Genesis 12:1--22:24

Now the LORD
<03068>
had said
<0559> (8799)
unto Abram
<087>_,
Get thee out
<03212> (8798)
of thy country
<0776>_,
and from thy kindred
<04138>_,
and from thy father's
<01>
house
<01004>_,
unto a land
<0776>
that I will shew
<07200> (8686)
thee:
And I will make of thee
<06213> (8799)
a great
<01419>
nation
<01471>_,
and I will bless
<01288> (8762)
thee, and make
<01431> (0)
thy name
<08034>
great
<01431> (8762)_;
and thou shalt be a blessing
<01293>_:
And I will bless
<01288> (8762)
them that bless
<01288> (8764)
thee, and curse
<0779> (8799)
him that curseth
<07043> (8764)
thee: and in thee shall all families
<04940>
of the earth
<0127>
be blessed
<01288> (8738)_.
So Abram
<087>
departed
<03212> (8799)_,
as the LORD
<03068>
had spoken
<01696> (8765)
unto him; and Lot
<03876>
went
<03212> (8799)
with him: and Abram
<087>
[was] seventy
<07657> <08141>
and five
<02568>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>
when he departed
<03318> (8800)
out of Haran
<02771>_.
And Abram
<087>
took
<03947> (8799)
Sarai
<08297>
his wife
<0802>_,
and Lot
<03876>
his brother's
<0251>
son
<01121>_,
and all their substance
<07399>
that they had gathered
<07408> (8804)_,
and the souls
<05315>
that they had gotten
<06213> (8804)
in Haran
<02771>_;
and they went forth
<03318> (8799)
to go
<03212> (8800)
into the land
<0776>
of Canaan
<03667>_;
and into the land
<0776>
of Canaan
<03667>
they came
<0935> (8799)_.
And Abram
<087>
passed through
<05674> (8799)
the land
<0776>
unto the place
<04725>
of Sichem
<07927>_,
unto the plain
<0436>
of Moreh
<04176>_.
And the Canaanite
<03669>
[was] then
<0227>
in the land
<0776>_.
{plain: Heb. plains}
And the LORD
<03068>
appeared
<07200> (8735)
unto Abram
<087>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Unto thy seed
<02233>
will I give
<05414> (8799)
this
<02063>
land
<0776>_:
and there builded
<01129> (8799)
he an altar
<04196>
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
who appeared
<07200> (8737)
unto him.
And he removed
<06275> (8686)
from thence unto a mountain
<02022>
on the east
<06924>
of Bethel
<01008>_,
and pitched
<05186> (8799)
his tent
<0168>_,
[having] Bethel
<01008>
on the west
<03220>_,
and Hai
<05857>
on the east
<06924>_:
and there he builded
<01129> (8799)
an altar
<04196>
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
and called
<07121> (8799)
upon the name
<08034>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
And Abram
<087>
journeyed
<05265> (8799)_,
going on
<01980> (8800)
still
<05265> (8800)
toward the south
<05045>_.
{going...: Heb. in going and journeying}
And there was a famine
<07458>
in the land
<0776>_:
and Abram
<087>
went down
<03381> (8799)
into Egypt
<04714>
to sojourn
<01481> (8800)
there; for the famine
<07458>
[was] grievous
<03515>
in the land
<0776>_.
And it came to pass, when
<0834>
he was come near
<07126> (8689)
to enter
<0935> (8800)
into Egypt
<04714>_,
that he said
<0559> (8799)
unto Sarai
<08297>
his wife
<0802>_,
Behold
<02009>
now
<04994>_,
I know
<03045> (8804)
that thou [art] a fair
<03303>
woman
<0802>
to look upon
<04758>_:
Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Egyptians
<04713>
shall see
<07200> (8799)
thee, that they shall say
<0559> (8804)_,
This [is] his wife
<0802>_:
and they will kill
<02026> (8804)
me, but they will save thee alive
<02421> (8762)_.
Say
<0559> (8798)_,
I pray thee
<04994>_,
thou [art] my sister
<0269>_:
that
<04616>
it may be well
<03190> (8799)
with me for thy sake; and my soul
<05315>
shall live
<02421> (8804)
because of thee
<01558>_.
And it came to pass, that, when Abram
<087>
was come
<0935> (8800)
into Egypt
<04714>_,
the Egyptians
<04713>
beheld
<07200> (8799)
the woman
<0802>
that she [was] very
<03966>
fair
<03303>_.
The princes
<08269>
also of Pharaoh
<06547>
saw
<07200> (8799)
her, and commended
<01984> (8762)
her before
<0413>
Pharaoh
<06547>_:
and the woman
<0802>
was taken
<03947> (8714)
into Pharaoh's
<06547>
house
<01004>_.
And he entreated
<03190> (0)
Abram
<087>
well
<03190> (8689)
for her sake: and he had sheep
<06629>_,
and oxen
<01241>_,
and he asses
<02543>_,
and menservants
<05650>_,
and maidservants
<08198>_,
and she asses
<0860>_,
and camels
<01581>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
plagued
<05060> (8762)
Pharaoh
<06547>
and his house
<01004>
with great
<01419>
plagues
<05061>
because of
<01697>
Sarai
<08297>
Abram's
<087>
wife
<0802>_.
And Pharaoh
<06547>
called
<07121> (8799)
Abram
<087>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
What [is] this [that] thou hast done
<06213> (8804)
unto me? why didst thou not tell
<05046> (8689)
me that she [was] thy wife
<0802>_?
Why saidst thou
<0559> (8804)_,
She [is] my sister
<0269>_?
so I might have taken
<03947> (8799)
her to me to wife
<0802>_:
now therefore behold thy wife
<0802>_,
take
<03947> (8798)
[her], and go thy way
<03212> (8798)_.
And Pharaoh
<06547>
commanded
<06680> (8762)
[his] men
<0582>
concerning him: and they sent him away
<07971> (8762)_,
and his wife
<0802>_,
and all that he had.
And Abram
<087>
went up
<05927> (8799)
out of Egypt
<04714>_,
he, and his wife
<0802>_,
and all that he had, and Lot
<03876>
with him, into the south
<05045>_.
And Abram
<087>
[was] very
<03966>
rich
<03513> (8804)
in cattle
<04735>_,
in silver
<03701>_,
and in gold
<02091>_.
And he went
<03212> (8799)
on his journeys
<04550>
from the south
<05045>
even to Bethel
<01008>_,
unto the place
<04725>
where his tent
<0168>
had been
<01961> (8804)
at the beginning
<08462>_,
between Bethel
<01008>
and Hai
<05857>_;
Unto the place
<04725>
of the altar
<04196>_,
which he had made
<06213> (8804)
there at the first
<07223>_:
and there Abram
<087>
called
<07121> (8799)
on the name
<08034>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
And Lot
<03876>
also, which went
<01980> (8802)
with
<0854>
Abram
<087>_,
had flocks
<06629>_,
and herds
<01241>_,
and tents
<0168>_.
And the land
<0776>
was not able to bear
<05375> (8804)
them, that they might dwell
<03427> (8800)
together
<03162>_:
for their substance
<07399>
was great
<07227>_,
so that they could
<03201> (8804)
not dwell
<03427> (8800)
together
<03162>_.
And there was a strife
<07379>
between the herdmen
<07462> (8802)
of Abram's
<087>
cattle
<04735>
and the herdmen
<07462> (8802)
of Lot's
<03876>
cattle
<04735>_:
and the Canaanite
<03669>
and the Perizzite
<06522>
dwelled
<03427> (8802)
then in the land
<0776>_.
And Abram
<087>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Lot
<03876>_,
Let there be
<01961> (8799)
no
<0408>
strife
<04808>_,
I pray thee, between me and thee, and between my herdmen
<07462> (8802)
and thy herdmen
<07462> (8802)_;
for we
<0582>
[be] brethren
<0251>_.
{brethren: Heb. men brethren}
[Is] not the whole land
<0776>
before thee
<06440>_?
separate thyself
<06504> (8734)_,
I pray thee, from me: if [thou wilt take] the left hand
<08040>_,
then I will go to the right
<03231> (8686)_;
or if [thou depart] to the right hand
<03225>_,
then I will go to the left
<08041> (8686)_.
And Lot
<03876>
lifted up
<05375> (8799)
his eyes
<05869>_,
and beheld
<07200> (8799)
all the plain
<03603>
of Jordan
<03383>_,
that it [was] well watered
<04945>
every where, before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>
destroyed
<07843> (8763)
Sodom
<05467>
and Gomorrah
<06017>_,
[even] as the garden
<01588>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
like the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_,
as thou comest
<0935> (8800)
unto Zoar
<06820>_.
Then Lot
<03876>
chose
<0977> (8799)
him all the plain
<03603>
of Jordan
<03383>_;
and Lot
<03876>
journeyed
<05265> (8799)
east
<06924>_:
and they separated themselves
<06504> (8735)
the one
<0376>
from the other
<0251>_.
Abram
<087>
dwelled
<03427> (8804)
in the land
<0776>
of Canaan
<03667>_,
and Lot
<03876>
dwelled
<03427> (8804)
in the cities
<05892>
of the plain
<03603>_,
and pitched [his] tent
<0167> (8799)
toward
<05704>
Sodom
<05467>_.
But the men
<0582>
of Sodom
<05467>
[were] wicked
<07451>
and sinners
<02400>
before the LORD
<03068>
exceedingly
<03966>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8804)
unto Abram
<087>_,
after
<0310>
that Lot
<03876>
was separated
<06504> (8736)
from him, Lift up
<05375> (8798)
now thine eyes
<05869>_,
and look
<07200> (8798)
from the place
<04725>
where thou art northward
<06828>_,
and southward
<05045>_,
and eastward
<06924>_,
and westward
<03220>_:
For all the land
<0776>
which thou seest
<07200> (8802)_,
to thee will I give it
<05414> (8799)_,
and to thy seed
<02233>
for
<05704>
ever
<05769>_.
