1And Abraham again took a wife, whose name was Keturah.
2And she bore to him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.
3And Jokshan begot Sheba and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were the Asshurim and the Letushim, and Leummim.
4And the sons of Midian were Ephah and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abida, and Eldaah; all these were sons of Keturah.
5But Abraham gave all his possessions to Isaac his son.
6But to the sons of his concubines Abraham gave gifts, and he sent them away from his son Isaac, while he was yet living, to the east into the country of the east.
7And these were the years of the days of the life of Abraham as many as he lived, a hundred and seventy-five years.
8And Abraham failing died in a good old age, an old man and full of days, and was added to his people.
9And Isaac and Ishmael his sons buried him in the double cave, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is over against Mamre:
10even the field and the cave which Abraham bought of the sons of Heth; there they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife.
11And it came to pass after Abraham was dead, that God blessed Isaac his son, and Isaac dwelt by the well of the vision.
12And these are the generations of Ishmael the son of Abraham, whom Hagar the Egyptian the handmaid of Sarah bore to Abraham.
13And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, according to the names of their generations. The firstborn of Ishmael, Nebaioth, and Kedar, and Abdeel, and Mibsam,
14and Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa,
15and Hadad, and Tema, and Jetur, and Naphish, and Kedemah.
16These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names in their tents and in their dwellings, twelve princes according to their nations.
17And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, a hundred and thirty-seven years; and he failed and died, and was added to his fathers.
18And he dwelt from Havilah to Shur, which is opposite Egypt, until one comes to the Assyrians; he dwelt in the presence of all his brethren.

19And these are the generations of Isaac the son of Abraham.
20Abraham begot Isaac. And Isaac was forty years old when he took to wife Rebekah, daughter of Bethuel the Syrian, out of Syrian Mesopotamia, sister of Laban the Syrian.
21And Isaac prayed the Lord concerning Rebekah his wife, because she was barren; and the Lord heard him, and his wife Rebekah conceived in her womb.
22And the babes leaped within her; and she said, If it will be so with me, why is this to me? And she went to inquire of the Lord.
23And the Lord said to her, There are two nations in thy womb, And two peoples shall be separated from thy belly, And one people shall excel the other, And the elder shall serve the younger.
24And the days were fulfilled that she should be delivered, and she had twins in her womb.
25And the first came out red, hairy all over like a skin; and she called 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 sixty years old when Rebekah bore them.
27And the lads grew, and Esau was a man skilled in hunting, dwelling in the country, and Jacob a simple man, dwelling in a house.
28And Isaac loved Esau, because his venison was his food, but Rebekah loved Jacob.
29And Jacob cooked pottage, and Esau came from the plain, fainting.
30And Esau said to Jacob, Let me taste of that red pottage, because I am fainting; therefore his name was called Edom.
31And Jacob said to Esau, Sell me this day thy birthright.
32And Esau said, Behold, I am going to die, and for what good does this birthright belong to me?
33And Jacob said to him, Swear to me this day; and he swore to him; and Esau sold his birthright to Jacob.
34And Jacob gave bread to Esau, and pottage of lentils; and he ate and drank, and he arose and departed; so Esau slighted his birthright.
