Genesis 20:6

And God said to him in a dream, "Yes, I know that you did this in the integrity of your heart. For I also withheld you from sinning against Me; therefore I did not let you touch her.

അതിന്നു ദൈവം സ്വപ്നത്തിൽ അവനോടു: നീ ഇതു ഹൃദയപരമാർത്ഥതയോടെ ചെയ്തിരിക്കുന്നു എന്നു ഞാൻ അറിയുന്നു; നീ എന്നോടു പാപം ചെയ്യാതിരിപ്പാൻ ഞാൻ നിന്നെ തടുത്തു; അതുകൊണ്ടാകുന്നു അവളെ തൊടുവാൻ ഞാൻ നിന്നെ സമ്മതിക്കാതിരുന്നതു.
