Lech Lecha

17:10 This is My covenant between Me, and between you and your offspring that you must keep: You must circumcise every male.
Zot beriti asher tishmeru beyni uveyneychem uveyn zar'acha acharecha himol lachem kol-zachar.
17:11 You shall be circumcised through the flesh of your foreskin. This shall be the mark of the covenant between Me and you.
Unemaltem et besar orlatchem vehayah le'ot berit beyni uveyneychem.


You shall be circumcised
  (Radak; Sherashim; Chizzkuni; Septuagint). Or, 'When you are circumcised' (Saadia); or, 'You shall cut off the flesh of your foreskin' (Targum; Rashi).
