15When the water in the skin was gone, she put the boy under one of the bushes.

16Then she went off and sat down about a bowshot away, for she thought, “I cannot watch the boy die.” And as she sat there, she Hebrew; Septuagint the child began to sob. 17God heard the boy crying, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, “What is the matter, Hagar? Do not be afraid; God has heard the boy crying as he lies there.

18Lift the boy up and take him by the hand, for I will make him into a great nation.”
