Genesis 17

God reneweth the Covenant.

Genesis 17:1 And after he began to be ninety and nine years old, the Lord appeared to him: and said unto him: I am the Almighty God: walk before me, and be perfect. Genesis 17:2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee: and I will multiply thee exceedingly. Genesis 17:3 Abram fell flat on his face. Genesis 17:4 And God said to him: I am, and my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.

Abram his name is changed in a token of a greater blessing.

Genesis 17:5 Neither shall thy name be called any more Abram: but thou shalt be called Abraham: because I have made thee a father of many nations. Genesis 17:6 And I will make thee increase exceedingly, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. Genesis 17:7 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee, and between thy seed after thee in their generations, by a perpetual covenant: to be a God to thee, and to thy seed after thee. Genesis 17:8 And I will give to thee, and to thy seed, the land of thy sojournment, all the land of Chanaan, for a perpetual possession, and I will be their God.

Genesis 17:9 Again God said to Abraham: And thou therefore shalt keep my covenant, and thy seed after thee in their generations.

Circumcision is instituted.

Genesis 17:10 This is my covenant which you shall observe between me and you, and thy seed after thee: All the male kind of you shall be circumcised. Genesis 17:11 And you shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin, that it may be for a sign of the covenant between me and you. Genesis 17:12 An infant of eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every manchild in your generations: he that is born in the house, as well as the bought servant, shall be circumcised, and whosoever is not of your stock: Genesis 17:13 And my covenant shall be in your flesh for a perpetual covenant. Genesis 17:14 The male whose flesh of his foreskin shall not be circumcised, that soul shall be destroyed out of his people: because he hath broken my covenant.

Sarai her name is changed, and she is blessed.

Genesis 17:15 God said also to Abraham: Sarai thy wife thou shalt not call Sarai, but Sara.

Isaac is promised.

Genesis 17:16 And I will bless her, and of her I will give thee a son, whom I will bless, and he shall become nations, and kings of people shall spring from him. Genesis 17:17 Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, saying in his heart: Shall a son, thinkest thou, be born to him that is a hundred years old? and shall Sara that is ninety years old bring forth? Genesis 17:18 And he said to God: O that Ismael may live before thee. Genesis 17:19 And God said to Abraham: Sara thy wife shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name Isaac, and I will establish my covenant with him for a perpetual covenant, and with his seed after him. Genesis 17:20 And as for Ismael I have also heard thee. Behold, I will bless him, and increase, and multiply him exceedingly: he shall beget twelve chiefs, and I will make him a great nation. Genesis 17:21 But my covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sara shall bring forth to thee at this time in the next year. Genesis 17:22 And when he had left off speaking with him, God went up from Abraham.

Abraham and Ishmael are circumcised.

Genesis 17:23 And Abraham took Ismael his son, and all that were born in his house: and all whom he had bought, every male among the men of his house: and he circumcised the flesh of their foreskin forthwith the very same day, as God had commanded him. Genesis 17:24 Abraham was ninety and nine years old, when he circumcised the flesh of his foreskin. Genesis 17:25 And Ismael his son was full thirteen years old at the time of his circumcision. Genesis 17:26 The selfsame day was Abraham circumcised and Ismael his son. Genesis 17:27 And all the men of his house, as well they that were born in his house, as the bought servants and strangers, were circumcised with him.
