Genesis 21:29-31 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

29 Abimelech asked him, “What is the meaning of these seven female lambs you have set apart?”

30 Abraham answered, “Accept these lambs from me so that they may be proof[a] that I dug this well.” 31 This is why that place is called Beersheba,[b] because both of them swore an oath there.
