Sarah (Abraham’s wife)

 

Pronunciation:  SEHR-uh

Occurrences:  38

First Reference:  Beginnings 24:1

 

Now when Michael had said these things, Emmanuel spoke to him, saying: “My Father, in the land of Shinar, in the city of Babel, there is made to dwell the man Abram and his wife, Sarah.

 

 

See:  Abraham, Hagar, Isaac

 

Summary:  (c. 1,700 BCE) The wife of Abram (later referred to as Abraham) and mother of Isaac, Sarah and Abram lived in the city of Babel until they were eventually driven out by the evil king Nimrod. They came to dwell in the land of Haran (B:26:47-74), then eventually settled in the land of Canaan (B:27:24). The Lord told Abraham that Sarah would conceive and bear a son, but there came one who “was like unto the Son of the Morning” who conversed with Sarah and caused her to doubt the promises of God (B:27:34). Having been convinced by the Fallen One that she was too old to conceive, Sarah persuaded Abraham to take his handmaiden, Hagar, so that she could bear him a child (B:27:33-54).

 

Hagar conceived and had a son whom Abraham named Ishmael. Contentions arose within in the family and both Sarah and Abraham grieved at their folly (B:28:1-4). Thirteen years later, God came to Abraham to re-confirm the promise  — that Sarah would conceive and bear a son, named Isaac, through whom a covenant people would be established (B:28:5-27). Within the year, at ninety years of age, Sarah conceived and gave birth to a son. During the celebration gathering, Sarah sang a hymn of great thanksgiving to the Father and Mother of Heaven (B:29:1-30).

Now Sarah, having despaired because she could not bear Abraham a son, gave him Hagar her handmaiden, according to the custom of her people.

And Hagar took seed and bore Abraham a son, and he called his name Ishmael, and he caused that there should be a great feast prepared to honor the child. And before many witnesses Abraham blessed the child and established that he should be as a prince among many people.

But Sarah wept sorely at her folly, for she feared that Hagar would take place over her in the heart of Abraham, and she began to ridicule with much sharpness the woman Hagar.
