Bible: Gen 17:9-14

17:9 Then God said to Abraham, “As for you, you must keep 1  the covenantal requirement 2  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: 3  Every male among you must be circumcised. 4  17:11 You must circumcise the flesh of your foreskins. This will be a reminder 5  of the covenant between me and you. 17:12 Throughout your generations every male among you who is eight days old 6  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, 7  whether born in your house or bought with money. The sign of my covenant 8  will be visible in your flesh as a permanent 9  reminder. 17:14 Any uncircumcised male 10  who has not been circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin will be cut off 11  from his people – he has failed to carry out my requirement.” 12
