10 And Abimelech said to him, Why hast thou done this to us? one of my kindred within a little had lain with thy wife, and thou wouldest have brought [a sin of] ignorance upon us. 11 And Abimelech charged all his people, saying Every man that touches this man and his wife shall be liable to death. 12 And Isaac sowed in that land, and he found in that year barley and hundred-fold, and the Lord blessed him. 13 And the man was exalted, and advancing he increased, till he became very great. 14 And he had cattle of sheep, and cattle of oxen, and many tilled lands, and the Phylistines envied him. 15 And all the wells which the servants of his father had dug in the time of his father, the Phylistines stopped them, and filled them with earth. 16 And Abimelech said to Isaac, Depart from us, for thou art become much mightier than we. 17 And Isaac departed thence, and rested in the valley of Gerara, and dwelt there. 18 And Isaac dug again the wells of water, which the servants of his father Abraam had dug, and the Phylistines had stopped them, after the death of his father Abraam; and he gave them names, according to the names by which his father named them. 19 And the servants of Isaac dug in the valley of Gerara, and they found there a well of living water. 20 And the shepherds of Gerara strove with the shepherds of Isaac, saying that the water was theirs; and they called the name of the well, Injury, for they injured him. 21 And having departed thence he dug another well, and they strove also for that; and he named the name of it, Enmity.

10 εἶπε δὲ αὐτῷ ᾿Αβιμέλεχ· τί τοῦτο ἐποίησας ἡμῖν; μικροῦ ἐκοιμήθη τις ἐκ τοῦ γένους μου μετὰ τῆς γυναικός σου, καὶ ἐπήγαγες ἂν ἐφ᾿ ἡμᾶς ἄγνοιαν. 11 συνέταξε δὲ ᾿Αβιμέλεχ παντὶ τῷ λαῷ αὐτοῦ, λέγων· πᾶς ὁ ἁψάμενος τοῦ ἀνθρώπου τούτου ἢ τῆς γυναικὸς αὐτοῦ, θανάτῳ ἔνοχος ἔσται. 12 ἔσπειρε δὲ ᾿Ισαὰκ ἐν τῇ γῇ ἐκείνῃ καὶ εὗρεν ἐν τῷ ἐνιαυτῷ ἐκείνῳ ἑκατοστεύουσαν κριθήν· εὐλόγησε δὲ αὐτὸν Κύριος. 13 καὶ ὑψώθη ὁ ἄνθρωπος. καὶ προβαίνων μείζων ἐγίνετο, ἕως οὗ μέγας ἐγένετο σφόδρα· 14 ἐγένετο δὲ αὐτῷ κτήνη προβάτων καὶ κτήνη βοῶν καὶ γεώργια πολλά. ἐζήλωσαν δὲ αὐτὸν οἱ Φυλιστιείμ, 15 καὶ πάντα τὰ φρέατα, ἃ ὤρυξαν οἱ παῖδες τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ χρόνῳ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ, ἐνέφραξαν αὐτὰ οἱ Φυλιστιεὶμ καὶ ἔπλησαν αὐτὰ γῆς. 16 εἶπε δὲ ᾿Αβιμέλεχ πρὸς ᾿Ισαάκ· ἄπελθε ἀφ᾿ ἡμῶν, ὅτι δυνατώτερος ἡμῶν ἐγένου σφόδρα. 17 καὶ ἀπῆλθεν ἐκεῖθεν ᾿Ισαὰκ καὶ κατέλυσεν ἐν τῇ φάραγγι Γεράρων καὶ κατῴκησεν ἐκεῖ. 18 καὶ πάλιν ᾿Ισαὰκ ὤρυξε τὰ φρέατα τοῦ ὕδατος, ἃ ὤρυξαν οἱ παῖδες ῾Αβραὰμ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐνέφραξαν αὐτὰ οἱ Φυλιστιεὶμ μετὰ τὸ ἀποθανεῖν ῾Αβραὰμ τὸν πατέρα αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἐπωνόμασεν αὐτοῖς ὀνόματα κατὰ τὰ ὀνόματα, ἃ ὠνόμασεν ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ. 19 καὶ ὤρυξαν οἱ παῖδες ᾿Ισαὰκ ἐν τῇ φάραγγι Γεράρων καὶ εὗρον ἐκεῖ φρέαρ ὕδατος ζῶντος. 20 καὶ ἐμαχέσαντο οἱ ποιμένες Γεράρων μετὰ τῶν ποιμένων ᾿Ισαάκ, φάσκοντες αὐτῶν εἶναι τὸ ὕδωρ. καὶ ἐκάλεσαν τὸ ὄνομα τοῦ φρέατος ᾿Αδικία· ἠδίκησαν γὰρ αὐτόν. 21 ἀπάρας δὲ ᾿Ισαὰκ ἐκεῖθεν ὤρυξε φρέαρ ἕτερον, ἐκρίνοντο δὲ καὶ περὶ ἐκείνου· καὶ ἐπωνόμασε τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ ᾿Εχθρία.
