In response to my quoting of Prof. Heard’s book, “In four of the remaining 
six cases, the sense is one of assistance, and ‘hand’ is the object of ‘
strengthen’ or ‘hold’ (the pi(el or hip(il of hazaq, as in Gen 21:8….”, you 
“Not found in Genesis 21:8.”
That’s a typo in the book that unfortunately I did not catch.  The correct 
cite is Genesis 21: 18.
Now that we have the right citation, how would you compare Genesis 16: 12 
to Genesis 21: 18?
