GEN 17:1 And Abram is a son of ninety and nine years, and Jehovah appeareth unto Abram, and saith unto him, `I `am' God Almighty, walk habitually before Me, and be thou perfect;

GEN 17:2 and I give My covenant between Me and thee, and multiply thee very exceedingly.'

GEN 17:3 And Abram falleth upon his face, and God speaketh with him, saying,

GEN 17:4 `I -- lo, My covenant `is' with thee, and thou hast become father of a multitude of nations;

GEN 17:5 and thy name is no more called Abram, but thy name hath been Abraham, for father of a multitude of nations have I made thee;

GEN 17:6 and I have made thee exceeding fruitful, and made thee become nations, and kings go out from thee.

GEN 17:7 `And I have established My covenant between Me and thee, and thy seed after thee, to their generations, for a covenant age-during, to become God to thee, and to thy seed after thee;

GEN 17:8 and I have given to thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land of thy sojournings, the whole land of Canaan, for a possession age-during, and I have become their God.'

GEN 17:9 And God saith unto Abraham, `And thou dost keep My covenant, thou and thy seed after thee, to their generations;

GEN 17:10 this `is' My covenant which ye keep between Me and you, and thy seed after thee: Every male of you `is' to be circumcised;

GEN 17:11 and ye have circumcised the flesh of your foreskin, and it hath become a token of a covenant between Me and you.

GEN 17:12 `And a son of eight days is circumcised by you; every male to your generations, born in the house, or bought with money from any son of a stranger, who is not of thy seed;

GEN 17:13 he is certainly circumcised who `is' born in thine house, or bought with thy money; and My covenant hath become in your flesh a covenant age-during;

GEN 17:14 and an uncircumcised one, a male, the flesh of whose foreskin is not circumcised, even that person hath been cut off from his people; My covenant he hath broken.'

GEN 17:15 And God saith unto Abraham, `Sarai thy wife -- thou dost not call her name Sarai, for Sarah `is' her name;

GEN 17:16 and I have blessed her, and have also given to thee a son from her; and I have blessed her, and she hath become nations -- kings of peoples are from her.'

GEN 17:17 And Abraham falleth upon his face, and laugheth, and saith in his heart, `To the son of an hundred years is one born? or doth Sarah -- daughter of ninety years -- bear?'

GEN 17:18 And Abraham saith unto God, `O that Ishmael may live before Thee;'

GEN 17:19 and God saith, `Sarah thy wife is certainly bearing a son to thee, and thou hast called his name Isaac, and I have established My covenant with him, for a covenant age-during, to his seed after him.

GEN 17:20 As to Ishmael, I have heard thee; lo, I have blessed him, and made him fruitful, and multiplied him, very exceedingly; twelve princes doth he beget, and I have made him become a great nation;

GEN 17:21 and My covenant I establish with Isaac, whom Sarah doth bear to thee at this appointed time in the next year;'

GEN 17:22 and He finisheth speaking with him, and God goeth up from Abraham.

GEN 17:23 And Abraham taketh Ishmael his son, and all those born in his house, and all those bought with his money -- every male among the men of Abraham's house -- and circumciseth the flesh of their foreskin, in this self-same day, as God hath spoken with him.

GEN 17:24 And Abraham `is' a son of ninety and nine years in the flesh of his foreskin being circumcised;

GEN 17:25 and Ishmael his son `is' a son of thirteen years in the flesh of his foreskin being circumcised;

GEN 17:26 in this self-same day hath Abraham been circumcised, and Ishmael his son;

GEN 17:27 and all the men of his house -- born in the house, and bought with money from the son of a stranger -- have been circumcised with him.
