Text Commentary

1And Aseneth said to him, Come, my lord, come into my house; and she took his right hand and brought him 1 So B: D ‘and hand in hand (lit. ‘holding each other's right hands’) they entered’. inside her house. 2And Joseph sat down on her father Pentephres's seat, and she brought water to wash his feet; and Joseph said to her, Let one of your virgins come, and let her wash my feet. 3And Aseneth said to him, No, my lord, for my hands are your hands, and your feet my feet, 2 So DFA Slav.: B ‘my feet your feet’. and no one else shall wash your feet; and so she had her way and washed his feet. 4And Joseph took her by the right hand and kissed it, 3 Or ‘her’. and Aseneth kissed his head. 5And Aseneth's parents 4 B adds ‘both her father and her mother’. came back from their country estate, and they saw Aseneth sitting with Joseph and wearing a wedding 5 So BA Slav.: D ‘bright’. robe; and they rejoiced and glorified God, and they ate and they drank. 6And Pentephres said to Joseph, To-morrow I will invite the lords and satraps of Egypt, and I will celebrate your wedding, and you shall take Aseneth as your wife. 7And Joseph said, First I must tell Pharaoh about Aseneth, because he is my father; and he will give me Aseneth as my wife himself. 8And Joseph stayed that day with Pentephres; and he did not sleep with Aseneth, for he said, It is not right for a man who worships God to have intercourse with his wife before their marriage.
