name of the Lord; And God talked with him, saying, my people have gone astray from my precepts, & have not kept mine ordinances, which I gave unto their fathers; And they have not observed mine anointing, & the buriel or baptism wherewith I commanded them; but have turned from the commandment, And taken unto themselves the washing of children, & the blood of sprinkling, And have said that the blood of the righteous Abel was shed for sins, & have not known wherein <​3/​> they are accountable before me. <​3/​> But as for thee, behold, I will make my Covenant with thee, & thou shalt be a father of many Nations. And this covenant I make, that thy children may be known among all Nations. Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be called Abraham; for a Father of many Nations have I made thee. & I will make thee exceedingly fruitfull, And I will make Nations of thee; And Kings shall come up of thee, & of thy <​4/​> seed. <​4/​> And I will establish a covenant of circumcision with thee, And it shall by my covenant between me & thee & thy seed after theee, in their generations; that thou mayest know forever, that children are not accountable before me, untill they are eight years old. And thou shalt observe to keep all my covenants wherein I covenanted with thy Fathers; & thou shalt keep the commandments which I have given thee with mine own mouth, And I will be a God unto thee & thy seed after thee; And I will give unto thee, & thy seed after thee, a land wherein thou art a stranger; all the land of Canaan, for an <​5/​> everlasting possession: & I will be their God. <​5/​> And God said unto Abraham, therefore thou shalt keep my covenant, thou, & thy seed after thee, in their generations. & this shall be my covenant, which ye shall keep between me & thee, And thy seed after thee; evry man child among you shall be circumcised. And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; And it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me & you. And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, evry 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, & he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: & my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting [p. 43]

And this covenant I make, that thy children may be known among all Nations. Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be called Abraham; for a Father of many Nations have I made thee. & I will make thee exceedingly fruitfull, And I will make Nations of thee; And Kings shall come up of thee, & of thy 4/ seed. 4/ And I will establish a covenant of circumcision with thee, And it shall by my covenant between me & thee & thy seed after theee, in their generations; that thou mayest know forever, that children are not accountable before me, untill they are eight years old. And thou shalt observe to keep all my covenants wherein I covenanted with thy Fathers; & thou shalt keep the commandments which I have given thee with mine own mouth, And I will be a God unto thee & thy seed after thee; And I will give unto thee, & thy seed after thee, a land wherein thou art a stranger; all the land of Canaan, for an 5/ everlasting possession: & I will be their God. 5/ And God said unto Abraham, therefore thou shalt keep my covenant, thou, & thy seed after thee, in their generations. & this shall be my covenant, which ye shall keep between me & thee, And thy seed after thee; evry man child among you shall be circumcised.

He that is born in thy house, & he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: & my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting [p. 43]
