I am God All-Powerful. If you obey me and always do right, I will keep my solemn promise to you and give you more descendants than can be counted.
you will be the leader of many nations, I will always keep my promise. But you must promise to obey me, in order for you to keep this promise every man and boy shall be circumcised anyone who is not circimsised has not kept his promise with me.
That’s why I now change your name from Abram to Abraham. Your wife’s name will now be Sarah instead of Sarai. I will bless her, and you will have a son by her.
I am almost a hundred years old. How can I become a father? And Sarah is ninety. How can she have a child?
No! You and Sarah will have a son. His name will be Isaac, and I will make an everlasting promise to him and his descendants.
Why not let Ishmael inherit what you have promised me?
I have heard what you asked me to do for Ishmael, and so I will also bless him with many descendants. He will be the father of twelve princes, and I will make his family a great nation. But your son Isaac will be born about this time next year, and the promise I am making to you and your family will be for him and his descendants forever.
