Genesis 26


1  And there was1961 a famine7458 in the land,776 beside4480 905 the first7223 famine7458 that834 was1961 in the days3117 of Abraham.85 And Isaac3327 went1980 unto413 Abimelech40 king4428 of the Philistines6430 unto Gerar.1642

2  And the LORD3068 appeared7200 unto413 him, and said,559 Go not down3381 408 into Egypt;4714 dwell7931 in the land776 which834 I shall tell559 thee of:413

3  Sojourn1481 in this2063 land,776 and I will be1961 with5973 thee, and will bless1288 thee; for3588 unto thee, and unto thy seed,2233 I will give5414 853 all3605 these411 countries,776 and I will perform6965 853 the oath7621 which834 I swore7650 unto Abraham85 thy father;1

4  And I will make 853 thy seed2233 to multiply7235 as the stars3556 of heaven,8064 and will give5414 unto thy seed2233 853 all3605 these411 countries;776 and in thy seed2233 shall all3605 the nations1471 of the earth776 be blessed;1288

5  Because6118 that834 Abraham85 obeyed8085 my voice,6963 and kept8104 my charge,4931 my commandments,4687 my statutes,2708 and my laws.8451

6  And Isaac3327 dwelt3427 in Gerar:1642

7  And the men376 of the place4725 asked7592 him of his wife;802 and he said,559 She1931 is my sister:269 for3588 he feared3372 to say,559 She is my wife;802 lest,6435 said he, the men376 of the place4725 should kill2026 me for5921 Rebekah;7259 because3588 she1931 was fair2896 to look upon.4758

8  And it came to pass,1961 when3588 he had been there8033 a long748 time,3117 that Abimelech40 king4428 of the Philistines6430 looked out8259 at1157 a window,2474 and saw,7200 and, behold,2009 Isaac3327 was sporting6711 with 853 Rebekah7259 his wife.802

9  And Abimelech40 called7121 Isaac,3327 and said,559 Behold,2009 of a surety389 she1931 is thy wife:802 and how349 saidst559 thou, She1931 is my sister?269 And Isaac3327 said559 unto413 him, Because3588 I said,559 Lest6435 I die4191 for5921 her.

10  And Abimelech40 said,559 What4100 is this2063 thou hast done6213 unto us? one259 of the people5971 might lightly4592 have lain7901 with854 thy wife,802 and thou shouldest have brought935 guiltiness817 upon5921 us.

11  And Abimelech40 charged6680 853 all3605 his people,5971 saying,559 He that toucheth5060 this2088 man376 or his wife802 shall surely be put to death.4191 4191

12  Then Isaac3327 sowed2232 in that1931 land,776 and received4672 in the same1931 year8141 a hundredfold:3967 8180 and the LORD3068 blessed1288 him.

13  And the man376 waxed great,1431 and went1980 forward,1980 and grew1432 until5704 3588 he became very great:1431 3966

14  For he had1961 possession4735 of flocks,6629 and possession4735 of herds,1241 and great store7227 of servants:5657 and the Philistines6430 envied7065 him.

15  For all3605 the wells875 which834 his father's1 servants5650 had digged2658 in the days3117 of Abraham85 his father,1 the Philistines6430 had stopped5640 them, and filled4390 them with earth.6083

16  And Abimelech40 said559 unto413 Isaac,3327 Go1980 from4480 5973 us; for3588 thou art much mightier6105 3966 than4480 we.

17  And Isaac3327 departed1980 thence,4480 8033 and pitched his tent2583 in the valley5158 of Gerar,1642 and dwelt3427 there.8033

18  And Isaac3327 digged2658 again7725 853 the wells875 of water,4325 which834 they had digged2658 in the days3117 of Abraham85 his father;1 for the Philistines6430 had stopped5640 them after310 the death4194 of Abraham:85 and he called7121 their names8034 after the names8034 by which834 his father1 had called7121 them.

19  And Isaac's3327 servants5650 digged2658 in the valley,5158 and found4672 there8033 a well875 of springing2416 water.4325

20  And the herdsmen7462 of Gerar1642 did strive7378 with5973 Isaac's3327 herdsmen,7462 saying,559 The water4325 is ours: and he called7121 the name8034 of the well875 Esek;6230 because3588 they strove6229 with5973 him.

