Reading the Bible for the first time. Came across Genesis Chapter 20 in the King James:

1490336603810The story goes:

>Abraham and his wife are journeying
>They are in Gerar, the King of Gerar takes a fancy to Abraham’s wife
>Abraham says ‘Shes my sister’
>The king fucks Sarah
>God comes to the king and says: “I will kill you and your people because of what you did sleeping with Abraham’s wife”
>The King is all like “wtf I didn’t know!”
>God says “Yeah true you didn’t know, but you still need to make things good”
>The King gives Abraham gold, silver and livestock
>Abraham and Sarah say thanks and wander away to another land
>God makes all the women the King fucks from then on infertile so that his bloodline is no more

Did I misinterpret this? What was the point of this? Did Abraham and God just fuck with people for the sake of it?
