Genesis 20:1 And Abraham journeyed from thence toward the south country and dwelled between Kadesh and Shur and sojourned in Gerar.

Genesis 20:2 And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, She is my sister. And Abimelech king of Gerar.(an ancient town or place of the Philistines in the times of Abraham and Isaac).sent and took Sarah.

Genesis 20:3 But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night and said to him, Behold, you are but a dead man for the woman which you have taken, she is a man's wife.

Genesis 20:4,5 But Abimelech had not come near her. And he said, Lord, wilt you slay also a righteous nation? Didn't he say to me, She is my sister? and she, even she herself said, He is my brother. In the integrity of my heart and innocency of my hands have I done this.(approached her, interested in her).

Genesis 20:6 And God said unto him in a dream, Yea, I know that you did this in the integrity of your heart, for I also withheld you from sinning against me, therefore I worked it out for you not to touch her.(kept him from touching her; doesn't say how; maybe king Abimelech was occupied with concerns brought to him; God has probably kept each of us from trouble in some ways, yet allowed others so we learn:.Proverbs 1:10-14; 12:13).

Genesis 20:7 Now therefore restore the man his wife, for he is a prophet and he shall pray for you and you shalt live. And if you restore her not, know you that you shall surely die, you and all that are yours.

Genesis 20:8 Therefore Abimelech rose early in the morning and called all his servants and told all these things in their ears. And the men were sore afraid. Then Abimelech called Abraham and said unto him, What have you done unto us? and what have I offended you, that you have brought on me and on my kingdom a great sin? You have done deeds unto me that ought not to be done. And Abimelech said unto Abraham, What saw you that you have done this thing?

Genesis 20:9,10 Then Abimelech called Abraham and said unto him, What hast thou done unto us? and what have I offended thee, that thou hast brought on me and on my kingdom a great sin? thou hast done deeds unto me that ought not to be done. And Abimelech said unto Abraham, What sawest thou, that thou hast done this thing?

Genesis 20:11 And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely the fear of God is not in this place and they will slay me for my wife's sake.

Genesis 20:12 And yet indeed she is my sister; she is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother and she became my wife. And it came to pass, when God caused me to wander from my father's house, that I said unto her, This is your kindness which you shall show unto me; at every place whither we shall come, say of me, He is my brother.

Barnes Notes:."Abraham's mode of avoiding danger appeared warrantable according to his own and the common code of morals."

Genesis 20:13-16 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. And Abimelech took sheep and oxen and menservants and womenservants and gave them unto Abraham and restored him Sarah his wife. And Abimelech said, Behold, my land is before thee. Dwell where it pleaseth thee. And unto Sarah he said, Behold, I have given thy brother a thousand pieces of silver. Behold, he is to thee a covering of the eyes, unto all that are with thee and with all other.(her family was concerned in this public vindication of her character); thus she was reproved.

"covering of the eyes" or, because of him I won't hold this against you;.Barnes Notes:."a figurative.phrase for a recompense or pacificatory offering, in consideration of which an offence is overlooked."

Genesis 20:17,18 So Abraham prayed unto God and God healed Abimelech and his wife and his maidservants and they bare children. For the LORD had fast closed up all the wombs of the house of Abimelech, because of Sarah Abraham's wife.(verses 1-6).

Genesis 21:1 And the LORD visited Sarah as he had said.(Genesis 17:16-22),

Genesis 21:2 And the LORD did unto Sarah as he had spoken.(Genesis 17:16,17). For Sarah conceived and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. 

Genesis 21:3 And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him, whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac.

Genesis 21:4-8 And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac being eight days old, as God had commanded him. And Abraham was an hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him. And Sarah said, God has made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me. And she said, Who would have said unto Abraham, that Sarah should have given children suck? for I have born him a son in his old age. And the child grew and was weaned and Abraham made a great feast the same day that Isaac was weaned.

Genesis 21:9,10 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto Abraham, mocking.(Hagar's son was probably about 3-5 years old at this time). Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman.(a slave, a mistress).and her son, for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac.

Genesis 21:11 And the thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight because of his son.

Genesis 21:12 And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in your sight because of the lad and because of your bondwoman. In all that Sarah has said unto you, hearken unto her voice, for in Isaac shall your seed be called.

Genesis 21:13 And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation, because he is your seed.

