Genesis 21:9-20

CEB 9 Sarah saw Hagar's son laughing, the one Hagar the Egyptian had borne to Abraham. NIV 9 But Sarah saw that the son whom Hagar the Egyptian had borne to Abraham was mocking, 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." NIV 10 and she said to Abraham, “Get rid of that slave woman and her son, for that woman’s son will never share in the inheritance with my son Isaac.” CEB 11 This upset Abraham terribly because the boy was his son. NIV 11 The matter distressed Abraham greatly because it concerned 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. NIV 12 But God said to him, “Do not be so distressed about the boy and your slave woman. Listen to whatever Sarah tells you, because it is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned. CEB 13 But I will make of your servant's son a great nation too, because he is also your descendant." NIV 13 I will make the son of the slave into a nation 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. NIV 14 Early the next morning Abraham took some food and a skin of water and gave them to Hagar. He set them on her shoulders and then sent her off with the boy. She went on her way and wandered in the Desert of Beersheba. CEB 15 Finally the water in the flask ran out, and she put the boy down under one of the desert shrubs. NIV 15 When the water in the skin was gone, she put the boy 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. NIV 16 Then she went off and sat down about a bowshot away, for she thought, “I cannot watch the boy die.” And as she sat there, she began to sob. 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. NIV 17 God heard the boy crying, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, “What is the matter, Hagar? Do not be afraid; God has heard the boy crying as he lies there. CEB 18 Get up, pick up the boy, and take him by the hand because I will make of him a great nation." NIV 18 Lift the boy up and take him by the hand, for I will make him into a great nation.” 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. NIV 19 Then God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water. So 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. NIV 20 God was with the boy as he grew up. He lived in the desert and became an archer.
