10 There was a famine in the land. Abram went down into Egypt to live as a foreigner there, for the famine was sore in the land.
11 It happened, when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that he said to Sarai his wife, 'See now, I know that you are a beautiful woman to look on.
12 It will happen, when the Egyptians will see you, that they will say, 'This is his wife.' They will kill me, but they will save you alive.
13 Please say that you are my sister, that it may be well with me for your sake, and that my soul may live because of you.'
14 It happened that when Abram had come into Egypt, the Egyptians saw that the woman was very beautiful.
