Genesis 12

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] [39] [40] [41] [42] [43] [44] [45] [46] [47] [48] [49] [50]

GEN 12:1 Now Yahweh said to Abram, "Get out of your country, and from your relatives, and from your father's house, to the land that I will show you.

GEN 12:2 I will make of you a great nation. I will bless you, and make your name great. You will be a blessing.

GEN 12:3 I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you. In you will all of the families of the earth be blessed."

GEN 12:4 So Abram went, as Yahweh had spoken to him. Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed out of Haran.

GEN 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.

GEN 12:6 Abram passed through the land to the place of Shechem, to the oak of Moreh. The Canaanite was then in the land.

GEN 12:7 Yahweh appeared to Abram, and said, "I will give this land to your seed{or, offspring}." He built an altar there to Yahweh, who appeared to him.

GEN 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.

GEN 12:9 Abram traveled, going on still toward the South.

GEN 12:10 There was a famine in the land. Abram went down into Egypt to live as a foreigner there, for the famine was sore in the land.

GEN 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.

GEN 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.

GEN 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."

GEN 12:14 It happened that when Abram had come into Egypt, the Egyptians saw that the woman was very beautiful.

GEN 12:15 The princes of Pharaoh saw her, and praised her to Pharaoh; and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house.

GEN 12:16 He dealt well with Abram for her sake. He had sheep, and oxen, and male donkeys, and men-servants, and maid-servants, and female donkeys, and camels.

GEN 12:17 Yahweh plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai, Abram's wife.

GEN 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?

GEN 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."

GEN 12:20 Pharaoh gave men charge concerning him: and they brought him on the way, and his wife, and all that he had.
