5 No longer shall your nameXXIV beXXV Abram, but your name shall be Abraham;XXVI for I have made you the ancestor of a multitude of nations. 6 I will make you exceedingly fruitful;XXVII and I will make nations of you, and kings shall comeXXVIII from you.
7 I will establishXXIX my covenant between me and you, and your offspringXXX after you throughout their generations,XXXI for an everlastingXXXII covenant, to be GodXXXIII to you and to your offspring after you.
9 GodXLI said to Abraham, “As for you, you shall keepXLII my covenant, you and your offspring after you throughout their generations. 10 This is my covenant, which you shall keep, between me and you and your offspring after you: Every maleXLIII among you shall be circumcised.XLIV
12 Throughout your generations every male among you shall be circumcised when he is eightXLIX days old, including the slave bornL in your houseLI and the one boughtLII with your moneyLIII from any foreignerLIV who is not of your offspring.
13 Both the slave born in your house and the one bought with your money must be circumcised.LV So shall my covenant be in your flesh an everlasting covenant. 14 Any uncircumcisedLVI male who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskinLVII shall be cut offLVIII from his people;LIX he has brokenLX my covenant.”
18 And Abraham said to God,LXXV “O that IshmaelLXXVI might liveLXXVII in your sight!”
19 GodLXXVIII said, “No, butLXXIX your wife Sarah shall bear you a son, and you shall nameLXXX him Isaac.LXXXI I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his offspring after him.
20 As for Ishmael, I have heardLXXXII you;LXXXIII I will bless him and make him fruitful and exceedingly numerous; he shall be the father ofLXXXIV twelveLXXXV princes,LXXXVI and I will make him a greatLXXXVII nation.
23 Then Abraham took his son Ishmael and all the slaves born in his house or bought with his money, every male among the menXCIII of Abraham’s house, and he circumcised the flesh of their foreskins that veryXCIV day, as GodXCV had said to him. 24 Abraham was ninety-nine years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. 25 And his son Ishmael was thirteenXCVI years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. 26 That very day Abraham and his son Ishmael were circumcised; 27 and all the men of his house, slaves born in the house and those bought with money from a foreigner, were circumcised with him.
