Isaac Settles in Gerar

1 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.

1 ἐγένετο δὲ λιμὸς ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς χωρὶς τοῦ λιμοῦ τοῦ πρότερον, ὃς ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ χρόνῳ τῷ Ἁβραάμ· ἐπορεύθη δὲ Ἰσαὰκ πρὸς Ἀβιμέλεχ βασιλέα Φυλιστιὶμ εἰς Γέραρα. 1 Ἐγένετο δὲ λιμὸς ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς χωρὶς τοῦ λιμοῦ τοῦ πρότερον, ὃς ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ καιρῷ τοῦ Ἁβραάμ· ἐπορεύθης δὲ Ἰσαὰκ πρὸς Ἀβιμέλεχ βασιλέα Φυλιστιεὶμ εἰς Γέραρα.

2 And the LORD appeared unto him, and said, Don’t go down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell you of:

וַיֵּרָ֤א אֵלָיו֙ יְהוָ֔ה וַיֹּ֖אמֶר אַל־תֵּרֵ֣ד מִצְרָ֑יְמָה שְׁכֹ֣ן בָּאָ֔רֶץ אֲשֶׁ֖ר אֹמַ֥ר אֵלֶֽיךָ׃

2 ὤφθη δὲ αὐτῷ κύριος καὶ εἶπεν μὴ καταβῇς εἰς Αἴγυπτον· κατοίκησον δὲ ἐν τῇ γῇ, ἄν σοί εἴπω. 2 ὤφθη δὲ αὐτῷ Κύριος καὶ εἶπε· μὴ καταβῇς εἰς Αἴγυπτον· κατοίκησον δὲ ἐν τῇ γῇ, ἄν σοι εἴπω.
2 And the Lord appeared to him and said, “Don’t go down to Aigypt, but dwell in the land, which I tell to you.” 2 And the Lord appeared to him and said, “Don’t go down to Aigypt, but dwell in the land, which I tell to you.”

3 Reside in this land, and I will be with you, and will bless you; for unto you, and unto your seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I swore unto Abraham your father;

גּ֚וּר בָּאָ֣רֶץ הַזֹּ֔את וְאֶֽהְיֶ֥ה עִמְּךָ֖ וַאֲבָרְכֶ֑ךָּ כִּֽי־לְךָ֣ וּֽלְזַרְעֲךָ֗ אֶתֵּן֙ אֶת־כָּל־הָֽאֲרָצֹ֣ת הָאֵ֔ל וַהֲקִֽמֹתִי֙ אֶת־הַשְּׁבֻעָ֔ה אֲשֶׁ֥ר נִשְׁבַּ֖עְתִּי לְאַבְרָהָ֥ם אָבִֽיךָ׃

3 καὶ παροίκει ἐν τῇ γῇ ταύτῃ, καὶ ἔσομαι μετὰ σου καὶ εὐλογήσω σε· σοί γὰρ καὶ τῷ σπέρματί σου δώσω πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν ταύτην καὶ στήσω τὸν ὅρκον μου, ὃν ὤμοσα Ἁβραὰμ τῷ πατρί σου. 3 καὶ παροίκει ἐν τῇ γῇ ταύτῃ, καὶ ἔσομαι μετὰ σοῦ καὶ εὐλογήσω σε· σοί γὰρ καὶ τῷ σπέρματί σου δώσω πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν ταύτην καὶ στήσω τὸν ὅρκον μου, ὃν ὠμόσαμεν τῷ Ἁβραὰμ τῷ πατρί σου.
3 And stay in this land; and I will be with you, and bless you, for I will give to you and to your offspring all this land; and I will establish my oath which I solemnly promised to your father Habraam. 3 And stay in this land; and I will be with you, and bless you, for I will give to you and to your offspring all this land; and I will establish my oath which I solemnly promised to your father Habraam.

