Genesis 20:1-18, NLT
Abraham Deceives Abimelech
1Abraham moved south to the Negev and lived for a while between Kadesh and Shur, and then he moved on to Gerar. While living there as a foreigner,
3But that night God came to Abimelech in a dream and told him, “You are a dead man, for that woman you have taken is already married!”
4But Abimelech had not slept with her yet, so he said, “Lord, will you destroy an innocent nation?
6In the dream God responded, “Yes, I know you are innocent. That’s why I kept you from sinning against me, and why I did not let you touch her.
8Abimelech got up early the next morning and quickly called all his servants together. When he told them what had happened, his men were terrified.
11Abraham replied, “I thought, ‘This is a godless place. They will want my wife and will kill me to get her.’
14Then Abimelech took some of his sheep and goats, cattle, and male and female servants, and he presented them to Abraham. He also returned his wife, Sarah, to him.
17Then Abraham prayed to God, and God healed Abimelech, his wife, and his female servants, so they could have children.
