“And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely the feare of God is not in this place: and they will slay mee for my wiues sake.”
King James Version (KJV)
8. Therefore Abimelech rose earely in the morning, and called all his seruants, and told all these things in their eares: and the men were sore afraid. 9. Then Abimelech called Abraham, and said vnto him, What hast thou done vnto vs? and what haue I offended thee, that thou hast brought on me, and on my kingdome a great sinne? thou hast done deeds vnto mee that ought not to be done. 10. And Abimelech said vnto Abraham, What sawest thou, that thou hast done this thing? 11. And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely the feare of God is not in this place: and they will slay mee for my wiues sake. 12. And yet indeed shee is my sister: she is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and shee became my wife. 13. And it came to passe when God caused me to wander from my fathers house, that I said vnto her, This is thy kindnesse which thou shalt shew vnto me; at euery place whither wee shall come, say of me, He is my brother. 14. And Abimelech tooke sheepe and oxen, and men-seruants, and women seruants, and gaue them vnto Abraham, and restored him Sarah his wife.
