YLT(i) 23 and now, swear to me by God here: thou dost not lie to me, or to my continuator, or to my successor; according to the kindness which I have done with thee thou dost with me, and with the land in which thou hast sojourned.' 24 And Abraham saith, `I—I do swear.' 25 And Abraham reasoned with Abimelech concerning the matter of a well of water which Abimelech's servants have taken violently away, 26 and Abimelech saith, `I have not known who hath done this thing, and even thou didst not declare to me, and I also, I have not heard save to-day.' 27 And Abraham taketh sheep and oxen, and giveth to Abimelech, and they make, both of them, a covenant; 28 and Abraham setteth seven Lambs of the flock by themselves. 29 And Abimelech saith unto Abraham, `What are they—these seven lambs which thou hast set by themselves?' 30 And he saith, `For—the seven lambs thou dost accept from my hand, so that it becometh a witness for me that I have digged this well;' 31 therefore hath he called that place `Beer-Sheba,' for there have both of them sworn.
