Wesley's Notes for Genesis 39:11


39:9 How can I sin against God - Not only how shall I do it and sin against my master, my mistress, myself, my own body and soul, but against God? - Gracious souls look upon this as the worst thing in sin, that it is against God, against his nature and his dominion, against his love and his design. They that love God, for this reason hate sin.

39:10 He hearkened not to her, so much as to be with her. Those that would be kept from harm, must keep themselves out of harm's way.

39:12 When she laid hold on him, he left his garment in her hand - He would not stay to parley with the temptation, but flew out from it with the utmost abhorrence, he left his garment as one escaping for his life.
