  Isaac Abrabanel - LoveToKnow 1911
ISAAC ABRABANEL, called also Abravanel, Abarbanel (1437-1508), Jewish statesman, philosopher, theologian and commentator, was born at Lisbon of an ancient family which claimed descent from the royal house of David.
On the death of Alphonso in 1481, his counsellors and favourites were harshly treated by his successor John, and Abrabanel was compelled to flee to Spain, where he held for eight years (1484-1492) the post of a minister of state under Ferdinand and Isabella.
He was one of the first to see that for Biblical exegesis it was necessary to reconstruct the social environment of olden times, and he skilfully applied his practical knowledge of statecraft to the elucidation of the books of Samuel and Kings.

Abrabanel was unaware that the book of Isaiah was probably, at least, two prophetic books combined, the first part of the book from the pre-exilic period of the kings while the second portion of the book, where these verses are found, was probably composed during the period of the return from Babylonian exile.

 Lech Lecha 5763 - Rabbi Menashe Bleiweiss
For Abrabanel, these words are mainly positive and all part of the angel's ongoing argument that Hagar should go home.
Those seem fairly pretentious words, especially given that she has experienced no prophetic reverie at all, and seems to have been in contact with a mere messenger and not the Almighty Himself.
In truth, Abrabanel explains, any Divine communication - from the transcendent prophesies of Moshe Rabeinu to the remarkably bland voice that speaks to Hagar - ultimately comes from Hashem through His own will.
