1 Now Abraham took another wife, whose name was Keturah. 2 aShe bore to him Zimran and Jokshan and Medan and Midian and Ishbak and Shuah. 3 Jokshan became the father of Sheba and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim and Letushim and Leummim. 4 The sons of Midian were Ephah and Epher and Hanoch and Abida and Eldaah. All these were the sons of Keturah. 5 aNow Abraham gave all that he had to Isaac; 6 but to the sons of his concubines, Abraham gave gifts while he was still living, and asent them away from his son Isaac eastward, to the land of the east. 7 These are all the years of Abraham's life that he lived, aone hundred and seventy-five years. 8 Abraham breathed his last and died ain a ripe old age, an old man and satisfied with life; and he was bgathered to his people. 9 Then his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in athe cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, facing Mamre, 10 athe field which Abraham purchased from the sons of Heth; there Abraham was buried with Sarah his wife. 11 It came about after the death of Abraham, that aGod blessed his son Isaac; and Isaac lived by bBeer-lahai-roi. 12 Now these are the records of the generations of aIshmael, Abraham's son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's maid, bore to Abraham; 13 and these are the names of athe sons of Ishmael, by their names, in the order of their birth: Nebaioth, the firstborn of Ishmael, and Kedar and Adbeel and Mibsam 14 and Mishma and Dumah and Massa, 15 Hadad and Tema, Jetur, Naphish and Kedemah. 16 These are the sons of Ishmael and these are their names, by their villages, and by their camps; atwelve princes according to their tribes. 17 These are the years of the life of Ishmael, aone hundred and thirty-seven years; and he breathed his last and died, and was bgathered to his people. 18 They settled from aHavilah to bShur which is east of Egypt as one goes toward Assyria; che settled in defiance of all his relatives. 19 Now these are the records of athe generations of Isaac, Abraham's son: Abraham became the father of Isaac; 20 and Isaac was forty years old when he took aRebekah, the bdaughter of Bethuel the Aramean of Paddan-aram, the csister of Laban the Aramean, to be his wife. 21 Isaac prayed to the Lord on behalf of his wife, because she was barren; and athe Lord answered him and Rebekah his wife bconceived. 22 But the children struggled together within her; and she said, "If it is so, why then am I this way?" So she went to ainquire of the Lord. 23 The Lord said to her, "aTwo nations are in your womb; bAnd two peoples will be separated from your body; And one people shall be stronger than the other; And cthe older shall serve the younger." 24 When her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb. 25 Now the first came forth red, aall over like a hairy garment; and they named him Esau. 26 Afterward his brother came forth with ahis hand holding on to Esau's heel, so bhis name was called Jacob; and Isaac was csixty years old when she gave birth to them. 27 When the boys grew up, Esau became a skillful hunter, a man of the field, but Jacob was a peaceful man, aliving in tents. 28 Now Isaac loved Esau, because he had aa taste for game, bbut Rebekah loved Jacob. 29 When Jacob had cooked astew, Esau came in from the field and he was famished; 30 and Esau said to Jacob, "Please let me have a swallow of that red stuff there, for I am famished." Therefore his name was called Edom. 31 But Jacob said, "First sell me your abirthright." 32 Esau said, "Behold, I am about to die; so of what use then is the birthright to me?" 33 And Jacob said, "First swear to me"; so he swore to him, and asold his birthright to Jacob. 34 Then Jacob gave Esau bread and lentil stew; and he ate and drank, and rose and went on his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.
