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.

14 And the uncircumeised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul lr shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant.

16 And I will bless her, "and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and tshe shall be a mother y of nations; kings of people shall be of her.

18 And Abraham said unto God, 0 that Ishmael might live before thee!

19 And God said, 'Sarah thy wife shall beiV 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.

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,d and I will make him a great nation.

21 But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, "which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next vear.

AND the Lokd appeared unto him in the 'plains of Mamre: and lie sat in the tent door in the heat of the day;

2 bAnd he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: c and when he saw than, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground,

3 And said, My Lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant:

4 Letd a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree:

5 And «I will fetch a morsel of bread, and t • comfort ye your hearts; after that ye shall pass on: s for therefore t are ye eoine to your servant. And they said, So do, as thou hast said.

6 And Abraham hastened into the tent unto Sarah, and said, tMake ready quickly three measures of line meal, knead it, and make cakes upon the hearth.

7 And Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetched a calf tender and good, and gave it unto a young man; and he hasted to dress it.

8 And hhe took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did cat.

thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him.

11 Now n Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.

13 Therefore Sarah p laughed within herself, saying, q After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my 'lord being old also?

13 And the Lord said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?

14 "Is any thing too hard for the Lord? 'At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.

15 Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And he said, Nay; but thou didst laugh.

16"T And the men rose up from thence, aud looked toward Sodom: and Abraham went with them "to bring them on the way.

17 And the Lord said, w Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do;

18 Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?

19 For I know him, rthat he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Loud, to do justice and judgment; that the Lord may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.

20 And the Lord said, Because zthe cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous,

21 1I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; aud if not, bI will know.

23 And the men turned their faces from thence, caud went toward Sodom: but Abraham J stood yet before the Lord.

23 T And Abraham drew near, and said, 'Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?

24 s Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare

the place for the fifty righteous that are therein?

25 That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked; and "that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: > Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?

26 And the Lord said, kIf I find in Sodom fitly righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.

27 And Abraham answered and said,1 Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am mbtit dust and ashes:

28 Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou destroy all the city for Jack of five? And he said, If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it.

29 And he spake unto him yet again, and said, Peradventure there shall be forty found there. And he said, I will not do it for forty's sake.

30 And he said unto him, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found there. And he said, I will not do it, if I find thirty there.

31 And he said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord: Peradventure there shall be twenty found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for twenty's sake.

32 And he said, »Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. "And he said, I will not destroy it for ten's sake.

33 And the Lord went his way, as soon as he had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place.

3 And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; fand he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.

4 1 But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:

5 'And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? »bring them out upto us, that we 'may know them.

6 And kLot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,

7 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.

8 i Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; "for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.

9 And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow "came in to sojourn, "and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door.

11 And they smote the men Pthat were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.

12 If And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, i bring them out of this place:

13 For we will destroy this place, because the rcrv of them

waxen great before the face of the Loire; and "the Lord hath sent us to destroy it.

11 And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, u Up, get you out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city. 1 But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.

15 IT And when the morning^ arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, y Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which tare here; lest thou be consumed in the lliuiquity of the city.

16 And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; ^ the Lord being merciful unto him: 'and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.

17 If And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, bEseape for thy life; clook not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.

18 And Lot said unto them, Oh, d not so, my Lord:

19 Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die:

20 Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it fa a little one: 0, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.

21 And he said unto him, See, «I have accepted t thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken.

23 Haste thee, escape thither; for fI cannot do any thing till thou be come thither. Therefore 'the name of the city was called II Zoar.

25 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and 'that which grew upon the ground.
