Genesis 21

Isaac is born.

Genesis 21:1 The LORDE also vysited Sara, acordinge as he had promysed: & dealt with her, euen as he had sayde. Genesis 21:2 And Sara was with childe, and bare Abraham a sonne in his olde age, euen in the tyme appoynted, like as God had spoken vnto him afore. Genesis 21:3 And Abraham called his sonne which was borne vnto him (who Sara bare him) Isaac,

He is circumcised.

Genesis 21:4 and circumcided him the eight daye, like as God commaunded him. Genesis 21:5 An hundreth yeare olde was Abraha, whan his sonne Isaac was borne vnto him.

Sarah's joy.

Genesis 21:6 And Sara sayde: God hath prepared a ioye for me, for who so euer heareth of it, wyll reioyse with me. Genesis 21:7 She sayde morouer: Who wolde haue saide vnto Abraham, that Sara shulde geue children sucke, and beare him a sonne in his olde age? Genesis 21:8 And the childe grew, and was weened. And Abraham made a greate feast, in ye daye whan Isaac was weened.

Hagar and Ishmael are cast forth.

Genesis 21:9 And Sara sawe the sonne of Agar the Egipcian (whom she had borne vnto Abraham) that he was a mocker, Genesis 21:10 and sayde vnto Abraham: Cast out this bonde mayden and hir sonne, for this bonde maydes sonne shall not be heyre wt my sonne Isaac. Genesis 21:11 This worde displeased Abraham sore, because of his sonne.

Genesis 21:12 Neuertheles God sayde vnto him: let it not displease the because of the childe and the hand mayde: What so euer Sara hath sayde vnto the, folowe it, for in Isaac shall the sede be called vnto the. Genesis 21:13 As for the honde maydens sonne, I wyll make a people of him also, because he is of thy sede. Genesis 21:14 Then Abraham rose vp early in the mornynge, and toke bred and a botell with water, and put it vpon Agars shulders, and gaue her the childe, and sent her awaye. Then departed she, and wandred out of the waye in ye wyldernes beside Berseba.

Hagar in distress.

Genesis 21:15 Now whan the water in the botell was out, she layed the childe vnder a bush, Genesis 21:16 and wente, and sat hir downe ouer on ye other syde, a bowe shote of. For she sayde: I can not se the childe dye. And she sat hir downe ouer on ye other syde, and lifte vp hir voyce, and wepte.

The angel comforteth her.

Genesis 21:17 Then God herde the voyce of the childe, and the angell of God called vnto Agar out of heauen, and sayde vnto her: What ayleth the, Agar? Feare not, for God hath herde ye voyce of the childe, where he lyeth. Genesis 21:18 Aryse and take the childe, and holde him by the hande, for I wyll make a greate people of him. Genesis 21:19 And God opened hir eyes, that she sawe a well of water. Then wente she and fylled ye botell with water, and gaue ye childe drynke. Genesis 21:20 And God was with the childe, which grew vp, and dwelt in ye wildernes, and became a connynge archer, Genesis 21:21 and dwelt in ye wildernes of Pharan, and his mother toke him a wyfe out of the londe of Egipte.

Abimelech's covenant with Abraham at Beer-sheba.

Genesis 21:22 At the same tyme talked Abimelech and Phicol his chefe captayne with Abraham, and sayde: God is with the in all that thou doest. Genesis 21:23 Therfore sweare now vnto me by God, that thou wilt not hurt me, ner my children, ner my childers children: but that thou shalt shewe vnto me (and to the londe wherin thou art a straunger) the same kyndnesse that I haue done vnto the. Genesis 21:24 Then sayde Abraham: I wyll sweare. Genesis 21:25 And Abraham rebuked Abimelech for the well of water, which Abimelechs seruauntes had taken awaye by violence. Genesis 21:26 Then answered Abimelech: I knewe not who dyd it, nether dyddest thou tell me, and I haue not herde of it but this daye. Genesis 21:27 The toke Abraham shepe and oxen, and gaue them vnto Abimelech, and they both made a bonde together. Genesis 21:28 And Abraham set seuen lambes by them selues. Genesis 21:29 Then sayde Abimelech vnto Abraha: What meane those seuen lambes, which thou hast set by them selues? Genesis 21:30 He answered: seue lambes shalt thou take of my hande, that they maye be wytnes vnto me, that I haue dygged this well. Genesis 21:31 Therfore is the place called Berseba, because they sware there both together. Genesis 21:32 And so they made the bonde at Berseba. Then rose Abimelech and Phicol his chefe captayne, and departed agayne in to the londe of ye Philistynes.

Genesis 21:33 And Abraham planted trees at Berseba, and called vpon the name of the LORDE ye euerlastinge God, Genesis 21:34 and was a straunger in ye londe of the Philistynes a longe season.
