RBT Translation:
Being circumcised he is being circumcised621 a born-one of your house, and a bought-one of your silver-one; and my cut-out-one has become in the flesh of yourselves,622 a cut-out-one age-during.
LITV Translation:
Surely the child of your house and the purchase of your money must be circumcised. And My covenant shall be in your flesh for a perpetual covenant.
ESV Translation:
both he who is born in your house and he who is bought with your money, shall surely be circumcised. So shall my covenant be in your flesh an everlasting covenant.
Brenton Septuagint Translation:
He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with money shall be surely circumcised, and my covenant shall be on your flesh for an everlasting covenant.



Hebrew הִמּ֧וֹל יִמּ֛וֹל. Being circumcised he is being circumcised. Like “dying you are dying” in Genesis 2:16.
