|Sarah / Sarai’s name means “princess,” was very beautiful, & known for her devout faith & submissiveness to her husband, Abraham.|
Her husband claimed that she was his sister at times, because he feared that others may kill him, out of desire for Sarah. She was unable to conceive a child for many years. Eventually she gave Hagar her hand-maiden to Abraham, in the hope of conceiving a child. Hagar gave birth to Ishmael.
The Lord told Abraham that he and Sarah would have a son. When Sarah first heard this, she laughed thinking that she was too old to have a child. But she did have a child, and he was called Isaac.
