Genesis 21

LEB 1 And Yahweh visited Sarah as he had said. And Yahweh did to Sarah as he had promised. NIV 1 Now the LORD was gracious to Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did for Sarah what he had promised. LEB 2 And she conceived, and Sarah bore to Abraham a son in his old age at the appointed time that God had told him. NIV 2 Sarah became pregnant and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the very time God had promised him. LEB 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. LEB 4 And Abraham circumcised Isaac his son [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. LEB 5 And Abraham [was] one hundred years old when Isaac his son was born to him. NIV 5 Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him. LEB 6 And Sarah said, "God has made laughter for me; all who hear will laugh for me." NIV 6 Sarah said, “God has brought me laughter, and everyone who hears about this will laugh with me.” LEB 7 And she said, "Who would announce to Abraham [that] Sarah would nurse children? Yet I have borne a son [to Abraham] 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.” LEB 8 And the child grew and was weaned. And Abraham made a great feast on the day Isaac was weaned. NIV 8 The child grew and was weaned, and on the day Isaac was weaned Abraham held a great feast. LEB 9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne Abraham, mocking. NIV 9 But Sarah saw that the son whom Hagar the Egyptian had borne to Abraham was mocking, LEB 10 Then she said to Abraham, "Drive out this slave woman and her son, for the son of this slave woman will not be heir with my son, with Isaac." NIV 10 and she said to Abraham, “Get rid of that slave woman and her son, for that woman’s son will never share in the inheritance with my son Isaac.” LEB 11 And the matter {displeased Abraham very much} on account of his son. NIV 11 The matter distressed Abraham greatly because it concerned his son. LEB 12 Then God said to Abraham, "{Do not be displeased} on account of the boy and on account of the slave woman. {Listen to everything that Sarah said to you}, for through Isaac [your] offspring will be named. NIV 12 But God said to him, “Do not be so distressed about the boy and your slave woman. Listen to whatever Sarah tells you, because it is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned. LEB 13 And I will also make the son of the slave woman into a nation, for he is your offspring." NIV 13 I will make the son of the slave into a nation also, because he is your offspring.” LEB 14 Then Abraham rose up early in the morning and took bread and a skin of water and gave [it] to Hagar, putting [it] on her shoulder. And he sent her away with the child, and she went, wandering about in the wilderness, in Beersheba. 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. LEB 15 And when the water was finished from the skin, she put the child under one of the bushes. NIV 15 When the water in the skin was gone, she put the boy under one of the bushes. LEB 16 And she went and {she sat a good distance away}, for she said, "Let me not see the child's death." So she sat away from him and lifted up her voice and wept. NIV 16 Then she went off and sat down about a bowshot away, for she thought, “I cannot watch the boy die.” And as she sat there, she began to sob. LEB 17 And God heard the cry of the boy and the angel of God called to Hagar from the heavens and said to her, "{What is the matter} Hagar? Do not be afraid, for God has heard the cry of the boy {from 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. LEB 18 Get up, take up the boy and take him with 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.” LEB 19 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water. And she went and filled the skin with water and gave a drink to the boy. 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. LEB 20 And God was with the boy, and he grew and lived in the wilderness. And he became {an expert with a bow}. NIV 20 God was with the boy as he grew up. He lived in the desert and became an archer. LEB 21 And he lived in the wilderness of Paran. And his mother took a wife for him 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. LEB 22 And it happened [that] at that time, Abimelech and Phicol, the commander of his army, said to Abraham, "God [is] with you, in all that you do. NIV 22 At that time Abimelek and Phicol the commander of his forces said to Abraham, “God is with you in everything you do. LEB 23 So now, swear to me here by God [that] you will not deal with me falsely, or with my descendants, or my posterity. According to the kindness that I have done to you, you shall [pledge] to do with me and with the land where you have dwelled as an alien." 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 now reside as a foreigner the same kindness I have shown to you.” LEB 24 And Abraham said, "I swear." NIV 24 Abraham said, “I swear it.” LEB 25 Then Abraham complained to Abimelech on account of the well of water that servants of Abimelech had seized. NIV 25 Then Abraham complained to Abimelek about a well of water that Abimelek’s servants had seized. LEB 26 And Abimelech said, "I do not know who did this thing, neither did you tell me, nor have I heard [of it] except for today." NIV 26 But Abimelek said, “I don’t know who has done this. You did not tell me, and I heard about it only today.” LEB 27 And Abraham took sheep and cattle and gave [them] to Abimelech. And the two of them {made} a covenant. NIV 27 So Abraham brought sheep and cattle and gave them to Abimelek, and the two men made a treaty. LEB 28 Then Abraham set [off] seven ewe-lambs of the flock by themselves. NIV 28 Abraham set apart seven ewe lambs from the flock, LEB 29 And Abimelech said to Abraham, "What [is the meaning of] these seven ewe-lambs that you have set [off] by themselves?" NIV 29 and Abimelek asked Abraham, “What is the meaning of these seven ewe lambs you have set apart by themselves?” LEB 30 And he said, "You shall take the seven ewe-lambs from my hand {as proof on my behalf} that I dug this well." NIV 30 He replied, “Accept these seven lambs from my hand as a witness that I dug this well.” LEB 31 Therefore that place is called Beersheba, because there the two of them swore an oath. NIV 31 So that place was called Beersheba, because the two men swore an oath there. LEB 32 And they {made} a covenant at Beersheba. And Abimelech, and Phicol his army commander stood and returned to the land of the Philistines. NIV 32 After the treaty had been made at Beersheba, Abimelek and Phicol the commander of his forces returned to the land of the Philistines. LEB 33 And he planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba, and there he called on the name of Yahweh, {the everlasting God}. NIV 33 Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba, and there he called on the name of the LORD, the Eternal God. LEB 34 And Abraham dwelled as an alien in the land of the Philistines many days. NIV 34 And Abraham stayed in the land of the Philistines for a long time.