And I will make
<07760> (8804)
thy seed
<02233>
as the dust
<06083>
of the earth
<0776>_:
so that
<0834>
if a man
<0376>
can
<03201> (8799)
number
<04487> (8800)
the dust
<06083>
of the earth
<0776>_,
[then] shall thy seed
<02233>
also be numbered
<04487> (8735)_.
Arise
<06965> (8798)_,
walk
<01980> (8690)
through the land
<0776>
in the length
<0753>
of it and in the breadth
<07341>
of it; for I will give
<05414> (8799)
it unto thee.
Then Abram
<087>
removed [his] tent
<0167> (8799)_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
and dwelt
<03427> (8799)
in the plain
<0436>
of Mamre
<04471>_,
which [is] in Hebron
<02275>_,
and built
<01129> (8799)
there an altar
<04196>
unto the LORD
<03068>_.
{plain: Heb. plains}
And it came to pass in the days
<03117>
of Amraphel
<0569>
king
<04428>
of Shinar
<08152>_,
Arioch
<0746>
king
<04428>
of Ellasar
<0495>_,
Chedorlaomer
<03540>
king
<04428>
of Elam
<05867>_,
and Tidal
<08413>
king
<04428>
of nations
<01471>_;
[That these] made
<06213> (8804)
war
<04421>
with
<0854>
Bera
<01298>
king
<04428>
of Sodom
<05467>_,
and with Birsha
<01306>
king
<04428>
of Gomorrah
<06017>_,
Shinab
<08134>
king
<04428>
of Admah
<0126>_,
and Shemeber
<08038>
king
<04428>
of Zeboiim
<06636>_,
and the king
<04428>
of Bela
<01106>_,
which is
<01931>
Zoar
<06820>_.
All these were joined together
<02266> (8804)
in the vale
<06010>
of Siddim
<07708>_,
which
<01931>
is the salt
<04417>
sea
<03220>_.
Twelve
<06240> <08147>
years
<08141>
they served
<05647> (8804) <0853>
Chedorlaomer
<03540>_,
and in the thirteenth
<07969> <06240>
year
<08141>
they rebelled
<04775> (8804)_.
And in the fourteenth
<06240> <0702>
year
<08141>
came
<0935> (8804)
Chedorlaomer
<03540>_,
and the kings
<04428>
that [were] with him, and smote
<05221> (8686)
the Rephaims
<07497>
in Ashteroth Karnaim
<06255>_,
and the Zuzims
<02104>
in Ham
<01990>_,
and the Emims
<0368>
in Shaveh Kiriathaim
<07741>_,
{Shaveh...: or, The plain of Kiriathaim}
And the Horites
<02752>
in their mount
<02042>
Seir
<08165>_,
unto Elparan
<0364>_,
which [is] by
<05921>
the wilderness
<04057>_.
{Elparan: or, The plain of Paran}
And they returned
<07725> (8799)_,
and came
<0935> (8799)
to
<0413>
Enmishpat
<05880>_,
which [is] Kadesh
<06946>_,
and smote
<05221> (8686)
all the country
<07704>
of the Amalekites
<06003>_,
and also the Amorites
<0567>_,
that dwelt
<03427> (8802)
in Hazezontamar
<02688>_.
And there went out
<03318> (8799)
the king
<04428>
of Sodom
<05467>_,
and the king
<04428>
of Gomorrah
<06017>_,
and the king
<04428>
of Admah
<0126>_,
and the king
<04428>
of Zeboiim
<06636>_,
and the king
<04428>
of Bela
<01106>
(the same
<01931>
[is] Zoar
<06820>;)
and they joined
<06186> (8799)
battle
<04421>
with them in the vale
<06010>
of Siddim
<07708>_;
With Chedorlaomer
<03540>
the king
<04428>
of Elam
<05867>_,
and with Tidal
<08413>
king
<04428>
of nations
<01471>_,
and Amraphel
<0569>
king
<04428>
of Shinar
<08152>_,
and Arioch
<0746>
king
<04428>
of Ellasar
<0495>_;
four
<0702>
kings
<04428>
with five
<02568>_.
And the vale
<06010>
of Siddim
<07708>
[was full of]
<0875>
slimepits
<0875> <02564>_;
and the kings
<04428>
of Sodom
<05467>
and Gomorrah
<06017>
fled
<05127> (8799)_,
and fell
<05307> (8799)
there; and they that remained
<07604> (8737)
fled
<05127> (8804)
to the mountain
<02022>_.
And they took
<03947> (8799)
all the goods
<07399>
of Sodom
<05467>
and Gomorrah
<06017>_,
and all their victuals
<0400>_,
and went their way
<03212> (8799)_.
And they took
<03947> (8799)
Lot
<03876>_,
Abram's
<087>
brother's
<0251>
son
<01121>_,
who dwelt
<03427> (8802)
in Sodom
<05467>_,
and his goods
<07399>_,
and departed
<03212> (8799)_.
And there came
<0935> (8799)
one that had escaped
<06412>_,
and told
<05046> (8686)
Abram
<087>
the Hebrew
<05680>_;
for he dwelt
<07931> (8802)
in the plain
<0436>
of Mamre
<04471>
the Amorite
<0567>_,
brother
<0251>
of Eshcol
<0812>_,
and brother
<0251>
of Aner
<06063>_:
and these [were] confederate
<01167> <01285>
with Abram
<087>_.
{plain: Heb. plains}
And when Abram
<087>
heard
<08085> (8799)
that his brother
<0251>
was taken captive
<07617> (8738)_,
he armed
<07324> (8686)
his trained
<02593>
[servants], born
<03211>
in his own house
<01004>_,
three
<07969>
hundred
<03967>
and eighteen
<06240> <08083>_,
and pursued
<07291> (8799)
[them] unto Dan
<01835>_.
{armed: or, led forth} {trained: or, instructed}
And he divided
<02505> (8735)
himself against them, he and his servants
<05650>_,
by night
<03915>_,
and smote
<05221> (8686)
them, and pursued
<07291> (8799)
them unto Hobah
<02327>_,
which [is] on the left hand
<08040>
of Damascus
<01834>_.
And he brought back
<07725> (8686)
all the goods
<07399>_,
and also brought again
<07725> (8689)
his brother
<0251>
Lot
<03876>_,
and his goods
<07399>_,
and the women
<0802>
also, and the people
<05971>_.
And the king
<04428>
of Sodom
<05467>
went out
<03318> (8799)
to meet
<07125> (8800)
him after
<0310>
his return
<07725> (8800)
from the slaughter
<05221> (8687)
of Chedorlaomer
<03540>_,
and of the kings
<04428>
that [were] with him, at the valley
<06010>
of Shaveh
<07740>_,
which
<01931>
[is] the king's
<04428>
dale
<06010>_.
And Melchizedek
<04442>
king
<04428>
of Salem
<08004>
brought forth
<03318> (8689)
bread
<03899>
and wine
<03196>_:
and he [was] the priest
<03548>
of the most high
<05945>
God
<0410>_.
And he blessed
<01288> (8762)
him, and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Blessed
<01288> (8803)
[be] Abram
<087>
of the most high
<05945>
God
<0410>_,
possessor
<07069> (8802)
of heaven
<08064>
and earth
<0776>_:
And blessed
<01288> (8803)
be the most high
<05945>
God
<0410>_,
which hath delivered
<04042> (8765)
thine enemies
<06862>
into thy hand
<03027>_.
And he gave
<05414> (8799)
him tithes
<04643>
of all.
And the king
<04428>
of Sodom
<05467>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Abram
<087>_,
Give
<05414> (8798)
me the persons
<05315>_,
and take
<03947> (8798)
the goods
<07399>
to thyself. {persons: Heb. souls}
And Abram
<087>
said
<0559> (8799)
to the king
<04428>
of Sodom
<05467>_,
I have lift up
<07311> (8689)
mine hand
<03027>
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
the most high
<05945>
God
<0410>_,
the possessor
<07069> (8802)
of heaven
<08064>
and earth
<0776>_,
That I will not
<0518>
[take] from a thread
<02339>
even to a shoelatchet
<05275> <08288>_,
and that I will not
<0518>
take
<03947> (8799)
any thing that [is] thine, lest thou shouldest say
<0559> (8799)_,
I have made
<06238> (0)
Abram
<087>
rich
<06238> (8689)_:
Save
<01107>
only that which
<0834>
the young men
<05288>
have eaten
<0398> (8804)_,
and the portion
<02506>
of the men
<0582>
which went
<01980> (8804)
with
<0854>
me, Aner
<06063>_,
Eshcol
<0812>_,
and Mamre
<04471>_;
let them
<01992>
take
<03947> (8799)
their portion
<02506>_.
After
<0310>
these things
<01697>
the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
came
<01961> (8804)
unto Abram
<087>
in a vision
<04236>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Fear
<03372> (8799)
not, Abram
<087>_:
I [am] thy shield
<04043>_,
[and] thy exceeding
<03966>
great
<07235> (8687)
reward
<07939>_.
And Abram
<087>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_,
what wilt thou give
<05414> (8799)
me, seeing I go
<01980> (8802)
childless
<06185>_,
and the steward
<01121> <04943>
of my house
<01004>
[is] this
<01931>
Eliezer
<0461>
of Damascus
<01834>_?
And Abram
<087>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold, to me thou hast given
<05414> (8804)
no
<03808>
seed
<02233>_:
and, lo, one born
<01121>
in my house
<01004>
is mine heir
<03423> (8802)_.
And, behold, the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
[came] unto him, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
This shall not be thine heir
<03423> (8799)_;
but he that shall come forth
<03318> (8799)
out of thine own bowels
<04578>
shall be thine heir
<03423> (8799)_.
And he brought him forth
<03318> (8686)
abroad
<02351>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Look
<05027> (8685)
now toward heaven
<08064>_,
and tell
<05608> (8798)
the stars
<03556>_,
if thou be able
<03201> (8799)
to number
<05608> (8800)
them: and he said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, So
<03541>
shall thy seed
<02233>
be.
