1 The next year Yishma’ĕl came to my camp and when he had kissed me and we had eaten together, he said unto me, My father, according to thine instructions I did give unto my wife Meriḇah a bill of divorcement and sent her back to the home of her father in shame.

2 Now, therefore, I come unto thee to seek thy counsel concerning obtaining another in her place.

3 Now, it pleased me that my son Yishma’ĕl had come to me regarding choosing a wife.

4 Therefore, I sought among the women of my camp and found two who were desirous of being wife to Yishma’ĕl, even Zola, the daughter of my wife Peleliah and Naiomi, the daughter Kemu’ĕl, the son of Kish, who had been among the believers who met in the room of my mother in the city of Ur.

5 And I was pleased to give them unto my son Yishma’ĕl because he had come to me for counsel and because he had begun to magnify his kehunnah for he did worship 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Elohim and sought to overcome his weaknesses.

6 And Yishma’ĕl and his family dwelt with me a long time in Gerar and after that, when I moved my camp to Be’ĕrsheḇa, which is by Ḥeḇron.
