12 ¶ And God said unto Abraham, Let
it not be grievous in thy sight because of
the lad, and because of thy bondwoman;
in all that Sarah hath said unto thee,
hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac Rom. 9. 7. 8.

13 And it came to pass, when God
caused me to wander from my father's
house, that I said unto her, This is thy
kindness which thou shalt shew unto me;
at every place whither we shall come, say
of me, He is my brother.

14 And Abimelech took sheep, and
oxen, and menservants, and womenserv-
ants, and gave them unto Abraham, and
restored him Sarah his wife.
15 And Abimelech said, Behold, my
land is before thee: dwell where it
pleaseth thee.

16 And unto Sarah he said, Behold, I
have given thy brother a thousand pieces
of silver: behold, he is to thee a cover-
ing of the eyes, unto all that are with thee,
and with all other: thus she was reproved.
17 ¶ So Abraham prayed unto God: and
God healed Abimelech, and his wife, and
his maidservants; and they bare children.
18 For the LORD had fast closed up all
the wombs of the house of Abimelech,
because of Sarah, Abraham's wife.
