This is more of a humorous post that stemmed from yesterday’s post on Counting in the Bible. Let’s establish something from Gen 17:17:
“Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?”
At this point, Abraham was 100 and Sarah was 90. So there was an age difference of 10 years between them. Let’s look further in Gen 20:1-2:
“1 And Abraham journeyed from thence toward the south country, and dwelled between Kadesh and Shur, and sojourned in Gerar. 2 And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, She is my sister: and Abimelech king of Gerar sent, and took Sarah.”
Okay, this is where I’m going. Can someone explain to me what King Abimelech wanted with a 90 year old woman? LOL! I can’t even deal.
Food for thought:
The Bible says Sarah was very beautiful (Gen 12:14). She must have still been radiant at that age for Father Abraham to be insecure.
Psalm 92:14 “They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing”
