Abram Journeys to Egypt

1 Now the R273 LORD said to Abram, "Go F176 forth from your country, And from your relatives And from your father's house, To the land which I will show you;

2 And I R274 will make you a great nation,

And I R275 will bless you,

And make your name great;

And so you R276 F177 shall be a blessing;

3 And I R277 will bless those who bless you,

And the one who curses F178 you I will curse. F179

And R278 in you all the families of the earth will be blessed."

4 So Abram went forth as the LORD had spoken to him; and Lot R279 went with him. Now Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran. 5 Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his nephew, and all their possessions R280 which they had accumulated, and the R281 persons F180 which they had acquired in Haran, and they set F181 out for the land of Canaan; thus R282 they came to the land of Canaan. 6 Abram passed through the land as far as the site of Shechem, R283 to the oak F182 of Moreh. Now the Canaanite was then in the land. 7 The LORD appeared R284 to Abram and said, "To R285 your descendants F183 I will give this land." So he built an R286 altar there to the LORD who had appeared to him. 8 Then he proceeded from there to the mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent, with Bethel R287 on the west and Ai on the east; and there he built an altar to the LORD and called R288 upon the name of the LORD. 9 Abram journeyed on, continuing toward the R289 Negev. F184

10 Now there was a R290 famine in the land; so Abram went down to Egypt to sojourn there, for the famine was severe R291 in the land. 11 It came about when he came F185 near to Egypt, that he said to Sarai his wife, "See now, I know that you are a beautiful R292 F186 woman; 12 and R293 when the Egyptians see you, they will say, `This is his wife'; and they will kill me, but they will let you live. 13 "Please say that you are my R294 sister so that it may go well with me because of you, and that I R295 F187 may live on account of you." 14 It came about when Abram came into Egypt, the Egyptians saw F188 that the woman was very beautiful. 15 Pharaoh's officials saw her and praised her to Pharaoh; and the R296 woman was taken into Pharaoh's house. 16 Therefore he R297 treated Abram well for her sake; and gave R298 F189 him sheep and oxen and donkeys and male and female servants and female donkeys and camels.

17 But the LORD struck R299 Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai, Abram's wife. 18 Then Pharaoh called Abram and said, "What R300 is this you have done to me? Why did you not tell me that she was your wife? 19 "Why did you say, `She is my sister,' so that I took her for my wife? Now then, here F190 is your wife, take her and go." 20 Pharaoh commanded his men concerning him; and they escorted F191 him away, with his wife and all that belonged to him.
