Genesis 12


Abram and Lot Enter Canaan

1And the  lord said to Abram, Come forth from out of your land, and from your kin, and from the house of your father, and come into the land which ever I shall show to you. 2And I will make you into [2nation 1a great], and I will bless you, and I will magnify your name, and you will be a blessing. 3And I will bless the ones blessing you; and the ones cursing you, I will curse. And [6will be blessed 7by 8you 1all 2the 3tribes 4of the 5earth]. 4And Abram went just as [2spoke 3to him 1the  lord]. And [2set out 3with 4him 1Lot]. And Abram was [2years old 1seventy-five] when he came forth from out of Haran. 5And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot the son of his brother, and all their possessions, as much as they acquired, and every soul which they acquired from out of Haran. And they went forth to go into the land of Canaan. And they entered into the land of Canaan. 6And Abram traveled through the land unto the place of Shechem unto the [2oak 1high]. And the Canaanites then dwelt the land. 7And the  lord appeared to Abram, and said to him, [3to 4your seed 1I will give 2this land]. And [2built 3there 1Abram] an altar to the  lord, to the one appearing to him. 8And he left from there into the mountain according to the east of Beth-el. And he set up there his tent in Beth-el according to the west, and Hai according to the east. And he built there an altar to the  lord, and he called upon the name of the  lord. 9And Abram departed; and going he encamped in the wilderness.

Abram and Sarai in Egypt

10And there was a famine upon the land. And Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there, for [3grew in strength 1the 2famine] upon the land. 11And it was when Abram approached to enter into Egypt, Abram said to Sarai his wife, I know that [3woman 2a good-looking 1you are]. 12It will be then as when [3shall see 4you 1the 2Egyptians] they will say that his wife is this one, and they will kill me, [3you 1and 2procure]. 13Say then that! [2his sister 1I am]. so that [2good 3to me 1it may become] on account of you, and [2shall live 1my soul] because of you. 14And it came to pass when Abram entered into Egypt, [3were looking at 1the 2Egyptians] his wife, for [3beautiful 1she was 2exceedingly]. 15And [4beheld 5her 1the 2rulers 3of Pharaoh], and praised her to Pharaoh; and they brought her into the house to Pharaoh. 16And [2Abram 3well 1they treated] on account of her, and there existed to him sheep, and calves, and donkeys, and manservants, and maidservants, and mules and camels. 17And the  lord chastised Pharaoh [4chastisements 1with great 2and 3severe], and his house, on account of Sarai the wife of Abram. 18[3calling 1And 2Pharaoh] Abram, said, What is this you did to me, that you reported not to me that [2wife 1she is your]? 19Why did you say that, [2my sister 1She is]; and I took her to myself as wife? And now, behold, your wife is before you -- taking her run from me! 20And Pharaoh charged the men concerning Abram, to escort him out, and his wife, and all, as much as was his, and Lot with him.
