Genesis 16:10 - 15

ESV - 10 The angel of the Lord also said to her, "I will surely multiply your offspring so that they cannot be numbered for multitude. 11 And the angel of the Lord said to her, "Behold, you are pregnant and shall bear a son. You shall call his name Ishmael, because the Lord has listened to your affliction.
