Genesis 21:1-7 New King James Version (NKJV)

Isaac Is Born

21 And the Lord visited Sarah as He had said, and the Lord did for Sarah as He had spoken. For Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him. And Abraham called the name of his son who was born to him—whom Sarah bore to him—Isaac.[a] Then Abraham circumcised his son Isaac when he was eight days old, as God had commanded him. Now Abraham was one hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him. And Sarah said, “God has [b]made me laugh, and all who hear will laugh with me.” She also said, “Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? For I have borne him a son in his old age.”

Genesis 21:1-7 Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

21 And Jehovah hath looked after Sarah as He hath said, and Jehovah doth to Sarah as He hath spoken;

and Sarah conceiveth, and beareth a son to Abraham, to his old age, at the appointed time that God hath spoken of with him;

and Abraham calleth the name of his son who is born to him, whom Sarah hath born to him -- Isaac;

and Abraham circumciseth Isaac his son, [being] a son of eight days, as God hath commanded him.

And Abraham [is] a son of a hundred years in Isaac his son being born to him,

and Sarah saith, `God hath made laughter for me; every one who is hearing laugheth for me.'

She saith also, `Who hath said to Abraham, Sarah hath suckled sons, that I have born a son for his old age?'

Genesis 21:1-7 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Isaac Is Born

21 Then the Lord took note of Sarah as He had said, and the Lord did for Sarah as He had [a]promised. So Sarah conceived and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the appointed time of which God had spoken to him. Abraham called the name of his son who was born to him, whom Sarah bore to him, Isaac. Then Abraham circumcised his son Isaac when he was eight days old, as God had commanded him. Now Abraham was one hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him. Sarah said, “God has made laughter for me; everyone who hears will laugh [b]with me.” And she said, “Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? Yet I have borne him a son in his old age.”