21  And they digged2658 another312 well,875 and strove7378 for5921 that also:1571 and he called7121 the name8034 of it Sitnah.7856

22  And he removed6275 from thence,4480 8033 and digged2658 another312 well;875 and for5921 that they strove7378 not:3808 and he called7121 the name8034 of it Rehoboth;7344 and he said,559 For3588 now6258 the LORD3068 hath made room7337 for us, and we shall be fruitful6509 in the land.776

23  And he went up5927 from thence4480 8033 to Beer-sheba.884

24  And the LORD3068 appeared7200 unto413 him the same1931 night,3915 and said,559 I595 am the God430 of Abraham85 thy father:1 fear3372 not,408 for3588 I595 am with854 thee, and will bless1288 thee, and multiply7235 853 thy seed2233 for5668 my servant5650 Abraham's85 sake.

25  And he built1129 an altar4196 there,8033 and called7121 upon the name8034 of the LORD,3068 and pitched5186 his tent168 there:8033 and there8033 Isaac's3327 servants5650 digged3738 a well.875

26  Then Abimelech40 went1980 to413 him from Gerar,4480 1642 and Ahuzzath276 one of his friends,4828 and Phichol6369 the chief captain8269 of his army.6635

27  And Isaac3327 said559 unto413 them, Wherefore4069 come935 ye to413 me, seeing ye859 hate8130 me, and have sent me away7971 from4480 you?

28  And they said,559 We saw certainly7200 7200 that3588 the LORD3068 was1961 with5973 thee: and we said,559 Let there be1961 now4994 an oath423 between996 us, even between996 us and thee, and let us make3772 a covenant1285 with5973 thee;

29  That518 thou wilt do6213 us no hurt,7451 as834 we have not3808 touched5060 thee, and as834 we have done6213 unto5973 thee nothing but7535 good,2896 and have sent thee away7971 in peace:7965 thou859 art now6258 the blessed1288 of the LORD.3068

30  And he made6213 them a feast,4960 and they did eat398 and drink.8354

31  And they rose up quickly7925 in the morning,1242 and swore7650 one376 to another:251 and Isaac3327 sent them away,7971 and they departed1980 from4480 854 him in peace.7965

32  And it came to pass1961 the same1931 day,3117 that Isaac's3327 servants5650 came,935 and told5046 him concerning5921 182 the well875 which834 they had digged,2658 and said559 unto him, We have found4672 water.4325

33  And he called7121 it Shebah:7656 therefore5921 3651 the name8034 of the city5892 is Beer-sheba884 unto5704 this2088 day.3117

34  And Esau6215 was1961 forty705 years8141 old1121 when he took3947 to wife802 853 Judith3067 the daughter1323 of Beeri882 the Hittite,2850 and Bashemath1315 the daughter1323 of Elon356 the Hittite:2850

35  Which were1961 a grief4786 of mind7307 unto Isaac3327 and to Rebekah.7259


1 ἐγένετο δὲ λιμὸς ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς χωρὶς τοῦ λιμοῦ τοῦ πρότερον ὃς ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ χρόνῳ τῷ Αβρααμ ἐπορεύθη δὲ Ισαακ πρὸς Αβιμελεχ βασιλέα Φυλιστιιμ εἰς Γεραρα

2 ὤφθη δὲ αὐτῷ κύριος καὶ εἶπεν μὴ καταβῇς εἰς Αἴγυπτον κατοίκησον δὲ ἐν τῇ γῇ ᾗ ἄν σοι εἴπω

3 καὶ παροίκει ἐν τῇ γῇ ταύτῃ καὶ ἔσομαι μετὰ σοῦ καὶ εὐλογήσω σε σοὶ γὰρ καὶ τῷ σπέρματί σου δώσω πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν ταύτην καὶ στήσω τὸν ὅρκον μου ὃν ὤμοσα Αβρααμ τῷ πατρί σου

4 καὶ πληθυνῶ τὸ σπέρμα σου ὡς τοὺς ἀστέρας τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ δώσω τῷ σπέρματί σου πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν ταύτην καὶ ἐνευλογηθήσονται ἐν τῷ σπέρματί σου πάντα τὰ ἔθνη τῆς γῆς

5 ἀνθ᾽ ὧν ὑπήκουσεν Αβρααμ ὁ πατήρ σου τῆς ἐμῆς φωνῆς καὶ ἐφύλαξεν τὰ προστάγματά μου καὶ τὰς ἐντολάς μου καὶ τὰ δικαιώματά μου καὶ τὰ νόμιμά μου

