V. 2 What an interruption and a secret to understand. The Lord was with him in his prosperity. (We will see another remarkable statement later in this chapter).
V. 7-20 Tempted, not just one day, but many (Heb. 4:1515For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. (Hebrews 4:15)). Good circumstances are the cause of Satan's subtle attacks on us sometimes.
V. 9 All sin is against God. He didn't say "we" but "I". He was in a very much more responsible position than she was. She did not know the Lord.
V. 21-23 What a sweet follow-up to the beginning of verse 2. Here in adversity, in prison now, there is this blessed assurance, "but the Lord was with Joseph". (In prosperity, and in prison).
