1 Abraham left there for the region of the Negeb, and settled between Kadesh and Shur. While staying in Gerar,
Gen 26:6  Gen 18:1  Gen 26:1  Gen 16:1  Gen 16:7  Gen 16:14  1Sam 15:7 

2 Abraham said of his wife Sarah, 'She is my sister,' and Abimelech the king of Gerar had Sarah brought to him.
Gen 12:15  Gen 26:7  Gen 12:11-13  2Chr 19:2  2Chr 32:31  Col 3:9  Eccl 7:20 

3 But God visited Abimelech in a dream one night. 'You are to die,' he told him, 'because of the woman you have taken, for she is a married woman.'
Gen 20:7  Job 33:15  Ps 105:14  Matt 1:20  Matt 27:19  Ezek 33:14-15  Gen 28:12 

4 Abimelech, however, had not gone near her; so he said, 'Lord, would you kill someone even if he is upright?
1Chr 21:17  Gen 18:23-25  2Sam 4:11  Gen 19:24  Gen 20:6  Gen 20:17-18 

5 Did he not tell me himself, "She is my sister"? And she herself said, "He is my brother." I did this with a clear conscience and clean hands.'
1Kgs 9:4  Ps 7:8  1Chr 29:17  1Thess 2:10  1Tim 1:13  2Cor 1:12  2Kgs 20:3 

6 'Yes, I know,' God replied in the dream, 'that you did this with a clear conscience and I myself prevented you from sinning against me. That was why I did not let you touch her.
1Sam 25:26  1Sam 25:34  Gen 31:7  Gen 39:9  Ps 51:4  1Cor 7:1  2Cor 6:17 

7 Now send the man's wife back; for he is a prophet and can intercede on your behalf for your life. But understand that if you do not send her back, this means death for you and all yours.'
1Sam 7:5  Job 42:8  2Sam 24:17  2Kgs 5:11  Num 16:32-33  1John 5:16  1Kgs 13:6 

8 Early next morning, Abimelech summoned his full court and told them the whole story, at which the people were very much afraid.

9 Then summoning Abraham, Abimelech said to him, 'What have you done to us? What wrong have I done you, for you to bring such guilt on me and on my kingdom? You had no right to treat me like this.'
Gen 12:18  Gen 26:10  Gen 34:7  Gen 39:9  1Sam 26:18-19  2Sam 12:5  2Sam 12:10-11 

10 Abimelech then said to Abraham, 'What possessed you to do such a thing?'

11 'Because', Abraham replied, 'I thought there would be no fear of God here and that I should be killed for the sake of my wife.
Gen 12:12  Gen 26:7  Prov 16:6  Gen 42:18  Neh 5:15  Gen 22:12  Job 1:1 

12 Anyway, she really is my sister, my father's daughter though not my mother's, besides being my wife.
Gen 11:29  1Thess 5:22  Gen 12:13 

13 So when God made me wander far from my father's home I said to her, "There is an act of love you can do me: everywhere we go, say of me that I am your brother." '
Gen 12:1  Gen 12:9  1Sam 23:21  Acts 5:9  Acts 7:3-5  Gen 12:11-20  Heb 11:8 

14 Abimelech took sheep, cattle, men and women slaves, and presented them to Abraham, and gave him back his wife Sarah.
Gen 12:16  Gen 12:19-20  Gen 20:2  Gen 20:7  Gen 20:11 

15 And Abimelech said, 'Look, my land is open to you. Settle wherever you please.'
Gen 13:9  Gen 34:10  Gen 47:6 

16 To Sarah he said, 'Look, I am giving your brother a thousand pieces of silver. This will allay suspicions about you, as far as all the people round you are concerned; you have been completely vindicated.'
Gen 20:5  Prov 27:5  Gen 24:65  1Chr 21:3-6  Gen 26:11  Jonah 1:6  Rev 3:19 

17 Abraham then interceded with God, and God healed Abimelech, his wife and his slave-girls, so that they could have children,
Jas 5:16  Phil 4:6  1Sam 5:11-12  1Thess 5:25  Ezra 6:10  Gen 20:7  Gen 29:31 

18 for Yahweh had made all the women of Abimelech's household barren on account of Sarah, Abraham's wife.
Gen 12:17  1Sam 1:6  1Sam 5:10  Gen 16:2  Gen 20:7  Gen 30:2
