THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Genesis (Author Moses)

26:15For all the wells which his father's servants had digged in the days of Abraham his father, the Philistines had stopped them, and filled them with earth.

26:16And Abimelech said unto Isaac, Go from us; for thou art much mightier than we.

26:17And Isaac departed thence, and pitched his tent in the valley of Gerar, and dwelt there.

26:18And Isaac digged again the wells of water, which they had digged in the days of Abraham his father; for the Philistines had stopped them after the death of Abraham: and he called their names after the names by which his father had called them.

26:19And Isaac's servants digged in the valley, and found there a well of springing water.

26:20And the herdmen of Gerar did strive with Isaac's herdmen, saying, The water is ours: and he called the name of the well Esek; because they strove with him.

26:21And they digged another well, and strove for that also: and he called the name of it Sitnah.

26:22And he removed from thence, and digged another well; and for that they strove not: and he called the name of it Rehoboth; and he said, For now the LORD hath made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.
