9Godsaid further to Abraham, "Now as for you, 1you shall keep My covenant, you and your adescendantsafter you throughout their generations.
"2This is My covenant, which you shall keep, between Me and you and your bdescendantsafter you: everymale among you shall be circumcised.
"And 3you shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskin, and it shall be the sign of the covenantbetween Me and you.
"And everymale among you who is 4eightdaysold shall be circumcised throughout your generations, a servant who is born in the house or who is bought with money from anyforeigner , who is not of your cdescendants.
"A servant who is born in your house or 5who is bought with your money shall surely be circumcised; thus shall My covenant be in your flesh for an everlastingcovenant.
"But an uncircumcisedmalewho is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin, that person shall be 6cutoff from his people; he has broken My covenant."
Then Godsaid to Abraham, "As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her nameSarai, but dSarah shall be her name.
"I will bless her, and indeed I will give you 7a son by her. Then I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; 8kings of peoples will ecome from her."
Then Abraham9fell on his face and laughed, and said in his heart, "Will a child be born to a man one hundredyearsold? And 10will Sarah, who is ninetyyearsold, bear a child?"
And Abrahamsaid to God, "Oh that Ishmael might livebefore You!"
But Godsaid, "No, but Sarah your wife will bear you 11a son, and you shall call his namefIsaac; and 12I will establish My covenant with him for an everlastingcovenant for his gdescendantsafter him.
