12:12And it will be, when the Egyptians see you, then they will say, This is his wife, and they will kill me, and they will save you alive.
12:13Please say that you are my sister, so that it may be well with me for your sake, and my soul shall live because of you.

12:17And Jehovah touched Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai, Abram's wife.
12:18And Pharaoh called for Abram and said, What is this you have done to me? Why did you not tell me she is your wife?
12:19Why did you say, She is my sister? And so I took her for my wife. Now, then, see your wife. Take her and go.
12:20And as Pharaoh commanded his men as to him, even they sent away him and his wife and all that he had.
