katapi HOME Genesis 21:22-34 - Beersheba - Abraham's agreement with Abimelech.  Gn.21.22-34

21 22 At that time Abimelech and Phicol the commander of his army said to Abraham, "God is with you in all that you do; 21 23 now therefore swear to me here by God that you will not deal falsely with me or with my offspring or with my posterity, but as I have dealt loyally with you, you will deal with me and with the land where you have sojourned." 21 24 And Abraham said, "I will swear."

21 25 When Abraham complained to Abimelech about a well of water which Abimelech's servants had seized, 21 26 Abimelech said, "I do not know who has done this thing; you did not tell me, and I have not heard of it until today." 21 27 So Abraham took sheep and oxen and gave them to Abimelech, and the two men made a covenant. 21 28 Abraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock apart. 21 29 And Abimelech said to Abraham, "What is the meaning of these seven ewe lambs which you have set apart?" 21 30 He said, "These seven ewe lambs you will take from my hand, that you may be a witness for me that I dug this well." 21 31 Therefore that place was called Beer-sheba; because there both of them swore an oath. 21 32 So they made a covenant at Beer-sheba. Then Abimelech and Phicol the commander of his army rose up and returned to the land of the Philistines. 21 33 Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beer-sheba, and called there on the name of Yahweh, the Everlasting God. 21 34 And Abraham sojourned many days in the land of the Philistines.
