And Abraham hastened into the tent to Sarah, and said, Knead quickly three seahs of wheaten flour, and make cakes.
And Abraham ran to the herd, and took a calf tender and good, and gave [it] to the attendant; and he hasted to dress it.
And he took thick and sweet milk, and the calf that he had dressed, and set [it] before them; and he stood before them under the tree, and they ate.
And they said to him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent.
And he said, I will certainly return to thee at [this] time of the year, a and behold, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah was listening at the tent-door, which was behind him.
Now Abraham and Sarah were old [and] advanced in age: b it had ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.
And Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am become old, shall I have pleasure, and my lord old?
And Jehovah said to Abraham, Why is this, that Sarah laughs, saying, Shall I indeed bear, when I am become old?
Is [any] matter too wonderful for Jehovah? At the time appointed I will return to thee, at [this] time of the year, and Sarah shall have a son.
And Sarah denied, saying, I did not laugh; for she was afraid. And he said, No; but thou didst laugh.
And the men rose up thence, and looked toward Sodom; and Abraham went with them to conduct them.
