UAbrahama wasesuka lapho waya elizweni leningizimu a , wahlala phakathi kweKadeshi leShuri b  wahlala njengowezizwe c  eGerari d . UAbrahama wasesithi ngoSara umkakhe: Ungudadewethu e . UAbhimeleki inkosi yeGerari wathuma-ke, wathatha uSara. Kodwa uNkulunkulu weza f  kuAbhimeleki ephutsheni g  ebusuku, wathi kuye: Khangela, ufile h  ngenxa yowesifazana omthetheyo, ngoba uganile endodeni. Kodwa uAbhimeleki wayengasondelanga kuye. Ngakho wathi: Nkosi, uzabhubhisa lesizwe esilungileyo i  yini? Kayisuye yini othe kimi: Ungudadewethu? Laye uqobo wasesithi: Ungumnewethu. Ngobuqotho benhliziyo yami langobuhlophe bezandla zami ngikwenzile lokhu. UNkulunkulu wasesithi kuye ephutsheni: Lami sengazile ukuthi ngobuqotho benhliziyo yakho ukwenzile lokhu; lami futhi ngikuvimbele ukuze ungoni kimi j ; ngenxa yalokhu kangikuvumelanga ukuthi umthinte. Ngakho-ke buyisela umfazi wendoda, ngoba ingumprofethi; njalo izakukhulekela k  ukuze uphile; kodwa uba ungambuyiseli, yazi ukuthi isibili uzakufa wena labo bonke abangabakho l . UAbhimeleki wasevuka ekuseni kakhulu, wabiza zonke inceku zakhe, wakhuluma wonke lamazwi endlebeni zazo; njalo amadoda esaba kakhulu. UAbhimeleki wasembiza uAbrahama, wathi kuye: Wenzeni kithi? Ngoneni kuwe ukuthi ungilethele mina lombuso wami isono esikhulu? Wenze kimi izenzo ezingafanelanga ukwenziwa m . 10 UAbhimeleki wasesithi kuAbrahama: Uboneni, uze wenze into le? 11 UAbrahama wasesithi: Ngoba ngacabanga ukuthi: Isibili ukwesaba uNkulunkulu kakukho kulindawo n ; njalo bazangibulala ngenxa yomkami. 12 Kanti-ke isibili ungudadewethu o , uyindodakazi kababa, kodwa kasiyo indodakazi kamama; wasesiba ngumkami. 13 Kwasekusithi mhla uNkulunkulu engizulisa ngisuka endlini kababa p  ngasengisithi kuye: Lo ngumusa ozawenza kimi, kuzo zonke indawo esizafika kuzo, uthi ngami: Ungumnewethu q . 14 UAbhimeleki wasethatha izimvu lezinkomo lezinceku lezincekukazi r , wapha uAbrahama, wambuyisela uSara umkakhe. 15 UAbhimeleki wasesithi: Khangela, ilizwe lami liphambi kwakho s ; hlala lapho okuhle khona emehlweni akho. 16 LakuSara wathi: Khangela, ngimnikile umnewenu t  inhlamvu zesiliva eziyinkulungwane; khangela, uyisisibekelo samehlo u  kuwe, kuye wonke olawe, labo bonke, njalo ukhuziwe v .

17 UAbrahama wasekhuleka kuNkulunkulu; uNkulunkulu wasemsilisa uAbhimeleki lomkakhe lencekukazi zakhe, ukuze bazale. 18 Ngoba i Nkosi yayizivalile ngokupheleleyo izizalo w  zonke zabendlu kaAbhimeleki ngenxa kaSara umkaAbrahama.
