Genesis 39:12

Καὶ ἐπεσπάσατο αὐτὸν τῶν ἱματίων αὐτοῦ λέγουσα· Κοιμήθητι μετ᾿ ἐμοῦ. καὶ καταλιπὼν τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτοῦ ἐν ταῖς χερσὶν αὐτῆς ἔφυγεν καὶ ἐξῆλθεν ἔξω.

And she pulled him by his clothes, saying, “Lie with me.” And leaving his clothes in her hands, he fled and went out outside.

ותתפשׂהו בבגדו לאמר שׁכבה עמי ויעזב בגדו בידה וינס ויצא החוצה׃


* ἱματίων αὐτοῦ (Samaritan text) | ἱματίων
* καταλιπὼν | καταλείπων
* some MSS omit ἐν ταῖς χερσὶν αὐτῆς
* Lie OR Sleep OR Go to bed (hence, have sexual intercourse)
