Genesis 21


21:1 And the LORD visited Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did
 to Sarah as he had spoken.
21:2 For Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age,
 at the set time of which God had spoken to him.
21:3 And Abraham called the name of his son that was born to
 him, whom Sarah bore to him, Isaac.
21:4 And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac, being eight days
 old, as God had commanded him.
21:5 And Abraham was a hundred years old, when his son Isaac was
 born to him.
21:6 And Sarah said, God hath made me to laugh, [so that] all
 that hear will laugh with me.
21:7 And she said, Who would have said to Abraham, that Sarah
 shall nurse children? for I have borne him a son in his old
 age.
21:8 And the child grew, and was weaned: and Abraham made a
 great feast the day that Isaac was weaned.
21:9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had
 borne to Abraham, mocking.
21:10 Wherefore, she said to Abraham, Cast out this bond-woman,
 and her son: for the son of this bond-woman shall not be heir
 with my son, [even] with Isaac.
21:11 And the thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight,
 because of his son.
21:12 And God said to Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy
 sight, because of the lad, and because of thy bond-woman; in
 all that Sarah hath said to thee, hearken to her voice: for in
 Isaac shall thy seed be called.
21:13 And also of the son of the bond-woman will I make a
 nation, because he [is] thy seed.
21:14 And Abraham rose early in the morning, and took bread, and
 a bottle of water, and gave [it] to Hagar (putting [it] on her
 shoulder) and the child, and sent her away; and she departed,
 and wandered in the wilderness of Beer-sheba.
21:15 And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the
 child under one of the shrubs.
21:16 And she went, and sat her down over against [him], a good
 way off, as it were a bow-shot: for she said, Let me not see
 the death of the child. And she sat over against [him], and
 raised her voice, and wept.
21:17 And God heard the voice of the lad: and the angel of God
 called to Hagar out of heaven, and said to her, What aileth
 thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad
 where he [is].
21:18 Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thy hand: for I
 will make him a great nation.
21:19 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water: and
 she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad
 drink.
21:20 And God was with the lad; and he grew, and dwelt in the
 wilderness, and became an archer.
21:21 And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran: and his mother
 took for him a wife out of the land of Egypt.
21:22 And it came to pass at that time, that Abimelech, and
 Phichol the chief captain of his host, spoke to Abraham,
 saying, God [is] with thee in all that thou doest:
21:23 Now therefore swear to me here by God, that thou wilt not
 deal falsely with me, nor with my son, nor with my son's son:
 [but] according to the kindness that I have done to thee, thou
 shalt do to me, and to the land in which thou hast sojourned.
21:24 And Abraham said, I will swear.
21:25 And Abraham reproved Abimelech, because of a well of
 water, which Abimelech's servants had violently taken away.
21:26 And Abimelech said, I know not who hath done this thing:
 neither didst thou tell me, neither yet have I heard [of it],
 but to-day.
21:27 And Abraham took sheep and oxen, and gave them to
 Abimelech: and both of them made a covenant.
21:28 And Abraham set seven ewe-lambs of the flock by
 themselves.
21:29 And Abimelech said to Abraham, What [mean] these seven
 ewe-lambs, which thou hast set by themselves?
21:30 And he said, For [these] seven ewe-lambs shalt thou take
 from my hand, that they may be a witness to me, that I have
 digged this well.
21:31 Wherefore he called that place Beer-sheba: because there
 they swore both of them.
21:32 Thus they made a covenant at Beer-sheba: Then Abimelech
 arose, and Phichol the chief captain of his host, and they
 returned into the land of the Philistines.
21:33 And [Abraham] planted a grove in Beer-sheba, and called
 there on the name of the LORD, the everlasting God.
21:34 And Abraham sojourned in the land of the Philistines many
 days.
