And Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the Negeb.
All Commentaries on Genesis 13:1 Go To Genesis 13
Ambrose of Milan
So Abraham left, taking with him his wife Sarah, which means “sovereign,” not “servant.” Therefore it was said to Abraham, “Listen to your wife Sarah.” In fact, she who is liberated from the slavery of sin obtains sovereignty, not servitude. Therefore a sound mind possesses sovereign virtue, which has dominion over the bodily senses, which is not subject, which has brought back everything from Egypt, which has not left there any of the norms that regulate her life. Such a mind is not clothed with intemperance or insolence or shameful immodesty. Nor is it lacking the veil of prudent wisdom, and it is clothed with modesty. .
