Genesis 16

1 Now Sarai Abram’s wife bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar. 11 I View Tool
2 And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the Lord hath restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai. 10 I View Tool
3 And Sarai Abram’s wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife. 10 I View Tool
4 And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived: and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes. 10 I View Tool
5 And Sarai said unto Abram, My wrong be upon thee: I have given my maid into thy bosom; and when she saw that she had conceived, I was despised in her eyes: the Lord judge between me and thee. 10 I View Tool
6 But Abram said unto Sarai, Behold, thy maid is in thine hand; do to her as it pleaseth thee. And when Sarai dealt hardly with her, she fled from her face. 10 I View Tool
7 And the angel of the Lord found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur. 10 I View Tool
8 And he said, Hagar, Sarai’s maid, whence camest thou? and whither wilt thou go? And she said, I flee from the face of my mistress Sarai. 9 I View Tool
9 And the angel of the Lord said unto her, Return to thy mistress, and submit thyself under her hands. 10 I View Tool
10 And the angel of the Lord said unto her, I will multiply thy seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude. 10 I View Tool
11 And the angel of the Lord said unto her, Behold, thou art with child and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the Lord hath heard thy affliction. 10 I View Tool
12 And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren. 10 I View Tool
13 And she called the name of the Lord that spake unto her, Thou God seest me: for she said, Have I also here looked after him that seeth me? 10 I View Tool
14 Wherefore the well was called Beerlahairoi; behold, it is between Kadesh and Bered. 10 I View Tool
15 And Hagar bare Abram a son: and Abram called his son’s name, which Hagar bare, Ishmael. 10 I View Tool
16 And Abram was fourscore and six years old, when Hagar bare Ishmael to Abram. 10 I View Tool

 

Genesis 17

1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect. 20 I View Tool
2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly. 12 I View Tool
3 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, 12 I View Tool
4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. 12 I View Tool
5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee. 12 I View Tool
6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. 10 I View Tool
7 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. 14 I View Tool
8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God. 12 I View Tool
9 And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations. 12 I View Tool
10 This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised. 10 I View Tool
11 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you. 10 I View Tool
12 And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed. 10 I View Tool
13 He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant. 10 I View Tool
14 And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant. 10 I View Tool
15 And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be. 10 I View Tool
16 And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her. 10 I View Tool
17 Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear? 10 I View Tool
18 And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live before thee! 10 I View Tool
19 And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him. 12 I View Tool
20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation. 10 I View Tool
21 But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year. 10 I View Tool
22 And he left off talking with him, and God went up from Abraham. 10 I View Tool
23 And Abraham took Ishmael his son, and all that were born in his house, and all that were bought with his money, every male among the men of Abraham’s house; and circumcised the flesh of their foreskin in the selfsame day, as God had said unto him. 10 I View Tool
24 And Abraham was ninety years old and nine, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. 10 I View Tool
25 And Ishmael his son was thirteen years old, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. 10 I View Tool
26 In the selfsame day was Abraham circumcised, and Ishmael his son. 10 I View Tool
27 And all the men of his house, born in the house, and bought with money of the stranger, were circumcised with him. 10 I View Tool

 

Genesis 18

1 And the Lord appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day; 10 I View Tool
2 And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground, 10 I View Tool
3 And said, My Lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant: 10 I View Tool
4 Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree: 10 I View Tool
5 And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort ye your hearts; after that ye shall pass on: for therefore are ye come to your servant. And they said, So do, as thou hast said. 10 I View Tool
6 And Abraham hastened into the tent unto Sarah, and said, Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes upon the hearth. 10 I View Tool
7 And Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetcht a calf tender and good, and gave it unto a young man; and he hasted to dress it. 10 I View Tool
8 And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat. 10 I View Tool
9 And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent. 10 I View Tool
10 And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him. 10 I View Tool
11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women. 10 I View Tool
12 Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also? 10 I View Tool
13 And the Lord said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old? 10 I View Tool
14 Is any thing too hard for the Lord? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son. 10 I View Tool
15 Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And he said, Nay; but thou didst laugh. 10 I View Tool
16 And the men rose up from thence, and looked toward Sodom: and Abraham went with them to bring them on the way. 10 I View Tool
17 And the Lord said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do; 10 I View Tool
18 Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? 13 I View Tool
19 For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord, to do justice and judgment; that the Lord may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him. 13 I View Tool
20 And the Lord said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous; 10 I View Tool
21 I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know. 10 I View Tool
22 And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the Lord. 10 I View Tool
23 And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked? 10 I View Tool
24 Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein? 10 I View Tool
25 That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right? 10 I View Tool
26 And the Lord said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes. 12 I View Tool
27 And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes: 10 I View Tool
28 Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five? And he said, If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it. 10 I View Tool
29 And he spake unto him yet again, and said, Peradventure there shall be forty found there. And he said, I will not do it for forty’s sake. 10 I View Tool
30 And he said unto him, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found there. And he said, I will not do it, if I find thirty there. 10 I View Tool
31 And he said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord: Peradventure there shall be twenty found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for twenty’s sake. 10 I View Tool
32 And he said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten’s sake. 10 I View Tool
33 And the Lord went his way, as soon as he had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place. 10 I View Tool
