Genesis 17

17
1And when Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation) was ninety years old and nine, the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) appeared to Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation), and said unto him, I [am] the Almighty God-El Shaddai [The Powerful Living Word]: walk before me, and be youi perfect.
2And I will make my covenant between me and youi, and will multiply youi exceedingly.
3And Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation) fell on his face: and God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] talked with him, saying,
4As for me, behold, my covenant [is] with youi, and youi shall be a father of many nations.
5Neither shall youri name any more be called Avram (Exalted Father; Father Of Elevation), but youri name shall be Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] [father of many/They Will Fly]; for a father of many nations have I made youi.
6And I will make youi exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of youi, and kings shall come out of youi.
7And I will establish my covenant between me and youi and youri seed after youi in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] unto youi, and to youri seed after youi.
8And I will give unto youi, and to youri seed after youi, the land wherein youi are a stranger, all the land of Kena’an (merchant; trader; or that humbles and subdues), for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered].
9And God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] said unto Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will], Youi shall keep my covenant therefore, youi, and youri seed after youi in their generations.
10This [is] my covenant, which youf shall keep, between me and youi and youri seed after youi; Every man child among youi shall be circumcised.
11And youf shall circumcise the flesh of yourf foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant between me and you.
12And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in yourf generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which [is] not of youri seed.
13He that is born in youri house, and he that is bought with youri money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in yourf flesh for an everlasting covenant.
14And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he has broken my covenant.
15And God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] said unto Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will], As for Sarai (My Princess) youri wife, youi shall not call her name Sarai (My Princess), but Sarah [Princess] [shall] her name [be].
16And I will bless her, and give youi a son also of her: yes, I will bless her, and she shall be [a mother] of nations; kings of people shall be of her.
17Then Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall [a child] be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah [Princess], that is ninety years old, bear?
18And Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] said unto God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered], O that Yishma’el (He Will Hear God; God hears [EL]) might live before youi!
19And God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] said, Sarah [Princess] youri wife shall bear youi a son indeed; and youi shall call his name Yitz’chak [Laughter]: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, [and] with his seed after him.
20And as for Yishma’el (He Will Hear God; God hears [EL]), I have heard youi: Behold, I have Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget (to be father of; be ancestor of), and I will make him a great nation.
21But my covenant will I establish with Yitz’chak [Laughter], which Sarah [Princess] shall bear unto youi at this set time in the next year.
22And he left off talking with him, and God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] went up from Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will].
23And Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] took Yishma’el (He Will Hear God; God hears [EL]) his son, and all that were born in his house, and all that were bought with his money, every male among the men of Avraham’s [exalted father/Fly They Will] house; and circumcised the flesh of their foreskin in the selfsame day, as God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] had said unto him.
24And Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] [was] ninety years old and nine, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin.
25And Yishma’el (He Will Hear God; God hears [EL]) his son [was] thirteen years old, when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin.
26In the selfsame day was Avraham [exalted father/Fly They Will] circumcised, and Yishma’el (He Will Hear God; God hears [EL]) his son.
27And all the men of his house, born in the house, and bought with money of the stranger, were circumcised with him.

Circumcision, the Sign of the Covenant
1When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, “I am the Almighty God. Obey me and always do what is right. 2I will make my covenant with you and give you many descendants.” 3Abram bowed down with his face touching the ground, and God said, 4“I make this covenant with you: I promise that you will be the ancestor of many nations. 5#Ro 4.17 Your name will no longer be Abram, but Abraham,#17.5: Abraham: This name sounds like the Hebrew for “ancestor of many nations.” because I am making you the ancestor of many nations. 6I will give you many descendants, and some of them will be kings. You will have so many descendants that they will become nations.
7 # Lk 1.55 “I will keep my promise to you and to your descendants in future generations as an everlasting covenant. I will be your God and the God of your descendants. 8#Ac 7.5 I will give to you and to your descendants this land in which you are now a foreigner. The whole land of Canaan will belong to your descendants forever, and I will be their God.”
9God said to Abraham, “You also must agree to keep the covenant with me, both you and your descendants in future generations. 10#Ac 7.8; Ro 4.11 You and your descendants must all agree to circumcise every male among you. 11-12From now on you must circumcise every baby boy when he is eight days old, including slaves born in your homes and slaves bought from foreigners. This will show that there is a covenant between you and me. 13Each one must be circumcised, and this will be a physical sign to show that my covenant with you is everlasting. 14Any male who has not been circumcised will no longer be considered one of my people, because he has not kept the covenant with me.”
15God said to Abraham, “You must no longer call your wife Sarai; from now on her name is Sarah.#17.15: Sarah: This name in Hebrew means “princess.” 16I will bless her, and I will give you a son by her. I will bless her, and she will become the mother of nations, and there will be kings among her descendants.”
17Abraham bowed down with his face touching the ground, but he began to laugh when he thought, “Can a man have a child when he is a hundred years old? Can Sarah have a child at ninety?” 18He asked God, “Why not let Ishmael be my heir?”
19But God said, “No. Your wife Sarah will bear you a son and you will name him Isaac.#17.19: Isaac: This name in Hebrew means “he laughs.” I will keep my covenant with him and with his descendants forever. It is an everlasting covenant. 20I have heard your request about Ishmael, so I will bless him and give him many children and many descendants. He will be the father of twelve princes, and I will make a great nation of his descendants. 21But I will keep my covenant with your son Isaac, who will be born to Sarah about this time next year.” 22When God finished speaking to Abraham, he left him.
23On that same day Abraham obeyed God and circumcised his son Ishmael and all the other males in his household, including the slaves born in his home and those he had bought. 24Abraham was ninety-nine years old when he was circumcised, 25and his son Ishmael was thirteen. 26They were both circumcised on the same day, 27together with all of Abraham's slaves.
