So Isaac left there, camped in the valley of Gerar, and lived there.
Isaac reopened the water wells that had been dug in the days of his father Abraham and that the Philistines had stopped up after Abraham died. He gave them the same names his father had given them.
Moreover, Isaac's slaves dug in the valley and found a well of springa water there.
But the herdsmen of Gerar quarreled with Isaac's herdsmen and said, "The water is ours!" So he named the well Quarrelb because they quarreled with him.
Then they dug another well and quarreled over that one also, so he named it Hostility.c22
He moved from there and dug another, and they did not quarrel over it. He named it Open Spacesd and said, "For now the Lord has made room for us, and we will be fruitful in the land."
From there he went up to Beer-sheba,
and the Lord appeared to him that night and said, "I am the God of your father Abraham. Do not be afraid, for I am with you. I will bless you and multiply your offspring because of My servant Abraham."
So he built an altar there, worshipede the Lord, and pitched his tent there. Isaac's slaves also dug a well there.f
