B90 – Day 2

Genesis 17:5 … No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations.

From NetBible Gen 17:5

Abram[087] = exalted father

Abraham[085] = father of a multitude

Genesis 21:5-6Now Abraham was one hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him. Sarah said, “God has made laughter for me; everyone who hears will laugh with me.”

From NetBible Isaac[03327] means “he laughs”.

*footnote v6 : Sarah’s words play on the name “Isaac” in a final triumphant manner. God prepared “laughter” (צְחֹקysÿkhoq ) for her, and everyone who hears about this “will laugh” (יִצְחַקyitskhaq ) with her. The laughter now signals great joy and fulfillment, not unbelief (cf. Gen 18:12-15).

Genesis 24:13-14Behold, I am standing by the spring, and the daughters of the men of the city are coming out to draw water; 14 now may it be that the girl to whom I say, ‘Please let down your jar so that I may drink,’ and who answers, ‘Drink, and I will water your camels also’—may she be the one whom You have appointed for Your servant Isaac; and by this I will know that You have shown lovingkindness to my master.”

Genesis 25:11It came about after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his son Isaac; and Isaac lived by Beer-lahai-roi.

From NetBible Beer-lahai-roi[0883] means “well of the Living One seeing me”.

Genesis 26:22He moved away from there and dug another well, and they did not quarrel over it; so he named it Rehoboth, for he said, “At last the LORD has made room for us, and we will be fruitful in the land.”

From NetBible Gen 26:18-22

Isaac’s first well was named Esek[06230] = “contention”
the second well was named Sitnah[07856] = “strife”
the final well was named Rehoboth[07344] =”wide or open place”
