A16 Hagar And Ishmael

Sarai, Abram's wife, had no children;
Her slave girl Hagar was an Egyptian;
Sarai offered this girl to Abram,
As a solution to this problem.

When Hagar became pregnant,
She turned very much arrogant.
She despised her mistress;
This put Sarai in distress.

When Sarai told this to Abram,
He told her to handle the same;
She treated the slave cruelly;
The girl ran away silently.

En way, the Lord's angel
Advised the slave girl,
To go back to her mistress
And continue her services.

He said, 'You'll have a son.
He'll be against everyone.
He'll be liked by none.
And always live alone.'

Born was a son to the slave girl;
Abram named him Ishmael;
Eighty-six years old he was then,
When thro' this girl, he got his son.

The tragic result of Abraham and Sarah's lack of faith that God would keep His promise to give them a child in His own time.Excellent work, Simon. Regards, Sandra
