Genesis 16:4 CPDV

2  she said to her husband: 'Behold, the Lord has closed me, lest I give birth. Enter to my handmaid, so that perhaps I may receive sons of her at least.' And when he agreed to her supplication,

3  she took Hagar the Egyptian, her handmaid, ten years after they began to live in the land of Canaan, and she gave her to her husband as a wife.

4  And he entered to her. But when she saw that she had conceived, she despised her mistress.

5  And Sarai said to Abram: 'You have acted unfairly against me. I gave my handmaid into your bosom, who, when she saw that she had conceived, held me in contempt. May the Lord judge between me and you.'

6  Abram responded to her by saying, 'Behold, your handmaid is in your hand to treat as it pleases you.' And so, when Sarai afflicted her, she took flight.
