創世紀 Genesis
1亞巴郎的妻子撒辣依,沒有給他生孩子,她有個埃及婢女,名叫哈加爾。1Sarai, Abram's wife had not borne him a child, but she had an Egyptian servant named Hagar,
2撒辣依就對亞巴郎說:「請看,上主既使我不能生育,你可去親近我的婢女,或許我能由她得到孩子。」亞巴郎就聽了撒辣依的話。2and she said to Abram, "Now, since Yahweh has kept me from having children, go to my servant; perhaps I shall have a child by her." Abram agreed to what Sarai said.
3亞巴郎住在客納罕地十年後,亞巴郎的妻子撒辣依將自己的埃及婢女哈加爾,給了丈夫亞巴郎做妾。3Abram had been in the land of Canaan ten years when Sarai, his wife, took Hagar, her Egyptian maid, and gave her to Abram her husband as wife.
4亞巴郎自從同哈加爾親近,哈加爾就懷了孕;她見自己懷了孕;就看不起自己的主母。4He went in to Hagar and she became pregnant. When she was aware of this, she began to despise her mistress.
5撒辣依對亞巴郎說:「我受羞辱是你的過錯。我將我的婢女放在你懷裡,她一見自己懷了孕,便看不起我。願上主在我與你之間來判斷!」5Sarai said to Abram, "May this injury done to me be yours. I put my servant in your arms and now that she knows she is pregnant, I count for nothing in her eyes. Let Yahweh judge between me and you."
6亞巴郎對撒辣依說:「你的婢女是在你手中;你看怎樣好,就怎樣待她罷!」於是撒辣依就虐待她,她便由撒辣依面前逃跑了。6Abram said to Sarai, "Your servant is in your power; do with her as you please." Then Sarai treated her so badly that she ran away.
7上主的使者在曠野的水泉旁,即在往叔爾道上的水泉旁,遇見了她,7The angel of Yahweh found her near a spring in the wilderness
8對她說:「撒辣依的婢女哈加爾!你從那裡來,要往那裡去?」她答說:「我由我主母撒辣依那裡逃出來的。」8and said to her, "Hagar, servant of Sarai, where have you come from and where are you going?" She said, "I'm running away from Sarai, my mistress."
9上主的使者對她說:「你要回到你主母那裡,屈服在她手下。」9The angel of Yahweh said to her, "Go back to your mistress and humbly submit yourself to her."
10上主的使者又對她說:「我要使你的後裔繁衍,多得不可勝數。」10The angel of Yahweh said to her, "I will so increase your descendants, that they will be too numerous to be counted."
11上主的使者再對她說:「看,你已懷孕,要生個兒子;要給他起名叫依市瑪耳,因為上主俯聽了你的苦訴。11Then the angel of Yahweh said to her, "Now you are with child and you will have a son, and you shall name him Ishmael, for Yahweh has heard your distress.
12他將來為人,像頭野驢;他要反對眾人,眾人也要反對他;他要衝著自己的眾兄弟支搭帳幕。」12He shall be a wild ass of a man, his hand against everyone and everyone's hand against him, defiant towards all his brothers."
13哈加爾遂給那對她說話的上主起名叫「你是看顧人的天主」,因為她說:「我不是也看見了那看顧人的天主嗎?」13Hagar gave to Yahweh who spoke to her the name of El Roi, for she said: "I have seen the One who sees me."
14為此她給那井起名叫拉海洛依井。這井是在卡德士與貝勒得之間。14That is why this well is called the well of Lahai-roi. It is between Kadesh and Bered.
15哈加爾給亞巴郎生了一個兒子,亞巴郎給哈加爾所生的兒子,起名叫依市瑪耳。15Hagar gave birth to a son and Abram called the child Hagar bore him, Ishmael.
16哈加爾給亞巴郎生依市瑪耳時,亞巴郎已八十六歲。16Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar gave birth to Ishmael.
