Abram penee asɛm a Sarai ka kyerɛɛ no no so. 3Abram tenaa Kanaan asase so mfe du akyi no, ne yere Sarai de Misraimni abaawa Hagar no kɔmaa ne kunu no sɛ ɔnware no. 4Abram ne Hagar dae, na onyinsɛnee.

Bere a Hagar huu sɛ wanyinsɛn no, ofii ase buu nʼawuraa Sarai animtiaa. 5Enti Sarai ka kyerɛɛ Abram se, “Saa ɔhaw a aba me so yi nyinaa fi wo! Mede mʼabaawa maa wo; afei a wahu sɛ wanyinsɛn no nti, otiatia mʼanim. Awurade mmu me ne wo ntam atɛn.”

6Nanso Abram ka kyerɛɛ Sarai se, “Ɔyɛ wʼabaawa. Nea wopɛ sɛ wode yɛ no biara, fa yɛ no.” Efi saa bere no, Sarai tan nʼabaawa Hagar ani ma oguan fii ne nkyɛn.

7Awurade bɔfo huu Hagar wɔ nsu aniwa bi ho wɔ sare no so. Na saa nsu aniwa no da ɔkwan a ɛkɔ kurow bi a wɔfrɛ no Sur no nkyɛn. 8Ɔbɔfo no bisaa Hagar se, “Sarai abaawa Hagar, wufi he, na worekɔ he?”

Hagar buaa no se, “Mereguan afi mʼawuraa Sarai nkyɛn.”

9Na Awurade bɔfo no ka kyerɛɛ Hagar se, “San kɔ wʼawuraa no nkyɛn, na kɔbrɛ wo ho ase ma no.” 10Ɔbɔfo no ka kaa ho se, “Mɛma wʼase afɛe a, wɔkan a ɛnyɛ yiye.”

11Awurade bɔfo no san ka kyerɛɛ Hagar se,

“Woanyinsɛn,

na wobɛwo ɔbabarima.

Wobɛto no din Ismael, efisɛ

Awurade ate wʼamanehunu.

12Ɔbɛyɛ sɛ sare so afurum.

Obetia nnipa nyinaa,

13Eyi akyi no ɔkae se, “Mahu Nea ohu me.” Ɛno nti, ɔde din El-Roi a ase ne “Onyankopɔn a ohu me” no too no. 14Ɛno nti na wɔfrɛ nsu aniwa no se Beer-Lahai-Roi a ase ne “Onyankopɔn Teasefo a ohu me abura.” Ɛda Kades ne Bered ntam besi nnɛ.

15Enti Hagar woo ɔbabarima maa Abram. Abram too abofra no din Ismael. 16Hagar woo Ismael no, na Abram adi mfe aduɔwɔtwe asia.
