Genesis 17:23

Context

17:23 Abraham took his son Ishmael and every male in his household (whether born in his house or bought with money) 2  and circumcised them 3  on that very same day, just as God had told him to do.

1 tn Heb “and Abram called the name of his son whom Hagar bore, Ishmael.”

sn Whom Abram named Ishmael. Hagar must have informed Abram of what the angel had told her. See the note on the name “Ishmael” in 16:11.

2 tn Heb “Ishmael his son and all born in his house and all bought with money, every male among the men of the house of Abraham.”

3 tn Heb “circumcised the flesh of their foreskin.” The Hebrew expression is somewhat pleonastic and has been simplified in the translation.
