Genesis 17
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And Abram is a son of ninety-nine years, and YHWH appears to Abram, and says to him, “I [am] God Almighty, habitually walk before Me, and be perfect;

2and I give My covenant between Me and you, and multiply you very exceedingly.”

3And Abram falls on his face, and God speaks with him, saying,

4“I—behold, My covenant [is] with you, and you have become father of a multitude of nations;

5and your name is no longer called Abram, but your name has been Abraham, for father of a multitude of nations have I made you;

6and I have made you exceedingly fruitful, and made you become nations, and kings go out from you. 7And I have established My covenant between Me and you, and your seed after you, throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant, to become God to you, and to your seed after you; 8and I have given to you, and to your seed after you, the land of your sojournings, the whole land of Canaan, for a continuous possession, and I have become their God.”

9And God says to Abraham, “And you keep My covenant, you and your seed after you, throughout their generations; 10this [is] My covenant which you keep between Me and you, and your seed after you: every male of you [is] to be circumcised; 11and you have circumcised the flesh of your foreskin, and it has become a token of a covenant between Me and you. 12And a son of eight days is circumcised by you; every male throughout your generations, born in the house, or bought with money from any son of a stranger, who is not of your seed; 13he is certainly circumcised who [is] born in your house, or bought with your money; and My covenant has become in your flesh a perpetual covenant; 14and an uncircumcised one, a male, the flesh of whose foreskin is not circumcised, indeed, that person has been cut off from his people; My covenant he has broken.”

15And God says to Abraham, “Sarai your wife—you do not call her name Sarai, for Sarah [is] her name; 16and I have blessed her, and have also given to you a son from her; and I have blessed her, and she has become nations—kings of peoples are from her.” 17And Abraham falls on his face, and laughs, and says in his heart, “Is one born to the son of one hundred years? Or does Sarah—daughter of ninety years—bear?” 18And Abraham says to God, “O that Ishmael may live before You”; 19and God says, “Your wife Sarah is certainly bearing a son to you, and you have called his name Isaac, and I have established My covenant with him, for a perpetual covenant, to his seed after him. 20As for Ishmael, I have heard you; behold, I have blessed him, and made him fruitful, and multiplied him, very exceedingly; twelve princes does he beget, and I have made him become a great nation; 21and My covenant I establish with Isaac, whom Sarah does bear to you at this appointed time in the next year”; 22and He finishes speaking with him, and God goes up from Abraham.

23And Abraham takes his son Ishmael, and all those born in his house, and all those bought with his money—every male among the men of Abraham’s house and circumcises the flesh of their foreskin, in this very same day, as God has spoken with him. 24And Abraham [is] a son of ninety-nine years in the flesh of his foreskin being circumcised; 25and his son Ishmael [is] a son of thirteen years in the flesh of his foreskin being circumcised; 26in this very same day Abraham has been circumcised, and his son Ishmael; 27and 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.
