Amadodana kaAbrahama kuKetura; ukufa kukaAbrahama

UAbrahama wasebuya wathatha umfazi, lebizo lakhe linguKetura. Wasemzalela uZimrani loJokishani loMedani loMidiyani loIshibaki loShuwa a . UJokishani wasezala uShebha loDedani. Lamadodana kaDedani ayengamaAshuri lamaLetushi lamaLewumi. Njalo amadodana kaMidiyani ayengoEfa loEferi loHanoki loAbida loElidaha. Wonke la ngamadodana kaKetura. UAbrahama wasemupha uIsaka konke ayelakho b . Kodwa kumadodana abafazi abancane uAbrahama ayelabo uAbrahama wawanika izipho; wawasusa kuIsaka indodana yakhe c , esaphila, wawathuma empumalanga elizweni lempumalanga d .

Lalezi zinsuku zeminyaka yempilo kaAbrahama ayiphilayo, iminyaka elikhulu lamatshumi ayisikhombisa lanhlanu. UAbrahama wasephela, wafa eseluphele kuhle emdala enele e , wabuthelwa ezizweni zakibo f . UIsaka loIshmayeli amadodana akhe basebemngcwaba g  obhalwini lweMakaphela, esiqintini sikaEfroni indodana kaZohari umHethi, esiqondene leMamre, 10 isiqinti uAbrahama asithenga ebantwaneni bakaHethi h ; lapho uAbrahama wangcwatshwa loSara umkakhe i .

11 Kwasekusithi emva kokufa kukaAbrahama, uNkulunkulu wambusisa uIsaka indodana yakhe; uIsaka wasehlala emthonjeni iLahayi-Royi j .

Inzalo kaIshmayeli

12 Lalezi yizizukulwana zikaIshmayeli indodana kaAbrahama, uHagari umGibhithekazi, incekukazi kaSara, amzalela uAbrahama k . 13 Lala ngamabizo amadodana kaIshmayeli l  ngamabizo awo njengokuzalwa kwawo; izibulo likaIshmayeli nguNebayothi, loKedari loAdibeli loMibisama 14 loMishima loDuma loMasa, 15 uHadadi loTema, uJeturi, uNafishi loKedema; 16 la ngamadodana kaIshmayeli, njalo la ngamabizo awo ngemizana yawo langemizi yawo, iziphathamandla ezilitshumi lambili m  ngezizwe zawo. 17 Njalo le yiminyaka yempilo kaIshmayeli, iminyaka elikhulu lamatshumi amathathu lesikhombisa; wasephela, wafa, wabuthelwa ebantwini bakibo n . 18 Basebehlala kusukela eHavila o  kusiya eShuri p  ephambi kweGibhithe, ekuhambeni usiya eAsiriya; wahlala
 wahlala: Heb.  wawa.
phambi kobuso babafowabo bonke.

Ukuzalwa kukaEsawu loJakobe

19 Lalezi yizizukulwana zikaIsaka indodana kaAbrahama; uAbrahama wazala uIsaka r . 20 UIsaka wayeseleminyaka engamatshumi amane mhla ethatha uRebeka, indodakazi kaBethuweli s  umSiriya wePadani-Arama t , udadewabo kaLabani u  umSiriya, ukuba ngumkakhe. 21 UIsaka wasemncengela umkakhe e Nkosini, ngoba wayeyinyumba; i Nkosi yasincengeka ngaye v , kwaze kwathi uRebeka umkakhe wathatha isisu. 22 Abantwana babedubana-ke ngaphakathi kwakhe; wasesithi: Uba kunjalo, kungani nginje? Wasesiyabuza w  i Nkosi. 23 I Nkosi yasisithi kuye: Izizwe ezimbili zisesizalweni sakho x , izizwe ezimbili zizakwehlukana emibilini yakho. Njalo esinye isizwe sizakuba lamandla kulesinye isizwe, futhi omkhulu uzakhonza omncinyane y .

24 Kwathi sezigcwalisekile insuku zakhe zokubeletha, khangela-ke, amaphahla esiswini sakhe. 25 Kwasekuphuma owokuqala ebomvana, yena wonke enjengesembatho soboya z ; ngakho bamutha ibizo lakhe bathi nguEsawu. 26 Njalo emva kwalokho kwaphuma umfowabo, lesandla sakhe sibambelele esithendeni sikaEsawu aa ; basebebiza ibizo lakhe uJakobe ab . LoIsaka wayeleminyaka engamatshumi ayisithupha ekuzalweni kwabo. 27 Abafana basebekhula; uEsawu wasesiba ngumzingeli ohlakaniphileyo ac , umuntu weganga; loJakobe umuntu obekekileyo ad  ehlala emathenteni ae . 28 Njalo uIsaka wayemthanda uEsawu ngoba wadla
 wadla: Heb.  inyama yenyamazana yayisemlonyeni wakhe.
inyama yenyamazana ag  yakhe; kodwa uRebeka wathanda uJakobe ah .

29 Kwathi uJakobe esephekile ukudla okuphekiweyo, kwasekufika uEsawu evela egangeni, ekhathele. 30 UEsawu wasesithi kuJakobe: Ake ungivumele ngiginye kokubomvu lokho okubomvu, ngoba ngikhathele. Ngalokhu babiza ibizo lakhe ngokuthi uEdoma
 uEdoma: okuyikuthi,  okubomvu.

31 UJakobe wasesithi: Ngithengisela lamuhla ilungelo lobuzibulo bakho. 32 UEsawu wasesithi: Khangela, sengizakufa; njalo liyini kimi ilungelo lobuzibulo? 33 UJakobe wasesithi: Funga kimi lamuhla. Wasefunga kuye, wathengisa ilungelo lobuzibulo bakhe kuJakobe aj . 34 UJakobe wasenika uEsawu isinkwa lokudla okuphekiweyo kwamalentili*; wasesidla wanatha, wasukuma wahamba; ngalokho uEsawu wadelela ilungelo lobuzibulo bakhe ak .
