Sample text

Or was she impressed, like her husband, that somehow God spoke to Abram through her?  She must not suspect that her innocent suggestion had been planted in Abram's mind as a test of her ability to manipulate him.  She would have to be more careful. Page 58 9 The yoreh, the first rain of the season, began to fall as they were fording the Jordan River.  She pressed on toward the other side.  They crossed this, too, and set up camp in the broad valley.  They were almost out of grain.  She sighed.

" Abruptly he turned and trudged back along the column.  Sarai was close enough that she had heard everything.  They plodded along at a slow pace, the same speed as the slowest of the flocks.

As they passed, Hagar was struck by the contrast between the slaves' sullen faces and slumped shoulders—and the cheerful demeanor and proud carriage of the servants and slaves of Abram's clan.  She was careful to refill the goatskin at every stream they crossed.  Everyone, that is, except the first watch, who struggled to keep awake through the early hours of the night.  Not only her legs—her back, stomach, sides and shoulders ached.  She tried to do it softly, but Sarai wakened and noticed her discomfort.
