Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 21:19

_ _ God opened her eyes — Had she forgotten the promise (Genesis 16:11)? Whether she looked to God or not, He regarded her and directed her to a fountain close beside her, but probably hid amid brushwood, by the waters of which her almost expiring son was revived.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Genesis 21:14-21.
