Genesis 20:11  Genesis 21:16

11 And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely there is no fear of God in this place, and they will slay me because of my wife.

12 But she is also truly my sister, the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother; and she became my wife.

13 And when God caused me to wander from my father’s house, I said to her, This is your kindness which you must do to me: At every place where we go, say of me, He is my brother.

14 Then Abimelech took sheep and oxen and male servants and female servants, and gave them to Abraham; and he returned to him Sarah his wife.

15 And Abimelech said, My land is now before you; dwell wherever it pleases you.

16 And to Sarah he said, I have now given your brother a thousand pieces of silver. It is now your vindication before all who are with you. And in every respect you have been cleared.

17 And Abraham prayed to God; and God healed Abimelech and his wife and his female servants, so that they bore children.

18 For Jehovah had completely shut up all the wombs of the house of Abimelech because of Sarah, Abraham’s wife.

 

CHAPTER 21

1 And Jehovah visited Sarah as he had said, and Jehovah did to Sarah as He had promised.

2 And Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the appointed time of which God had spoken to him.

3 And Abraham called the name of his son who was born to him, whom Sarah bore to him, Isaac.

4 And Abraham circumcised Isaac his son when he was eight days old, as God had commanded him.

5 And Abraham was a hundred years old when Isaac his son was born to him.

6 And Sarah said, God has made me laugh; everyone who hears will laugh with me.

7 And she said, Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? Yet I have borne him a son in his old age.

8 And the child grew and was weaned. And Abraham made a great feast on the day that Isaac was weaned.

9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, mocking.

10 So she said to Abraham, Cast out this maidservant and her son, for the son of this maidservant shall not inherit with my son Isaac.

11 And the matter displeased Abraham greatly on account of his son.

12 And God said to Abraham, Do not be displeased on account of the boy and on account of your maidservant. Whatever Sarah says to you, listen to her voice, for in Isaac shall your seed be called.

13 And of the son of the maidservant I will also make a nation, because he is your seed.

14 And Abraham rose up early in the morning and took bread and a waterskin full of water and gave them to Hagar, putting them on her shoulder, and gave her the child and sent her away. And she departed and wandered in the wilderness of Beer-sheba.

15 When the water in the waterskin was finished, she cast the child under one of the bushes.

16 And she went and sat herself down opposite him, a fair distance away, about a bowshot away, for she said, Do not let me look upon the death of the child. And as she sat opposite him, she lifted up her voice and wept.
