Genesis 21:14

And Father-of-Tumult is shouldering-up in the dawn, and is taking a bread, and hot727 dual-water, and he is giving toward Hagar a name upon her shoulder, and אֶת-the Born-one,728 and is sending her forth, and she is walking and she is wandering/straying aside in the word-wilderness of Well of Seven.729



Strong’s #2573, chemeth. From the word chamam (#2552) to be warm/hot. Rather than construct the word from "wall" i.e. skin and so create dual-waterskin, which makes no sense, we find the word constructed from warm/hot. Recall the note on word-family Ham (Cham) to which this word belongs See note on Genesis 10:1.
