001:012:001
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 shew thee:


001:012:002
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:


001:012:003
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.


001:012:004
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.


001:012:005
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.


001:012:006
And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem,
unto the plain of Moreh.
And the Canaanite was then in the land.


001:012:007
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.


001:012:008
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.


001:012:009
And Abram journeyed,
going on still toward the south.


001:012:010
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.


001:012:011
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:


001:012:012
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.


001:012:013
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.


001:012:014
And it came to pass,
that,
when Abram was come into Egypt,
the Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair.


001:012:015
The princes also of Pharaoh saw her,
and commended her before Pharaoh:
and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house.


001:012:016
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.


001:012:017
And the LORD plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai Abram's wife.


001:012:018
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?


001:012:019
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.


001:012:020
And Pharaoh commanded his men concerning him:
and they sent him away,
and his wife,
and all that he had.
