|16:1||And Sarai, Abram's wife, did not bear to him; and to her belonged a female slave, an Egyptian, and her name was Hagar.|
|16:2||And Sarai said to Abram, See, now, Jehovah has kept me from bearing; go in now to my slave-girl; perhaps I may be built up from her. And Abram listened to the voice of Sarai.|
|16:3||And Sarai, Abram's wife, took her slave-girl, Hagar, the Egyptian, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife, after Abram had lived ten years in the land of Canaan.|
|16:4||And he went in to Hagar and she conceived; and she saw that she had conceived, and her mistress was despised in her eyes.|
|16:5||And Sarai said to Abram, My injury be upon you; I gave my slave-girl into your bosom, and she saw that she had conceived, and I was despised in her eyes. Let Jehovah judge between me and you.|

|16:12||And he shall be a wild ass of a man, his hand against all, and the hand of everyone against him; and he shall live before all his brothers.|
|16:13||And she called the name of Jehovah, the One speaking to her, You, a God of vision! For she said, Even here I have looked after the One seeing me?|
|16:14||On account of this, the well was called, The Well of the Living One Seeing Me. Behold, it is between Kadesh and Bered.|
|16:15||And Hagar bore a son to Abram, and Abram called the name of his son whom Hagar bore, Ishmael.|
