Genesis 12:17
Context
Abram and Sarai in Egypt

10And there was a famine in the land: and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there; for the famine was grievous in the land. 11And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that he said to Sarai his wife, Behold now, I know that you are a fair woman to look on: 12Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see you, that they shall say, This is his wife: and they will kill me, but they will save you alive. 13Say, I pray you, you are my sister: that it may be well with me for your sake; and my soul shall live because of you. 14And it came to pass, that, when Abram was come into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair. 15The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house. 16And he entreated Abram well for her sake: and he had sheep, and oxen, and he asses, and menservants, and maidservants, and she asses, and camels. 17And the LORD plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai Abram's wife. 18And Pharaoh called Abram and said, What is this that you have done to me? why did you not tell me that she was your wife? 19Why said you, She is my sister? so I might have taken her to me to wife: now therefore behold your wife, take her, and go your way. 20And Pharaoh commanded his men concerning him: and they sent him away, and his wife, and all that he had.
