Genesis 26:2-12

2 The LORD appeared to him, and said, "Don't go down into Mitzrayim. Dwell in the land which I will tell you of.
3 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with you, and will bless you. For to you, and to your seed, I will give all these lands, and I will establish the oath which I swore to Avraham your father.
4 I will multiply your seed as the stars of the sky, and will give to your seed all these lands. In your seed will all the nations of the eretz be blessed,
5 because Avraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my mitzvot, my statutes, and my laws."
6 Yitzchak lived in Gerar.
7 The men of the place asked him about his wife. He said, "She is my sister," for he was afraid to say, "My wife," lest, he thought, the men of the place might kill me for Rivka, because she was beautiful to look on.
8 It happened, when he had been there a long time, that Avimelekh king of the Pelishtim looked out at a window, and saw, and, behold, Yitzchak was caressing Rivka, his wife.
9 Avimelekh called Yitzchak, and said, "Behold, surely she is your wife. Why did you say, 'She is my sister?'" Yitzchak said to him, "Because I said, 'Lest I die because of her.'"
10 Avimelekh said, "What is this you have done to us? One of the people might easily have lain with your wife, and you would have brought guilt on us!"
11 Avimelekh charged all the people, saying, "He who touches this man or his wife will surely be put to death."
12 Yitzchak sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year one hundred times what he planted. The LORD blessed him.