And he believed
<0539> (8689)
in the LORD
<03068>_;
and he counted
<02803> (8799)
it to him for righteousness
<06666>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, I [am] the LORD
<03068>
that brought thee out
<03318> (8689)
of Ur
<0218>
of the Chaldees
<03778>_,
to give
<05414> (8800)
thee this land
<0776>
to inherit
<03423> (8800)
it.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_,
whereby
<04100>
shall I know
<03045> (8799)
that I shall inherit it
<03423> (8799)_?
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Take
<03947> (8798)
me an heifer
<05697>
of three years old
<08027> (8794)_,
and a she goat
<05795>
of three years old
<08027> (8794)_,
and a ram
<0352>
of three years old
<08027> (8794)_,
and a turtledove
<08449>_,
and a young pigeon
<01469>_.
And he took
<03947> (8799)
unto him all these, and divided
<01334> (8762)
them in the midst
<08432>_,
and laid
<05414> (8799)
each
<0376>
piece
<01335>
one against
<07125> (8800)
another
<07453>_:
but the birds
<06833>
divided
<01334> (8804)
he not.
And when the fowls
<05861>
came down
<03381> (8799)
upon the carcases
<06297>_,
Abram
<087>
drove them away
<05380> (8686)_.
And when the sun
<08121>
was going down
<0935> (8800)_,
a deep sleep
<08639>
fell
<05307> (8804)
upon Abram
<087>_;
and, lo, an horror
<0367>
of great
<01419>
darkness
<02825>
fell
<05307> (8802)
upon him.
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto Abram
<087>_,
Know
<03045> (8799)
of a surety
<03045> (8800)
that thy seed
<02233>
shall be a stranger
<01616>
in a land
<0776>
[that is] not theirs, and shall serve
<05647> (8804)
them; and they shall afflict
<06031> (8765)
them four
<0702>
hundred
<03967>
years
<08141>_;
And also that nation
<01471>_,
whom they shall serve
<05647> (8799)_,
will I judge
<01777> (8802)_:
and afterward
<0310> <03651>
shall they come out
<03318> (8799)
with great
<01419>
substance
<07399>_.
And thou shalt go
<0935> (8799)
to thy fathers
<01>
in peace
<07965>_;
thou shalt be buried
<06912> (8735)
in a good
<02896>
old age
<07872>_.
But in the fourth
<07243>
generation
<01755>
they shall come hither
<02008>
again
<07725> (8799)_:
for the iniquity
<05771>
of the Amorites
<0567>
[is] not yet
<02008>
full
<08003>_.
And it came to pass, that, when the sun
<08121>
went down
<0935> (8804)_,
and it was dark
<05939>_,
behold a smoking
<06227>
furnace
<08574>_,
and a burning
<0784>
lamp
<03940>
that passed
<05674> (8804)
between
<0996>
those pieces
<01506>_.
{a burning...: Heb. a lamp of fire}
In the same
<01931>
day
<03117>
the LORD
<03068>
made
<03772> (8804)
a covenant
<01285>
with Abram
<087>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Unto thy seed
<02233>
have I given
<05414> (8804)
this land
<0776>_,
from the river
<05104>
of Egypt
<04714>
unto the great
<01419>
river
<05104>_,
the river
<05104>
Euphrates
<06578>_:
The Kenites
<07017>_,
and the Kenizzites
<07074>_,
and the Kadmonites
<06935>_,
And the Hittites
<02850>_,
and the Perizzites
<06522>_,
and the Rephaims
<07497>_,
And the Amorites
<0567>_,
and the Canaanites
<03669>_,
and the Girgashites
<01622>_,
and the Jebusites
<02983>_.
Now Sarai
<08297>
Abram's
<087>
wife
<0802>
bare
<03205> (0)
him no
<03808>
children
<03205> (8804)_:
and she had an handmaid
<08198>_,
an Egyptian
<04713>_,
whose name
<08034>
[was] Hagar
<01904>_.
And Sarai
<08297>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Abram
<087>_,
Behold now, the LORD
<03068>
hath restrained me
<06113> (8804)
from bearing
<03205> (8800)_:
I pray thee, go in
<0935> (8798)
unto my maid
<08198>_;
it may
<0194>
be that I may obtain children
<01129> (8735)
by her. And Abram
<087>
hearkened
<08085> (8799)
to the voice
<06963>
of Sarai
<08297>_.
{obtain...: Heb. be built by her}
And Sarai
<08297>
Abram's
<087>
wife
<0802>
took
<03947> (8799)
Hagar
<01904>
her maid
<08198>
the Egyptian
<04713>_,
after
<07093>
Abram
<087>
had dwelt
<03427> (8800)
ten
<06235>
years
<08141>
in the land
<0776>
of Canaan
<03667>_,
and gave
<05414> (8799)
her to her husband
<0376>
Abram
<087>
to be his wife
<0802>_.
And he went in
<0935> (8799)
unto Hagar
<01904>_,
and she conceived
<02029> (8799)_:
and when she saw
<07200> (8799)
that she had conceived
<02029> (8804)_,
her mistress
<01404>
was despised
<07043> (8799)
in her eyes
<05869>_.
And Sarai
<08297>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Abram
<087>_,
My wrong
<02555>
[be] upon thee: I have given
<05414> (8804)
my maid
<08198>
into thy bosom
<02436>_;
and when she saw
<07200> (8799)
that she had conceived
<02029> (8804)_,
I was despised
<07043> (8799)
in her eyes
<05869>_:
the LORD
<03068>
judge
<08199> (8799)
between me and thee.
But Abram
<087>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Sarai
<08297>_,
Behold, thy maid
<08198>
[is] in thy hand
<03027>_;
do
<06213> (8798)
to her as it pleaseth thee
<02896> <05869>_.
And when Sarai
<08297>
dealt hardly with
<06031> (8762)
her, she fled
<01272> (8799)
from her face
<06440>_.
{as...: Heb. that which is good in thine eyes} {dealt...: Heb. afflicted her}
And the angel
<04397>
of the LORD
<03068>
found her
<04672> (8799)
by a fountain
<05869>
of water
<04325>
in the wilderness
<04057>_,
by the fountain
<05869>
in the way
<01870>
to Shur
<07793>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Hagar
<01904>_,
Sarai's
<08297>
maid
<08198>_,
whence
<0335>
camest thou
<0935> (8804)_?
and whither wilt thou go
<03212> (8799)_?
And she said
<0559> (8799)_,
I flee
<01272> (8802)
from the face
<06440>
of my mistress
<01404>
Sarai
<08297>_.
And the angel
<04397>
of the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto her, Return
<07725> (8798)
to thy mistress
<01404>_,
and submit
<06031> (8690)
thyself under her hands
<03027>_.
And the angel
<04397>
of the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto her, I will multiply
<07235> (8686)
thy seed
<02233>
exceedingly
<07235> (8687)_,
that it shall not be numbered
<05608> (8735)
for multitude
<07230>_.
And the angel
<04397>
of the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto her, Behold
<02009>_,
thou [art] with child
<02030>_,
and shalt bear
<03205> (8802)
a son
<01121>_,
and shalt call
<07121> (8804)
his name
<08034>
Ishmael
<03458>_;
because the LORD
<03068>
hath heard
<08085> (8804)
thy affliction
<06040>_.
{Ishmael: that is, God shall hear}
And he will be a wild
<06501>
man
<0120>_;
his hand
<03027>
[will be] against every man, and every man's hand
<03027>
against him; and he shall dwell
<07931> (8799)
in the presence
<06440>
of all his brethren
<0251>_.
And she called
<07121> (8799)
the name
<08034>
of the LORD
<03068>
that spake
<01696> (8802)
unto her, Thou God
<0410>
seest me
<07210>_:
for she said
<0559> (8804)_,
Have I also here
<01988>
looked
<07200> (8804)
after him
<0310>
that seeth me
<07210>_?
Wherefore the well
<0875>
was called
<07121> (8804)
Beerlahairoi
<0883> <02416>_;
behold, [it is] between Kadesh
<06946>
and Bered
<01260>_.
{Beerlahairoi: that is, The well of him that liveth and seeth me}
And Hagar
<01904>
bare
<03205> (8799)
Abram
<087>
a son
<01121>_:
and Abram
<087>
called
<07121> (8799)
his son's
<01121>
name
<08034>_,
which Hagar
<01904>
bare
<03205> (8804)_,
Ishmael
<03458>_.
And Abram
<087>
[was] fourscore
<08084> <08141>
and six
<08337>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>_,
when Hagar
<01904>
bare
<03205> (8800)
Ishmael
<03458>
to Abram
<087>_.
And when Abram
<087>
was ninety
<08673> <08141>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>
and nine
<08672>_,
the LORD
<03068>
appeared
<07200> (8735)
to Abram
<087>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, I [am] the Almighty
<07706>
God
<0410>_;
walk
<01980> (8690)
before me
<06440>_,
and be thou perfect
<08549>_.
{perfect: or, upright, or, sincere}
And I will make
<05414> (8799)
my covenant
<01285>
between me and thee, and will multiply
<07235> (8686)
thee exceedingly
<03966> <03966>_.
And Abram
<087>
fell
<05307> (8799)
on his face
<06440>_:
and God
<0430>
talked
<01696> (8762)
with him, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
As for me
<0589>_,
behold, my covenant
<01285>
[is] with thee, and thou shalt be a father
<01>
of many
<01995>
nations
<01471>_.
{many...: Heb. multitude of nations}
Neither shall thy name
<08034>
any more be called
<07121> (8735)
Abram
<087>_,
but thy name
<08034>
shall be Abraham
<085>_;
for a father
<01>
of many
<01995>
nations
<01471>
have I made thee
<05414> (8804)_.
{Abraham: that is, Father of a great multitude}
And I will make
<06509> (0)
thee exceeding
<03966> <03966>
fruitful
<06509> (8689)_,
and I will make
<05414> (8804)
nations
<01471>
of thee, and kings
<04428>
shall come out
<03318> (8799)
of thee.
