Genesis 12

12
1Now the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) had said unto Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation), Get youi out of youri country, and from youri family, and from youri father’s house, unto a land that I will show youi:
2And I will make of youi a great nation, and I will bless youi, and make youri name great; and youi shall be a blessing:
3And I will bless them that bless youi, and curse him that curses youi: and in youi shall all families of the earth be Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous).
4So Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation) departed, as the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) had spoken unto him; and Lot (Covering) went with him: and Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation) [was] seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran [mountaineer] (Mountaineer or Mountainous).
5And Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation) took Sarai (My Princess) his wife, and Lot (Covering) his brother’s son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran [mountaineer] (Mountaineer or Mountainous); and they went forth to go into the land of Kena’an (merchant; trader; or that humbles and subdues); and into the land of Kena’an (merchant; trader; or that humbles and subdues) they came.
6And Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation) passed through the land unto the place of Sh’khem [back or shoulder, portion] (Shoulder), unto the plain of Giv’at-Moreh [Hill of Teacher] (teacher). And the Kena’ani (merchants; traders; or those that humble and subdue) [was] then in the land.
7And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) appeared unto Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation), and said, Unto youri seed will I give this land: and there built He an altar unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), who appeared unto him.
8And he removed from there unto a mountain on the east of Beit-El (House of EL the Powerful God), and pitched his tent, [having] Beit-El (House of EL the Powerful God) on the west, and ‘‘Ai [Heap of Ruins] (ruin) on the east: and there He built an altar unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), and called upon the name of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate).
9And Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation) journeyed, going on still toward the south.
10And there was a famine in the land: and Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation) went down into Mitzrayim [Egypt] (Double Distress or Double Stronghold, Black Land) to sojourn there; for the famine [was] grievous in the land.
11And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into Mitzrayim [Egypt] (Double Distress or Double Stronghold, Black Land), that he said unto Sarai (My Princess) his wife, Behold now, I know that youi are a fair woman to look upon:
12Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Mitzrayimot [Egyptians] (People of the Black Land) shall see youi, that they shall say, This [is] his wife: and they will kill me, but they will save youi alive.
13Say, I pray youi, youi are my sister: that it may be well with me for youri sake; and my soul shall live because of youi.
14And it came to pass, that, when Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation) was come into Mitzrayim [Egypt] (Double Distress or Double Stronghold, Black Land), the Mitzrayimot [Egyptians] (People of the Black Land) beheld the woman that she [was] very fair.
15The princes also of Pharaoh (Great House) saw her, and commended her before Pharaoh (Great House): and the woman was taken into Pharaoh’s (Great House) house.
16And he entreated Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation) well for her sake: and he had sheep, and oxen, and he donkeys, and menservants, and maidservants, and she donkeys, and camels.
17And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) plagued Pharaoh (Great House) and his house with great plagues because of Sarai (My Princess) Avram’s (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation) wife.
18And Pharaoh (Great House) called Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation), and said, What [is] this [that] youi have done unto me? why did youi not tell me that she [was youri] wife?
19Why [did youi] say, She [is] my sister? so I might have taken her to me to wife: now therefore behold youri wife, take [her], and go youri way.
20And Pharaoh (Great House) commanded [his] men concerning him: and they sent him away, and his wife, and all that he had.

1Now Hashem had said unto Avram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from the bais avicha, unto ha'aretz that I will show thee; 2And I will make of thee a goy gadol (great nation), and I will bless thee, and make thy shem great; and thou shalt be a berakhah (blessing); 3And I will bless the one blessing you, and curse him that curses you; and kol mishpochot haadamah shall be blessed through you.[T.N. There is a berakhah in this verse that many do not know but that every true follower of Moshiach should know.] 4So Avram departed as Hashem had told him; and Lot went with him; and Avram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Charan. 5And Avram took Sarai his isha, and Lot his brother's son, and all their possessions that they had amassed, and the nefesh that they had gotten in Charan; and they went forth to go into the land of Kena'an; and they arrived in the land of Kena'an. 6And Avram passed through the land unto the makom Shechem, unto Elon Moreh. And the Kena'ani was then in ha'aretz. 7And Hashem appeared unto Avram, and said, Unto thy zera will I give ha'aretz hazot: and there built he a Mizbe'ach unto Hashem, Who appeared unto him. 8And he removed from there unto the harah mikedem Beit-El, and pitched his tent, having Beit-El on the west, and Ai on the east; and there he built a Mizbe'ach unto Hashem,and called upon the Shem of Hashem. 9And Avram journeyed, going on still toward the Negev. 10And there was a ra'av in the land; and Avram went down into Mitzrayim to sojourn there; for the ra'av was severe in ha'aretz. 11And it came to pass, when he was about to enter into Mitzrayim, that he said unto Sarai his isha, Hinei now, I know that thou art an isha yafeh to look upon; 12Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see thee, that they shall say, This is his isha; and they will kill me, but they will save thee alive. 13Say, now, thou art my achot; that it may be well with me for thy sake; and my nefesh shall live on account of thee. 14And it came to pass, that, when Avram was come into Mitzrayim, the Egyptians beheld the isha that she was yafeh me'od. 15The sarim of Pharaoh also saw her, and commended her before Pharaoh; and the isha was taken into Bais Pharaoh. 16And he treated Avram well for her sake: and he acquired sheep and oxen, and male donkeys, and avadim, and shfachot, and female donkeys, and camels. 17And Hashem plagued Pharaoh and his Bais with nega'im gedolim because of Sarai eshet Avram. 18And Pharaoh summoned Avram and said, What is this that thou hast done unto me? Why didst thou not tell me that she was thy isha? 19Why saidst thou, She is my achot? So I might have taken her to me to wife; now therefore, hinei, thy wife, take her, and go! 20And Pharaoh commanded his anashim concerning him; and they sent him away, and his isha, and all that he had.
