thee exceeding fruitfull and I will make nations of thee and Kings shall come up of thee and of thy seed and I will establish a covenent of circumcision with thee and it shall be my covenent between me and thee and thy seed after thee in thy <their> genarations that thou mayest know forever that children are not accountable before me till eight years old and thou shalt observe to keep all my covenents wherein I covenented with thy fathers and thou shalt keep the commandments which I have given thee with mine own mouth and I will be a God unto thee and thy seed after thee and I will give unto thee and thy seed after thee thee land wherein thou art a stranger all the land of of Canaan for an everlasting possession and I will be their God. And God said unto Abraham therefore thou shalt keep my covenent, thou and thy seed after <thee> in their generations and this shall be my covenent which ye shall keep between me and thee and thy seed after thee, every man child among you shall be circumcised and ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin and it shall be a token of the covenent betwixt me and you and he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you every man child in your generations he that is born <in> the house or bought with money of any stranger which is not of thy seed he that is born in thy house and he that is bought with thy money must needs be circumcised, and my covenent shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenent, and the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised that soul shall be cut off from his people he hath broken my covenent. And God said unto Abraham as for Sarai thy wife thou shalt not call her <name> [p. 41]
