21:22 At that time Abimelech and Phicol the commander of his forces said to Abraham, “God is with you in everything you do.
21:23 Now swear to me here before God that you will not deal falsely with me or my children or my descendants. Show to me and the country where you are living as an alien the same kindness I have shown to you.”
21:24 Abraham said, “I swear it.”
21:25 Then Abraham complained to Abimelech about a well of water that Abimelech’s servants had seized.
21:26 But Abimelech said, “I don’t know who has done this. You did not tell me, and I heard about it only today.”
21:27 So Abraham brought sheep and cattle and gave them to Abimelech, and the two men made a treaty.
21:28 Abraham set apart seven ewe lambs from the flock,
21:29 and Abimelech asked Abraham, “What is the meaning of these seven ewe lambs you have set apart by themselves?”
21:30 He replied, “Accept these seven lambs from my hand as a witness that I dug this well.”
21:31 So that place was called Beersheba, because the two men swore an oath there.
21:32 After the treaty had been made at Beersheba, Abimelech and Phicol the commander of his forces returned to the land of the Philistines.
21:33 Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba, and there he called upon the name of the LORD, the Eternal God.
21:34 And Abraham stayed in the land of the Philistines for a long time.
16:13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”
16:14 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
16:15 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”
16:16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
16:17 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven.
16:18 And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.
16:19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
16:20 Then he warned his disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Christ.
