ASV notes on Genesis 12:10-13 and questions to consider

שלום חברי

Now there was a famine and all the animals that Abraham and Lot had needed food, Abraham didn’t complain to God, he just went on towards Egypt where he heard there were enough of green grass, herbs, and fruit. God blesses what you set your hand to. God blesses, but you have to set your hand to something that He can bless.

When they were about to enter Egypt, Abraham feared for his life because of the beauty of Sarah his wife. He said to Sarah; please tell them that you are my sister. This was not a friendly asking; this was more like an order, even though he said please. Sarah was 65, but still pretty and desirable.

Abraham was not perfect, he told Sarah to lie, well Sarah was Abraham’s half-sister, but by saying that she was his sister, she expressed that she was not Abraham’s wife. Abraham would sacrifice Sarah to become a possible kind of sex slave in Pharaohs’ harem.

Questions to consider

  1. Did Abraham lie?
  2. Why do we have to set our hand to something?
  3. Was Abraham perfect?

    • Hey Chris, was your father in good shape when you were born? and how old was your mother when you were born? By the way when Sarah died Abraham was 137 and maried another woman and had 6 more children. Good to hear from you, have a nice day and greet the family.
