Genesis 17:20

Genesis 17:20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.

God does something nice for Ishmael, even though what Abraham said about his made no sense. On the downside, though, Ishmael’s nation is going to have twelve princes, which means that when he dies it will have twelve kings. This could be a problem down the road.
