Genesis 21


1  And the LORD3068 visited6485 853 Sarah8283 as834 he had said,559 and the LORD3068 did6213 unto Sarah8283 as834 he had spoken.1696

2  For Sarah8283 conceived,2029 and bore3205 Abraham85 a son1121 in his old age,2208 at the set time4150 of which834 God430 had spoken1696 to him.

3  And Abraham85 called7121 853 the name8034 of his son1121 that was born3205 unto him, whom834 Sarah8283 bore3205 to him, Isaac.3327

4  And Abraham85 circumcised4135 his son1121 Isaac3327 being eight8083 days3117 old,1121 as834 God430 had commanded6680 him.

5  And Abraham85 was a hundred3967 years8141 old,1121 when 853 his son1121 Isaac3327 was born3205 unto him.

6  And Sarah8283 said,559 God430 hath made6213 me to laugh,6712 so that all3605 that hear8085 will laugh6711 with me.

7  And she said,559 Who4310 would have said4448 unto Abraham,85 that Sarah8283 should have given children suck?3243 1121 for3588 I have born3205 him a son1121 in his old age.2208

8  And the child3206 grew,1431 and was weaned:1580 and Abraham85 made6213 a great1419 feast4960 the same day3117 that 853 Isaac3327 was weaned.1580

9  And Sarah8283 saw7200 853 the son1121 of Hagar1904 the Egyptian,4713 which834 she had born3205 unto Abraham,85 mocking.6711

10  Wherefore she said559 unto Abraham,85 Cast out1644 this2063 bondwoman519 and her son:1121 for3588 the son1121 of this2063 bondwoman519 shall not3808 be heir3423 with5973 my son,1121 even with5973 Isaac.3327

11  And the thing1697 was very grievous7489 3966 in Abraham's85 sight5869 because5921 182 of his son.1121

12  And God430 said559 unto413 Abraham,85 Let it not408 be grievous7489 in thy sight5869 because of5921 the lad,5288 and because of5921 thy bondwoman;519 in all3605 that834 Sarah8283 hath said559 unto413 thee, hearken8085 unto her voice;6963 for3588 in Isaac3327 shall thy seed2233 be called.7121

13  And also1571 853 of the son1121 of the bondwoman519 will I make7760 a nation,1471 because3588 he1931 is thy seed.2233

14  And Abraham85 rose up early7925 in the morning,1242 and took3947 bread,3899 and a bottle2573 of water,4325 and gave5414 it unto413 Hagar,1904 putting7760 it on5921 her shoulder,7926 and the child,3206 and sent her away:7971 and she departed,1980 and wandered8582 in the wilderness4057 of Beer-sheba.884

15  And the water4325 was spent3615 in4480 the bottle,2573 and she cast7993 853 the child3206 under8478 one259 of the shrubs.7880

16  And she went,1980 and sat her down3427 over against4480 5048 him a good way off,7368 as it were a bowshot:2909 7198 for3588 she said,559 Let me not408 see7200 the death4194 of the child.3206 And she sat3427 over against4480 5048 him, and lifted up5375 853 her voice,6963 and wept.1058

17  And God430 heard8085 853 the voice6963 of the lad;5288 and the angel4397 of God430 called7121 to413 Hagar1904 out of4480 heaven,8064 and said559 unto her, What4100 aileth thee, Hagar?1904 fear3372 not;408 for3588 God430 hath heard8085 413 the voice6963 of the lad5288 where834 8033 he1931 is.

