CLV(i) 1 And Joseph was brought down to Egypt. And bought is he by Potiphar, a eunuch of Pharaoh, chief of the executioners, an Egyptian man, from the hand of the Ishmaelites who had brought him down there. 2 And coming is Yahweh to be with Joseph, and becoming is he a prosperous man. And coming is he to be in the house of his lord, the Egyptian. 3 And seeing is his lord that Yahweh is with him and that all that he is doing Yahweh is prospering in his hand. 4 And finding is Joseph grace in the eyes of his lord, and ministering is he to him. And making him is he supervisor over his household, and all, forsooth, which is his he gives into Joseph's hand. 5 And coming is it, since he makes him supervisor in his house and over all, forsooth, that is his, that Yahweh is blessing the Egyptian's household due to Joseph, and coming is Yahweh's blessing to be over all, forsooth, which is his, in the house and in the field. 6 And leaving is he all that is his in the hand of Joseph. And naught knows he of his, save the bread which he is eating. And coming is Joseph to have a lovely shape and a lovely appearance. 7 And coming is it after these things, that lifting is the wife of his lord her eyes to Joseph and is saying, "Lie with me. 8 And refusing is he, and saying to his lord's wife, "Behold! My lord knows naught of me in the house, and all, forsooth, that is his he gives into my hand. 9 No one is greater in this house than I, and he has not kept back aught from me save you, in that you are his wife. And how shall I do this great evil and sin against the Elohim? 10 And coming is it, as she speaks to Joseph day by day, that he does not hearken to her to lie beside her, to be with her. 11 And coming is a day as this, and coming is Joseph to the house to do his work, and no man of the mortals of the household is there in the house. 12 And grasping him is she by his cloak, saying, "Lie with me!"And leaving is he his cloak in her hand, and fleeing, and faring forth outside. 13 And coming is it, as she sees that he leaves his cloak in her hand and is fleeing and faring forth outside, 14 that calling is she to the mortals of her household and is speaking to them, saying, "See! He brings to us a man, a Hebrew to laugh at us. He comes to me saying, `Lie with me,' and calling am I with a loud voice. 15 And coming is it, as he hears that I raise high my voice and am calling, that he is leaving his cloak beside me and is fleeing and faring forth outside. 16 And leaving is she his cloak beside her till his lord comes to his house. 17 And speaking is she to him according to these words, saying, "There came to me the Hebrew servant whom you brought to us, to laugh at me, and said to me, `Lie with me.. 18 And coming is it, as I raise high my voice and am calling, that he is leaving his cloak beside me and is fleeing and is faring forth outside. 19 And coming is it, as his lord hears the words of his wife, which she speaks to him, saying, "According to these words does your servant to me,that hot is his anger. 20 And Joseph's lord is taking him and is giving him over to the round-house, the place in which the king's prisoners are bound. And coming is he to be there in the round-house. 21 Yet coming is Yahweh to be with Joseph, and He is stretching out to him in kindness and is giving him grace in the eyes of the chief of the round-house. 22 And the chief of the round-house is giving into the hand of Joseph all the prisoners who are in the round-house. And all that is being done there, he comes to be the doer. 23 Naught is the chief of the round-house prison seeing of all that is in his hand, in that Yahweh is with him, and all that he is doing Yahweh is prospering.
