10 So she said to Abraham, “Cast outM this slave woman with her son; for the son of this slave woman shall not inheritN along with my son Isaac.” 11 The matterO was very distressingP toQ Abraham on account of his son.
16 Then she went and sat downMM opposite him a good way off, about the distance of a bowshot;NN for she said, “Do not let me look on the deathOO of the child.” And as she sat opposite him, she lifted up her voicePP and wept.QQ
17 And God heardRR the voice of the boy; and the angelSS of God calledTT to Hagar from heaven,UU and said to her, “What troubles you, Hagar? Do not be afraid;VV for God has heard the voice of the boy where he is.
18 Come,WW lift up the boy and hold him fastXX with your hand, for I will makeYY a great nation of him.” 19 Then God opened her eyes and she saw a wellZZ of water. She went, and filled the skin with water, and gave the boy a drink.
20 God was with the boy, and he grew up; he livedAAA in the wilderness, and became an expertBBB with the bow.CCC 21 He lived in the wilderness of Paran;DDD and his mother got a wife for him from the land of Egypt.
