Genesis 21:1 The Lorde visyted Sara as he had sayde and dyd vnto her accordynge as he had promysed. Genesis 21:2 For Sara was wyth chylde and bare Abraham a sonne in his olde age, euen the same season which þe Lorde had appoynted him. Genesis 21:3 And Abraham called his sonnes name that was borne vnto hym which Sara bare him, Isahac:
He is circumcised.
Genesis 21:4 & Abraham circumcysed Isahac his sonne when he was .viii. dayes olde: as God commaunded hym. Genesis 21:5 And Abraham was an hundred yere olde: when his sonne Isahac was borne vnto hym.
Genesis 21:6 But Sara sayde: God hath made me a laughynge stocke: so that all that heare: wyll laugh at me. Genesis 21:7 She sayde also: who wolde haue sayd vnto Abraham: that Sara shulde haue geuen chyldren sucke? for I haue borne him a sonne in hys olde age. Genesis 21:8 The chylde grewe: and was wened: and Abraham made a great feast: the same daye that Isahac was wened.
Hagar and Ishmael are cast forth.
Genesis 21:9 Sara sawe also the sonne of Hagar the Egyptian (whyche she had borne vnto Abraham) to be a mocker. Genesis 21:10 Wherfore she sayde vnto Abraham: put awaye this bondemayde & hyr sonne: for the sonne of thys bonde woman shall not be heyre with my sonne Isahac: Genesis 21:11 & thys sayinge was very greauous in Abrahams syght because of hys sonne.
Genesis 21:12 And God sayde vnto Abraham: let it not be greauous in thy syght, because of the ladd and of thy bondmayde. All þt Sara hath sayde vnto the, heare hyr voyce, for in Isahac shall thy seed be called. Genesis 21:13 Moreouer of the sonne of the bondewoman wyll I make a nacyon: because he is thy seed. Genesis 21:14 And so Abraham rose vp early in the morninge, and toke bread and a bottell of water, and gaue it vnto Hagar, puttynge it on hyr shulders with the ladd also, & sent her awaye. who departynge, wandred vp and doune in the wyldernes of Beer Seba.
Hagar in distress.
Genesis 21:15 And the water was spent in the bottell, and she cast þe lad vnder a bushe Genesis 21:16 and went and satt on the other syde a greate waye, as it were a bowshote of: for she sayde: I will not se the death of the chylde. And she syttynge doune on the other syde, lyfte vp hyr voyce and wepte.
The angel comforteth her.
Genesis 21:17 And God herde the voyce of the chylde. And the angell of God called Hagar oute of heauen and sayde vnto her: what ayleth the Hagar? Feare not, for God hath herde the voyce of the childe where he lyeth. Genesis 21:18 Aryse, and lyfte vp the ladd, and take hym in thy hande, for I wyll make of hym a greate people. Genesis 21:19 And God opened hyr eyes: and she sawe a well of water. And she went and fylled the bottell with water, and gaue the boye drynke. Genesis 21:20 And God was wyth the ladd, and he grewe and dwelt in the wyldernesse, and became an archer. Genesis 21:21 And he dwelt in þe wyldernesse of Pharan. And hys mother gatt hym a wyfe out of the lande of Egypte.
Abimelech's covenant with Abraham at Beer-sheba.
Genesis 21:22 And it chaunced the same season, that Abimelech and Phicoll hys chefe captayne spake vnto Abraham sayinge: God is wyth the in all that thou doest. Genesis 21:23 And nowe therfore swere vnto me euen here by God, that thou wylt not hurt me nor my chyldren, nor my chyldrens chyldren. But that thou shalt deale with me and the contre where thou hast bene a straunger, accordynge vnto the kyndnesse that I haue shewed the. Genesis 21:24 And Abraham sayd. I wyll swere. Genesis 21:25 And Abraham rebuked Abimelech for a well of water, which Abimelechs seruauntes had violently taken a waye. Genesis 21:26 And Abimelech sayde: I wote not who hath done thys thinge. Also thou toldest me not: nether herde I of it, but thys daye. Genesis 21:27 And Abraham toke shepe and oxen, and gaue them vnto Abimelech. And they made both of them a bonde together. Genesis 21:28 And Abraham set .vii. ewe lambes by them selues. Genesis 21:29 And Abimelech sayd vnto Abraham: what meane these .vii. ewe lambes which thou hast set by them selues? Genesis 21:30 He answered: For these .vii. lambes shalt thou take of my hande, that they maye be a wytnesse vnto me, that I haue dygged thys well. Genesis 21:31 Wherfore the place is called Beer Seba, because that there they sware both of them. Genesis 21:32 Thus made they a bonde to gether at Beer Seba. And Abimelech & Phicol his chefe Captayne rose vp, and turned agayne vnto the lande of the Philistines.
Genesis 21:33 And Abraham planted a wodd in Beer Seba, and called there on the name of the Lorde, the euerlastyng God: Genesis 21:34 and sogeourned in the Philistins lande a longe season.
