But the LORD inflicted serious diseases on Pharaoh and his household because of Abram's wife Sarai.
King James Bible
And the LORD plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai Abram's wife.
American Standard Version
And Jehovah plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai, Abram's wife.
Young's Literal Translation
And Jehovah plagueth Pharaoh and his house -- great plagues -- for the matter of Sarai, Abram's wife.
Genesis 12:17 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The Lord plagued Pharaoh - What these plagues were we know not. In the parallel case, Genesis 20:18, all the females in the family of Abimelech, who had taken Sarah in nearly the same way, were made barren; possibly this might have been the case here; yet much more seems to be signified by the expression great plagues. Whatever these plagues were, it is evident they were understood by Pharaoh as proofs of the disapprobation of God; and, consequently, even at this time in Egypt there was some knowledge of the primitive and true religion.
