Genesis 21

YLT 1 And Jehovah hath looked after Sarah as He hath said, and Jehovah doth to Sarah as He hath spoken; NIV 1 Now the LORD was gracious to Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did for Sarah what he had promised. YLT 2 and Sarah conceiveth, and beareth a son to Abraham, to his old age, at the appointed time that God hath spoken of with him; NIV 2 Sarah became pregnant and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the very time God had promised him. YLT 3 and Abraham calleth the name of his son who is born to him, whom Sarah hath born to him -- Isaac; NIV 3 Abraham gave the name Isaac to the son Sarah bore him. YLT 4 and Abraham circumciseth Isaac his son, [being] a son of eight days, as God hath commanded him. NIV 4 When his son Isaac was eight days old, Abraham circumcised him, as God commanded him. YLT 5 And Abraham [is] a son of a hundred years in Isaac his son being born to him, NIV 5 Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him. YLT 6 and Sarah saith, `God hath made laughter for me; every one who is hearing laugheth for me.' NIV 6 Sarah said, "God has brought me laughter, and everyone who hears about this will laugh with me." YLT 7 She saith also, `Who hath said to Abraham, Sarah hath suckled sons, that I have born a son for 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." YLT 8 And the lad groweth, and is weaned, and Abraham maketh a great banquet in the day of Isaac's being weaned; NIV 8 The child grew and was weaned, and on the day Isaac was weaned Abraham held a great feast. YLT 9 and Sarah seeth the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she hath borne to Abraham, mocking, NIV 9 But Sarah saw that the son whom Hagar the Egyptian had borne to Abraham was mocking, YLT 10 and she saith to Abraham, `Cast out this handmaid and her son; for the son of this handmaid hath no possession 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." YLT 11 And the thing is very wrong in the eyes of Abraham, for his son's sake; NIV 11 The matter distressed Abraham greatly because it concerned his son. YLT 12 and God saith unto Abraham, `Let it not be wrong in thine eyes because of the youth, and because of thy handmaid: all that Sarah saith unto thee -- hearken to her voice, for in Isaac is a seed 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. YLT 13 As to the son of the handmaid also, for a nation I set him, because he [is] thy seed.' NIV 13 I will make the son of the maidservant into a nation also, because he is your offspring." YLT 14 And Abraham riseth early in the morning, and taketh bread, and a bottle of water, and giveth unto Hagar (placing [it] on her shoulder), also the lad, and sendeth her out; and she goeth on, and goeth astray 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. YLT 15 and the water is consumed from the bottle, and she placeth the lad under one of the shrubs. NIV 15 When the water in the skin was gone, she put the boy under one of the bushes. YLT 16 And she goeth and sitteth by herself over-against, afar off, about a bow-shot, for she said, `Let me not look on the death of the lad;' and she sitteth over-against, and lifteth up her voice, and weepeth. 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. YLT 17 And God heareth the voice of the youth; and the messenger of God calleth unto Hagar from the heavens, and saith to her, `What to thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath hearkened unto the voice of the youth 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. YLT 18 rise, lift up the youth, and lay hold on him with thy hand, for for a great nation I set him.' NIV 18 Lift the boy up and take him by the hand, for I will make him into a great nation." YLT 19 And God openeth her eyes, and she seeth a well of water, and she goeth and filleth the bottle [with] water, and causeth the youth to 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. YLT 20 and God is with the youth, and he groweth, and dwelleth in the wilderness, and is an archer; NIV 20 God was with the boy as he grew up. He lived in the desert and became an archer. YLT 21 and he dwelleth in the wilderness of Paran, and his mother taketh for him a wife 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. YLT 22 And it cometh to pass at that time that Abimelech speaketh -- Phichol also, head of his host -- unto Abraham, saying, `God [is] with thee in all that thou art doing; NIV 22 At that time Abimelech and Phicol the commander of his forces said to Abraham, "God is with you in everything you do. YLT 23 and now, swear to me by God here: thou dost not lie to me, or to my continuator, or to my successor; according to the kindness which I have done with thee thou dost with me, and with the land in which thou hast 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." YLT 24 And Abraham saith, `I -- I do swear.' NIV 24 Abraham said, "I swear it." YLT 25 And Abraham reasoned with Abimelech concerning the matter of a well of water which Abimelech's servants have taken violently away, NIV 25 Then Abraham complained to Abimelech about a well of water that Abimelech's servants had seized. YLT 26 and Abimelech saith, `I have not known who hath done this thing, and even thou didst not declare to me, and I also, I have not heard save 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." YLT 27 And Abraham taketh sheep and oxen, and giveth to Abimelech, and they make, both of them, a covenant; NIV 27 So Abraham brought sheep and cattle and gave them to Abimelech, and the two men made a treaty. YLT 28 and Abraham setteth seven Lambs of the flock by themselves. NIV 28 Abraham set apart seven ewe lambs from the flock, YLT 29 And Abimelech saith unto Abraham, `What [are] they -- these seven lambs 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?" YLT 30 And he saith, `For -- the seven lambs thou dost accept from my hand, so that it becometh a witness for me that I have digged this well;' NIV 30 He replied, "Accept these seven lambs from my hand as a witness that I dug this well." YLT 31 therefore hath he called that place `Beer-Sheba,' for there have both of them sworn. NIV 31 So that place was called Beersheba, because the two men swore an oath there. YLT 32 And they make a covenant in Beer-Sheba, and Abimelech riseth -- Phichol also, head of his host -- and they turn back unto 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. YLT 33 and [Abraham] planteth a tamarask in Beer-Sheba, and preacheth there in the name of Jehovah, God age-during; NIV 33 Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba, and there he called upon the name of the LORD, the Eternal God. YLT 34 and Abraham sojourneth in the land of the Philistines many days. NIV 34 And Abraham stayed in the land of the Philistines for a long time.
