Genesis 17:18-20 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

18 And Abraham said unto God, Oh, that Ishmael might live in thy sight.

19 Then God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed, and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an [a]everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.

20 And as concerning Ishmael, I have heard thee: lo, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him [b]exceedingly: twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make a great nation of him.


  1. Genesis 17:19 The everlasting Covenant is made with the children of the Spirit: and with the children of the flesh is made the temporal promise, as was promised to Ishmael.
  2. Genesis 17:20 Hebrew, greatly, greatly.
