GEN  26: 2 
And the LORD appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of:
GEN  26: 3 
Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;
GEN  26: 4 
And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;
GEN  26: 5 
Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.
GEN  26: 6 
And Isaac dwelt in Gerar:
GEN  26: 7 
And the men of the place asked him of his wife; and he said, She is my sister: for he feared to say, She is my wife; lest, said he, the men of the place should kill me for Rebekah; because she was fair to look upon.
GEN  26: 8 
And it came to pass, when he had been there a long time, that Abimelech king of the Philistines looked out at a window, and saw, and, behold, Isaac was sporting with Rebekah his wife.
GEN  26: 9

GEN  26: 10 
And Abimelech said, What is this thou hast done unto us? one of the people might lightly have lien with thy wife, and thou shouldest have brought guiltiness upon us.
GEN  26: 11 
And Abimelech charged all his people, saying, He that toucheth this man or his wife shall surely be put to death.

GEN  26: 15 
For all the wells which his father's servants had digged in the days of Abraham his father, the Philistines had stopped them, and filled them with earth.

GEN  26: 17 
And Isaac departed thence, and pitched his tent in the valley of Gerar, and dwelt there.
GEN  26: 18
