The Holy Bible - The First Book of Moses: Called Genesis, Chapter 26 (Latin)
1And 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.
2And the LORD appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of:
3Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;
4And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;
5Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.
6And Isaac dwelt in Gerar:
7And 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.
8And it came to pass, 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.
9And Abimelech called Isaac, and said, Behold, of a surety she is thy wife; and how saidst thou, She is my sister? And Isaac said unto him, Because I said, Lest I die for her.
10And Abimelech said, What is this thou hast done unto us? one of the people might lightly have lien with thy wife, and thou shouldest have brought guiltiness upon us.
11And Abimelech charged all his people, saying, He that toucheth this man or his wife shall surely be put to death.
12Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the LORD blessed him.
13And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great:
14For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.
15For all the wells which his father's servants had digged in the days of Abraham his father, the Philistines had stopped them, and filled them with earth.
16And Abimelech said unto Isaac, Go from us; for thou art much mightier than we.
17And Isaac departed thence, and pitched his tent in the valley of Gerar, and dwelt there.
18And Isaac digged again the wells of water, which they had digged 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.
19And Isaac's servants digged in the valley, and found there a well of springing water.
20And the herdmen of Gerar did strive with Isaac's herdmen, saying, The water is ours: and he called the name of the well Esek; because they strove with him.
21And they digged another well, and strove for that also: and he called the name of it Sitnah.
22And he removed from thence, and digged another well; and for that they strove not: and he called the name of it Rehoboth; and he said, For now the LORD hath made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.
23And he went up from thence to Beersheba.
24And the LORD appeared unto him the same night, and said, I am the God of Abraham thy father: fear not, for I am with thee, and will bless thee, and multiply thy seed for my servant Abraham's sake.
25And he builded an altar there, and called upon the name of the LORD, and pitched his tent there: and there Isaac's servants digged a well.
26Then Abimelech went to him from Gerar, and Ahuzzath one of his friends, and Phichol the chief captain of his army.
27And Isaac said unto them, Wherefore come ye to me, seeing ye hate me, and have sent me away from you?
28And they said, We saw certainly that the LORD was with thee: and we said, Let there be now an oath betwixt us, even betwixt us and thee, and let us make a covenant with thee;
29That thou wilt do us no hurt, as we have not touched thee, and as we have done unto thee nothing but good, and have sent thee away in peace: thou art now the blessed of the LORD.
30And he made them a feast, and they did eat and drink.
31And they rose up betimes in the morning, and sware one to another: and Isaac sent them away, and they departed from him in peace.
32And it came to pass the same day, that Isaac's servants came, and told him concerning the well which they had digged, and said unto him, We have found water.
33And he called it Shebah: therefore the name of the city is Beersheba unto this day.
34And Esau was forty years old when he took to wife Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite, and Bashemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite:
35Which were a grief of mind unto Isaac and to Rebekah.
1orta autem fame super terram post eam sterilitatem quae acciderat in diebus Abraham abiit Isaac ad Abimelech regem Palestinorum in Gerara
2apparuitque ei Dominus et ait ne descendas in Aegyptum sed quiesce in terra quam dixero tibi
3et peregrinare in ea eroque tecum et benedicam tibi tibi enim et semini tuo dabo universas regiones has conplens iuramentum quod spopondi Abraham patri tuo
4et multiplicabo semen tuum sicut stellas caeli daboque posteris tuis universas regiones has et benedicentur in semine tuo omnes gentes terrae
5eo quod oboedierit Abraham voci meae et custodierit praecepta et mandata mea et caerimonias legesque servaverit
6mansit itaque Isaac in Geraris
7qui cum interrogaretur a viris loci illius super uxore sua respondit soror mea est timuerat enim confiteri quod sibi esset sociata coniugio reputans ne forte interficerent eum propter illius pulchritudinem
8cumque pertransissent dies plurimi et ibi demoraretur prospiciens Abimelech Palestinorum rex per fenestram vidit eum iocantem cum Rebecca uxore sua
9et accersito ait perspicuum est quod uxor tua sit cur mentitus es sororem tuam esse respondit timui ne morerer propter eam
10dixitque Abimelech quare inposuisti nobis potuit coire quispiam de populo cum uxore tua et induxeras super nos grande peccatum praecepitque omni populo dicens
11qui tetigerit hominis huius uxorem morte morietur
12seruit autem Isaac in terra illa et invenit in ipso anno centuplum benedixitque ei Dominus
13et locupletatus est homo et ibat proficiens atque succrescens donec magnus vehementer effectus est
14habuit quoque possessionem ovium et armentorum et familiae plurimum ob haec invidentes ei Palestini
15omnes puteos quos foderant servi patris illius Abraham illo tempore obstruxerunt implentes humo
16in tantum ut ipse Abimelech diceret ad Isaac recede a nobis quoniam potentior nostri factus es valde
17et ille discedens veniret ad torrentem Gerarae habitaretque ibi
18rursum fodit alios puteos quos foderant servi patris sui Abraham et quos illo mortuo olim obstruxerant Philisthim appellavitque eos hisdem nominibus quibus ante pater vocaverat
19foderunt in torrente et reppererunt aquam vivam
20sed et ibi iurgium fuit pastorum Gerarae adversum pastores Isaac dicentium nostra est aqua quam ob rem nomen putei ex eo quod acciderat vocavit Calumniam
21foderunt et alium et pro illo quoque rixati sunt appellavitque eum Inimicitias
22profectus inde fodit alium puteum pro quo non contenderunt itaque vocavit nomen illius Latitudo dicens nunc dilatavit nos Dominus et fecit crescere super terram
23ascendit autem ex illo loco in Bersabee
24ubi apparuit ei Dominus in ipsa nocte dicens ego sum Deus Abraham patris tui noli metuere quia tecum sum benedicam tibi et multiplicabo semen tuum propter servum meum Abraham
25itaque aedificavit ibi altare et invocato nomine Domini extendit tabernaculum praecepitque servis suis ut foderent puteum
26ad quem locum cum venissent de Geraris Abimelech et Ochozath amicus illius et Fichol dux militum
27locutus est eis Isaac quid venistis ad me hominem quem odistis et expulistis a vobis
28qui responderunt vidimus tecum esse Dominum et idcirco nunc diximus sit iuramentum inter nos et ineamus foedus
29ut non facias nobis quicquam mali sicut et nos nihil tuorum adtigimus nec fecimus quod te laederet sed cum pace dimisimus auctum benedictione Domini
30fecit ergo eis convivium et post cibum et potum
31surgentes mane iuraverunt sibi mutuo dimisitque eos Isaac pacifice in locum suum
32ecce autem venerunt in ipso die servi Isaac adnuntiantes ei de puteo quem foderant atque dicentes invenimus aquam
33unde appellavit eum Abundantiam et nomen urbi inpositum est Bersabee usque in praesentem diem
34Esau vero quadragenarius duxit uxores Iudith filiam Beeri Hetthei et Basemath filiam Helon eiusdem loci
35quae ambae offenderant animum Isaac et Rebeccae
