simianaudio commented on the word potiphar
Chapter 39 of Genesis tells the story of Joseph's service in the house of Potiphar, an official of the pharaoh in Egypt.
Potiphar's wife flirts with Joseph incessantly. Once while trying to evade her advances, Joseph leaves behind his cloak in her hands.
With the garment as evidence, she claims that Joseph has thrown himself upon her.
When he hears this accusation, the jealous Potiphar imprisons Joseph.
