Genesis 16 General Notes

Structure and formatting

Some translations indent each line of poetry to make it easier to read. The ULB does this with the poetry in 16:11-12.

Special concepts in this chapter

Plural marriage

Abram married Hagar while he was also married to Sarai. Even though Abram had his wife’s permission, this was an immoral and sinful action. It also showed a lack of faith in God. Sarai quickly became jealous of Hagar. (See: rc://en/tw/dict/bible/kt/sin, rc://en/tw/dict/bible/kt/faith, rc://en/tw/dict/bible/kt/jealous and rc://en/ta/man/translate/figs-explicit)
