Genesis 16

16:1 Now Sarai, Abram's wife, bore him no children: and she had
 a handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name [was] Hagar.
16:2 And Sarai said to Abram, Behold, now, the LORD hath
 restrained me from bearing: I pray thee go in to my maid; it
 may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened
 to the voice of Sarai.
16:3 And Sarai, Abram's wife, took Hagar her maid, the Egyptian,
 after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave
 her to her husband Abram to be his wife.
16:4 And he went in to Hagar, and she conceived: and when she
 saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her
16:5 And Sarai said to Abram, my wrong [be] upon thee: I have
 given my maid into thy bosom; and when she saw that she had
 conceived, I was despised in her eyes: the LORD judge between
 me and thee.
16:6 But Abram said to Sarai, Behold, thy maid [is] in thy hand;
 do to her as it pleaseth thee. And when Sarai dealt hardly with
 her, she fled from her face.
16:7 And the angel of the LORD found her by a fountain of water
 in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur.
16:8 And he said, Hagar, Sarai's maid, whence camest thou? and
 whither wilt thou go? And she said, I flee from the face of my
 mistress Sarai.
16:9 And the angel of the LORD said to her, Return to thy
 mistress, and submit thyself under her hands.
16:10 And the angel of the LORD said to her, I will multiply thy
 seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude.
16:11 And the angel of the LORD said to her, Behold, thou [art]
 with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name
 Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction.
16:12 And he will be a wild man; his hand [will be] against
 every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell
 in the presence of all his brethren.
16:13 And she called the name of the LORD that spoke to her,
 Thou God seest me: for she said, Have I also here looked after
 him that seeth me?
16:14 Wherefore the well was called Beer-la-hai-roi; behold, [it
 is] between Kadesh and Bered.
16:15 And Hagar bore Abram a son: and Abram called his son's
 name, which Hagar bore, Ishmael.
16:16 And Abram [was] eighty six years old, when Hagar bore
 Ishmael to Abram.
