What is the significance of the fact that Hagar took for Yishmael a wife from Egypt?


Rashi: Everything returns to its source - as Hagar grew up in Egypt. 1


Targum Yonasan explains that she first took him a wife called Adisa (who some say was from Mo'av [see also Chizkuni]), and when he divorced her, she found him an Egyptian wife called Fatima.


רש"י: מארץ מצרים- ממקום גדוליה: לשם מה הוסיף רש"י שהיה זה ממקום גידוליה?


גור אריה: קשה מאי נפקא מינה שלקחה לו אשה ממצרים? אלא ללמדך שכל דבר הולך אחר עיקרו ויסודו.
