Sarai deals hardly with Hagar
16:1 Now Sarai Abram's wife bear him no children and she had an female
slave, an Egyptian, whose name [was] Hagar.
16:2 And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, Yehovah has
restrained me from bearing, go in unto my slave girl; perhaps I
may obtain children by her. And Abram listened to the voice of
16:3 And Sarai Abram's wife took Hagar her slave-girl the
Egyptian, after Abram had lived ten years in the land of Canaan,
and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife.
16:4 And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived and when
she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her
16:5 And Sarai said unto Abram, My injury [be] upon you I
have given my slave-girl into your bosom ; and when she saw that
she had conceived, I was despised in her eyes Yehovah judge
between me and you.
16:6 But Abram said unto Sarai, Look, your slave-girl [is]
in your hand ; do to her as you please. And when Sarai dealt
harshly with her, she fled from before her.
16:7 And the angel of Yehovah found her by a fountain of
water in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur.
An angel speaks to Hagar
16:8 And he said, Hagar, Sarai's slave-girl, from where did
you come? and where do you go ? And she said, I am fleeing from
the face of my mistress Sarai.
16:9 And the angel of Yehovah said to her, Return to your
mistress, and submit yourself under her hands.
16:10 And the angel of Yehovah said unto her, I will multiply
your seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for
16:11 And the angel of Yehovah said unto her, Behold, you
[are] with child, and shall bear a son, and shall call his name
Ishmael ; because Yehovah has heard your affliction.
16:12 And he will be a wild ass of a man ; his hand [will be]
against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall
live before of all his brothers.
16:13 And she called the name of Yehovah that spoke unto her,
You, a God of vision! For she said, Have I also here looked after
him that sees me?
16:14 Wherefore the well was called (Well of the Living One
Seeing Me) Beerlahairoi ; behold, [it is] between Kadesh and
Ishmael is born
16:15 And Hagar bare Abram a son and Abram called his son's
name, which Hagar bore, Ishmael.
16:16 And Abram [was] eighty six years old, when Hagar bare
Ishmael to Abram.
