1. So Isaac called for Jacob and blessed him and commanded him: “Do not marry a Canaanite woman.

2. Go at once to Paddan Aram, to the house of your mother’s father Bethuel. Take a wife for yourself there, from among the daughters of Laban, your mother’s brother.

3. May God Almighty bless you and make you fruitful and increase your numbers until you become a community of peoples.

4. May he give you and your descendants the blessing given to Abraham, so that you may take possession of the land where you now live as an alien, the land God gave to Abraham.”

5. Then Isaac sent Jacob on his way, and he went to Paddan Aram, to Laban son of Bethuel the Aramean, the brother of Rebekah, who was the mother of Jacob and Esau.

6. Now Esau learned that Isaac had blessed Jacob and had sent him to Paddan Aram to take a wife from there, and that when he blessed him he commanded him, “Do not marry a Canaanite woman,”

7. and that Jacob had obeyed his father and mother and had gone to Paddan Aram.

8. Esau then realized how displeasing the Canaanite women were to his father Isaac;

9. so he went to Ishmael and married Mahalath, the sister of Nebaioth and daughter of Ishmael son of Abraham, in addition to the wives he already had.

10. Jacob left Beersheba and set out for Haran.

11. When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep.

12. He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.

13. There above it stood the LORD, and he said: “I am the LORD, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac. I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying.

14. Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south. All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring.

15. I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”

16. When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he thought, “Surely the LORD is in this place, and I was not aware of it.”

17. He was afraid and said, “How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God; this is the gate of heaven.”

18. Early the next morning Jacob took the stone he had placed under his head and set it up as a pillar and poured oil on top of it.

19. He called that place Bethel, though the city used to be called Luz.

20. Then Jacob made a vow, saying, “If God will be with me and will watch over me on this journey I am taking and will give me food to eat and clothes to wear

21. so that I return safely to my father’s house, then the LORD will be my God

22. and this stone that I have set up as a pillar will be God’s house, and of all that you give me I will give you a tenth.”

1. When Isaac was old and his eyes were so weak that he could no longer see, he called for Esau his older son and said to him, “My son.” “Here I am,” he answered.

2. Isaac said, “I am now an old man and don’t know the day of my death.

3. Now then, get your weapons– your quiver and bow– and go out to the open country to hunt some wild game for me.

4. Prepare me the kind of tasty food I like and bring it to me to eat, so that I may give you my blessing before I die.”

5. Now Rebekah was listening as Isaac spoke to his son Esau. When Esau left for the open country to hunt game and bring it back,

6. Rebekah said to her son Jacob, “Look, I overheard your father say to your brother Esau,

7. ‘Bring me some game and prepare me some tasty food to eat, so that I may give you my blessing in the presence of the LORD before I die.’

8. Now, my son, listen carefully and do what I tell you:

9. Go out to the flock and bring me two choice young goats, so I can prepare some tasty food for your father, just the way he likes it.

10. Then take it to your father to eat, so that he may give you his blessing before he dies.”

11. Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, “But my brother Esau is a hairy man, and I’m a man with smooth skin.

12. What if my father touches me? I would appear to be tricking him and would bring down a curse on myself rather than a blessing.”

13. His mother said to him, “My son, let the curse fall on me. Just do what I say; go and get them for me.”

14. So he went and got them and brought them to his mother, and she prepared some tasty food, just the way his father liked it.

15. Then Rebekah took the best clothes of Esau her older son, which she had in the house, and put them on her younger son Jacob.

16. She also covered his hands and the smooth part of his neck with the goatskins.

17. Then she handed to her son Jacob the tasty food and the bread she had made.

18. He went to his father and said, “My father.” “Yes, my son,” he answered. “Who is it?”

19. Jacob said to his father, “I am Esau your firstborn. I have done as you told me. Please sit up and eat some of my game so that you may give me your blessing.”

20. Isaac asked his son, “How did you find it so quickly, my son?” “The LORD your God gave me success,” he replied.

21. Then Isaac said to Jacob, “Come near so I can touch you, my son, to know whether you really are my son Esau or not.”

22. Jacob went close to his father Isaac, who touched him and said, “The voice is the voice of Jacob, but the hands are the hands of Esau.”

23. He did not recognize him, for his hands were hairy like those of his brother Esau; so he blessed him.

24. “Are you really my son Esau?” he asked. “I am,” he replied.

