Bible Commentary for Genesis 39:19

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 39:19


39:20 Where the king's prisoners were bound - Potiphar, it is likely, chose that prison because it was the worst; for there the irons entered into the soul, #Psa 105:18|, but God designed it to pave the way to his enlargement. Our Lord Jesus, like Joseph was bound, and numbered with the transgressors.

39:21 But the Lord was with Joseph and shewed him mercy. God despiseth not his prisoners, #Psa 69:33|. No gates nor bars can shut out his gracious presence from his people. God gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison - God can raise up friends for his people even where they little expect them. The keeper saw that God was with him, and that every thing prospered under his hand, and therefore intrusted him with the management of the affairs of the prison.
