שִׁשִּׁים הֵמָּה מְלָכוֹת. אַבְרָהָם וְיוֹצְאֵי יְרֵכוֹ. בְּנֵי קְטוּרָה שֵׁשׁ עֶשְׂרֵה, יִשְׁמָעֵאל וּבָנָיו שְׁלשׁ עֶשְׂרֵה, יִצְחָק וּבָנָיו ג', בְּנֵי יַעֲקֹב שְׁנֵים עָשָׂר, בְּנֵי עֵשָׂו ט"ז, בְּדִבְרֵי הַיָּמִים, הֲרֵי שִׁשִּׁים. וְאִם תּאמַר, צֵא מֵהֶם תִּמְנַע שֶׁהִיא אִשָּׁה, אַבְרָהָם מִן הַמִּנְיָן:

There are sixty queens. [Referring to] Avrohom and his descendants. The sons of Keturah are sixteen. Yishmael and his sons are thirteen. Yitzchok and his sons are three. The sons of Yaakov are twelve. The sons of Eisav are sixteen. [All of the above are listed] in Divrei Hayomim14Chapter 1. , and total sixty. And if you should say that Timna15Eisav’s granddaughter. should be excluded because she is a woman, then count Avrohom in the number [of sixty].

וּשְׁמֹנִים פִּילַגְשִׁים. נֹחַ וּבָנָיו עַד אַבְרָהָם. כָּל תּוֹלְדוֹת יוֹצְאֵי הַתֵּבָה שְׁמֹנִים תִּמְצָאֵם. וּכְשֵׁם שֶׁהַמְּלָכוֹת, שֶׁהֵם נְשֵׁי הַמֶּלֶךְ, יְתֵרוֹת בִּגְדֻלָּה עַל הַפִּילַגְשִׁים, כָּךְ הָיוּ אַבְרָהָם וְיוֹצְאֵי יְרֵכוֹ חֲשׁוּבִים גְּדוֹלִים וִיתֵרִים בַּחֲשִׁיבוּת עַל הַכֹּל, כַּאֲשֶׁר תִּרְאֶה. הָגָר בַּת מְלָכִים הָיְתָה, תִּמְנַע בַּת שִׁלְטוֹנִים הָיְתָה, וְנַעֲשֵׂית פִּילֶגֶשׁ לְעֵשָׂו. וְאוֹמֵר "אֶל עֵמֶק שָׁוֵה וגו'" הֻשְׁווּ כֻלָּם בְּעֵצָה אַחַת וְהִמְלִיכוּ אֶת אַבְרָהָם עֲלֵיהֶם:

And eighty concubines. [If you count] Noach and his sons until Avrohom, [i.e.,] all the generations of those who left the Ark, you will find them to be eighty. And just as the queens, who are the kings’ wives, are superior in greatness over the concubines, so were Avrohom and his offspring deemed greater and superior to all, as you will see. Hagar was the daughter of kings. Timna was the daughter of rulers and became Eisav’s concubine, and it states, “to the Valley of Shaveh, etc.”16Bereishis 14:17. [meaning,] they all unanimously resolved הֻשְׁווּ=שָׁוֵה and crowned Avrohom as king over them.
