Hagar was the Egyptian "handmaid" of Abraham's wife Sarah. When Sarah found herself not having children (she later had Isaac), she arranged to have a child through Hagar - a plan that before long produced extreme resentment between the two women. Hagar fled into the wilderness with her unborn child, Ishmael, apparently toward Egypt, but the Lord met her in the desert and told her to return to Abraham. The place where the Lord appeared to her was at a well that was thereafter named Beerlahairoi, which means well of the Living One who sees me, or well of the visible God.

Tel Be'er Sheva is a National park, featuring the ruins of an Israelite Kingdom fortified administrative city. The ancient city is located between the Be'er Sheva and Hebron streams. The Bible associated the acts of Abraham and Isaac to the name of the city, which reads in Hebrew as the "Well of the oath", or "seven wells". (https://biblewalks.com/Sites/TelBeerSheba.html)
