Genesis 26:13
Isaac's Prosperity

12Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundred times: and the LORD blessed him. 13And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great: 14For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him. 15For all the wells which his father's servants had dig in the days of Abraham his father, the Philistines had stopped them, and filled them with earth. 16And Abimelech said to Isaac, Go from us; for you are much mightier than we. 17And Isaac departed there, and pitched his tent in the valley of Gerar, and dwelled there. 18And Isaac dig again the wells of water, which they had dig in the days of Abraham his father; for the Philistines had stopped them after the death of Abraham: and he called their names after the names by which his father had called them. 19And Isaac's servants dig in the valley, and found there a well of springing water. 20And the herdsmen of Gerar did strive with Isaac's herdsmen, saying, The water is ours: and he called the name of the well Esek; because they strove with him. 21And they dig another well, and strove for that also: and he called the name of it Sitnah. 22And he removed from there, and dig another well; and for that they strove not: and he called the name of it Rehoboth; and he said, For now the LORD has made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land. 23And he went up from there to Beersheba. 24And the LORD appeared to him the same night, and said, I am the God of Abraham your father: fear not, for I am with you, and will bless you, and multiply your seed for my servant Abraham's sake. 25And he built an altar there, and called on the name of the LORD, and pitched his tent there: and there Isaac's servants dig a well.
