2 SarahA conceivedB and boreC AbrahamD
a sonE in his old age,F at the timeG of which GodH had spokenI to him.
8 The childJ grew,K and was weaned;L
and Abraham madeM a greatN feastO on the dayP that IsaacQ was weaned.
9 But Sarah sawR the son of HagarS the Egyptian,T whom she had borne to Abraham, playingU with her son Isaac.
10 So she said to Abraham, “Cast outV this slave womanW with her son; for the son of this slave woman shall not inheritX along with my son Isaac.”
11 The matterY was veryZ distressingAA toBB Abraham on account of his son.
12 But God said to Abraham, “Do not be distressedCC because of the boyDD and because of your slave woman;EE whatever Sarah says to you, do as she tellsFF you,
for it is through Isaac that offspringGG shall be namedHH for you. 13 As for the son of the slave woman, I will makeII a nationJJ of him also, because he is your offspring.”
14 So Abraham rose earlyKK in the morning,LL and tookMM breadNN
and a skinOO of water,PP and gaveQQ it to Hagar, puttingRR it on her shoulder,SS along with the child, and sent her away.TT
And she departed,UU and wanderedVV about in the wildernessWW of Beer-sheba.XX
15 When the water in the skin was gone,YY she castZZ the child under oneAAA of the bushes.BBB
16 Then she wentCCC and sat downDDD oppositeEEE him a good way off, about the distanceFFF of a bowshot;GGG
for she said, “Do not let me lookHHH on the deathIII of the child.” And as she sat opposite him, she liftedJJJ up her voiceKKK and wept.LLL
17 And God heardMMM the voice of the boy; and the angelNNN of God calledOOO to Hagar from heaven,PPP and said to her, “What troubles you, Hagar? Do not be afraid;QQQ for God has heard the voice of the boy where he is.
18 Come,RRR lift up the boy and hold him fastSSS with your hand,TTT for I will make a great nation of him.”
19 Then God openedUUU her eyesVVV and she saw a wellWWW of water. She went, and filledXXX the skin with water, and gave the boy a drink.YYY
20 God wasZZZ with the boy, and he grew up; he livedAAAA in the wilderness, and becameBBBB an expertCCCC with the bow.DDDD
21 He lived in the wilderness of Paran;EEEE and his motherFFFF gotGGGG a wife for him from the landHHHH of Egypt.IIII
