1Abram's wife Sarai had borne him no child, but she had an Egyptian slave-girl cal ed Hagar. 2So Sarai said to Abram, 'Listen, now! Since Yahweh has kept me from having children, go to myslave-girl. Perhaps I shal get children through her.' And Abram took Sarai's advice. 3Thus, after Abram had lived in the land of Canaan for ten years, Sarai took Hagar her Egyptian slave-girl and gave her to Abram as his wife. 4He went to Hagar and she conceived. And once she knew she had conceived, her mistress countedfor nothing in her eyes. 5Then Sarai said to Abram, 'This outrage done to me is your fault! It was I who put my slave-girl intoyour arms but, now she knows that she has conceived, I count for nothing in her eyes. Yahweh judge betweenme and you!' 6'Very wel ,' Abram said to Sarai, 'your slave-girl is at your disposal. Treat her as you think fit.' Saraiaccordingly treated her so badly that she ran away from her. 7The angel of Yahweh found her by a spring in the desert, the spring on the road to Shur. 8He said, 'Hagar, slave-girl of Sarai, where have you come from, and where are you going?' 'I amrunning away from my mistress Sarai,' she replied. 9The angel of Yahweh said to her, 'Go back to your mistress and submit to her.' 10The angel of Yahweh further said to her, 'I shal make your descendants too numerous to becounted.' 11Then the angel of Yahweh said to her: Now, you have conceived and will bear a son, and you shalname him Ishmael, for Yahweh has heard your cries of distress. 12A wild donkey of a man he wil be, his hand against every man, and every man's hand against him,living his life in defiance of al his kinsmen. 13Hagar gave a name to Yahweh who had spoken to her, 'You are El Roi,' by which she meant, 'Did Inot go on seeing here, after him who sees me?' 14This is why the well is cal ed the wel of Lahai Roi; it is between Kadesh and Bered. 15Hagar bore Abram a son, and Abram gave his son borne by Hagar the name Ishmael. 16Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar bore him Ishmael.