6 καὶ κατῴκησεν Ισαακ ἐν Γεραροις

7 ἐπηρώτησαν δὲ οἱ ἄνδρες τοῦ τόπου περὶ Ρεβεκκας τῆς γυναικὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ εἶπεν ἀδελφή μού ἐστιν ἐφοβήθη γὰρ εἰπεῖν ὅτι γυνή μού ἐστιν μήποτε ἀποκτείνωσιν αὐτὸν οἱ ἄνδρες τοῦ τόπου περὶ Ρεβεκκας ὅτι ὡραία τῇ ὄψει ἦν

8 ἐγένετο δὲ πολυχρόνιος ἐκεῖ παρακύψας δὲ Αβιμελεχ ὁ βασιλεὺς Γεραρων διὰ τῆς θυρίδος εἶδεν τὸν Ισαακ παίζοντα μετὰ Ρεβεκκας τῆς γυναικὸς αὐτοῦ

9 ἐκάλεσεν δὲ Αβιμελεχ τὸν Ισαακ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ ἄρα γε γυνή σού ἐστιν τί ὅτι εἶπας ἀδελφή μού ἐστιν εἶπεν δὲ αὐτῷ Ισαακ εἶπα γάρ μήποτε ἀποθάνω δι᾽ αὐτήν

10 εἶπεν δὲ αὐτῷ Αβιμελεχ τί τοῦτο ἐποίησας ἡμῖν μικροῦ ἐκοιμήθη τις τοῦ γένους μου μετὰ τῆς γυναικός σου καὶ ἐπήγαγες ἐφ᾽ ἡμᾶς ἄγνοιαν

11 συνέταξεν δὲ Αβιμελεχ παντὶ τῷ λαῷ αὐτοῦ λέγων πᾶς ὁ ἁπτόμενος τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τούτου ἢ τῆς γυναικὸς αὐτοῦ θανάτου ἔνοχος ἔσται

12 ἔσπειρεν δὲ Ισαακ ἐν τῇ γῇ ἐκείνῃ καὶ εὗρεν ἐν τῷ ἐνιαυτῷ ἐκείνῳ ἑκατοστεύουσαν κριθήν εὐλόγησεν δὲ αὐτὸν κύριος

13 καὶ ὑψώθη ὁ ἄνθρωπος καὶ προβαίνων μείζων ἐγίνετο ἕως οὗ μέγας ἐγένετο σφόδρα

14 ἐγένετο δὲ αὐτῷ κτήνη προβάτων καὶ κτήνη βοῶν καὶ γεώργια πολλά ἐζήλωσαν δὲ αὐτὸν οἱ Φυλιστιιμ

15 καὶ πάντα τὰ φρέατα ἃ ὤρυξαν οἱ παῖδες τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ χρόνῳ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ἐνέφραξαν αὐτὰ οἱ Φυλιστιιμ καὶ ἔπλησαν αὐτὰ γῆς

16 εἶπεν δὲ Αβιμελεχ πρὸς Ισαακ ἄπελθε ἀφ᾽ ἡμῶν ὅτι δυνατώτερος ἡμῶν ἐγένου σφόδρα

17 καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ἐκεῖθεν Ισαακ καὶ κατέλυσεν ἐν τῇ φάραγγι Γεραρων καὶ κατῴκησεν ἐκεῖ

18 καὶ πάλιν Ισαακ ὤρυξεν τὰ φρέατα τοῦ ὕδατος ἃ ὤρυξαν οἱ παῖδες Αβρααμ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐνέφραξαν αὐτὰ οἱ Φυλιστιιμ μετὰ τὸ ἀποθανεῖν Αβρααμ τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπωνόμασεν αὐτοῖς ὀνόματα κατὰ τὰ ὀνόματα ἃ ἐπωνόμασεν Αβρααμ ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ

19 καὶ ὤρυξαν οἱ παῖδες Ισαακ ἐν τῇ φάραγγι Γεραρων καὶ εὗρον ἐκεῖ φρέαρ ὕδατος ζῶντος

20 καὶ ἐμαχέσαντο οἱ ποιμένες Γεραρων μετὰ τῶν ποιμένων Ισαακ φάσκοντες αὐτῶν εἶναι τὸ ὕδωρ καὶ ἐκάλεσεν τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ φρέατος Ἀδικία ἠδίκησαν γὰρ αὐτόν

21 ἀπάρας δὲ Ισαακ ἐκεῖθεν ὤρυξεν φρέαρ ἕτερον ἐκρίνοντο δὲ καὶ περὶ ἐκείνου καὶ ἐπωνόμασεν τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Ἐχθρία

