Now the LORD 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.
I will make of you a great nation. I will bless you and make your name great. You will be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you. All of the families of the earth will be blessed in you."

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."

The princes of Pharaoh saw her, and praised her to Pharaoh; and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house.
He dealt well with Abram for her sake. He had sheep, cattle, male donkeys, male servants, female servants, female donkeys, and camels.
the LORD plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai, Abram's wife.
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?
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."
Pharaoh commanded men concerning him, and they brought him on the way with his wife and all that he had.
