The First Book of Moses, called Genesis

Chapter 12

1

Now the LORD had said4 unto Abram, Get3 thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew55 thee:

2

And I will make4 of thee a great nation, and I will bless17 thee, and make thy name great;17 and thou shalt be a blessing:

3

And I will bless17 them that bless18 thee, and curse4 him that curseth18 thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.8

4

So Abram departed,4 as the LORD had spoken14 unto him; and Lot went4 with him: and Abram [was] seventy 8141 and five years old when he departed2 out of Haran.

5

And Abram took4 Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered,1 and the souls that they had gotten1 in Haran; and they went forth4 to go2 into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.4

6

And Abram passed4 through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite [was] then in the land.

7

And the LORD appeared11 unto Abram, and said,4 Unto thy seed will I give4 this land: and there builded4 he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared12 unto him.

8

And he removed55 from thence unto a mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched4 his tent, [having] Bethel on the west, and Hai on the east: and there he builded4 an altar unto the LORD, and called4 upon the name of the LORD.

9

And Abram journeyed,4 going2 on still2 toward the south.

10

And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down4 into Egypt to sojourn2 there; for the famine [was] grievous in the land.

11

And it came to pass, when he was come near52 to enter into2 Egypt, that he said4 unto Sarai his wife, Behold now, I know1 that thou [art] a fair woman to look upon:

12

Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see4 thee, that they shall say,1 This [is] his wife: and they will kill1 me, but they will save thee alive.17

13

Say,3 I pray thee, thou [art] my sister: that it may be well4 with me for thy sake; and my soul shall live1 because of thee.

14

And it came to pass, that, when Abram was come2 into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld4 the woman that she [was] very fair.

15

The princes also of Pharaoh saw4 her, and commended17 her before Pharaoh: and the woman was taken93 into Pharaoh's house.

16

And he entreated52 Abram well for her sake: and he had sheep, and oxen, and he asses, and menservants, and maidservants, and she asses, and camels.

17

And the LORD plagued17 Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai Abram's wife.

18

And Pharaoh called4 Abram, and said,4 What [is] this [that] thou hast done1 unto me? why didst thou not tell52 me that she [was] thy wife?

19

Why saidst1 thou, She [is] my sister? so I might have taken4 her to me to wife: now therefore behold thy wife, take3 [her], and go3 thy way.

20

And Pharaoh commanded17 [his] men concerning him: and they sent him away,17 and his wife, and all that he had.
