And God said to▵ Abraham, Let it not be··evil in thine eyes on··account··of the lad, and on··account··of thy maidservant; all that Sarah says to▵ thee, hearken to her voice, for in Isaac shall thy seed be called.
And Abraham rose··early in the morning, and took bread, and a bottle◦ of water, and gave them to▵ Hagar, and set them on her shoulder, and the child, and sent· her ·away; and she went and strayed in the wilderness of Beer-sheba.
And she went and sat by herself, withdrawing herself a distance of about◦ a bowshot from his presence; for she said, Let me not see the death of the child; and she sat away from his presence; and she lifted up her voice, and wept.
And God heard the voice of the lad, and the angel of God called to▵ Hagar out··of the heavens, and said to her, What ails thee, Hagar? Fear not, for God has heard the voice of the lad, where he◦ is.
And now promise to me here◦ by God, that thou wilt not▫ do··falsely to me, nor◦ to my son▵, nor◦ to my grandson; according··to the mercy that I have done with thee, thou shalt do with··me, and with the land in which thou hast sojourned.
