Genesis 17:5

And your name is not continually called-out Raised-Father, and he has become your name Father-of-Tumult, for a father of a Multitude of nations have I have given you.616



Father-of-Tumult means Father of a Multitude (Strong’s #87, #85). The renaming of Raised-Father (Raised Father) to Father-of-Tumult is associated with him becoming a father of a Multitude. As seen in the previous note, -ham is derived from hamon.
