- And Jehovah visited Sarah as he had said, and Jehovah did to Sarah as he had spoken.
- And Sarah conceived, and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the appointed time of which God had spoken to him.
- And Abraham called the name of his son who was born to him, whom Sarah bore to him, Isaac.
- And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac, being eight days old, as God had commanded him.
- And Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him.
- And Sarah said, God has made me laugh: all that hear will laugh with me.
- And she said, Who would have said to Abraham, Sarah will suckle children?
For I have borne [him] a son in his old age.
- And the child grew, and was weaned.
And Abraham made a great feast on the day that Isaac was weaned.
- And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, mocking.
- And she said to Abraham, Cast out this handmaid and her son;
for the son of this handmaid shall not inherit with my son — with Isaac.
- And the thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight because of his son.
- And God said to Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad and because of thy handmaid: [in] all that Sarah hath said to thee hearken to her voice, for in Isaac shall a seed be called to thee.
- But also the son of the handmaid will I make a nation, because he is thy seed.
- And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and a flask of water, and gave [it] to Hagar, putting [it] on her shoulder — and the child, and sent her away.
And she departed, and wandered about in the wilderness of Beer-sheba.
- And the water was exhausted from the flask;
and she cast the child under one of the shrubs,
- and she went and sat down over against [him], a bow-shot off;
for she said, Let me not behold the death of the child.
And she sat over against [him], and lifted up her voice and wept.
- And God heard the voice of the lad.
And the Angel of God called to Hagar from the heavens, and said to her, What [aileth] thee, Hagar?
for God hath heard the voice of the lad there, where he is.
- Arise, take the lad, and hold him in thy hand;
for I will make of him a great nation.
- And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water;
and she went and filled the flask with water, and gave the lad drink.
- And God was with the lad, and he grew;
and he dwelt in the wilderness, and became an archer.
- And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran.
And his mother took him a wife out of the land of Egypt.
- And it came to pass at that time that Abimelech, and Phichol the captain of his host, spoke to Abraham, saying, God is with thee in all that thou doest.
- And now swear to me here by God that thou wilt not deal deceitfully with me, nor with my son, nor with my grandson.
According to the kindness that I have done to thee, thou shalt do to me, and to the land in which thou sojournest.
- And Abraham said, I will swear.
- And Abraham reproved Abimelech because of a well of water that Abimelech's servants had violently taken away.
- And Abimelech said, I do not know who has done this, neither hast thou told me [of it], neither have I heard [of it] but to-day.
- And Abraham took sheep and oxen, and gave them to Abimelech;
and both of them made a covenant.
- And Abraham set seven ewe-lambs of the flock by themselves.
- And Abimelech said to Abraham, What [mean] these seven ewe-lambs, these which thou hast set by themselves?
- And he said, That thou take the seven ewe-lambs of my hand, that they may be a witness to me that I have dug this well.
- Therefore he called that place Beer-sheba, because there they had sworn, both of them.
- And they made a covenant at Beer-sheba.
And Abimelech rose up, and Phichol the captain of his host, and returned into the land of the Philistines.
- And [Abraham] planted a tamarisk in Beer-sheba, and called there on the name of Jehovah, the Eternal God.
- And Abraham sojourned in the Philistines' land many days.
