Genesis 26:18-22; Genesis 26:25; Genesis 26:32
Isaac reopened the wells that had been dug in the time of his father Abraham, which the Philistines had stopped up after Abraham died, and he gave them the same names his father had given them.
Isaac's servants dug in the valley and discovered a well of fresh water there.
But the herdsmen of Gerar quarreled with Isaac's herdsmen and said, "The water is ours!" So he named the well Esek, because they disputed with him.
Then they dug another well, but they quarreled over that one also; so he named it Sitnah.
He moved on from there and dug another well, and no one quarreled over it. He named it Rehoboth, saying, "Now the LORD has given us room and we will flourish in the land."
Isaac built an altar there and called on the name of the LORD. There he pitched his tent, and there his servants dug a well.
That day Isaac's servants came and told him about the well they had dug. They said, "We've found water!"
