21:1And Jehovah visited Sarah as He had said. And the Lord did to Sarah as He had spoken.
21:2And Sarah conceived and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the time appointed, that which God had spoken with him.
21:3And Abraham called the name of the son who was born to him, whom Sarah had borne to him, Isaac.
21:4And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac, a son of eight days, as God had commanded him.
21:5And Abraham was a son of a hundred years when his son Isaac was born to him.
21:6And Sarah said, God has made laughter for me; all who hear will laugh with me.
21:7And she said, Who would have said to Abraham, Will Sarah suckle sons? For I have borne a son to his old age.
21:8And the child grew and was weaned. And Abraham made a great feast on the day Isaac was weaned.
21:9And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, he whom she had borne to Abraham, mocking.
21:10And she said to Abraham, Drive away this slave-girl and her son, for the son of this slave-girl shall not inherit with my son, with Isaac.
21:11And the thing was very evil in the eyes of Abraham, on account of his son.
21:12And God said to Abraham, Let it not be evil in your eyes because of the boy, and on account of your slave-girl. All that Sarah says to you, listen to her voice, for in Isaac your Seed shall be called.
21:13And also I will make a nation of the son of the slave-girl, for he is your seed.
21:14And Abraham started up early in the morning and took bread and a skin of water and gave them to Hagar, putting them on her shoulder, and the child, and sent her away. And she left and wandered in the wilderness of Beersheba.
21:15And the water from the skin was finished, and she put the boy under one of the shrubs.
21:16And she went and sat down opposite him, about a bow shot away. For she said, let me not see the death of the boy. And she sat opposite and raised her voice and wept.
21:17And God heard the voice of the young boy. And the angel of God called to Hagar out of the heavens. And He said to her, What ails you, Hagar? Do not fear, for God has heard the voice of the boy, there where he is .
21:18Rise up, lift up the boy and make your hand strong on him, for I will make of him a great nation.
21:19And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water. And she went and filled the skin with water, and gave drink to the young boy.
21:20And God was with the boy. And he grew up. And he lived in the wilderness and became a great archer.
21:21And he lived in the wilderness of Paran. And his mother took a wife for him out of the land of Egypt.
21:22And it happened at that time Abimelech and Phicol, the general of his army, spoke to Abraham, saying, God is with you in all that you do.
21:23And now swear to me here by God, that you will not lie to me, and to my son, and to my heir, according to the kindness which I have sworn to you. Do to me and to the land in which you have lived.
21:24And Abraham said, I will swear.
21:25And Abraham reproved Abimelech on account of a well of water which the slaves of Abimelech had seized.
21:26And Abimelech said, I do not know who has done this thing; and also you have not told me; even I have not heard, except today.
21:27And Abraham took sheep and oxen and gave to Abimelech, and both of them cut a covenant.
21:28And Abraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by themselves.
21:29And Abimelech said to Abraham, What are these seven ewe lambs which you have set by themselves?
21:30And he said, You shall take the seven ewe lambs from my hand so that it may become for me a witness that I dug this well.
21:31On account of this that place is called The Well of Sheba, because the two of them swore there.
21:32And they cut a covenant in Beersheba. And Abimelech and Phicol, the general of his army, rose up; and they returned to the land of the Philistines.
21:33And he planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba, and there he called on the name of Jehovah the everlasting God.
21:34And Abraham lived in the land of the Philistines many days.
