Genesis 21:1-7

1 The Lᴏʀᴅ blessed Sarah and kept his promise. 2 She became pregnant, and according to the timeframe that the Lᴏʀᴅ had laid out in Genesis 18:14, she gave birth to Abraham’s son. Abraham became a father in his old age 3 and he named his son Isaac. 4 Eight days after Isaac was born, just as God had commanded in Genesis 17, Abraham circumcised him, giving him the mark of the covenant.

5 Abraham was 100 years old when his son Isaac was born.

6 And Sarah said, “God has given me real laughter. I’m sure that everyone who hears about all this will laugh, too. 7 Can you imagine anyone telling Abraham that Sarah would nurse a baby? Yet even in my old age, I’ve borne a son for him!”