Genesis 21:14-16 And Abraham rose up early in the morning and took bread and a bottle of water and gave it unto Hagar, putting it on her shoulder and the child and sent her away. And she departed and wandered in the wilderness of Beersheba.(identified today with 'Bir es Seba', 31° 15' N, 34° 48' E. where there are still two principal wells in the district giving excellent water, besides five smaller ones). And the water was spent.(used up).in the bottle and she put the child under one of the shrubs. And she went and sat her down over against him a good way off, as it were a bowshot, for she said, Let me not see the death of the child. And she sat over against him and lift up her voice and wept.

Genesis 21:17-19 And God heard the voice of the lad and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven and said unto her, What is ailing you Hagar, don't fear about it. For God has heard the voice of the lad where he is. Arise, lift up the lad and hold him in your hand, for I will make him a great nation. And God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water and she went and filled the bottle with water and gave the lad drink.

Genesis 21:20 And God was with the lad and he grew and dwelt in the wilderness and became an archer.

Genesis 21:21 And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran. And his mother took him a wife out of the land of Egypt.

Genesis 21:22-27 And it came to pass at that time, that Abimelech and Phichol the chief captain of his host spake unto Abraham, saying, God is with you in all that you do. Now therefore swear unto me here by God that you will not deal falsely with me, nor with my son, nor with my son's son, but according to the kindness that I have done unto you, you shall do unto me and to the land wherein thou hast sojourned. And Abraham said, I will swear. And Abraham reproved Abimelech because of a well of water, which Abimelech's servants had violently taken away. And Abimelech said, I don't know who has done this thing, neither did you tell me, neither yet heard I of it, until today. And Abraham took sheep and oxen and gave them unto Abimelech and both of them made a covenant.(a covenant is an agreement).

Genesis 21:34 And Abraham sojourned in the Philistines' land many days.

Genesis 22:1-11 And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt.(try, test).Abraham and said unto him, Abraham and he said, Behold, here I am. And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest and get thee into the land of Moriah and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of. And Abraham rose up early in the morning and saddled his ass and took two of his young men with him and Isaac his son and clave the wood for the burnt offering and rose up and went unto the place of which God had told him. Then on the third day Abraham lifted up his eyes and saw the place afar off. And Abraham said unto his young men, Abide you here with the ass and I and the lad will go yonder and worship and come again to you. And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering and laid it upon Isaac his son and he took the fire in his hand and a knife and they went both of them together. And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father and said, My father and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering? And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering. So they went both of them together. And they came to the place which God had told him of And Abraham built an altar there and laid the wood in order and bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar upon the wood. And Abraham stretched forth his hand and took the knife to slay his son. And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven and said, Abraham, Abraham and he said, Here am I.

Genesis 22:12 And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him. For now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.

Genesis 22:13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns. And Abraham went and took the ram and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.

Genesis 22:14 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh as it is said to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.

Genesis 22:15,16 And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time, And said, By myself have I sworn, says the LORD, for because you have done this thing and have not withheld your son, your only son;

Genesis 22:17 That in blessing I will bless you.(Abraham, verse above; also see.Genesis 12:2,3).and in multiplying I will multiply your seed as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is upon the sea shore and your seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

Genesis 22:18 And in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because you have obeyed.(original for 'obeyed', 'heard and received'; Abraham listened; some people don't).my voice.

Genesis 22:21 Huz his firstborn and Buz his brother and Kemuel the father of Aram.

Genesis 23:1,2 And Sarah was an hundred and seven and twenty years old: these were the years of the life of Sarah. And Sarah died in Kirjatharba; the same is Hebron in the land of Canaan and Abraham came to mourn for Sarah and to weep for her. 

Genesis 23:3-20 And Abraham stood up from before his dead and spake unto the sons of Heth, saying, I am a stranger and a sojourner with you. Give me a possession of a buryingplace with you, that I may bury my dead out of my sight. And the children of Heth answered Abraham, saying unto him, Hear us, my lord. Thou art a mighty prince among us. In the choice of our sepulchres bury thy dead; none of us shall withhold from thee his sepulchre, but that thou mayest bury thy dead. And Abraham stood up and bowed himself to the people of the land, even to the children of Heth. And he communed with them, saying, If it be your mind that I should bury my dead out of my sight, hear me and intreat for me to Ephron the son of Zohar, That he may give me the cave of Machpelah, which he hath, which is in the end of his field, for as much money as it is worth he shall give it me for a possession of a buryingplace amongst you. And Ephron dwelt among the children of Heth and Ephron the Hittite answered Abraham in the audience of the children of Heth, even of all that went in at the gate of his city, saying, Nay, my lord, hear me. The field give I thee and the cave that is therein, I give it thee. In the presence of the sons of my people give I it thee. Bury thy dead. And Abraham bowed down himself before the people of the land. And he spake unto Ephron in the audience of the people of the land, saying, But if thou wilt give it, I pray thee, hear me. I will give thee money for the field. Take it of me and I will bury my dead there. And Ephron answered Abraham, saying unto him, My lord, hearken unto me. The land is worth four hundred shekels of silver. What is that betwixt me and thee? bury therefore thy dead. And Abraham hearkened unto Ephron and Abraham weighed to Ephron the silver, which he had named in the audience of the sons of Heth, four hundred shekels of silver, current money with the merchant. And the field of Ephron, which was in Machpelah, which was before Mamre, the field and the cave which was therein and all the trees that were in the field, that were in all the borders round about, were made sure unto Abraham for a possession in the presence of the children of Heth, before all that went in at the gate of his city. And after this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah before Mamre. The same is Hebron in the land of Canaan. And the field and the cave that is therein, were made sure unto Abraham for a possession of a burying place by the sons of Heth.

