20:1 And Abraham [H85] journeyed [H5265] from thence toward the south [H5045] country [H776] , and dwelled [H3427] between Kadesh [H6946] and Shur [H7793] , and sojourned [H1481] in Gerar [H1642] .

20:2 And Abraham [H85] said [H559] of [H413] Sarah [H8283] his wife [H802] , She [is] my sister [H269] : and Abimelech [H40] king [H4428] of Gerar [H1642] sent [H7971] , and took [H3947] Sarah [H8283] .

20:3 But God [H430] came [H935] to Abimelech [H40] in a dream [H2472] by night [H3915] , and said [H559] to him, Behold, thou [art but] a dead man [H4191] , for the woman [H802] which thou hast taken [H3947] ; for she [is] a man's [H1167] wife [H1166] .(a man's: Heb. married to an husband)

20:4 But Abimelech [H40] had not come near [H7126] her: and he said [H559] , Lord [H136] , wilt thou slay [H2026] also a righteous [H6662] nation [H1471] ?

20:5 Said [H559] he not unto me, She [H1931] [is] my sister [H269] ? and she [H1931] , even [H1571] she [H1931] herself said [H559] , He [is] my brother [H251] : in the integrity [H8537] of my heart [H3824] and innocency [H5356] of my hands [H3709] have I done [H6213] this.(integrity: or, simplicity, or, sincerity)

20:6 And God [H430] said [H559] unto him in a dream [H2472] , Yea [H1571] , I know [H3045] that thou didst [H6213] this in the integrity [H8537] of thy heart [H3824] ; for I also withheld [H2820] thee from sinning [H2398] against me: therefore suffered [H5414] I thee not to touch [H5060] her.

20:7 Now therefore restore [H7725] the man [H376] [his] wife [H802] ; for he [is] a prophet [H5030] , and he shall pray [H6419] for thee [H1157] , and thou shalt live [H2421] : and if thou restore [H7725] [her] not, know [H3045] thou that thou shalt surely [H4191] die [H4191] , thou, and all that [are] thine.

20:8 Therefore Abimelech [H40] rose early [H7925] in the morning [H1242] , and called [H7121] all his servants [H5650] , and told [H1696] all these things [H1697] in their ears [H241] : and the men [H582] were sore [H3966] afraid [H3372] .

20:9 Then Abimelech [H40] called [H7121] Abraham [H85] , and said [H559] unto him, What hast thou done [H6213] unto us? and what have I offended [H2398] thee, that thou hast brought [H935] on me and on my kingdom [H4467] a great [H1419] sin [H2401] ? thou hast done [H6213] deeds [H4639] unto me that ought not to be done [H6213] .

20:10 And Abimelech [H40] said [H559] unto Abraham [H85] , What [H4100] sawest thou [H7200] , that thou hast done [H6213] this thing [H1697] ?

20:11 And Abraham [H85] said [H559] , Because I thought [H559] , Surely [H7535] the fear [H3374] of God [H430] [is] not in this place [H4725] ; and they will slay me [H2026] for my wife's [H802] sake [H1697] .

20:12 And yet indeed [H546] [she is] my sister [H269] ; she [is] the daughter [H1323] of my father [H1] , but not the daughter [H1323] of my mother [H517] ; and she became my wife [H802] .

20:13 And it came to pass, when God [H430] caused me to wander [H8582] from my father's [H1] house [H1004] , that I said [H559] unto her, This [is] thy kindness [H2617] which thou shalt shew [H6213] unto me; at every place [H4725] whither we shall come [H935] , say [H559] of me, He [is] my brother [H251] .

20:14 And Abimelech [H40] took [H3947] sheep [H6629] , and oxen [H1241] , and menservants [H5650] , and womenservants [H8198] , and gave [H5414] [them] unto Abraham [H85] , and restored [H7725] him Sarah [H8283] his wife [H802] .

20:15 And Abimelech [H40] said [H559] , Behold, my land [H776] [is] before thee [H6440] : dwell [H3427] where it pleaseth [H2896] [H5869] thee.(where: Heb. as is good in thine eyes)

20:16 And unto Sarah [H8283] he said [H559] , Behold, I have given [H5414] thy brother [H251] a thousand [H505] [pieces] of silver [H3701] : behold, he [is] to thee a covering [H3682] of the eyes [H5869] , unto all that [are] with thee, and with all [other]: thus she was reproved [H3198] .

20:17 So Abraham [H85] prayed [H6419] unto God [H430] : and God [H430] healed [H7495] Abimelech [H40] , and his wife [H802] , and his maidservants [H519] ; and they bare [H3205] [children].

20:18 For the LORD [H3068] had fast [H6113] closed up [H6113] all the wombs [H7358] of the house [H1004] of Abimelech [H40] , because [H1697] of Sarah [H8283] Abraham's [H85] wife [H802] .
