Genesis 17:1

1And when Abram was ninetie yeres old and nine, the LORD appeared to
Abram, and said vnto him, I am the almightie God, walke before me, and be
thou perfect.
2And I wil make my couenant betweene me and thee, and will multiply thee
3And Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying,
4As for me, behold, my couenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of
many nations.
5Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall bee
Abraham: for a father of many nations haue I made thee.
6And I will make thee exceeding fruitfull, and I will make nations of thee,
and Kings shall come out of thee.
7And I will establish my couenant betweene me and thee, and thy seede
after thee, in their generations for an euerlasting couenant, to bee a God
vnto thee, and to thy seed after thee.
8And I will giue vnto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou
art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an euerlasting possession, and I
will be their God.
9¶ And God said vnto Abraham, Thou shalt keepe my couenant therefore,
thou, and thy seede after thee, in their generations.
10This is my couenant, which yee shall keepe betweene me and you, and
thy seed after thee: euery man child among you shall be circumcised.
11And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskinne; and it shal be a
token of the couenant betwixt me and you.
12And he that is eight dayes olde, shalbe circumcised among you, euery
man child in your generations, he that is borne in the house, or bought with
money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed.
13He that is borne in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money,
must needs be circumcised: and my couenant shall be in your flesh, for an
euerlasting couenant.
14And the vncircumcised man-child, whose flesh of his foreskinne is not
circumcised, that soule shall be cut off from his people: hee hath broken my
15¶ And God said vnto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call
her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be.
16And I will blesse her, and giue thee a sonne also of her: yea I wil blesse
her, and she shalbe a mother of nations; Kings of people shall be of her.
17Then Abraham fell vpon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall
a child be borne vnto him that is an hundred yeeres old? and shal Sarah that
is ninetie yeeres old, beare?
18And Abraham said vnto God, O that Ishmael might liue before thee.
19And God said, Sarah thy wife shall beare thee a sonne in deede, and thou
shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my couenant with him, for an
euerlasting couenant, and with his seed after him.
20And as for Ishmael, I haue heard thee: behold, I haue blessed him, and
will make him fruitfull, and will multiplie him exceedingly: Twelue princes
shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.
21But my couenant wil I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall beare vnto
thee, at this set time, in the next yeere.
22And he left off talking with him, and God went vp from Abraham.
23¶ And Abraham tooke Ishmael his sonne, and all that were borne in his
house, and all that were bought with his money, euery male, among the
men of Abrahams house, and circumcised the flesh of their foreskinne, in the
selfesame day, as God had said vnto him.
24And Abraham was ninety yeeres old and nine, when he was circumcised
in the flesh of his foreskinne.
25And Ishmael his sonne was thirteene yeeres old, when he was
circumcised in the flesh of his foreskinne.
26In the selfe same day was Abraham circumcised, and Ishmael his sonne.
27And all the men of his house, borne in the house, and bought with money
of the stranger, were circumcised with him.
