"Hagar, servant of Sarai," he asked, "Where are you coming from and where are you going?" She answered, "I am running away from my mistress Sarai."
The men asked him, "Where is your wife Sarah?" "There, in the tent," he replied.
The LORD asked Abraham, "Why did Sarah laugh and think, "Am I really going to bear a child, since I'm so old?'
"Should I hide from Abraham what I'm about to do," the LORD asked,
Abraham approached and asked, "Will you actually destroy the righteous along with the wicked?

Now Abimelech had not yet come near her, so he asked, "LORD, will you destroy an innocent nation?
Then Abimelech called Abraham and asked him, "What have you done to us? How have I sinned against you, that you have brought such great sin against me and my kingdom? You've done things to me that ought not to have been done."
Abimelech also asked Abraham, "What could you have been thinking when you did this?"
When God caused me to journey from my father's house, I asked her to do me this favor and say, "He's my brother.'"

Then Abraham's servant ran to meet her and asked her, "Please, let me have a sip of water from your jug."
He asked her, "Whose daughter are you? Please tell me, is there room in your father's house for us to spend the night?"
"So I asked my master, "What if the woman won't come back with me?'
"Before I had finished praying, along came Rebekah with her jug on her shoulder! She went to the spring and drew some water. I asked her to please let me have a drink.
"That's when I asked, "Whose daughter are you?' "She replied, "I'm the daughter of Bethuel, Nahor's son, whom Milcah bore for him.'

But when the infants kept on wrestling each other inside her womb, she asked herself, "Why is this happening?" So she asked the LORD for an explanation.
Later on, the men of that place asked about his wife, so he replied, "She's my sister," because he was afraid to call her "my wife." He kept thinking, ""otherwise, the men around here will kill me on account of Rebekah, since she's very beautiful."
"What have you done to us?" Abimelech asked. "Any minute now, one of the people could have had sex with your wife and you would have caused all of us to be guilty."
"Why have you come to see me," Isaac asked them, "since you hate me so much that you sent me away from you?"
"I'm Esau, your firstborn!" Jacob told his father. "I've done what you asked, so please sit up and eat what I caught, so you can bless me."
"How did you get it so quickly, my son?" Isaac asked. Jacob responded, ""because the LORD your God made me successful."
He asked, "Are you really my son Esau?" "I am," Jacob replied.
But his father Isaac asked him, "Who are you?" "I'm Esau, your firstborn son," he answered.
At this, Isaac began to tremble violently. "Who then," he asked, "hunted some game and brought it to me to eat before you arrived, so that I've blessed him? Indeed, he is blessed."
Then he said, "Isn't his name rightly called Jacob?" Esau asked. "He has circumvented me this second time. First, he took away my birthright, and now, look how he also stole my blessing." Then he added, "Haven't you reserved a blessing for me?"
Jacob asked them, "My brothers, where are you from?" "We're from Haran," they answered.
So he asked them, "How's he doing?" "Very well," they answered. "As a matter of fact, look over there! That's his daughter Rachel, coming here with his sheep."
Later, Laban asked Jacob, "Should you serve me for free, just because you're my nephew? Let's talk about what your wages should be."
That made Jacob angry with Rachel, so he asked her, "Can I take God's place, who has not allowed you to conceive?"
In response, Leah asked her, "Wasn't it enough that you've taken away my husband? Now you also want to take my son's mandrakes!" But Rachel replied, "Okay, let's let Jacob sleep with you tonight in exchange for your son's mandrakes."
"What do I have to give you?" Laban asked.
"Okay," Laban replied. "We'll do it the way you've asked."
Then Rachel and Leah asked him, "Do we have anything left of inheritance remaining in our father's house?
Then Laban asked Jacob, "What did you do? You deceived me, carried off my daughters like you would war captives,
Then the man asked him, "What's your name?" "Jacob," he responded
"Please," Jacob inquired, "Tell me your name." But he asked, "Why are you asking about my name?" And he blessed Jacob there.
When Esau eventually looked around, he saw the women and the children. "Who are these people with you?" he asked.
Then Esau asked, "What are all these livestock for?" "To solicit favor from you, sir," Jacob answered.
"Why do that?" Jacob asked. "I've already found favor in your sight, sir." So Esau set out that very day back on his way to Seir,
"Should he have treated our sister like a whore?" they asked in response.

