King James Version

Genesis 39:1-23

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.

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.
