Conflict Over Water Rights
Today's Passage: Genesis 26:11-25
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Invite God to join you in your reading and ask Him for wisdom.
If there is anything in your spirit hindering you, confess it now.
It is okay, He knows it anyway. Bring it to Him and ask Him for help, remember you are already forgiven, as Him to help you as you embrace that truth and live it out.
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you, Omnipotent God for insight.

11. Then Abimelech issued a public proclamation: "Any who touches this man or his wife will be put to death!"
12. When Isaac planted his crops that year, he harvested a hundred times more grain than he planted, for the LORD blessed him.
13. He became a very rich man, and his wealth continued to grow.
14. He acquired so many flocks of sheep and goats, herds of cattle, and servants that the Philistines became jealous of him.
15. So the Philistines filled up all of isaac's wells with dirt. These were the wells that had been dug by the servants of his father, Abraham.
16. Finally, Abimelech ordered Isaac to leave the country. 'Go somewhere else," he said, "for you have become too powerful for us."
17. So Isaac moved away to the Gerar Valley, where he set up their tents and settled down.
18. He reopened the wells his father had dug, which the Philistines had filled in after Abraham's death. Isaac also restored the names Abraham had given them.
19. Isaac's servants also dug in the Gerar Valley and discovered a well of fresh water..
20. But then the shepherds from Gerar came and claimed the spring. "This is our water," they said, and they argued over it with Isaac's herdsmen. So Isaac named the well Esek (which means "argument")
21. Isaac's men then dug another well but again there was a dispute over it. So Isaac named it Sitnah (which means hostility).
22. Abandoning that one, Isaac moved on and dug another well. This time there was no dispute over it, so Isaac named the place Rehoboth (which means "open space") for he said, "At last he LORD has created enough space for us to prosper in this land"
23. From there Isaac moved to Beersheba,
24. where the LORD appeared to him on the night of his arrival, "I am the God of your father, Abraham," he said. "Do not be afraid, for I am with you and will bless you. I will multiply your descendants, and they will become a great nation. I will do this because of my promise to Abraham, my servant."
25. Then Isaac built an altar there and worshiped the LORD He set up his camp at that place, and his servants dug another well.
