Abraham and the Covenant of Circumcision

1 Now when Abram was ninety-nine years old, the R412 LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, "I am God F271 Almighty; R413 Walk before Me, and be blameless. R414 F272

2 "I will establish F273 My covenant R415 between Me and you,

And I will multiply R416 you exceedingly."

3 Abram fell R417 on his face, and God talked with him, saying,

4 "As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you,

And you will be the father of a multitude R418 of nations.

5 "No longer shall your name be called Abram, F274

But your R419 name shall be Abraham; F275

For I R420 have made you the father of a multitude of nations.

6 "I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make nations of you, and kings R421 will come forth from you. 7 "I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants F276 after you throughout their generations for an everlasting R422 covenant, to R423 be God to you and to R424 your descendants F276 after you. 8 "I R425 will give to you and to your descendants F277 after you, the land of your sojournings, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I R426 will be their God."

9 God said further to Abraham, "Now as for you, you R427 shall keep My covenant, you and your descendants F278 after you throughout their generations. 10 "This R428 is My covenant, which you shall keep, between Me and you and your descendants F279 after you: every male among you shall be circumcised. 11 "And you R429 shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskin, and it shall be the sign of the covenant between Me and you. 12 "And every male among you who is eight R430 days old shall be circumcised throughout your generations, a servant who is born in the house or who is bought with money from any foreigner, who is not of your descendants. F280 13 "A servant who is born in your house or who R431 is bought with your money shall surely be circumcised; thus shall My covenant be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant. 14 "But an uncircumcised male who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin, that person shall be cut R432 off from his people; he has broken My covenant."

15 Then God said to Abraham, "As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah F281 shall be her name. 16 "I will bless her, and indeed I will give you a R433 son by her. Then I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings R434 of peoples will come F282 from her." 17 Then Abraham fell R435 on his face and laughed, and said in his heart, "Will a child be born to a man one hundred years old? And will R436 Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a child?" 18 And Abraham said to God, "Oh that Ishmael might live before You!" 19 But God said, "No, but Sarah your wife will bear you a R437 son, and you shall call his name Isaac; F283 and I R438 will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant for his descendants F284 after him. 20 "As for Ishmael, I have heard you; behold, I will bless him, and will R439 make him fruitful and will multiply him exceedingly. He R440 shall become F285 the father of twelve princes, and I will make him a great R441 nation. 21 "But My covenant I will establish with Isaac, R442 whom Sarah R443 will bear to you at this season next year." 22 When He finished talking with him, God R444 went up from Abraham.

23 Then Abraham took Ishmael his son, and all the servants who were born R445 in his house and all who were bought with his money, every male among the men of Abraham's household, and circumcised the flesh of their foreskin in the very same day, as R446 God had said to him. 24 Now Abraham was ninety-nine years old when he R447 was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. 25 And Ishmael R448 his son was thirteen years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. 26 In the very same day Abraham was circumcised, and Ishmael his son. 27 All the men of his household, who were born R449 in the house or bought with money from a foreigner, were circumcised with him.
