Abundance

29 That thou do us no harm, as we on our part have touched nothing of thine, nor have done any thing to hurt thee: but with peace have sent thee away increased with the blessing of the Lord. 30 And he made them a feast, and after they had eaten and drunk:

31 Arising in the morning, they swore one to another: and Isaac sent them away peaceably to their own home. 32 And behold the same day the servants of Isaac came, telling him of a well which they had digged, and saying: We have found water. 33 Whereupon he called it Abundance: and the name of the city was called Bersabee, even to this day. 34 And Esau being forty years old, married wives, Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hethite, and Basemath the daughter of Elon of the same place. 35 And they both offended the mind of Isaac and Rebecca.

1 Now Isaac was old, and his eyes were dim, and he could not see: and he called Esau, his elder son, and said to him: My son? And he answered: Here I am. 2 And his father said to him: Thou seest that I am old, and know not the day of my death.
Genesis 26:29-35, 27:1-2
