Abraham lies about Sarah?  Lotís daughters slept with Lot?  Jacob several wives, is it no people will multiply often destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah?

Here is the answer to your question.  Abraham should have spoken the truth.  God is an almighty God.  He can help him with his problem.  Due to lack of faith he committed this sin.  He was afraid that the Egyptians see Sarah so beautiful they may kill him as stated in Gen 12:12 "This his wife; and they will kill me, but they will let you live."   Abraham's sin caused God to punished the Pharaoh as in Gen 12:17-18 "the Lord plagued Pharaoh and his home with great plagues because of Sarai, Abraham's wife.  And the Pharaoh called Abram and said, what is this you have done to me?  Why did you not tell, that she was your wife?  Why did you say, 'she is my sister?  I might have taken her as my wife.  Now therefore, here is your wife; take her and go your way." 

Lot's daughters slept with their father were committing adultery.   Due to lack of faith they were worried that there would not be any more descendants.   As the result of these sins the first daughter bore a son named Moab and became the father of Moabites.  The second daughter bore a son named Ben-Ammi and became the father of Ammon (Gen 19:37-38).   These descendants of Lots resulted in wars and sorrows upon the Israelites and God allowed this to happen because of sins committed by Job's daughter. The Bible says in Exo 20:5"ÖFor I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers, upon his children to the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me."

Jacob had four wives.  They were Leah, Rachel, Bilhah (Rachel's maid), Zilpah (Leah's maid) found in Genesis 30.  I have not come across the Bible text that mentions that Jacob had a wife who was his half sister.

God favored Abraham and his seeds because he was faithful to God and he is known "as the father of many nations" Gen 17:4  Henceforth,  God had established a covenant with Abraham and his descendants as stated in Gen 17:7 "and I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God in you and your descendants after you."  Gen 26:4-5"And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands; and in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed; because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws."
