Genesis 21

MLV(i) 1 And Jehovah visited Sarah as he had said and Jehovah did to Sarah as he had spoken. 2 And Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. 3 And Abraham called the name of his son who was born to him, Isaac, whom Sarah bore to him. 4 And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac when he was eight days old, as God had commanded him. 5 And Abraham was a hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born to him.
6 And Sarah said, God has made me to laugh. Everyone who hears will laugh with me. 7 And she said, Who would have said to Abraham, that Sarah should nurse sons? For I have borne him a son in his old age.

8 And the child grew and was weaned. And Abraham made a great feast on the day that Isaac was weaned. 9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, mocking. 10 Therefore she said to Abraham, Cast out this handmaid and her son. For the son of this handmaid will not be heir with my son, that is with Isaac. 11 And the thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight on account of his son.
12 And God said to Abraham, Do not let it be grievous in your sight because of the lad and because of your handmaid. In all that Sarah says to you, listen to her voice. For in Isaac will your seed be called. 13 And I will also make a nation of the son of the handmaid, because he is your seed.
14 And Abraham rose up early in the morning and took bread and a skin-container of water and gave them to Hagar, putting them on her shoulder and the child and sent her away. And she departed and wandered in the wilderness of Beer-sheba. 15 And the water in the skin-container was spent and she cast the child under one of the shrubs. 16 And she went and sat herself down opposite him a good way off, as if it was a bowshot away. For she said, Do not let me look upon the death of the child. And she sat opposite him and lifted up her voice and wept.
17 And God heard the voice of the lad. And the messenger of God called to Hagar out of heaven and said to her, What troubles you, Hagar? Do not fear, God has heard the voice of the lad where he is. 18 Arise, lift up the lad and hold him in your hand, because I will make him a great nation. 19 And God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water. And she went and filled the skin-container with water and gave the lad a drink.
20 And God was with the lad and he grew. And he dwelt in the wilderness and became an archer as he grew up. 21 And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran. And his mother took a wife out of the land of Egypt for him.
22 And it happened at that time, that Abimelech and Phicol the captain of his army spoke to Abraham, saying, God is with you in all that you do. 23 Now therefore swear to me here by God that you will not deal falsely with me, nor with my son, nor with my son's son. But according to the kindness that I have done to you, you will do to me and to the land in which you have traveled. 24 And Abraham said, I will swear.
25 And Abraham reproved Abimelech because of the well of water which Abimelech's servants had violently taken away. 26 And Abimelech said, I do not know who has done this thing, neither did you tell me, nor yet did I hear of it, except today.
27 And Abraham took sheep and oxen and gave them to Abimelech. And the two made a covenant. 28 And Abraham set seven ewe-lambs of the flock by themselves. 29 And Abimelech said to Abraham, What do these seven ewe-lambs mean which you have set by themselves? 30 And he said, For these seven ewe-lambs you will take from my hand, that it may be a witness to me, that I have dug this well. 31 Therefore he called that place Beer-sheba, because both of them swore there.
32 So they cut a covenant at Beer-sheba. And Abimelech rose up and Phicol the captain of his army and they returned into the land of the Philistines. 33 And Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beer-sheba and called on the name of Jehovah, the Everlasting God, there. 34 And Abraham traveled in the land of the Philistines many days.
