||When He finished speaking to him, God went up, [leaving] Abraham.
Vayechal ledaber ito vaya'al Elohim me'al Avraham.
||Abraham took his son Ishmael, everyone born in his house, and every [slave] bought for money - every male in his household - and he circumcised the flesh of their foreskins. [It was] on the very day that God had spoken to him.
Vayikach Avraham et-Yishma'el beno ve'et kol-yelidey veyto ve'et kol-miknat kaspo kol-zachar be'anshey beyt Avraham vayamol et-besar orlatam be'etsem hayom hazeh ka'asher diber ito Elohim.
Abraham was 99 years old when he was circumcised on the flesh of his foreskin.
Ve'Avraham ben-tish'im vatesha shanah behimolo besar orlato.
This indicates that the prophetic vision ended (Moreh Nevukhim 1:10). See note on Genesis 11:5.
|on the very day|
Literally, 'on that very day' (cf. Rashi). Others have, 'in broad daylight' (Pirkey Rabbi Eliezer 29; see note on Genesis 7:13). Some say that this took place on Yom Kippur (ibid.). According to others, it was on Passover (cf. Rashi on Genesis 19:3).
