21:8 The child grew and was weaned. Abraham made a great feast on the day that Isaac was weaned.
Vayigdal hayeled vayigamal vaya'as Avraham mishteh gadol beyom higamel et-Yitschak.
21:9 But Sarah saw the son that Hagar had born to Abraham playing.
Vatere Sarah et-ben-Hagar haMitsrit asher-yaldah le-Avraham metsachek.



Commentary:

playing
  (Ibn Ezra; Yov'loth 17:4). Others have 'scoffing' or 'sporting' (Sforno; Rashi). The verse may also be read, 'Sarah saw that the son....was a scoffer' (Hirsch).
