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