Genesis 21:9-10
And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto Abraham, mocking. Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her son.... (KJV)

But Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, when she had borne to Abraham, playing with her son Isaac. So she said to Abraham, "Cast out this slave woman and her son...." (NRSV)

What did Sarah see that disturbed her so much?

Jonathan Kirsch suggests in The Harlot by the Side of the Road that the "play" between Isaac and Ishmael may have been of a sexual nature, noting that the same word is used to describe the behaviour of Ishmael and Isaac as is used in Gen.26:8 to describe Isaac's fondling of Rebekah.
