Abram Journeys to Egypt

1 Now Yahweh had said to Abram, “Get out of your country, and from your kindred, and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you.

12:1 καὶ εἶπεν κύριος τῷ Ἅβραμ, ἔξελθε ἐκ τῆς γῆς σου καὶ ἐκ τῆς συγγενείας σου καὶ ἐκ τοῦ οἴκου τοῦ πατρός σου εἰς τὴν γῆν, ἣν ἄν σοί δείξω· 12:1 Καὶ εἶπε Κύριος τῷ Ἅβραμ· ἔξελθε ἐκ τῆς γῆς σου καὶ ἐκ τῆς συγγενείας σου καὶ ἐκ τοῦ οἴκου τοῦ πατρός σου καὶ δεῦρο εἰς τὴν γῆν, ἣν ἄν σοι δείξω·
12:1 And the Lord said to Habram, “Go out of your land and out of your relatives, and out of your father’s home, and into the land which I will show you. 12:1 And the Lord said to Habram, “Go out of your land and out of your relatives, and out of your father’s home, and come into the land which I will show you.

2 And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing.

12:2 καὶ ποιήσω σὲ εἰς ἔθνος μέγα καὶ εὐλογήσω σὲ καὶ μεγαλυνῶ τὸ ὄνομά σου, καὶ ἔσῃ εὐλογητός 12:2 καὶ ποιήσω σε εἰς ἔθνος μέγα καὶ εὐλογήσω σε καὶ μεγαλυνῶ τὸ ὄνομά σου, καὶ ἔσῃ εὐλογημένος·
12:2 And I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you and magnify your name, and you will be blessed. 12:2 And I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you and magnify your name, and you will become blessed.

3 And I will bless those who bless you, and curse him that curses you; and in you shall all families of the earth be blessed.”

12:3 καὶ εὐλογήσω τοὺς εὐλογοῦντάς σε, καὶ τοὺς καταρωμένους σὲ καταράσομαι· καὶ ἐνευλογηθήσονται ἐν σοί πᾶσαι αἱ φυλαὶ τῆς γῆς. 12:3 καὶ εὐλογήσω τοὺς εὐλογοῦντάς σε καὶ τοὺς καταρωμένους σε καταράσομαι· καὶ ἐνευλογηθήσονται ἐν σοί πᾶσαι αἱ φυλαὶ τῆς γῆς.
12:3 And I will bless those who bless you, and curse those who curse you, and all the tribes of the land will be blessed by you.” 12:3 And I will bless those who bless you, and curse those who curse you, and all the tribes of the land will be blessed by you.”

4 So Abram departed, as Yahweh had spoken to him; and Lot went with him; and Abram was 75 years old when he departed out of Haran.

12:4 καὶ ἐπορεύθη Ἅβραμ, καθάπερ ἐλάλησεν αὐτῷ κύριος, καὶ ᾤχετο μετ’ αὐτοῦ Λώτ· Ἅβραμ δὲ ἦν ἐτῶν ἑβδομήκοντα πέντε, ὅτε ἐξῆλθεν ἐκ Χαρράν. 12:4 καὶ ἐπορεύθη Ἅβραμ, καθάπερ ἐλάλησεν αὐτῷ Κύριος, καὶ ᾤχετο μετ’ αὐτοῦ Λώτ.
Ἅβραμ δὲ ἦν ἐτῶν ἑβδομηκονταπέντε, ὅτε ἐξῆλθε ἐκ Χαρράν.
12:4 And Habram departed as the Lord spoke to him, and Lōt went with him, and Habram was 75 years old, when he went out of Charran. 12:4 And Habram departed as the Lord spoke to him, and Lōt went with him, and Habram was 75 years old, when he went out of Charran.

5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother’s son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had acquired in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.

12:5 καὶ ἔλαβεν Ἅβραμ τὴν Σάραν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ καὶ τὸν Λὼτ υἱὸν τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντα τὰ ὑπάρχοντα αὐτῶν, ὅσα ἐκτήσαντο, καὶ πᾶσαν ψυχήν, ἣν ἐκτήσαντο ἐν Χαρράν, καὶ ἐξήλθοσαν πορευθῆναι εἰς γῆν Χαναὰν καὶ ἦλθον εἰς γῆν Χαναάν. 12:5 καὶ ἔλαβεν Ἅβραμ Σάραν τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ καὶ τὸν Λὼτ υἱὸν τοῦ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντα τὰ ὑπάρχοντα αὐτῶν, ὅσα ἐκτήσαντο, καὶ πᾶσαν ψυχήν, ἣν ἐκτήσαντο ἐκ Χαρράν, καὶ ἐξήλθοσαν πορευθῆναι εἰς γῆν Χαναάν.

