Genesis 25


Death of Abraham

1[3added 1And 2Abraham] to take a wife whose name was Keturah. 2And she bore to him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah. 3And Jokshan procreated Sheba and Dedan. And sons of Dedan were the Asshurim, and Letushim, and Leummim. 4And the sons of Midian were Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abida, and Eldaah. All these were sons of Keturah. 5[3gave 1And 2Abraham] all his possessions to Isaac his son. 6And to the sons of his concubines Abraham gave gifts. And he sent them from Isaac his son [2still 3living 1while he was] towards the east into the land of the east. 7And these were the years of the days of the life of Abraham, as many as he lived, a hundred seventy-five years. 8And failing, Abraham died in [2old age 1a good], an old man and full of days. And he was added to his people. 9And [4entombed 5him, 1Isaac 2and 3Ishmael] [2two 3sons 1his], in the [2cave 1double], in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is before Mamre; 10the field and the cave which Abraham acquired from the sons of Heth. There they entombed Abraham and Sarah his wife. 11And it came to pass after the dying of Abraham, God blessed Isaac his son. And Isaac dwelt by the Well of the Vision.

Generations of Ishmael

12And these are the origins of Ishmael, the son of Abraham, whom Hagar bore (the Egyptian maidservant of Sarah) to Abraham. 13And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, according to the names of his generations. First-born of Ishmael, Nebajoth, and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam, 14and Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa, 15and Hadar, and Tema, and Jetur, and Naphish, and Kedemah. 16These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are the names of them by their tents, and by their properties -- twelve rulers according to their nation. 17And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, a hundred thirty-seven years; and failing, he died. And he was added to his family. 18And he dwelt from Havilah unto Shur, which is against the face of Egypt, unto coming to Assyrian. By the face of all his brethren he dwelt.

Generations of Isaac

19And these are the generations of Isaac the son of Abraham. 20Abraham procreated Isaac. [3was 1And 2Isaac 5years old 4forty] when he took Rebekah daughter of Bethuel the Syrian to himself for wife. 21[3beseeched 1And 2Isaac] the  lord concerning Rebekah his wife, for she was sterile; [4listened 1and 2his 3God], and [3conceived 4in 5the womb 1Rebekah 2his wife]. 22[4leaped 1And 2the 3male babies] in her. And she said, If thus [3to me 1is about 2to happen], why [2to me 1is this]? And she went to inquire of the  lord. 23And the  lord said to her, Two nations [2in 3your womb 1are]; and two peoples from out of your belly will draw apart. And one people [2another people 1will be superior over]; and the greater will be a servant to the lesser. 24And were fulfilled the days for her to bear. And thus there were twins in her belly. 25And came forth the first-born fiery red entirely, and of [2skin 1hairy]. And she named his name Esau. 26And after this came forth his brother, and his hand took hold of the heel of Esau. And she called his name Jacob. And Isaac was [2years old 1sixty] when [2bore 3them 1Rebekah]. 27[4grew 1And 2the 3young]. And Esau was a man knowing to hunt with hounds -- rugged; but Jacob [2man 1was a simple] living in a residence. 28[3loved 1But 2Isaac] Esau, for his hunting food for him. But Rebekah loved Jacob.

Esau Sells the Right of the First-born

29[3boiled 1And 2Jacob] stew; [3came 1and 2Esau] from out of the plains -- failing. 30And Esau said to Jacob, Let me taste from [2stew 1this spicy] for I fail; on account of this [2was called 1his name] Edom. 31[3said 1And 2Jacob] to Esau, Give to me today your rights as first-born. 32And Esau said, Behold, I am going to come to an end, and what to me are these, the rights of the first-born? 33And [2said 3to him 1Jacob], You swear by an oath to me today! And he swore by an oath to him. [3gave 1And 2Esau] the rights of the first-born to Jacob. 34And Jacob gave to Esau bread and stew of lentils. And he ate and drank, and rising up he set out. And Esau treated as worthless the rights of the first-born.
