Abram' s Covenant with God
Genesis

When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said,  ' I am God Almighty.  Live always in my presence and be perfect , so that I may set my covenant between myself and you and multiply your descendants. ' Abram threw himself down on his face , and God spoke with him and said , ' I make this covenant , and I make it with you :you shall be the father of a host of nations . Your name shall no longer be Abram, your name shall be Abraham, for I make you father of a host of nations . I will make you exceedingly fruitful;I will make nations out of you , and kings shall spring from you I will fulfil my covenant between myself and you and your descendants after you , generation after generation, an ever lasting covenant, to be your God, yours and your descendants' after you . As an everlasting possession I will give you and your descendants after you the land in which you now are aliens , all the land of Canaan, and I will be God to your descendants. '

God said to Abraham , ' For your part, you must keep my covenant , you and your descendants after you , generation by generation. This is how you shall keep my convenant between myself and you and your descendants after you; circumcise myself and you and your descendants after you ;circumcise yourselves, every male among you . Every male among you in every generation shall be circumcised on the eighth day , both those born in your house and any foreigner, not of your blood but bought with your money , thus shall my covenant be marked in your flesh as an everlasting covenant . Every uncircumcised  male shall be cut off from the kin of his father . He broken my covenant . '
God said to Abraham , ' As for Sarai your wife ;you shall call her not Sarai, but Sarah . I will bless her and give you a son by her . I will bless her and she shall be the mother of nations ;the himself down on his face;he laughed and said to himself ' Can a son be born to a man who is a hundred years old ?                        Can Sarah bear a son when she is ninety ?                        ' He said to God , ' If only Ishmael might live under thy `special care !' But God replied, ' No. Your wife Sarah shall bear you a son , and you shall call him Isaac. With him I will fulfil my covenant , an everlasting covenant with his descendants after him . I have blessed him and will make him fruitful . I will multiply his descendants; he shall be father of twelve princes . and I will raise a great nation from him . But my covenant I will fulfil with Isaac , whom Sarah will bear to you at this season next year . ' When he had finished talking with Abraham , God ascended and left him .
Then Abraham took Ishmael his son , everyone who had been born in his household and everyone bought with money , every male in his household , and he circumcised them that very same day in the flesh of their foreskins as God had told him to do . Abraham was ninety-nine years old when he circumcised the flesh of his foreskin. Ishmael was thirteen years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin .
