|Gen 25:1 Now Abraham took another wife, whose name was Keturah.
|Gen 25:2 She bore to him Zimran and Jokshan and Medan and Midian and Ishbak and Shuah.
|Gen 25:3 Jokshan became the father of Sheba and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim and Letushim and Leummim.
|Gen 25:4 The sons of Midian were Ephah and Epher and Hanoch and Abida and Eldaah. All these were the sons of Keturah.
|Gen 25:5 Now Abraham gave all that he had to Isaac;
|Gen 25:6 but to the sons of his concubines, Abraham gave gifts while he was still living, and sent them away from his son Isaac eastward, to the land of the east.
|Gen 25:7 ¶ These are all the years of Abraham's life that he lived, one hundred and seventy-five years.
|Gen 25:8 Abraham breathed his last and died in a ripe old age, an old man and satisfied with life; and he was gathered to his people.
|Gen 25:9 Then his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, facing Mamre,
|Gen 25:10 the field which Abraham purchased from the sons of Heth; there Abraham was buried with Sarah his wife.
|Gen 25:11 It came about after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his son Isaac; and Isaac lived by Beer-lahai-roi.
|Gen 25:12 ¶ Now these are the records of the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's maid, bore to Abraham;
|Gen 25:13 and these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, in the order of their birth: Nebaioth, the firstborn of Ishmael, and Kedar and Adbeel and Mibsam
|Gen 25:14 and Mishma and Dumah and Massa,
|Gen 25:15 Hadad and Tema, Jetur, Naphish and Kedemah.
|Gen 25:16 These are the sons of Ishmael and these are their names, by their villages, and by their camps; twelve princes according to their tribes.
|Gen 25:17 These are the years of the life of Ishmael, one hundred and thirty-seven years; and he breathed his last and died, and was gathered to his people.
|Gen 25:18 They settled from Havilah to Shur which is east of Egypt as one goes toward Assyria; he settled in defiance of all his relatives.
|Gen 25:19 ¶ Now these are the records of the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son: Abraham became the father of Isaac;
|Gen 25:20 and 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.
|Gen 25:21 Isaac prayed to the LORD on behalf of his wife, because she was barren; and the LORD answered him and Rebekah his wife conceived.
|Gen 25:22 But the children struggled together within her; and she said, "If it is so, why then am I this way?" So she went to inquire of the LORD.
|Gen 25:23 The LORD said to her,
"Two nations are in your womb;
And two peoples will be separated from your body;
And one people shall be stronger than the other;
And the older shall serve the younger."
|Gen 25:24 When her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.
|Gen 25:25 Now the first came forth red, all over like a hairy garment; and they named him Esau.
|Gen 25:26 Afterward his brother came forth with his hand holding on to Esau's heel, so his name was called Jacob; and Isaac was sixty years old when she gave birth to them.
|Gen 25:27 ¶ When the boys grew up, Esau became a skillful hunter, a man of the field, but Jacob was a peaceful man, living in tents.
|Gen 25:28 Now Isaac loved Esau, because he had a taste for game, but Rebekah loved Jacob.
|Gen 25:29 When Jacob had cooked stew, Esau came in from the field and he was famished;
|Gen 25:30 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.
|Gen 25:31 But Jacob said, "First sell me your birthright."
|Gen 25:32 Esau said, "Behold, I am about to die; so of what use then is the birthright to me?"
|Gen 25:33 And Jacob said, "First swear to me"; so he swore to him, and sold his birthright to Jacob.
|Gen 25:34 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.
