The soul again

Genesis 12:13 KJV

[13] Say, I pray thee, thou art my sister: that it may be well with me for thy sake; and my soul shall live because of thee.

Modern translation–I would rather live without you than die for you

It is as though Abram knew he must treat his soul like a kidnapped child–my soul must live, sister, let my soul live.

It feels like chattel to me, the moment Abram exchanges his wife for his alleged soul. We are all cowards sometimes, I know this, but it is amazing that this guy is the guy by which all redemption covenants are measured and paid.

For what good does it do for a man to

Gain the whole world and lose his own

Soul?

God gets her back

Because God never breaks a promise
