Joseph had been brought down to Egypt, and Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, the
captain of the guard, an Egyptian, had bought him from the Ishmaelites who had
brought him down there. The LORD was with Joseph, and he became a successful
man, and he was in the house of his Egyptian master. His master saw that the

hands. So Joseph found favor in his sight and attended him, and he made him
overseer of his house and put him in charge of all that he had.

are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with
humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the
humble.” Humble yourselves, therefore,
under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you,
casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Be sober-minded;
be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking
someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds
of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.

To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
