Genesis - Chapter 12
3 I shall bless those who bless you, and shall curse those who curse you, and all clans on earth will bless themselves by you.'
7 Yahweh appeared to Abram and said, 'I shall give this country to your progeny.' And there, Abram built an altar to Yahweh who had appeared to him.
8 From there he moved on to the mountainous district east of Bethel, where he pitched his tent, with Bethel to the west and Ai to the east. There he built an altar to Yahweh and invoked the name of Yahweh.
10 There was a famine in the country, and Abram went down to Egypt to stay there for a time, since the famine in the country was severe.
13 Therefore please tell them you are my sister, so that they may treat me well because of you and spare my life out of regard for you.'
15 When Pharaoh's officials saw her they sang her praises to Pharaoh and the woman was taken into Pharaoh's household.
17 But Yahweh inflicted severe plagues on Pharaoh and his household because of Abram's wife Sarai.

The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) is a Catholic translation of the Bible published in 1985. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) has become the most widely used Roman Catholic Bible outside of the United States. It has the imprimatur of Cardinal George Basil Hume.
Like its predecessor, the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." The 1973 French translation, the Bible de Jerusalem, is followed only "where the text admits to more than one interpretation." Introductions and notes, with some modifications, are taken from the Bible de Jerusalem.