25. Then he said, “My son, bring me some of your game to eat, so that I may give you my blessing.” Jacob brought it to him and he ate; and he brought some wine and he drank.

26. Then his father Isaac said to him, “Come here, my son, and kiss me.”

27. So he went to him and kissed him. When Isaac caught the smell of his clothes, he blessed him and said, “Ah, the smell of my son is like the smell of a field that the LORD has blessed.

28. May God give you of heaven’s dew and of earth’s richness– an abundance of grain and new wine.

29. May nations serve you and peoples bow down to you. Be lord over your brothers, and may the sons of your mother bow down to you. May those who curse you be cursed and those who bless you be blessed.”

30. After Isaac finished blessing him and Jacob had scarcely left his father’s presence, his brother Esau came in from hunting.

31. He too prepared some tasty food and brought it to his father. Then he said to him, “My father, sit up and eat some of my game, so that you may give me your blessing.”

32. His father Isaac asked him, “Who are you?” “I am your son,” he answered, “your firstborn, Esau.”

33. Isaac trembled violently and said, “Who was it, then, that hunted game and brought it to me? I ate it just before you came and I blessed him– and indeed he will be blessed!”

34. When Esau heard his father’s words, he burst out with a loud and bitter cry and said to his father, “Bless me– me too, my father!”

35. But he said, “Your brother came deceitfully and took your blessing.”

36. Esau said, “Isn’t he rightly named Jacob? He has deceived me these two times: He took my birthright, and now he’s taken my blessing!” Then he asked, “Haven’t you reserved any blessing for me?”

37. Isaac answered Esau, “I have made him lord over you and have made all his relatives his servants, and I have sustained him with grain and new wine. So what can I possibly do for you, my son?”

38. Esau said to his father, “Do you have only one blessing, my father? Bless me too, my father!” Then Esau wept aloud.

39. His father Isaac answered him, “Your dwelling will be away from the earth’s richness, away from the dew of heaven above.

40. You will live by the sword and you will serve your brother. But when you grow restless, you will throw his yoke from off your neck.”

41. Esau held a grudge against Jacob because of the blessing his father had given him. He said to himself, “The days of mourning for my father are near; then I will kill my brother Jacob.”

42. When Rebekah was told what her older son Esau had said, she sent for her younger son Jacob and said to him, “Your brother Esau is consoling himself with the thought of killing you.

43. Now then, my son, do what I say: Flee at once to my brother Laban in Haran.

44. Stay with him for a while until your brother’s fury subsides.

45. When your brother is no longer angry with you and forgets what you did to him, I’ll send word for you to come back from there. Why should I lose both of you in one day?”

46. Then Rebekah said to Isaac, “I’m disgusted with living because of these Hittite women. If Jacob takes a wife from among the women of this land, from Hittite women like these, my life will not be worth living.”

1. Now there was a famine in the land– besides the earlier famine of Abraham’s time– and Isaac went to Abimelech king of the Philistines in Gerar.

2. The LORD appeared to Isaac and said, “Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land where I tell you to live.

3. Stay in this land for a while, and I will be with you and will bless you. For to you and your descendants I will give all these lands and will confirm the oath I swore to your father Abraham.

4. I will make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and will give them all these lands, and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed,

5. because Abraham obeyed me and kept my requirements, my commands, my decrees and my laws.”

6. So Isaac stayed in Gerar.

7. When the men of that place asked him about his wife, he said, “She is my sister,” because he was afraid to say, “She is my wife.” He thought, “The men of this place might kill me on account of Rebekah, because she is beautiful.”

8. When Isaac had been there a long time, Abimelech king of the Philistines looked down from a window and saw Isaac caressing his wife Rebekah.

9. So Abimelech summoned Isaac and said, “She is really your wife! Why did you say, ‘She is my sister’?” Isaac answered him, “Because I thought I might lose my life on account of her.”

10. Then Abimelech said, “What is this you have done to us? One of the men might well have slept with your wife, and you would have brought guilt upon us.”

11. So Abimelech gave orders to all the people: “Anyone who molests this man or his wife shall surely be put to death.”

12. Isaac planted crops in that land and the same year reaped a hundredfold, because the LORD blessed him.

13. The man became rich, and his wealth continued to grow until he became very wealthy.

14. He had so many flocks and herds and servants that the Philistines envied him.

15. So all the wells that his father’s servants had dug in the time of his father Abraham, the Philistines stopped up, filling them with earth.

