Genesis 17:23-26

Context

17:23 Abraham took his son Ishmael and every male in his household (whether born in his house or bought with money) 1  and circumcised them 2  on that very same day, just as God had told him to do. 17:24 Now Abraham was 99 years old 3  when he was circumcised; 4  17:25 his son Ishmael was thirteen years old 5  when he was circumcised. 17:26 Abraham and his son Ishmael were circumcised on the very same day.

1 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.”

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

3 tn Heb “the son of ninety-nine years.”

4 tn Heb “circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin” (also in v. 25).

5 tn Heb “the son of thirteen years.”
