← Genesis 24   Genesis 26 →

1 And Abraham added, and took a woman, and her name was Keturah.

2 And for him she gave·​·birth·​·to Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuach.

3 And Jokshan begot Sheba and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim,* and Letushim, and Leummim.

4 And the sons of Midian: Ephah, and Epher, and Enoch, and Abida, and Eldaah. All these were the sons of Keturah.

5 And Abraham gave all that he had to Isaac.

6 And to the sons of the concubines that Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts; and he sent· them ·away from being by Isaac his son, when he was still living, eastward to the land of the east.

7 And these are the days of the years of the lives of Abraham which he lived; a hundred years, and seventy years, and five years.

8 And Abraham expired and died with good gray·​·hairs, old and sated of days*, and was gathered to his peoples.

9 And Isaac and Ishmael his sons buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is by the face of Mamre;

10 the field which Abraham bought from the sons of Heth; there was Abraham buried, and Sarah his wife.

11 And it was, after the death of Abraham that God blessed Isaac his son; and Isaac dwelt at Beer-lahai-roi.

12 And these are the births of Ishmael the son of Abraham, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah’s handmaid, gave·​·birth for Abraham.

13 And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according·​·to their births: the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebaioth; and Kedar, and Adhbeel, and Mibsam;

14 and Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa;

15 Chadad, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah;

16 these are they, the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, in their villages and in their castles; twelve chiefs for their peoples.

17 And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, a hundred years, and thirty years, and seven years; and he expired and died, and was gathered to his peoples.

18 And they resided from Havilah even·​·to Shur, who is upon the faces of Egypt, in coming toward Assyria; he settled* against the faces of all his brothers.

19 And these are the births of Isaac, the son of Abraham; Abraham begot Isaac.

20 And Isaac was a son of forty years when he took Rebekah, the daughter of Bethuel the Aramean, of Paddan-aram, the sister of Laban the Aramean, to himself for a woman.

21 And Isaac supplicated to Jehovah on account of his woman, for she was barren, and Jehovah was supplicated for him, and Rebekah his woman conceived.

22 And the sons clashed·​·with·​·each·​·other in the midst·​·of her; and she said, If so, why am I thus? And she went to inquire of Jehovah.

23 And Jehovah said to her, Two nations are in thy belly, and Two peoples shall be separated from thy bowels, and the one people shall prevail above the other people, and the greater shall serve the lesser.

24 And her days were·​·fulfilled to give·​·birth, and behold twins were in her belly.

25 And the first came·​·out all of him ruddy as a mantle of hair, and they called his name Esau.

26 And after that came·​·forth his brother, and his hand seized on Esau’s heel*, and he called his name Jacob*; and Isaac was a son of sixty years when she gave·​·birth to them.

27 And the lads grew·​·up; and Esau was a man knowing hunting, a man of the field; and Jacob was a perfect man, dwelling in tents.

28 And Isaac loved Esau, for his hunting was in his mouth; and Rebekah loved Jacob.

29 And Jacob stewed a stew, and Esau came from the field, and he was faint.

30 And Esau said to Jacob, Let me sup, I pray, of the red, this red, for I am faint; therefore he called his name Edom.

31 And Jacob said, Sell as·​·it·​·were today* thy birthright to me.

32 And Esau said, Behold I am going to die, and for what is this birthright to me?

33 And Jacob said, Promise to me as·​·it·​·were today; and he promised to him, and he sold his birthright to Jacob.

34 And Jacob gave Esau bread and stew of lentils; and he did eat and drink, and rose·​·up and went; and Esau despised the birthright.
