Bible: Genesis 12:10-13

The Promised Blessing Jeopardized

12:10 There was a famine in the land, so Abram went down to Egypt 1  to stay for a while 2  because the famine was severe. 3  12:11 As he approached 4  Egypt, he said to his wife Sarai, “Look, 5  I know that you are a beautiful woman. 6  12:12 When the Egyptians see you they will say, ‘This is his wife.’ Then they will kill me but will keep you alive. 7  12:13 So tell them 8  you are my sister 9  so that it may go well 10  for me because of you and my life will be spared 11  on account of you.”
