Genesis 39:1-3, 6-7, 11-20 – New Revised Standard Version

1 Now Joseph was taken down to Egypt, and Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, the captain of the guard, an Egyptian, bought him from the Ishmaelites who had brought him down there.

2 The Lord was with Joseph, and he became a successful man; he was in the house of his Egyptian master.

3 His master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord caused all that he did to prosper in his hands.

6 So he left all that he had in Joseph’s charge, and with him there he had no concern for anything but the food that he ate. Now Joseph was handsome and good-looking.

7 And after a time his master’s wife cast her eyes on Joseph and said, “Lie with me.”

11 One day, however, when he went into the house to do his work, and while no one else was in the house,

12 she caught hold of his garment, saying, “Lie with me!” But he left his garment in her hand and fled and ran outside.

13 When she saw that he had left his garment in her hand and had fled outside,

14 she called out to the members of her household and said to them, “See, my husband has brought among us a Hebrew to insult us! He came in to me to lie with me, and I cried out with a loud voice,

15 and when he heard me raise my voice and cry out, he left his garment beside me and fled outside.”

16 Then she kept his garment by her until his master came home,

17 and she told him the same story, saying, “The Hebrew servant, whom you have brought among us, came in to me to insult me,

18 but as soon as I raised my voice and cried out, he left his garment beside me and fled outside.”

19 When his master heard the words that his wife spoke to him, saying, “This is the way your servant treated me,” he became enraged.

20 And Joseph’s master took him and put him into the prison, the place where the king’s prisoners were confined; he remained there in prison.

Sometimes in life our faithfulness puts us in unwelcomed situations. Young Joseph sold into slavery in Egypt. There he refuses his boss’ wife & her sexual advances and he is thrown in prison. He is forgotten about and is languishing there. When we’re faithful to God, we sometimes suffer as a result.
