“Because that Abraham obeyed my voyce, and kept my charge, my Commandements, my Statutes and my Lawes.”
King James Version (KJV)
2. And the LORD appeared vnto him and said, Goe not downe into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of. 3. Soiourne in this land, and I wil be with thee, and will blesse thee: for vnto thee, and vnto thy seed I will giue all these countreys, and I wil performe the othe, which I sware vnto Abraham thy father. 4. And I wil make thy seed to multiply as the starres of heauen, and will giue vnto thy seed all these countreys: and in thy Seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed: 5. Because that Abraham obeyed my voyce, and kept my charge, my Commandements, my Statutes and my Lawes. 6. ¶ And Isaac dwelt in Gerar. 7. And the men of the place asked him of his wife: and he said, She is my sister: for he feared to say, She is my wife; lest, said he, the men of the place should kill me for Rebekah, because shee was faire to looke vpon. 8. And it came to passe when he had bene there a long time, that Abimelech king of the Philistims looked out at a window, and saw, and behold, Isaac was sporting with Rebekah his wife.
