26:1
orta autem fame super terram post eam sterilitatem quaeacciderat in diebus Abraham abiit Isaac ad Abimelech regemPalestinorum in Gerara

26:2
apparuitque ei Dominus et ait ne descendas in Aegyptum sedquiesce in terra quam dixero tibi

26:3
et peregrinare in ea eroque tecum et benedicam tibi tibienim et semini tuo dabo universas regiones has conplensiuramentum quod spopondi Abraham patri tuo

26:4
et multiplicabo semen tuum sicut stellas caeli daboqueposteris tuis universas regiones has et benedicentur in seminetuo omnes gentes terrae

26:5
eo quod oboedierit Abraham voci meae et custodieritpraecepta et mandata mea et caerimonias legesque servaverit

26:6
mansit itaque Isaac in Geraris

26:7
qui cum interrogaretur a viris loci illius super uxore suarespondit soror mea est timuerat enim confiteri quod sibi essetsociata coniugio reputans ne forte interficerent eum propterillius pulchritudinem

26:8
cumque pertransissent dies plurimi et ibi demorareturprospiciens Abimelech Palestinorum rex per fenestram vidit eumiocantem cum Rebecca uxore sua

26:9
et accersito ait perspicuum est quod uxor tua sit curmentitus es sororem tuam esse respondit timui ne morererpropter eam

26:10
dixitque Abimelech quare inposuisti nobis potuit coirequispiam de populo cum uxore tua et induxeras super nos grandepeccatum praecepitque omni populo dicens

26:11
qui tetigerit hominis huius uxorem morte morietur

26:12
seruit autem Isaac in terra illa et invenit in ipso annocentuplum benedixitque ei Dominus

26:13
et locupletatus est homo et ibat proficiens atquesuccrescens donec magnus vehementer effectus est

26:14
habuit quoque possessionem ovium et armentorum et familiaeplurimum ob haec invidentes ei Palestini

26:15
omnes puteos quos foderant servi patris illius Abrahamillo tempore obstruxerunt implentes humo

26:16
in tantum ut ipse Abimelech diceret ad Isaac recede anobis quoniam potentior nostri factus es valde

26:17
et ille discedens veniret ad torrentem Geraraehabitaretque ibi

26:18
rursum fodit alios puteos quos foderant servi patris suiAbraham et quos illo mortuo olim obstruxerant Philisthimappellavitque eos hisdem nominibus quibus ante pater vocaverat

26:19
foderunt in torrente et reppererunt aquam vivam

26:20
sed et ibi iurgium fuit pastorum Gerarae adversum pastoresIsaac dicentium nostra est aqua quam ob rem nomen putei ex eoquod acciderat vocavit Calumniam

26:21
foderunt et alium et pro illo quoque rixati suntappellavitque eum Inimicitias

26:22
profectus inde fodit alium puteum pro quo non contenderuntitaque vocavit nomen illius Latitudo dicens nunc dilatavit nosDominus et fecit crescere super terram

26:23
ascendit autem ex illo loco in Bersabee

26:24
ubi apparuit ei Dominus in ipsa nocte dicens ego sum DeusAbraham patris tui noli metuere quia tecum sum benedicam tibiet multiplicabo semen tuum propter servum meum Abraham

26:25
itaque aedificavit ibi altare et invocato nomine Dominiextendit tabernaculum praecepitque servis suis ut foderentputeum

26:26
ad quem locum cum venissent de Geraris Abimelech etOchozath amicus illius et Fichol dux militum

26:27
locutus est eis Isaac quid venistis ad me hominem quemodistis et expulistis a vobis

26:28
qui responderunt vidimus tecum esse Dominum et idcirconunc diximus sit iuramentum inter nos et ineamus foedus

26:29
ut non facias nobis quicquam mali sicut et nos nihiltuorum adtigimus nec fecimus quod te laederet sed cum pacedimisimus auctum benedictione Domini

26:30
fecit ergo eis convivium et post cibum et potum

26:31
surgentes mane iuraverunt sibi mutuo dimisitque eos Isaacpacifice in locum suum

26:32
ecce autem venerunt in ipso die servi Isaac adnuntiantesei de puteo quem foderant atque dicentes invenimus aquam

26:33
unde appellavit eum Abundantiam et nomen urbi inpositumest Bersabee usque in praesentem diem

26:34
Esau vero quadragenarius duxit uxores Iudith filiam BeeriHetthei et Basemath filiam Helon eiusdem loci

026:001
And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar.

