21:18 Go and lift up the boy. Keep your hand strong on him, for I will make of him a great nation.'
Kumi se'i et-hana'ar vehachasiki et-yadech bo ki-legoy gadol asimenu.
21:19 God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water. She went and filled the skin with water, giving the boy some to drink.
Vayifkach Elohim et-eyneyha vatere be'er mayim vatelech vatemale et-hachemet mayim vatashk et-hana'ar.

Keep your hand...
  (Hirsch). Others, 'hold him tight.'
