Genesis 12:10-16New American Standard Bible (NASB)
10 Now there was a famine in the land; so Abram went down to Egypt to sojourn there, for the famine was severe in the land.11 It came about when he [a]came near to Egypt, that he said to Sarai his wife, “See now, I know that you are a [b]beautiful woman;12 and when the Egyptians see you, they will say, ‘This is his wife’; and they will kill me, but they will let you live.13 Please say that you are my sister so that it may go well with me because of you, and that [c]I may live on account of you.”14 It came about when Abram came into Egypt, the Egyptians [d]saw that the woman was very beautiful.15 Pharaoh’s officials saw her and praised her to Pharaoh; and the woman was taken into Pharaoh’s house.16 Therefore he treated Abram well for her sake; and [e]gave him sheep and oxen and donkeys and male and female servants and female donkeys and camels.