026:002
And the LORD appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of:

026:003
Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;

026:004
And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;

026:005
Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.

026:006
And Isaac dwelt in Gerar:

026:007
And the men of the place asked him of his wife; and he said, She is my sister: for he feared to say, She is my wife; lest, said he, the men of the place should kill me for Rebekah; because she was fair to look upon.

026:008
And it came to pass, when he had been there a long time, that Abimelech king of the Philistines looked out at a window, and saw, and, behold, Isaac was sporting with Rebekah his wife.

026:009
And Abimelech called Isaac, and said, Behold, of a surety she is thy wife; and how saidst thou, She is my sister? And Isaac said unto him, Because I said, Lest I die for her.

026:010
And Abimelech said, What is this thou hast done unto us? one of the people might lightly have lien with thy wife, and thou shouldest have brought guiltiness upon us.

026:011
And Abimelech charged all his people, saying, He that toucheth this man or his wife shall surely be put to death.

026:012
Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the LORD blessed him.

026:013
And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great:

026:014
For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.

026:015
For all the wells which his father's servants had digged in the days of Abraham his father, the Philistines had stopped them, and filled them with earth.

026:016
And Abimelech said unto Isaac, Go from us; for thou art much mightier than we.

026:017
And Isaac departed thence, and pitched his tent in the valley of Gerar, and dwelt there.

026:018
And Isaac digged again the wells of water, which they had digged in the days of Abraham his father; for the Philistines had stopped them after the death of Abraham: and he called their names after the names by which his father had called them.

026:019
And Isaac's servants digged in the valley, and found there a well of springing water.

026:020
And the herdmen of Gerar did strive with Isaac's herdmen, saying, The water is ours: and he called the name of the well Esek; because they strove with him.

026:021
And they digged another well, and strove for that also: and he called the name of it Sitnah.

026:022
And he removed from thence, and digged another well; and for that they strove not: and he called the name of it Rehoboth; and he said, For now the LORD hath made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.

026:023
And he went up from thence to Beersheba.

026:024
And the LORD appeared unto him the same night, and said, I am the God of Abraham thy father: fear not, for I am with thee, and will bless thee, and multiply thy seed for my servant Abraham's sake.

026:025
And he builded an altar there, and called upon the name of the LORD, and pitched his tent there: and there Isaac's servants digged a well.

026:026
Then Abimelech went to him from Gerar, and Ahuzzath one of his friends, and Phichol the chief captain of his army.

026:027
And Isaac said unto them, Wherefore come ye to me, seeing ye hate me, and have sent me away from you?

026:028
And they said, We saw certainly that the LORD was with thee: and we said, Let there be now an oath betwixt us, even betwixt us and thee, and let us make a covenant with thee;

026:029
That thou wilt do us no hurt, as we have not touched thee, and as we have done unto thee nothing but good, and have sent thee away in peace: thou art now the blessed of the LORD.

026:030
And he made them a feast, and they did eat and drink.

026:031
And they rose up betimes in the morning, and sware one to another: and Isaac sent them away, and they departed from him in peace.

026:032
And it came to pass the same day, that Isaac's servants came, and told him concerning the well which they had digged, and said unto him, We have found water.

026:033
And he called it Shebah: therefore the name of the city is Beersheba unto this day.

026:034
And Esau was forty years old when he took to wife Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Bashemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite:

026:035
Which were a grief of mind unto Isaac and to Rebekah.