6 And Abram passed through the land to the place of Sichem, to the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.

12:6 καὶ διώδευσεν Ἅβραμ τὴν γῆν εἰς τὸ μῆκος αὐτῆς ἕως τοῦ τόπου Συχὲμ ἐπὶ τὴν δρῦν τὴν ὑψηλήν· οἱ δὲ Χαναναῖοι τότε κατῴκουν τὴν γῆν. 12:6 καὶ διώδευσεν Ἅβραμ τὴν γῆν εἰς τὸ μῆκος αὐτῆς ἕως τοῦ τόπου Συχέμ, ἐπὶ τὴν δρῦν τὴν ὑψηλήν· οἱ δὲ Χαναναῖοι τότε κατῴκουν τὴν γῆν.
12:6 And Habram travelled through the land into its length as far as the place Sychem, to the high oak, and the Chananites then inhabited the land. 12:6 And Habram travelled through the land into its length as far as the place Sychem, to the high oak, and the Chananites then inhabited the land.

7 And Yahweh appeared to Abram, and said, “Unto your seed will I give this land”; and there built he an altar to Yahweh, who appeared to him.

12:7 καὶ ὤφθη κύριος τῷ Ἅβραμ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ, τῷ σπέρματί σου δώσω τὴν γῆν ταύτην.
καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν ἐκεῖ Ἅβραμ θυσιαστήριον κυρίῳ τῷ ὀφθέντι αὐτῷ.
12:7 καὶ ὤφθη Κύριος τῷ Ἅβραμ καὶ εἶπε αὐτῷ· τῷ σπέρματί σου δώσω τὴν γῆν ταύτην.

And Habram built an altar there to the Lord who appeared to him.”

8 And he removed from there to a mountain on the east of Bethel, and set up his tent, having Bethel on the west, and Ai on the east; and there he built an altar to Yahweh, and called on the name of Yahweh.

12:8 καὶ ἀπέστη ἐκεῖθεν εἰς τὸ ὄρος κατ’ ἀνατολὰς Βαιθὴλ καὶ ἔστησεν ἐκεῖ τὴν σκηνὴν αὐτοῦ, Βαιθὴλ κατὰ θάλασσαν καὶ Ἀγγαὶ κατ’ ἀνατολάς· καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν ἐκεῖ θυσιαστήριον τῷ κυρίῳ καὶ ἐπεκαλέσατο ἐπὶ τῷ ὀνόματι κυρίου. 12:8 καὶ ἀπέστη ἐκεῖθεν εἰς τὸ ὄρος κατὰ ἀνατολὰς Βαιθὴλ καὶ ἔστησεν ἐκεῖ τὴν σκηνὴν αὐτοῦ, Βαιθὴλ κατὰ θάλασσαν καὶ Ἀγγαὶ κατὰ ἀνατολάς· καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν ἐκεῖ θυσιαστήριον τῷ Κυρίῳ καὶ ἐπεκαλέσατο ἐπὶ τῷ ὀνόματι Κυρίου.

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

12:9 καὶ ἀπῆρεν Ἅβραμ καὶ πορευθεὶς ἐστρατοπέδευσεν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ. 12:9 καὶ ἀπῇρεν Ἅβραμ καὶ πορευθεὶς ἐστρατοπέδευσεν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ.

10 And there was a famine in the land; and Abram went down into Egypt to stay there; for the famine was grievous in the land.

12:10 καὶ ἐγένετο λιμὸς ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, καὶ κατέβη Ἅβραμ εἰς Αἴγυπτον παροικῆσαι ἐκεῖ, ὅτι ἐνίσχυσεν λιμὸς ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς. 12:10 Καὶ ἐγένετο λιμὸς ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, καὶ κατέβη Ἅβραμ εἰς Αἴγυπτον παροικῆσαι ἐκεῖ, ὅτι ἐνίσχυσεν λιμὸς ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς.

11 And it happened, when he came near to enter into Egypt, that he said to Sarai his wife, “Behold now, I know that you are a fair woman to look upon.

12:11 ἐγένετο δὲ ἡνίκα ἤγγισεν Ἅβραμ εἰσελθεῖν εἰς Αἴγυπτον, εἶπεν Ἅβραμ Σάρα τῇ γυναικὶ αὐτοῦ, γινώσκω ἐγὼ ὅτι γυνὴ εὐπρόσωπος εἶ· 12:11 ἐγένετο δέ, ἡνίκα ἤγγισεν Ἅβραμ εἰσελθεῖν εἰς Αἴγυπτον, εἶπε Ἅβραμ Σάρᾳ τῇ γυναικί· γινώσκω ἐγώ, ὅτι γυνὴ εὐπρόσωπος εἶ·

12 Therefore it will happen, when the Egyptians shall see you, that they shall say, ‘This is his wife; and they will kill me, but they will save you alive.’

