To your descendants I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates, 19 the land of the Kenites, the Kenizzites, the Kadmonites, 20 the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim, 21 the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.
Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you.
Why did you not tell me that she was your wife? Here is your wife, take her, and be gone.
your offspring shall be oppressed for four hundred years and afterward they shall come out with great possessions
You have given me no offspring and so a slave born in my house is to be my heir.

I gave my slave-girl to your embrace, and when she saw that she had conceived, she looked on me with contempt.
Then Sarai dealt harshly with her, and she ran away from her.
You see that the Lord has prevented me from bearing children; go in to my slave-girl; it may be that I shall obtain children by her.
“Your slave-girl is in your power do to her as you please.”
I am running away from my mistress Sarai.
Return to your mistress, and submit to her. I will so greatly multiply your offspring that they cannot be counted for multitude.
Now you have conceived and shall bear a son; you shall call him Ishmael,[a] for the Lord has given heed to your affliction