22 ἀπάρας δὲ ἐκεῖθεν ὤρυξεν φρέαρ ἕτερον καὶ οὐκ ἐμαχέσαντο περὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπωνόμασεν τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ Εὐρυχωρία λέγων διότι νῦν ἐπλάτυνεν κύριος ἡμῖν καὶ ηὔξησεν ἡμᾶς ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς

23 ἀνέβη δὲ ἐκεῖθεν ἐπὶ τὸ φρέαρ τοῦ ὅρκου

24 καὶ ὤφθη αὐτῷ κύριος ἐν τῇ νυκτὶ ἐκείνῃ καὶ εἶπεν ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ θεὸς Αβρααμ τοῦ πατρός σου μὴ φοβοῦ μετὰ σοῦ γάρ εἰμι καὶ ηὐλόγηκά σε καὶ πληθυνῶ τὸ σπέρμα σου διὰ Αβρααμ τὸν πατέρα σου

25 καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν ἐκεῖ θυσιαστήριον καὶ ἐπεκαλέσατο τὸ ὄνομα κυρίου καὶ ἔπηξεν ἐκεῖ τὴν σκηνὴν αὐτοῦ ὤρυξαν δὲ ἐκεῖ οἱ παῖδες Ισαακ φρέαρ

26 καὶ Αβιμελεχ ἐπορεύθη πρὸς αὐτὸν ἀπὸ Γεραρων καὶ Οχοζαθ ὁ νυμφαγωγὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ Φικολ ὁ ἀρχιστράτηγος τῆς δυνάμεως αὐτοῦ

27 καὶ εἶπεν αὐτοῖς Ισαακ ἵνα τί ἤλθατε πρός με ὑμεῖς δὲ ἐμισήσατέ με καὶ ἀπεστείλατέ με ἀφ᾽ ὑμῶν

28 καὶ εἶπαν ἰδόντες ἑωράκαμεν ὅτι ἦν κύριος μετὰ σοῦ καὶ εἴπαμεν γενέσθω ἀρὰ ἀνὰ μέσον ἡμῶν καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον σοῦ καὶ διαθησόμεθα μετὰ σοῦ διαθήκην

29 μὴ ποιήσειν μεθ᾽ ἡμῶν κακόν καθότι ἡμεῖς σε οὐκ ἐβδελυξάμεθα καὶ ὃν τρόπον ἐχρησάμεθά σοι καλῶς καὶ ἐξαπεστείλαμέν σε μετ᾽ εἰρήνης καὶ νῦν σὺ εὐλογητὸς ὑπὸ κυρίου

30 καὶ ἐποίησεν αὐτοῖς δοχήν καὶ ἔφαγον καὶ ἔπιον

31 καὶ ἀναστάντες τὸ πρωὶ ὤμοσαν ἄνθρωπος τῷ πλησίον αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐξαπέστειλεν αὐτοὺς Ισαακ καὶ ἀπῴχοντο ἀπ᾽ αὐτοῦ μετὰ σωτηρίας

32 ἐγένετο δὲ ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ καὶ παραγενόμενοι οἱ παῖδες Ισαακ ἀπήγγειλαν αὐτῷ περὶ τοῦ φρέατος οὗ ὤρυξαν καὶ εἶπαν οὐχ εὕρομεν ὕδωρ

33 καὶ ἐκάλεσεν αὐτὸ Ὅρκος διὰ τοῦτο ὄνομα τῇ πόλει Φρέαρ ὅρκου ἕως τῆς σήμερον ἡμέρας

34 ἦν δὲ Ησαυ ἐτῶν τεσσαράκοντα καὶ ἔλαβεν γυναῖκα Ιουδιν τὴν θυγατέρα Βεηρ τοῦ Χετταίου καὶ τὴν Βασεμμαθ θυγατέρα Αιλων τοῦ Ευαίου

35 καὶ ἦσαν ἐρίζουσαι τῷ Ισαακ καὶ τῇ Ρεβεκκα

1 Orta autem fame super terram post eam sterilitatem, quæ acciderat in diebus Abraham, abiit Isaac ad Abimelech regem Palæstinorum in Gerara.

2 Apparuitque ei Dominus, et ait: Ne descendas in Ægyptum, sed quiesce in terra quam dixero tibi,

3 et peregrinare in ea: eroque tecum, et benedicam tibi: tibi enim et semini tuo dabo universas regiones has, complens juramentum quod spopondi Abraham patri tuo.