18  Arise,6965 lift up5375 853 the lad,5288 and hold2388 him in854 thine hand;3027 for3588 I will make7760 him a great1419 nation.1471

19  And God430 opened6491 853 her eyes,5869 and she saw7200 a well875 of water;4325 and she went,1980 and filled4390 853 the bottle2573 with water,4325 and gave 853 the lad5288 drink.8248

20  And God430 was1961 with854 the lad;5288 and he grew,1431 and dwelt3427 in the wilderness,4057 and became1961 an archer.7235 7199

21  And he dwelt3427 in the wilderness4057 of Paran:6290 and his mother517 took3947 him a wife802 out of the land4480 776 of Egypt.4714

22  And it came to pass1961 at that1931 time,6256 that Abimelech40 and Phichol6369 the chief captain8269 of his host6635 spoke559 unto413 Abraham,85 saying,559 God430 is with5973 thee in all3605 that834 thou859 doest:6213

23  Now6258 therefore swear7650 unto me here2008 by God430 that thou wilt not deal falsely8266 with me, nor with my son,5209 nor with my son's son:5220 but according to the kindness2617 that834 I have done6213 unto5973 thee, thou shalt do6213 unto5978 me, and to5973 the land776 wherein834 thou hast sojourned.1481

24  And Abraham85 said,559 I595 will swear.7650

25  And Abraham85 reproved3198 853 Abimelech40 because of5921 182 a well875 of water,4325 which834 Abimelech's40 servants5650 had violently taken away.1497

26  And Abimelech40 said,559 I know3045 not3808 who4310 hath done6213 853 this2088 thing:1697 neither3808 didst thou859 tell5046 me, neither3808 yet1571 heard8085 I595 of it, but1115 today.3117

27  And Abraham85 took3947 sheep6629 and oxen,1241 and gave5414 them unto Abimelech;40 and both8147 of them made3772 a covenant.1285

28  And Abraham85 set5324 853 seven7651 ewe lambs3535 of the flock6629 by themselves.905

29  And Abimelech40 said559 unto413 Abraham,85 What4100 mean these428 seven7651 ewe lambs3535 which834 thou hast set5324 by themselves?905

30  And he said,559 For3588 these 853 seven7651 ewe lambs3535 shalt thou take3947 of my hand,4480 3027 that5668 they may be1961 a witness5713 unto me, that3588 I have digged2658 853 this2088 well.875

31  Wherefore5921 3651 he called7121 that1931 place4725 Beer-sheba;884 because3588 there8033 they swore7650 both8147 of them.

32  Thus they made3772 a covenant1285 at Beer-sheba:884 then Abimelech40 rose up,6965 and Phichol6369 the chief captain8269 of his host,6635 and they returned7725 into413 the land776 of the Philistines.6430

33  And Abraham planted5193 a grove815 in Beer-sheba,884 and called7121 there8033 on the name8034 of the LORD,3068 the everlasting5769 God.410

34  And Abraham85 sojourned1481 in the Philistines'6430 land776 many7227 days.3117


1 καὶ κύριος ἐπεσκέψατο τὴν Σαρραν καθὰ εἶπεν καὶ ἐποίησεν κύριος τῇ Σαρρα καθὰ ἐλάλησεν

2 καὶ συλλαβοῦσα ἔτεκεν Σαρρα τῷ Αβρααμ υἱὸν εἰς τὸ γῆρας εἰς τὸν καιρόν καθὰ ἐλάλησεν αὐτῷ κύριος

3 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν Αβρααμ τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ τοῦ γενομένου αὐτῷ ὃν ἔτεκεν αὐτῷ Σαρρα Ισαακ

4 περιέτεμεν δὲ Αβρααμ τὸν Ισαακ τῇ ὀγδόῃ ἡμέρᾳ καθὰ ἐνετείλατο αὐτῷ ὁ θεός

5 Αβρααμ δὲ ἦν ἑκατὸν ἐτῶν ἡνίκα ἐγένετο αὐτῷ Ισαακ ὁ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ

6 εἶπεν δὲ Σαρρα γέλωτά μοι ἐποίησεν κύριος ὃς γὰρ ἂν ἀκούσῃ συγχαρεῖταί μοι

7 καὶ εἶπεν τίς ἀναγγελεῖ τῷ Αβρααμ ὅτι θηλάζει παιδίον Σαρρα ὅτι ἔτεκον υἱὸν ἐν τῷ γήρει μου

