Abraham and Keturah
1And Abraham took another wife named Keturah.
2And she bore him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.
3And Jokshan begot Sheba and Dedan; and the sons of Dedan were the Asshurim, and the Letushim, and the Leummim.
4And the sons of Midian were Ephah, and Epher, and Enoch, and Abida, and Eldaah. All these were sons of Keturah.
5And Abraham gave all that he had to Isaac.
6And to the sons of the concubines that Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts, and, while he yet lived, sent them away from Isaac his son, eastward to the east country.
The Death of Abraham
(1 Chronicles 1:28-33)
7And these are the days of the years of Abraham's life which he lived: a hundred and seventy-five years.
8And Abraham expired and died in a good old age, old and full of days; and was gathered to his peoples.
9And his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which was opposite to Mamre —
10the field that Abraham had purchased of the sons of Heth: there was Abraham buried, and Sarah his wife.
11And it came to pass after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his son Isaac. And Isaac dwelt at Beer-lahai-roi.
The Descendants of Ishmael
12And these are the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's bondwoman, bore to Abraham.
13And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael by their names according to their generations: Nebaioth, the firstborn of Ishmael; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,
14and Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa,
15Hadad and Tema, Jetur, Naphish and Kedmah.
16These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, in their hamlets and their encampments twelve princes of their peoples.
17And these are the years of the life of Ishmael: a hundred and thirty-seven years; and he expired and died, and was gathered to his peoples.
18And they dwelt from Havilah to Shur, which is opposite to Egypt, as one goes towards Assyria. He settled before the face of all his brethren.
Jacob and Esau
(Malachi 1:1-5; Romans 9:6-18)
19And these are the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son. Abraham begot Isaac.
20And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebecca as wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padan-Aram, the sister of Laban the Syrian.
21And Isaac entreated Jehovah for his wife, because she was barren; and Jehovah was entreated of him, and Rebecca his wife conceived.
22And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to inquire of Jehovah.
23And Jehovah said to her, Two nations are in thy womb, And two peoples shall be separated from thy bowels; And one people shall be stronger than the other people, And the elder shall serve the younger.
24And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.
25And the first came out red all over like a hairy garment; and they called his name Esau.
26And after that came his brother out; and his hand took hold of Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob. And Isaac was sixty years old when they were born.
27And the boys grew, and Esau became a man skilled in hunting, a man of the field; and Jacob was a homely man, dwelling in tents.
28And Isaac loved Esau, because venison was to his taste; and Rebecca loved Jacob.
Esau Sells his Birthright
29And Jacob had cooked a dish; and Esau came from the field, and he was faint.
30And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with the red the red thing there, for I am faint. Therefore was his name called Edom.
31And Jacob said, Sell me now thy birthright.
32And Esau said, Behold, I am going to die, and of what use can the birthright be to me?
33And Jacob said, Swear unto me now. And he swore unto him, and sold his birthright to Jacob.
34And Jacob gave Esau bread and the dish of lentils; and he ate and drank, and rose up and went away. Thus Esau despised the birthright.
