ዘፍጥረት 16:1-16

አጋርና እስማኤል

1የአብራም ሚስት ሦራ፣ ልጆች አልወለደችለትም ነበር፤ እርሷም አጋር የምትባል ግብፃዊት አገልጋይ ነበረቻት። 2አብራምንም፣ “እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ልጅ እንዳልወልድ አድርጎኛል። ምናልባት በእርሷ በኩል ልጆች አገኝ እንደሆን ሄደህ ከአገልጋዬ ጋር ተኛ” አለችው።

አብራምም ሦራ ባለችው ተስማማ። 3አብራም በከነዓን ምድር ዐሥር ዓመት ከኖረ በኋላ ሚስቱ ሦራ ግብፃዊት አገልጋይዋን አጋርን ሚስት እንድትሆነው ለባሏ ሰጠችው። 4አብራምም ከአጋር ጋር ተኛ፤ እርሷም ፀነሰች። አጋርም ነፍሰ ጡር መሆኗን ባወቀች ጊዜ እመቤቷን መናቅ ጀመረች። 5ሦራም አብራምን፣ “ለደረሰብኝ በደል ተጠያቂው አንተ ነህ፤ አገልጋዬ ዕቅፍህ ውስጥ እንድትገባ እኔው ሰጠሁህ፤ አሁን ግን ይኸው ማርገዟን ስታውቅ ትንቀኝ ጀመር፤ እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) በአንተና በእኔ መካከል ይፍረድ” አለችው።

6አብራምም፣ “አገልጋይሽ እንደሆነች በእጅሽ ውስጥ ናት፤ የፈለግሽውን አድርጊባት” አላት። ከዚያም ሦራ ስላሠቃየቻት አጋር ጥላት ኰበለለች።

7የእግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) መልአክ አጋርን በአንድ የውሃ ምንጭ አጠገብ በምድረ በዳ አገኛት፤ ምንጩም ወደ ሱር በሚወስደው መንገድ ዳር ነበር። 8መልአኩም፣ “የሦራ አገልጋይ አጋር ሆይ፤ ከየት መጣሽ? ወዴትስ ትሄጃለሽ?” አላት፤

እርሷም፣ “ከእመቤቴ ከሦራ ኰብልዬ መምጣቴ ነው” ብላ መለሰች።

9የእግዚአብሔርም (ያህዌ) መልአክ፣ “ወደ እመቤትሽ ተመለሽ፤ ለእርሷም ተገዥላት” አላት። 10ደግሞም መልአኩ፣ “ዘርሽን እጅግ አበዛለሁ፤ ከብዛቱም የተነሣ ሊቈጠር አይችልም” አላት።

11የእግዚአብሔርም (ያህዌ) መልአክ በተጨማሪ እንዲህ አላት፤

“እነሆ፤ ፀንሰሻል፤

ወንድ ልጅ ትወልጃለሽ፤

እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ችግርሽን ተመልክቶአል፤

ስሙን እስማኤል16፥11 እስማኤል ማለት እግዚአብሔር ይሰማል ማለት ነው ትዪዋለሽ።

12እርሱም እንደ ዱር አህያ ይሆናል፤

እጁንም ባገኘው ሰው ሁሉ ላይ ያነሣል፤

ያገኘውም ሁሉ እጁን ያነሣበታል፤

ከወንድሞቹ ሁሉ ጋር እንደ ተጣላ ይኖራል።” 16፥12 ወይም በስተ ምሥራቅ ይኖራል

13እርሷም ያናገራትን እግዚአብሔርን (ያህዌ)፣ ኤልሮኢ ብላ ጠራችው፤ ምክንያቱም “የሚያየኝን አሁን አየሁት”16፥13 ወይም በኋላዬ አየሁት ብላ ነበርና። 14ከዚህ የተነሣ የዚያ ምንጭ ስም፣ “ብኤርለሃይሮኢ”16፥14 ብኤርለሃይሮኢ ማለት የሚያየኝ ‘የሕያዉ’ ምንጭ ማለት ነው ተብሎ ተጠራ፤ እስካሁንም በቃዴስና በባሬድ መካከል ይገኛል።

15አጋር ለአብራም ወንድ ልጅ ወለደችለት፤ አብራምም ስሙን እስማኤል ብሎ ጠራው። 16አብራም፣ አጋር እስማኤልን በወለደች ጊዜ ዕድሜው 86 ዓመት ነበር።

Genesis 16:1-16

1Now Sarai Abram’s wife bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar. 2And 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.16.2 obtain…: Heb. be built by her 3And 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.

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. 5And 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. 6But 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.16.6 as…: Heb. that which is good in thine eyes16.6 dealt…: Heb. afflicted her

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. 8And 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. 9And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Return to thy mistress, and submit thyself under her hands.

10And the angel of the LORD said unto her, I will multiply thy seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude. 11And 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.16.11 Ishmael: that is, God shall hear 12And 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. 13And 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? 14Wherefore the well was called Beer-lahai-roi; behold, it is between Kadesh and Bered.16.14 Beer-lahai-roi: that is, The well of him that liveth and seeth me

15¶ And Hagar bare Abram a son: and Abram called his son’s name, which Hagar bare, Ishmael. 16And Abram was fourscore and six years old, when Hagar bare Ishmael to Abram.
