Genesis 17:16-21New American Standard Bible (NASB)
16 I will bless her, and indeed I will give you a son by her. Then I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of peoples will [a]come from her.”17 Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed, and said in his heart, “Will a child be born to a man one hundred years old? And will Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a child?”18 And Abraham said to God, “Oh that Ishmael might live before You!”19 But God said, “No, but Sarah your wife will bear you a son, and you shall call his name [b]Isaac; and I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant for his [c]descendants after him.20 As for Ishmael, I have heard you; behold, I will bless him, and will make him fruitful and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall [d]become the father of twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation.21 But My covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you at this season next year.”
