Abraham's concubine, Ishamel's mother.
Hagar and Ishmael wandered in the
wilderness of Beersheba.
Hagar was Sarah's Egyptian maidservant. When it seemed impossible
for Sarah to have children, she urged Abraham
to have a child with Hagar. When Hagar became pregnant, Sarah became jealous
and Hagar fled into the desert. An angel appeared to her and told
her to return. The son that Hagar bore was Ishmael.
When Sarah's own son Isaac was born, Sarah asked
that Hagar and Ishmael be sent away. God told Abraham to assent
to this and God preserved Hagar and Ishmael in the desert.
