Genesis 21:30-32 Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)

30 But he said: Thou shalt take seven ewe lambs at my hand: that they may be a testimony for me, that I dug this well.

31 Therefore that place was called Bersabee: because there both of them did swear.

32 And they made a league for the well of oath.

Genesis 21:30-32 New International Version (NIV)

30 He replied, “Accept these seven lambs from my hand as a witness that I dug this well.

31 So that place was called Beersheba,[a] because the two men swore an oath there.

32 After the treaty had been made at Beersheba, Abimelek and Phicol the commander of his forces returned to the land of the Philistines.
