Genesis 17

17
CHAPTER 17
1Forsooth after that Abram began to be of ninety years and nine, the Lord appeared to him, and said to him, I am Almighty God; go thou before me, and be thou perfect;
2and I shall set my covenant of peace betwixt me and thee; and I shall multiply thee full greatly.
3And Abram felled down low on his face. And God said to him,
4I am, and my covenant of peace is with thee, and thou shalt be the father of many folks;
5and thy name shall no more be called Abram, but thou shalt be called Abraham, for I have made thee [the] father of many folks;
6and I shall make thee to wax full greatly, and I shall set thee in folks, and kings shall go out of thee;
7and I shall make my covenant between me and thee, and between thy seed after thee, in their generations, by everlasting bond of peace, that I be thy God, and of thy seed after thee;
8and I shall give to thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land of thy pilgrimage, all the land of Canaan, into everlasting possession, and I shall be the God of them.
9God said again to Abraham, And therefore thou shalt keep my covenant, and thy seed after thee, in their generations.
10This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, betwixt me and you, and thy seed after thee; each male kind of you shall be circumcised,
11and ye shall circumcise the flesh of your man’s rod, that it be into a sign of bond of peace betwixt me and you.
12A young child of eight days shall be circumcised in you, all male kind in your generations, as well a born servant [of your household], as a servant bought, shall be circumcised,
13and whoever is of your kindred, he shall be circumcised; and my covenant shall be in your flesh into everlasting bond of peace.
14A man whose flesh of his rod shall not be circumcised, that man shall be done away from his people; for he made void my covenant.
15Also God said to Abraham, Thou shalt not call Sarai, thy wife, Sarai, but Sarah;
16and I shall bless her, and of her I shall give to thee a son, whom I shall bless, and he shall be into nations, and kings of peoples shall be born of him.
17Abraham felled down on his face, and laughed in his heart, and said, Guessest thou, whether a child shall be born to a man of an hundred years, and Sarah of ninety years shall bear a child?
18And he said to the Lord, I would that Ishmael might live before thee.
19And the Lord said to Abraham, Sarah, thy wife, shall bear a son to thee, and thou shalt call his name Isaac, and I shall make my covenant with him into everlasting bond of peace, and to his seed after him;
20also on Ishmael I have heard thee, lo! I shall bless him, and I shall increase him, and I shall multiply him greatly; he shall engender twelve dukes, and I shall make him into a great folk.
21Forsooth I shall make my covenant with Isaac, whom Sarah shall child to thee in this time in the tother year.
22And when the word of the speaker with him was ended, God ascended from Abraham.
23Forsooth Abraham took Ishmael, his son, and all the born servants of his house, and all which he had bought, all the males of all men of his house, and circumcised the flesh of their rods, anon in that day, as the Lord commanded to him.
24Abraham was of ninety years and nine when he circumcised the flesh of his rod,
25and Ishmael, his son, had filled thirteen years in the time of his circumcision.
26Abraham was circumcised in the same day, and Ishmael his son,
27and all the men of his house, as well born servants, as those bought and aliens, were circumcised together.

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.
