Genesis 26, How old was Abimelech?

Question: Abimelec should of learn his first lesson with Abraham & Sara, He is a bad men. He was still around with Isaac, How old was he? Abimelec? Answer: This situation is different than Abraham and Sarah's, because although they said she was his sister, Abimelech did not marry her or add her to his harem (Gen 26:10). So maybe he did learn his lesson. This may not be the same person that Abraham dealt with. Abimelech might be a title for the king of the Philistines, like Pharaoh is for Egypt. This might be a son or other person with the same name. Or it might be the original Abimelech 80 years older. -PJ