Genesis 24:1,2 And Abraham was old and well stricken in age and the LORD had blessed Abraham in all things. And Abraham said unto his eldest servant of his house, that ruled over all that he had, Put, I pray thee, your hand under my thigh 

Genesis 24:3 And I will make thee swear by the LORD, the God of heaven and the God of the earth, that thou shalt not take a wife unto my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell.

Abraham dwelt amongst the Canaanites in the land of Canaan and was safe and prospered; a lesson for us today is that Creator can keep you safe and prosperous within any system:.Psalms 110:1.

Genesis 24:4 But you shall go unto my country and to my kindred and take a wife unto my son Isaac.

Genesis 24:5 And the servant said unto him, Peradventure the woman will not be willing to follow me unto this land, must I needs bring thy son again unto the land from whence you came?

Genesis 24:6 And Abraham said unto him, Beware you that you bring not my son thither again.

Genesis 24:7 The LORD God of heaven, which took me from my father's house and from the land of my kindred and which spake unto me and that sware unto me, saying, Unto thy seed will I give this land; he shall send his angel before thee and thou shalt take a wife unto my son from thence. 

Genesis 24:8 And if the woman will not be willing to follow thee, then thou shalt be clear from this my oath, only bring not my son thither again.

Genesis 24:10-13 And the servant took ten camels of the camels of his master and departed, for all the goods of his master were in his hand and he arose and went to Mesopotamia, unto the city of Nahor. And he made his camels to kneel down without the city by a well of water at the time of the evening, even the time that women go out to draw water. And he said, O LORD God of my master Abraham, I pray thee, send me good speed this day and shew kindness unto my master Abraham. Behold, I stand here by the well of water and the daughters of the men of the city come out to draw water.

Genesis 24:14 And let it come to pass, that the damsel to whom I shall say, Let down thy pitcher, I pray thee, that I may drink and she shall say, Drink and I will give thy camels drink also. Let the same be she that thou hast appointed for thy servant Isaac and thereby shall I know that thou hast shewed kindness unto my master.

Genesis 24:15-20 And it came to pass, before he had done speaking, that, behold, Rebekah came out, who was born to Bethuel, son of Milcah, the wife of Nahor, Abraham's brother, with her pitcher upon her shoulder. And the damsel was very fair to look upon, a virgin, neither had any man known her and she went down to the well and filled her pitcher and came up. And the servant ran to meet her and said, Let me, I pray thee, drink a little water of thy pitcher. And she said, Drink, my lord and she hasted and let down her pitcher upon her hand and gave him drink. And when she had done giving him drink, she said, I will draw water for thy camels also, until they have done drinking. And she hasted and emptied her pitcher into the trough and ran again unto the well to draw water and drew for all his camels.

Genesis 24:55 And her brother and her mother said, Let the damsel abide with us a few.(word 'few' inserted by translators).days, at the least ten; after that she shall go.

Genesis 24:63 And Isaac went out to meditate in the field at the eventide. And he lifted up his eyes and saw and behold the camels were coming.

Genesis 24:67 And Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah's tent, and took Rebekah and she.(Genesis 25:20).became his wife.(original 'woman').and he loved her and Isaac was comforted after his mother's.(mother was Sarah; dad was Abraham).death.

Genesis 25:1-4 Then again Abraham took a wife and her name was Keturah. And she bare him Zimran and Jokshan and Medan and Midian and Ishbak and Shuah. And Jokshan begat Sheba and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim and Letushim and Leummim. And the sons of Midian were Ephah and Epher and Hanoch and Abida and Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah.

