1: And Abram is a son of ninety and nine years, and Jehovah appeareth unto Abram, and saith unto him, 'I [am] God Almighty, walk habitually before Me, and be thou perfect; 2: and I give My covenant between Me and thee, and multiply thee very exceedingly.' 3: And Abram falleth upon his face, and God speaketh with him, saying, 4: 'I -- lo, My covenant [is] with thee, and thou hast become father of a multitude of nations; 5: and thy name is no more called Abram, but thy name hath been Abraham, for father of a multitude of nations have I made thee; 6: and I have made thee exceeding fruitful, and made thee become nations, and kings go out from thee. 7: 'And I have established My covenant between Me and thee, and thy seed after thee, to their generations, for a covenant age-during, to become God to thee, and to thy seed after thee; 8: and I have given to thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land of thy sojournings, the whole land of Canaan, for a possession age-during, and I have become their God.' 9: And God saith unto Abraham, 'And thou dost keep My covenant, thou and thy seed after thee, to their generations; 10: this [is] My covenant which ye keep between Me and you, and thy seed after thee: Every male of you [is] to be circumcised; 11: and ye have circumcised the flesh of your foreskin, and it hath become a token of a covenant between Me and you. 12: 'And a son of eight days is circumcised by you; every male to your generations, born in the house, or bought with money from any son of a stranger, who is not of thy seed; 13: he is certainly circumcised who [is] born in thine house, or bought with thy money; and My covenant hath become in your flesh a covenant age-during; 14: and an uncircumcised one, a male, the flesh of whose foreskin is not circumcised, even that person hath been cut off from his people; My covenant he hath broken.' 15: And God saith unto Abraham, 'Sarai thy wife -- thou dost not call her name Sarai, for Sarah [is] her name; 16: and I have blessed her, and have also given to thee a son from her; and I have blessed her, and she hath become nations -- kings of peoples are from her.' 17: And Abraham falleth upon his face, and laugheth, and saith in his heart, 'To the son of an hundred years is one born? or doth Sarah -- daughter of ninety years -- bear?' 18: And Abraham saith unto God, 'O that Ishmael may live before Thee;' 19: and God saith, 'Sarah thy wife is certainly bearing a son to thee, and thou hast called his name Isaac, and I have established My covenant with him, for a covenant age-during, to his seed after him. 20: As to Ishmael, I have heard thee; lo, I have blessed him, and made him fruitful, and multiplied him, very exceedingly; twelve princes doth he beget, and I have made him become a great nation; 21: and My covenant I establish with Isaac, whom Sarah doth bear to thee at this appointed time in the next year;' 22: and He finisheth speaking with him, and God goeth up from Abraham. 23: And Abraham taketh Ishmael his son, and all those born in his house, and all those bought with his money -- every male among the men of Abraham's house -- and circumciseth the flesh of their foreskin, in this self-same day, as God hath spoken with him. 24: And Abraham [is] a son of ninety and nine years in the flesh of his foreskin being circumcised; 25: and Ishmael his son [is] a son of thirteen years in the flesh of his foreskin being circumcised; 26: in this self-same day hath Abraham been circumcised, and Ishmael his son; 27: and all the men of his house -- born in the house, and bought with money from the son of a stranger -- have been circumcised with him.
