Abraham’s Death

1Now Abraham took another wife
Lit and her name
whose name was Keturah.
2 b  She bore to him Zimran and Jokshan and Medan and Midian and Ishbak and Shuah. 3Jokshan
Lit begot
became the father of Sheba and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim and Letushim and Leummim.
4The sons of Midian were Ephah and Epher and Hanoch and Abida and Eldaah. All these were the sons of Keturah. 5 d  Now Abraham gave all that he had to Isaac; 6but to the sons of
Lit concubines which belonged to Abraham
his concubines, Abraham gave gifts while he was still living, and f  sent them away from his son Isaac eastward, to the land of the east.

7These are
Lit the days of
all the years of Abraham’s life that he lived h  one hundred and seventy-five years.
8Abraham breathed his last and died i  in a
Lit good
ripe old age, an old man and satisfied with life; and he was k  gathered to his people.
9Then his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in l  the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, facing Mamre, 10 m  the field which Abraham purchased from the sons of Heth; there Abraham was buried with Sarah his wife. 11It came about after the death of Abraham, that n  God blessed his son Isaac; and Isaac
Lit dwelt
lived by p  Beer-lahai-roi.

Descendants of Ishmael

12Now these are the records of the generations of q  Ishmael, Abraham’s son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah’s maid, bore to Abraham; 13and these are the names of r  the sons of Ishmael, by their names
Lit in regard to their generations
in the order of their birth: Nebaioth, the firstborn of Ishmael, and Kedar and Adbeel and Mibsam
14and Mishma and Dumah and Massa, 15Hadad and Tema, Jetur, Naphish and Kedemah. 16These are the sons of Ishmael and these are their names, by their villages, and by their camps; t  twelve princes according to their
Or peoples
17These are the years of the life of Ishmael v  one hundred and thirty-seven years; and he breathed his last and died, and was w  gathered to his people. 18They
Lit dwelt
settled from y  Havilah to z  Shur which is
Lit before
east of Egypt
Lit as you go
as one goes toward Assyria; ac  he
Lit fell over against
settled in defiance of all his
Lit brothers

Isaac’s Sons

19Now these are the records of af  the generations of Isaac, Abraham’s son: Abraham
Lit begot
became the father of Isaac;
20and Isaac was forty years old when he took ah  Rebekah, the ai  daughter of Bethuel the
I.e. Syrian
Aramean of Paddan-aram, the ak  sister of Laban the
I.e. Syrian
Aramean, to be his wife.
21Isaac prayed to the  Lord on behalf of his wife, because she was barren; and am  the  Lord
Lit was entreated of him
answered him and Rebekah his wife ao  conceived.
22But the children struggled together within her; and she said, “If it is so, why then am I this way?” So she went to ap  inquire of the  Lord. 23The  Lord said to her, aq  Two nations are in your womb;
ar  And two peoples will be separated from your body;
And one people shall be stronger than the other;
And as  the older shall serve the younger.”

24When her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb. 25Now the first came forth red at  all over like a hairy garment; and they named him Esau. 26Afterward his brother came forth with au  his hand holding on to Esau’s heel, so av  his name was called
I.e. one who takes by the heel or supplants
Jacob; and Isaac was ax  sixty years old when she gave birth to them.

27When the boys grew up, Esau became a skillful hunter, a man of the field, but Jacob was a
Lit complete
peaceful man
Lit dwelling
ba  living in tents.
28Now Isaac loved Esau, because
Lit game was in his mouth
he had bc  a taste for game bd  but Rebekah loved Jacob.
29When Jacob had cooked be  stew, Esau came in from the field and he was
Lit weary
30and Esau said to Jacob, “Please let me have a swallow of
Lit the red, this red
that red stuff there, for I am
Lit weary
famished.” Therefore his name was called
I.e. red
31But Jacob said
Lit Today
First sell me your bk  birthright.”
32Esau said, “Behold, I am about to die; so of what use then is the birthright to me?” 33And Jacob said
Lit Today
First swear to me”; so he swore to him, and bm  sold his birthright to Jacob.
34Then Jacob gave Esau bread and lentil stew; and he ate and drank, and rose and went on his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.
