Genesis 21:17  Genesis 21:34

17 And God heard the voice of the boy. And the Angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven and said to her, What troubles you, Hagar? Do not be afraid, for God has heard the voice of the boy where he is.

18 Rise up; lift up the boy, and hold him with your hand, for I will make him a great nation.

19 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water. And she went and filled the waterskin with water and gave the boy a drink.

20 And God was with the boy, and he grew. And he dwelt in the wilderness and became an archer.

21 And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran. And his mother took a wife for him from the land of Egypt.

22 And at that time Abimelech and Phicol the captain of his army spoke to Abraham, saying, God is with you in all that you do.

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. According to the kindness that I have shown to you, you shall do to me and to the land in which you have sojourned.

24 And Abraham said, I swear it.

25 And Abraham confronted Abimelech concerning the well of water which Abimelech’s servants had taken by force.

26 And Abimelech said, I do not know who has done this thing; and you did not tell me about it, nor have I even heard of it until today.

27 And Abraham took sheep and oxen and gave them to Abimelech. And the two of them made a covenant.

28 And Abraham set seven ewe lambs of the flock by themselves.

29 And Abimelech said to Abraham, What is the meaning of these seven ewe lambs which you have set by themselves?

30 And he said, These seven ewe lambs you shall take from my hand, that it may be a witness for me that I dug this well.

31 Therefore he called that place Beer-sheba, because there the two of them swore an oath.

32 So they made a covenant at Beer-sheba; and Abimelech rose up with Phicol the captain of his host, and they returned into the land of the Philistines.

33 And Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beer-sheba, and there he called on the name of Jehovah, the Eternal God.

34 And Abraham sojourned in the land of the Philistines many days.