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

וְהִרְבֵּיתִ֤י אֶֽת־זַרְעֲךָ֙ כְּכֹוכְבֵ֣י הַשָּׁמַ֔יִם וְנָתַתִּ֣י לְזַרְעֲךָ֔ אֵ֥ת כָּל־הָאֲרָצֹ֖ת הָאֵ֑ל וְהִתְבָּרֲכ֣וּ בְזַרְעֲךָ֔ כֹּ֖ל גֹּויֵ֥י הָאָֽרֶץ׃

4 καὶ πληθυνῶ τὸ σπέρμα σου ὡς τοὺς ἀστέρας τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ δώσω τῷ σπέρματί σου πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν ταύτην, καὶ ἐνευλογηθήσονται ἐν τῷ σπέρματί σου πάντα τὰ ἔθνη τῆς γῆς, 4 καὶ πληθυνῶ τὸ σπέρμα σου ὡς τοὺς ἀστέρας τοῦ οὐρανοῦ καὶ δώσω τῷ σπέρματί σου πᾶσαν τὴν γῆν ταύτην, καὶ εὐλογηθήσονται ἐν τῷ σπέρματί σου πάντα τὰ ἔθνη τῆς γῆς,

5 Because Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.

עֵ֕קֶב אֲשֶׁר־שָׁמַ֥ע אַבְרָהָ֖ם בְּקֹלִ֑י וַיִּשְׁמֹר֙ מִשְׁמַרְתִּ֔י מִצְוֹתַ֖י חֻקֹּותַ֥י וְתֹורֹתָֽי׃

5 ἀνθ’ ὧν ὑπήκουσεν Ἁβραὰμ πατήρ σου τῆς ἐμῆς φωνῆς καὶ ἐφύλαξεν τὰ προστάγματά μου καὶ τὰς ἐντολάς μου καὶ τὰ δικαιώματά μου καὶ τὰ νόμιμά μου. 5 ἀνθ’ ὧν ὑπήκουσεν Ἁβραὰμ πατήρ σου τῆς ἐμῆς φωνῆς καὶ ἐφύλαξε τὰ προστάγματά μου καὶ τὰς ἔντολάς μου καὶ τὰ δικαιώματά μου καὶ τὰ νόμιμά μου.
5 Because Habraam your father obeyed my voice, and kept my injunctions, and my commandments, and my statutes, and my laws. 5 Because Habraam your father obeyed my voice, and kept my injunctions, and my commandments, and my statutes, and my laws.

6 And Isaac dwelt in Gerar:

6 καὶ κατῴκησεν Ἰσαὰκ ἐν Γεράροις. 6 κατῴκησε δὲ Ἰσαὰκ ἐν Γεράροις.
6 And Isaak dwelt in Gerara. 6 And Isaak dwelt in Gerara.

7 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.

יִּשְׁאֲל֞וּ אַנְשֵׁ֤י הַמָּקֹום֙ לְאִשְׁתֹּ֔ו וַיֹּ֖אמֶר אֲחֹ֣תִי הִ֑וא כִּ֤י יָרֵא֙ לֵאמֹ֣ר אִשְׁתִּ֔י פֶּן־יַֽהַרְגֻ֜נִי אַנְשֵׁ֤י הַמָּקֹום֙ עַל־רִבְקָ֔ה כִּֽי־טֹובַ֥ת מַרְאֶ֖ה הִֽיא׃

7 ἐπηρώτησαν δὲ οἱ ἄνδρες τοῦ τόπου περὶ Ῥεβέκκας τῆς γυναικὸς αὐτοῦ, καὶ εἶπεν, ἀδελφή μού ἐστιν· ἐφοβήθη γὰρ εἰπεῖν ὅτι, γυνή μού ἐστιν, μήποτε ἀποκτείνωσιν αὐτὸν οἱ ἄνδρες τοῦ τόπου περὶ Ῥεβέκκας, ὅτι ὡραία τῇ ὄψει ἦν. 7 Ἐπηρώτησαν δὲ οἱ ἄνδρες τοῦ τόπου περὶ Ῥεβέκκας τῆς γυναικὸς αὐτοῦ, καὶ εἶπε· ἀδελφή μου ἐστίν· ἐφοβήθη γὰρ εἰπεῖν ὅτι γυνή μου ἐστί, μήποτε ἀποκτείνωσιν αὐτὸν οἱ ἄνδρες τοῦ τόπου περὶ Ῥεβέκκας, ὅτι ὡραία τῇ ὄψει ἦν.
7 And the men of the place asked concerning Rhebekka his wife, and he said, “She is my sister,” for he feared to say, “She is my wife,” lest the men of the place should slay him because of Rhebekka, because she appeared beautiful. 7 And the men of the place asked concerning Rhebekka his wife, and he said, “She is my sister,” for he feared to say, “She is my wife,” lest the men of the place should slay him because of Rhebekka, because she appeared beautiful.

