GENESIS 16:7-15 (KJV)

7And the angel of YHVH 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 YHVH said unto her, Return to thy mistress, and submit thyself under her hands. 10And the angel of YHVH said unto her, I will multiply thy seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude. 11And the angel of YHVH said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Yishmael; because YHVH hath heard thy affliction. 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 YHVH 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 Be’er Lahai Ro’i; behold, it is between Qadesh and Bered.
