12:4 So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken to him, and Lot
 went with him: and Abram [was] seventy and five years old when
 he departed from Haran.
12:5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son,

12:7 And the LORD appeared to Abram, and said, To thy seed will

 the Egyptians beheld the woman that she [was] very fair.
12:15 The princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her
 before Pharaoh: and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's house.
12:16 And he treated Abram well for her sake: and he had sheep,
 and oxen, and he-asses, and men-servants, and maid-servants,
 and she-asses, and camels.
12:17 And the LORD afflicted Pharaoh and his house with great
 plagues, because of Sarai, Abram's wife.
12:18 And Pharaoh called Abram, and said, What [is] this [that]

 thy wife?
12:19 Why saidst thou, She [is] my sister? so I might have taken
 her to me for a wife: now therefore behold thy wife, take
 [her], and go thy way.
12:20 And Pharaoh commanded [his] men concerning him: and they
 sent him away, and his wife, and all that he had.
