7 Now the angel of the Lord found her by a spring of water in the wilderness, by the spring on the way to Shur.8 He said, “Hagar, Sarai’s maid, where have you come from and where are you going?” And she said, “I am fleeing from the presence of my mistress Sarai.”9 Then the angel of the Lord said to her, “Return to your mistress, and submit yourself [a]to her authority.”10 Moreover, the angel of the Lord said to her, “I will greatly multiply your [b]descendants so that [c]they will be too many to count.”11 The angel of the Lord said to her further,
“Behold, you are with child, And you will bear a son; And you shall call his name [d]Ishmael, Because the Lord[e]has given heed to your affliction.
Genesis 21:17-18New American Standard Bible (NASB)
17 God heard the lad crying; and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, “What is the matter with you, Hagar? Do not fear, for God has heard the voice of the lad where he is.18 Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him by [a]the hand, for I will make a great nation of him.”