And I will establish
<06965> (8689)
my covenant
<01285>
between me and thee and thy seed
<02233>
after thee
<0310>
in their generations
<01755>
for an everlasting
<05769>
covenant
<01285>_,
to be a God
<0430>
unto thee, and to thy seed
<02233>
after thee
<0310>_.
And I will give
<05414> (8804)
unto thee, and to thy seed
<02233>
after thee
<0310>_,
the land
<0776>
wherein thou art a stranger
<04033>_,
all the land
<0776>
of Canaan
<03667>_,
for an everlasting
<05769>
possession
<0272>_;
and I will be their God
<0430>_.
{wherein...: Heb. of thy sojournings}
And God
<0430>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Abraham
<085>_,
Thou shalt keep
<08104> (8799)
my covenant
<01285>
therefore, thou, and thy seed
<02233>
after thee
<0310>
in their generations
<01755>_.
This [is] my covenant
<01285>_,
which ye shall keep
<08104> (8799)_,
between me and you and thy seed
<02233>
after thee
<0310>_;
Every man child
<02145>
among you shall be circumcised
<04135> (8736)_.
And ye shall circumcise
<05243> (8804)
the flesh
<01320>
of your foreskin
<06190>_;
and it shall be a token
<0226>
of the covenant
<01285>
betwixt me and you.
And he that is eight
<08083>
days
<03117>
old
<01121>
shall be circumcised
<04135> (8735)
among you, every man child
<02145>
in your generations
<01755>_,
he that is born
<03211>
in the house
<01004>_,
or bought
<04736>
with money
<03701>
of any stranger
<01121> <05236>_,
which [is] not of thy seed
<02233>_.
{he that is eight...: Heb. a son of eight days}
He that is born
<03211>
in thy house
<01004>_,
and he that is bought
<04736>
with thy money
<03701>_,
must needs
<04135> (8736)
be circumcised
<04135> (8735)_:
and my covenant
<01285>
shall be in your flesh
<01320>
for an everlasting
<05769>
covenant
<01285>_.
And the uncircumcised
<06189>
man child
<02145>
whose
<0834>
flesh
<01320>
of his foreskin
<06190>
is not circumcised
<04135> (8735)_,
that soul
<05315>
shall be cut off
<03772> (8738)
from his people
<05971>_;
he hath broken
<06565> (8689)
my covenant
<01285>_.
And God
<0430>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Abraham
<085>_,
As for Sarai
<08297>
thy wife
<0802>_,
thou shalt not call
<07121> (8799)
her name
<08034>
Sarai
<08297>_,
but
<03588>
Sarah
<08283>
[shall] her name
<08034>
[be]. {Sarah: that is Princess}
And I will bless
<01288> (8765)
her, and give
<05414> (8804)
thee a son
<01121>
also of her: yea, I will bless
<01288> (8765)
her, and she shall be [a mother] of nations
<01471>_;
kings
<04428>
of people
<05971>
shall be of her. {she...: Heb. she shall become nations}
Then Abraham
<085>
fell
<05307> (8799)
upon his face
<06440>_,
and laughed
<06711> (8799)_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
in his heart
<03820>_,
Shall [a child] be born
<03205> (8735)
unto him that is an hundred
<03967>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>_?
and shall Sarah
<08283>_,
that is ninety
<08673>
years
<08141>
old
<01323>_,
bear
<03205> (8799)_?
And Abraham
<085>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto God
<0430>_,
O that
<03863>
Ishmael
<03458>
might live
<02421> (8799)
before thee
<06440>_!
And God
<0430>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Sarah
<08283>
thy wife
<0802>
shall bear
<03205> (8802)
thee a son
<01121>
indeed
<061>_;
and thou shalt call
<07121> (8804)
his name
<08034>
Isaac
<03327>_:
and I will establish
<06965> (8689)
my covenant
<01285>
with him for an everlasting
<05769>
covenant
<01285>_,
[and] with his seed
<02233>
after him
<0310>_.
And as for Ishmael
<03458>_,
I have heard thee
<08085> (8804)_:
Behold, I have blessed
<01288> (8765)
him, and will make him fruitful
<06509> (8689)_,
and will multiply
<07235> (8689)
him exceedingly
<03966> <03966>_;
twelve
<06240> <08147>
princes
<05387>
shall he beget
<03205> (8686)_,
and I will make him
<05414> (8804)
a great
<01419>
nation
<01471>_.
But my covenant
<01285>
will I establish
<06965> (8686)
with Isaac
<03327>_,
which Sarah
<08283>
shall bear
<03205> (8799)
unto thee at this set time
<04150>
in the next
<0312>
year
<08141>_.
And he left off
<03615> (8762)
talking
<01696> (8763)
with him, and God
<0430>
went up
<05927> (8799)
from Abraham
<085>_.
And Abraham
<085>
took
<03947> (8799)
Ishmael
<03458>
his son
<01121>_,
and all that were born
<03211>
in his house
<01004>_,
and all that were bought
<04736>
with his money
<03701>_,
every male
<02145>
among the men
<0582>
of Abraham's
<085>
house
<01004>_;
and circumcised
<04135> (8799)
the flesh
<01320>
of their foreskin
<06190>
in the selfsame
<06106>
day
<03117>_,
as God
<0430>
had said
<01696> (8765)
unto him.
And Abraham
<085>
[was] ninety
<08673>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>
and nine
<08672>_,
when he was circumcised
<04135> (8736)
in the flesh
<01320>
of his foreskin
<06190>_.
And Ishmael
<03458>
his son
<01121>
[was] thirteen
<06240> <07969>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>_,
when he was circumcised
<04135> (8736)
in the flesh
<01320>
of his foreskin
<06190>_.
In the selfsame
<06106>
day
<03117>
was Abraham
<085>
circumcised
<04135> (8738)_,
and Ishmael
<03458>
his son
<01121>_.
And all the men
<0582>
of his house
<01004>_,
born
<03211>
in the house
<01004>_,
and bought
<04736>
with money
<03701>
of the stranger
<01121> <05236>_,
were circumcised
<04135> (8738)
with him.
And the LORD
<03068>
appeared
<07200> (8735)
unto him in the plains
<0436>
of Mamre
<04471>_:
and he sat
<03427> (8802)
in the tent
<0168>
door
<06607>
in the heat
<02527>
of the day
<03117>_;
{plain: Heb. plains}
And he lift up
<05375> (8799)
his eyes
<05869>
and looked
<07200> (8799)_,
and, lo, three
<07969>
men
<0582>
stood
<05324> (8737)
by him: and when he saw
<07200> (8799)
[them], he ran
<07323> (8799)
to meet
<07125> (8800)
them from the tent
<0168>
door
<06607>_,
and bowed
<07812> (8691)
himself toward the ground
<0776>_,
And said
<0559> (8799)_,
My Lord
<0136>_,
if now I have found
<04672> (8804)
favour
<02580>
in thy sight
<05869>_,
pass not away
<05674> (8799)_,
I pray thee, from thy servant
<05650>_:
Let a little
<04592>
water
<04325>_,
I pray you
<04994>_,
be fetched
<03947> (8714)_,
and wash
<07364> (8798)
your feet
<07272>_,
and rest yourselves
<08172> (8734)
under the tree
<06086>_:
And I will fetch
<03947> (8799)
a morsel
<06595>
of bread
<03899>_,
and comfort ye
<05582> (8798)
your hearts
<03820>_;
after that
<0310>
ye shall pass on
<05674> (8799)_:
for therefore are ye come
<05674> (8804)
to
<05921>
your servant
<05650>_.
And they said
<01696> (8765)_,
So do
<06213> (8799)_,
as thou hast said
<0559> (8799)_.
{comfort: Heb. stay} {are...: Heb. you have passed}
And Abraham
<085>
hastened
<04116> (8762)
into the tent
<0168>
unto Sarah
<08283>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Make ready quickly
<04116> (8761)
three
<07969>
measures
<05429>
of fine
<05560>
meal
<07058>_,
knead
<03888> (8798)
[it], and make
<06213> (0)
cakes
<05692>
upon the hearth
<06213> (8798)_.
{Make ready...: Heb. Hasten}
And Abraham
<085>
ran
<07323> (8804)
unto the herd
<01241>_,
and fetcht
<03947> (8799)
a calf
<01121> <01241>
tender
<07390>
and good
<02896>_,
and gave
<05414> (8799)
[it] unto a young man
<05288>_;
and he hasted
<04116> (8762)
to dress
<06213> (8800)
it.
And he took
<03947> (8799)
butter
<02529>_,
and milk
<02461>_,
and the calf
<01121> <01241>
which he had dressed
<06213> (8804)_,
and set
<05414> (8799)
[it] before them
<06440>_;
and he stood
<05975> (8802)
by them under the tree
<06086>_,
and they did eat
<0398> (8799)_.
And they said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Where
<0346>
[is] Sarah
<08283>
thy wife
<0802>_?
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold, in the tent
<0168>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will certainly
<07725> (8800)
return
<07725> (8799)
unto thee according to the time
<06256>
of life
<02416>_;
and, lo, Sarah
<08283>
thy wife
<0802>
shall have a son
<01121>_.
And Sarah
<08283>
heard
<08085> (8802)
[it] in the tent
<0168>
door
<06607>_,
which [was] behind him
<0310>_.
Now Abraham
<085>
and Sarah
<08283>
[were] old
<02205>
[and] well stricken
<0935> (8802)
in age
<03117>_;
[and] it ceased
<02308> (8804)
to be with Sarah
<08283>
after the manner
<0734>
of women
<0802>_.
Therefore Sarah
<08283>
laughed
<06711> (8799)
within herself
<07130>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
After
<0310>
I am waxed old
<01086> (8800)
shall I have pleasure
<05730>_,
my lord
<0113>
being old also
<02204> (8804)_?
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Abraham
<085>_,
Wherefore
<04100>
did Sarah
<08283>
laugh
<06711> (8804)_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Shall I of a surety
<0552>
bear
<03205> (8799)
a child, which
<0589>
am old
<02204> (8804)_?
