Joseph Allured by Potiphar’s Wife – George Lawson – 1807

Joseph was a good soldier of that God whom he served. He was far from yielding to the most insinuating and most urgent temptations. “And it came to pass, as she spake to Joseph day by day, that he hearkened not unto her, to lie by her, or to be with her.” He regarded neither her caresses nor her frowns, her threatenings nor her promises. None of her arts could induce him to do that great wickedness to which she solicited him, and to sin against God. If she could have given him all the treasures of Egypt as the price of his virtue, he would have despised them.
