as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose children you now are, if you do well, and are not put in fear by any terror.
God said to Abraham, "As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but her name will be Sarah.
Then Abraham fell on his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, "Will a child be born to him who is one hundred years old? Will Sarah, who is ninety years old, give birth?"
God said, "No, but Sarah, your wife, will bear you a son. You shall call his name Isaac. I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant for his seed after him.
But my covenant I establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you at this set time next year."
Abraham hurried into the tent to Sarah, and said, "Quickly prepare three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes."
They asked him, "Where is Sarah, your wife?" He said, "See, in the tent."
He said, "I will certainly return to you when the season comes round. Behold, Sarah your wife will have a son." Sarah heard in the tent door, which was behind him.
Now Abraham and Sarah were old, well advanced in age. Sarah had passed the age of childbearing.
Sarah laughed within herself, saying, "After I have grown old will I have pleasure, my lord being old also?"
the LORD said to Abraham, "Why did Sarah laugh, saying, 'Will I really bear a child, yet I am old?'
Is anything too hard for the LORD? At the set time I will return to you, when the season comes round, and Sarah will have a son."
Then Sarah denied, saying, "I didn't laugh," for she was afraid. He said, "No, but you did laugh."
Abraham said about Sarah his wife, "She is my sister." Abimelech king of Gerar sent, and took Sarah.
Abimelech took sheep and cattle, male servants and female servants, and gave them to Abraham, and restored Sarah, his wife, to him.
To Sarah he said, "Behold, I have given your brother a thousand pieces of silver. Behold, it is for you a covering of the eyes to all that are with you. In front of all you are vindicated."
For the LORD had closed up tight all the wombs of the house of Abimelech, because of Sarah, Abraham's wife.
the LORD visited Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did to Sarah as he had spoken.
Sarah conceived, and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him.
Abraham called his son who was born to him, whom Sarah bore to him, Isaac.
Sarah said, "God has made me laugh. Everyone who hears will laugh with me."
She said, "Who would have said to Abraham, that Sarah would nurse children? For I have borne him a son in his old age."
Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, mocking.
God said to Abraham, "Don't let it be grievous in your sight because of the boy, and because of your handmaid. In all that Sarah says to you, listen to her voice. For from Isaac will your seed be called.
Sarah lived one hundred twenty-seven years. This was the length of Sarah's life.
Sarah died in Kiriath Arba (the same is Hebron), in the land of Canaan. Abraham came to mourn for Sarah, and to weep for her.
After this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah before Mamre (that is, Hebron), in the land of Canaan.
Sarah, my master's wife, bore a son to my master when she was old. He has given all that he has to him.
Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah's tent, and took Rebekah, and she became his wife. He loved her. Isaac was comforted after his mother's death.
the field which Abraham purchased of the children of Heth. Abraham was buried there with Sarah, his wife.
Now this is the history of the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's handmaid, bore to Abraham.
There they buried Abraham and Sarah, his wife. There they buried Isaac and Rebekah, his wife, and there I buried Leah:
By faith, even Sarah herself received power to conceive, and she bore a child when she was past age, since she counted him faithful who had promised.
Look to Abraham your father, and to Sarah who bore you; for when he was but one I called him, and I blessed him, and made him many.
Without being weakened in faith, he didn't consider his own body, already having been worn out, (he being about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah's womb.
For this is a word of promise, "At the appointed time I will come, and Sarah will have a son."
