Potiphar’s Wife

Joseph of the Old Testament was employed in Potiphar’s household. Potiphar’s wife became infatuated with him and wanted to sleep with him. Jacob’s moral purity made him resist all her advances and she then gave protest to her husband that Joseph molested her. Joseph was put in jail. As an idiom Potiphar’s wife means one who seduces. I have been enticed by Potiphar’s wife.
