Genesis 39:17

Context
39:17 This is what she said to him: 1  “That Hebrew slave 2  you brought to us tried to humiliate me, 3 

1 tn Heb “and she spoke to him according to these words, saying.”

2 sn That Hebrew slave. Now, when speaking to her husband, Potiphar’s wife refers to Joseph as a Hebrew slave, a very demeaning description.

3 tn Heb “came to me to make fun of me.” The statement needs no explanation because of the connotations of “came to me” and “to make fun of me.” See the note on the expression “humiliate us” in v. 14.
