Genesis 21:17-27 (Douay-Rheims)

View In My Bible
17 And God heard the voice of the boy: and an angel of God called to Agar from heaven, saying: What art thou doing, Agar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the boy, from the place wherein he is. 18 Arise, take up the boy, and hold him by the hand, for I will make him a great nation. 19 And God opened her eyes: and she saw a well of water, and went and filled the bottle, and gave the boy to drink. 20 And God was with him: and he grew, and dwelt in the wilderness, and became a young man, an archer. 21 And he dwelt in the wilderness of Pharan, and his mother took a wife for him out of the land of Egypt. 22 At the same time Abimelech, and Phicol the general of his army, said to Abraham: God is with thee in all that thou dost. 23 Swear therefore by God, that thou wilt not hurt me, nor my posterity, nor my stock: but according to the kindness that I have done to thee, thou shalt do to me, and to the land wherein thou hast lived a stranger. 24 And Abraham said: I will swear. 25 And he reproved Abimelech for a well of water, which his servants had taken away by force. 26 And Abimelech answered: I knew not who did this thing: and thou didst not tell me, and I heard not of it till today. 27 Then Abraham took sheep and oxen, and gave them to Abimelech: and both of them made a league.