16. Then Abimelech said to Isaac, “Move away from us; you have become too powerful for us.”

17. So Isaac moved away from there and encamped in the Valley of Gerar and settled there.

18. Isaac reopened the wells that had been dug in the time of his father Abraham, which the Philistines had stopped up after Abraham died, and he gave them the same names his father had given them.

19. Isaac’s servants dug in the valley and discovered a well of fresh water there.

20. But the herdsmen of Gerar quarreled with Isaac’s herdsmen and said, “The water is ours!” So he named the well Esek, because they disputed with him.

21. Then they dug another well, but they quarreled over that one also; so he named it Sitnah.

22. He moved on from there and dug another well, and no one quarreled over it. He named it Rehoboth, saying, “Now the LORD has given us room and we will flourish in the land.”

23. From there he went up to Beersheba.

24. That night the LORD appeared to him and said, “I am the God of your father Abraham. Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bless you and will increase the number of your descendants for the sake of my servant Abraham.”

25. Isaac built an altar there and called on the name of the LORD. There he pitched his tent, and there his servants dug a well.

26. Meanwhile, Abimelech had come to him from Gerar, with Ahuzzath his personal adviser and Phicol the commander of his forces.

27. Isaac asked them, “Why have you come to me, since you were hostile to me and sent me away?”

28. They answered, “We saw clearly that the LORD was with you; so we said, ‘There ought to be a sworn agreement between us’– between us and you. Let us make a treaty with you

29. that you will do us no harm, just as we did not molest you but always treated you well and sent you away in peace. And now you are blessed by the LORD.”

30. Isaac then made a feast for them, and they ate and drank.

31. Early the next morning the men swore an oath to each other. Then Isaac sent them on their way, and they left him in peace.

32. That day Isaac’s servants came and told him about the well they had dug. They said, “We’ve found water!”

33. He called it Shibah, and to this day the name of the town has been Beersheba.

34. When Esau was forty years old, he married Judith daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and also Basemath daughter of Elon the Hittite.

35. They were a source of grief to Isaac and Rebekah.

1. Abraham took another wife, whose name was Keturah.

2. She bore him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak and Shuah.

3. Jokshan was the father of Sheba and Dedan; the descendants of Dedan were the Asshurites, the Letushites and the Leummites.

4. The sons of Midian were Ephah, Epher, Hanoch, Abida and Eldaah. All these were descendants of Keturah.

5. Abraham left everything he owned to Isaac.

6. But while he was still living, he gave gifts to the sons of his concubines and sent them away from his son Isaac to the land of the east.

7. Altogether, Abraham lived a hundred and seventy-five years.

8. Then Abraham breathed his last and died at a good old age, an old man and full of years; and he was gathered to his people.

9. His sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah near Mamre, in the field of Ephron son of Zohar the Hittite,

10. the field Abraham had bought from the Hittites. There Abraham was buried with his wife Sarah.

11. After Abraham’s death, God blessed his son Isaac, who then lived near Beer Lahai Roi.

12. This is the account of Abraham’s son Ishmael, whom Sarah’s maidservant, Hagar the Egyptian, bore to Abraham.

13. These are the names of the sons of Ishmael, listed in the order of their birth: Nebaioth the firstborn of Ishmael, Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam,

14. Mishma, Dumah, Massa,

15. Hadad, Tema, Jetur, Naphish and Kedemah.

16. These were the sons of Ishmael, and these are the names of the twelve tribal rulers according to their settlements and camps.

17. Altogether, Ishmael lived a hundred and thirty-seven years. He breathed his last and died, and he was gathered to his people.

18. His descendants settled in the area from Havilah to Shur, near the border of Egypt, as you go toward Asshur. And they lived in hostility toward all their brothers.

19. This is the account of Abraham’s son Isaac. Abraham became the father of Isaac,

20. and Isaac was forty years old when he married Rebekah daughter of Bethuel the Aramean from Paddan Aram and sister of Laban the Aramean.

21. Isaac prayed to the LORD on behalf of his wife, because she was barren. The LORD answered his prayer, and his wife Rebekah became pregnant.

22. The babies jostled each other within her, and she said, “Why is this happening to me?” So she went to inquire of the LORD.

