How old was Sarah when God first made the promise that she would bear a son for Abraham?

2 Answers 2


It seems that she was 90 yrs old:

Genesis 17:17 (NWT)
At this Abraham fell facedown and began to laugh and to say in his heart: “Will a man 100 years old have a child born to him, and will Sarah, a woman 90 years old, give birth?”

  • When quoting other sources, begin a new paragraph (after a blank line) with a ">" character, and finish with another blank line, and don't forget to include the version of the Bible you have used.
