The Lord said,

“I am almighty God; I have promised that you will be the father of many nations.

From now on you will be called Abraham and your wife Sarai will be called Sarah.

I will bless her with a son.”


Abraham couldn’t help but laugh, “Your going to give us a child? That’s impossible! I am one hundred years old and my wife Sarah is ninety years old! How can this be?”


The Lord continued, “Sarah, your wife, will have a son and you will call him Isaac: I will make an agreement with him and I will bless him with a lot of land.

As for your other son, Ishmael, I will bless him too and from him will come twelve great princes, but my agreement will be with Isaac.”
