Genesis 21 (Hebrew Names Version)

View In My Bible
1 The LORD visited Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did to Sarah as he had spoken. 2 Sarah conceived, and bore Avraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. 3 Avraham called his son who was born to him, whom Sarah bare to him, Yitzchak. 4 Avraham circumcised his son, Yitzchak, when he was eight days old, as God had commanded him. 5 Avraham was one hundred years old when his son, Yitzchak, was born to him. 6 Sarah said, "God has made me laugh. Everyone who hears will laugh with me." 7 She said, "Who would have said to Avraham, that Sarah would nurse children? For I have borne him a son in his old age." 8 The child grew, and was weaned. Avraham made a great feast on the day that Yitzchak was weaned. 9 Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Mitzrian, whom she had borne to Avraham, mocking. 10 Therefore she said to Avraham, "Cast out this handmaid and her son! For the son of this handmaid will not be heir with my son, even with Yitzchak." 11 The thing was very grievous in Avraham's sight on account of his son. 12 God said to Avraham, "Don't let it be grievous in your sight because of the boy, and because of your handmaid. In all that Sarah says to you, listen to her voice. For from Yitzchak will your seed be called. 13 Also of the son of the handmaid will I make a nation, because he is your seed." 14 Avraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread and a bottle of water, and gave it to Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and gave her the child, and sent her away. She departed, and wandered in the wilderness of Be'er-Sheva. 15 The water in the bottle was spent, and she cast the child under one of the shrubs. 16 She went and sat down opposite him, a good way off, about a bow shot away. For she said, "Don't let me see the death of the child." She sat over against him, and lifted up her voice, and wept. 17 God heard the voice of the boy. The angel of God called to Hagar out of the sky, and said to her, "What ails you, Hagar? Don't be afraid. For God has heard the voice of the boy where he is. 18 Get up, lift up the boy, and hold him in your hand. For I will make him a great nation." 19 God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water. She went, filled the bottle with water, and gave the boy drink. 20 God was with the boy, and he grew. He lived in the wilderness, and became, as he grew up, an archer. 21 He lived in the wilderness of Paran. His mother took a wife for him out of the land of Mitzrayim. 22 It happened at that time, that Avimelekh and Pikhol the captain of his host spoke to Avraham, saying, "God is with you in all that you do. 23 Now therefore swear to me here by God that you will not deal falsely with me, nor with my son, nor with my son's son. But according to the kindness that I have done to you, you shall do to me, and to the land in which you have sojourned." 24 Avraham said, "I will swear." 25 Avraham complained to Avimelekh because of a water well, which Avimelekh's servants had violently taken away. 26 Avimelekh said, I don't know who has done this thing. Neither did you tell me, neither did I hear of it, until today." 27 Avraham took sheep and oxen, and gave them to Avimelekh. Those two made a covenant. 28 Avraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by themselves. 29 Avimelekh said to Avraham, "What do these seven ewe lambs which you have set by themselves mean?" 30 He said, "You shall take these seven ewe lambs from my hand, that it may be a witness to me, that I have dug this well." 31 Therefore he called that place Be'er-Sheva, because they both swore there. 32 So they made a covenant at Be'er-Sheva. Avimelekh rose up with Pikhol, the captain of his host, and they returned into the land of the Pelishtim. 33 Avraham planted a tamarisk tree in Be'er-Sheva, and called there on the name of the LORD, the Everlasting God. 34 Avraham sojourned in the land of the Pelishtim many days.
