Genesis 39:23 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
When this daring assault upon Joseph's chastity had failed, on account of his faithfulness and fear of God, the adulterous woman reversed the whole affair, and charged him with an attack upon her modesty, in order that she might have her revenge upon him and avert suspicion from herself. She called her house-servants and said, "See, he (her husband, whom she does not think worth naming) has brought us a Hebrew man ("no epitheton ornans to Egyptian ears: Genesis 43:32") to mock us (צחק to show his wantonness; us, the wife and servants, especially the female portion): he came in unto me to lie with me; and I cried with a loud voice...and he left his garment by me." She said אצלי "by my side," not "in my hand," as that would have shown the true state of the case. She then left the garment lying by her side till the return of Joseph's master, to whom she repeated her tale.

The LORD was with Joseph, and he became a successful man, and he was in the house of his Egyptian master.
His master saw that the LORD was with him and that the LORD caused all that he did to succeed in his hands.
But he refused and said to his master's wife, "Behold, because of me my master has no concern about anything in the house, and he has put everything that he has in my charge.
And Joseph's master took him and put him into the prison, the place where the king's prisoners were confined, and he was there in prison.
