Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 16:13

_ _ called the name — common in ancient times to name places from circumstances; and the name given to this well was a grateful recognition of God’s gracious appearance in the hour of Hagar’s distress.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 16:10-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 16:13

And she called the name of the Lord that spake unto her — That is, thus she made confession of his name, Thou God seest me — This should be with her, his name for ever, and this his memorial, by which she will know him, and remember him while she lives, Thou God seest me. Thou seest my sorrow and affliction. This Hagar especially refers to: when we have brought ourselves into distress by our own folly, yet God has not forsaken us. Thou seest the sincerity of my repentance. Thou seest me, if in any instance I depart from thee. This thought should always restrain us from sin, and excite us to duty, Thou God seest me. Have I here also looked after him that seeth me? — Probably she knew not who it was that talked with her till he was departing, and then looking after him, with a reflexion like that of the two disciples, Luke 24:31-32. Here also — Not only in Abram's tent, and at his altar, but here also, in this wilderness: here, where I never expected it, where I was out of the way of my duty?

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Genesis 16:13

And she called the name of the LORD that spake unto her, Thou God seest me: for she said, (g) Have I also here looked after him that seeth me?

(g) She rebukes her own dullness and acknowledges God's graces, who was present with her everywhere.
