6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee; and kings fhall come out of thee.
And I will establish my covenant between me and thee, and thy feed after thee, in their generations for an everlasting covenant; to be a God unto thee, and to thy feed after thee.
8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy feed after thee, the land wherein thou art a ftran ger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting poffeffion; and I will be their God.
99 And God faid unto Abram, Thou fhalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy feed after thee in their generations.

12 And he that is eight days old fall be circumcifed among you, every man-child in your generations, he that is born in the houfe, or bought with money of any ftran ger, which is not of thy feed.
13 He that is born in the house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcifed: and my covenant fhall be in your flesh for an everlafting covenant.
14 And the uncircumcifed man-child whofe flesh of his fore-skin is not circumcifed, that foul fhall be cut off from his people: he hath broken my covenant.

15 Then Sarah denied, faying, I laughed not for the was afraid. And he said, Nay, but thou didst laugh.
16 And the men rofe up from thence, and looked toward Sodom: and Abraham went with them to bring them on the way. 17 And the LORD faid, fhall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do;
18 Seeing that Abraham fhall furely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nati ons of the earth thall be blefled in him?
19 For I know him, that he will command his children and his houthold after him, and they fhall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath fpoken of him.
20 And the LORD faid, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their fin 18 very grievous;
21 I will go down now, and fee whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know. their faces from
A plains of Mama and he at in the tent thence, and went toward Sodom: but bra

2 And he lift up his eyes and looked, and lo, three men flood by him: and when he faw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground,
3 And faid, My Lord, if now I have found favour in thy fight, país not away, I pray thee, from thy fervant.
4 Let a little water, I pray you, be fetch ed, and wash your feet, and reft your felves under the tree.
And I will fetch a morfel of bread, and comfort ye your hearts; after that you' fhall pais on for therefore are ye come to your fervant. And they faid, So do as thou haft faid.
6 And Abraham haftned unto the tent unto Sarah, and faid, Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes upon the hearth.
7 And Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetcht a calf tender and good, and gave it unto a young man; and he hafted to drefs it.
8 And he took butter and milk, and the calf which he had dreffed, and fet it before thes and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat.
99 And they faid unto him, Where Sarah thy wife? and he faid, Behold, in the tent. 10 And he faid, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and lo, Sarah thy wife fhall have a fon, And Sarah heard it in the tent-door, which was behind him.
11 Now Abraham and Sarah were old, and well ftricken in age: and it ceafed to be with Sarah after the manner of women.
12 Therefore Sarah laughed within her felf, faying, After I am waxed old, fhall I have pleafare, my lord being old alfo? 13 And the LORD faid unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, faying, Shalli a furety bear a child, which and old?

23 And Abraham drew near, and faid, Wilt thou alfo destroy the righteous with the wicked?
24 Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou alfo deftroy, and not fpare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein?
25 That be far from thee to do after this manner, to flay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous fhould be as the wicked, that be far from thee: fhall not the Judge of all the earth do right?
26 And the LORD faid, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will fpare all the place for their fakes.
27And Abraham anfwered and faid,Behold now, I have taken upon me to fpeak unto the Lord, which am but duft and alhes.
28 Perad enture there fhall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou deftroy all the city for lack of five? And he faid, If I find there forty and five, I will not deftroy it.
29 And he fpake unto him yet again, and faid, Peradventure there fhall be forty found there. And he faid, I will not do it for forties fake.
30 And he faid unto him, Oh let not the Lord be angry,and I will fpeak:Peradventure there fhall thirty be found there. And he faid, I will not do it, if I find thirty there.
31 And he faid, Behold, now I have taken upon me to peak unto the Lord: Peradven ture there thall be twenty found there. And he faid, I will not deftroy it for twen ties fake.
32. And he faid, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will fpeak yet but this once: Per adventure ten fhall be found there. And he faid, I will not deftroy it for tens fake.

And there came two angels to Sodom at cape for thy life; look not behind thee, nei

2 And he laid, Behold now my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your fervants houfe, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye fhall rife up early, and go on your ways. And they laid, Nay, but we will abide in the fureet all night.
3 And he preffed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entred into his houte: and he made them a feaft, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.
44 But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compaffed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter.
5 And they called unto Lot, and faid unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.
6 And Lot went out at the door unto them, and fhut the door after him,
And faid, I pray you, brethren, do not fo wickedly.
8 Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as good in your eyes: only unto thefe men do nothing; for therefore came they under the fhadow of my roof.

15 And when the morning arofe, then the angels haftned Lot, laying, Arife, take thy wife, and thy two daughters which are here; left thou be confumed in the iniquity of the city.

3 But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and faid to him, Behold, thou art but a dead man, for the woman which thou haft taken: for he is a mans wife.
4 But Abimelech had not come near her: and he faid, LORD, wilt thou flay alfo a righteous nation?
Said he not unto me, She is my fifter? and the, even the her felf faid, He my brother: in the integrity of my heart, and inno cency of my hands have I done this.
6 And God faid unto him in a dream, Yea, I know that thou didst this in the integrity of thy heart; for I alfo withheld thee from finning againft me: therefore fuffered I thee not to touch her.
7 Now therefore reftore the man his wife; for he is a prophet, and he fhall pray for thee, and thou thalt live and if thou re ftore her not, know thou that thou shalt furely die, thou, and all that are thine.
8 Therefore Abimelech role early in the morning, and called all his fervants, and told all these things in their ears: and the men were fere afraid.
9 Then Abimelech called Abraham, and faid unto him, What haft thou done unto us? and what have I offended thee, that thou haft brought on me and on my kingdom a great fin? thou haft done deeds unto me that ought not to be done.
10 And Abimelech faid unto Abraham, What faweft thou, that thou haft done this thing?

3 And Abraham called the name of his fon that was born unto him, whom Sarah bare to him, Ifaac.
4 And Abraham circumcifed his fon Ifaac, being eight days old, as God had command
And Abraham was an hundred years old, when his fon Ifaac was born unto him.

And the faid, who would have faid unto Abraham, that Sarah fhould have given children fuck? for I have born bim a fen in his old age.
8 And the child grew, and was weaned; and Abraham made a great feast the fame day that Ifaac was weaned.

10 Wherefore fhe faid unto Abraham, Caft out this bond-woman, and her fon for the fon of this bond-woman fhall not be heir with my fon, even with Ifaac.
11 And the thing was very grievous in Abrahams fight, becaufe of his lon.