8 καὶ ηὐξήθη τὸ παιδίον καὶ ἀπεγαλακτίσθη καὶ ἐποίησεν Αβρααμ δοχὴν μεγάλην ᾗ ἡμέρᾳ ἀπεγαλακτίσθη Ισαακ ὁ υἱὸς αὐτοῦ

9 ἰδοῦσα δὲ Σαρρα τὸν υἱὸν Αγαρ τῆς Αἰγυπτίας ὃς ἐγένετο τῷ Αβρααμ παίζοντα μετὰ Ισαακ τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτῆς

10 καὶ εἶπεν τῷ Αβρααμ ἔκβαλε τὴν παιδίσκην ταύτην καὶ τὸν υἱὸν αὐτῆς οὐ γὰρ κληρονομήσει ὁ υἱὸς τῆς παιδίσκης ταύτης μετὰ τοῦ υἱοῦ μου Ισαακ

11 σκληρὸν δὲ ἐφάνη τὸ ῥῆμα σφόδρα ἐναντίον Αβρααμ περὶ τοῦ υἱοῦ αὐτοῦ

12 εἶπεν δὲ ὁ θεὸς τῷ Αβρααμ μὴ σκληρὸν ἔστω τὸ ῥῆμα ἐναντίον σου περὶ τοῦ παιδίου καὶ περὶ τῆς παιδίσκης πάντα ὅσα ἐὰν εἴπῃ σοι Σαρρα ἄκουε τῆς φωνῆς αὐτῆς ὅτι ἐν Ισαακ κληθήσεταί σοι σπέρμα

13 καὶ τὸν υἱὸν δὲ τῆς παιδίσκης ταύτης εἰς ἔθνος μέγα ποιήσω αὐτόν ὅτι σπέρμα σόν ἐστιν

14 ἀνέστη δὲ Αβρααμ τὸ πρωὶ καὶ ἔλαβεν ἄρτους καὶ ἀσκὸν ὕδατος καὶ ἔδωκεν Αγαρ καὶ ἐπέθηκεν ἐπὶ τὸν ὦμον καὶ τὸ παιδίον καὶ ἀπέστειλεν αὐτήν ἀπελθοῦσα δὲ ἐπλανᾶτο τὴν ἔρημον κατὰ τὸ φρέαρ τοῦ ὅρκου

15 ἐξέλιπεν δὲ τὸ ὕδωρ ἐκ τοῦ ἀσκοῦ καὶ ἔρριψεν τὸ παιδίον ὑποκάτω μιᾶς ἐλάτης

16 ἀπελθοῦσα δὲ ἐκάθητο ἀπέναντι αὐτοῦ μακρόθεν ὡσεὶ τόξου βολήν εἶπεν γάρ οὐ μὴ ἴδω τὸν θάνατον τοῦ παιδίου μου καὶ ἐκάθισεν ἀπέναντι αὐτοῦ ἀναβοῆσαν δὲ τὸ παιδίον ἔκλαυσεν

17 εἰσήκουσεν δὲ ὁ θεὸς τῆς φωνῆς τοῦ παιδίου ἐκ τοῦ τόπου οὗ ἦν καὶ ἐκάλεσεν ἄγγελος τοῦ θεοῦ τὴν Αγαρ ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῇ τί ἐστιν Αγαρ μὴ φοβοῦ ἐπακήκοεν γὰρ ὁ θεὸς τῆς φωνῆς τοῦ παιδίου σου ἐκ τοῦ τόπου οὗ ἐστιν

18 ἀνάστηθι λαβὲ τὸ παιδίον καὶ κράτησον τῇ χειρί σου αὐτό εἰς γὰρ ἔθνος μέγα ποιήσω αὐτόν

19 καὶ ἀνέῳξεν ὁ θεὸς τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτῆς καὶ εἶδεν φρέαρ ὕδατος ζῶντος καὶ ἐπορεύθη καὶ ἔπλησεν τὸν ἀσκὸν ὕδατος καὶ ἐπότισεν τὸ παιδίον

