16:7 The Lord’s angel 1 found Hagar near a spring of water in the desert – the spring that is along the road to Shur. 2 16:8 He said, “Hagar, servant of Sarai, where have you come from, and where are you going?” She replied, “I’m running away from 3 my mistress, Sarai.”
16:9 Then the Lord’s angel said to her, “Return to your mistress and submit 4 to her authority. 16:10 I will greatly multiply your descendants,” the Lord’s angel added, 5 “so that they will be too numerous to count.” 6 16:11 Then the Lord’s angel said to her,
“You are now 7 pregnant
and are about to give birth 8 to a son.
You are to name him Ishmael, 9
for the Lord has heard your painful groans. 10
16:12 He will be a wild donkey 11 of a man.
He will be hostile to everyone, 12
and everyone will be hostile to him. 13
He will live away from 14 his brothers.”
16:13 So Hagar named the Lord who spoke to her, “You are the God who sees me,” 15 for she said, “Here I have seen one who sees me!” 16
