Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And Abram is a son of ninety and nine years, and Jehovah appeareth unto Abram, and saith unto him, `I [am] God Almighty, walk habitually before Me, and be thou perfect; 1 When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to him and said, "I am God Almighty; walk before me and be blameless.
2 and I give My covenant between Me and thee, and multiply thee very exceedingly.' 2 I will confirm my covenant between me and you and will greatly increase your numbers."
3 And Abram falleth upon his face, and God speaketh with him, saying, 3 Abram fell facedown, and God said to him,
4 `I -- lo, My covenant [is] with thee, and thou hast become father of a multitude of nations; 4 "As for me, this is my covenant with you: You will be the father of many nations.
5 and thy name is no more called Abram, but thy name hath been Abraham, for father of a multitude of nations have I made thee; 5 No longer will you be called Abram; your name will be Abraham, for I have made you a father of many nations.
6 and I have made thee exceeding fruitful, and made thee become nations, and kings go out from thee. 6 I will make you very fruitful; I will make nations of you, and kings will come from you.
7 `And I have established My covenant between Me and thee, and thy seed after thee, to their generations, for a covenant age-during, to become God to thee, and to thy seed after thee; 7 I will establish my covenant as an everlasting covenant between me and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you.
8 and I have given to thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land of thy sojournings, the whole land of Canaan, for a possession age-during, and I have become their God.' 8 The whole land of Canaan, where you are now an alien, I will give as an everlasting possession to you and your descendants after you; and I will be their God."
9 And God saith unto Abraham, `And thou dost keep My covenant, thou and thy seed after thee, to their generations; 9 Then God said to Abraham, "As for you, you must keep my covenant, you and your descendants after you for the generations to come.
10 this [is] My covenant which ye keep between Me and you, and thy seed after thee: Every male of you [is] to be circumcised; 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.
11 and ye have circumcised the flesh of your foreskin, and it hath become a token of a covenant between Me and you. 11 You are to undergo circumcision, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and you.
12 `And a son of eight days is circumcised by you; every male to your generations, born in the house, or bought with money from any son of a stranger, who is not of thy seed; 12 For the generations to come every male among you who is eight days old must be circumcised, including those born in your household or bought with money from a foreigner--those who are not your offspring.
13 he is certainly circumcised who [is] born in thine house, or bought with thy money; and My covenant hath become in your flesh a covenant age-during; 13 Whether born in your household or bought with your money, they must be circumcised. My covenant in your flesh is to be an everlasting covenant.
14 and an uncircumcised one, a male, the flesh of whose foreskin is not circumcised, even that person hath been cut off from his people; My covenant he hath broken.' 14 Any uncircumcised male, who has not been circumcised in the flesh, will be cut off from his people; he has broken my covenant."
15 And God saith unto Abraham, `Sarai thy wife -- thou dost not call her name Sarai, for Sarah [is] her name; 15 God also said to Abraham, "As for Sarai your wife, you are no longer to call her Sarai; her name will be Sarah.
16 and I have blessed her, and have also given to thee a son from her; and I have blessed her, and she hath become nations -- kings of peoples are from her.' 16 I will bless her and will surely give you a son by her. I will bless her so that she will be the mother of nations; kings of peoples will come from her."
17 And Abraham falleth upon his face, and laugheth, and saith in his heart, `To the son of an hundred years is one born? or doth Sarah -- daughter of ninety years -- bear?' 17 Abraham fell facedown; he laughed and said to himself, "Will a son be born to a man a hundred years old? Will Sarah bear a child at the age of ninety?"
18 And Abraham saith unto God, `O that Ishmael may live before Thee;' 18 And Abraham said to God, "If only Ishmael might live under your blessing!"
19 and God saith, `Sarah thy wife is certainly bearing a son to thee, and thou hast called his name Isaac, and I have established My covenant with him, for a covenant age-during, to his seed after him. 19 Then God said, "Yes, but your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you will call him Isaac. I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him.
20 As to Ishmael, I have heard thee; lo, I have blessed him, and made him fruitful, and multiplied him, very exceedingly; twelve princes doth he beget, and I have made him become a great nation; 20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: I will surely bless him; I will make him fruitful and will greatly increase his numbers. He will be the father of twelve rulers, and I will make him into a great nation.
21 and My covenant I establish with Isaac, whom Sarah doth bear to thee at this appointed time in the next year;' 21 But my covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you by this time next year."
22 and He finisheth speaking with him, and God goeth up from Abraham. 22 When he had finished speaking with Abraham, God went up from him.
23 And Abraham taketh Ishmael his son, and all those born in his house, and all those bought with his money -- every male among the men of Abraham's house -- and circumciseth the flesh of their foreskin, in this self-same day, as God hath spoken with him. 23 On that very day Abraham took his son Ishmael and all those born in his household or bought with his money, every male in his household, and circumcised them, as God told him.
24 And Abraham [is] a son of ninety and nine years in the flesh of his foreskin being circumcised; 24 Abraham was ninety-nine years old when he was circumcised,
25 and Ishmael his son [is] a son of thirteen years in the flesh of his foreskin being circumcised; 25 and his son Ishmael was thirteen;
26 in this self-same day hath Abraham been circumcised, and Ishmael his son; 26 Abraham and his son Ishmael were both circumcised on that same day.
27 and all the men of his house -- born in the house, and bought with money from the son of a stranger -- have been circumcised with him. 27 And every male in Abraham's household, including those born in his household or bought from a foreigner, was circumcised with him.