20 καὶ ἦν ὁ θεὸς μετὰ τοῦ παιδίου καὶ ηὐξήθη καὶ κατῴκησεν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ ἐγένετο δὲ τοξότης

21 καὶ κατῴκησεν ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ τῇ Φαραν καὶ ἔλαβεν αὐτῷ ἡ μήτηρ γυναῖκα ἐκ γῆς Αἰγύπτου

22 ἐγένετο δὲ ἐν τῷ καιρῷ ἐκείνῳ καὶ εἶπεν Αβιμελεχ καὶ Οχοζαθ ὁ νυμφαγωγὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ Φικολ ὁ ἀρχιστράτηγος τῆς δυνάμεως αὐτοῦ πρὸς Αβρααμ λέγων ὁ θεὸς μετὰ σοῦ ἐν πᾶσιν οἷς ἐὰν ποιῇς

23 νῦν οὖν ὄμοσόν μοι τὸν θεὸν μὴ ἀδικήσειν με μηδὲ τὸ σπέρμα μου μηδὲ τὸ ὄνομά μου ἀλλὰ κατὰ τὴν δικαιοσύνην ἣν ἐποίησα μετὰ σοῦ ποιήσεις μετ᾽ ἐμοῦ καὶ τῇ γῇ ᾗ σὺ παρῴκησας ἐν αὐτῇ

24 καὶ εἶπεν Αβρααμ ἐγὼ ὀμοῦμαι

25 καὶ ἤλεγξεν Αβρααμ τὸν Αβιμελεχ περὶ τῶν φρεάτων τοῦ ὕδατος ὧν ἀφείλαντο οἱ παῖδες τοῦ Αβιμελεχ

26 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ Αβιμελεχ οὐκ ἔγνων τίς ἐποίησεν τὸ πρᾶγμα τοῦτο οὐδὲ σύ μοι ἀπήγγειλας οὐδὲ ἐγὼ ἤκουσα ἀλλ᾽ ἢ σήμερον

27 καὶ ἔλαβεν Αβρααμ πρόβατα καὶ μόσχους καὶ ἔδωκεν τῷ Αβιμελεχ καὶ διέθεντο ἀμφότεροι διαθήκην

28 καὶ ἔστησεν Αβρααμ ἑπτὰ ἀμνάδας προβάτων μόνας

29 καὶ εἶπεν Αβιμελεχ τῷ Αβρααμ τί εἰσιν αἱ ἑπτὰ ἀμνάδες τῶν προβάτων τούτων ἃς ἔστησας μόνας

30 καὶ εἶπεν Αβρααμ ὅτι τὰς ἑπτὰ ἀμνάδας ταύτας λήμψῃ παρ᾽ ἐμοῦ ἵνα ὦσίν μοι εἰς μαρτύριον ὅτι ἐγὼ ὤρυξα τὸ φρέαρ τοῦτο

31 διὰ τοῦτο ἐπωνόμασεν τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ τόπου ἐκείνου Φρέαρ ὁρκισμοῦ ὅτι ἐκεῖ ὤμοσαν ἀμφότεροι

32 καὶ διέθεντο διαθήκην ἐν τῷ φρέατι τοῦ ὅρκου ἀνέστη δὲ Αβιμελεχ καὶ Οχοζαθ ὁ νυμφαγωγὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ Φικολ ὁ ἀρχιστράτηγος τῆς δυνάμεως αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπέστρεψαν εἰς τὴν γῆν τῶν Φυλιστιιμ

33 καὶ ἐφύτευσεν Αβρααμ ἄρουραν ἐπὶ τῷ φρέατι τοῦ ὅρκου καὶ ἐπεκαλέσατο ἐκεῖ τὸ ὄνομα κυρίου θεὸς αἰώνιος

34 παρῴκησεν δὲ Αβρααμ ἐν τῇ γῇ τῶν Φυλιστιιμ ἡμέρας πολλάς

1 Visitavit autem Dominus Saram, sicut promiserat: et implevit quæ locutus est.

2 Concepitque et peperit filium in senectute sua, tempore quo prædixerat ei Deus.

3 Vocavitque Abraham nomen filii sui, quem genuit ei Sara, Isaac:

4 et circumcidit eum octavo die, sicut præceperat ei Deus,

5 cum centum esset annorum: hac quippe ætate patris, natus est Isaac.

