Genesis 16
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And Sarai the wife of Abram did not give birth for him and he had a female Egyptian Servant and her name was Hagar. 2And Sarai said to Abram, “Behold, LORD JEHOVAH has denied me offspring. Enter into my female Servant; doubtless I shall be comforted from her.” And Abram listened to the voice of Sarai. 3And Sarai, the wife of Abram, brought Hagar the Egyptian her Handmaid after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and she gave her as a wife to Abram her husband. 4And he entered into Hagar and she conceived, and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes. 5And Sarai said to Abram, “My wrong is upon you! I have given my female Servant into your bosom, and when she saw that she conceived, I was despised in her eyes! LORD JEHOVAH will judge between me and you!” 6And Abram said to Sarai his wife, “Behold, your maid is delivered into your hands; do to her whatever is good in your eyes.” and Sarai her mistress treated her shamefully and she fled from before her.

7And the Angel of LORD JEHOVAH found her at a spring of waters in the wilderness in the road of Gadar. 8And he said to her, “Hagar, Handmaid of Sarai, from where are you coming and where are you going?” and she said, “I am running away from before Sarai, my Mistress.” 9And the Angel of LORD JEHOVAH said to her, “Return to your Mistress and be subject under her hand.” 10And he said to her, “Multiplying I shall multiply your seed and it will not be counted because of its immensity.”

11And the Angel of LORD JEHOVAH said to her, “Behold, you are pregnant and are to give birth to a son, and you shall call his name Ishmayl, because LORD JEHOVAH heard in your servitude.

12And he shall be a savage of the children of men; his hand is against everyone and the hand of everyone against him, and he shall dwell upon the borders of all his brothers.”

13And she called the name of LORD JEHOVAH who spoke with her and she said: “You are God in a vision”, because she said, “Behold, also I saw the vision after it saw me.” 14Because of this, she called this well “Beer D'Khaya Khezan"; behold, it is between Raqeem and Gadar.

15And Hagar bore a son to Abram, and Abram called the name of his son, who was born to him, whom Hagar had given birth to by him, Ishmayl; and Abram was eighty and six years old when Hagar gave birth to Ishmayl by Abram. 16And Abram was ninety and nine years old and LORD JEHOVAH was revealed unto Abram and said to him, “I AM El Shaddai God; be pleasing before me and be without defect.
