Genesis 39:2-3

Context
39:2 The Lord was with Joseph. He was successful 1  and lived 2  in the household of his Egyptian master. 39:3 His master observed that the Lord was with him and that the Lord made everything he was doing successful. 3 

1 tn Heb “and he was a prosperous man.” This does not mean that Joseph became wealthy, but that he was successful in what he was doing, or making progress in his situation (see 24:21).

2 tn Heb “and he was.”

3 tn The Hebrew text adds “in his hand,” a phrase not included in the translation for stylistic reasons.