Is
<06381> (0)
any thing
<01697>
too hard
<06381> (8735)
for the LORD
<03068>_?
At the time appointed
<04150>
I will return
<07725> (8799)
unto thee, according to the time
<06256>
of life
<02416>_,
and Sarah
<08283>
shall have a son
<01121>_.
Then Sarah
<08283>
denied
<03584> (8762)_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
I laughed
<06711> (8804)
not; for she was afraid
<03372> (8804)_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Nay
<03808>_;
but thou didst laugh
<06711> (8804)_.
And the men
<0582>
rose up
<06965> (8799)
from thence, and looked
<08259> (8686)
toward
<06440>
Sodom
<05467>_:
and Abraham
<085>
went
<01980> (8802)
with them to bring them on the way
<07971> (8763)_.
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8804)_,
Shall I hide
<03680> (8764)
from Abraham
<085>
that thing which
<0834>
I do
<06213> (8802)_;
Seeing that Abraham
<085>
shall surely become a great
<01419>
and mighty
<06099>
nation
<01471>_,
and all the nations
<01471>
of the earth
<0776>
shall be blessed
<01288> (8738)
in him?
For I know
<03045> (8804)
him, that
<0834>
he will command
<06680> (8762)
his children
<01121>
and his household
<01004>
after him
<0310>_,
and they shall keep
<08104> (8804)
the way
<01870>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
to do
<06213> (8800)
justice
<06666>
and judgment
<04941>_;
that the LORD
<03068>
may bring
<0935> (8687)
upon Abraham
<085>
that which he hath spoken
<01696> (8765)
of him.
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Because the cry
<02201>
of Sodom
<05467>
and Gomorrah
<06017>
is great
<07227>_,
and because their sin
<02403>
is very
<03966>
grievous
<03513> (8804)_;
I will go down
<03381> (8799)
now, and see
<07200> (8799)
whether they have done
<06213> (8804)
altogether
<03617>
according to the cry
<06818>
of it, which is come
<0935> (8802)
unto me; and if not, I will know
<03045> (8799)_.
And the men
<0582>
turned their faces
<06437> (8799)
from thence, and went
<03212> (8799)
toward Sodom
<05467>_:
but Abraham
<085>
stood
<05975> (8802)
yet
<05750>
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_.
And Abraham
<085>
drew near
<05066> (8799)_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Wilt thou also destroy
<05595> (8799)
the righteous
<06662>
with
<05973>
the wicked
<07563>_?
Peradventure there be
<03426>
fifty
<02572>
righteous
<06662>
within
<08432>
the city
<05892>_:
wilt thou also destroy
<05595> (8799)
and not spare
<05375> (8799)
the place
<04725>
for
<04616>
the fifty
<02572>
righteous
<06662>
that [are] therein
<07130>_?
That be far
<02486>
from thee to do
<06213> (8800)
after this manner
<01697>_,
to slay
<04191> (8687)
the righteous
<06662>
with the wicked
<07563>_:
and that the righteous
<06662>
should be as the wicked
<07563>_,
that be far
<02486>
from thee: Shall not the Judge
<08199> (8802)
of all the earth
<0776>
do
<06213> (8799)
right
<04941>_?
And the LORD
<03068>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
If I find
<04672> (8799)
in Sodom
<05467>
fifty
<02572>
righteous
<06662>
within
<08432>
the city
<05892>_,
then I will spare
<05375> (8804)
all the place
<04725>
for their sakes.
And Abraham
<085>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold now, I have taken upon me
<02974> (8689)
to speak
<01696> (8763)
unto the Lord
<0136>_,
which
<0595>
[am but] dust
<06083>
and ashes
<0665>_:
Peradventure there shall lack
<02637> (8799)
five
<02568>
of the fifty
<02572>
righteous
<06662>_:
wilt thou destroy
<07843> (8686)
all the city
<05892>
for [lack of] five
<02568>_?
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
If I find
<04672> (8799)
there forty
<0705>
and five
<02568>_,
I will not destroy
<07843> (8686)
[it].
And he spake
<01696> (8763)
unto him yet again
<03254> (8686)_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Peradventure there shall be forty
<0705>
found
<04672> (8735)
there. And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will not do
<06213> (8799)
[it] for forty's
<0705>
sake.
And he said
<0559> (8799)
[unto him], Oh
<04994>
let not the Lord
<0136>
be angry
<02734> (8799)_,
and I will speak
<01696> (8762)_:
Peradventure there shall thirty
<07970>
be found
<04672> (8735)
there. And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will not do
<06213> (8799)
[it], if I find
<04672> (8799)
thirty
<07970>
there.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold now, I have taken upon me
<02974> (8689)
to speak
<01696> (8763)
unto the Lord
<0136>_:
Peradventure there shall be twenty
<06242>
found
<04672> (8735)
there. And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will not destroy
<07843> (8686)
[it] for twenty's
<06242>
sake.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Oh let not the Lord
<0136>
be angry
<02734> (8799)_,
and I will speak
<01696> (8762)
yet
<0389>
but this once
<06471>_:
Peradventure ten
<06235>
shall be found
<04672> (8735)
there. And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will not destroy
<07843> (8686)
[it] for ten's
<06235>
sake.
And the LORD
<03068>
went his way
<03212> (8799)_,
as soon as
<0834>
he had left
<03615> (8765)
communing
<01696> (8763)
with Abraham
<085>_:
and Abraham
<085>
returned
<07725> (8804)
unto his place
<04725>_.
And there came
<0935> (8799)
two
<08147>
angels
<04397>
to Sodom
<05467>
at even
<06153>_;
and Lot
<03876>
sat
<03427> (8802)
in the gate
<08179>
of Sodom
<05467>_:
and Lot
<03876>
seeing
<07200> (8799)
[them] rose up
<06965> (8799)
to meet
<07125> (8800)
them; and he bowed
<07812> (8691)
himself with his face
<0639>
toward the ground
<0776>_;
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold now, my lords
<0113>_,
turn in
<05493> (8798)_,
I pray you, into your servant's
<05650>
house
<01004>_,
and tarry all night
<03885> (8798)_,
and wash
<07364> (8798)
your feet
<07272>_,
and ye shall rise up early
<07925> (8689)_,
and go
<01980> (8804)
on your ways
<01870>_.
And they said
<0559> (8799)_,
Nay; but we will abide
<03885> (0)
in the street
<07339>
all night
<03885> (8799)_.
And he pressed
<06484> (8799)
upon them greatly
<03966>_;
and they turned in
<05493> (8799)
unto him, and entered
<0935> (8799)
into his house
<01004>_;
and he made
<06213> (8799)
them a feast
<04960>_,
and did bake
<0644> (8804)
unleavened bread
<04682>_,
and they did eat
<0398> (8799)_.
But before they lay down
<07901> (8799)_,
the men
<0582>
of the city
<05892>_,
[even] the men
<0582>
of Sodom
<05467>_,
compassed
<05437> (0)
the house
<01004>
round
<05437> (8738)_,
both old
<02205>
and young
<05288>_,
all the people
<05971>
from every quarter
<07097>_:
And they called
<07121> (8799)
unto Lot
<03876>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Where [are] the men
<0582>
which came in
<0935> (8804)
to thee this night
<03915>_?
bring them out
<03318> (8685)
unto us, that we may know
<03045> (8799)
them.
And Lot
<03876>
went out
<03318> (8799)
at the door
<06607>
unto them, and shut
<05462> (8804)
the door
<01817>
after him
<0310>_,
And said
<0559> (8799)_,
I pray you, brethren
<0251>_,
do not so wickedly
<07489> (8686)_.
Behold now, I have two
<08147>
daughters
<01323>
which have not known
<03045> (8804)
man
<0376>_;
let me, I pray you, bring them out
<03318> (8686)
unto you, and do
<06213> (8798)
ye to them as [is] good
<02896>
in your eyes
<05869>_:
only unto these
<0411>
men
<0582>
do
<06213> (8799)
nothing
<0408> <01697>_;
for therefore came
<0935> (8804)
they under the shadow
<06738>
of my roof
<06982>_.
And they said
<0559> (8799)_,
Stand
<05066> (8798)
back
<01973>_.
And they said
<0559> (8799)
[again], This one
<0259>
[fellow] came in
<0935> (8804)
to sojourn
<01481> (8800)_,
and he will needs
<08199> (8800)
be a judge
<08199> (8799)_:
now will we deal worse
<07489> (8686)
with thee, than with them. And they pressed
<06484> (8799)
sore
<03966>
upon the man
<0376>_,
[even] Lot
<03876>_,
and came near
<05066> (8799)
to break
<07665> (8800)
the door
<01817>_.
But the men
<0582>
put forth
<07971> (8799)
their hand
<03027>_,
and pulled
<0935> (8686)
Lot
<03876>
into the house
<01004>
to them, and shut
<05462> (8804)
to the door
<01817>_.
And they smote
<05221> (8689)
the men
<0582>
that [were] at the door
<06607>
of the house
<01004>
with blindness
<05575>_,
both small
<06996>
and great
<01419>_:
so that they wearied
<03811> (8799)
themselves to find
<04672> (8800)
the door
<06607>_.
And the men
<0582>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Lot
<03876>_,
Hast thou here
<06311>
any
<04310>
besides? son in law
<02860>_,
and thy sons
<01121>_,
and thy daughters
<01323>_,
and whatsoever
<0834>
thou hast in the city
<05892>_,
bring [them] out
<03318> (8685)
of this place
<04725>_:
For we
<0587>
will destroy
<07843> (8688) <0853>
this place
<04725>_,
because the cry of them
<06818>
is waxen great
<01431> (8804)
before
<0854>
the face
<06440>
of the LORD
<03068>_;
and the LORD
<03068>
hath sent
<07971> (8762)
us to destroy
<07843> (8763)
it.
