1 When Abram was ninety-nine years old Yahweh appeared to him and said, 'I am El Shaddai. Live in my presence, be perfect,
Gen 6:9 Luke 1:6 Job 1:1 Ps 116:9 Isa 38:3 Deut 18:13 Phil 4:13
2 and I shall grant a covenant between myself and you, and make you very numerous.'
Gen 17:4-6 Gen 12:2 Gen 13:16 Gen 15:18 Gal 3:17-18 Gen 9:9 Gen 22:17
3 And Abram bowed to the ground. God spoke to him as follows,
Gen 17:17 1Kgs 18:39 Dan 8:17-18 Dan 10:9 Exod 3:6 Ezek 1:28 Ezek 3:23
4 'For my part, this is my covenant with you: you will become the father of many nations.
Gen 35:11 Gen 12:2 Gal 3:28-29 Gen 13:16 Gen 16:10 Gen 22:17 Gen 25:1-18
5 And you are no longer to be called Abram; your name is to be Abraham, for I am making you father of many nations.
Neh 9:7 Gen 17:15 Gen 32:28 Isa 62:2-4 Matt 1:21-23 Rom 4:17 2Sam 12:25
6 I shall make you exceedingly fertile. I shall make you into nations, and your issue will be kings.
Gen 17:4 Gen 35:11 Gen 17:16 Ezra 4:20 Gen 17:20 Gen 36:31-43 Matt 1:6-17
7 And I shall maintain my covenant between myself and you, and your descendants after you, generation after generation, as a covenant in perpetuity, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you.
Gen 26:24 Gen 15:18 Gen 28:13 Heb 11:16 Acts 2:39 Heb 8:10 Lev 26:12
8 And to you and to your descendants after you, I shall give the country where you are now immigrants, the entire land of Canaan, to own in perpetuity. And I shall be their God.'
Lev 26:12 Gen 12:7 Deut 29:13 Exod 6:7 Gen 13:15 Ps 105:11 Deut 14:2
9 God further said to Abraham, 'You for your part must keep my covenant, you and your descendants after you, generation after generation.
Isa 56:4-5 Ps 25:10 Ps 103:18
10 This is my covenant which you must keep between myself and you, and your descendants after you: every one of your males must be circumcised.
Acts 7:8 Col 2:11-12 Rom 4:9-11 1Cor 7:18-19 Deut 10:16 Deut 30:6 Eph 2:11
11 You must circumcise the flesh of your foreskin, and that will be the sign of the covenant between myself and you.
Rom 4:11 Acts 7:8 1Sam 18:25-27 2Sam 3:14 Deut 10:16 Exod 4:25 Exod 12:48
12 As soon as he is eight days old, every one of your males, generation after generation, must be circumcised, including slaves born within the household or bought from a foreigner not of your descent.
Lev 12:3 Luke 2:21 Luke 1:59 Phil 3:5 Exod 12:48-49 Acts 7:8 Gen 17:23
13 Whether born within the household or bought, they must be circumcised. My covenant must be marked in your flesh as a covenant in perpetuity.
Exod 12:44 Exod 21:2 Exod 21:4 Exod 21:16 Gen 14:14 Gen 15:3 Gen 37:27
14 The uncircumcised male, whose foreskin has not been circumcised -- that person must be cut off from his people: he has broken my covenant.'
Exod 4:24-26 1Cor 11:27 1Cor 11:29 Exod 12:15 Exod 12:19 Exod 30:33 Exod 30:38
15 Furthermore God said to Abraham, 'As regards your wife Sarai, you must not call her Sarai, but Sarah.
2Sam 12:25 Gen 17:5 Gen 32:28
16 I shall bless her and moreover give you a son by her. I shall bless her and she will become nations: kings of peoples will issue from her.'
Gen 35:11 Gen 17:6 1Pet 3:6 Gal 4:26-31 Gen 1:28 Gen 12:2 Gen 18:10-14
17 Abraham bowed to the ground, and he laughed, thinking to himself, 'Is a child to be born to a man one hundred years old, and will Sarah have a child at the age of ninety?'
Gen 21:6 Gen 17:3 Gen 18:12 John 8:56 1Chr 21:16 Dan 8:17 Deut 9:18
18 Abraham said to God, 'May Ishmael live in your presence! That will be enough!'
Acts 2:39 Jer 32:39 Gen 4:12 Gen 4:14 Isa 59:2 Ps 4:6 Ps 41:12
19 But God replied, 'Yes, your wife Sarah will bear you a son whom you must name Isaac. And I shall maintain my covenant with him, a covenant in perpetuity, to be his God and the God of his descendants after him.
Luke 1:13-20 Gal 4:28-31 Gen 21:2-3 Gen 21:6 Rom 9:6-9 2Kgs 4:16-17 Gen 18:10-14
20 For Ishmael too I grant you your request. I hereby bless him and will make him fruitful and exceedingly numerous. He will be the father of twelve princes, and I shall make him into a great nation.
Gen 21:18 Gen 21:13 Gen 25:12-18 Gen 16:10-12
21 But my covenant I shall maintain with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear you at this time next year.'
Gen 18:10 Gen 26:2-5 Acts 1:7 Exod 3:6 Gal 3:29 Gen 21:2-3 Gen 21:10-12
22 When he had finished speaking to Abraham, God went up from him.
Gen 18:33 Deut 5:4 Exod 20:22 Gen 17:3 Gen 35:9-15 John 1:18 John 10:30
23 Then Abraham took his son Ishmael, all the slaves born in his household or whom he had bought, in short all the males among the people of Abraham's household, and circumcised their foreskins that same day, as God had said to him.
1Cor 7:18-19 Acts 16:3 Eccl 9:10 Gal 5:6 Gal 6:15 Gen 17:10-14 Gen 17:26-27
24 Abraham was ninety-nine years old when his foreskin was circumcised.
Rom 4:11 Gen 12:4 Gen 17:1 Gen 17:17 Rom 4:19-20
25 Ishmael his son was thirteen years old when his foreskin was circumcised.
26 Abraham and his son Ishmael were circumcised on the very same day,
Gen 12:4 Gen 22:3-4 Ps 119:60
27 and all the men of his household, those born in the household and those bought from foreigners, were circumcised with him.
