1 USarayi umka-Abrama wayengamzaleli mntwana; kepha wayenencekukazi yaseGibithe, igama layo linguHagari.
2 USarayi wathi ku-Abrama: “Bheka-ke, uJehova ungivalile ekuzaleni; mawungene kuyo incekukazi yami; mhlawumbe ngizakwakhelwa ngayo.” U-Abrama walalela izwi likaSarayi.
3 USarayi, umka-Abrama, wathatha uHagari waseGibithe, incekukazi yakhe, wamnika u-Abrama indoda yakhe abe ngumkakhe, u-Abrama esehlalile iminyaka eyishumi ezweni laseKhanani.
4 Wangena kuHagari; wakhulelwa. Esebonile ukuthi ukhulelwe, inkosikazi yakhe yadeleleka emehlweni akhe.
5 USarayi wathi ku-Abrama: “Okubi okwenziwe kimi akube phezu kwakho. Mina nganikela incekukazi yami esifubeni sakho; kepha nxa isibonile ukuthi ikhulelwe, ngase ngideleleka emehlweni ayo; uJehova makahlulele icala phakathi kwami nawe.”
6 U-Abrama wathi kuSarayi: “Bheka, incekukazi yakho isesandleni sakho; yenza kuyo okufanele emehlweni akho.” USarayi wayilaya, yabaleka ebusweni bakhe.
7 Ingelosi kaJehova yamfumana ngasemthonjeni wamanzi ehlane, umthombo osendleleni eya eShuri.
8 Yathi: “Hagari, ncekukazi kaSarayi, uvelaphi na? Uyangaphi na?” Wathi: “Ngibaleka ebusweni bukaSarayi inkosikazi yami.”
9 Ingelosi kaJehova yathi kuye: “Buyela kuyo inkosikazi yakho, uzithobise phansi kwesandla sayo.”
10 Ingelosi kaJehova yathi futhi kuye: “Ngiyakwandisa kakhulu inzalo yakho, ingabe isabalwa ngobuningi bayo.”
11 Ingelosi kaJehova yathi kuye: “Bheka, usukhulelwe; uyakuzala indodana, uyiqambe igama lokuthi u-Ishmayeli, ngokuba uJehova uzwile ukuhlupheka kwakho.
12 Uyakuba ngumuntu onjengembongolo engathanjisiwe, isandla sakhe simelane nabo bonke, nesandla sabo bonke simelane naye, ahlale ngasempumalanga kwabafowabo bonke.”
13 Wamqamba uJehova owayekhulume kuye igama lokuthi: “Wena unguNkulunkulu Obonayo,” ngokuba wathi: “Imbala ngimbonile ongibonayo na?”
14 Ngalokho umthombo wabizwa ngokuthi iBeri Lahayi Royi; bheka, uphakathi kweKadeshi neBeredi.
15 UHagari wamzalela u-Abrama indodana; u-Abrama waqamba igama lendodana yakhe ayizalayo uHagari ngokuthi u-Ishmayeli.
16 U-Abrama wayeneminyaka engamashumi ayisishiyagalombili nesithupha mhla uHagari emzalela u-Abrama u-Ishmayeli.
