Genesis 26:1-35

And there was a famine
<07458>
in the land
<0776>_,
beside
<0905>
the first
<07223>
famine
<07458>
that was in the days
<03117>
of Abraham
<085>_.
And Isaac
<03327>
went
<03212> (8799)
unto Abimelech
<040>
king
<04428>
of the Philistines
<06430>
unto Gerar
<01642>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
appeared
<07200> (8735)
unto him, and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Go not down
<03381> (8799)
into Egypt
<04714>_;
dwell
<07931> (8798)
in the land
<0776>
which I shall tell
<0559> (8799)
thee of:
Sojourn
<01481> (8798)
in this land
<0776>_,
and I will be with thee, and will bless
<01288> (8762)
thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed
<02233>_,
I will give
<05414> (8799)
all these
<0411>
countries
<0776>_,
and I will perform
<06965> (8689)
the oath
<07621>
which I sware
<07650> (8738)
unto Abraham
<085>
thy father
<01>_;
And I will make
<07235> (0)
thy seed
<02233>
to multiply
<07235> (8689)
as the stars
<03556>
of heaven
<08064>_,
and will give
<05414> (8804)
unto thy seed
<02233>
all these
<0411>
countries
<0776>_;
and in thy seed
<02233>
shall all the nations
<01471>
of the earth
<0776>
be blessed
<01288> (8694)_;
Because
<06118>
that Abraham
<085>
obeyed
<08085> (8804)
my voice
<06963>_,
and kept
<08104> (8799)
my charge
<04931>_,
my commandments
<04687>_,
my statutes
<02708>_,
and my laws
<08451>_.
And Isaac
<03327>
dwelt
<03427> (8799)
in Gerar
<01642>_:
And the men
<0582>
of the place
<04725>
asked
<07592> (8799)
[him] of his wife
<0802>_;
and he said
<0559> (8799)_,
She [is] my sister
<0269>_:
for he feared
<03372> (8804)
to say
<0559> (8800)_,
[She is] my wife
<0802>_;
lest, [said he], the men
<0582>
of the place
<04725>
should kill
<02026> (8799)
me for Rebekah
<07259>_;
because she [was] fair
<02896>
to look upon
<04758>_.
And it came to pass, when he had been there a long
<0748> (8804)
time
<03117>_,
that Abimelech
<040>
king
<04428>
of the Philistines
<06430>
looked out
<08259> (8686)
at
<01157>
a window
<02474>_,
and saw
<07200> (8799)_,
and, behold, Isaac
<03327>
[was] sporting
<06711> (8764)
with Rebekah
<07259>
his wife
<0802>_.
And Abimelech
<040>
called
<07121> (8799)
Isaac
<03327>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold, of a surety
<0389>
she [is] thy wife
<0802>_:
and how saidst
<0559> (8804)
thou, She [is] my sister
<0269>_?
And Isaac
<03327>
said
<0559> (8799)
unto him, Because I said
<0559> (8804)_,
Lest I die
<04191> (8799)
for her.
And Abimelech
<040>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
What [is] this thou hast done
<06213> (8804)
unto us? one
<0259>
of the people
<05971>
might lightly
<04592>
have lien
<07901> (8804)
with thy wife
<0802>_,
and thou shouldest have brought
<0935> (8689)
guiltiness
<0817>
upon us.
And Abimelech
<040>
charged
<06680> (8762)
all [his] people
<05971>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
He that toucheth
<05060> (8802)
this man
<0376>
or his wife
<0802>
shall surely
<04191> (8800)
be put to death
<04191> (8714)_.
Then Isaac
<03327>
sowed
<02232> (8799)
in that land
<0776>_,
and received
<04672> (8799)
in the same year
<08141>
an hundredfold
<03967> <08180>_:
and the LORD
<03068>
blessed
<01288> (8762)
him. {received: Heb. found}
And the man
<0376>
waxed great
<01431> (8799)_,
and went
<03212> (8799)
forward
<01980> (8800)_,
and grew
<01432>
until he became
<01431> (0)
very
<03966>
great
<01431> (8804)_:
{went...: Heb. went going}
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}
And Esau
<06215>
was forty
<0705>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>
when he took
<03947> (8799)
to wife
<0802>
Judith
<03067>
the daughter
<01323>
of Beeri
<0882>
the Hittite
<02850>_,
and Bashemath
<01315>
the daughter
<01323>
of Elon
<0356>
the Hittite
<02850>_:
Which were a grief
<04786>
of mind
<07307>
unto Isaac
<03327>
and to Rebekah
<07259>_.
{a grief...: Heb. bitterness of spirit}
