1Now Sarai Avram's isha bore him no children; and she had a shifchah, an Egyptian, whose shem was Hagar. 2And Sarai said unto Avram, Hinei now, Hashem hath restrained me from bearing; go now in unto my shifchah; it may be that I may build family by her. And Avram paid heed to the voice of Sarai. 3And Sarai Avram's isha took Hagar her shifchah the Egyptian, after Avram had dwelt ten years in Eretz Kena'an, and gave her to her husband Avram to be his isha. 4And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived; and when she saw that she had conceived, her gevirah was despised in her eyes. 5And Sarai said unto Avram, My wrong be upon thee; I have given my shifchah unto thy kheyk; and when she saw that she had conceived, I was despised in her eyes; Hashem judge between me and thee. 6But Avram said unto Sarai, Hinei, thy shifchah is in thy hand; do to her as it pleaseth thee. And when Sarai dealt harshly with her, she fled from her face. 7And the Malach Hashem found her by a spring of mayim in the midbar, near the spring on the road to Shur. 8And he said, Hagar, Sarai's shifchah, from where camest thou? And where wilt thou go? And she said, I flee from the face of my gevirah Sarai. 9And the Malach Hashem said unto her, Return to thy gevirah, and submit thyself under her hands. 10And the Malach Hashem said unto her, I will multiply thy zera exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude. 11And the Malach Hashem said unto her, See, thou art with child and shalt bear ben, and shalt call shmo Yishmael; because Hashem shema thy oni (misery). 12And he will be a pere adam; his yad will be against kol, and kol yad against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren. 13And she called the Shem of Hashem Who spoke unto her, El Roi (G-d Who Sees); for she said, Have I also here seen after Him that seeth me? 14Therefore the well was called Beer-lahai-roi; hinei, it is between Kadesh and Bered. 15And Hagar bore Avram ben; and Avram called shem bno, which Hagar bore, Yishmael (Ishmael). 16And Avram was fourscore and six shanah when Hagar bore Yishmael to Avram.

1And Sarai, Aḇram’s wife, had borne him no child. And she had a Mitsrian female servant whose name was Haḡar.
2And Sarai said to Aḇram, “See, יהוה has kept me from bearing children. Please, go in to my female servant. It might be that I am built up by her.” And Aḇram listened to the voice of Sarai.
3And Sarai, Aḇram’s wife, took Haḡar her female servant, the Mitsrian, and gave her to her husband Aḇram to be his wife, after Aḇram had dwelt ten years in the land of Kena‛an.
4And he went in to Haḡar, and she conceived. And when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes.
5And Sarai said to Aḇram, “My wrong be upon you! I gave my female servant into your bosom. And when she saw that she had conceived, I was despised in her eyes. Let יהוה judge between you and me.”
6And Aḇram said to Sarai, “See, your female servant is in your hand, do to her what is good in your eyes.” And Sarai treated her harshly, and she fled from her presence.
7And the Messenger of יהוה found her by a spring of water in the wilderness, by the spring on the way to Shur,
8and He said, “Haḡar, Sarai’s female servant, where have you come from, and where are you going?” And she said, “I am fleeing from the presence of Sarai, my mistress.”
9And the Messenger of יהוה said to her, “Return to your mistress, and humble yourself under her hand.”
10And the Messenger of יהוה said to her, “I am going to increase your seed greatly, too numerous to be counted.”
11And the Messenger of יהוה said to her, “See, you are conceiving and bearing a son, and shall call his name Yishma‛ĕl, because יהוה has heard your affliction.
12“And he is to be a wild man, his hand against every one and every one’s hand against him, and dwell over against all his brothers.”
13And she called the Name of יהוה who spoke to her, “You are the Ěl who sees,” for she said, “Even here have I seen after Him who sees me?”
14That is why the well was called Be’ĕr Laḥai Ro’i, see, it is between Qaḏĕsh and Bereḏ.
15And Haḡar bore Aḇram a son, and Aḇram called the name of his son, whom Haḡar bore, Yishma‛ĕl.
16And Aḇram was eighty-six years old when Haḡar bore Yishma‛ĕl to Aḇram.
