Genesis 21:1 And the Lord visited Sarah as he had said, and the Lord did unto
Sarah as he had spoken.
2 For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of
which God had spoken to him.
3 And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him, whom Sarah bare
to him, Isaac.
4 And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac being eight days old, as God had
5 And Abraham was an hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him.
6 And Sarah said, God hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh
Abraham was an hundred years old
7 And she said, Who would have said unto Abraham, that Sarah should have given
children suck? for I have born him a son in his old age.
8 And the child grew, and was weaned: and Abraham made a great feast the same
day that Isaac was weaned.
9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto Abraham,
10 Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her son: for the
son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac.
11 And the thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight because of his son.
12 And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the
lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said unto thee,
hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called.
13 And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation, because he is thy
14 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and a bottle of
water, and gave it unto Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and the child, and
sent her away: and she departed, and wandered in the wilderness of Beer-sheba.
15 And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the child under one of
16 And she went, and sat her down over against him a good way off, as it were a
bowshot: for she said, Let me not see the death of the child. And she sat over
against him, and lift up her voice, and wept.
17 And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar out
of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath
heard the voice of the lad where he is.
18 Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a
19 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and
filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink.
20 And God was with the lad; and he grew, and dwelt in the wilderness, and
became an archer.
21 And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran: and his mother took him a wife out
of the land of Egypt.
22 And it came to pass at that time, that Abimelech and Phichol the chief
captain of his host spake unto Abraham, saying, God is with thee in all that
23 Now therefore swear unto me here by God that thou wilt not deal falsely with
me, nor with my son, nor with my son's son: but according to the kindness that I
have done unto thee, thou shalt do unto me, and to the land wherein thou hast
24 And Abraham said, I will swear.
25 And Abraham reproved Abimelech because of a well of water, which Abimelech's
servants had violently taken away.
26 And Abimelech said, I wot not who hath done this thing: neither didst thou
tell me, neither yet heard I of it, but to day.
27 And Abraham took sheep and oxen, and gave them unto Abimelech; and both of
them made a covenant.
28 And Abraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by themselves.
29 And Abimelech said unto Abraham, What mean these seven ewe lambs which thou
hast set by themselves?
30 And he said, For these seven ewe lambs shalt thou take of my hand, that they
may be a witness unto me, that I have digged this well.
31 Wherefore he called that place Beer-sheba; because there they sware both of
32 Thus they made a covenant at Beer-sheba: then Abimelech rose up, and Phichol
the chief captain of his host, and they returned into the land of the
33 And Abraham planted a grove in Beer-sheba, and called there on the name of
the Lord, the everlasting God.
34 And Abraham sojourned in the Philistines' land many days.
• Exactly 2520 years from the exile
of Benjamin, Iceland became an independent nation.
The first tribe to be
conquered by the Assyrians was Manasseh,
in 745 B.C. Exactly 2520 years later America became a nation on July 4, 1776.
(Leviticus. 26: 28-46) God warned Israel that if they persisted in continually
breaking His Laws, not only would curses come upon them.
He would punish them for seven times, (a time being 360 years, seven times would
be 2520 years) and would banish them from the land of Palestine and scatter them
among the heathens (like lost sheep)
