Isaac And Abimelek
P T 2
6So Isaac stayed in Gerar.
12Isaac planted crops in that land and the same year reaped a
hundredfold, because the Lord blessed him.
13The man became rich, and his wealth continued to grow
until he became very wealthy.
14He had so many flocks and herds and servants that the Philistines envied him.
15So all the wells that his father’s servants had dug in the time
of his father Abraham, the Philistines stopped up, filling them with earth.
16Then Abimelek said to Isaac, “Move away from us; you have become too powerful for us.”
17So Isaac moved away from there and encamped in the
Valley of Gerar, where he settled.
18Isaac reopened the wells that had been dug in the time of his
father Abraham, which the Philistines had stopped up after Abraham died, and he gave them the same names his father had given them.
19Isaac’s servants dug in the valley and discovered a well of fresh water there.
20But the herders of Gerar quarreled with those of Isaac and
said, “The water is ours!” So he named the well Esek, because
they disputed with him.
21Then they dug another well, but they quarreled over that one
also; so he named it Sitnah.
22He moved on from there and dug another well, and no one
quarreled over it. He named it Rehoboth, saying, “Now the Lord has given us room and we will flourish in the land.”