And Lot
<03876>
went out
<03318> (8799)_,
and spake
<01696> (8762)
unto his sons in law
<02860>_,
which married
<03947> (8802)
his daughters
<01323>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Up
<06965> (8798)_,
get you out
<03318> (8798)
of this place
<04725>_;
for the LORD
<03068>
will destroy
<07843> (8688)
this city
<05892>_.
But he seemed as one that mocked
<06711> (8764)
unto
<05869>
his sons in law
<02860>_.
And when
<03644>
the morning
<07837>
arose
<05927> (8804)_,
then the angels
<04397>
hastened
<0213> (8686)
Lot
<03876>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Arise
<06965> (8798)_,
take
<03947> (8798)
thy wife
<0802>_,
and thy two
<08147>
daughters
<01323>_,
which are here
<04672> (8737)_;
lest thou be consumed
<05595> (8735)
in the iniquity
<05771>
of the city
<05892>_.
{are here: Heb. are found} {iniquity: or, punishment}
And while he lingered
<04102> (8698)_,
the men
<0582>
laid hold
<02388> (8686)
upon his hand
<03027>_,
and upon the hand
<03027>
of his wife
<0802>_,
and upon the hand
<03027>
of his two
<08147>
daughters
<01323>_;
the LORD
<03068>
being merciful
<02551>
unto him: and they brought him forth
<03318> (8686)_,
and set him
<03240> (8686)
without
<02351>
the city
<05892>_.
And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth
<03318> (8687)
abroad
<02351>_,
that he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Escape
<04422> (8734)
for
<05921>
thy life
<05315>_;
look
<05027> (8686)
not behind thee
<0310>_,
neither stay
<05975> (8799)
thou in all the plain
<03603>_;
escape
<04422> (8734)
to the mountain
<02022>_,
lest thou be consumed
<05595> (8735)_.
And Lot
<03876>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord
<0113>_:
Behold now, thy servant
<05650>
hath found
<04672> (8804)
grace
<02580>
in thy sight
<05869>_,
and thou hast magnified
<01431> (8686)
thy mercy
<02617>_,
which thou hast shewed
<06213> (8804)
unto me
<05978>
in saving
<02421> (8687)
my life
<05315>_;
and I cannot
<03201> (8799)
escape
<04422> (8736)
to the mountain
<02022>_,
lest some evil
<07451>
take
<01692> (8799)
me, and I die
<04191> (8804)_:
Behold now, this city
<05892>
[is] near
<07138>
to flee
<05127> (8800)
unto, and it
<01931>
[is] a little one
<04705>_:
Oh, let me escape
<04422> (8735)
thither, ([is] it not a little one
<04705>?)
and my soul
<05315>
shall live
<02421> (8799)_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, See
<02009>_,
I have accepted
<05375> (8804)
thee
<06440>
concerning this thing
<01697>
also, that I will not overthrow
<02015> (8800)
this city
<05892>_,
for the which
<0834>
thou hast spoken
<01696> (8765)_.
{thee: Heb. thy face}
Haste
<04116> (8761)
thee, escape
<04422> (8734)
thither; for I cannot
<03201> (8799)
do
<06213> (8800)
any thing
<01697>
till thou be come
<0935> (8800)
thither. Therefore the name
<08034>
of the city
<05892>
was called
<07121> (8804)
Zoar
<06820>_.
{Zoar: that is, Little}
The sun
<08121>
was risen
<03318> (8804)
upon the earth
<0776>
when Lot
<03876>
entered
<0935> (8804)
into Zoar
<06820>_.
{risen: Heb. gone forth}
Then the LORD
<03068>
rained
<04305> (8689)
upon Sodom
<05467>
and upon Gomorrah
<06017>
brimstone
<01614>
and fire
<0784>
from the LORD
<03068>
out of heaven
<08064>_;
And he overthrew
<02015> (8799)
those
<0411>
cities
<05892>_,
and all the plain
<03603>_,
and all the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of the cities
<05892>_,
and that which grew
<06780>
upon the ground
<0127>_.
But his wife
<0802>
looked back
<05027> (8686)
from behind him
<0310>_,
and she became a pillar
<05333>
of salt
<04417>_.
And Abraham
<085>
gat up early
<07925> (8686)
in the morning
<01242>
to the place
<04725>
where he stood
<05975> (8804)
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_:
And he looked
<08259> (8686)
toward
<06440>
Sodom
<05467>
and Gomorrah
<06017>_,
and toward
<06440>
all the land
<0776>
of the plain
<03603>_,
and beheld
<07200> (8799)_,
and, lo, the smoke
<07008>
of the country
<0776>
went up
<05927> (8804)
as the smoke
<07008>
of a furnace
<03536>_.
And it came to pass, when God
<0430>
destroyed
<07843> (8763)
the cities
<05892>
of the plain
<03603>_,
that God
<0430>
remembered
<02142> (8799)
Abraham
<085>_,
and sent
<07971> (8762)
Lot
<03876>
out of the midst
<08432>
of the overthrow
<02018>_,
when he overthrew
<02015> (8800)
the cities
<05892>
in the which
<02004>
Lot
<03876>
dwelt
<03427> (8804)_.
And Lot
<03876>
went up
<05927> (8799)
out of Zoar
<06820>_,
and dwelt
<03427> (8799)
in the mountain
<02022>_,
and his two
<08147>
daughters
<01323>
with him; for he feared
<03372> (8804)
to dwell
<03427> (8800)
in Zoar
<06820>_:
and he dwelt
<03427> (8799)
in a cave
<04631>_,
he and his two
<08147>
daughters
<01323>_.
And the firstborn
<01067>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the younger
<06810>_,
Our father
<01>
[is] old
<02204> (8804)_,
and [there is] not a man
<0376>
in the earth
<0776>
to come in
<0935> (8800)
unto us after the manner
<01870>
of all the earth
<0776>_:
Come
<03212> (8798)_,
let us make
<08248> (0)
our father
<01>
drink
<08248> (8686)
wine
<03196>_,
and we will lie
<07901> (8799)
with him, that we may preserve
<02421> (8762)
seed
<02233>
of our father
<01>_.
And they made
<08248> (0)
their father
<01>
drink
<08248> (8686)
wine
<03196>
that night
<03915>_:
and the firstborn
<01067>
went in
<0935> (8799)_,
and lay
<07901> (8799)
with her father
<01>_;
and he perceived
<03045> (8804)
not when she lay down
<07901> (8800)_,
nor when she arose
<06965> (8800)_.
And it came to pass on the morrow
<04283>_,
that the firstborn
<01067>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto the younger
<06810>_,
Behold, I lay
<07901> (8804)
yesternight
<0570>
with my father
<01>_:
let us make him drink
<08248> (8686)
wine
<03196>
this night
<03915>
also; and go thou in
<0935> (8798)_,
[and] lie
<07901> (8798)
with him, that we may preserve
<02421> (8762)
seed
<02233>
of our father
<01>_.
And they made
<08248> (0)
their father
<01>
drink
<08248> (8686)
wine
<03196>
that
<01931>
night
<03915>
also: and the younger
<06810>
arose
<06965> (8799)_,
and lay
<07901> (8799)
with him; and he perceived
<03045> (8804)
not when she lay down
<07901> (8800)_,
nor when she arose
<06965> (8800)_.
Thus were both
<08147>
the daughters
<01323>
of Lot
<03876>
with child
<02029> (8799)
by their father
<01>_.
And the firstborn
<01067>
bare
<03205> (8799)
a son
<01121>_,
and called
<07121> (8799)
his name
<08034>
Moab
<04124>_:
the same
<01931>
[is] the father
<01>
of the Moabites
<04124>
unto this day
<03117>_.
And the younger
<06810>_,
she also bare
<03205> (8804)
a son
<01121>_,
and called
<07121> (8799)
his name
<08034>
Benammi
<01151>_:
the same [is] the father
<01>
of the children
<01121>
of Ammon
<05983>
unto this day
<03117>_.
And Abraham
<085>
journeyed
<05265> (8799)
from thence toward the south
<05045>
country
<0776>_,
and dwelled
<03427> (8799)
between Kadesh
<06946>
and Shur
<07793>_,
and sojourned
<01481> (8799)
in Gerar
<01642>_.
And Abraham
<085>
said
<0559> (8799)
of
<0413>
Sarah
<08283>
his wife
<0802>_,
She [is] my sister
<0269>_:
and Abimelech
<040>
king
<04428>
of Gerar
<01642>
sent
<07971> (8799)_,
and took
<03947> (8799)
Sarah
<08283>_.
But God
<0430>
came
<0935> (8799)
to Abimelech
<040>
in a dream
<02472>
by night
<03915>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
to him, Behold, thou [art but] a dead man
<04191> (8801)_,
for the woman
<0802>
which thou hast taken
<03947> (8804)_;
for she [is] a man's
<01167>
wife
<01166> (8803)_.
{a man's...: Heb. married to an husband}
But Abimelech
<040>
had not come near
<07126> (8804)
her: and he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Lord
<0136>_,
wilt thou slay
<02026> (8799)
also a righteous
<06662>
nation
<01471>_?
Said
<0559> (8804)
he not unto me, She
<01931>
[is] my sister
<0269>_?
and she
<01931>_,
even
<01571>
she
<01931>
herself said
<0559> (8804)_,
He [is] my brother
<0251>_:
in the integrity
<08537>
of my heart
<03824>
and innocency
<05356>
of my hands
<03709>
have I done
<06213> (8804)
this. {integrity: or, simplicity, or, sincerity}
And God
<0430>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him in a dream
<02472>_,
Yea
<01571>_,
I know
<03045> (8804)
that thou didst
<06213> (8804)
this in the integrity
<08537>
of thy heart
<03824>_;
for I also withheld
<02820> (8799)
thee from sinning
<02398> (8800)
against me: therefore suffered
<05414> (8804)
I thee not to touch
<05060> (8800)
her.
