1: And Jehovah saith unto Abram, 'Go for thyself, from thy land, and from thy kindred, and from the house of thy father, unto the land which I shew thee. 2: And I make thee become a great nation, and bless thee, and make thy name great; and be thou a blessing. 3: And I bless those blessing thee, and him who is disesteeming thee I curse, and blessed in thee have been all families of the ground.' 4: And Abram goeth on, as Jehovah hath spoken unto him, and Lot goeth with him, and Abram [is] a son of five and seventy years in his going out from Charan. 5: And Abram taketh Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they have gained, and the persons that they have obtained in Charan; and they go out to go towards the land of Canaan; and they come in to the land of Canaan. 6: And Abram passeth over into the land, unto the place Shechem, unto the oak of Moreh; and the Canaanite [is] then in the land. 7: And Jehovah appeareth unto Abram, and saith, 'To thy seed I give this land;' and he buildeth there an altar to Jehovah, who hath appeared unto him. 8: And he removeth from thence towards a mountain at the east of Beth-El, and stretcheth out the tent (Beth-El at the west, and Hai at the east), and he buildeth there an altar to Jehovah, and preacheth in the name of Jehovah. 9: And Abram journeyeth, going on and journeying towards the south. 10: And there is a famine in the land, and Abram goeth down towards Egypt to sojourn there, for the famine [is] grievous in the land; 11: and it cometh to pass as he hath drawn near to enter Egypt, that he saith unto Sarai his wife, 'Lo, I pray thee, I have known that thou [art] a woman of beautiful appearance; 12: and it hath come to pass that the Egyptians see thee, and they have said, 'This [is] his wife,' and they have slain me, and thee they keep alive: 13: say, I pray thee, thou [art] my sister, so that it is well with me because of thee, and my soul hath lived for thy sake.' 14: And it cometh to pass, at the entering of Abram into Egypt, that the Egyptians see the woman that she [is] exceeding fair; 15: and princes of Pharaoh see her, and praise her unto Pharaoh, and the woman is taken [to] Pharaoh's house; 16: and to Abram he hath done good because of her, and he hath sheep and oxen, and he-asses, and men-servants, and handmaids, and she-asses, and camels. 17: And Jehovah plagueth Pharaoh and his house -- great plagues -- for the matter of Sarai, Abram's wife. 18: And Pharaoh calleth for Abram, and saith, 'What [is] this thou hast done to me? why hast thou not declared to me that she [is] thy wife? 19: Why hast thou said, She [is] my sister, and I take her to myself for a wife? and now, lo, thy wife, take and go.' 20: And Pharaoh chargeth men concerning him, and they send him away, and his wife, an all that he hath.
