Genesis ‘12,14 And it came to pass, that, when Abram was come into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair. 12,15 And the princes of Pharaoh saw her, and praised her to Pharaoh; and the woman was taken into Pharaoh’s house. 12,16 And he dealt well with Abram for her sake; and he had sheep, and oxen, and he-asses, and men-servants, and maid-servants, and she-asses, and camels. 12,17 And the LORD plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai Abram’s wife. 12,18 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? 12,19 Why saidst thou:…

She is my sister? so that I took her to be my wife; now therefore behold thy wife, take her, and go thy way.’

12,20 And Pharaoh gave men charge concerning him; and they brought him on the way, and his wife, and all that he had. 13,1 And Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the South. 13,2 And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold. 13,3 And he went on his journeys from the South even to Beth-el, unto the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Beth-el and Ai; 13,4 unto the place of the altar, which he had made there at the first; and Abram called there on the name of the LORD.