23. The LORD said to her, “Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples from within you will be separated; one people will be stronger than the other, and the older will serve the younger.”

24. When the time came for her to give birth, there were twin boys in her womb.

25. The first to come out was red, and his whole body was like a hairy garment; so they named him Esau.

26. After this, his brother came out, with his hand grasping Esau’s heel; so he was named Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when Rebekah gave birth to them.

27. The boys grew up, and Esau became a skillful hunter, a man of the open country, while Jacob was a quiet man, staying among the tents.

28. Isaac, who had a taste for wild game, loved Esau, but Rebekah loved Jacob.

29. Once when Jacob was cooking some stew, Esau came in from the open country, famished.

30. He said to Jacob, “Quick, let me have some of that red stew! I’m famished!” (That is why he was also called Edom.)

31. Jacob replied, “First sell me your birthright.”

32. “Look, I am about to die,” Esau said. “What good is the birthright to me?”

33. But Jacob said, “Swear to me first.” So he swore an oath to him, selling his birthright to Jacob.

34. Then Jacob gave Esau some bread and some lentil stew. He ate and drank, and then got up and left. So Esau despised his birthright.

1. Abraham was now old and well advanced in years, and the LORD had blessed him in every way.

2. He said to the chief servant in his household, the one in charge of all that he had, “Put your hand under my thigh.

3. I want you to swear by the LORD, the God of heaven and the God of earth, that you will not get a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I am living,

4. but will go to my country and my own relatives and get a wife for my son Isaac.”

5. The servant asked him, “What if the woman is unwilling to come back with me to this land? Shall I then take your son back to the country you came from?”

6. “Make sure that you do not take my son back there,” Abraham said.

7. “The LORD, the God of heaven, who brought me out of my father’s household and my native land and who spoke to me and promised me on oath, saying, ‘To your offspring I will give this land’– he will send his angel before you so that you can get a wife for my son from there.

8. If the woman is unwilling to come back with you, then you will be released from this oath of mine. Only do not take my son back there.”

9. So the servant put his hand under the thigh of his master Abraham and swore an oath to him concerning this matter.

10. Then the servant took ten of his master’s camels and left, taking with him all kinds of good things from his master. He set out for Aram Naharaim and made his way to the town of Nahor.

11. He had the camels kneel down near the well outside the town; it was toward evening, the time the women go out to draw water.

12. Then he prayed, “O LORD, God of my master Abraham, give me success today, and show kindness to my master Abraham.

13. See, I am standing beside this spring, and the daughters of the townspeople are coming out to draw water.

14. May it be that when I say to a girl, ‘Please let down your jar that I may have a drink,’ and she says, ‘Drink, and I’ll water your camels too’– let her be the one you have chosen for your servant Isaac. By this I will know that you have shown kindness to my master.”

15. Before he had finished praying, Rebekah came out with her jar on her shoulder. She was the daughter of Bethuel son of Milcah, who was the wife of Abraham’s brother Nahor.

16. The girl was very beautiful, a virgin; no man had ever lain with her. She went down to the spring, filled her jar and came up again.

17. The servant hurried to meet her and said, “Please give me a little water from your jar.”

18. “Drink, my lord,” she said, and quickly lowered the jar to her hands and gave him a drink.

19. After she had given him a drink, she said, “I’ll draw water for your camels too, until they have finished drinking.”

20. So she quickly emptied her jar into the trough, ran back to the well to draw more water, and drew enough for all his camels.

21. Without saying a word, the man watched her closely to learn whether or not the LORD had made his journey successful.

22. When the camels had finished drinking, the man took out a gold nose ring weighing a beka and two gold bracelets weighing ten shekels.

23. Then he asked, “Whose daughter are you? Please tell me, is there room in your father’s house for us to spend the night?”

24. She answered him, “I am the daughter of Bethuel, the son that Milcah bore to Nahor.”

25. And she added, “We have plenty of straw and fodder, as well as room for you to spend the night.”

26. Then the man bowed down and worshiped the LORD,

27. saying, “Praise be to the LORD, the God of my master Abraham, who has not abandoned his kindness and faithfulness to my master. As for me, the LORD has led me on the journey to the house of my master’s relatives.”

28. The girl ran and told her mother’s household about these things.

29. Now Rebekah had a brother named Laban, and he hurried out to the man at the spring.

30. As soon as he had seen the nose ring, and the bracelets on his sister’s arms, and had heard Rebekah tell what the man said to her, he went out to the man and found him standing by the camels near the spring.

