Genesis 21

DBY 1 And Jehovah visited Sarah as he had said, and Jehovah did to Sarah as he had spoken. NIV 1 Now the LORD was gracious to Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did for Sarah what he had promised. DBY 2 And Sarah conceived, and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the appointed time of which God had spoken to him. NIV 2 Sarah became pregnant and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the very time God had promised him. DBY 3 And Abraham called the name of his son who was born to him, whom Sarah bore to him, Isaac. NIV 3 Abraham gave the name Isaac to the son Sarah bore him. DBY 4 And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac, being eight days old, as God had commanded him. NIV 4 When his son Isaac was eight days old, Abraham circumcised him, as God commanded him. DBY 5 And Abraham was a hundred 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. DBY 6 And Sarah said, God has made me laugh: all that hear will laugh with me. NIV 6 Sarah said, "God has brought me laughter, and everyone who hears about this will laugh with me." DBY 7 And she said, Who would have said to Abraham, Sarah will suckle children? For 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." DBY 8 And the child grew, and was weaned. And Abraham made a great feast on the day that Isaac was weaned. NIV 8 The child grew and was weaned, and on the day Isaac was weaned Abraham held a great feast. DBY 9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, mocking. NIV 9 But Sarah saw that the son whom Hagar the Egyptian had borne to Abraham was mocking, DBY 10 And she said to Abraham, Cast out this handmaid and her son; for the son of this handmaid shall not inherit with my son -- with 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." DBY 11 And the thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight because of his son. NIV 11 The matter distressed Abraham greatly because it concerned his son. DBY 12 And God said to Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad and because of thy handmaid: [in] all that Sarah hath said to thee hearken to her voice, for in Isaac shall a seed be called to thee. 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. DBY 13 But also the son of the handmaid will I make a nation, because he is thy seed. NIV 13 I will make the son of the maidservant into a nation also, because he is your offspring." DBY 14 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and a flask of water, and gave [it] to Hagar, putting [it] on her shoulder -- and the child, and sent her away. And she departed, and wandered about 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. DBY 15 And the water was exhausted from the flask; and she cast the child under one of the shrubs, NIV 15 When the water in the skin was gone, she put the boy under one of the bushes. DBY 16 and she went and sat down over against [him], a bow-shot off; for she said, Let me not behold the death of the child. And she sat over against [him], and lifted up her voice and wept. 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. DBY 17 And God heard the voice of the lad. And the Angel of God called to Hagar from the heavens, and said to her, What [aileth] thee, Hagar? Fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad there, 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. DBY 18 Arise, take the lad, and hold him in thy hand; for I will make of 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." DBY 19 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went and filled the flask with water, and gave the lad 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. DBY 20 And God was with the lad, and he grew; and he dwelt 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. DBY 21 And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran. And his mother took him a wife out of the land of Egypt. NIV 21 While he was living in the Desert of Paran, his mother got a wife for him from Egypt. DBY 22 And it came to pass at that time that Abimelech, and Phichol the captain of his host, spoke to Abraham, saying, God is with thee in all that thou doest. NIV 22 At that time Abimelech and Phicol the commander of his forces said to Abraham, "God is with you in everything you do. DBY 23 And now swear to me here by God that thou wilt not deal deceitfully with me, nor with my son, nor with my grandson. According to the kindness that I have done to thee, thou shalt do to me, and to the land in which thou sojournest. 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." DBY 24 And Abraham said, I will swear. NIV 24 Abraham said, "I swear it." DBY 25 And Abraham reproved Abimelech because of a well of water that Abimelech's servants had violently taken away. NIV 25 Then Abraham complained to Abimelech about a well of water that Abimelech's servants had seized. DBY 26 And Abimelech said, I do not know who has done this, neither hast thou told me [of it], neither have I heard [of it] but to-day. 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." DBY 27 And Abraham took sheep and oxen, and gave them to Abimelech; and both 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. DBY 28 And Abraham set seven ewe-lambs of the flock by themselves. NIV 28 Abraham set apart seven ewe lambs from the flock, DBY 29 And Abimelech said to Abraham, What [mean] these seven ewe-lambs, these which thou hast set by themselves? NIV 29 and Abimelech asked Abraham, "What is the meaning of these seven ewe lambs you have set apart by themselves?" DBY 30 And he said, That thou take the seven ewe-lambs of my hand, that they may be a witness to me that I have dug this well. NIV 30 He replied, "Accept these seven lambs from my hand as a witness that I dug this well." DBY 31 Therefore he called that place Beer-sheba, because there they had sworn, both of them. NIV 31 So that place was called Beersheba, because the two men swore an oath there. DBY 32 And they made a covenant at Beer-sheba. And Abimelech rose up, and Phichol the captain of his host, and returned into 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. DBY 33 And [Abraham] planted a tamarisk in Beer-sheba, and called there on the name of Jehovah, the Eternal God. NIV 33 Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba, and there he called upon the name of the LORD, the Eternal God. DBY 34 And Abraham sojourned in the Philistines' land many days. NIV 34 And Abraham stayed in the land of the Philistines for a long time.
