Genesis 39:2-3

Genesis 39:23

39:23 The warden did not concern himself 4  with anything that was in Joseph’s 5  care because the Lord was with him and whatever he was doing the Lord was making successful.

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.

4 tn Heb “was not looking at anything.”

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