1 H85 And Abraham H5265 journeyed [H8799] H5045 from thence toward the south H776 country H3427 , and dwelled [H8799] H6946 between Kadesh H7793 and Shur H1481 , and sojourned [H8799] H1642 in Gerar.
2 H85 And Abraham H559 said [H8799] H413 of H8283 Sarah H802 his wife H269 , She is my sister H40 : and Abimelech H4428 king H1642 of Gerar H7971 sent [H8799] H3947 , and took [H8799] H8283 Sarah.
3 H430 But God H935 came [H8799] H40 to Abimelech H2472 in a dream H3915 by night H559 , and said [H8799] H4191 to him, Behold, thou art but a dead man [H8801] H802 , for the woman H3947 which thou hast taken [H8804] H1167 ; for she is a man's H1166 wife [H8803] .
4 H40 But Abimelech H7126 had not come near [H8804] H559 her: and he said [H8799] H136 , Lord H2026 , wilt thou slay [H8799] H6662 also a righteous H1471 nation?
5 H559 Said [H8804] H1931 he not unto me, She H269 is my sister H1931 ? and she H1571 , even H1931 she H559 herself said [H8804] H251 , He is my brother H8537 : in the integrity H3824 of my heart H5356 and innocency H3709 of my hands H6213 have I done [H8804] this.
6 H430 And God H559 said [H8799] H2472 unto him in a dream H1571 , Yea H3045 , I know [H8804] H6213 that thou didst [H8804] H8537 this in the integrity H3824 of thy heart H2820 ; for I also withheld [H8799] H2398 thee from sinning [H8800] H5414 against me: therefore suffered [H8804] H5060 I thee not to touch [H8800] her.
7 H7725 Now therefore restore [H8685] H376 the man H802 his wife H5030 ; for he is a prophet H6419 , and he shall pray [H8691] H1157 for thee H2421 , and thou shalt live [H8798] H7725 : and if thou restore [H8688] H3045 her not, know [H8798] H4191 thou that thou shalt surely [H8800] H4191 die [H8799] , thou, and all that are thine.
8 H40 Therefore Abimelech H7925 rose early [H8686] H1242 in the morning H7121 , and called [H8799] H5650 all his servants H1696 , and told [H8762] H1697 all these things H241 in their ears H582 : and the men H3966 were sore H3372 afraid [H8799] .
9 H40 Then Abimelech H7121 called [H8799] H85 Abraham H559 , and said [H8799] H6213 unto him, What hast thou done [H8804] H2398 unto us? and what have I offended [H8804] H935 thee, that thou hast brought [H8689] H4467 on me and on my kingdom H1419 a great H2401 sin H6213 ? thou hast done [H8804] H4639 deeds H6213 unto me that ought not to be done [H8735] .
10 H40 And Abimelech H559 said [H8799] H85 unto Abraham H4100 , What H7200 sawest thou [H8804] H6213 , that thou hast done [H8804] H1697 this thing?
11 H85 And Abraham H559 said [H8799] H559 , Because I thought [H8804] H7535 , Surely H3374 the fear H430 of God H4725 is not in this place H2026 ; and they will slay me [H8804] H802 for my wife's H1697 sake.
12 H546 And yet indeed H269 she is my sister H1323 ; she is the daughter H1 of my father H1323 , but not the daughter H517 of my mother H802 ; and she became my wife.
13 H430 And it came to pass, when God H8582 caused me to wander [H8689] H1 from my father's H1004 house H559 , that I said [H8799] H2617 unto her, This is thy kindness H6213 which thou shalt shew [H8799] H4725 unto me; at every place H935 whither we shall come [H8799] H559 , say [H8798] H251 of me, He is my brother.
14 H40 And Abimelech H3947 took [H8799] H6629 sheep H1241 , and oxen H5650 , and menservants H8198 , and womenservants H5414 , and gave [H8799] H85 them unto Abraham H7725 , and restored [H8686] H8283 him Sarah H802 his wife.
15 H40 And Abimelech H559 said [H8799] H776 , Behold, my land H6440 is before thee H3427 : dwell [H8798] H2896 where it pleaseth H5869 thee.
16 H8283 And unto Sarah H559 he said [H8804] H5414 , Behold, I have given [H8804] H251 thy brother H505 a thousand H3701 pieces of silver H3682 : behold, he is to thee a covering H5869 of the eyes H3198 , unto all that are with thee, and with all other : thus she was reproved [H8737] .
17 H85 So Abraham H6419 prayed [H8691] H430 unto God H430 : and God H7495 healed [H8799] H40 Abimelech H802 , and his wife H519 , and his maidservants H3205 ; and they bare [H8799] children .
