Genesis 16:11-12 (NASB) 11 The angel of the LORD said to her further, “Behold, you are with child, And you will bear a son; And you shall call his name Ishmael, Because the LORD has given heed to your affliction.12 “He will be a wild donkey of a man, His hand will be against everyone, And everyone’s hand will be against him; And he will live to the east of all his brothers.”

There are times when words do little to express the gravity of a situation. The prophecy of Ishmael and his descendants continues to the present day, and it will continue until the second coming of the Lord.
