Genesis 20:1 And Abraham journeyed from thence toward the south country,
and dwelled between Kadesh and Shur, and sojourned in Gerar.
2 And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, She is my sister: and Abimelech
king of Gerar sent, and took Sarah.
3 But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him,
Behold, thou art but a dead man, for the woman which thou hast taken;
for she is a man's wife.
4 But Abimelech had not come near her: and he said, Lord, wilt thou slay
also a righteous nation?
5 Said he not unto me, She is my sister? and she, even she herself said,
He is my brother: in the integrity of my heart and innocency of my hands
have I done this.
6 And God said unto him in a dream, Yea, I know that thou didst this in
the integrity of thy heart; for I also withheld thee from sinning
against me: therefore suffered I thee not to touch her.
7 Now therefore restore the man his wife; for he is a prophet, and he
shall pray for thee, and thou shalt live: and if thou restore her not,

on my kingdom a great sin? thou hast done deeds unto me that ought not

10 And Abimelech said unto Abraham, What sawest thou, that thou hast
done this thing?
11 And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely the fear of God is not in
this place; and they will slay me for my wife's sake.
12 And yet indeed she is my sister; she is the daughter of my father,
but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife.
13 And it came to pass, when God caused me to wander from my father's
house, that I said unto her, This is thy kindness which thou shalt shew
unto me; at every place whither we shall come, say of me, He is my
14 And Abimelech took sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and women
servants, and gave them unto Abraham, and restored him Sarah his wife.
15 And Abimelech said, Behold, my land is before thee: dwell where it
16 And unto Sarah he said, Behold, I have given thy brother a thousand
pieces of silver: behold, he is to thee a covering of the eyes, unto all
that are with thee, and with all other: thus she was reproved.
17 So Abraham prayed unto God: and God healed Abimelech, and his wife,

Abimelech, because of Sarah Abraham's wife.
