21:1The Lord visited Sara as he had promised, and did vnto her accordyng as he had spoke
21:2For Sara conceaued, and bare Abraham a sonne in his olde age, euen the same season whiche the Lorde had appoynted
21:3And Abraham called his sonnes name that was borne vnto him, whiche Sara bare hym, Isahac
21:4And Abraham circumcised his sonne Isahac, when he was eyght dayes olde, as God commaunded him
21:5And Abraham was an hundreth yere olde, when his sonne Isahac was borne vnto him
21:6But Sara sayde: God hath made me to reioyce, so that all that heare, wyll ioy with me
21:7She sayd also: who would haue sayde vnto Abraham, that Sara shoulde haue geuen chyldren sucke? for I haue borne him a sonne in his olde age
21:8The chylde grewe, and was weaned, and Abraham made a great feast the same day that Isahac was weaned
21:9Sara saw also the sonne of Hagar the Egyptian, whiche she had borne vnto Abraham, to be a mocker
21:10Wherfore she sayd vnto Abraham: cast out this bond woman, & her sonne: for the sonne of this bonde woman, shal not be heyre with my sonne Isahac
21:11And this saying was very greeuous in Abrahams sight, because of his sonne
21:12And God sayde vnto Abraham, let it not be greeuous in thy sight, because of the lad and of thy bonde woman: In al that Sara hath said vnto thee, heare her voyce, for in Isahac shall thy seede be called
21:13Moreouer, of the sonne of the bonde woman wyll I make a nation, because he is thy seede
21:14And so Abraham rose vp early in the mornyng, and tooke bread, and a bottel of water, and gaue it vnto Hagar, puttyng it on her shoulder, and the lad also, and sent her away: who departing, wandered vp and downe in the wildernesse of Beer seba
21:15And the water was spent in the bottell, and she cast the lad vnder some one of the trees
21:16And went, and sate on the other syde a great way, as it were a bowe shote of: for she sayd, I wyll not see the death of the chylde. And she sitting downe on the other side, lyft vp her voyce & wept
21:17And God hearde the voyce of the lad, and the angell of God called to Hagar out of heauen, and said vnto her, what ayleth thee Hagar? feare not: for God hath hearde the voyce of the lad where he lyeth
21:18Aryse and lyft vp the lad, and take him in thyne hande, for I wyll make of hym a great people
21:19And God opened her eyes, and she sawe a well of water, and she went and filled the bottell with water, and gaue the lad drinke
21:20And God was with the lad, and he grewe, and dwelt in the wyldernesse, and became a principall archer
21:21And he dwelt in the wyldernesse of Paran, and his mother got hym a wyfe out of the lande of Egypt
21:22And at the same season, Abimelech and Phicol his chiefe captayne spake vnto Abraham, saying, God is with thee in all that thou doest
21:23And nowe therefore, sweare vnto me euen here by God, that thou wylt not hurt me, nor my chyldren, nor my chyldrens children: but that thou shalt deale with me and the countrey where thou hast ben a straunger, accordyng vnto the kyndnesse that I haue shewed thee
21:24And Abraham saide, I will sweare
21:25And Abraham rebuked Abimelech for a wel of water, which Abimeleches seruauntes had violently taken away
21:26And Abimelech said, I wote not who hath done this thing: also thou toldest me not, neyther hearde I of it but this day
21:27And Abraham toke sheepe and Oxen, and gaue them vnto Abimelech: & they made both of them a leage together
21:28And Abraham set seuen ewe lambes by them selues
21:29And Abimelech sayd vnto Abraham: what meane these seuen ewe lambes whiche thou hast set by them selues
21:30He aunswered: for these seuen ewe lambes shalt thou take of my hande, that they may be a wytnesse vnto me, that I haue digged this well
21:31Wherefore the place is called Beer seba, because that there they sware both of them
21:32Thus made they a leage together at Beer seba: and Abimelech and Phicol his chiefe captayne rose vp, and turned agayne into the lande of the Philistines
21:33And Abraham planted a wood in Beer seba, and called there on the name of the Lorde the euerlasting God
21:34And Abraham soiourned in the Philistines lande a long season

Bishops Bible 1568

The Bishops' Bible was produced under the authority of the established Church of England in 1568. It was substantially revised in 1572, and the 1602 edition was prescribed as the base text for the King James Bible completed in 1611. The thorough Calvinism of the Geneva Bible offended the Church of England, to which almost all of its bishops subscribed. They associated Calvinism with Presbyterianism, which sought to replace government of the church by bishops with government by lay elders. However, they were aware that the Great Bible of 1539 , which was the only version then legally authorized for use in Anglican worship, was severely deficient, in that much of the Old Testament and Apocrypha was translated from the Latin Vulgate, rather than from the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. In an attempt to replace the objectionable Geneva translation, they circulated one of their own, which became known as the Bishops' Bible.
