Isaac is born.
Genesis 21:1 Now, Yahweh, visited Sarah, as he had said,And Yahweh did for Sarah, as he had spoken. Genesis 21:2 So, Sarah, conceived and bare, to Abraham, a son, for his old age,at the set time, of which God had spoken with him. Genesis 21:3 And Abraham called the name of his son that was born to him, whom, Sarah, bare to him, Isaac.
He is circumcised.
Genesis 21:4 And Abraham circumcised Isaac his son, when eight days old,as God commanded him. Genesis 21:5 Now Abraham was a hundred years old,when Isaac his son was born to him.
Genesis 21:6 And Sarah said, A laughing, hath God made for me,Everyone that heareth, will laugh with me! Genesis 21:7 And she saidWho would have announced to Abraham, Sarah hath suckled children? yet have I borne a son, for his old age! Genesis 21:8 And the child grew, and was weaned,and Abraham made a great banquet, on the day of the weaning of Isaac.
Hagar and Ishmael are cast forth.
Genesis 21:9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian woman, whom she had borne to Abraham, laughing! Genesis 21:10 So she said to Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her son,for the son of this bondwoman must not inherit, with my son, with Isaac. Genesis 21:11 And the word was very grievous in the eyes of Abraham,on account of his son.
Genesis 21:12 And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thine eyes concerning the boy and concerning thy bondwoman, In all that Sarah may say unto thee, hearken to her voice,For, in Isaac, shall there be called to theea seed. Genesis 21:13 Yet, even the son of the bondwoman, will I appoint to become, a nation, because, thy seed, he is. Genesis 21:14 So Abraham rose up early in the morningand took bread and a skin of water, and gave unto Hagar,putting them on her shoulder, and the child, and sent her forth,so she went her way and wandered, in the desert of Beer-sheba.
Hagar in distress.
Genesis 21:15 And the water out of the skin was spent,so she cast the child under one of the shrubs; Genesis 21:16 and went and sat her down over against him, at a distance like as of such as draw the bow, for she said, Let me not look upon the death of the child,So she sat down over against him, and the boy lifted up his voice, and wept.
The angel comforteth her.
Genesis 21:17 And God heard the voice of the boy, and a messenger of God called unto Hagar out of the heavens, and said to her, What aileth thee, Hagar? Do not fear, for God hath hearkened unto the voice of the boy, where he is. Genesis 21:18 Arise, lift up the boy, and hold him up with thy hand,for, a great nation, will I make him. Genesis 21:19 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water,and went and filled the skin with water, and gave drink unto the boy. Genesis 21:20 And it came to pass, that God was with the boy, and he grew,and dwelt in the desert, and he became, as he grew up, an archer. Genesis 21:21 And he dwelt in the desert 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, with Phicol chieftain of his host, spake unto Abraham, saying,God, is with thee in all that, thou, art doing. Genesis 21:23 Now, therefore, swear to me by God, here, that thou wilt not deal falsely by me, nor by mine offspring, nor by my descendants,according to the lovingkindness wherewith I have dealt with thee, shalt thou deal with me, and with the land wherein thou hast sojourned. Genesis 21:24 And Abraham said, I, will swear. Genesis 21:25 But Abraham reproved Abimelech,on account of the well of water, which the servants of Abimelech had seized. Genesis 21:26 And Abimelech said, I know not, who hath done this thing,nor hast, even thou, ever told me, nor have, even I, ever heard, save today. Genesis 21:27 And Abraham took sheep and oxen, and gave to Abimelech,and they two solemnised a covenant. Genesis 21:28 So then Abraham set seven young sheep of the flock, by themselves. Genesis 21:29 And Abimelech said unto Abraham, What, then, mean these seven young sheep, here, which thou hast set by themselves? Genesis 21:30 And he said, The seven young sheep, shalt thou take at my hand,that they may serve as my witness, that I digged this well. Genesis 21:31 On this account, was the name of that place called Beer-sheba [="oath well"],because, there, had they two sworn. Genesis 21:32 And when they had solemnised a covenant in Beer-sheba,then arose Abimelech, with Phicol chief of his host, and returned unto the land of the Philistines.
Genesis 21:33 Then planted he a tamarisk tree in Beer-sheba,and called there on the name of Yahweh, the age-abiding GOD. Genesis 21:34 So Abraham sojourned in the land of the Philistines many days.
