The present paper investigates the way an authoritative text (Genesis 17) was rewritten in 15. The source text is almost completely rewritten. By way of omissions, variations and additions, the author of the new text modifies the older text. He interprets the making of the covenant between God and Abraham as a renewal. Moreover, the author tries to diminish the prominent place of Ishmael at the circumcision. The addition at the end is related to the exact date of the circumcision and the curse related to it that is connected with the exclusive covenantal relationship.