31. “Come, you who are blessed by the LORD,” he said. “Why are you standing out here? I have prepared the house and a place for the camels.”

32. So the man went to the house, and the camels were unloaded. Straw and fodder were brought for the camels, and water for him and his men to wash their feet.

33. Then food was set before him, but he said, “I will not eat until I have told you what I have to say.” “Then tell us,” [Laban] said.

34. So he said, “I am Abraham’s servant.

35. The LORD has blessed my master abundantly, and he has become wealthy. He has given him sheep and cattle, silver and gold, menservants and maidservants, and camels and donkeys.

36. My master’s wife Sarah has borne him a son in her old age, and he has given him everything he owns.

37. And my master made me swear an oath, and said, ‘You must not get a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I live,

38. but go to my father’s family and to my own clan, and get a wife for my son.’

39. “Then I asked my master, ‘What if the woman will not come back with me?’

40. “He replied, ‘The LORD, before whom I have walked, will send his angel with you and make your journey a success, so that you can get a wife for my son from my own clan and from my father’s family.

41. Then, when you go to my clan, you will be released from my oath even if they refuse to give her to you– you will be released from my oath.’

42. “When I came to the spring today, I said, ‘O LORD, God of my master Abraham, if you will, please grant success to the journey on which I have come.

43. See, I am standing beside this spring; if a maiden comes out to draw water and I say to her, “Please let me drink a little water from your jar,”

44. and if she says to me, “Drink, and I’ll draw water for your camels too,” let her be the one the LORD has chosen for my master’s son.’

45. “Before I finished praying in my heart, Rebekah came out, with her jar on her shoulder. She went down to the spring and drew water, and I said to her, ‘Please give me a drink.’

46. “She quickly lowered her jar from her shoulder and said, ‘Drink, and I’ll water your camels too.’ So I drank, and she watered the camels also.

47. “I asked her, ‘Whose daughter are you?’ “She said, ‘The daughter of Bethuel son of Nahor, whom Milcah bore to him.’ “Then I put the ring in her nose and the bracelets on her arms,

48. and I bowed down and worshiped the LORD. I praised the LORD, the God of my master Abraham, who had led me on the right road to get the granddaughter of my master’s brother for his son.

49. Now if you will show kindness and faithfulness to my master, tell me; and if not, tell me, so I may know which way to turn.”

50. Laban and Bethuel answered, “This is from the LORD; we can say nothing to you one way or the other.

51. Here is Rebekah; take her and go, and let her become the wife of your master’s son, as the LORD has directed.”

52. When Abraham’s servant heard what they said, he bowed down to the ground before the LORD.

53. Then the servant brought out gold and silver jewelry and articles of clothing and gave them to Rebekah; he also gave costly gifts to her brother and to her mother.

54. Then he and the men who were with him ate and drank and spent the night there. When they got up the next morning, he said, “Send me on my way to my master.”

55. But her brother and her mother replied, “Let the girl remain with us ten days or so; then you may go.”

56. But he said to them, “Do not detain me, now that the LORD has granted success to my journey. Send me on my way so I may go to my master.”

57. Then they said, “Let’s call the girl and ask her about it.”

58. So they called Rebekah and asked her, “Will you go with this man?” “I will go,” she said.

59. So they sent their sister Rebekah on her way, along with her nurse and Abraham’s servant and his men.

60. And they blessed Rebekah and said to her, “Our sister, may you increase to thousands upon thousands; may your offspring possess the gates of their enemies.”

61. Then Rebekah and her maids got ready and mounted their camels and went back with the man. So the servant took Rebekah and left.

62. Now Isaac had come from Beer Lahai Roi, for he was living in the Negev.

63. He went out to the field one evening to meditate, and as he looked up, he saw camels approaching.

64. Rebekah also looked up and saw Isaac. She got down from her camel

65. and asked the servant, “Who is that man in the field coming to meet us?” “He is my master,” the servant answered. So she took her veil and covered herself.

66. Then the servant told Isaac all he had done.

67. Isaac brought her into the tent of his mother Sarah, and he married Rebekah. So she became his wife, and he loved her; and Isaac was comforted after his mother’s death.

