- Hagar, in the Old Testament, was the concubine
of the patriarch Abraham and mother of Ishmael. Hagar was the handmaid
of Abraham's wife, Sarah, who, because she was barren, gave Hagar to her
husband in the hope of producing heirs. When Hagar conceived a child, however,
Sarah became jealous and regretted her decision. To escape Sarah's persecution,
Hagar was forced to flee into the desert. Reassured by an angel, she returned
to bear Abraham a son, Ishmael. Eventually Sarah conceived and bore a child,
who was named Isaac. After Isaac's birth, Sarah persuaded Abraham to drive
Ishmael and his mother away. They wandered into the desert, where an angel
appeared to them and prophesied greatness for Ishmael.