Genesis 25:5 And Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac.

Genesis 25:6 But unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts and sent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto the east country.

Genesis 25:7 And these are the days of the years of Abraham's life which he lived, an hundred threescore and fifteen years.(what's a score?).

Genesis 25:8 Then Abraham gave up the ghost and died in a good old age, an old man and full of years and was gathered to his people.

Genesis 25:9 And his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is before Mamre.

Genesis 25:10-12 The field which Abraham purchased of the sons of Heth; there was Abraham buried and Sarah his wife. And it came to pass after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his son Isaac and Isaac dwelt by the well Lahairoi. Now these are the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's handmaid, bare unto Abraham. 

Genesis 25:13-15 And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebajoth and Kedar and Adbeel and Mibsam and Mishma and Dumah and Massa, Hadar and Tema, Jetur, Naphish and Kedemah..(descendants of Abraham's son Ishmael who grew into tribes)

Genesis 25:16 These are the sons of Ishmael and these are their names, by their towns and by their castles; twelve princes according to their nations. 

Genesis 25:17,18 And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, an hundred and thirty and seven years and he gave up the ghost and died and was gathered unto his people. And they dwelt from Havilah unto Shur, that is before Egypt, as thou goe toward Assyria and he died in the presence of all his brethren.

Genesis 25:19 And these are the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son. Abraham begat Isaac

Genesis 25:20 And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife.(Genesis 24:67), the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padanaram, the sister to Laban the Syrian.

Genesis 25:21 And Isaac intreated the LORD for his wife, because she was barren and the LORD was intreated of him and Rebekah his wife conceived.

Genesis 25:22,23 And the children struggled together within her and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to enquire of the LORD. And the LORD said unto her, Two nations are in your womb and two manner of people shall be separated from your bowels and the one people shall be stronger than the other people and the elder shall serve the younger.

Genesis 25:24 And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb. 

Genesis 25:25,26 And the first came out red all over like an hairy garment and they called his name Esau. And after that came his brother out and his hand took hold on Esau's heel and his name was called Jacob and Isaac.(the dad).was threescore years old when she.(Rebekah).bare them.

Genesis 25:27-34 And the boys grew. Esau was a cunning hunter, a man of the field. Jacob was a plain man, dwelling in tents. And Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of his venison but Rebekah loved Jacob. And Jacob sod.(boiled).pottage.(boiled food such as would be oats and barley in a porridge or red lentils in some sort of a stew).and Esau came from the field and he was faint. And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage, for I am faint. Therefore was his name called Edom.(red). And Jacob said Sell me this day thy birthright. And Esau said Behold, I am at the point to die and what profit shall this birthright do to me? And Jacob said Swear to me this day and he sware unto him and he sold his birthright unto Jacob. Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles and he did eat and drink and rose up and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.(don't despise the things that are good that you may have; what are they? count your blessings).

Genesis 26:1,2 And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar. And the LORD appeared unto him and said, Go not down into Egypt. Dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of.

Genesis 26:3.Sojourn in this land and I will be with thee and will bless thee.(Genesis 17:7), for unto thee and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;

Genesis 26:4 And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven and will give unto thy seed all these countries and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;

Genesis 26:7 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 she was fair to look upon. 

Genesis 26:8-17 And it came to pass, when he had been there a long time, that Abimelech king of the Philistines looked out at a window and saw and behold, Isaac was sporting with Rebekah his wife. And Abimelech called Isaac and said, Behold, of a surety she is thy wife and how saidst thou, She is my sister? And Isaac said unto him, Because I said, Lest I die for her. And Abimelech said, What is this thou hast done unto us? One of the people might lightly have lien with thy wife and thou shouldest have brought guiltiness upon us. And Abimelech charged all his people, saying, He that toucheth this man or his wife shall surely be put to death. Then Isaac sowed in that land and received in the same year an hundredfold. And the LORD blessed him. And the man waxed great and went forward and grew until he became very great, for he had possession of flocks and possession of herds and great store of servants. And the Philistines envied him. For all the wells which his father's servants had digged in the days of Abraham his father, the Philistines had stopped them and filled them with earth. And Abimelech said unto Isaac, Go from us, for thou art much mightier than we. And Isaac departed thence and pitched his tent in the valley of Gerar and dwelt there.

Genesis 26:25 And he builded an altar there and called upon the name of the LORD and pitched his tent there. And there Isaac's servants digged a well.

Genesis 26:34,35 And Esau was forty years old when he took to wife Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite and Bashemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite, which were a grief of mind unto Isaac and to Rebekah.