1. Sarah lived to be a hundred and twenty-seven years old.

2. She died at Kiriath Arba (that is, Hebron) in the land of Canaan, and Abraham went to mourn for Sarah and to weep over her.

3. Then Abraham rose from beside his dead wife and spoke to the Hittites. He said,

4. “I am an alien and a stranger among you. Sell me some property for a burial site here so I can bury my dead.”

5. The Hittites replied to Abraham,

6. “Sir, listen to us. You are a mighty prince among us. Bury your dead in the choicest of our tombs. None of us will refuse you his tomb for burying your dead.”

7. Then Abraham rose and bowed down before the people of the land, the Hittites.

8. He said to them, “If you are willing to let me bury my dead, then listen to me and intercede with Ephron son of Zohar on my behalf

9. so he will sell me the cave of Machpelah, which belongs to him and is at the end of his field. Ask him to sell it to me for the full price as a burial site among you.”

10. Ephron the Hittite was sitting among his people and he replied to Abraham in the hearing of all the Hittites who had come to the gate of his city.

11. “No, my lord,” he said. “Listen to me; I give you the field, and I give you the cave that is in it. I give it to you in the presence of my people. Bury your dead.”

12. Again Abraham bowed down before the people of the land

13. and he said to Ephron in their hearing, “Listen to me, if you will. I will pay the price of the field. Accept it from me so I can bury my dead there.”

14. Ephron answered Abraham,

15. “Listen to me, my lord; the land is worth four hundred shekels of silver, but what is that between me and you? Bury your dead.”

16. Abraham agreed to Ephron’s terms and weighed out for him the price he had named in the hearing of the Hittites: four hundred shekels of silver, according to the weight current among the merchants.

17. So Ephron’s field in Machpelah near Mamre– both the field and the cave in it, and all the trees within the borders of the field– was deeded

18. to Abraham as his property in the presence of all the Hittites who had come to the gate of the city.

19. Afterward Abraham buried his wife Sarah in the cave in the field of Machpelah near Mamre (which is at Hebron) in the land of Canaan.

20. So the field and the cave in it were deeded to Abraham by the Hittites as a burial site.

1. Some time later God tested Abraham. He said to him, “Abraham!” “Here I am,” he replied.

2. Then God said, “Take your son, your only son, Isaac, whom you love, and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains I will tell you about.”

3. Early the next morning Abraham got up and saddled his donkey. He took with him two of his servants and his son Isaac. When he had cut enough wood for the burnt offering, he set out for the place God had told him about.

4. On the third day Abraham looked up and saw the place in the distance.

5. He said to his servants, “Stay here with the donkey while I and the boy go over there. We will worship and then we will come back to you.”

6. Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering and placed it on his son Isaac, and he himself carried the fire and the knife. As the two of them went on together,

7. Isaac spoke up and said to his father Abraham, “Father?” “Yes, my son?” Abraham replied. “The fire and wood are here,” Isaac said, “but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?”

8. Abraham answered, “God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering, my son.” And the two of them went on together.

9. When they reached the place God had told him about, Abraham built an altar there and arranged the wood on it. He bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood.

10. Then he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son.

11. But the angel of the LORD called out to him from heaven, “Abraham! Abraham!” “Here I am,” he replied.

12. “Do not lay a hand on the boy,” he said. “Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son.”

13. Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son.

14. So Abraham called that place The LORD Will Provide. And to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the LORD it will be provided.”

15. The angel of the LORD called to Abraham from heaven a second time

16. and said, “I swear by myself, declares the LORD, that because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son,

17. I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies,

18. and through your offspring all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me.”

19. Then Abraham returned to his servants, and they set off together for Beersheba. And Abraham stayed in Beersheba.

20. Some time later Abraham was told, “Milcah is also a mother; she has borne sons to your brother Nahor:

21. Uz the firstborn, Buz his brother, Kemuel (the father of Aram),

22. Kesed, Hazo, Pildash, Jidlaph and Bethuel.”

23. Bethuel became the father of Rebekah. Milcah bore these eight sons to Abraham’s brother Nahor.

24. His concubine, whose name was Reumah, also had sons: Tebah, Gaham, Tahash and Maacah.

1. Now the LORD was gracious to Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did for Sarah what he had promised.

2. Sarah became pregnant and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the very time God had promised him.

3. Abraham gave the name Isaac to the son Sarah bore him.

4. When his son Isaac was eight days old, Abraham circumcised him, as God commanded him.

5. Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him.

