Genesis 12:10-20 - Abram In Egypt
10 There was a famine in the land, so Abram went down to Egypt to live because the famine was so severe. 11 When he was about to enter Egypt, he told his wife Sarai, "Look, I'm aware that you're a beautiful woman. 12 When the Egyptians see you, they will say, "She is his wife.' Then they'll kill me, but allow you to live. 13 Please say that you are my sister, so things will go well for me for your sake. That way, you'll be saving my life." 14 As Abram was entering Egypt, the Egyptians noticed how beautiful Sarai was. 15 When Pharaoh's officials saw her, they brought her to the attention of Pharaoh and took the woman to Pharaoh's palace. 16 He treated Abram well because of her, so Abram acquired sheep, oxen, male and female donkeys, male and female servants, and camels.
17 But the LORD afflicted Pharaoh and his household with severe plagues because of Sarai, Abram's wife. 18 Pharaoh summoned Abram and asked, "What have you done to me! Why didn't you tell me that she was your wife? 19 Why did you say, "She is my sister,' so that I took her as a wife for myself? Now, here is your wife! Take her and get out!" 20 So Pharaoh assigned men to Abram, and they escorted him, his wife, and all that he had out of the country.