When Joseph reached Shechem, a man found him wandering around in a field. So the man asked him, "What are you looking for?"
So on the way, he turned aside, approached her, and said, "Come on! Let's have some sex!" But he didn't realize that he was talking to his own daughter-in-law. "What will you give me," she asked, "in order to have sex with me?"

As soon as Joseph saw his brothers, he knew who they were, but he remained disguised and asked them gruffly, "Where are you from?" "From the land of Canaan," they replied. "We're here to buy food."
He reported to his brothers, "My money has been returned! It's right here in my sack!" Trembling with mounting consternation, each of them asked one another, "What is God doing to us?"
"The man specifically asked about us and our relatives," they responded. "He asked us, "Is your father still alive?' and "Do you have another brother?' So we answered his questions. How could we have known that he would tell us to bring our brother back with us?"
Joseph asked them how they had been doing. "Is your father well, the older gentleman about whom you spoke?" he inquired. "Is he still alive?"
As Joseph looked up and recognized his brother Benjamin, his own mother's son, he asked, "Is this your youngest brother about whom you spoke to me?" And he addressed him directly, "May God be gracious to you, my son."
and Joseph asked them, "Why did you do this? Don't you know that I'm an expert at divination?"
Your Excellency asked his servants, "Do you have a father or brother?'
So Israel's sons did what they were asked to do, and Joseph provided wagons for them, as Pharaoh had commanded. He also gave them provisions for the journey.
Pharaoh asked his brothers, "What are your occupations?"
As the time approached for Israel to die, he called for his son Joseph and addressed him. "Please," he asked, "if you're happy with me, make a solemn promise that you'll treat me fairly and kindly by not burying me in Egypt.
Instead, when I've died, as my ancestors have, you are to carry me out of Egypt and bury me in their tomb." "I'll do what you've asked," Joseph replied.
Just then, Israel saw Joseph's sons and asked, "Who are these?"
"Please go," Pharaoh replied. "Bury your father, as he asked you to do."
Later, after Joseph's brothers faced the reality of their father's death, they asked themselves, "What happens if Joseph decides to hold a grudge against us? What if he pays us back in full for all the wrong things we did to him?"

"Then where is he?" He asked his daughters. "Why did you leave the man behind? Go invite him to have something to eat."
"What's that in your hand?" the LORD asked him. Moses answered, "A staff."
Then God asked him, "Who gives a person a mouth? Who makes him unable to speak, or deaf, or able to see, or blind, or lame? Is it not I, the LORD?
So Moses returned to the LORD and asked him, "LORD, why have you caused trouble for this people? Why have you sent me here?
The LORD did just as Moses asked, and the frogs died in the houses, in the courtyards, and in the fields.
The LORD did what Moses asked, and the swarms of insects departed from Pharaoh, his officials, and his people. Not one remained.
Meanwhile, the Israelis had done as Moses said; they had asked the Egyptians for objects of silver and objects of gold, and for clothes.
When the Israelis saw it, they asked one another, "What is it?", because they did not know what it was.
Then the LORD asked Moses, "How long will you people refuse to keep my commandments and my instructions?
Then Moses asked Aaron, "What did this people do to you that you brought such great sin upon them?"
Now Moses diligently sought for the goat that had been offered as a sin offering, but it had already been incinerated, so he was angry with Aaron's sons who remained. He asked Eleazar and Ithamar,
and asked, "Why can't we bring an offering to the LORD at the appointed time among the Israelis, even though we are unclean because we came in contact with a corpse?"
so he asked the LORD, "Why did you bring all this trouble to your servant? Why haven't I found favor in your eyes? After all, you're putting the burden of this entire people on me!
"Are you jealous on account of me?" Moses asked in reply. "I wish all of the LORD's people were prophets and that the LORD would put his spirit upon them!"
They asked, "Has the LORD spoken only through Moses? Hasn't he also spoken through us?" But the LORD heard it.
Suddenly, the glory of the LORD appeared at the Tent of Meeting to all of the Israelis. "How long will this people keep on spurning me and refusing to trust me, despite all the miracles that I've done among them?" the LORD asked Moses.
But Moses asked them, "Why do you continue to sin against what the LORD said? Don't you know that you can never succeed?
