Beerlahai Roi: The Story Behind Our Name
"You are the God who sees me"
Then Sarai said to Abram, "You are responsible for the wrong I am
suffering. I put my servant in your arms, and now that she knows she is
pregnant, she despises me. May the LORD judge between you and me."
"Your servant is in your hands," Abram said. "Do with her whatever you
think best." Then Sarai mistreated Hagar; so she fled from her.
The angel of the LORD found Hagar near a spring in the desert; it was
the spring that is beside the road to Shur. And he said, "Hagar,
servant of Sarai, where have you come from, and where are you going?"
"I'm running away from my mistress Sarai," she answered.
Then the angel of the LORD told her, "Go back to your mistress and
submit to her." The angel added, "I will so increase your descendants
that they will be too numerous to count."
She gave this name to the LORD who spoke to her: "You are the God who
sees me," for she said, "I have now seen the One who sees me." That is
why the well was called Beerlahai Roi; it is still there, between Kadesh
