So Abraham prayed unto God
As the Lord had told Abimelech be would, ( Genesis 20:7 ) ; he might pray for the forgiveness of him and his wife, and might give thanks that Sarah had been restored to him; but chiefly it was on account of Abimelech and his family: and God healed Abimelech, and his wife, and his maidservants:
who by reason of some disease were rendered unfit for and incapable of cohabitation with their husbands, and they with them; but upon Abraham's prayer for them, who was heard, they were healed, and the disorder removed; the Targum of Jonathan is,
``his wife and concubines;''and they bare [children];
cohabited and conceived, and bare and brought forth children, all which are comprehended in this expression.