Now therefore restore
<07725> (8685)
the man
<0376>
[his] wife
<0802>_;
for he [is] a prophet
<05030>_,
and he shall pray
<06419> (8691)
for thee
<01157>_,
and thou shalt live
<02421> (8798)_:
and if thou restore
<07725> (8688)
[her] not, know
<03045> (8798)
thou that thou shalt surely
<04191> (8800)
die
<04191> (8799)_,
thou, and all that [are] thine.
Therefore Abimelech
<040>
rose early
<07925> (8686)
in the morning
<01242>_,
and called
<07121> (8799)
all his servants
<05650>_,
and told
<01696> (8762)
all these things
<01697>
in their ears
<0241>_:
and the men
<0582>
were sore
<03966>
afraid
<03372> (8799)_.
Then Abimelech
<040>
called
<07121> (8799)
Abraham
<085>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, What hast thou done
<06213> (8804)
unto us? and what have I offended
<02398> (8804)
thee, that thou hast brought
<0935> (8689)
on me and on my kingdom
<04467>
a great
<01419>
sin
<02401>_?
thou hast done
<06213> (8804)
deeds
<04639>
unto me that ought not to be done
<06213> (8735)_.
And Abimelech
<040>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Abraham
<085>_,
What
<04100>
sawest thou
<07200> (8804)_,
that thou hast done
<06213> (8804)
this thing
<01697>_?
And Abraham
<085>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Because I thought
<0559> (8804)_,
Surely
<07535>
the fear
<03374>
of God
<0430>
[is] not in this place
<04725>_;
and they will slay me
<02026> (8804)
for my wife's
<0802>
sake
<01697>_.
And yet indeed
<0546>
[she is] my sister
<0269>_;
she [is] the daughter
<01323>
of my father
<01>_,
but not the daughter
<01323>
of my mother
<0517>_;
and she became my wife
<0802>_.
And it came to pass, when God
<0430>
caused me to wander
<08582> (8689)
from my father's
<01>
house
<01004>_,
that I said
<0559> (8799)
unto her, This [is] thy kindness
<02617>
which thou shalt shew
<06213> (8799)
unto me; at every place
<04725>
whither we shall come
<0935> (8799)_,
say
<0559> (8798)
of me, He [is] my brother
<0251>_.
And Abimelech
<040>
took
<03947> (8799)
sheep
<06629>_,
and oxen
<01241>_,
and menservants
<05650>_,
and womenservants
<08198>_,
and gave
<05414> (8799)
[them] unto Abraham
<085>_,
and restored
<07725> (8686)
him Sarah
<08283>
his wife
<0802>_.
And Abimelech
<040>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold, my land
<0776>
[is] before thee
<06440>_:
dwell
<03427> (8798)
where it pleaseth
<02896> <05869>
thee. {where...: Heb. as is good in thine eyes}
And unto Sarah
<08283>
he said
<0559> (8804)_,
Behold, I have given
<05414> (8804)
thy brother
<0251>
a thousand
<0505>
[pieces] of silver
<03701>_:
behold, he [is] to thee a covering
<03682>
of the eyes
<05869>_,
unto all that [are] with thee, and with all [other]: thus she was reproved
<03198> (8737)_.
So Abraham
<085>
prayed
<06419> (8691)
unto God
<0430>_:
and God
<0430>
healed
<07495> (8799)
Abimelech
<040>_,
and his wife
<0802>_,
and his maidservants
<0519>_;
and they bare
<03205> (8799)
[children].
For the LORD
<03068>
had fast
<06113> (8800)
closed up
<06113> (8804)
all the wombs
<07358>
of the house
<01004>
of Abimelech
<040>_,
because
<01697>
of Sarah
<08283>
Abraham's
<085>
wife
<0802>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
visited
<06485> (8804)
Sarah
<08283>
as he had said
<0559> (8804)_,
and the LORD
<03068>
did
<06213> (8799)
unto Sarah
<08283>
as he had spoken
<01696> (8765)_.
For Sarah
<08283>
conceived
<02029> (8799)_,
and bare
<03205> (8799)
Abraham
<085>
a son
<01121>
in his old age
<02208>_,
at the set time
<04150>
of which God
<0430>
had spoken
<01696> (8765)
to him.
And Abraham
<085>
called
<07121> (8799)
the name
<08034>
of his son
<01121>
that was born
<03205> (8737)
unto him, whom Sarah
<08283>
bare
<03205> (8804)
to him, Isaac
<03327>_.
And Abraham
<085>
circumcised
<04135> (8799)
his son
<01121>
Isaac
<03327>
being eight
<08083>
days
<03117>
old
<01121>_,
as God
<0430>
had commanded
<06680> (8765)
him.
And Abraham
<085>
was an hundred
<03967>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>_,
when his son
<01121>
Isaac
<03327>
was born
<03205> (8736)
unto him.
And Sarah
<08283>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
God
<0430>
hath made
<06213> (8804)
me to laugh
<06712>_,
[so that] all that hear
<08085> (8802)
will laugh
<06711> (8799)
with me.
And she said
<0559> (8799)_,
Who would have said
<04448> (8765)
unto Abraham
<085>_,
that Sarah
<08283>
should have given children
<01121>
suck
<03243> (8689)_?
for I have born
<03205> (8804)
[him] a son
<01121>
in his old age
<02208>_.
And the child
<03206>
grew
<01431> (8799)_,
and was weaned
<01580> (8735)_:
and Abraham
<085>
made
<06213> (8799)
a great
<01419>
feast
<04960>
the [same] day
<03117>
that Isaac
<03327>
was weaned
<01580> (8736)_.
And Sarah
<08283>
saw
<07200> (8799)
the son
<01121>
of Hagar
<01904>
the Egyptian
<04713>_,
which she had born
<03205> (8804)
unto Abraham
<085>_,
mocking
<06711> (8764)_.
Wherefore she said
<0559> (8799)
unto Abraham
<085>_,
Cast out
<01644> (8761)
this bondwoman
<0519>
and her son
<01121>_:
for the son
<01121>
of this bondwoman
<0519>
shall not be heir
<03423> (8799)
with my son
<01121>_,
[even] with Isaac
<03327>_.
And the thing
<01697>
was very
<03966>
grievous
<03415> (8799)
in Abraham's
<085>
sight
<05869>
because
<0182>
of his son
<01121>_.
And God
<0430>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Abraham
<085>_,
Let it not be grievous
<03415> (8799)
in thy sight
<05869>
because of the lad
<05288>_,
and because of thy bondwoman
<0519>_;
in all that Sarah
<08283>
hath said
<0559> (8799)
unto thee, hearken
<08085> (8798)
unto her voice
<06963>_;
for in Isaac
<03327>
shall thy seed
<02233>
be called
<07121> (8735)_.
And also of the son
<01121>
of the bondwoman
<0519>
will I make
<07760> (8799)
a nation
<01471>_,
because he [is] thy seed
<02233>_.
And Abraham
<085>
rose up early
<07925> (8686)
in the morning
<01242>_,
and took
<03947> (8799)
bread
<03899>_,
and a bottle
<02573>
of water
<04325>_,
and gave
<05414> (8799)
[it] unto Hagar
<01904>_,
putting
<07760> (8804)
[it] on her shoulder
<07926>_,
and the child
<03206>_,
and sent her away
<07971> (8762)_:
and she departed
<03212> (8799)_,
and wandered
<08582> (8799)
in the wilderness
<04057>
of Beersheba
<0884>_.
And the water
<04325>
was spent
<03615> (8799)
in
<04480>
the bottle
<02573>_,
and she cast
<07993> (8686)
the child
<03206>
under one
<0259>
of the shrubs
<07880>_.
And she went
<03212> (8799)_,
and sat her down
<03427> (8799)
over against
<05048>
[him] a good way off
<07368> (8687)_,
as it were a bowshot
<02909> (8764) <07198>_:
for she said
<0559> (8804)_,
Let me not see
<07200> (8799)
the death
<04194>
of the child
<03206>_.
And she sat
<03427> (8799)
over against [him], and lift up
<05375> (8799)
her voice
<06963>_,
and wept
<01058> (8799)_.
And God
<0430>
heard
<08085> (8804)
the voice
<06963>
of the lad
<05288>_;
and the angel
<04397>
of God
<0430>
called
<07121> (8799)
to Hagar
<01904>
out of heaven
<08064>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar
<01904>_?
fear
<03372> (8799)
not; for God
<0430>
hath heard
<08085> (8799)
the voice
<06963>
of the lad
<05288>
where he [is].
Arise
<06965> (8798)_,
lift up
<05375> (8798)
the lad
<05288>_,
and hold
<02388> (8685)
him in thine hand
<03027>_;
for I will make
<07760> (8799)
him a great
<01419>
nation
<01471>_.
And God
<0430>
opened
<06491> (8799)
her eyes
<05869>_,
and she saw
<07200> (8799)
a well
<0875>
of water
<04325>_;
and she went
<03212> (8799)_,
and filled
<04390> (8762)
the bottle
<02573>
with water
<04325>_,
and gave
<08248> (0)
the lad
<05288>
drink
<08248> (8686)_.
And God
<0430>
was with the lad
<05288>_;
and he grew
<01431> (8799)_,
and dwelt
<03427> (8799)
in the wilderness
<04057>_,
and became an archer
<07235> (8802) <07199>_.
And he dwelt
<03427> (8799)
in the wilderness
<04057>
of Paran
<06290>_:
and his mother
<0517>
took
<03947> (8799)
him a wife
<0802>
out of the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_.
And it came to pass at that time
<06256>_,
that Abimelech
<040>
and Phichol
<06369>
the chief captain
<08269>
of his host
<06635>
spake
<0559> (8799)
unto Abraham
<085>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
God
<0430>
[is] with thee in all that thou doest
<06213> (8802)_:
Now therefore swear
<07650> (8734)
unto me here
<02008>
by God
<0430>
that thou wilt not deal falsely
<08266> (8799)
with me, nor with my son
<05209>_,
nor with my son's son
<05220>_:
[but] according to the kindness
<02617>
that I have done
<06213> (8804)
unto thee, thou shalt do
<06213> (8799)
unto me, and to the land
<0776>
wherein thou hast sojourned
<01481> (8804)_.
