14 Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread and a bottle of water, and gave it to Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and gave her the child, and sent her away. She departed, and wandered in the wilderness of Beersheba.
15 The water in the bottle was spent, and she cast the child under one of the shrubs.
16 She went and sat down opposite him, a good way off, about a bow shot away. For she said, 'Don't let me see the death of the child.' She sat over against him, and lifted up her voice, and wept.
17 God heard the voice of the boy. The angel of God called to Hagar out of the sky, and said to her, 'What ails you, Hagar? Don't be afraid. For God has heard the voice of the boy where he is.
18 Get up, lift up the boy, and hold him in your hand. For I will make him a great nation.'
