Bible: Gen 17:7-14

17:7 I will confirm 1  my covenant as a perpetual 2  covenant between me and you. It will extend to your descendants after you throughout their generations. I will be your God and the God of your descendants after you. 3  17:8 I will give the whole land of Canaan – the land where you are now residing 4 to you and your descendants after you as a permanent 5  possession. I will be their God.”

17:9 Then God said to Abraham, “As for you, you must keep 6  the covenantal requirement 7  I am imposing on you and your descendants after you throughout their generations. 17:10 This is my requirement that you and your descendants after you must keep: 8  Every male among you must be circumcised. 9  17:11 You must circumcise the flesh of your foreskins. This will be a reminder 10  of the covenant between me and you. 17:12 Throughout your generations every male among you who is eight days old 11  must be circumcised, whether born in your house or bought with money from any foreigner who is not one of your descendants. 17:13 They must indeed be circumcised, 12  whether born in your house or bought with money. The sign of my covenant 13  will be visible in your flesh as a permanent 14  reminder. 17:14 Any uncircumcised male 15  who has not been circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin will be cut off 16  from his people – he has failed to carry out my requirement.” 17
