Let a little water be brought, and then you may all wash your feet1 and rest under this tree.
Let me get you something to eat,2 so you can be refreshed and then go on your way--now that you have come to your servant." "Very well," they answered, "do as you say."
So Abraham hurried into the tent to Sarah. "Quick," he said, "get three seahsa of fine flour and knead it and bake some bread."37
Then he ran to the herd and selected a choice, tender calf4 and gave it to a servant, who hurried to prepare it.
He then brought some curds5 and milk6 and the calf that had been prepared, and set these before them.7 While they ate, he stood near them under a tree.
"Where is your wife Sarah?"8 they asked him. "There, in the tent,9" he said.
Then the LORD b said, "I will surely return to you about this time next year,10 and Sarah your wife will have a son."11 Now Sarah was listening at the entrance to the tent, which was behind him.
Abraham and Sarah were already old and well advanced in years,12 and Sarah was past the age of childbearing.1312
So Sarah laughed14 to herself as she thought, "After I am worn out and my masterc15 is old, will I now have this pleasure?"
Then the LORD said to Abraham, "Why did Sarah laugh and say, 'Will I really have a child, now that I am old?'1614
Is anything too hard for the LORD?17 I will return to you at the appointed time next year18 and Sarah will have a son."19
