Genisis 12

The Lord called Abram, to leave his family and his fathers house to a land that will be shown to him.

vs4. Abram went. That is awesome.

When Abram left he was 75, he took his wife Sarai and his Nephew Lot. he was probably not supposed to bring Lot.

After Abram went through the country of the Cannanites the Lord came to him and told Abram that God would give this land to Abrams decendants.

The land that the Lord promised to Abrams offspring was not the place God was taking Abram to. After that he traveled on to the Negeb.

Abram and Sarai went to Egypt.

The first lie. Sarai was probably around 65 at this time and still considered absolutely beautiful. So Sarai was asked to lie about her full relationship with Abram. Abram asked her to say that she was his sister instead of his wife. The Pharoah took Sarai into his household and dealt wealth to Abram. Then the Lord sent plauges on the Pharoahs house hold. (the first time Egypt was plauged by God because of his people). Then the pharoah told Abram to get out because he was unhappy that Abram had lied to him.
