1 Or Saraï femme d'Abram ne lui avait enfanté aucun enfant, mais elle avait une servante Egyptienne, nommée Agar.

2 Et elle dit à Abram : Voici maintenant, l'Eternel m'a rendue stérile; viens, je te prie, vers ma servante, peut-être aurai-je des enfants par elle. Et Abram acquiesça à la parole de Saraï.

3 Alors Saraï, femme d'Abram, prit Agar sa servante Egyptienne, et la donna pour femme à Abram son mari, après qu'il eut demeuré dix ans au pays de Canaan.

4 Il vint donc vers Agar, et elle conçut. Et [Agar] voyant qu'elle avait conçu, méprisa sa maîtresse.

5 Et Saraï dit à Abram : L'outrage qui m'est fait, [revient] sur toi; je t'ai donné ma servante en ton sein, mais quand elle a vu qu'elle avait conçu, elle m'a méprisée; que l'Eternel en juge entre moi et toi.

6 Alors Abram répondit à Saraï : Voici, ta servante est entre tes mains, traite-la comme il te plaira. Saraï donc la maltraita, et [Agar] s'enfuit de devant elle.

7 Mais l'Ange de l'Eternel la trouva auprès d'une fontaine d'eau au désert, près de la fontaine qui est au chemin de Sur.

8 Et il lui dit : Agar, servante de Saraï, d'où viens-tu? et où vas-tu? et elle répondit : Je m'enfuis de devant Saraï ma maîtresse.

9 Et l'Ange de l'Eternel lui dit : Retourne à ta maîtresse, et t'humilie sous elle.

10 Davantage l'Ange de l'Eternel lui dit : Je multiplierai beaucoup ta postérité, tellement qu'elle ne se pourra nombrer; tant elle sera grande.

11 L'Ange de l'Eternel lui dit aussi : Voici, tu as conçu, et tu enfanteras un fils, que tu appelleras Ismaël, car l'Eternel a ouï ton affliction.

12 Et ce sera un homme [farouche comme] un âne sauvage; sa main sera contre tous, et la main de tous contre lui; et il habitera à la vue de tous ses frères.

13 Alors elle appela le nom de l'Eternel qui lui parlait à elle, tu es le [Dieu] Fort de vision; car elle dit, n'ai-je pas aussi vu ici après celui qui me voyait?

14 C'est pourquoi on a appelé ce puits, le puits du vivant qui me voit; lequel est entre Kadès et Béred.

15 Agar donc enfanta un fils à Abram; et Abram appela le nom de son fils, qu'Agar lui avait enfanté, Ismaël.

16 Or Abram était âgé de quatre-vingt six ans, quand Agar lui enfanta Ismaël.
