Hagar draws water from the well – Genesis 21:19 – Hagar was Sarah’s Egyptian maid that was given to Abraham by Sarah.

Hagar draws water from the well - Genesis 21:19
After being cast out by Sarah, Hagar and her son run out of water in the wilderness. God forms a well that Hagar draws water from that allow them to survive.

Because Sarah was barren and could have no children, she gave Hagar to Abraham so he could have children for posterity. When Hagar became pregnant with Abraham’s seed Sarah quickly regretted her decision to give Hagar to Abraham. This would put a strain in the relationship between Sarah and Hagar. Seeing Sarah’s regret, Abraham tells Sarah that she is your maid. Do with her as you wish. After being treated harshly by Sarah, Hagar runs away. The Angel of the Lord finds Hagar by a fountain in the wilderness and advises her to return to her mistress. The Angel of the Lord encourages her by reminding her that she is bearing a child and that the Lord would multiply her seed so that it could not be numbered. Hagar gives birth to a son. Abraham becomes a father at eighty six years old and names his son Ishmael.

Eventually Sarah became pregnant. Abraham was 100 years old when Sarah gave birth and he named his son Isaac.

When Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian mocking her son, she ordered Abraham cast her and her son out.

Abraham rose up early in the morning, gave Hagar bread and a bottle of water and cast her and Ishmael out per Sarah’s wishes.

15 And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the child under one of the shrubs.

16 And she went, and sat her down over against him a good way off, as it were a bowshot: for she said, Let me not see the death of the child. And she sat over against him, and lift up her voice, and wept.

17 And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is.

18 Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a great nation.

19 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink.
