Genesis 39:6-18New American Standard Bible (NASB)

So he left everything he owned in Joseph’s [a]charge; and with him there he did not [b]concern himself with anything except the [c]food which he [d]ate.

Now Joseph was handsome in form and appearance. It came about after these events that his master’s wife [e]looked with desire at Joseph, and she said, “Lie with me.” But he refused and said to his master’s wife, “Behold, with me here, my master [f]does not concern himself with anything in the house, and he has put all that he owns in my [g]charge. [h]There is no one greater in this house than I, and he has withheld nothing from me except you, because you are his wife. How then could I do this great evil and sin against God?” 10 As she spoke to Joseph day after day, he did not listen to her to lie beside her or be with her. 11 Now it happened [i]one day that he went into the house to do his work, and none of the men of the household was there inside. 12 She caught him by his garment, saying, “Lie with me!” And he left his garment in her hand and fled, and went outside. 13 [j]When she saw that he had left his garment in her hand and had fled outside, 14 she called to the men of her household and said to them, “See, he has brought in a [k]Hebrew to us to make sport of us; he came in to me to lie with me, and I [l]screamed. 15 When he heard that I raised my voice and [m]screamed, he left his garment beside me and fled and went outside.” 16 So she [n]left his garment beside her until his master came home. 17 Then she spoke to him [o]with these words, “[p]The Hebrew slave, whom you brought to us, came in to me to make sport of me; 18 and as I raised my voice and [q]screamed, he left his garment beside me and fled outside.”

Genesis 39:6-18Amplified Bible (AMP)

So Potiphar left all that he owned in Joseph’s charge; and with Joseph there he did not [need to] [a]pay attention to anything except the food he ate.

Now Joseph was handsome and attractive in form and appearance. Then after a time his master’s wife [b]looked at Joseph with desire, and she said, “Lie with me.” But he refused and said to his master’s wife, “Look, with me in the house, my master does not concern himself with anything; he has put everything that he owns in my charge. He is not greater in this house than I am, nor has he kept anything from me except you, because you are his wife. How then could I do this great evil and sin against God [and your husband]?” 10 And so it was that she spoke to Joseph [persistently] day after day, but he did not listen to her [plea] to lie beside her or be with her. 11 Then it happened one day that Joseph went into the house to attend to his duties, and none of the men of the household was there in the house. 12 She caught Joseph by his [outer] robe, saying, “Lie with me!” But he left his robe in her hand and ran, and got outside [the house]. 13 When she saw that he had left his robe in her hand and had run outside, 14 she called to the men of her household and said to them, “Look at this, your master has brought a Hebrew [into the household] to mock and insult us; he came to me to lie with me, and I screamed. 15 When he heard me screaming, he left his robe with me and ran outside [the house].” 16 So she left Joseph’s [outer] robe beside her until his master came home. 17 Then she told her husband the same story, saying, “The Hebrew servant, whom you brought among us, came to me to mock and insult me; 18 then as soon as I raised my voice and screamed, he left his robe with me and ran outside [the house].”
