Bereshis 21:29-31 Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

29 And Avimelech said unto Avraham, What mean these seven ewe lambs which thou hast set apart by themselves?

30 And he said, For these sheva ewe lambs shalt thou accept of my hand, that they may be a witness unto me, that I have dug this well.

31 Therefore he called that place Beer-Sheva; because there they swore an oath both of them.
