And Abraham took another wife, and her name was Keturah.NoneAnd she bore him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.NoneAnd Jokshan begot Sheba, and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim, and Letushim, and Leummim.NoneAnd the sons of Midian: Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abida, and Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah.NoneAnd Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac.NoneBut unto the sons of the concubines, that Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts; and he sent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto the east country.NoneAnd these are the days of the years of Abraham’s life which he lived, a hundred threescore and fifteen years.NoneAnd Abraham expired, and died in a good old age, an old man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people.NoneAnd 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 before Mamre;Nonethe field which Abraham purchased of the children of Heth; there was Abraham buried, and Sarah his wife.NoneAnd it came to pass after the death of Abraham, that God blessed Isaac his son; and Isaac dwelt by Beer-lahai-roi.NoneNow these are the generations of Ishmael, Abraham’s son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah’s handmaid, bore unto Abraham.NoneAnd these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: the first-born of Ishmael, Nebaioth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,Noneand Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa;NoneHadad, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedem;Nonethese are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their villages, and by their encampments; twelve princes according to their nations.NoneAnd these are the years of the life of Ishmael, a hundred and thirty and seven years; and he expired and died; and was gathered unto his people.NoneAnd they dwelt from Havilah unto Shur that is before Egypt, as thou goest toward Asshur: over against all his brethren he did settle.NoneAnd these are the generations of Isaac, Abraham’s son: Abraham begot Isaac.NoneAnd Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah, the daughter of Bethuel the Aramean, of Paddan-aram, the sister of Laban the Aramean, to be his wife.NoneAnd Isaac entreated the LORD for his wife, because she was barren; and the LORD let Himself be entreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.NoneAnd the children struggled together within her; and she said: ‘If it be so, wherefore do I live?’ And she went to inquire of the LORD.NoneAnd the LORD said unto her: Two nations are in thy womb, And two peoples shall be separated from thy bowels; And the one people shall be stronger than the other people; And the elder shall serve the younger.NoneAnd when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.NoneAnd the first came forth ruddy, all over like a hairy mantle; and they called his name Esau.NoneAnd after that came forth his brother, and his hand had hold on Esau’s heel; and his name was called Jacob. And Isaac was threescore years old when she bore them.NoneAnd the boys grew; and Esau was a cunning hunter, a man of the field; and Jacob was a quiet man, dwelling in tents.NoneNow Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of his venison; and Rebekah loved Jacob.NoneAnd Jacob sod pottage; and Esau came in from the field, and he was faint.NoneAnd Esau said to Jacob: ‘Let me swallow, I pray thee, some of this red, red pottage; for I am faint.’ Therefore was his name called Edom.NoneAnd Jacob said: ‘Sell me first thy birth right.’NoneAnd Esau said: ‘Behold, I am at the point to die; and what profit shall the birthright do to me?’NoneAnd Jacob said: ‘Swear to me first’; and he swore unto him; and he sold his birthright unto Jacob.NoneAnd Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentils; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way. So Esau despised his birthright.None
