7 Now the mAngel of the Lord found her by a spring of water in the wilderness, nby the spring on the way to oShur. 8 And He said, “Hagar, Sarai’s maid, where have you come from, and where are you going?”
She said, “I am fleeing from the presence of my mistress Sarai.”
9 The Angel of the Lord said to her, “Return to your mistress, and psubmit yourself under her hand.” 10 Then the Angel of the Lord said to her, q“I will multiply your descendants exceedingly, so that they shall not be counted for multitude.” 11 And the Angel of the Lord said to her:
“Behold, you are with child,
rAnd you shall bear a son.
You shall call his name 4Ishmael,
Because the Lord has heard your affliction.
12 sHe shall be a wild man;
His hand shall be against every man,
And every man’s hand against him.
tAnd he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.”
