The first occurrence.
And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that he said unto Sarai his wife, “Behold now, I know that you are a fair woman to look upon …” Gen 12:11
(In the Scripture Pic: He shall offer [H7126, qarab] a male without defect.)
The primitive root.
Strong’s H7126 קרב qarab, a primitive root meaning, “to draw near.”
quph ק = sun on the horizon, thus condense, circle, time
resh ר = head of man, thus head, first, top, beginning, man
bet ב = house, thus house, household, family, in, within
The story: That which draws (quph, as the light is drawn back to its source when the sun is on the horizon) the man (resh) home (bet).
