 16:4
16:3 After Abram had lived in Canaan for ten years, his wife Sarai took Hagar the Egyptian her slave, and gave her to her husband Abram as a wife.
Vatikach Saray eshet Avram et-Hagar haMitsrit shifchatah mikets eser shanim leshevet Avram be'erets Kena'an vatiten otah le-Avram ishah lo le'ishah.
16:4 [Abram] came to her, and she conceived. When she realized that she was pregnant, she looked at her mistress with contempt.
Vayavo el-Hagar vatahar vatere ki haratah vatekal gevirtah be'eyneyha.
