Abraham and Sarah Laughed

Abraham Laughed

GENESIS 17:15-22

15     †      ¶  And God said unto Abraham, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be.

16     †     And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her.

17     †     Then Abraham fell upon his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, Shall a child be born unto him that is an hundred years old? and shall Sarah, that is ninety years old, bear?

18     †     And Abraham said unto God, O that Ishmael might live before thee!

19     †     And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his seed after him.

20     †     And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.

21     †     But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.

22     †     And he left off talking with him, and God went up from Abraham.

Sarah Laughed
GENESIS 18:9-16

9     †      ¶  And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent.

10     †     And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him.

11     †  Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.

12     †     Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?

13     †     And the LORD said unto Abraham, Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?

14     †     Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.

15     †     Then Sarah denied, saying, I laughed not; for she was afraid. And he said, Nay; but thou didst laugh.

16     †      ¶  And the men rose up from thence, and looked toward Sodom: and Abraham went with them to bring them on the way.

»     7     †     And she said, Who would have said unto Abraham, that Sarah should have given children suck? for I have born him a son in his old age.

»     8     †     And the child grew, and was weaned: and Abraham made a great feast the same day that Isaac was weaned.
