Hagar's Story - 2

Genesis Chapter 21


21:9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto Abraham, mocking.    
21:10 Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her son: for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, even with Isaac.    
21:11 And the thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight because of his son.    
21:12 And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called.    
21:13 And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation, because he is thy seed.    
21:14 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and a bottle of water, and gave it unto Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and the child, and sent her away: and she departed, and wandered in the wilderness of Beersheba.  
21:15 And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the child under one of the shrubs.    
21:16 And she went, and sat her down over against him a good way off, as it were a bowshot: for she said, Let me not see the death of the child. And she sat over against him, and lift up her voice, and wept.    
21:17 And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is.    
21:18 Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a great nation.    
21:19 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink.    
21:20 And God was with the lad; and he grew, and dwelt in the wilderness, and became an archer.    
21:21 And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran: and his mother took him a wife out of the land of Egypt.