4 Et multiplicabo semen tuum sicut stellas cæli: daboque posteris tuis universas regiones has: et benedicentur in semine tuo omnes gentes terræ,

5 eo quod obedierit Abraham voci meæ, et custodierit præcepta et mandata mea, et cæremonias legesque servaverit.

6 Mansit itaque Isaac in Geraris.

7 Qui cum interrogaretur a viris loci illius super uxore sua, respondit: Soror mea est: timuerat enim confiteri quod sibi esset sociata conjugio, reputans ne forte interficerent eum propter illius pulchritudinem.

8 Cumque pertransissent dies plurimi, et ibidem moraretur, prospiciens Abimelech rex Palæstinorum per fenestram, vidit eum jocantem cum Rebecca uxore sua.

9 Et accersito eo, ait: Perspicuum est quod uxor tua sit: cur mentitus es eam sororem tuam esse? Respondit: Timui ne morerer propter eam.

10 Dixitque Abimelech: Quare imposuisti nobis? potuit coire quispiam de populo cum uxore tua, et induxeras super nos grande peccatum. Præcepitque omni populo, dicens:

11 Qui tetigerit hominis hujus uxorem, morte morietur.

12 Sevit autem Isaac in terra illa, et invenit in ipso anno centuplum: benedixitque ei Dominus.

13 Et locupletatus est homo, et ibat proficiens atque succrescens, donec magnus vehementer effectus est:

14 habuit quoque possessiones ovium et armentorum, et familiæ plurimum. Ob hoc invidentes ei Palæstini,

15 omnes puteos, quos foderant servi patris illius Abraham, illo tempore obstruxerunt, implentes humo:

16 in tantum, ut ipse Abimelech diceret ad Isaac: Recede a nobis, quoniam potentior nobis factus es valde.

17 Et ille discedens, ut veniret ad torrentem Geraræ, habitaretque ibi,

18 rursum fodit alios puteos, quos foderant servi patris sui Abraham, et quos, illo mortuo, olim obstruxerant Philisthiim: appellavitque eos eisdem nominibus quibus ante pater vocaverat.

19 Foderuntque in torrente, et repererunt aquam vivam.

20 Sed et ibi jurgium fuit pastorum Geraræ adversus pastores Isaac, dicentium: Nostra est aqua, quam ob rem nomen putei ex eo, quod acciderat, vocavit Calumniam.

21 Foderunt autem et alium: et pro illo quoque rixati sunt, appellavitque eum Inimicitias.

22 Profectus inde fodit alium puteum, pro quo non contenderunt: itaque vocavit nomen ejus Latitudo, dicens: Nunc dilatavit nos Dominus, et fecit crescere super terram.

23 Ascendit autem ex illo loco in Bersabee,

24 ubi apparuit ei Dominus in ipsa nocte, dicens: Ego sum Deus Abraham patris tui: noli timere, quia ego tecum sum: benedicam tibi, et multiplicabo semen tuum propter servum meum Abraham.

25 Itaque ædificavit ibi altare: et invocato nomine Domini, extendit tabernaculum, præcepitque servis suis ut foderunt puteum.

26 Ad quem locum cum venissent de Geraris Abimelech, et Ochozath amicus illius, et Phicol dux militum,

27 locutus est eis Isaac: Quid venistis ad me, hominem quem odistis, et expulistis a vobis?

28 Qui responderunt: Vidimus tecum esse Dominum, et idcirco nos diximus: Sit juramentum inter nos, et ineamus fœdus,

29 ut non facias nobis quidquam mali, sicut et nos nihil tuorum attigimus, nec fecimus quod te læderet: sed cum pace dimisimus auctum benedictione Domini.

30 Fecit ergo eis convivium, et post cibum et potum

31 surgentes mane, juraverunt sibi mutuo: dimisitque eos Isaac pacifice in locum suum.

32 Ecce autem venerunt in ipso die servi Isaac annuntiantes ei de puteo, quem foderant, atque dicentes: Invenimus aquam.

33 Unde appellavit eum Abundantiam: et nomen urbi impositum est Bersabee, usque in præsentem diem.

34 Esau vero quadragenarius duxit uxores, Judith filiam Beeri Hethæi, et Basemath filiam Elon ejusdem loci:

35 quæ ambæ offenderant animum Isaac et Rebeccæ.
