Raize Guttman 02-12-17 (16 Shevat 5777)

Parsha Lech Lecha - Chapter 16, Verses 11 - 16 The Torah describes Ishmael, the forefather of all the Arab countries. Hagar names the well where the Angel (the one who appeared to me & saw me) as a monument to Hashem. In Verse 15, Avram names Ishmael on his own, so we learn that the name of every child by every parent is done with Ruach HaKodesh (divine inspiration).
