Genesis 21:30-32 Good News Translation (GNT)

30 Abraham answered, “Accept these seven lambs. By doing this, you admit that I am the one who dug this well.” 31 And so the place was called Beersheba,[a] because it was there that the two of them made a vow.

32 After they had made this agreement at Beersheba, Abimelech and Phicol went back to Philistia.
