||Abraham fell on his face and he laughed. He said to himself, 'Can a hundred-year-old man have children? Can Sarah, who is ninety, give birth?'
Vayipol Avraham al-panav vayitschak vayomer belibo haleven me'ah-shanah yivaled ve'im-Sarah havat-tish'im shanah teled.
||To God, Abraham said, 'May it be granted that Ishmael live before you!'
Vayomer Avraham el-ha'Elohim lu Yishma'el yichyeh lefanecha.
Yitzchak in Hebrew, equivalent to Isaac (see note on Genesis 17:19). Some interpret the word tzachak here literally as 'laughed' (Abarbanel; Septuagint), while others interpret it as 'rejoiced' (Targum; Saadia; Rashi).
