Genesis 21

Isaac is born.

Genesis 21:1 The Lord visited Sara as he had promised, and did vnto her accordyng as he had spoke. Genesis 21:2 For Sara conceaued, and bare Abraham a sonne in his olde age, euen the same season whiche the Lorde had appoynted. Genesis 21:3 And Abraham called his sonnes name that was borne vnto him, whiche Sara bare hym, Isahac.

He is circumcised.

Genesis 21:4 And Abraham circumcised his sonne Isahac, when he was eyght dayes olde, as God commaunded him. Genesis 21:5 And Abraham was an hundreth yere olde, when his sonne Isahac was borne vnto him.

Sarah's joy.

Genesis 21:6 But Sara sayde: God hath made me to reioyce, so that all that heare, wyll ioy with me. Genesis 21:7 She sayd also: who would haue sayde vnto Abraham, that Sara shoulde haue geuen chyldren sucke? for I haue borne [him] a sonne in his olde age. Genesis 21:8 The chylde grewe, and was weaned, and Abraham made a great feast the same day that Isahac was weaned.

Hagar and Ishmael are cast forth.

Genesis 21:9 Sara saw also the sonne of Hagar the Egyptian, whiche she had borne vnto Abraham, [to be] a mocker. Genesis 21:10 Wherfore she sayd vnto Abraham: cast out this bond woman, & her sonne: for the sonne of this bonde woman, shal not be heyre with my sonne Isahac. Genesis 21:11 And this saying was very greeuous in Abrahams sight, because of his sonne.

Genesis 21:12 And God sayde vnto Abraham, let it not be greeuous in thy sight, because of the lad and of thy bonde woman: In al that Sara hath said vnto thee, heare her voyce, for in Isahac shall thy seede be called. Genesis 21:13 Moreouer, of the sonne of the bonde woman wyll I make a nation, because he is thy seede. Genesis 21:14 And so Abraham rose vp early in the mornyng, and tooke bread, and a bottel of water, and gaue it vnto Hagar, puttyng it on her shoulder, and the lad also, and sent her away: who departing, wandered vp and downe in the wildernesse of Beer seba.

Hagar in distress.

Genesis 21:15 And the water was spent in the bottell, and she cast the lad vnder some one of the trees: Genesis 21:16 And went, and sate on the other syde a great way, as it were a bowe shote of: for she sayd, I wyll not see the death of the chylde. And she sitting downe on the other side, lyft vp her voyce & wept.

The angel comforteth her.

Genesis 21:17 And God hearde the voyce of the lad, and the angell of God called to Hagar out of heauen, and said vnto her, what ayleth thee Hagar? feare not: for God hath hearde the voyce of the lad where he lyeth. Genesis 21:18 Aryse and lyft vp the lad, and take him in thyne hande, for I wyll make of hym a great people. Genesis 21:19 And God opened her eyes, and she sawe a well of water, and she went and filled the bottell with water, and gaue the lad drinke. Genesis 21:20 And God was with the lad, and he grewe, and dwelt in the wyldernesse, and became a principall archer. Genesis 21:21 And he dwelt in the wyldernesse of Paran, and his mother got hym a wyfe out of the lande of Egypt.

Abimelech's covenant with Abraham at Beer-sheba.

Genesis 21:22 And at the same season, Abimelech and Phicol his chiefe captayne spake vnto Abraham, saying, God [is] with thee in all that thou doest: Genesis 21:23 And nowe therefore, sweare vnto me euen here by God, that thou wylt not hurt me, nor my chyldren, nor my chyldrens children: but that thou shalt deale with me and the countrey where thou hast ben a straunger, accordyng vnto the kyndnesse that I haue shewed thee. Genesis 21:24 And Abraham saide, I will sweare. Genesis 21:25 And Abraham rebuked Abimelech for a wel of water, which Abimeleches seruauntes had violently taken away. Genesis 21:26 And Abimelech said, I wote not who hath done this thing: also thou toldest me not, neyther hearde I [of it] but this day. Genesis 21:27 And Abraham toke sheepe and Oxen, and gaue them vnto Abimelech: & they made both of them a leage together. Genesis 21:28 And Abraham set seuen ewe lambes by them selues. Genesis 21:29 And Abimelech sayd vnto Abraham: what meane these seuen ewe lambes whiche thou hast set by them selues? Genesis 21:30 He aunswered: for these seuen ewe lambes shalt thou take of my hande, that they may be a wytnesse vnto me, that I haue digged this well. Genesis 21:31 Wherefore the place is called Beer seba, because that there they sware both of them. Genesis 21:32 Thus made they a leage together at Beer seba: and Abimelech and Phicol his chiefe captayne rose vp, and turned agayne into the lande of the Philistines.

Genesis 21:33 And Abraham planted a wood in Beer seba, and called there on the name of the Lorde the euerlasting God. Genesis 21:34 And Abraham soiourned in the Philistines lande a long season.
