12:5 Abram took Sarai his wife, Lot his brother`s son, all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls who they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan. Into the land of Canaan they came.
12:8 He left from there to the mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, having Bethel on the west, and Ai on the east. There he built an altar to Yahweh, and called on the name of Yahweh.
12:9 Abram journeyed, going on still toward the South.
12:11 It happened, when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that he said to Sarai his wife, "See now, I know that you are a beautiful woman to look on.
12:12 It will happen, when the Egyptians will see you, that they will say, `This is his wife.` They will kill me, but they will save you alive.
12:13 Please say that you are my sister, that it may be well with me for your sake, and that my soul may live because of you."
12:14 It happened that when Abram had come into Egypt, the Egyptians saw that the woman was very beautiful.
12:15 The princes of Pharaoh saw her, and praised her to Pharaoh; and the woman was taken into Pharaoh`s house.
12:17 Yahweh plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai, Abram`s wife.
12:18 Pharaoh called Abram, and said, "What is this that you have done to me? Why didn`t you tell me that she was your wife?
12:19 Why did you say, `She is my sister,` so that I took her to be my wife? Now therefore, see your wife, take her, and go your way."
12:20 Pharaoh gave men charge concerning him: and they brought him on the way, and his wife, and all that he had.
