Covenant and Circumcision1 [3was 1And 2Abram 5years old 4ninety-nine], and the lord appeared to Abram, and he said to him, I am your God, you are well-pleasing before me -- then be blameless! 2 And I will establish my covenant between me and between you, and I will multiply you exceedingly. 3 And Abram fell upon his face. And [2spoke 3to him 1God], saying, 4 And behold, my covenant is with you, and you will be father of a multitude of nations. 5 And [2will not 3be called 4any longer 1your name], Abram; but [2will be 1your name] Abraham, for [3father 4of many 5nations 1I have appointed 2you]. 6 And I will increase you exceedingly exceedingly. And I will establish you for nations; and kings [2from 3you 1will come forth]. 7 And I will establish my covenant between me and between you, and between your seed after you, unto their generations, for [2covenant 1an eternal], to be your God, and with your seed after you. 8 And I will give to you and to your seed after you the land which you sojourn, all the land of Canaan for [2possession 1an eternal]. And I myself will be to them for God. 9 And God said to Abraham, You also [2my covenant 1shall observe], and your seed after you for their generations. 10 And this is the covenant which you shall observe between me and you, and between your seed after you. [4shall be circumcised 3to you 1Every 2male]. 11 And you shall be circumcised of the flesh of your foreskin. And it will be for a sign of covenant between me and you. 12 And a male child eight days old shall be circumcised by you -- every male into your generations; the native-born servant of your house, and the one bought with silver, from every son of an alien who is not from your seed. 13 By circumcision he shall be circumcised -- the native-born servant of your house, and the one bought with silver. And [2will be 1my covenant] upon your flesh for [2covenant 1an eternal]. 14 And the uncircumcised male who shall not be circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin in the [2day 1eighth], [2shall be utterly destroyed 1that soul] from its race, for my covenant he effaced. 15 And God said to Abraham, Sarai your wife -- [2shall not 3be called 1her name] Sarai, but, Sarah will be her name.
The Promise of a Son16 And I will bless her, and give to you from her a child. And I will bless it, and it will be for nations; and kings of nations [2from 3him 1will be]. 17 And Abraham fell upon his face and laughed. And he said in his mind, saying, Shall to the hundred year old be a son? And shall Sarah at ninety years bear? 18 [3said 1And 2Abraham] to God, Ishmael, this one, let him live before you! 19 [3said 1And 2God] to Abraham, Yes, behold, Sarah your wife will bear to you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; and I will establish my covenant with him, for [2covenant 1an eternal], and to his seed after him. 20 And concerning Ishmael, behold, I heeded you. And behold, I shall bless him, and I will increase him, and I will multiply him exceedingly. Twelve nations he will procreate, and I will make him for [2nation 1a great]. 21 But my covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom [2shall bear 3to you 1Sarah] at this time in [2year 1another]. 22 And he completed speaking to him. And God ascended from Abraham. 23 And Abraham took Ishmael, his son, and all his native-born servants, and all the ones bought with silver, and every male of the men in the house of Abraham. And he circumcised their foreskins in [2time 3of the 4day 1that], as [2spoke 3to him 1God]. 24 And Abraham [2ninety-nine 1was] years old when he circumcised the flesh of his foreskin. 25 And Ishmael his son was [2years old 1thirteen] when he circumcised the flesh of his foreskin. 26 In [2time 3of the 4day 1that] Abraham was circumcised, and Ishmael his son, 27 and all the males of his house, and the native-born servants, and the ones bought with silver from foreign nations.
