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.

Genesis 12
1¶ But the Lord had said unto Abram, Depart out of thy country and from thy nature and from thy father’s house unto a land that I will show thee;
2and I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing.
3And I will bless those that bless thee and curse those that curse thee, and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
4¶ So Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken unto him, and Lot went with him, and Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed out of Haran.
5And Abram took Sarai, his wife, and Lot, his brother’s son, and all their substance that they had gathered and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.
6¶ And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.
7And the Lord appeared unto Abram and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land, and there he built an altar unto the Lord, who appeared unto him.
8And he went from there unto a mountain on the east of Bethel and pitched his tent, having Bethel on the west and Hai on the east; and there he built an altar unto the Lord and called upon the name of the Lord.
9And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the Negev (south desert).
10¶ And there was a famine in the land, and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there, for the famine was grievous in the land.
11And it came to pass when he was come near to enter into Egypt that he said unto Sarai, his wife, Behold now, I know that thou art a fair woman to look upon;
12therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see thee that they shall say, This is his wife, and they will kill me, but they will save thee alive.
13Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister, that it may be well with me for thy sake; and my soul shall live because of thee.
14¶ And it came to pass that when Abram was come into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair.
15The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before Pharaoh, and the woman was taken into Pharaoh’s house.
16And he treated Abram well for her sake: and he had sheep and oxen and he asses and menslaves and maidslaves and she asses and camels.
17But the Lord plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai, Abram’s wife.
18And Pharaoh called Abram and said, What is this that thou hast done unto me? Why didst thou not tell me that she was thy wife?
19Why didst thou say, She is my sister? I might have taken her to me to wife; now, therefore, behold thy wife, take her, and go away.
20Then Pharaoh commanded his men concerning him; and they sent him away and his wife with all that he had.
