Genesis 16:10-12 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

10 The Messenger of the Lord also said to her, “I will give you many descendants. No one will be able to count them because there will be so many.” 11 Then the Messenger of the Lord said to her,

“You are pregnant,
    and you will give birth to a son.
You will name him Ishmael [God Hears],
    because the Lord has heard your cry of distress.
12 He will be as free and wild as an untamed donkey.
He will fight with everyone, and everyone will fight with him.
He will have conflicts with all his relatives.”[a]
