Chapter 16


Sarai gives Hagar to Abram as his wife—Hagar flees from Sarai—An angel commands Hagar to return and submit herself to Sarai—Hagar bears Ishmael.


1 Now Sarai Abram’s wife bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar.


2 And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the Lord hath restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai.


3 And Sarai Abram’s wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife.


Married to more than one wife.

Maid was an Egyptian.


4 ¶ And he went in unto Hagar, and she conceived: and when she saw that she had conceived, her mistress was despised in her eyes.


5 And Sarai said unto Abram, My wrong be upon thee: I have given my maid into thy bosom; and when she saw that she had conceived, I was despised in her eyes: the Lord judge between me and thee.


6 But Abram said unto Sarai, Behold, thy maid is in thy hand; do to her as it pleaseth thee. And when Sarai dealt hardly with her, she fled from her face.


7 ¶ And the angel of the Lord found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur.


Angel of the Lord ….. Wow what kind of angel was this?


8 And he said, Hagar, Sarai’s maid, whence camest thou? and whither wilt thou go? And she said, I flee from the face of my mistress Sarai.


9 And the angel of the Lord said unto her, Return to thy mistress, and submit thyself under her hands.


10 And the angel of the Lord said unto her, I will multiply thy seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude.


11 And the angel of the Lord said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the Lord hath heard thy affliction.


Ishmael = 7


12 And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.


13 And she called the name of the Lord that spake unto her, Thou God seest me: for she said, Have I also here looked after him that seeth me?


14 Wherefore the well was called Beer-lahai-roi; behold, it is between Kadesh and Bered.


15 ¶ And Hagar bare Abram a son: and Abram called his son’s name, which Hagar bare, Ishmael.


16 And Abram was fourscore and six years old, when Hagar bare Ishmael to Abram.


Hagar =5
First time using fourscore and 6 44446 ? 46? Or 6666 ?

Chapter 15


Abram desires offspring—The Lord promises him seed in number as the stars—Abram believes the promise—His seed will be strangers in Egypt—Then, after four generations, they will inherit Canaan.


1 After these things the word of the Lord came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.


First vision

Lord can influence your dreams!


2 And Abram said, Lord God, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus?


3 And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir.


4 And, behold, the word of the Lord came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.


5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.


6 And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness.


7 And he said unto him, I am the Lord that brought thee out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it.


8 And he said, Lord God, whereby shall I know that I shall inherit it?


9 And he said unto him, Take me an heifer of three years old, and a she goat of three years old, and a ram of three years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon.


Heifer 3 years

She goat 3 years old

Ram 3 years old

Turtledove

Young pigeon why young and three years old ? Why these animals?


10 And he took unto him all these, and divided them in the midst, and laid each piece one against another: but the birds divided he not.


Divided all but the birds


11 And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Abram drove them away.


12 And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.


horror of great darkness fell upon him.


13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;


400 years


14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.


15 And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried in a good old age.


16 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.


17 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces.


smoking furnace burning lamp passed between those pieces.


18 In the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:


19 The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites,


20 And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,


21 And the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.
