Genesis 21:8-21

CEB 8 The boy grew and stopped nursing. On the day he stopped nursing, Abraham prepared a huge banquet. NRS 8 The child grew, and was weaned; and Abraham made a great feast on the day that Isaac was weaned. CEB 9 Sarah saw Hagar's son laughing, the one Hagar the Egyptian had borne to Abraham. NRS 9 But Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, playing with her son Isaac. CEB 10 So she said to Abraham, "Send this servant away with her son! This servant's son won't share the inheritance with my son Isaac." NRS 10 So she said to Abraham, "Cast out this slave woman with her son; for the son of this slave woman shall not inherit along with my son Isaac." CEB 11 This upset Abraham terribly because the boy was his son. NRS 11 The matter was very distressing to Abraham on account of his son. CEB 12 God said to Abraham, "Don't be upset about the boy and your servant. Do everything Sarah tells you to do because your descendants will be traced through Isaac. NRS 12 But God said to Abraham, "Do not be distressed because of the boy and because of your slave woman; whatever Sarah says to you, do as she tells you, for it is through Isaac that offspring shall be named for you. CEB 13 But I will make of your servant's son a great nation too, because he is also your descendant." NRS 13 As for the son of the slave woman, I will make a nation of him also, because he is your offspring." CEB 14 Abraham got up early in the morning, took some bread and a flask of water, and gave it to Hagar. He put the boy in her shoulder sling and sent her away. She left and wandered through the desert near Beer-sheba. NRS 14 So Abraham rose early in the morning, and took bread and a skin of water, and gave it to Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, along with the child, and sent her away. And she departed, and wandered about in the wilderness of Beer-sheba. CEB 15 Finally the water in the flask ran out, and she put the boy down under one of the desert shrubs. NRS 15 When the water in the skin was gone, she cast the child under one of the bushes. CEB 16 She walked away from him about as far as a bow shot and sat down, telling herself, I can't bear to see the boy die. She sat at a distance, cried out in grief, and wept. NRS 16 Then she went and sat down opposite him a good way off, about the distance of a bowshot; for she said, "Do not let me look on the death of the child." And as she sat opposite him, she lifted up her voice and wept. CEB 17 God heard the boy's cries, and God's messenger called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, "Hagar! What's wrong? Don't be afraid. God has heard the boy's cries over there. NRS 17 And God heard the voice of the boy; and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven, and said to her, "What troubles you, Hagar? Do not be afraid; for God has heard the voice of the boy where he is. CEB 18 Get up, pick up the boy, and take him by the hand because I will make of him a great nation." NRS 18 Come, lift up the boy and hold him fast with your hand, for I will make a great nation of him." CEB 19 Then God opened her eyes, and she saw a well. She went over, filled the water flask, and gave the boy a drink. NRS 19 Then God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water. She went, and filled the skin with water, and gave the boy a drink. CEB 20 God remained with the boy; he grew up, lived in the desert, and became an expert archer. NRS 20 God was with the boy, and he grew up; he lived in the wilderness, and became an expert with the bow. CEB 21 He lived in the Paran desert, and his mother found him an Egyptian wife. NRS 21 He lived in the wilderness of Paran; and his mother got a wife for him from the land of Egypt.
