Weekly Bible Commentary 12-31


By Wes Woodard

Genesis 21 – “The Birth of Isaac”

Sarah conceived and had a son. Abraham circumcised him on the eighth day. Hagar is forced away from the household. She wandered in the wilderness until the Angel of the Lord appeared to her and said, “Do not fear for God has heard the voice of the lad and will make him into a great nation.  Then God opened her eyes and she saw a well of water and she filled the skin with water and gave her son a drink.”  God was with the boy and he grew up to be an archer. He lived in the wilderness of Paran, and, Hagar got an Egyptian girl to be his wife.