{that thou...: Heb. if thou shalt lie unto me}
And Abraham
<085>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will swear
<07650> (8735)_.
And Abraham
<085>
reproved
<03198> (8689)
Abimelech
<040>
because
<0182>
of a well
<0875>
of water
<04325>_,
which Abimelech's
<040>
servants
<05650>
had violently taken away
<01497> (8804)_.
And Abimelech
<040>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
I wot
<03045> (8804)
not who hath done
<06213> (8804)
this thing
<01697>_:
neither
<03808>
didst thou tell
<05046> (8689)
me, neither
<03808>
yet heard
<08085> (8804)
I [of it], but
<01115>
to day
<03117>_.
And Abraham
<085>
took
<03947> (8799)
sheep
<06629>
and oxen
<01241>_,
and gave
<05414> (8799)
them unto Abimelech
<040>_;
and both of them
<08147>
made
<03772> (8799)
a covenant
<01285>_.
And Abraham
<085>
set
<05324> (8686)
seven
<07651>
ewe lambs
<03535>
of the flock
<06629>
by themselves.
And Abimelech
<040>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Abraham
<085>_,
What
<02008>
[mean] these seven
<07651>
ewe lambs
<03535>
which thou hast set
<05324> (8689)
by themselves?
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
For [these] seven
<07651>
ewe lambs
<03535>
shalt thou take
<03947> (8799)
of my hand
<03027>_,
that
<05668>
they may be a witness
<05713>
unto me, that I have digged
<02658> (8804)
this well
<0875>_.
Wherefore he called
<07121> (8804)
that place
<04725>
Beersheba
<0884>_;
because there they sware
<07650> (8738)
both of them
<08147>_.
{Beersheba: that is, The well of the oath}
Thus they made
<03772> (8799)
a covenant
<01285>
at Beersheba
<0884>_:
then Abimelech
<040>
rose up
<06965> (8799)_,
and Phichol
<06369>
the chief captain
<08269>
of his host
<06635>_,
and they returned
<07725> (8799)
into the land
<0776>
of the Philistines
<06430>_.
And [Abraham] planted
<05193> (8799)
a grove
<0815>
in Beersheba
<0884>_,
and called
<07121> (8799)
there on the name
<08034>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
the everlasting
<05769>
God
<0410>_.
{grove: or, tree}
And Abraham
<085>
sojourned
<01481> (8799)
in the Philistines
<06430>_'
land
<0776>
many
<07227>
days
<03117>_.
And it came to pass after
<0310>
these things
<01697>_,
that God
<0430>
did tempt
<05254> (8765)
Abraham
<085>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Abraham
<085>_:
and he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold, [here] I [am]. {Behold...: Heb. Behold me}
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Take now
<03947> (8798)
thy son
<01121>_,
thine only
<03173>
[son] Isaac
<03327>_,
whom thou lovest
<0157> (8804)_,
and get thee
<03212> (8798)
into the land
<0776>
of Moriah
<04179>_;
and offer him
<05927> (8685)
there for a burnt offering
<05930>
upon one
<0259>
of the mountains
<02022>
which I will tell
<0559> (8799)
thee of.
And Abraham
<085>
rose up early
<07925> (8686)
in the morning
<01242>_,
and saddled
<02280> (8799)
his ass
<02543>_,
and took
<03947> (8799)
two
<08147>
of his young men
<05288>
with him, and Isaac
<03327>
his son
<01121>_,
and clave
<01234> (8762)
the wood
<06086>
for the burnt offering
<05930>_,
and rose up
<06965> (8799)_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
unto the place
<04725>
of which God
<0430>
had told
<0559> (8804)
him.
Then on the third
<07992>
day
<03117>
Abraham
<085>
lifted up
<05375> (8799)
his eyes
<05869>_,
and saw
<07200> (8799)
the place
<04725>
afar off
<07350>_.
And Abraham
<085>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto his young men
<05288>_,
Abide
<03427> (8798)
ye here with the ass
<02543>_;
and I and the lad
<05288>
will go
<03212> (8799)
yonder
<03541>
and worship
<07812> (8691)_,
and come again
<07725> (8799)
to you.
And Abraham
<085>
took
<03947> (8799)
the wood
<06086>
of the burnt offering
<05930>_,
and laid
<07760> (8799)
[it] upon Isaac
<03327>
his son
<01121>_;
and he took
<03947> (8799)
the fire
<0784>
in his hand
<03027>_,
and a knife
<03979>_;
and they went
<03212> (8799)
both
<08147>
of them together
<03162>_.
And Isaac
<03327>
spake
<0559> (8799)
unto Abraham
<085>
his father
<01>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
My father
<01>_:
and he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Here [am] I, my son
<01121>_.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold the fire
<0784>
and the wood
<06086>_:
but where [is] the lamb
<07716>
for a burnt offering
<05930>_?
{lamb: or, kid}
And Abraham
<085>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
My son
<01121>_,
God
<0430>
will provide
<07200> (8799)
himself a lamb
<07716>
for a burnt offering
<05930>_:
so they went
<03212> (8799)
both of them
<08147>
together
<03162>_.
And they came
<0935> (8799)
to the place
<04725>
which God
<0430>
had told
<0559> (8804)
him of; and Abraham
<085>
built
<01129> (8799)
an altar
<04196>
there, and laid
<06186> (0)
the wood
<06086>
in order
<06186> (8799)_,
and bound
<06123> (8799)
Isaac
<03327>
his son
<01121>_,
and laid
<07760> (8799)
him on the altar
<04196>
upon
<04605>
the wood
<06086>_.
And Abraham
<085>
stretched forth
<07971> (8799)
his hand
<03027>_,
and took
<03947> (8799)
the knife
<03979>
to slay
<07819> (8800)
his son
<01121>_.
And the angel
<04397>
of the LORD
<03068>
called
<07121> (8799)
unto him out of heaven
<08064>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Abraham
<085>_,
Abraham
<085>_:
and he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Here [am] I.
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Lay
<07971> (8799)
not thine hand
<03027>
upon
<0413>
the lad
<05288>_,
neither do thou
<06213> (8799)
any thing
<03972>
unto him: for now
<06258>
I know
<03045> (8804)
that thou fearest
<03373>
God
<0430>_,
seeing thou hast not
<03808>
withheld
<02820> (8804)
thy son
<01121>_,
thine only
<03173>
[son] from me.
And Abraham
<085>
lifted up
<05375> (8799)
his eyes
<05869>_,
and looked
<07200> (8799)_,
and behold behind
<0310>
[him] a ram
<0352>
caught
<0270> (8737)
in a thicket
<05442>
by his horns
<07161>_:
and Abraham
<085>
went
<03212> (8799)
and took
<03947> (8799)
the ram
<0352>_,
and offered him up
<05927> (8686)
for a burnt offering
<05930>
in the stead
<08478>
of his son
<01121>_.
And Abraham
<085>
called
<07121> (8799)
the name
<08034>
of that place
<04725>
Jehovahjireh
<03070>_:
as
<0834>
it is said
<0559> (8735)
[to] this day
<03117>_,
In the mount
<02022>
of the LORD
<03068>
it shall be seen
<07200> (8735)_.
{Jehovahjireh: that is, The Lord will see, or, provide}
And the angel
<04397>
of the LORD
<03068>
called
<07121> (8799)
unto Abraham
<085>
out of heaven
<08064>
the second time
<08145>_,
And said
<0559> (8799)_,
By myself have I sworn
<07650> (8738)_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
for because
<03282> <0834>
thou hast done
<06213> (8804)
this thing
<01697>_,
and hast not
<03808>
withheld
<02820> (8804)
thy son
<01121>_,
thine only
<03173>
[son]:
That in blessing
<01288> (8763)
I will bless
<01288> (8762)
thee, and in multiplying
<07235> (8687)
I will multiply
<07235> (8686)
thy seed
<02233>
as the stars
<03556>
of the heaven
<08064>_,
and as the sand
<02344>
which [is] upon the sea
<03220>
shore
<08193>_;
and thy seed
<02233>
shall possess
<03423> (8799)
the gate
<08179>
of his enemies
<0341> (8802)_;
{shore: Heb. lip}
And in thy seed
<02233>
shall all the nations
<01471>
of the earth
<0776>
be blessed
<01288> (8694)_;
because
<0834> <06118>
thou hast obeyed
<08085> (8804)
my voice
<06963>_.
So Abraham
<085>
returned
<07725> (8799)
unto his young men
<05288>_,
and they rose up
<06965> (8799)
and went
<03212> (8799)
together
<03162>
to Beersheba
<0884>_;
and Abraham
<085>
dwelt
<03427> (8799)
at Beersheba
<0884>_.
And it came to pass after
<0310>
these things
<01697>_,
that it was told
<05046> (8714)
Abraham
<085>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Behold, Milcah
<04435>_,
she hath also born
<03205> (8804)
children
<01121>
unto thy brother
<0251>
Nahor
<05152>_;
Huz
<05780>
his firstborn
<01060>_,
and Buz
<0938>
his brother
<0251>_,
and Kemuel
<07055>
the father
<01>
of Aram
<0758>_,
And Chesed
<03777>_,
and Hazo
<02375>_,
and Pildash
<06394>_,
and Jidlaph
<03044>_,
and Bethuel
<01328>_.
And Bethuel
<01328>
begat
<03205> (8804)
Rebekah
<07259>_:
these eight
<08083>
Milcah
<04435>
did bear
<03205> (8804)
to Nahor
<05152>_,
Abraham's
<085>
brother
<0251>_.
{Rebekah: Gr. Rebecca}
And his concubine
<06370>_,
whose name
<08034>
[was] Reumah
<07208>_,
she bare
<03205> (8799)
also Tebah
<02875>_,
and Gaham
<01514>_,
and Thahash
<08477>_,
and Maachah
<04601>_.
