USarayi d  wasesithi kuAbrama: Khangela-ke, i Nkosi ingivalile ukuze ngingazali e ; ake ungene encekwini yami, mhlawumbe ngingakhiwa ngayo. UAbrama waselalela ilizwi likaSarayi. Ngakho uSarayi umkaAbrama wamthatha uHagari umGibhithekazi incekukazi yakhe, ekupheleni kweminyaka elitshumi uAbrama esehlale elizweni leKhanani f , wasemnika uAbrama indoda yakhe ukuthi abe ngumkakhe. Wasengena kuHagari, wasethatha isisu. Esebonile ukuthi uzithwele, inkosikazi yakhe yasideleleka emehlweni akhe g . USarayi wasesithi kuAbrama: Ububi bami buphezu kwakho. Mina nginike incekukazi yami esifubeni sakho, ithe isibonile ukuthi izithwele, ngiyadeleleka emehlweni ayo. I Nkosi kayahlulele phakathi kwami lawe h . UAbrama wasesithi kuSarayi: Khangela, incekukazi yakho isesandleni sakho i . Yenza kuyo lokho okuhle emehlweni akho. USarayi waseyiphatha kubi, yasibaleka ebusweni bakhe j .

Ingilosi ye Nkosi yasiyifica emthonjeni wamanzi enkangala k , emthonjeni endleleni eya eShuri l . Yasisithi: Hagari, ncekukazi kaSarayi, uvela ngaphi, uya ngaphi? Yasisithi: Ngibalekela ubuso bukaSarayi inkosikazi yami. Ingilosi ye Nkosi yasisithi kuyo: Buyela enkosikazini yakho, ubusuzehlisela ngaphansi kwezandla zayo. 10 Ingilosi ye Nkosi yathi kuyo futhi: Ngizakwandisa kakhulu inzalo yakho m  ukuze ingabalwa ngenxa yobunengi. 11 Ingilosi ye Nkosi yasisithi kuyo: Khangela, uzithwele, futhi uzazala indodana, njalo uzayitha ibizo layo n  uthi nguIshmayeli
 uIshmayeli: okuyikuthi,  uNkulunkulu uzakuzwa.
, ngoba i Nkosi izwile ukuhlupheka kwakho.
12 Yona-ke izakuba ngumuntu ongubabhemi ongathambanga p , isandla sayo simelane labo bonke, lesandla sabo bonke simelane layo; izahlala phambi kobuso babafowabo bonke q . 13 Waselitha ibizo le Nkosi eyakhuluma laye lokuthi: Wena Nkulunkulu wokubona. Ngoba wathi: Lapha lami ngimkhangele yini ongibonayo? 14 Ngakho umthombo wabizwa ngokuthi iBeri-Lahayi-Royi r,
 iBeri-Lahayi-Royi: okuyikuthi,  umthombo walowo ophilayo engibona.
; khangela, uphakathi kweKadeshi t  leBeredi.
15 UHagari wasemzalela uAbrama indodana; uAbrama wasesitha ibizo lendodana yakhe, uHagari ayizalayo, wathi nguIshmayeli u . 16 Njalo uAbrama wayeleminyaka engamatshumi ayisificaminwembili lesithupha mhla uHagari emzalela uAbrama uIshmayeli.
