Genesis 12
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And LORD JEHOVAH said to Abram: “Go from your land and from where you were born and from the house of your father to the land I shall declare to you:

2And I shall make you a great people and I shall bless you and I shall enlarge your name and it will be blessed:

3And I shall bless those blessing you, and those cursing you I shall curse, and in you and in your seed all the generations of the Earth shall be blessed.”

4And Abram did as LORD JEHOVAH said to him and Lot went on with him and Abram was seventy and five years old when he went out from Kharan. 5And Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot the son of his brother and all their possessions that they owned and the souls that they had produced in Kharan, and they went out to go to the land of Canaan and they came to the land of Canaan. 6And Abram passed by in the land unto the region of Shekim and unto the oak of Mamrey and the Canaanites were still dwelling in the land. 7And LORD JEHOVAH was revealed unto Abram and said to him: “To your seed I shall give this land.” And he built there an altar to LORD JEHOVAH who was revealed unto him. 8And he departed from there to a mountain from the East to BaythEil and he pitched a tabernacle, BaythEil from the West and Ai from the East, and he built there an altar to LORD JEHOVAH and he called on the Name of LORD JEHOVAH. 9And Abram picked up and he went on and picked up to the south.

10And there was a famine in the land and Abram came down to Egypt to dwell there because the famine was very severe in the land. 11And it was that when he approached to enter Egypt, he said to Sarai his wife, “Behold, I know that you are a woman beautiful in appearance: 12And when the Egyptians will see you they will say, ‘This is his wife’; they will murder me and save you. 13Say, ‘I am his sister’, so that it will be good for me because of you and my soul will live because of you.” 14And it happened that when Abram entered Egypt, the Egyptians saw his wife that she was very beautiful. 15And the Princes of Pharaoh saw her and praised her before Pharaoh, and the woman was led to the house of Pharaoh. 16And it was good for Abram because of her, and he had sheep and bulls and donkeys and male Servants and female Servants and female donkeys and camels.

17And LORD JEHOVAH struck Pharaoh with great plagues, and the children of his house, because of Sarai, the wife of Abram. 18And Pharaoh called Abram and said to him, “What is this that you have done to me? Why did you not show me that she is your wife? 19And why did you say ‘She is my sister’, and I have taken her to me as a wife? Now, behold, take your wife and go.” 20And Pharaoh commanded a man concerning him and he sent him out, him and his wife and everything that he had.
