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.

1And Jehovah saith unto Abram, ‘Go for thyself, from thy land, and from thy kindred, and from the house of thy father, unto the land which I shew thee.
2And I make thee become a great nation, and bless thee, and make thy name great; and be thou a blessing.
3And I bless those blessing thee, and him who is disesteeming thee I curse, and blessed in thee have been all families of the ground.’
4And Abram goeth on, as Jehovah hath spoken unto him, and Lot goeth with him, and Abram [is] a son of five and seventy years in his going out from Charan.
5And Abram taketh Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they have gained, and the persons that they have obtained in Charan; and they go out to go towards the land of Canaan; and they come in to the land of Canaan.
6And Abram passeth over into the land, unto the place Shechem, unto the oak of Moreh; and the Canaanite [is] then in the land.
7And Jehovah appeareth unto Abram, and saith, ‘To thy seed I give this land;’ and he buildeth there an altar to Jehovah, who hath appeared unto him.
8And he removeth from thence towards a mountain at the east of Beth-El, and stretcheth out the tent (Beth-El at the west, and Hai at the east), and he buildeth there an altar to Jehovah, and preacheth in the name of Jehovah.
9And Abram journeyeth, going on and journeying towards the south.
10And there is a famine in the land, and Abram goeth down towards Egypt to sojourn there, for the famine [is] grievous in the land;
11and it cometh to pass as he hath drawn near to enter Egypt, that he saith unto Sarai his wife, ‘Lo, I pray thee, I have known that thou [art] a woman of beautiful appearance;
12and it hath come to pass that the Egyptians see thee, and they have said, ‘This [is] his wife,’ and they have slain me, and thee they keep alive:
13say, I pray thee, thou [art] my sister, so that it is well with me because of thee, and my soul hath lived for thy sake.’
14And it cometh to pass, at the entering of Abram into Egypt, that the Egyptians see the woman that she [is] exceeding fair;
15and princes of Pharaoh see her, and praise her unto Pharaoh, and the woman is taken [to] Pharaoh's house;
16and to Abram he hath done good because of her, and he hath sheep and oxen, and he-asses, and men-servants, and handmaids, and she-asses, and camels.
17And Jehovah plagueth Pharaoh and his house — great plagues — for the matter of Sarai, Abram's wife.
18And Pharaoh calleth for Abram, and saith, ‘What [is] this thou hast done to me? why hast thou not declared to me that she [is] thy wife?
19Why hast thou said, She [is] my sister, and I take her to myself for a wife? and now, lo, thy wife, take and go.’
20And Pharaoh chargeth men concerning him, and they send him away, and his wife, an all that he hath.
