View In My Bible
7 The angel of the LORD 1 found Hagar near a spring2 in the desert; it was the spring that is beside the road to Shur.3 8 And he said, "Hagar,4 servant of Sarai, where have you come from, and where are you going?"5 "I'm running away from my mistress Sarai," she answered. 9 Then the angel of the LORD told her, "Go back to your mistress and submit to her." 10 The angel added, "I will so increase your descendants that they will be too numerous to count."6 11 The angel of the LORD 7 also said to her: "You are now with child and you will have a son.8 You shall name him9 Ishmael,a10 for the LORD has heard of your misery.11 12 He will be a wild donkey12 of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone's hand against him, and he will live in hostility towardb all his brothers.13" 13 She gave this name to the LORD who spoke to her: "You are the God who sees me,14" for she said, "I have now seenc the One who sees me."15 14 That is why the well16 was called Beer Lahai Roid;17 it is still there, between Kadesh18 and Bered. 15 So Hagar19 bore Abram a son,20 and Abram gave the name Ishmael21 to the son she had borne. 16 Abram was eighty-six years old22 when Hagar bore him Ishmael.
