21:1 Yahweh visited Sarah as he had said, and Yahweh did to Sarah as he had spoken.
21:3 Abraham called his son who was born to him, whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac.
21:5 Abraham was one hundred years old when his son, Isaac, was born to him.
21:6 Sarah said, "God has made me laugh. Everyone who hears will laugh with me."
21:7 She said, "Who would have said to Abraham, that Sarah would nurse children? For I have borne him a son in his old age."
21:9 Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, mocking.
21:10 Therefore she said to Abraham, "Cast out this handmaid and her son! For the son of this handmaid will not be heir with my son, even with Isaac."
21:11 The thing was very grievous in Abraham`s sight on account of his son.
21:12 God said to Abraham, "Don`t let it be grievous in your sight because of the boy, and because of your handmaid. In all that Sarah says to you, listen to her voice. For from Isaac will your seed be called.
21:13 Also of the son of the handmaid will I make a nation, because he is your seed."
21:14 Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread and a bottle of water, and gave it to Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and gave her the child, and sent her away. She departed, and wandered in the wilderness of Beersheba.
21:20 God was with the boy, and he grew. He lived in the wilderness, and became, as he grew up, an archer.
21:21 He lived in the wilderness of Paran. His mother took a wife for him out of the land of Egypt.
21:23 Now therefore swear to me here by God that you will not deal falsely with me, nor with my son, nor with my son`s son. But according to the kindness that I have done to you, you shall do to me, and to the land in which you have sojourned."
21:24 Abraham said, "I will swear."
21:25 Abraham complained to Abimelech because of a water well, which Abimelech`s servants had violently taken away.
21:26 Abimelech said, I don`t know who has done this thing. Neither did you tell me, neither did I hear of it, until today."
21:27 Abraham took sheep and oxen, and gave them to Abimelech. Those two made a covenant.
21:28 Abraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by themselves.
21:29 Abimelech said to Abraham, "What do these seven ewe lambs which you have set by themselves mean?"
21:30 He said, "You shall take these seven ewe lambs from my hand, that it may be a witness to me, that I have dug this well."
21:31 Therefore he called that place Beersheba, because they both swore there.
