katapi HOME Genesis 21:8-21 - Hagar and Ishmael are sent away.  Gn.21.8-21

21 8 The boy grew and was weaned, and on the day of his weaning Abraham gave a feast. 21 9 Sarah saw the son whom Hagar the Egyptian had borne to Abraham laughing at him, 21 10 and she said to Abraham, 'Drive out this slave-girl and her son; I will not have this slave-girl's son sharing the inheritance with my son Isaac.' 21 11 Abraham was vexed at this on his son Ishmael's account, 21 12 but God said to him, 'Do not be vexed on account of the boy and the slave-girl. Do what Sarah says, because you shall have descendants through Isaac. 21 13 I will make a great nation of the slave-girl's son too, because he is your own child.' 21 14 Abraham rose early in the morning, took some food and a waterskin full of water and gave it to Hagar; he set the child on her shoulder and sent her away, and she went and wandered in the wilderness of Beersheba.

21 15 When the water in the skin was finished, she thrust the child under a bush, 21 16 and went and sat down some way off, about two bowshots away, for she said, 'How can I watch the child die?' So she sat some way off, weeping bitterly. 21 17 God heard the child crying, and the Or an angel of God called from heaven to Hagar, 'What is the matter, Hagar? Do not be afraid: God has heard the child crying where you laid him. 21 18 Get to your feet, lift the child up and hold him in your arms, because I will make of him a great nation.' 21 19 Then God opened her eyes and she saw a well full of water; she went to it, ?lled her waterskin and gave the child a drink. 21 20 (20-21) God was with the child, and he grew up and lived in the wilderness of Paran. He became an archer, and his mother found him a wife from Egypt. 21 21
