Genesis 39:16

And she laid up his garment by her, until his lord came home.
Read Chapter 39

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
A proof of her fidelity, or an argument to gain credit, argumentum fidei. (Challoner) Love neglected, turns to fury. She wishes to take away Joseph's life, according to the laws of Egypt against adulterers. Diodorus says Sesostris burnt some women taken in the crime; and we must attribute it to divine Providence, that the enraged husband did not inflict instant death upon his slave. Perhaps he did not altogether believe him guilty. (Haydock)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
