The Covenant of Circumcision

1 When Abram was ninety-nine years old,1 the LORD appeared to him2 and said, "I am God Almightya;3 walk before me and be blameless.4 2 I will confirm my covenant between me and you5 and will greatly increase your numbers."6 3 Abram fell facedown,7 and God said to him, 4 "As for me, this is my covenant with you:8 You will be the father of many nations.9 5 No longer will you be called Abramb; your name will be Abraham,c10 for I have made you a father of many nations.11 6 I will make you very fruitful;12 I will make nations of you, and kings will come from you.13 7 I will establish my covenant1415 as an everlasting covenant1617 between me and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God18 and the God of your descendants after you.19 8 The whole land of Canaan,20 where you are now an alien,21 I will give as an everlasting possession to you and your descendants after you;22 and I will be their God.23" 9 Then God said to Abraham, "As for you, you must keep my covenant,24 you and your descendants after you for the generations to come.25 10 This is my covenant with you and your descendants after you, the covenant you are to keep: Every male among you shall be circumcised.26
