View In My Bible
3 Abraham called the name of his son who was born to him, whom Sarah bore him, 1Isaac.a 4 And Abraham 2circumcised his son Isaac when he was eight days old, 3as God had commanded him. 5 4Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him. 6 And Sarah said, 5"God has made laughter for me; everyone who hears will laugh over me." 7 And she said, "Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? 6Yet I have borne him a son in his old age."

God Protects Hagar and Ishmael

8 And the child grew and was weaned. And Abraham made a great feast on the day that Isaac was weaned. 9 But Sarah 7saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, 8laughing.b 10 So she said to Abraham, 9"Cast out this slave woman with her son, for the son of this slave woman shall not be heir with my son Isaac." 11 And the thing was very displeasing to Abraham on account of his son. 12 But God said to Abraham, "Be not displeased because of the boy and because of your slave woman. Whatever Sarah says to you, do as she tells you, for 10through Isaac shall your offspring be named. 13 And I will make 11a nation of the son of the slave woman also, because he is your offspring."
