And Abram and Nahor took them wives: the name of Abram's wife was
Sarai; and the name of Nahor's wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah.
And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son's son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram's wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.
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 gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.
And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that he said unto Sarai his wife, Behold now, I know that thou art
a fair woman to look upon:
And the LORD plagued Pharaoh and his house with great plagues because of Sarai Abram's wife.
Now Sarai Abram's wife bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was
And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the LORD hath restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai.
And Sarai Abram's wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife.
And Sarai said unto Abram, My wrong be
upon thee: I have given my maid into thy bosom; and when she saw that she had conceived, I was despised in her eyes: the LORD judge between me and thee.
But Abram said unto Sarai, Behold, thy maid is
in thy hand; do to her as it pleaseth thee. And when Sarai dealt hardly with her, she fled from her face.
And he said, Hagar, Sarai's maid, whence camest thou? and whither wilt thou go? And she said, I flee from the face of my mistress Sarai.
And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall
her name be
Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child
be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?
And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and
with his seed after him.
But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.
And Abraham hastened into the tent unto Sarah, and said, Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it
, and make cakes upon the hearth.
And they said unto him, Where is
Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent.
And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it
in the tent door, which was
Now Abraham and Sarah were
well stricken in age; and
it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.
Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?
And the LORD said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?
Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.
Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And he said, Nay; but thou didst laugh.
And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, She is
my sister: and Abimelech king of Gerar sent, and took Sarah.
And Abimelech took sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and womenservants, and gave them
unto Abraham, and restored him Sarah his wife.
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
: thus she was reproved.
For the LORD had fast closed up all the wombs of the house of Abimelech, because of Sarah Abraham's wife.
And the LORD visited Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did unto Sarah as he had spoken.
For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him.
And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him, whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac.
And Sarah said, God hath 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 Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto Abraham, mocking.
And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called.
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.
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 Sarah my master's wife bare a son to my master when she was old: and unto him hath he given all that he hath.
And Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah's tent, and took Rebekah, and she became his wife; and he loved her: and Isaac was comforted after his mother's death
The field which Abraham purchased of the sons of Heth: there was Abraham buried, and Sarah his wife.
Now these are
the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's handmaid, bare unto Abraham:
There they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife; there they buried Isaac and Rebekah his wife; and there I buried Leah.
1 Chronicles 4:22
And Jokim, and the men of Chozeba, and Joash, and Saraph, who had the dominion in Moab, and Jashubilehem. And these are
Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that
bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him.
And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara's womb:
For this is
the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sara shall have a son.
Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.
1 Peter 3:6
Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.
