SEV Biblia, Chapter 39:9 No hay otro mayor que yo en esta casa, y ninguna cosa me ha reservado sino a ti, por cuanto tú eres su mujer, Â¿cómo, pues, haría yo este grande mal y pecaría contra Dios?
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 39:9 Verse 9. How then] ûyaw veeik, and how? Joseph gives two most powerful reasons for his noncompliance with the wishes of his mistress: 1.Gratitude to his master, to whom he owed all that he had. 2. His fear of God, in whose sight it would be a heinous offense, and who would not fail to punish him for it. With the kindness of his master and the displeasure of God before his eyes, how could he be capable of committing an act of transgression, which would at once have distinguished him as the most ungrateful and the most worthless of men?
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 7-12 - Beauty either in men or women, often proves a snare both to themselve and others. This forbids pride in it, and requires constan watchfulness against the temptation that attends it. We have great nee to make a covenant with our eyes, lest the eyes infect the heart. When lust has got power, decency, and reputation, and conscience, are all sacrificed. Potiphar's wife showed that her heart was fully set to d evil. Satan, when he found he could not overcome Joseph with the troubles and the frowns of the world, for in them he still held fas his principle, assaulted him with pleasures, which have ruined mor than the former. But Joseph, by the grace of God, was enabled to resis and overcome this temptation; and his escape was as great an instanc of the Divine power, as the deliverance of the three children out of the fiery furnace. This sin was one which might most easily beset him The tempter was his mistress, one whose favour would help him forward and it was at his utmost peril if he slighted her, and made her his enemy. The time and place favoured the temptation. To all this wa added frequent, constant urging. The almighty grace of God enable Joseph to overcome this assault of the enemy. He urges what he owe both to God and his master. We are bound in honour, as well as justic and gratitude, not in any thing to wrong those who place trust in us how secretly soever it may be done. He would not offend his God. Thre arguments Joseph urges upon himself. 1. He considers who he was tha was tempted. One in covenant with God, who professed religion an relation to him. 2. What the sin was to which he was tempted. Other might look upon it as a small matter; but Joseph did not so think of it. Call sin by its own name, and never lessen it. Let sins of thi nature always be looked upon as great wickedness, as exceedingl sinful. 3. Against whom he was tempted to sin, against God. Sin is against God, against his nature and his dominion, against his love an his design. Those that love God, for this reason hate sin. The grace of God enabled Joseph to overcome the temptation, by avoiding the temper He would not stay to parley with the temptation, but fled from it, a escaping for his life. If we mean not to do iniquity, let us flee as bird from the snare, and as a roe from the hunter.
