9 And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the South.

10 And there was a Famine in the Land : and Abram went down into Egypt to sojourn there ; for the Famine was grievous in the Land.

11 And it came to pass, when he was come near to en. ter into Egypt, that he said unto Sarai his Wife, Behold, now I know that thou art a FAIR Woman to look upon.

12 Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians shall see thee, that they shall say, This is his Wife : and they will kill me, but they will save thee alive.

13 Say, I pray thee, thou art my Sister : that it may be well with me for thy Sake ; and my Soul shall live because of thee.

14 And it came to pass, that when Abram was come into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the Woman, that she was VERY FAIR.

15 The Princes also of Pharaoh saw her, and commended her before Pharaoh : and the Woman was taken into Pharaoh's House

15 For all the LAND which thou seest, to thee will I GIVE it, and to thy Seed for ever.

16 And I will make thy Seed as the Dust of the Earth : so that if a Man can NUMBER the Dust of the Earth, then Thall thy Seed also be NUMBRED.

17 Arise, walk through the Land in the Length of it, and in the Breadth of it: for I will give it unto thee.
