Gen 39:1

“Joseph was brought down to Egypt.” Joseph was sold into slavery in Egypt when he was 17. [For more on the chronology of Joseph, see commentary on Gen. 37:2].

Gen 39:4

“And Potiphar made.” The Hebrew uses the pronoun “he” instead of Potiphar, but that is confusing when brought into English. Some other English versions make that change for clarity (cp. NIV).

Gen 39:20

“and put him into the prison.” Joseph was 17 years old when he was sold into slavery in Egypt. He was 30 when he became second in command in Egypt (Gen. 41:46). The Bible does not say how those 13 or 14 years in slavery were divided up between being in Potiphar’s house (Gen. 37:36; 39:1) and being in prison (Gen. 39:20).

Gen 39:23

“under Joseph’s hand.” The Hebrew text reads “his hand” instead of “Joseph’s hand,” but many English versions read ‘Joseph’s hand” for clarity.
