Genesis 21

HNV 1 The LORD visited Sarah as he had said, and the LORD 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. HNV 2 Sarah conceived, and bore Avraham a son in his old age, at the set 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. HNV 3 Avraham called his son who was born to him, whom Sarah bare to him, Yitzchak. NIV 3 Abraham gave the name Isaac to the son Sarah bore him. HNV 4 Avraham circumcised his son, Yitzchak, when he was 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. HNV 5 Avraham was one hundred years old when his son, Yitzchak, was born to him. NIV 5 Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him. HNV 6 Sarah said, "God has made me laugh. 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." HNV 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." 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." HNV 8 The child grew, and was weaned. Avraham made a great feast on the day that Yitzchak was weaned. NIV 8 The child grew and was weaned, and on the day Isaac was weaned Abraham held a great feast. HNV 9 Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Mitzrian, whom she had borne to Avraham, mocking. NIV 9 But Sarah saw that the son whom Hagar the Egyptian had borne to Abraham was mocking, HNV 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." 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." HNV 11 The thing was very grievous in Avraham's sight on account of his son. NIV 11 The matter distressed Abraham greatly because it concerned his son. HNV 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. 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. HNV 13 Also of the son of the handmaid will I make a nation, because he is your seed." NIV 13 I will make the son of the maidservant into a nation also, because he is your offspring." HNV 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. 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. HNV 15 The water in the bottle was spent, 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. HNV 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. 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. HNV 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. 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. HNV 18 Get up, lift up the boy, and hold him in your hand. 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." HNV 19 God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water. She went, filled the bottle with water, and gave the boy 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. HNV 20 God was with the boy, and he grew. He lived in the wilderness, and became, as he grew up, an archer. NIV 20 God was with the boy as he grew up. He lived in the desert and became an archer. HNV 21 He lived in the wilderness of Paran. His mother took a wife for him out of the land of Mitzrayim. NIV 21 While he was living in the Desert of Paran, his mother got a wife for him from Egypt. HNV 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. NIV 22 At that time Abimelech and Phicol the commander of his forces said to Abraham, "God is with you in everything you do. HNV 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." 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." HNV 24 Avraham said, "I will swear." NIV 24 Abraham said, "I swear it." HNV 25 Avraham complained to Avimelekh because of a water well, which Avimelekh's servants had violently taken away. NIV 25 Then Abraham complained to Abimelech about a well of water that Abimelech's servants had seized. HNV 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." 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." HNV 27 Avraham took sheep and oxen, and gave them to Avimelekh. Those two made a covenant. NIV 27 So Abraham brought sheep and cattle and gave them to Abimelech, and the two men made a treaty. HNV 28 Avraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by themselves. NIV 28 Abraham set apart seven ewe lambs from the flock, HNV 29 Avimelekh said to Avraham, "What do these seven ewe lambs which you have set by themselves mean?" NIV 29 and Abimelech asked Abraham, "What is the meaning of these seven ewe lambs you have set apart by themselves?" HNV 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." NIV 30 He replied, "Accept these seven lambs from my hand as a witness that I dug this well." HNV 31 Therefore he called that place Be'er-Sheva, because they both swore there. NIV 31 So that place was called Beersheba, because the two men swore an oath there. HNV 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. 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. HNV 33 Avraham planted a tamarisk tree in Be'er-Sheva, and called there on the name of 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. HNV 34 Avraham sojourned in the land of the Pelishtim many days. NIV 34 And Abraham stayed in the land of the Philistines for a long time.
