Abram marrieth Agar, who bringeth forth Ismael.

[1] Now Sarai the wife of Abram, had brought forth no children; but having a handmaid, an Egyptian, named Agar,
Igitur Sarai, uxor Abram, non genuerat liberos : sed habens ancillam aegyptiam nomine Agar,

[2] She said to her husband: Behold, the Lord hath restrained me from bearing: go in unto my handmaid, it may be I may have children of her at least. And when he agreed to her request,
dixit marito suo : Ecce, conclusit me Dominus, ne parerem. Ingredere ad ancillam meam, si forte saltem ex illa suscipiam filios. Cumque ille acquiesceret deprecanti,

[3] She took Agar the Egyptian her handmaid, ten years after they first dwelt in the land of Chanaan, and gave her to her husband to wife.
tulit Agar aegyptiam ancillam suam post annos decem quam habitare coeperant in terra Chanaan : et dedit eam viro suo uxorem.

[4] And he went in to her. But she, perceiving that she was with child, despised her mistress.
Qui ingressus est ad eam. At illa concepisse se videns, despexit dominam suam.

[5] And Sarai said to Abram: Thou dost unjustly with me: I gave my handmaid into thy bosom, and she perceiving herself to be with child, despiseth me. The Lord judge between me and thee.
Dixitque Sarai ad Abram : Inique agis contra me : ego dedi ancillam meam in sinum tuum, quae videns quod conceperit, despectui me habet : judicet Dominus inter me et te.

[6] And Abram made answer, and said to her: Behold thy handmaid is in thy own hand, use her as it pleaseth thee. And when Sarai afflicted her, she ran away.
Cui respondens Abram : Ecce, ait, ancilla tua in manu tua est, utere ea ut libet. Affligente igitur eam Sarai, fugam iniit.

[7] And the angel of the Lord having found her, by a fountain of water in the wilderness, which is in the way to Sur in the desert,
Cumque invenisset eam angelus Domini juxta fontem aquae in solitudine, qui est in via Sur in deserto,

[8] He said to her: Agar, handmaid of Sarai, whence comest thou? and whither goest thou? And she answered: I flee from the face of Sarai, my mistress.
dixit ad illam : Agar ancilla Sarai, unde venis? et quo vadis? Quae respondit : A facie Sarai dominae meae ego fugio.

[9] And the angel of the Lord said to her: Return to thy mistress, and humble thyself under her hand.
Dixitque ei angelus Domini : Revertere ad dominam tuam, et humiliare sub manu illius.

[10] And again he said: I will multiply thy seed exceedingly, and it shall not be numbered for multitude.
Et rursum : Multiplicans, inquit, multiplicabo semen tuum, et non numerabitur prae multitudine.

[11] And again: Behold, said he, thou art with child, and thou shalt bring forth a son: and thou shalt call his name Ismael, because the Lord hath heard thy affliction.
Ac deinceps : Ecce, ait, concepisti, et paries filium : vocabisque nomen ejus Ismael, eo quod audierit Dominus afflictionem tuam.

[12] He shall be a wild man: his hand will be against all men, and all men's hands against him: and he shall pitch his tents over against all his brethren.
Hic erit ferus homo : manus ejus contra omnes, et manus omnium contra eum : et e regione universorum fratrum suorum figet tabernacula.

[13] And she called the name of the Lord that spoke unto her: Thou the God who hast seen me. For she said: Verily here have I seen the hinder parts of him that seeth me.
Vocavit autem nomen Domini qui loquebatur ad eam : Tu Deus qui vidisti me. Dixit enim : Profecto hic vidi posteriora videntis me.

[14] Therefore she called that well, The well of him that liveth and seeth me. The same is between Cades and Barad.
Propterea appellavit puteum illum Puteum viventis et videntis me. Ipse est inter Cades et Barad.

[15] And Agar brought forth a son to Abram: who called his name Ismael.
Peperitque Agar Abrae filium : qui vocavit nomen ejus Ismael.

[16] Abram was four score and six years old when Agar brought him forth Ismael.
Octoginta et sex annorum erat Abram quando peperit ei Agar Ismaelem.
