“And Abimelech called Isaac and said, Behold, of a suretie she is thy wife: and how saidst thou, She is my sister? And Isaac said vnto him, Because I said, Lest I die for her.”

King James Version (KJV)

Genesis 26:9

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. 9. And Abimelech called Isaac and said, Behold, of a suretie she is thy wife: and how saidst thou, She is my sister? And Isaac said vnto him, Because I said, Lest I die for her. 10. And Abimelech said, What is this thou hast done vnto vs? one of the people might lightly haue lien with thy wife, and thou shouldest haue brought guiltinesse vpon vs. 11. And Abimelech charged all his people, saying, Hee that toucheth this man or his wife, shall surely bee put to death. 12. Then Isaac sowed in that land, and receiued in the same yeere an hundred fold: & the LORD blessed him.
