you are cleared before

by JPS / Varda Books
you are cleared before everyone.” 17Abraham then prayed to God, and God healed Abimelech and his wife and his slave girls, so that they bore children; 18for the LORD had closed fast every womb of the household of Abimelech because of Sarah, the wife of Abraham. 21 The LORD took note of Sarah as He had promised, and the LORD did for Sarah as He had spoken. 2Sarah conceived and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken. 3Abraham gave his newborn son, whom Sarah had borne him, the name of Isaac. 4And when his son Isaac was eight days old, Abraham circumcised him, as God had commanded him. 5Now Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him. 6Sarah said, “God has brought me laughter; everyone who hears will laugh witha me.” 7And she added, “Who would have said to Abraham That Sarah would suckle children! Yet I have borne a son in his old age.” 8The child grew up and was weaned, and Abraham held a great feast on the day that Isaac was weaned. 9Sarah saw the son whom Hagar the Egyptian had borne to Abraham playing. 10She said to Abraham, “Cast out that slave-woman and her son, for the son of that slave shall not share in the inheritance with my son Isaac.” 11The matter distressed Abraham greatly, for it concerned a son of his. 12But God said to Abraham, “Do not be distressed over the boy or your slave; whatever Sarah tells you, do as she says, for it is through Isaac that offspring shall be continuedb for you. 13As for the son of the slave-woman, I will make a nation of him, too, for he is your seed.” a Lit. “for.” b Lit. “called.” 37 ואמהתיו וילדו : 18 כי־עצר עצר יהוה בעד כל־רחם לבית אבימלך על־דבר שרה אשת אברהם : ס כא ויהוה פקד את־שרה כאשר אמר ויעש יהוה לשרה כאשר דבר : 2 ותהר ותלד שרה לאברהם בן לזקניו למועד אשר־דבר אתו אלהים : 3 ויקרא אברהם את־שם־בנו הנולד־לו אשר־ ילדה־לו שרה יצחק : 4 וימל אברהם את־יצחק בנו בן־שמנת ימים כאשר צוה אתו אלהים : 5 ואברהם בן־מאת שנה בהולד לו את יצחק בנו : 6 ותאמר שרה צחק עשה לי אלהים כל־השמע יצחק־לי : 7 ותאמר מי מלל לאברהם היניקה בנים שרה כי־ילדתי בן לזקניו : 8 ויגדל הילד ויגמל ויעש אברהם משתה גדול ביום הגמל את־יצחק : 9 ותרא שרה את־בן־הגר המצרית אשר־ ילדה לאברהם מצחק : 10 ותאמר לאברהם גרש האמה הזאת ואת־בנה כי לא יירש בן־האמה הזאת עם־בני עם־יצחק : 11 וירע הדבר מאד בעיני אברהם על אודת בנו : 12 ויאמר אלהים אל־אברהם אל־ירע בעיניך על־הנער ועל־אמתך כל אשר תאמר אליך שרה שמע בקלה כי ביצחק יקרא לך זרע : 13 וגם את־בן־האמה לגוי אשימנו כי זרעך הוא:
