創世記 21:1-34

以撒出生

1耶和華按著自己說過的話眷顧撒拉,實現給她的應許。 2亞伯拉罕年老的時候,撒拉懷了孕,在上帝指定的日期為他生了一個兒子。 3亞伯拉罕為兒子取名叫以撒4以撒出生後第八天,亞伯拉罕就照著上帝的吩咐為他行了割禮。 5以撒出生時亞伯拉罕已經一百歲。 6撒拉說:「上帝使我歡笑,凡聽見這事的人也必跟我一同歡笑。 7誰曾料到我會為亞伯拉罕哺養孩子呢?我竟然在丈夫年老的時候給他生了兒子。」

夏甲和以實瑪利被逐

8以撒漸漸長大,亞伯拉罕在他斷奶的那天擺設宴席。 9撒拉埃及夏甲亞伯拉罕生的兒子以實瑪利嘲笑以撒10就對亞伯拉罕說:「趕走這婢女和她的兒子,因為這婢女的兒子不可和我的兒子以撒一同承受產業。」 11亞伯拉罕因兒子以實瑪利的事非常煩惱。 12上帝對亞伯拉罕說:「你不要再為這孩子和你的婢女煩惱,只管照撒拉的意思去做,因為以撒生的才可算為你的後代。 13至於那婢女的兒子以實瑪利,我也會使他自成一國,因為他也是你的兒子。」

14第二天,亞伯拉罕清早起來,把食物和一皮袋水放在夏甲肩上,讓她和孩子離開。夏甲別示巴的曠野流浪。 15皮袋的水喝光了,夏甲把兒子留在一叢灌木下, 16自己走到離孩子約一箭之遠的地方,對著孩子坐下,說:「我不忍心看著他死啊!」夏甲坐在那裡放聲大哭起來。 17上帝聽見孩子的哭聲,就差遣天使從天上安慰夏甲說:「夏甲,你怎麼了?不要害怕,上帝已經聽見孩子的哭聲了。 18你去扶他起來,安慰他,我必使他成為大國。」 19上帝使夏甲的眼睛明亮,讓她看見一口水井,她就上前把皮袋裝滿水拿給兒子喝。 20在上帝的看顧下,孩子在曠野漸漸長大,成為一個射箭能手。 21他住在巴蘭曠野,他母親為他娶了一個埃及女子。

亞伯拉罕與亞比米勒立約

22有一次,亞比米勒和他的將領非各亞伯拉罕說:「你做的一切都有上帝保佑。 23現在請你在這裡當著上帝的面向我起誓,你不會欺騙我和我的子孫後代。我怎樣善待你,請你也同樣善待我以及你所寄居之地的百姓。」 24亞伯拉罕說:「我願起誓。」

25由於亞比米勒的僕人霸佔了一口水井,亞伯拉罕就指責亞比米勒26亞比米勒說:「我不知道是誰做的,你以前沒有告訴我,我今天才聽說這事。」 27亞伯拉罕把牛羊送給亞比米勒,他們二人立了約。 28亞伯拉罕又從羊群中分出七隻母羊羔。 29亞比米勒亞伯拉罕:「你分出七隻母羊羔是什麼意思?」 30亞伯拉罕回答說:「你要從我手中接受這七隻母羊羔,表示你承認這口井是我挖的。」 31所以,那地方被稱為別示巴21·31 別示巴」意思是「盟誓之井」。,因為他們二人在那裡起了誓。

32他們立約以後,亞比米勒和他的將領非各便回非利士去了。 33亞伯拉罕別示巴栽了一棵紅柳,又在那裡呼求耶和華——永恆上帝的名。 34亞伯拉罕非利士住了很長時間。

King James Version

Genesis 21:1-34

1And the LORD visited Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did unto Sarah as he had spoken. 2For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. 3And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him, whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac. 4And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac being eight days old, as God had commanded him. 5And Abraham was an hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him.

6¶ And Sarah said, God hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me. 7And she said, Who would have said unto Abraham, that Sarah should have given children suck? for I have born him a son in his old age. 8And the child grew, and was weaned: and Abraham made a great feast the same day that Isaac was weaned.

9¶ And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto Abraham, mocking. 10Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her son: for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac. 11And the thing was very grievous in Abraham’s sight because of his son.

12¶ And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called. 13And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation, because he is thy seed.

14And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and a bottle of water, and gave it unto Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and the child, and sent her away: and she departed, and wandered in the wilderness of Beer-sheba. 15And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the child under one of the shrubs. 16And she went, and sat her down over against him a good way off, as it were a bowshot: for she said, Let me not see the death of the child. And she sat over against him, and lift up her voice, and wept. 17And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is. 18Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a great nation. 19And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink. 20And God was with the lad; and he grew, and dwelt in the wilderness, and became an archer. 21And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran: and his mother took him a wife out of the land of Egypt.

22¶ And it came to pass at that time, that Abimelech and Phichol the chief captain of his host spake unto Abraham, saying, God is with thee in all that thou doest: 23Now therefore swear unto me here by God that thou wilt not deal falsely with me, nor with my son, nor with my son’s son: but according to the kindness that I have done unto thee, thou shalt do unto me, and to the land wherein thou hast sojourned.21.23 that thou…: Heb. if thou shalt lie unto me 24And Abraham said, I will swear. 25And Abraham reproved Abimelech because of a well of water, which Abimelech’s servants had violently taken away. 26And Abimelech said, I wot not who hath done this thing: neither didst thou tell me, neither yet heard I of it, but to day. 27And Abraham took sheep and oxen, and gave them unto Abimelech; and both of them made a covenant. 28And Abraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by themselves. 29And Abimelech said unto Abraham, What mean these seven ewe lambs which thou hast set by themselves? 30And he said, For these seven ewe lambs shalt thou take of my hand, that they may be a witness unto me, that I have digged this well. 31Wherefore he called that place Beer-sheba; because there they sware both of them.21.31 Beer-sheba: that is, The well of the oath 32Thus they made a covenant at Beer-sheba: then Abimelech rose up, and Phichol the chief captain of his host, and they returned into the land of the Philistines.

33¶ And Abraham planted a grove in Beer-sheba, and called there on the name of the LORD, the everlasting God.21.33 grove: or, tree 34And Abraham sojourned in the Philistines’ land many days.
