Genesis 16:4-6 The Voice (VOICE)

So Abram slept with Hagar. It was not long before she conceived. But as soon as she knew she was pregnant with Abram’s child, Hagar’s attitude changed and she became haughty toward Sarai. Sarai would not tolerate her servant looking down on her, so she approached Abram again.

Sarai (to Abram): This is all your fault. I allowed my servant girl to be intimate with you, and as soon as she saw she was pregnant with your child, she started behaving arrogantly and disrespectfully toward me! I have done nothing to deserve this. Let the Eternal One judge who is in the wrong here—you or me!

Abram (to Sarai): Sarai—look, she’s still your servant girl. Do whatever you want with her. She’s under your control.

So Sarai clamped down on Hagar severely, and Hagar ran away.
