Genesis 16:1-3 New International Version

Hagar and Ishmael

16 1  Now Sarai, Abram's wife, had borne him no children. But she had an Egyptian slave named Hagar; 2  so she said to Abram, "The Lord has kept me from having children. Go, sleep with my slave; perhaps I can build a family through her." Abram agreed to what Sarai said. 3  So after Abram had been living in Canaan ten years, Sarai his wife took her Egyptian slave Hagar and gave her to her husband to be his wife.
