Sarai and Hagar

1 Now 1Sarai, Abram's wife had borne him no children, and she had 2an Egyptian maid whose name was Hagar. 2 So Sarai said to Abram, "Now behold, the LORD has prevented me from bearing children. 3Please go in to my maid; perhaps I will aobtain children through her." And Abram listened to the voice of Sarai. 3 After Abram had blived 4ten 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, "5May the wrong done me be upon you. I gave my maid into your carms, but when she saw that she had conceived, I was despised in her dsight. 6May the LORD judge between eyou and me." 6 But Abram said to Sarai, "Behold, your maid is in your fpower; do to her what is good in your gsight." So Sarai treated her harshly, and 7she fled from her presence.
