Genesis 21

Isaac is born.

Genesis 21:1 And Jehovah visited Sarah as he had said, and Jehovah did to Sarah as he had spoken. Genesis 21:2 And Sarah conceived, and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the appointed time of which God had spoken to him. Genesis 21:3 And Abraham called the name of his son who was born to him, whom Sarah bore to him, Isaac.

He is circumcised.

Genesis 21:4 And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac, being eight days old, as God had commanded him. Genesis 21:5 And Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him.

Sarah's joy.

Genesis 21:6 And Sarah said, God has made me laugh: all that hear will laugh with me. Genesis 21:7 And she said, Who would have said to Abraham, Sarah will suckle children? For I have borne [him] a son in his old age. Genesis 21:8 And the child grew, and was weaned. And Abraham made a great feast on the day that Isaac was weaned.

Hagar and Ishmael are cast forth.

Genesis 21:9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, mocking. Genesis 21:10 And she said to Abraham, Cast out this handmaid and her son; for the son of this handmaid shall not inherit with my son—with Isaac. Genesis 21:11 And the thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight because of his son.

Genesis 21:12 And God said to Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad and because of thy handmaid: [in] all that Sarah hath said to thee hearken to her voice, for in Isaac shall a seed be called to thee. Genesis 21:13 But also the son of the handmaid will I make a nation, because he is thy seed. Genesis 21:14 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and a flask of water, and gave [it] to Hagar, putting [it] on her shoulder—and the child, and sent her away. And she departed, and wandered about in the wilderness of Beer-sheba.

Hagar in distress.

Genesis 21:15 And the water was exhausted from the flask; and she cast the child under one of the shrubs, Genesis 21:16 and she went and sat down over against [him], a bow-shot off; for she said, Let me not behold the death of the child. And she sat over against [him], and lifted up her voice and wept.

The angel comforteth her.

Genesis 21:17 And God heard the voice of the lad. And the Angel of God called to Hagar from the heavens, and said to her, What [aileth] thee, Hagar? Fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad there, where he is. Genesis 21:18 Arise, take the lad, and hold him in thy hand; for I will make of him a great nation. Genesis 21:19 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went and filled the flask with water, and gave the lad drink. Genesis 21:20 And God was with the lad, and he grew; and he dwelt in the wilderness, and became an archer. Genesis 21:21 And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran. And his mother took him a wife out of the land of Egypt.

Abimelech's covenant with Abraham at Beer-sheba.

Genesis 21:22 And it came to pass at that time that Abimelech, and Phichol the captain of his host, spoke to Abraham, saying, God is with thee in all that thou doest. Genesis 21:23 And now swear to me here by God that thou wilt not deal deceitfully with me, nor with my son, nor with my grandson. According to the kindness that I have done to thee, thou shalt do to me, and to the land in which thou sojournest. Genesis 21:24 And Abraham said, I will swear. Genesis 21:25 And Abraham reproved Abimelech because of a well of water that Abimelech's servants had violently taken away. Genesis 21:26 And Abimelech said, I do not know who has done this, neither hast thou told me [of it], neither have I heard [of it] but to-day. Genesis 21:27 And Abraham took sheep and oxen, and gave them to Abimelech; and both of them made a covenant. Genesis 21:28 And Abraham set seven ewe-lambs of the flock by themselves. Genesis 21:29 And Abimelech said to Abraham, What [mean] these seven ewe-lambs, these which thou hast set by themselves? Genesis 21:30 And he said, That thou take the seven ewe-lambs of my hand, that they may be a witness to me that I have dug this well. Genesis 21:31 Therefore he called that place Beer-sheba, because there they had sworn, both of them. Genesis 21:32 And they made a covenant at Beer-sheba. And Abimelech rose up, and Phichol the captain of his host, and returned into the land of the Philistines.

Genesis 21:33 And [Abraham] planted a tamarisk in Beer-sheba, and called there on the name of Jehovah, the Eternal *God. Genesis 21:34 And Abraham sojourned in the Philistines' land many days.
