Bereishit (Genesis) 39:1—6

1And Yosef had been brought down to Mitzrayim. Potiphar, a courtier of Pharaoh, the Chamberlain of the Butchers, a prominent Egyptian, purchased him from the Ishmaelites who had brought him down there. 2HaShem was with Yosef, and he became a successful man; and he remained in the house of the Egyptian master. 3His master perceived that HaShem was with him, and whatever he did HaShem made succeed in his hand. 4Yosef found favor in his eyes, and he attended him; he appointed him over his household, and whatever he had he placed in his custody.

5And it happened that from that time he appointed him in his house and whatever he had, HaShem blessed the Egyptian’s house on Yosef’s account, so that HaShem’s blessing was in whatever he owned, in the house and in the field. 6He left all that he had in Yosef’s custody and with him present he concerned himself with nothing except for the bread that he would eat. Now Yosef was handsome of form and handsome of appearance.
