    SEV Biblia, Chapter 12:12

    y será, que cuando te vean los egipcios, dirán: Su mujer es; y me matarán a mí, y a ti te darán la vida.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 12:13

    Verse 13. Say, I
    pray thee, thou art my sister] Abram did not wish his wife to tell a falsehood, but he wished her to suppress a part of the truth.From chap. xx. 12, it is evident she was his step-sister, i.e., his sister by his father, but by a different mother. Some suppose Sarai was the daughter of Haran, and consequently the grand-daughter of Terah: this opinion seems to be founded on chap. xi. 29, where Iscah is thought to be the same with Sarai, but the supposition has not a sufficiency of probability to support it.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 10-20 - There is no
    state on earth free from trials, nor any character fre from blemishes. There was famine in Canaan, the glory of all lands, an unbelief, with the evils it ever brings, in Abram the father of the faithful. Perfect happiness and perfect purity dwell only in heaven Abram, when he must for a time quit Canaan, goes to Egypt, that he might not seem to look back, and meaning to tarry there no longer tha needful. There Abram dissembled his relation to Sarai, equivocated, an taught his wife and his attendants to do so too. He concealed a truth so as in effect to deny it, and exposed thereby both his wife and the Egyptians to sin. The grace Abram was most noted for, was faith; yet he thus fell through unbelief and distrust of the Divine providence, eve after God had appeared to him twice. Alas, what will become of wea faith, when strong faith is thus shaken! If God did not deliver us many a time, out of straits and distresses which we bring ourselve into, by our own sin and folly, we should be ruined. He deals not with us according to our deserts. Those are happy chastisements that hinde us in a sinful way, and bring us to our duty, particularly to the duty of restoring what we have wrongfully taken or kept. Pharaoh's reproo of Abram was very just: What is this that thou hast done? Ho unbecoming a wise and good man! If those who profess religion, do tha which is unfair and deceptive, especially if they say that whic borders upon a lie, they must expect to hear of it; and they have reason to thank those who will tell them of it. The sending away wa kind. Pharaoh was so far from any design to kill Abram, as he feared that he took particular care of him. We often perplex ourselves with fears which are altogether groundless. Many a time we fear where n fear is. Pharaoh charged his men not to hurt Abram in any thing. It is not enough for those in authority, that they do not hurt themselves they must keep their servants and those about them from doing hurt __________________________________________________________________
