Abraham sojourneth at Gerar,

Genesis 20:1 Afterward Abraham departed thence toward the South countrey and dwelled betweene Cadesh and Shur, and soiourned in Gerar.

denieth his wife, and loseth her.

Genesis 20:2 And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, She is my sister. Then Abimelech King of Gerar sent and tooke Sarah.

Abimelech is reproved for her in a dream.

Genesis 20:3 But God came to Abimelech in a dreame by night, and said to him, Beholde, thou art but dead, because of the woman, which thou hast taken: for she is a mans wife. Genesis 20:4 (Notwithstanding Abimelech had not yet come neere her) And he said, Lord, wilt thou slay euen the righteous nation? Genesis 20:5 Said not he vnto me, She is my sister? yea, and she her selfe said, He is my brother: with an vpright minde, and innocent handes haue I done this. Genesis 20:6 And God saide vnto him by a dreame, I knowe that thou diddest this euen with an vpright minde, and I kept thee also that thou shouldest not sinne against me: therefore suffered I thee not to touche her. Genesis 20:7 Now then deliuer the man his wife againe: for he is a Prophet, and he shall pray for thee that thou mayest liue: but if thou deliuer her not againe, be sure that thou shalt die the death, thou, and all that thou hast. Genesis 20:8 Then Abimelech rising vp early in ye morning, called all his seruants, and tolde all these things vnto them, and the men were sore afraid.

He rebuketh Abraham,

Genesis 20:9 Afterward Abimelech called Abraham, and said vnto him, What hast thou done vnto vs? and what haue I offeded thee, that thou hast brought on me and on my kingdome this great sinne? thou hast done things vnto me that ought not to be done. Genesis 20:10 So Abimelech said vnto Abraham, What sawest thou that thou hast done this thing? Genesis 20:11 Then Abraha answered, Because I thought thus, Surely the feare of God is not in this place, and they will slay me for my wiues sake. Genesis 20:12 Yet in very deede she is my sister: for she is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother, and she is my wife. Genesis 20:13 Nowe when God caused me to wander out of my fathers house, I said then to her, This is thy kindnes that thou shalt shewe vnto me in all places where we come, Say thou of me, He is my brother.

restoreth Sarah,

Genesis 20:14 Then tooke Abimelech sheepe & beeues, & men seruants, & women seruants, & gaue them vnto Abraham, and restored him Sarah his wife. Genesis 20:15 And Abimelech saide, Beholde, my land is before thee: dwell where it pleaseth thee.

and reproveth her.

Genesis 20:16 Likewise to Sarah he said, Beholde, I haue giuen thy brother a thousand pieces of siluer: behold, he is the vaile of thine eyes to all that are with thee, and to all others: and she was thus reproued.

He is healed by Abraham's prayer.

Genesis 20:17 Then Abraham prayed vnto God, and God healed Abimelech, and his wife, and his women seruants: and they bare children. Genesis 20:18 For the Lorde had shut vp euery wombe of the house of Abimelech, because of Sarah Abrahams wife.
