She said to Abraham, "Cast out that slavewoman and her son, for the son of that slave shall not share in the inheritance with my son Isaac."
The matter distressed Abraham greatly, for it concerned a son of his.
But God said to Abraham, "Do not be distressed over the boy or your slave; whatever Sarah tells you, do as she says, for it is through Isaac that offspring shall be continued for you.
As for the son of the slave-woman, I will make a nation of him, too, for he is your seed."
