Context Readings

Hagar And Ishmael

13 Nevertheless, I will make the slave girl's son into a nation, since he, too, is your offspring." 14 So early the next morning, Abraham got up, took bread and a leather bottle of water, gave them to Hagar, and placed them on her shoulder. He then sent her away, along with the child. She went off and roamed in the Beer-sheba wilderness. 15 Eventually, the water in the leather bottle ran out, so she placed the child under one of the bushes.
