NET © Notes

tn The particle הִנֵּה (hinneh) focuses on her immediate situation: “Here you are pregnant.”

tn The active participle refers here to something that is about to happen.

sn The name Ishmael consists of the imperfect or jussive form of the Hebrew verb with the theophoric element added as the subject. It means “God hears” or “may God hear.”

tn Heb “affliction,” which must refer here to Hagar’s painful groans of anguish.

sn This clause gives the explanation of the name Ishmael, using a wordplay. Ishmael’s name will be a reminder that “God hears” Hagar’s painful cries.
