A Midrash tells us that Potiphar's wife not only falsely accused
Joseph herself, but that she also suborned several of her female
friends to do likewise. The Book of Jasher, which embodies the
Talmudic story quoted above, tells us that an infant in the
cradle spoke up and testified to Joseph's innocence, and that
while Joseph was in prison his inamorata daily visited him. More
on this topic may be found in the Koran, chap. xii. The amours
of Joseph and Zulieka, as told by the glib tongue of tradition,
fitly find their consummation in marriage, and certain Moslems
affect to see in all this an allegorical type of Divine love, an
allegory which some other divines find in the Song of Solomon.

The thickness of the earth is a thousand paces or ells.

THE TALMUD, _Succah_, fol. 53, col. 2.
