ABSTRACT
this article addresses the presentation of Hagar as šipḥâ, 'Išša, and 'āma in Gen 16:1-16 and 21:9-21 .1 argue that these episodes contain three original stories that are complete, coherent, and independent of one another. Informed by ancient Near Eastern customs, each story contains its own depictions of Hagar, her relationship to Abraham and Sarah, and the legal status of her son. After the collation o f the three original stories, the precision of each story is lost and Hagar emerges as a multidimensional figure.
