Genesis 16:4-6 Living Bible (TLB)

So he slept with Hagar, and she conceived; and when she realized she was pregnant, she became very proud and arrogant toward her mistress Sarai.

Then Sarai said to Abram, “It’s all your fault. For now this servant girl of mine despises me, though I myself gave her the privilege of being your wife. May the Lord judge you for doing this to me!”[a]

“You have my permission to punish the girl as you see fit,” Abram replied. So Sarai beat her and she ran away.


  1. Genesis 16:5 May the Lord judge you for doing this to me, literally, “Let the Lord judge between me and you.”
