So Joseph found favor in his sight and became his personal attendant. 1  Potiphar appointed Joseph 2  overseer of his household and put him in charge 3  of everything he owned.

NET © Notes

sn The Hebrew verb translated became his personal attendant refers to higher domestic service, usually along the lines of a personal attendant. Here Joseph is made the household steward, a position well-attested in Egyptian literature.

tn Heb “him”; the referent (Joseph) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

tn Heb “put into his hand.”
