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
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.