8 And it happened, 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.

וַיְהִ֗י כִּ֣י אָֽרְכוּ־לֹ֥ו שָׁם֙ הַיָּמִ֔ים וַיַּשְׁקֵ֗ף אֲבִימֶ֙לֶךְ֙ מֶ֣לֶךְ פְּלִשְׁתִּ֔ים בְּעַ֖ד הַֽחַלֹּ֑ון וַיַּ֗רְא וְהִנֵּ֤ה יִצְחָק֙ מְצַחֵ֔ק אֵ֖ת רִבְקָ֥ה אִשְׁתֹּֽו׃

8 ἐγένετο δὲ πολυχρόνιος ἐκεῖ· παρακύψας δὲ Ἀβιμέλεχ βασιλεὺς Γεράρων διὰ τῆς θυρίδος εἶδεν τὸν Ἰσαὰκ παίζοντα μετὰ Ῥεβέκκας τῆς γυναικὸς αὐτοῦ. 8 ἐγένετο δὲ πολυχρόνιος ἐκεῖ· καὶ παρακύψας Ἀβιμέλεχ βασιλεὺς Γεράρων διὰ τῆς θυρίδος, εἶδε τὸν Ἰσαὰκ παίζοντα μετὰ Ῥεβέκκας τῆς γυναικὸς αὐτοῦ.
8 And he remained there a long time, and Abimelech the king of Gerara looked down through the window, and saw Isaak flirting with Rhebekka his wife. 8 And he remained there a long time, and Abimelech the king of Gerara looked down through the window, and saw Isaak flirting with Rhebekka his wife.

9 And Abimelech called Isaac, and said, Behold, of a surety she is your wife: and how said you, She is my sister? And Isaac said unto him, Because I said, Lest I die for her.

וַיִּקְרָ֨א אֲבִימֶ֜לֶךְ לְיִצְחָ֗ק וַיֹּ֙אמֶר֙ אַ֣ךְ הִנֵּ֤ה אִשְׁתְּךָ֙ הִ֔וא וְאֵ֥יךְ אָמַ֖רְתָּ אֲחֹ֣תִי הִ֑וא וַיֹּ֤אמֶר אֵלָיו֙ יִצְחָ֔ק כִּ֣י אָמַ֔רְתִּי פֶּן־אָמ֖וּת עָלֶֽיהָ׃

9 ἐκάλεσεν δὲ Ἀβιμέλεχ τὸν Ἰσαὰκ καὶ εἶπεν αὐτῷ, ἄρα γε γυνή σου ἐστιν· τί ὅτι εἶπας, ἀδελφή μού ἐστιν;
εἶπεν δὲ αὐτῷ Ἰσαάκ, εἶπα γάρ μήποτε ἀποθάνω δι’ αὐτήν.
9 ἐκάλεσε δὲ Ἀβιμέλεχ τὸν Ἰσαὰκ καὶ εἶπε αὐτῷ· ἆρά γε γυνή σου ἐστί;
τί ὅτι εἶπας, ἀδελφή μου ἐστίν;
εἶπε δὲ αὐτῷ Ἰσαάκ· εἶπα γάρ, μήποτε ἀποθάνω δι’ αὐτήν.
9 And Abimelech called Isaak, and said to him, “Is she then your wife? why did you say, She is my sister?” And Isaak said to him, “For I said, Lest I should die because of her.” 9 And Abimelech called Isaak, and said to him, “Is she then your wife? why did you say, She is my sister?” And Isaak said to him, “For I said, Lest I should die because of her.”

10 And Abimelech said, What is this you have done unto us? one of the people might lightly have laid with your wife, and you should have brought guiltiness upon us.

וַיֹּ֣אמֶר אֲבִימֶ֔לֶךְ מַה־זֹּ֖את עָשִׂ֣יתָ לָּ֑נוּ כִּ֠מְעַט שָׁכַ֞ב אַחַ֤ד הָעָם֙ אֶת־אִשְׁתֶּ֔ךָ וְהֵבֵאתָ֥ עָלֵ֖ינוּ אָשָֽׁם׃

10 εἶπεν δὲ αὐτῷ Ἀβιμέλεχ, τί τοῦτο ἐποίησας ἡμῖν;
μικροῦ ἐκοιμήθη τις τοῦ γένους μου μετὰ τῆς γυναικός σου, καὶ ἐπήγαγες ἐφ’ ἡμᾶς ἄγνοιαν.
10 εἶπε δὲ αὐτῷ Ἀβιμέλεχ· τί τοῦτο ἐποίησας ἡμῖν;
μικροῦ ἐκοιμήθη τις ἐκ τοῦ γένους μου μετὰ τῆς γυναικός σου, καὶ ἐπήγαγες ἄν ἐφ’ ἡμᾶς ἄγνοιαν.
10 And Abimelech said to him, “Why have you done this to us? A little while one of my family was going to bed with your wife, and you would bring ignorance upon us.” 10 And Abimelech said to him, “Why have you done this to us? A little while one of my family was going to bed with your wife, and you would bring ignorance upon us.”

