The Bible - Genesis 12
1 - Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee: - Acts 7:3
2 - And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
3 - And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. - Acts 3:25 Gal 3:8 -
4 - So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.
5 - And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.
6 - And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.
7 - And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.
8 - And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, having Bethel on the west, and Hai on the east: and there he builded an altar unto the LORD, and called upon the name of the LORD.
9 - And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the south.
10 - And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was grievous in the land.
11 - And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that he said unto Sarai his wife, Behold now, I know that thou art a fair woman to look upon:
12 - Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see thee, that they shall say, This is his wife: and they will kill me, but they will save thee alive.
13 - Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister: that it may be well with me for thy sake; and my soul shall live because of thee.
14 - And it came to pass, that, when Abram was come into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair.
15 - The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house.
16 - And he entreated Abram well for her sake: and he had sheep, and oxen, and he asses, and menservants, and maidservants, and she asses, and camels.
17 - And the LORD plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai Abram's wife.
18 - And Pharaoh called Abram and said, What is this that thou hast done unto me? why didst thou not tell me that she was thy wife?
19 - Why saidst thou, She is my sister? so I might have taken her to me to wife: now therefore behold thy wife, take her, and go thy way.
20 - And Pharaoh commanded his men concerning him: and they sent him away, and his wife, and all that he had.
