Sarai and Hagar1 Now a Sarai, Abram’s wife had borne him no children, and she had b an Egyptian maid whose name was Hagar. 2 So Sarai said to Abram, “Now behold, the Lord has prevented me from bearing children. c Please go in to my maid; perhaps I will ▼
▼ Lit be built from herobtain children through her.” And Abram listened to the voice of Sarai. 3 After Abram had ▼
▼ Lit dweltlived f ten years in the land of Canaan, Abram’s wife Sarai took Hagar the Egyptian, her maid, and gave her to her husband Abram as his wife. 4 He went in to Hagar, and she conceived; and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her sight. 5 And Sarai said to Abram g “May the wrong done me be upon you. I gave my maid into your ▼
▼ Lit bosomarms, but when she saw that she had conceived, I was despised in her ▼
▼ Lit eyessight. j May the Lord judge between ▼
▼ Lit me and youyou and me.” 6 But Abram said to Sarai, “Behold, your maid is in your ▼
▼ Lit handpower; do to her what is good in your ▼
▼ Lit eyessight.” So Sarai treated her harshly, and n she fled from her presence. 7 Now o the angel of the Lord found her by a spring of water in the wilderness, by the spring on the way to p Shur. 8 He said, “Hagar, Sarai’s maid q where have you come from and where are you going?” And she said, “I am fleeing from the presence of my mistress Sarai.” 9 Then the angel of the Lord said to her, “Return to your mistress, and submit yourself ▼
▼ Lit under her handsto her authority.” 10 Moreover, the s angel of the Lord said to her, t “I will greatly multiply your ▼
▼ Lit seeddescendants so that ▼
▼ Or it shall not be counted for multitudethey will be too many to count.” 11 The angel of the Lord said to her further, “Behold, you are with child,
And you will bear a son;
And you shall call his name ▼
▼ I.e. God hearsIshmael,
Because x the Lord ▼
▼ Lit has heardhas given heed to your affliction.
12 “He will be a z wild donkey of a man,
His hand will be against everyone,
And everyone’s hand will be against him;
And he will ▼
▼ Lit dwelllive ▼
▼ Lit before the face of; or in defiance of, ac to the east of all his brothers.”
13 Then she called the name of the Lord who spoke to her, ▼
▼ Or You, God, see me“You are ▼
▼ Heb Elroia God who sees”; for she said af “Have I even ▼
▼ Lit seen here after the one who saw meremained alive here after seeing Him?” 14 Therefore the well was called ▼
▼ I.e. the well of the living one who sees meBeer-lahai-roi; behold, it is between ai Kadesh and Bered. 15 So Hagar bore Abram a son; and Abram called the name of his son, whom Hagar bore, Ishmael. 16 Abram was aj eighty-six years old when Hagar bore Ishmael to ▼
▼ Lit Abramhim.
