Genesis 17:15-21 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
15 God also said to Abraham, "As for Sarai1 your wife, you are no longer to call her Sarai; her name will be Sarah.2 16 I will bless her and will surely give you a son by her.3 I will bless her so that she will be the mother of nations;4 kings of peoples will come from her." 17 Abraham fell facedown;5 he laughed6 and said to himself, "Will a son be born to a man a hundred years old?7 Will Sarah bear a child at the age of ninety?"8 18 And Abraham said to God, "If only Ishmael9 might live under your blessing!"10 19 Then God said, "Yes, but your wife Sarah will bear you a son,11 and you will call him Isaac.a12 I will establish my covenant with him13 as an everlasting covenant14 for his descendants after him. 20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: I will surely bless him; I will make him fruitful and will greatly increase his numbers.15 He will be the father of twelve rulers,16 and I will make him into a great nation.17 21 But my covenant18 I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you19 by this time next year."20