12:12 ἔσται οὖν ὡς ἄν ἴδωσίν σὲ οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι, ἐροῦσιν ὅτι γυνὴ αὐτοῦ αὕτη, καὶ ἀποκτενοῦσίν με, σὲ δὲ περιποιήσονται. 12:12 ἔσται οὖν, ὡς ἄν ἴδωσί σε οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι, ἐροῦσιν ὅτι γυνὴ αὐτοῦ ἐστιν αὐτή, καὶ ἀποκτενοῦσί με, σὲ δὲ περιποιήσονται.

13 Say, please, you are my sister: that it may be well with me for your sake; and my soul shall live because of you.”

12:13 εἰπὸν οὖν ὅτι, ἀδελφὴ αὐτοῦ εἰμι, ὅπως ἄν εὖ μοι γένηται διὰ σέ, καὶ ζήσεται ψυχή μου ἕνεκεν σου. 12:13 εἰπὸν οὖν, ὅτι ἀδελφὴ αὐτοῦ εἰμι, ὅπως ἄν εὖ μοι γένηται διὰ σέ, καὶ ζήσεται ψυχή μου ἕνεκέν σου.

14 And it happened, that, when Abram came into Egypt, the Egyptians beheld the woman that she was very fair.

12:14 ἐγένετο δὲ ἡνίκα εἰσῆλθεν Ἅβραμ εἰς Αἴγυπτον, ἰδόντες οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι τὴν γυναῖκα ὅτι καλὴ ἦν σφόδρα, 12:14 ἐγένετο δέ, ἡνίκα εἰσῆλθεν Ἅβραμ εἰς Αἴγυπτον, ἰδόντες οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ, ὅτι καλὴ ἦν σφόδρα,

12:16 καὶ τῷ Ἅβραμ εὖ ἐχρήσαντο δι’ αὐτήν, καὶ ἐγένοντο αὐτῷ πρόβατα καὶ μόσχοι καὶ ὄνοι, παῖδες καὶ παιδίσκαι, ἡμίονοι καὶ κάμηλοι. 12:16 καὶ τῷ Ἅβραμ εὖ ἐχρήσαντο δι’ αὐτήν, καὶ ἐγένοντο αὐτῷ πρόβατα καὶ μόσχοι καὶ ὄνοι καὶ παῖδες καὶ παιδίσκαι καὶ ἡμίονοι καὶ κάμηλοι.

12:17 καὶ ἤτασεν θεὸς τὸν Φαραὼ ἐτασμοῖς μεγάλοις καὶ πονηροῖς καὶ τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ περὶ περὶ Σάρας τῆς γυναικὸς Ἅβραμ. 12:17 καὶ ἤτασεν Θεὸς τὸν Φαραὼ ἐτασμοῖς μεγάλοις καὶ πονηροῖς καὶ τὸν οἶκον αὐτοῦ περὶ Σάρας τῆς γυναικὸς Ἅβραμ.

12:18 καλέσας δὲ Φαραὼ τὸν Ἅβραμ εἶπεν, τί τοῦτο ἐποίησάς μοι ὅτι οὐκ ἀπήγγειλάς μοι, ὅτι γυνή σου ἐστίν; 12:18 καλέσας δὲ Φαραὼ τὸν Ἅβραμ εἶπε· τί τοῦτο ἐποίησάς μοι, ὅτι οὐκ ἀπήγγειλάς μοι, ὅτι γυνή σου ἐστίν;

19 Why did you say, She is my sister? So I might have taken her to me to wife: now therefore behold your wife, take her, and go your way.

12:19 ἵνα τί εἶπας ὅτι ἀδελφή μού ἐστιν;
καὶ ἔλαβον αὐτὴν ἐμαυτῷ εἰς γυναῖκα.
καὶ νῦν ἰδοὺ γυνή σου ἐναντίον σου· λαβὼν ἀπότρεχε.
12:19 ἱνατί εἶπας ὅτι ἀδελφή μου ἐστί;
καὶ ἔλαβον αὐτὴν ἐμαυτῷ γυναῖκα, καὶ νῦν ἰδοὺ γυνή σου ἔναντί σου· λαβὼν ἀπότρεχε.

12:20 καὶ ἐνετείλατο Φαραὼ ἀνδράσιν περὶ Ἅβραμ συμπροπέμψαι αὐτὸν καὶ τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντα, ὅσα ἦν αὐτῷ, καὶ Λὼτ μετ’ αὐτοῦ. 12:20 καὶ ἐνετείλατο Φαραὼ ἀνδράσι περὶ Ἅβραμ συμπροπέμψαι αὐτὸν καὶ τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντας, ὅσα ἦν αὐτῷ.
