American Standard Version

Young's Literal Translation
and Sarah laugheth in her heart, saying, 'After I have waxed old I have had pleasure! -- my lord also is old!'
Genesis 18:13 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
And the Lord (Jehovah) said, etc. - So it appears that one of those three persons was Jehovah, and as this name is never given to any created being, consequently the ever-blessed God is intended; and as he was never seen in any bodily shape, consequently the great Angel of the covenant, Jesus Christ, must be meant. See note on Genesis 16:7.
