Genesis 26:14-33

For he had possession
<04735>
of flocks
<06629>_,
and possession
<04735>
of herds
<01241>_,
and great store
<07227>
of servants
<05657>_:
and the Philistines
<06430>
envied
<07065> (8762)
him. {servants: or, husbandry}
For all the wells
<0875>
which his father's
<01>
servants
<05650>
had digged
<02658> (8804)
in the days
<03117>
of Abraham
<085>
his father
<01>_,
the Philistines
<06430>
had stopped
<05640> (8765)
them, and filled
<04390> (8762)
them with earth
<06083>_.
And Abimelech
<040>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto Isaac
<03327>_,
Go
<03212> (8798)
from us; for thou art much
<03966>
mightier
<06105> (8804)
than we.
And Isaac
<03327>
departed
<03212> (8799)
thence, and pitched his tent
<02583> (8799)
in the valley
<05158>
of Gerar
<01642>_,
and dwelt
<03427> (8799)
there
<08033>_.
And Isaac
<03327>
digged
<02658> (8799)
again
<07725> (8799)
the wells
<0875>
of water
<04325>_,
which they had digged
<02658> (8804)
in the days
<03117>
of Abraham
<085>
his father
<01>_;
for the Philistines
<06430>
had stopped
<05640> (8762)
them after
<0310>
the death
<04194>
of Abraham
<085>_:
and he called
<07121> (8799)
their names
<08034>
after the names
<08034>
by which
<0834>
his father
<01>
had called
<07121> (8804)
them.
And Isaac's
<03327>
servants
<05650>
digged
<02658> (8799)
in the valley
<05158>_,
and found
<04672> (8799)
there a well
<0875>
of springing
<02416>
water
<04325>_.
{springing: Heb. living}
And the herdmen
<07462> (8802)
of Gerar
<01642>
did strive
<07378> (8799)
with Isaac's
<03327>
herdmen
<07462> (8802)_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
The water
<04325>
[is] ours: and he called
<07121> (8799)
the name
<08034>
of the well
<0875>
Esek
<06230>_;
because they strove
<06229> (8694)
with him. {Esek: that is, Contention}
And they digged
<02658> (8799)
another
<0312>
well
<0875>_,
and strove
<07378> (8799)
for that also: and he called
<07121> (8799)
the name of it
<08034>
Sitnah
<07856>_.
{Sitnah: that is, Hatred}
And he removed
<06275> (8686)
from thence, and digged
<02658> (8799)
another
<0312>
well
<0875>_;
and for that they strove
<07378> (8804)
not: and he called
<07121> (8799)
the name of it
<08034>
Rehoboth
<07344>_;
and he said
<0559> (8799)_,
For now
<06258>
the LORD
<03068>
hath made room
<07337> (8689)
for us, and we shall be fruitful
<06509> (8804)
in the land
<0776>_.
{Rehoboth: that is Room}
And he went up
<05927> (8799)
from thence to Beersheba
<0884>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
appeared
<07200> (8735)
unto him the same night
<03915>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
I [am] the God
<0430>
of Abraham
<085>
thy father
<01>_:
fear
<03372> (8799)
not, for I [am] with
<0854>
thee, and will bless
<01288> (8765)
thee, and multiply
<07235> (8689)
thy seed
<02233>
for my servant
<05650>
Abraham's
<085>
sake.
And he builded
<01129> (8799)
an altar
<04196>
there, and called
<07121> (8799)
upon the name
<08034>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and pitched
<05186> (8799)
his tent
<0168>
there: and there Isaac's
<03327>
servants
<05650>
digged
<03738> (8799)
a well
<0875>_.
Then Abimelech
<040>
went
<01980> (8804)
to him from Gerar
<01642>_,
and Ahuzzath
<0276>
one of his friends
<04828>_,
and Phichol
<06369>
the chief captain
<08269>
of his army
<06635>_.
And Isaac
<03327>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, Wherefore
<04069>
come
<0935> (8804)
ye to me, seeing ye hate
<08130> (8804)
me, and have sent me away
<07971> (8762)
from you?
And they said
<0559> (8799)_,
We saw
<07200> (8804)
certainly
<07200> (8800)
that the LORD
<03068>
was with thee: and we said
<0559> (8799)_,
Let there be now an oath
<0423>
betwixt
<0996>
us, [even] betwixt
<0996>
us and thee, and let us make
<03772> (8799)
a covenant
<01285>
with thee; {We saw...: Heb. Seeing we saw}
That thou wilt do
<06213> (8799)
us no hurt
<07451>_,
as we have not touched
<05060> (8804)
thee, and as we have done
<06213> (8804)
unto thee nothing but
<07535>
good
<02896>_,
and have sent thee away
<07971> (8762)
in peace
<07965>_:
thou [art] now
<06258>
the blessed
<01288> (8803)
of the LORD
<03068>_.
{That...: Heb. If thou shalt}
And he made
<06213> (8799)
them a feast
<04960>_,
and they did eat
<0398> (8799)
and drink
<08354> (8799)_.
And they rose up betimes
<07925> (8686)
in the morning
<01242>_,
and sware
<07650> (8735)
one
<0376>
to another
<0251>_:
and Isaac
<03327>
sent them away
<07971> (8762)_,
and they departed
<03212> (8799)
from him in peace
<07965>_.
And it came to pass the same day
<03117>_,
that Isaac's
<03327>
servants
<05650>
came
<0935> (8799)_,
and told
<05046> (8686)
him concerning
<0182>
the well
<0875>
which they had digged
<02658> (8804)_,
and said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, We have found
<04672> (8804)
water
<04325>_.
And he called
<07121> (8799)
it Shebah
<07656>_:
therefore the name
<08034>
of the city
<05892>
[is] Beersheba
<0884>
unto this day
<03117>_.
{Shebah: That is, an oath} {Beersheba: that is, the well of the oath}
