Messengers of the Lord or Messengers of God, is there a difference?
In the story of Hagar, she ran away from Saria twice. The first time in Genesis 16, the messenger, (angel), of the Lord told her to return under Saria’s rule.
She would have a child and call him Ismael, (God Hears) because God heard her destress, who would have many descendants and be a great ruler. (Genesisn16:7-11)
The second time Ishmael was about 13, Issac had been born. The messenger of God heard the boys cries.
Abraham had sent Hagar and the boy away. When God had heard his cry, he told Hagar, Ishmael would be a great nation, the boy became a great archer and his mother found him a wife. (Genesis 21)
She and the boy were freed from Sarah.
