SEV Biblia, Chapter 21:9 Â¶ Y vio Sara al hijo de Agar la egipcia, el cual ésta le había dado a luz a Abraham, que se burlaba.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 21:9 Verse 9. Mocking.] What was implied in this mocking is not known. St. Paul, Gal. iv. 29, calls it persecuting; but it is likely he meant no more than some species of ridicule used by Ishmael on the occasion, and probably with respect to the age of Sarah at Isaac's birth, and her previous barrenness. Jonathan ben Uzziel and the Jerusalem Targum represent Ishmael as performing some idolatrous rite on the occasion, and that this had given the offense to Sarah. Conjectures are as useless as they are endless. Whatever it was, it became the occasion of the expulsion of himself and mother. Several authors are of opinion that the Egyptian bondage of four hundred years, mentioned chap. xv. 13, commenced with this persecution of the righteous seed by the son of an Egyptian woman.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 9-13 - Let us not overlook the manner in which this family matter instructs u not to rest in outward privileges, or in our own doings. And let u seek the blessings of the new covenant by faith in its Divine Surety Ishmael's conduct was persecution, being done in profane contempt of the covenant and promise, and with malice against Isaac. God take notice of what children say and do in their play; and will reckon with them, if they say or do amiss, though their parents do not. Mocking in a great sin, and very provoking to God. And the children of promis must expect to be mocked. Abraham was grieved that Ishmael shoul misbehave, and Sarah demand so severe a punishment. But God showed his that Isaac must be the father of the promised Seed; therefore, sen Ishmael away, lest he corrupt the manners, or try to take the rights of Isaac. The covenant seed of Abraham must be a people by themselves, no mingled with those who were out of covenant: Sarah little thought of this; but God turned aright what she said.
