So Abraham prayed unto God: and God healed Abimelech, and his wife, and his maidservants; and they bare children.
So Abraham prayed unto God,.... As the Lord had told Abimelech be would, Genesis 20:7; he might pray for the forgiveness of him and his wife, and might give thanks that Sarah had been restored to him; but chiefly it was on account of Abimelech and his family:
and God healed Abimelech, and his wife, and his maidservants: who by reason of some disease were rendered unfit for and incapable of cohabitation with their husbands, and they with them; but upon Abraham's prayer for them, who was heard, they were healed, and the disorder removed; the Targum of Jonathan is,
"his wife and concubines;''
and they bare children; cohabited and conceived, and bare and brought forth children, all which are comprehended in this expression.
