Genesis 17

17:1 And when Abram was ninety and nine years old, the LORD
 appeared to Abram, and said to him, I [am] the Almighty God;
 walk before me, and be thou perfect.
17:2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will
 multiply thee exceedingly.
17:3 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him,
17:4 As for me, behold, my covenant [is] with thee, and thou
 shalt be a father of many nations.
17:5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy
 name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made
17:6 And I will make thee exceedingly fruitful, and I will make
 nations of thee; and kings shall proceed from thee.
17:7 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee, and
 thy seed after thee, in their generations, for an everlasting
 covenant; to be a God to thee and to thy seed after thee.
17:8 And I will give to thee, and to thy seed after thee, the
 land in which thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for
 an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.
17:9 And God said to Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant
 therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee, in their generations.
17:10 This [is] my covenant, which ye shall keep between me and
 you, and thy seed after thee; Every male-child among you shall
 be circumcised.
17:11 And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it
 shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.
17:12 And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among
 you, every male-child in your generations, he that is born in
 the house, or bought with money of any stranger, who [is] not
 of thy seed.
17:13 He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with
 thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be
 in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.
17:14 And the uncircumcised male-child, whose flesh of his
 foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from
 his people; he hath broken my covenant.
17:15 And God said to Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt
 not call her name Sarai, but Sarah [shall] her name [be].
17:16 And I will bless her, and give thee a son also by her:
 yea, I will bless her, and she shall be [a mother] of nations;
 kings of people shall proceed from her.
17:17 Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in
 his heart, Shall [a child] be born to him that is a hundred
 years old? and shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear?
17:18 And Abraham said to God, O that Ishmael might live before
17:19 And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed;
 and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my
 covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, [and] with his
 seed after him.
17:20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have
 blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him
 exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him
 a great nation.
17:21 But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, whom Sarah
 shall bear to thee at this set time in the next year.
17:22 And he ceased talking with him, and God went up from
17:23 And Abraham took Ishmael his son, and all that were born
 in his house, and all that were bought with his money, every
 male among the men of Abraham's house; and circumcised the
 flesh of their foreskin, in the same day, as God had said to
17:24 And Abraham [was] ninety and nine years old, when he was
 circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin.
17:25 And Ishmael his son [was] thirteen years old, when he was
 circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin.
17:26 In the same day was Abraham circumcised, and Ishmael his
17:27 And all the men of his house, born in the house, and
 bought with money of the stranger, were circumcised with him.