11 And Abimelech charged all his people, saying, He who touches this man or his wife shall surely be put to death.

וַיְצַ֣ו אֲבִימֶ֔לֶךְ אֶת־כָּל־הָעָ֖ם לֵאמֹ֑ר הַנֹּגֵ֜עַ בָּאִ֥ישׁ הַזֶּ֛ה וּבְאִשְׁתֹּ֖ו מֹ֥ות יוּמָֽת׃

11 συνέταξεν δὲ Ἀβιμέλεχ παντὶ τῷ λαῷ αὐτοῦ λέγων, πᾶς ἁπτόμενος τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τούτου τῆς γυναικὸς αὐτοῦ θανάτου ἔνοχος ἔσται. 11 συνέταξε δὲ Ἀβιμέλεχ παντὶ τῷ λαῷ αὐτοῦ, λέγων· πᾶς ἁψάμενος τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τούτου τῆς γυναικὸς αὐτοῦ, θανάτῳ ἔνοχος ἔσται.
11 And Abimelech ordered all his people, saying, “Anyone who touches this man and his wife shall be subject to death.” 11 And Abimelech ordered all his people, saying, “Anyone who touches this man and his wife shall be subject to death.”

12 Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year 100-fold: and the LORD blessed him.

וַיִּזְרַ֤ע יִצְחָק֙ בָּאָ֣רֶץ הַהִ֔וא וַיִּמְצָ֛א בַּשָּׁנָ֥ה הַהִ֖וא מֵאָ֣ה שְׁעָרִ֑ים וַֽיְבָרֲכֵ֖הוּ יְהוָֽה׃

12 ἔσπειρεν δὲ Ἰσαὰκ ἐν τῇ γῇ ἐκείνῃ καὶ εὗρεν ἐν τῷ ἐνιαυτῷ ἐκείνῳ ἑκατοστεύουσαν κριθήν· εὐλόγησεν δὲ αὐτὸν κύριος. 12 ἔσπειρε δὲ Ἰσαὰκ ἐν τῇ γῇ ἐκείνῃ καὶ εὗρεν ἐν τῷ ἐνιαυτῷ ἐκείνῳ ἑκατοστεύουσαν κριθήν· εὐλόγησε δὲ αὐτὸν Κύριος.

13 And the man prospered greatly, and went forward, and grew until he became very great:

וַיִּגְדַּ֖ל הָאִ֑ישׁ וַיֵּ֤לֶךְ הָלֹוךְ֙ וְגָדֵ֔ל עַ֥ד כִּֽי־גָדַ֖ל מְאֹֽד׃

13 καὶ ὑψώθη ἄνθρωπος καὶ προβαίνων μείζων ἐγίνετο, ἕως οὗ μέγας ἐγένετο σφόδρα· 13 καὶ ὑψώθη ἄνθρωπος.

13 And the man was exalted, and kept getting greater until he became very great. 13 And the man was exalted, and kept getting greater until he became very great.

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

וַֽיְהִי־לֹ֤ו מִקְנֵה־צֹאן֙ וּמִקְנֵ֣ה בָקָ֔ר וַעֲבֻדָּ֖ה רַבָּ֑ה וַיְקַנְא֥וּ אֹתֹ֖ו פְּלִשְׁתִּֽים׃

14 ἐγένετο δὲ αὐτῷ κτήνη προβάτων καὶ κτήνη βοῶν καὶ γεώργια πολλά.
ἐζήλωσαν δὲ αὐτὸν οἱ Φυλιστιίμ,
14 ἐγένετο δὲ αὐτῷ κτήνη προβάτων καὶ κτήνη βοῶν καὶ γεώργια πολλά.
ἐζήλωσαν δὲ αὐτὸν οἱ Φυλιστιείμ,
14 And he acquired cattle of sheep, and cattle of oxen, and much tilled lands, and the Phylistines envied him. 14 And he acquired cattle of sheep, and cattle of oxen, and much tilled lands, and the Phylistines envied him.

15 For all the wells which his father’s servants had dug in the days of Abraham his father, the Philistines had stopped them, and filled them with earth.

