B4. 從奴衣到囚衣 (創39:21-23)

但耶和華與約瑟同在,向他施恩,使他在司獄的眼前蒙恩。司獄就把監裡所有的囚犯都交在約瑟手下;他們在那裡所辦的事都是經他的手。凡在約瑟手下的事,司獄一概不察,因為耶和華與約瑟同在;耶和華使他所做的盡都順利。

the LORD was with him; he showed him kindness and granted him favor in the eyes of the prison warden. So the warden put Joseph in charge of all those held in the prison, and he was made responsible for all that was done there. The warden paid no attention to anything under Joseph’s care, because the LORD was with Joseph and gave him success in whatever he did.

約瑟丟了「奴衣」,如今作牢改穿「囚衣」,並且是與「王的囚犯」(創39:20)共處一室,這是「護衛長府內的監裡」(創40:3)。因為「耶和華與約瑟同在」,所以約瑟得以在司獄「眼前蒙恩」。司獄如同護衛長波提乏一樣,讓約瑟管理原先屬於他自己的責任區。約瑟不論是身著「奴衣」或是身著「囚衣」,他都因有「神的同在」,凡他手所做的事「盡都順利」(創39:3, 23)。
