12 And these [are] the generations of Ismael the son of Abraam, whom Agar the Egyptian the hand-maid of Sarrha bore to Abraam. 13 And these [are] the names of the sons of Ismael, according to the names of their generations. The firstborn of Ismael, Nabaioth, and Kedar, and Nabdeel, and Massam, 14 and Masma, and Duma, and Masse, 15 and Choddan, and Thaeman, and Jetur, and Naphes, and Kedma. 16 These [are] the sons of Ismael, and these are their names in their tents and in their dwellings, twelve princes according to their nations. 17 And these [are] the years of the life of Ismael, a hundred and thirty-seven years; and he failed and died, and was added to his fathers. 18 And he dwelt from Evilat to Sur, which is opposite Egypt, until one comes to the Assyrians; he dwelt in the presence of all his brethren. 19 And these [are] the generations of Isaac the son of Abraam. 20 Abraam begot Isaac. And Isaac was forty years old when he took to wife Rebecca, daughter of Bathuel the Syrian, out of Syrian Mesopotamia, sister of Laban the Syrian. 21 And Isaac prayed the Lord concerning Rebecca his wife, because she was barren; and the Lord heard him, and his wife Rebecca conceived in her womb. 22 And the babes leaped within her; and she said, If it will be so with me, why is this to me? And she went to enquire of the Lord.

12 Αὗται δὲ αἱ γενέσεις ᾿Ισμαὴλ τοῦ υἱοῦ ῾Αβραάμ, ὃν ἔτεκεν ῎Αγαρ ἡ Αἰγυπτία ἡ παιδίσκη Σάρρας τῷ ῾Αβραάμ. 13 καὶ ταῦτα τὰ ὀνόματα τῶν υἱῶν ᾿Ισμαὴλ κατ᾿ ὀνόματα τῶν γενεῶν αὐτοῦ· πρωτότοκος ᾿Ισμαὴλ Ναβαιώθ, καὶ Κηδὰρ καὶ Ναβδεὴλ καὶ Μασσὰμ 14 καὶ Μασμὰ καὶ Δουμὰ καὶ Μασσῆ 15 καὶ Χοδδὰν καὶ Θαιμὰν καὶ ᾿Ιετοὺρ καὶ Ναφὲς καὶ Κεδμά. 16 οὗτοί εἰσιν οἱ υἱοὶ ᾿Ισμαὴλ καὶ ταῦτα τὰ ὀνόματα αὐτῶν ἐν ταῖς σκηναῖς αὐτῶν καὶ ἐν ταῖς ἐπαύλεσιν αὐτῶν· δώδεκα ἄρχοντες κατὰ ἔθνη αὐτῶν. 17 καὶ ταῦτα τὰ ἔτη τῆς ζωῆς ᾿Ισμαήλ· ἑκατὸν τριακονταεπτὰ ἔτη· καὶ ἐκλείπων ἀπέθανε καὶ προσετέθη πρὸς τὸ γένος αὐτοῦ. 18 κατῴκησε δὲ ἀπὸ Εὐϊλὰτ ἕως Σούρ, ἥ ἐστι κατὰ πρόσωπον Αἰγύπτου, ἕως ἐλθεῖν πρὸς ᾿Ασσυρίους· κατὰ πρόσωπον πάντων τῶν ἀδελφῶν αὐτοῦ κατῴκησε. 19 Καὶ αὗται αἱ γενέσεις ᾿Ισαὰκ τοῦ υἱοῦ ῾Αβραάμ· 20 ῾Αβραὰμ ἐγέννησε τὸν ᾿Ισαάκ. ἦν δὲ ᾿Ισαὰκ ἐτῶν τεσσαράκοντα, ὅτε ἔλαβε τὴν Ρεβέκκαν θυγατέρα Βαθουὴλ τοῦ Σύρου ἐκ τῆς Μεσοποταμίας Συρίας, ἀδελφὴν Λάβαν τοῦ Σύρου, ἑαυτῷ εἰς γυναῖκα. 21 ἐδέετο δὲ ᾿Ισαὰκ Κυρίου περὶ Ρεβέκκας τῆς γυναικὸς αὐτοῦ, ὅτι στεῖρα ἦν· ἐπήκουσε δὲ αὐτοῦ ὁ Θεός, καὶ συνέλαβεν ἐν γαστρὶ Ρεβέκκα ἡ γυνὴ αὐτοῦ. 22 ἐσκίρτων δὲ τὰ παιδία ἐν αὐτῇ· εἶπε δέ, εἰ οὕτω μοι μέλλει γίνεσθαι, ἵνα τί μοι τοῦτο; ἐπορεύθη δὲ πυθέσθαι παρὰ Κυρίου.