וְכָל־הַבְּאֵרֹ֗ת אֲשֶׁ֤ר חָֽפְרוּ֙ עַבְדֵ֣י אָבִ֔יו בִּימֵ֖י אַבְרָהָ֣ם אָבִ֑יו סִתְּמ֣וּם פְּלִשְׁתִּ֔ים וַיְמַלְא֖וּם עָפָֽר׃

15 καὶ πάντα τὰ φρέατα, ὤρυξαν οἱ παῖδες τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ χρόνῳ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ, ἐνέφραξαν αὐτὰ οἱ Φυλιστιὶμ καὶ ἔπλησαν αὐτὰ γῆς. 15 καὶ πάντα τὰ φρέατα, ὤρυξαν οἱ παῖδες τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ χρόνῳ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ, ἐνέφραξαν αὐτὰ οἱ Φυλιστιεὶμ καὶ ἔπλησαν αὐτὰ γῆς.
15 And the Phylistines blocked up all the wells which the servants of his father had dug in the time of his father, and filled them with dirt. 15 And the Phylistines blocked up all the wells which the servants of his father had dug in the time of his father, and filled them with dirt.

16 And Abimelech said unto Isaac, Go from us; for you are much mightier than we.

וַיֹּ֥אמֶר אֲבִימֶ֖לֶךְ אֶל־יִצְחָ֑ק לֵ֚ךְ מֵֽעִמָּ֔נוּ כִּֽי־עָצַֽמְתָּ־מִמֶּ֖נּוּ מְאֹֽד׃ ַ

16 εἶπεν δὲ Ἀβιμέλεχ πρὸς Ἰσαάκ, ἄπελθε ἀφ’ ἡμῶν, ὅτι δυνατώτερος ἡμῶν ἐγένου σφόδρα. 16 εἶπε δὲ Ἀβιμέλεχ πρὸς Ἰσαάκ· ἄπελθε ἀφ’ ἡμῶν, ὅτι δυνατώτερος ἡμῶν ἐγένου σφόδρα.
16 And Abimelech said to Isaak, “Depart from us, because you are become much stronger than we.” 16 And Abimelech said to Isaak, “Depart from us, because you are become much stronger than we.”

17 And Isaac departed from there, and pitched his tent in the valley of Gerar, and dwelt there.

יֵּ֥לֶךְ מִשָּׁ֖ם יִצְחָ֑ק וַיִּ֥חַן בְּנַֽחַל־גְּרָ֖ר וַיֵּ֥שֶׁב שָֽׁם׃

Quarrel over the Wells

18 And Isaac dug again the wells of water, which they had dug 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.

וַיָּ֨שָׁב יִצְחָ֜ק וַיַּחְפֹּ֣ר ׀ אֶת־בְּאֵרֹ֣ת הַמַּ֗יִם אֲשֶׁ֤ר חָֽפְרוּ֙ בִּימֵי֙ אַבְרָהָ֣ם אָבִ֔יו וַיְסַתְּמ֣וּם פְּלִשְׁתִּ֔ים אַחֲרֵ֖י מֹ֣ות אַבְרָהָ֑ם וַיִּקְרָ֤א לָהֶן֙ שֵׁמֹ֔ות כַּשֵּׁמֹ֕ת אֲשֶׁר־קָרָ֥א לָהֶ֖ן אָבִֽיו׃

18 καὶ πάλιν Ἰσαὰκ ὤρυξεν τὰ φρέατα τοῦ ὕδατος, ὤρυξαν οἱ παῖδες Ἁβραὰμ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐνέφραξαν αὐτὰ οἱ Φυλιστιὶμ μετὰ τὸ ἀποθανεῖν Ἁβραὰμ τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐπωνόμασεν αὐτοῖς ὀνόματα κατὰ τὰ ὀνόματα, ἐπωνόμασεν Ἁβραὰμ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ. 18 καὶ πάλιν Ἰσαὰκ ὤρυξε τὰ φρέατα τοῦ ὕδατος, ὤρυξαν οἱ παῖδες Ἁβραὰμ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐνέφραξαν αὐτὰ οἱ Φυλιστιεὶμ μετὰ τὸ ἀποθανεῖν Ἁβραὰμ τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐπωνόμασεν αὐτοῖς ὀνόματα κατὰ τὰ ὀνόματα, ὠνόμασεν πατὴρ αὐτοῦ.

21 And they dug another well, and quarreled for that also: and he called the name of it Sitnah.
