Book of Genesis  Chapter 39

Joseph in Egypt

GENESIS 39:1  And 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.

GENESIS 39:2  And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was  in the house of his master the Egyptian.

GENESIS 39:3  And his master saw that the LORD was with him, and that the LORD made  all that he did to prosper in his hand.

GENESIS 39:4  And 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.

GENESIS 39:5  And 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.

GENESIS 39:6  And 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.

GENESIS 39:7  And it came to pass after these things, that his master's wife cast  her eyes upon Joseph; and she said, Lie with me.

GENESIS 39:8  But 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;

GENESIS 39:9  There 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?

GENESIS 39:10  And 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.

GENESIS 39:11  And 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.

GENESIS 39:12  And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left  his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.

GENESIS 39:13  And it came to pass, when she saw that he had left his garment in  her hand, and was fled forth,

GENESIS 39:14  That 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:

GENESIS 39:15  And 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.

GENESIS 39:16  And she laid up his garment by her, until his lord came home.

GENESIS 39:17  And 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:

GENESIS 39:18  And it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left  his garment with me, and fled out.

GENESIS 39:19  And 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.

GENESIS 39:20  And 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.

GENESIS 39:21  But the LORD was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him  favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison.

GENESIS 39:22  And 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.

GENESIS 39:23  The 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.

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, accepted by the three major Western faiths and a major work of Western civilization, documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