6 Dixitque Sara: Risum fecit mihi Deus: quicumque audierit, corridebit mihi.

7 Rursumque ait: Quis auditurus crederet Abraham quod Sara lactaret filium, quem peperit et jam seni?

8 Crevit igitur puer, et ablactatus est: fecitque Abraham grande convivium in die ablactationis ejus.

9 Cumque vidisset Sara filium Agar Ægyptiæ ludentem cum Isaac filio suo, dixit ad Abraham:

10 Ejice ancillam hanc, et filium ejus: non enim erit hæres filius ancillæ cum filio meo Isaac.

11 Dure accepit hoc Abraham pro filio suo.

12 Cui dixit Deus: Non tibi videatur asperum super puero, et super ancilla tua: omnia quæ dixerit tibi Sara, audi vocem ejus: quia in Isaac vocabitur tibi semen.

13 Sed et filium ancillæ faciam in gentem magnam, quia semen tuum est.

14 Surrexit itaque Abraham mane, et tollens panem et utrem aquæ, imposuit scapulæ ejus, tradiditque puerum, et dimisit eam. Quæ cum abiisset, errabat in solitudine Bersabee.

15 Cumque consumpta esset aqua in utre, abjecit puerum subter unam arborum, quæ ibi erant.

16 Et abiit, seditque e regione procul quantum potest arcus jacere: dixit enim: Non videbo morientem puerum: et sedens contra, levavit vocem suam et flevit.

17 Exaudivit autem Deus vocem pueri: vocavitque angelus Dei Agar de cælo, dicens: Quid agis Agar? noli timere: exaudivit enim Deus vocem pueri de loco in quo est.

18 Surge, tolle puerum, et tene manum illius: quia in gentem magnam faciam eum.

19 Aperuitque oculos ejus Deus: quæ videns puteum aquæ, abiit, et implevit utrem, deditque puero bibere.

20 Et fuit cum eo: qui crevit, et moratus est in solitudine, factusque est juvenis sagittarius.

21 Habitavitque in deserto Pharan, et accepit illi mater sua uxorem de terra Ægypti.

22 Eodem tempore dixit Abimelech, et Phicol princeps exercitus ejus, ad Abraham: Deus tecum est in universis quæ agis.

23 Jura ergo per Deum, ne noceas mihi, et posteris meis, stirpique meæ: sed juxta misericordiam, quam feci tibi, facies mihi, et terræ in qua versatus es advena.

24 Dixitque Abraham: Ego jurabo.

25 Et increpavit Abimelech propter puteum aquæ quem vi abstulerunt servi ejus.

26 Responditque Abimelech: Nescivi quis fecerit hanc rem: sed et tu non indicasti mihi, et ego non audivi præter hodie.

27 Tulit itaque Abraham oves et boves, et dedit Abimelech: percusseruntque ambo fœdus.

28 Et statuit Abraham septem agnas gregis seorsum.

29 Cui dixit Abimelech: Quid sibi volunt septem agnæ istæ, quas stare fecisti seorsum?

30 At ille: Septem, inquit, agnas accipies de manu mea: ut sint mihi in testimonium, quoniam ego fodi puteum istum.

31 Idcirco vocatus est locus ille Bersabee: quia ibi uterque juravit.

32 Et inierunt fœdus pro puteo juramenti.

33 Surrexit autem Abimelech, et Phicol princeps exercitus ejus, reversique sunt in terram Palæstinorum. Abraham vero plantavit nemus in Bersabee, et invocavit ibi nomen Domini Dei æterni.

34 Et fuit colonus terræ Palæstinorum diebus multis.
