attendant. Potiphar put him in charge of his household, and he entrusted to his care everything he owned. 5From 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. 6So 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, 7and after a while his master’s wife took notice of Joseph and said, “Come to bed with me!”

8But 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. 9No 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?” 10And though she spoke to Joseph day after day, he refused to go to bed with her or even be with her.

11One day he went into the house to attend to his duties, and none of the household servants was inside. 12She 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.

13When she saw that he had left his cloak in her hand and had run out of the house, 14she 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. 15When he heard me scream for help, he left his cloak beside me and ran out of the house.”

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

19When his master heard the story his wife told him, saying, “This is how your slave treated me,” he burned with anger. 20Joseph’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, 21the Lord was with him; he showed him kindness and granted him favor in the eyes of the prison warden. 22So the warden put Joseph in charge of all those held in the prison, and he was made responsible for all that was done there. 23The warden paid no attention to anything under Joseph’s care, because the Lord was with Joseph and gave him success in whatever he did.

Ang Pulong Sa Dios

Genesis 39:1-23

Si Jose ug ang Asawa ni Potifar

1Gidala sa mga Ishmaelinhon si Jose ngadto sa Ehipto, ug gipalit siya ni Potifar nga usa sa mga opisyal sa hari sa Ehipto.39:1 hari sa Ehipto: sa Hebreo, Faraon. (Si Potifar kapitan sa mga guwardya sa palasyo.) 2Giubanan gayod sa Ginoo si Jose, busa nagmauswagon siya. Didto siya mipuyo sa balay sa iyang agalon nga Ehiptohanon nga si Potifar. 3Nakita ni Potifar nga nagauban gayod ang Ginoo kang Jose ug gipalampos sa tanan niyang gihimo, 4busa gikahimut-an ni Potifar si Jose. Gihimo niya kini nga iyang personal nga katabang ug tigdumala sa iyang panimalay ug sa tanan niyang kabtangan. 5Sukad niadto, gipanalanginan sa Ginoo ang panimalay sa Ehiptohanon nga si Potifar ug ang tanan niyang kabtangan sulod sa balay ug didto sa iyang uma. Gihimo kini sa Ginoo tungod kang Jose. 6Gitugyan ni Potifar ang tanan kang Jose ug wala na siyay gikabalak-an pa gawas sa paghunahuna kon unsay iyang kaonon.

Guwapo si Jose ug maayog barog. 7Unya, naibog kaniya ang asawa sa iyang agalon. Gihagad niya si Jose nga makigdulog kaniya. 8Apan mibalibad si Jose. Miingon siya sa asawa sa iyang agalon, “Gitugyan kanako sa akong agalon ang tanan niyang kabtangan ug wala na siyay gikabalak-an dinhi sa iyang panimalay. 9Gihatagan niya ako sa labawng katungod dinhi niini nga panimalay, ug gitugyan niya kanako ang tanan gawas lang kanimo tungod kay ikaw iyang asawa. Busa dili ko mahimong budhian ang akong agalon ug magpakasala sa Dios.” 10Bisan ug adlaw-adlaw gidani sa babaye si Jose aron nga makigdulog kaniya, wala gayod kini mosugot.

11Usa ka adlaw, misulod si Jose sa balay aron motrabaho, ug naatol nga wala gayoy bisan usa ka sulugoon didto sa sulod sa balay. 12Kalit nga gihawiran ang iyang bisti sa asawa sa iyang agalon ug miingon kini kaniya, “Pakigdulog kanako.” Apan midagan si Jose ngadto sa gawas sa balay, ug nahibilin ang iyang kupo nga nabira sa babaye. 13Sa pagkakita sa babaye nga midagan sa gawas si Jose ug nahibilin diha kaniya ang kupo niini, 14gitawag niya ang iyang mga sulugoon ug miingon, “Tan-awa ninyo kini! Gidad-an kita dinhi sa akong bana ug Hebreo aron pakaulawan kita. Misulod siya sa akong kuwarto aron paglugos kanako, apan misinggit ako. 15Busa midagan siya pagawas, ug nabiyaan niya ang iyang bisti.”

16Gitipigan sa babaye ang bisti ni Jose hangtod sa pagpauli sa iyang bana. 17Unya gisugilon niya sa iyang bana ang nahitabo. Miingon siya, “Ang Hebreo nga sulugoon nga gidala mo dinhi, buot akong pakaulawan. Misulod siya sa akong kuwarto aron lugoson ako. 18Apan sa dihang misinggit ako midagan siya ngadto sa gawas, ug nabiyaan niya ang iyang kupo.”

19Sa pagkadungog ni Potifar sa gisulti sa iyang asawa mahitungod sa gibuhat ni Jose, nasuko siya pag-ayo. 20Busa gidala niya si Jose ug gisulod sa prisohan nga alang sa mga piniriso sa hari. Apan bisan didto sa prisohan, 21nagauban gihapon ang Ginoo kang Jose. Ug tungod sa kaayo sa Ginoo, gikahimut-an sa tigdumala sa prisohan si Jose. 22Gitugyan niya kang Jose ang pagdumala sa tanang mga piniriso ug ang tanang mga buluhaton didto. 23Wala na maghunahuna pa ang tigdumala sa prisohan bahin sa mga butang nga gitugyan niya kang Jose, tungod kay uban ang Ginoo kang Jose ug gihatagan siya sa Ginoo ug kalamposan sa tanan niyang gihimo.
