Genesis 20

Gaebelein's Annotated BibleGaebelein's Annotated

Verses 1-18

CHAPTER 20 Abraham in Gerar

1. Abraham in Gerar (Genesis 20:1 )

2. Second denial of Sarah (Genesis 20:2 )

3. God’s dealing with Abimelech (Genesis 20:3-7 )

4. Abimelech and Abraham (Genesis 20:8-18 )

Note Abraham’s going down to Egypt in chapter 12 and now going to Gerar and denying again Sarah. In chapter 26 Isaac goes also to Gerar and denies Rebekah. It shows what the flesh is.

But Abraham is greatly honored by the Lord. The Lord called him a prophet. Abraham prayed and God healed Abimelech.
