Genesis 21

CSB 1 The Lord came to Sarah as He had said, and the Lord did for Sarah what He had promised. NIV 1 Now the LORD was gracious to Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did for Sarah what he had promised. CSB 2 Sarah became pregnant and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the appointed time God had told him. NIV 2 Sarah became pregnant and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the very time God had promised him. CSB 3 Abraham named his son who was born to him-the one Sarah bore to him-Isaac. NIV 3 Abraham gave the name Isaac to the son Sarah bore him. CSB 4 When his son Isaac was eight days old, Abraham circumcised him, as God had commanded him. NIV 4 When his son Isaac was eight days old, Abraham circumcised him, as God commanded him. CSB 5 Abraham was 100 years old when his son Isaac was born to him. NIV 5 Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him. CSB 6 Sarah said, "God has made me laugh, and everyone who hears will laugh with me." NIV 6 Sarah said, "God has brought me laughter, and everyone who hears about this will laugh with me." CSB 7 She also said, "Who would have told Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? Yet I have borne him a son in his old age." NIV 7 And she added, "Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? Yet I have borne him a son in his old age." CSB 8 The child grew and was weaned, and Abraham held a great feast on the day Isaac was weaned. NIV 8 The child grew and was weaned, and on the day Isaac was weaned Abraham held a great feast. CSB 9 But Sarah saw the son mocking-the one Hagar the Egyptian had borne to Abraham. NIV 9 But Sarah saw that the son whom Hagar the Egyptian had borne to Abraham was mocking, CSB 10 So she said to Abraham, "Drive out this slave with her son, for the son of this slave will not be a co-heir with my son Isaac!" NIV 10 and she said to Abraham, "Get rid of that slave woman and her son, for that slave woman's son will never share in the inheritance with my son Isaac." CSB 11 Now this was a very difficult thing for Abraham because of his son. NIV 11 The matter distressed Abraham greatly because it concerned his son. CSB 12 But God said to Abraham, "Do not be concerned about the boy and your slave. Whatever Sarah says to you, listen to her, because your offspring will be traced through Isaac. NIV 12 But God said to him, "Do not be so distressed about the boy and your maidservant. Listen to whatever Sarah tells you, because it is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned. CSB 13 But I will also make a nation of the slave's son because he is your offspring." NIV 13 I will make the son of the maidservant into a nation also, because he is your offspring." CSB 14 Early in the morning Abraham got up, took bread and a waterskin, [put them] on Hagar's shoulders, and sent her and the boy away. She left and wandered in the Wilderness of Beer-sheba. NIV 14 Early the next morning Abraham took some food and a skin of water and gave them to Hagar. He set them on her shoulders and then sent her off with the boy. She went on her way and wandered in the desert of Beersheba. CSB 15 When the water in the skin was gone, she left the boy under one of the bushes. NIV 15 When the water in the skin was gone, she put the boy under one of the bushes. CSB 16 Then she went and sat down nearby, about a bowshot away, for she said, "I can't [bear to] watch the boy die!" So as she sat nearby, she wept loudly. NIV 16 Then she went off and sat down nearby, about a bowshot away, for she thought, "I cannot watch the boy die." And as she sat there nearby, she began to sob. CSB 17 God heard the voice of the boy, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, "What's wrong, Hagar? Don't be afraid, for God has heard the voice of the boy from the place where he is. NIV 17 God heard the boy crying, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, "What is the matter, Hagar? Do not be afraid; God has heard the boy crying as he lies there. CSB 18 Get up, help the boy up, and sustain him, for I will make him a great nation." NIV 18 Lift the boy up and take him by the hand, for I will make him into a great nation." CSB 19 Then God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water. So she went and filled the waterskin and gave the boy a drink. NIV 19 Then God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water. So she went and filled the skin with water and gave the boy a drink. CSB 20 God was with the boy, and he grew; he settled in the wilderness and became an archer. NIV 20 God was with the boy as he grew up. He lived in the desert and became an archer. CSB 21 He settled in the Wilderness of Paran, and his mother got a wife for him from the land of Egypt. NIV 21 While he was living in the Desert of Paran, his mother got a wife for him from Egypt. CSB 22 At that time Abimelech, with Phicol the commander of his army, said to Abraham, "God is with you in everything you do. NIV 22 At that time Abimelech and Phicol the commander of his forces said to Abraham, "God is with you in everything you do. CSB 23 Now swear to me here by God that you will not break an agreement with me or with my children and descendants. As I have kept faith with you, so you will keep faith with me and with the country where you are a resident alien." NIV 23 Now swear to me here before God that you will not deal falsely with me or my children or my descendants. Show to me and the country where you are living as an alien the same kindness I have shown to you." CSB 24 And Abraham said, "I swear [it]." NIV 24 Abraham said, "I swear it." CSB 25 But Abraham complained to Abimelech because of the water well that Abimelech's servants had seized. NIV 25 Then Abraham complained to Abimelech about a well of water that Abimelech's servants had seized. CSB 26 Abimelech replied, "I don't know who did this thing. You didn't report anything to me, so I hadn't heard about it until today." NIV 26 But Abimelech said, "I don't know who has done this. You did not tell me, and I heard about it only today." CSB 27 Then Abraham took sheep and cattle and gave them to Abimelech, and the two of them made a covenant. NIV 27 So Abraham brought sheep and cattle and gave them to Abimelech, and the two men made a treaty. CSB 28 But Abraham had set apart seven ewe lambs from the flock. NIV 28 Abraham set apart seven ewe lambs from the flock, CSB 29 And Abimelech said to Abraham, "Why have you set apart these seven ewe lambs?" NIV 29 and Abimelech asked Abraham, "What is the meaning of these seven ewe lambs you have set apart by themselves?" CSB 30 He replied, "You are to accept the seven ewe lambs from my hand so that this act will serve as my witness that I dug this well." NIV 30 He replied, "Accept these seven lambs from my hand as a witness that I dug this well." CSB 31 Therefore that place was called Beer-sheba because it was there that the two of them swore an oath. NIV 31 So that place was called Beersheba, because the two men swore an oath there. CSB 32 After they had made a covenant at Beer-sheba, Abimelech and Phicol, the commander of his army, left and returned to the land of the Philistines. NIV 32 After the treaty had been made at Beersheba, Abimelech and Phicol the commander of his forces returned to the land of the Philistines. CSB 33 Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beer-sheba, and there he worshiped the Lord, the Everlasting God. NIV 33 Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba, and there he called upon the name of the LORD, the Eternal God. CSB 34 And Abraham lived as a foreigner in the land of the Philistines for many days. NIV 34 And Abraham stayed in the land of the Philistines for a long time.
