- And Abraham took another wife named Keturah.
- And she bore him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.
- And Jokshan begot Sheba and Dedan;
and the sons of Dedan were the Asshurim, and the Letushim, and the Leummim.
- And the sons of Midian were Ephah, and Epher, and Enoch, and Abida, and Eldaah.
All these were sons of Keturah.
- And Abraham gave all that he had to Isaac.
- And 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.
- And these are the days of the years of Abraham's life which he lived: a hundred and seventy-five years.
- And Abraham expired and died in a good old age, old and full [of days];
and was gathered to his peoples.
- And 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 —
- the field that Abraham had purchased of the sons of Heth: there was Abraham buried, and Sarah his wife.
- And it came to pass after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his son Isaac.
And Isaac dwelt at Beer-lahai-roi.
- And these are the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's bondwoman, bore to Abraham.
- And 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,
- and Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa,
- Hadad and Tema, Jetur, Naphish and Kedmah.
- These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, in their hamlets and their encampments — twelve princes of their peoples.
- And 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.
- And 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.
- And these are the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son.
Abraham begot Isaac.
- And 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.
- And Isaac entreated Jehovah for his wife, because she was barren;
and Jehovah was entreated of him, and Rebecca his wife conceived.
- And the children struggled together within her;
and she said, If [it be] so, why am I thus?
And she went to inquire of Jehovah.
- And 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.
- And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.
- And the first came out red — all over like a hairy garment;
and they called his name Esau.
- And 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.
- And 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.
- And Isaac loved Esau, because venison was to his taste;
and Rebecca loved Jacob.
- And Jacob had cooked a dish;
and Esau came from the field, and he was faint.
- And 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.
- And Jacob said, Sell me now thy birthright.
- And Esau said, Behold, I am going to die, and of what use can the birthright be to me?
- And Jacob said, Swear unto me now.
And he swore unto him, and sold his birthright to Jacob.
- And 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.
