Now, God ate meat, and yet he lives forever. Prince Emmanuel Charles Edward visited Abraham :
[ 1 ] And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day;
[ 2 ] And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground,
[ 3 ] And said, My Lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant:
[ 4 ] Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree:
[ 5 ] And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort ye your hearts; after that ye shall pass on: for therefore are ye come to your servant. And they said, So do, as thou hast said.
[ 6 ] And Abraham hastened into the tent unto Sarah, and said, Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes upon the hearth.
[ 7 ] And Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetcht a calf tender and good, and gave it unto a young man; and he hasted to dress it.
[ 8 ] And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat.
