The Bible - Genesis 20
1 - And Abraham journeyed from thence toward the south country, and dwelled between Kadesh and Shur, and sojourned in Gerar.
2 - And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, She is my sister: and Abimelech king of Gerar sent, and took Sarah.
3 - But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him, Behold, thou art but a dead man, for the woman which thou hast taken; for she is a man's wife.
4 - But Abimelech had not come near her: and he said, LORD, wilt thou slay also a righteous nation?
5 - Said he not unto me, She is my sister? and she, even she herself said, He is my brother: in the integrity of my heart and innocency of my hands have I done this.
6 - And God said unto him in a dream, Yea, I know that thou didst this in the integrity of thy heart; for I also withheld thee from sinning against me: therefore suffered I thee not to touch her.
7 - Now therefore restore the man his wife; for he is a prophet, and he shall pray for thee, and thou shalt live: and if thou restore her not, know thou that thou shalt surely die, thou, and all that are thine.
8 - Therefore Abimelech rose early in the morning, and called all his servants, and told all these things in their ears: and the men were sore afraid.
9 - Then Abimelech called Abraham, and said unto him, What hast thou done unto us? and what have I offended thee, that thou hast brought on me and on my kingdom a great sin? thou hast done deeds unto me that ought not to be done.
10 - And Abimelech said unto Abraham, What sawest thou, that thou hast done this thing?
11 - And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely the fear of God is not in this place; and they will slay me for my wife's sake.
12 - And yet indeed she is my sister; she is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife.
13 - And it came to pass, when God caused me to wander from my father's house, that I said unto her, This is thy kindness which thou shalt show unto me; at every place whither we shall come, say of me, He is my brother.
14 - And Abimelech took sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and womenservants, and gave them unto Abraham, and restored him Sarah his wife.
15 - And Abimelech said, Behold, my land is before thee: dwell where it pleaseth thee.
16 - And unto Sarah he said, Behold, I have given thy brother a thousand pieces of silver: behold, he is to thee a covering of the eyes, unto all that are with thee, and with all other: thus she was reproved.
17 - So Abraham prayed unto God: and God healed Abimelech, and his wife, and his maidservants; and they bare children.
18 - For the LORD had fast closed up all the wombs of the house of Abimelech, because of Sarah Abraham's wife.