6. Sarah said, “God has brought me laughter, and everyone who hears about this will laugh with me.”

7. And she added, “Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? Yet I have borne him a son in his old age.”

8. The child grew and was weaned, and on the day Isaac was weaned Abraham held a great feast.

9. But Sarah saw that the son whom Hagar the Egyptian had borne to Abraham was mocking,

10. and she said to Abraham, “Get rid of that slave woman and her son, for that slave woman’s son will never share in the inheritance with my son Isaac.”

11. The matter distressed Abraham greatly because it concerned his son.

12. But God said to him, “Do not be so distressed about the boy and your maidservant. Listen to whatever Sarah tells you, because it is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.

13. I will make the son of the maidservant into a nation also, because he is your offspring.”

14. Early the next morning Abraham took some food and a skin of water and gave them to Hagar. He set them on her shoulders and then sent her off with the boy. She went on her way and wandered in the desert of Beersheba.

15. When the water in the skin was gone, she put the boy under one of the bushes.

16. Then she went off and sat down nearby, about a bowshot away, for she thought, “I cannot watch the boy die.” And as she sat there nearby, she began to sob.

17. God heard the boy crying, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, “What is the matter, Hagar? Do not be afraid; God has heard the boy crying as he lies there.

18. Lift the boy up and take him by the hand, for I will make him into a great nation.”

19. Then God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water. So she went and filled the skin with water and gave the boy a drink.

20. God was with the boy as he grew up. He lived in the desert and became an archer.

21. While he was living in the Desert of Paran, his mother got a wife for him from Egypt.

22. At that time Abimelech and Phicol the commander of his forces said to Abraham, “God is with you in everything you do.

23. Now swear to me here before God that you will not deal falsely with me or my children or my descendants. Show to me and the country where you are living as an alien the same kindness I have shown to you.”

24. Abraham said, “I swear it.”

25. Then Abraham complained to Abimelech about a well of water that Abimelech’s servants had seized.

26. But Abimelech said, “I don’t know who has done this. You did not tell me, and I heard about it only today.”

27. So Abraham brought sheep and cattle and gave them to Abimelech, and the two men made a treaty.

28. Abraham set apart seven ewe lambs from the flock,

29. and Abimelech asked Abraham, “What is the meaning of these seven ewe lambs you have set apart by themselves?”

30. He replied, “Accept these seven lambs from my hand as a witness that I dug this well.”

31. So that place was called Beersheba, because the two men swore an oath there.

32. After the treaty had been made at Beersheba, Abimelech and Phicol the commander of his forces returned to the land of the Philistines.

33. Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba, and there he called upon the name of the LORD, the Eternal God.

34. And Abraham stayed in the land of the Philistines for a long time.

1. Now Abraham moved on from there into the region of the Negev and lived between Kadesh and Shur. For a while he stayed in Gerar,

2. and there Abraham said of his wife Sarah, “She is my sister.” Then Abimelech king of Gerar sent for Sarah and took her.

3. But God came to Abimelech in a dream one night and said to him, “You are as good as dead because of the woman you have taken; she is a married woman.”

4. Now Abimelech had not gone near her, so he said, “Lord, will you destroy an innocent nation?

5. Did he not say to me, ‘She is my sister,’ and didn’t she also say, ‘He is my brother’? I have done this with a clear conscience and clean hands.”

6. Then God said to him in the dream, “Yes, I know you did this with a clear conscience, and so I have kept you from sinning against me. That is why I did not let you touch her.

7. Now return the man’s wife, for he is a prophet, and he will pray for you and you will live. But if you do not return her, you may be sure that you and all yours will die.”

8. Early the next morning Abimelech summoned all his officials, and when he told them all that had happened, they were very much afraid.

9. Then Abimelech called Abraham in and said, “What have you done to us? How have I wronged you that you have brought such great guilt upon me and my kingdom? You have done things to me that should not be done.”

10. And Abimelech asked Abraham, “What was your reason for doing this?”

11. Abraham replied, “I said to myself, ‘There is surely no fear of God in this place, and they will kill me because of my wife.’

12. Besides, she really is my sister, the daughter of my father though not of my mother; and she became my wife.

13. And when God had me wander from my father’s household, I said to her, ‘This is how you can show your love to me: Everywhere we go, say of me, “He is my brother.” ‘”

14. Then Abimelech brought sheep and cattle and male and female slaves and gave them to Abraham, and he returned Sarah his wife to him.

