Genesis 21

NRS 1 The Lord dealt with Sarah as he had said, and the Lord did for Sarah as he had promised. CEB 1 The LORD was attentive to Sarah just as he had said, and the LORD carried out just what he had promised her. NRS 2 Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the time of which God had spoken to him. CEB 2 She became pregnant and gave birth to a son for Abraham when he was old, at the very time God had told him. NRS 3 Abraham gave the name Isaac to his son whom Sarah bore him. CEB 3 Abraham named his son—the one Sarah bore him—Isaac. NRS 4 And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac when he was eight days old, as God had commanded him. CEB 4 Abraham circumcised his son Isaac when he was eight days old just as God had commanded him. NRS 5 Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him. CEB 5 Abraham was 100 years old when his son Isaac was born. NRS 6 Now Sarah said, "God has brought laughter for me; everyone who hears will laugh with me." CEB 6 Sarah said, "God has given me laughter. Everyone who hears about it will laugh with me." NRS 7 And she said, "Who would ever have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? Yet I have borne him a son in his old age." CEB 7 She said, "Who could have told Abraham that Sarah would nurse sons? But now I've given birth to a son when he was old!" NRS 8 The child grew, and was weaned; and Abraham made a great feast on the day that Isaac was weaned. CEB 8 The boy grew and stopped nursing. On the day he stopped nursing, Abraham prepared a huge banquet. NRS 9 But Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, playing with her son Isaac. CEB 9 Sarah saw Hagar's son laughing, the one Hagar the Egyptian had borne to Abraham. NRS 10 So she said to Abraham, "Cast out this slave woman with her son; for the son of this slave woman shall not inherit along with my son Isaac." CEB 10 So she said to Abraham, "Send this servant away with her son! This servant's son won't share the inheritance with my son Isaac." NRS 11 The matter was very distressing to Abraham on account of his son. CEB 11 This upset Abraham terribly because the boy was his son. NRS 12 But God said to Abraham, "Do not be distressed because of the boy and because of your slave woman; whatever Sarah says to you, do as she tells you, for it is through Isaac that offspring shall be named for you. CEB 12 God said to Abraham, "Don't be upset about the boy and your servant. Do everything Sarah tells you to do because your descendants will be traced through Isaac. NRS 13 As for the son of the slave woman, I will make a nation of him also, because he is your offspring." CEB 13 But I will make of your servant's son a great nation too, because he is also your descendant." NRS 14 So Abraham rose early in the morning, and took bread and a skin of water, and gave it to Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, along with the child, and sent her away. And she departed, and wandered about in the wilderness of Beer-sheba. CEB 14 Abraham got up early in the morning, took some bread and a flask of water, and gave it to Hagar. He put the boy in her shoulder sling and sent her away. She left and wandered through the desert near Beer-sheba. NRS 15 When the water in the skin was gone, she cast the child under one of the bushes. CEB 15 Finally the water in the flask ran out, and she put the boy down under one of the desert shrubs. NRS 16 Then she went and sat down opposite him a good way off, about the distance of a bowshot; for she said, "Do not let me look on the death of the child." And as she sat opposite him, she lifted up her voice and wept. CEB 16 She walked away from him about as far as a bow shot and sat down, telling herself, I can't bear to see the boy die. She sat at a distance, cried out in grief, and wept. NRS 17 And God heard the voice of the boy; and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven, and said to her, "What troubles you, Hagar? Do not be afraid; for God has heard the voice of the boy where he is. CEB 17 God heard the boy's cries, and God's messenger called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, "Hagar! What's wrong? Don't be afraid. God has heard the boy's cries over there. NRS 18 Come, lift up the boy and hold him fast with your hand, for I will make a great nation of him." CEB 18 Get up, pick up the boy, and take him by the hand because I will make of him a great nation." NRS 19 Then God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water. She went, and filled the skin with water, and gave the boy a drink. CEB 19 Then God opened her eyes, and she saw a well. She went over, filled the water flask, and gave the boy a drink. NRS 20 God was with the boy, and he grew up; he lived in the wilderness, and became an expert with the bow. CEB 20 God remained with the boy; he grew up, lived in the desert, and became an expert archer. NRS 21 He lived in the wilderness of Paran; and his mother got a wife for him from the land of Egypt. CEB 21 He lived in the Paran desert, and his mother found him an Egyptian wife. NRS 22 At that time Abimelech, with Phicol the commander of his army, said to Abraham, "God is with you in all that you do; CEB 22 At that time Abimelech, and Phicol commander of his forces, said to Abraham, "God is with you in everything that you do. NRS 23 now therefore swear to me here by God that you will not deal falsely with me or with my offspring or with my posterity, but as I have dealt loyally with you, you will deal with me and with the land where you have resided as an alien." CEB 23 So give me your word under God that you won't cheat me, my children, or my descendants. Just as I have treated you fairly, so you must treat me and the land in which you are an immigrant." NRS 24 And Abraham said, "I swear it." CEB 24 Abraham said, "I give you my word. NRS 25 When Abraham complained to Abimelech about a well of water that Abimelech's servants had seized, CEB 25 Then Abraham complained to Abimelech about a well that Abimelech's servants had seized. NRS 26 Abimelech said, "I do not know who has done this; you did not tell me, and I have not heard of it until today." CEB 26 Abimelech said, "I don't know who has done this, and you didn't tell me. I didn't even hear about it until today." NRS 27 So Abraham took sheep and oxen and gave them to Abimelech, and the two men made a covenant. CEB 27 Abraham took flocks and cattle, gave them to Abimelech, and the two of them drew up a treaty. NRS 28 Abraham set apart seven ewe lambs of the flock. CEB 28 Abraham set aside, by themselves, seven female lambs from the flock. NRS 29 And Abimelech said to Abraham, "What is the meaning of these seven ewe lambs that you have set apart?" CEB 29 So Abimelech said to Abraham, "What are these seven lambs you've set apart?" NRS 30 He said, "These seven ewe lambs you shall accept from my hand, in order that you may be a witness for me that I dug this well." CEB 30 Abraham said, "These seven lambs that you take from me will attest that I dug this well." NRS 31 Therefore that place was called Beer-sheba; because there both of them swore an oath. CEB 31 Therefore, the name of that place is Beer-sheba because there they gave each other their word. NRS 32 When they had made a covenant at Beer-sheba, Abimelech, with Phicol the commander of his army, left and returned to the land of the Philistines. CEB 32 After they drew up a treaty at Beer-sheba, Abimelech, and Phicol commander of his forces, returned to the land of the Philistines. NRS 33 Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beer-sheba, and called there on the name of the Lord, the Everlasting God. CEB 33 Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beer-sheba, and he worshipped there in the name of the LORD, El Olam. NRS 34 And Abraham resided as an alien many days in the land of the Philistines. CEB 34 Abraham lived as an immigrant in the Philistines' land for a long time.
