13. He that is born in the house, and he that is bought with thy money, muft needs be circumcifed: and my covenant fhall be in your flesh for an everlasting 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.

Now Abraham and Sarah were old, and tricken in age: and it ceafed to be with after the manner of women. Therefore Sarah laughed within her faying, After I am waxed old, fhall I pleafore, my lord being old alfo? And the LORD faid unto Abraham, refore did Sarah laugh, faying, Shall I furety bear a child, which and old?
Naat is promised. 14 Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed will I return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sa rah fhall have a fon.
15 Then Sarah denied, faying, I laughed not for the was afraid. And he faid, 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 thall furely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth thall be bfeffed 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 19 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.
22 And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham ftood yet before the LORD.
234 And Abraham drew near, and said, 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 wick ed: 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 speak 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: Peradventure there thall be twenty found there. And he faid, I will not deftroy it for twenties 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 destroy it for tens fake.
33 And the LORD went his way, as foo as he had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham-returned unto his place.
17 And it came to pafs, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he faid, Efcape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither ftay thou in all the plain: efcape to the mountain, lelt thou be confumed.
18 And Lot faid unto them, Oh not fo, my Lord.
Lee entertainesh two angels.
Nd there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot fat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot feeing them, rofe up to meet them; and he bowed himlelf with his face toward the ground;
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 freet 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.
4 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.
21 And he faid unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing alfo, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou haft spoken.
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.
22 Hate thee, escape thither; for I cannot do any thing till thou be come thither: therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.
6 And Lot went, out at the door unto them, and fhut the door after him,
The fun was rifên upon the earth when Lot entred into Zoar.
And faid, I pray you, brethren, do not fo wickedly.
24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven.
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 these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the fhadow of my roof.
25 And he overthrew thofe cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.
26 4 But his wife looked back from behind 'hint, and fhe became a pillar of falt.
9 And they faid, Stand back. And they faid again, This one fellow came in to fojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worfe with thee, than with them. And. they preffed fore upon the aran, even Lot, and came near to break the door.
27 And Abraham gat up early in the morning, to the place where he stood before the LORD.
28 And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and lo, the fmoak of the country went up as the fmoak of a furnace.
10 But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and thut to the door.
II And they fmote the men that were at the door of the houfe with blindnels, both fmall and great fo that they wearied themfelves to find the door.
29 And it came to pals, when God detroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembred Abraham, and fent Lot out of the midit of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities, in the which Lot dwelt.
30 And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daugh
12 4 And the men faid unto Lot, Halt thou here any befides? fon in law, and thy fons,ters with him; for he feared to dwell in and thy daughters, and whatfoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place.
Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters.
13 For we will deftroy this place: becaufe the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the LORD, and the LORD hath fent us to destroy it.
314 And the firft-born faid unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth.
14 And Lot went out, and fpake unto his fons in law, which married his daughters, and laid, Up, get ye out of this place; for the LORD will destroy this city but he teemed as one that mocked unto his fons in law.
15 And when the morning arofe, then the angels haftned Lot, faying, Arife, take thy wife, and thy two daughters which are here; left thou be confumed in the iniquity of the city.
16 And while he lingred, the men laid hold upon his hand and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the LORD being merciful poto
19 Behold now, thy fervant hath found grace in thy fight, and thou haft magnified thy mercy, which thou haft thewed unto me in faving my life and I cannot efcape to the mountain, left fome evil take me, and I die.
20 Behold now, this city near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh let me escape thither, ( it not a little one?) and my foul fhall live.
32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preferve feed of our father.
33 And they made their father drink wine that night: and the first-born went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when the lay down, nor when the arofe.
34 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firft-born faid unto the younger, Be hold, I lay yefternight with my father let us make him drink wine this night allo; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preferve feed of our father.

17. So Abraham prayed unto God and God healed Abimelech and his wife, and his maid-fervants; and they bare children.
18 For the LORD had faft closed up all the wombs of the houfe of Abimelech, becaufe of Sarah Abrahams wife. CHAP. XXI.
1 Ifaac is born. 9 Hagar and hmaal are caft forth. 22 Abimelechs covenant with Abraham.
ANd the LORD vifited Sarah as he had faid, and the LORD did unto Sarah as he had spoken.
2 For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a fon in his old age, at the fet time of which God had fpoken to him.
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 commanded him.
s And Abraham was an hundred years old, when his fon Ifaac was born unto him.
64 And Sarah faid, God hath made me to laugh, fo that all that hear will laugh with me.
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.
99 And Sarah faw the fon of Hagar the Egyptian, which fhe had born unto Abraham, mocking.
10 Wherefore the 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, because of his fon.
12 And God faid unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy fight, because of the lad, and because of thy bond-woman; in all that Sarah hath faid unto thee, hearken unto her voice: for in Ifaac fhall thy feed be called.
13 And alfo of the fon of the bond-woman will I make a nation, becaufe he thy feed.
14 And Abraham rofe up early in the morning, and took bread, and a bottle of water, and gave it unto Hagar (putting it on her fhoulder) and the child, and fent her away: and the departed, and wandred in the wildernets of Beer-fheba.