15. And Abimelech said, “My land is before you; live wherever you like.”

16. To Sarah he said, “I am giving your brother a thousand shekels of silver. This is to cover the offense against you before all who are with you; you are completely vindicated.”

17. Then Abraham prayed to God, and God healed Abimelech, his wife and his slave girls so they could have children again,

18. for the LORD had closed up every womb in Abimelech’s household because of Abraham’s wife Sarah.

1. The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. When he saw them, he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground.

2. “My lords,” he said, “please turn aside to your servant’s house. You can wash your feet and spend the night and then go on your way early in the morning.” “No,” they answered, “we will spend the night in the square.”

3. But he insisted so strongly that they did go with him and entered his house. He prepared a meal for them, baking bread without yeast, and they ate.

4. Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom– both young and old– surrounded the house.

5. They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.”

6. Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him

7. and said, “No, my friends. Don’t do this wicked thing.

8. Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don’t do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof.”

9. “Get out of our way,” they replied. And they said, “This fellow came here as an alien, and now he wants to play the judge! We’ll treat you worse than them.” They kept bringing pressure on Lot and moved forward to break down the door.

10. But the men inside reached out and pulled Lot back into the house and shut the door.

11. Then they struck the men who were at the door of the house, young and old, with blindness so that they could not find the door.

12. The two men said to Lot, “Do you have anyone else here– sons-in-law, sons or daughters, or anyone else in the city who belongs to you? Get them out of here,

13. because we are going to destroy this place. The outcry to the LORD against its people is so great that he has sent us to destroy it.”

14. So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who were pledged to marry his daughters. He said, “Hurry and get out of this place, because the LORD is about to destroy the city!” But his sons-in-law thought he was joking.

15. With the coming of dawn, the angels urged Lot, saying, “Hurry! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away when the city is punished.”

16. When he hesitated, the men grasped his hand and the hands of his wife and of his two daughters and led them safely out of the city, for the LORD was merciful to them.

17. As soon as they had brought them out, one of them said, “Flee for your lives! Don’t look back, and don’t stop anywhere in the plain! Flee to the mountains or you will be swept away!”

18. But Lot said to them, “No, my lords, please!

19. Your servant has found favor in your eyes, and you have shown great kindness to me in sparing my life. But I can’t flee to the mountains; this disaster will overtake me, and I’ll die.

20. Look, here is a town near enough to run to, and it is small. Let me flee to it– it is very small, isn’t it? Then my life will be spared.”

21. He said to him, “Very well, I will grant this request too; I will not overthrow the town you speak of.

22. But flee there quickly, because I cannot do anything until you reach it.” (That is why the town was called Zoar.)

23. By the time Lot reached Zoar, the sun had risen over the land.

24. Then the LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah– from the LORD out of the heavens.

25. Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, including all those living in the cities– and also the vegetation in the land.

26. But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.

27. Early the next morning Abraham got up and returned to the place where he had stood before the LORD.

28. He looked down toward Sodom and Gomorrah, toward all the land of the plain, and he saw dense smoke rising from the land, like smoke from a furnace.

29. So when God destroyed the cities of the plain, he remembered Abraham, and he brought Lot out of the catastrophe that overthrew the cities where Lot had lived.

30. Lot and his two daughters left Zoar and settled in the mountains, for he was afraid to stay in Zoar. He and his two daughters lived in a cave.

31. One day the older daughter said to the younger, “Our father is old, and there is no man around here to lie with us, as is the custom all over the earth.

32. Let’s get our father to drink wine and then lie with him and preserve our family line through our father.”

33. That night they got their father to drink wine, and the older daughter went in and lay with him. He was not aware of it when she lay down or when she got up.

34. The next day the older daughter said to the younger, “Last night I lay with my father. Let’s get him to drink wine again tonight, and you go in and lie with him so we can preserve our family line through our father.”

35. So they got their father to drink wine that night also, and the younger daughter went and lay with him. Again he was not aware of it when she lay down or when she got up.

36. So both of Lot’s daughters became pregnant by their father.

37. The older daughter had a son, and she named him Moab; he is the father of the Moabites of today.

38. The younger daughter also had a son, and she named him Ben-Ammi; he is the father of the Ammonites of today.
