one Abraham rose up from there to the south and settled between Kadesh and between Sur; and was at a time in Gerard.
2 And Abraham said of Sarah his wife: she is my sister. And Abimelech king of Gerar sent and took Sarah.

3 And God came to Abimelech at night in a dream and said to him: behold, you will die for the woman whom you took, for she has a husband.
4 Abimelech did not touch her and said: Lord! are you really going to destroy an innocent people?
5 Didn't he tell me: is she my sister? And she herself said: he is my brother. I did this in the simplicity of my heart and in the cleanliness of my hands.
6 And God said to him in a dream: and I know that you did this in the simplicity of your heart, and kept you from sin before Me, and therefore did not allow you to touch it;
7 now return the wife to the husband, for he is a prophet and will pray for you, and you will be alive; and if you do not return, then know that you and all yours will certainly die.

eight And Abimelech arose early in the morning, and called all his servants, and retold all these words in their ears; and these people were very afraid.
nine And Abimelech called upon Abraham and said to him, What have you done to us? How did I sin against you that you brought a great sin on me and on my kingdom? You have done with me what you do not do.
ten And Abimelech said to Abraham, What did you mean when you did this thing?
eleven Abraham said: I thought that there was no fear of God in place, and they would kill me for my wife;
12 indeed she is my sister: she is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and became my wife;
thirteen when God led me to wander from my father’s house, I told her: do this mercy to me, no matter where we come, say everywhere about me: this is my brother.

fourteen And Abimelech took the flocks and herds, and the slaves and slaves, and gave them to Abraham; and he returned to him Sarah his wife.
fifteen And Abimelech said, Behold, my land is before you; live wherever you please.
sixteen And Sarah said: Behold, I have given thy brother a thousand shekels of silver; behold, this is a veil for your eyes before all who are with you, and before all you are justified.
17 And Abraham prayed to God, and God healed Abimelech, and his wife, and his slaves, and they began to give birth;
18 for the Lord has made every womb in the house of Abimelech for Sarah, the wife of Abraham.
