The promise of being the father of a great nation Gen 21:13 was made to Ishmael also

Thank you Mrs. Duarte. The Scripture says “And I will make a nation of the son of the slave woman also, because he is your offspring” (Gen 21:13) but doesn’t say “a great nation” but even so, there was a promise also to Ishmael.

Genesis 17:20 “I will make him a great nation.” Also, Hagar was no longer a slave. Abraham married her. She was his wife.

Thank you Lone. Hagar was not a slave…but she was a handmaid or servant. So, yes, she was not a slave but a servant. I don’t see where Abraham married her though and “I will make a great nation” spoke of Abraham and not Hagar, as it was through “him” or Abraham, so the verse you quoted is about Abraham and Sarah and not about Abraham and Hagar. Please read the entire chapter and you will see that. Genesis 16:3 says “And Sarai Abram’s wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband” but it doesn’t mention marriage because Abraham was already married to Sarah.
