SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:7 ¬∂ Y la hallů el Šngel del SE—OR junto a una fuente de agua en el desierto, junto a la fuente que estŠ en el camino del Sur.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 16:7 Verse 7. The angel of the Lord] That Jesus Christ, in a body suited to the dignity of his nature, frequently appeared to the patriarchs, has been already intimated. That the person mentioned here was greater than any created being is sufficiently evident from the following particulars:-
1. From his promising to perform what God alone could do, and foretelling what God alone could know; ""I will multiply thy seed exceedingly,"" &c., ver. 10; ""Thou art with child, and shalt bear a son,"" &c., ver. 11; ""He will be a wild man,"" &c., ver. 12. All this shows a prescience which is proper to God alone.
2. Hagar considers the person who spoke to her as God, calls him la El, and addresses him in the way of worship, which, had he been a created angel, he would have refused. See Revelation xix. 10; xxii. 9.
3. Moses, who relates the transaction, calls this angel expressly JEHOVAH; for, says he, she called hwhy Ķć shem Yehovah, the NAME of the LORD that spake to her, ver. 13. Now this is a name never given to any created being.
4. This person, who is here called hwyh Żalm malach Yehovah, the Angel of the Lord, is the same who is called lagh Żalmh hammalach haggoel, the redeeming Angel or the Angel the Redeemer, chap. xlviii. 16; wynp Żalm malach panaiv, the Angel of God's presence, Isa. lxiii. 9; and tyrbh Żalm malach habberith, the Angel of the Covenant, Mal. iii. 1; and is the same person which the Septuagint, Isa. ix. 6, term megalhs boulhs aggelos, the Angel of the Great Counsel or Design, viz., of redeeming man, and filling the earth with righteousness.
5. These things cannot be spoken of any human or created being, for the knowledge, works, &c., attributed to this person are such as belong to God; and as in all these cases there is a most evident personal appearance, Jesus Christ alone can be meant; for of God the Father it has been ever true that no man hath at any time seen his shape, nor has he ever limited himself to any definable personal appearance.
In the way to Shur.] As this was the road from Hebron to Egypt, it is probable she was now returning to her own country.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 7-16 - Hagar was out of her place, and out of the way of her duty, and goin further astray, when the Angel found her. It is a great mercy to be stopped in a sinful way, either by conscience or by providence. Whenc comest thou? Consider that thou art running from duty, and the privileges thou wast blest with in Abram's tent. It is good to live in a religious family, which those ought to consider who have thi advantage. Whither wilt thou go? Thou art running into sin; if Haga return to Egypt, she will return to idol gods, and into danger in the wilderness through which she must travel. Recollecting who we are would often teach us our duty. Inquiring whence we came, would show u our sin and folly. Considering whither we shall go, discovers ou danger and misery. And those who leave their space and duty, mus hasten their return, how mortifying soever it be. The declaration of the Angel, "I will," shows this Angel was the eternal Word and Son of God. Hagar could not but admire the Lord's mercy, and feel, Have I, wh am so unworthy, been favoured with a gracious visit from the Lord? Sh was brought to a better temper, returned, and by her behaviour softene Sarai, and received more gentle treatment. Would that we were alway suitably impressed with this thought, Thou God seest me __________________________________________________________________
