View In My Bible
6 Then God said to him in the dream, "Yes, I know that in the integrity of your heart you have done this, and I also a1kept you from sinning against Me; therefore I did not let you touch her. 7 "Now therefore, restore the man's wife, for 2he is a prophet, and he will pray for you and you will live. But if you do not restore her, know that you shall surely die, you and all who are yours." 8 So Abimelech arose early in the morning and called all his servants and told all these things in their hearing ; and the men were greatly frightened. 9 3Then Abimelech called Abraham and said to him, "What have you done to us? And bhow have I sinned against you, that you have brought on me and on my kingdom 4a great sin ? You have done to me cthings that ought not to be done." 10 And Abimelech said to Abraham, "What have you dencountered, that you have done this thing ?" 11 Abraham said, "Because I thought, surely there is no 5fear of God in this place, and 6they will kill me because of my wife. 12 "Besides, she actually is my sister, the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother, and she became my wife ; 13 and it came about, when 7God caused me to wander from my father's house, that I said to her, 'This is ethe kindness which you will show to me: feverywhere we go, 8say of me, "He is my brother.""' 14 9Abimelech then took sheep and oxen and male and female servants , and gave them to Abraham, and restored his wife Sarah to him. 15 Abimelech said, "10Behold, my land is before you; gsettle wherever hyou please ." 16 To Sarah he said, "Behold, I have given your 11brother a thousand pieces of silver ; behold, it is iyour vindication before all who are with you, and before all men you are cleared."
