Genesis 16 Maori Bible (MAORI)
16 Na kahore a Harai, te wahine a Aperama, i whai tamariki mana; na he pononga wahine tana, no Ihipa, ko Hakara tona ingoa.
2 Na ka mea a Harai ki a Aperama, Nana, kua tutakina nei ahau e Ihowa kei whanau tamariki: mau e haere ki roto, ki taku pononga; mana pea ahau e tu ai. A ka whakarongo a Aperama ki te reo o Harai.
3 Na ka tango a Harai, wahine a Aperama i a Hakara, i te wahine o Ihipa, i tana pononga, i te takanga o nga tau kotahi tekau o te nohoanga o Aperama i te whenua o Kanaana, a homai ana e ia ki a Aperama, ki tana tane, hei wahine mana.
4 Na ka haere ia ki roto, ki a Hakara, a ka hapu ia: a, no tona kitenga kua hapu ia, ka iti tona rangatira wahine ki tana titiro.
5 Na ka mea a Harai ki a Aperama, Hei runga i a koe tenei tutu ki ahau: i hoatu e ahau taku pononga wahine ki tou uma; a, no tona kitenga kua hapu ia, ka iti ahau ki tana titiro iho: ma Ihowa e whakariterite taku korero me tau hoki.
6 Na ka mea a Aperama ki a Harai, Ha, kei tou ringa ano tau pononga; mau e mea ki a ia te mea e pai ana ki tau titiro iho. Na ka whakatupu kino a Harai i a ia, a rere ana ia i tona aroaro.
7 A ka kitea ia e te anahera a te Atua i tetahi puna wai i te koraha, i te puna i te huarahi ki Huru,
8 Ka mea, E Hakara, e te pononga a Harai, i haere mai koe i hea? e anga ana hoki koe ko hea? a ka mea ia, E rere ana ahau i a Harai, i toku rangatira.
9 Na ka mea te anahera a Ihowa ki a ia, Hoki atu ki tou rangatira, kia whakaririka hoki koe i raro i ona ringa.
10 Ka mea ano te anahera a Ihowa ki a ia, Ka whakanuia rawatia e ahau tou uri, a e kore e taea te tatau, i te tini hoki.
11 I mea ano te anahera a Ihowa ki a ia, Nana, e hapu ana koe, a ka whanau he tama, me hua e koe tona ingoa ko Ihimaera; mo Ihowa i whakarongo ki tau tangi.
12 A ka rite ia ki te kaihe mohoao i waenganui o te tangata; ka ara tona ringa ki te katoa, me te ringa o te katoa ki a ia; a ka noho ia i te aroaro o ona teina katoa.
13 Na ka huaina e ia te ingoa o Ihowa i korero nei ki a ia, He Atua koe e kite ana: i mea hoki ia, I titiro ranei ahau i koeni ki muri i toku kaititiro mai?
14 Koia i huaina ai taua puna ko Peererahairoi; na, kei waenganui i Karehe, i Perere.
15 Na ka whanau te tama a Hakara raua ko Aperama: a huaina ana e Aperama te ingoa o tana tama, i whanau nei i a Hakara, ko Ihimaera.
16 Na e waru tekau ma ono nga tau o Aperama i te whanautanga o Ihimaera tama a Hakara raua ko Aperama.
Genesis 16 New International Version (NIV)
Hagar and Ishmael
16 Now Sarai, Abram’s wife, had borne him no children. But she had an Egyptian slave named Hagar; 2 so she said to Abram, “The Lord has kept me from having children. Go, sleep with my slave; perhaps I can build a family through her.”
Abram agreed to what Sarai said. 3 So after Abram had been living in Canaan ten years, Sarai his wife took her Egyptian slave Hagar and gave her to her husband to be his wife. 4 He slept with Hagar, and she conceived.
When she knew she was pregnant, she began to despise her mistress. 5 Then Sarai said to Abram, “You are responsible for the wrong I am suffering. I put my slave in your arms, and now that she knows she is pregnant, she despises me. May the Lord judge between you and me.”
6 “Your slave is in your hands,” Abram said. “Do with her whatever you think best.” Then Sarai mistreated Hagar; so she fled from her.
7 The angel of the Lord found Hagar near a spring in the desert; it was the spring that is beside the road to Shur. 8 And he said, “Hagar, slave of Sarai, where have you come from, and where are you going?”
“I’m running away from my mistress Sarai,” she answered.
9 Then the angel of the Lord told her, “Go back to your mistress and submit to her.” 10 The angel added, “I will increase your descendants so much that they will be too numerous to count.”
11 The angel of the Lord also said to her:
“You are now pregnant
13 She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have now seen[c] the One who sees me.” 14 That is why the well was called Beer Lahai Roi[d]; it is still there, between Kadesh and Bered.
15 So Hagar bore Abram a son, and Abram gave the name Ishmael to the son she had borne. 16 Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar bore him Ishmael.
