Yitzchak and Avi-Melekh

26:1 And there was a ra'av (famine) in the eretz, beside the first ra'av (famine) that was in the days of Avraham. And Yitzchak (יצחק) went to Avi Melek melekh the Pelishtim (Philistines) to Gerar.

26:2 And ADONAI (יהוה) appeared to him, and said, Go not down into Mitzrayim; dwell in the eretz which I shall tell you of:

26:3 Sojourn in this eretz, and I will be with you, and will bless thee; for to you, and to your seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the shevu'ah (oath) which I sware to Avraham avicha;

26:4 And I will make your seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give to your seed all these lands; and in your seed shall all the goyim (nations) of the earth be blessed;

26:5 Because that Avraham shema (obeyed) b'Koli (My Voice), and kept mishmarti (My charge), Mitzvotai (My Commandments), Chukotai (My Statutes), and Torotai (My laws; תורתי):

26:6 (ii) And Yitzchak (יצחק) dwelt in Gerar:

26:7 And 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 Rivkah (רבקה); because she [was] fair to look upon.

26:8 And it came to pass, when he had been there a long time, that Avi Melek melekh Pelishtim (Philistines) looked out at a window, and saw, and, Hinei, Yitzchak (יצחק) [was] sporting with Rivkah (רבקה) his wife.

26:9 And Avi Melek called Yitzchak (יצחק), and said, Hinei, of a surety she [is] your wife: and how saidst you, She [is] my sister? And Yitzchak (יצחק) said to him, Because I said, Lest I die for her.

26:10 And Avi Melek said, What [is] this you have done to us? one of the people might lightly have lien with your wife, and you should have brought guiltiness upon us.

26:11 And Avi Melek charged all [his] people, saying, He that toucHet this man or his wife shall surely be put to death.

26:12 Then Yitzchak (יצחק) sowed in that eretz, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and ADONAI (יהוה) blessed him.

26:13 (iii) And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great:

26:14 For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Pelishtim (Philistines) envied him.

Well (be'er) contention and strive

26:15 For all the wells which his avi's servants had digged in the days of Avraham his avi, the Pelishtim (Philistines) had stopped them, and filled them with earth.

26:16 ויאמר אבימלך אל־יצחק לך מעמנו כי־עצמת־ממנו מאד׃

Vayomer Avimelech el-Yitzchak lekh meimanu ki-atsamta-mimenu meod:

And Avimelech said to Yitzchak, Go from us; for you art much mightier than we.

26:17 And Yitzchak (יצחק) departed thence, and pitched his tent in the valley of Gerar, and dwelt there.

26:18 And Yitzchak (יצחק) digged again the wells of mayim, which they had digged in the days of Avraham his avi; for the Pelishtim (Philistines) had stopped them after the death of Avraham: and he called their names after the names by which his avi had called them.

26:19 And Yitzchak (יצחק)'s servants digged in the valley, and found there a Be'er (well) mayim  chayim (living).

26:20 And the herdmen of Gerar did strive with Yitzchak (יצחק)'s herdmen, saying, The mayim [is] ours: and he called the name of the Be'er Esek (contention); because they strove with him.

26:21 And they digged another Be'er, and strove for that also: and he called the name of it Sitnah (hostility).

26:22 And he removed from thence, and digged another Be'er; and for that they strove not: and he called the name of it Rechovot (made room); and he said, For now ADONAI (יהוה) has made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the eretz.

26:23 (iv) And he went up from thence to Be'er Sheva (seven).

26:24 And ADONAI (יהוה) appeared to him the same night, and said:

I [am] the Elohei Avraham avicha:

Fear not,

for I [am] with you, and

will bless you, and

multiply your seed for My avdi (servant) Avraham's sake.

26:25 And he builded an altar there, and called upon the Name of ADONAI (יהוה), and pitched his tent there: and there Yitzchak (יצחק)'s servants digged a Be'er.

26:26 Then Avi Melek went to him from Gerar, and Ahuzzath one of his friends, and Phichol the chief captain of his army.

26:27 And Yitzchak (יצחק) said to them, Wherefore come ye to me, seeing ye hate me, and have sent me away from you?

26:28 And they said, We saw certainly that ADONAI (יהוה) was with you: and we said, Let there be now an shevu'ah (oath) betwixt us, [even] betwixt us and you, and let us make a covenant with thee;

26:29 That you will do us no hurt, as we have not touched you, and as we have done to you nothing but good, and have sent you away in peace: you Are now the blessed of ADONAI (יהוה).

26:30 (v) And he made them a mishteh (feast), and they did eat and drink.

26:31 And they rose up betimes in the morning, and sware one to another: and Yitzchak (יצחק) sent them away, and they departed from him in shalom.

26:32 And it came to pass the same day, that Yitzchak (יצחק)'s avdei came, and told him concerning the Be'er which they had digged, and said to him, We have found mayim.

26:33 And he called it Shevah: therefore the name of the city [is] Be'er Sheva to this day.

26:34 And Esav was forty years old when he took to wife Y'hudit Bat Be'eri the Hittite, and Bashemat (perfume) Bat Elon the Hittite:

26:35 Which were a grief of mind to Yitzchak (יצחק) and to Rivkah (רבקה).
