Genesis 25

25
1 In truth, Abraham took another wife, named Keturah.
2 And she bore to him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.
3 Likewise, Jokshan conceived Sheba and Dedan. The sons of Dedan were Asshurim, and Letushim, and Leummim.
4 And truly, from Midian was born Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abida, and Eldaah. All these were the sons of Keturah.
5 And Abraham gave everything that he possessed to Isaac.
6 But to the sons of the concubines he gave generous gifts, and he separated them from his son Isaac, while he still lived, toward the eastern region.
7 Now the days of Abraham's life were one hundred and seventy-five years.
8 And declining, he died in a good old age, and at an advanced stage of life, and full of days. And he was gathered to his people.
9 And his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the double cave, which was situated in the field of Ephron, of the son of Zohar the Hittite, across from the region of Mamre,
10 which he had bought from the sons of Heth. There he was buried, with his wife Sarah.
11 And after his passing, God blessed his son Isaac, who lived near the well named 'of the One who lives and who sees.'
12 These are the generations of Ishmael, the son of Abraham, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's servant, bore to him.
13 And these are the names of his sons according to their language and generations. The firstborn of Ishmael was Nebaioth, then Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,
14 likewise Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa,
15 Hadad, and Tema, and Jetur, and Naphish, and Kedemah.
16 These are the sons of Ishmael. And these are their names throughout their fortresses and towns: the twelve princes of their tribes.
17 And the years of the life of Ishmael that passed were one hundred and thirty-seven. And declining, he died and was placed with his people.
18 Now he had lived from Havilah as far as Shur, which overlooks Egypt as it approaches the Assyrians. He passed away in the sight of all his brothers.
19 Likewise, these are the generations of Isaac, the son of Abraham. Abraham conceived Isaac,
20 who, when he was forty years old, took Rebekah, the sister of Laban, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian from Mesopotamia, as a wife.
21 And Isaac beseeched the Lord on behalf of his wife, because she was barren. And he heard him, and he gave conception to Rebekah.
22 But the little ones struggled in her womb. So she said, "If it was to be so with me, what need was there to conceive?" And she went to consult the Lord.
23 And responding, he said, "Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples will be divided out of your womb, and one people will overcome the other people, and the elder will serve the younger."
24 Now the time had arrived to give birth, and behold, twins were discovered in her womb.
25 He who departed first was red, and entirely hairy like a pelt; and his name was called Esau. At once the other departed and he held his brother's foot in his hand; and because of this he was called Jacob.
26 Isaac was sixty years old when the little ones were born to him.
27 And as adults, Esau became a knowledgeable hunter and a man of agriculture, but Jacob, a simple man, dwelt in tents.
28 Isaac was fond of Esau, because he was fed from his hunting; and Rebekah loved Jacob.
29 Then Jacob boiled a small meal. Esau, when he had arrived weary from the field,
30 said to him, "Give me this red stew, for I am very tired." For this reason, his name was called Edom.
31 Jacob said to him, "Sell me your right of the firstborn."
32 He answered, "Lo, I am dying, what will the right of the firstborn provide for me?"
33 Jacob said, "So then, swear to me." Esau swore to him, and he sold his right of the firstborn.
34 And so, taking bread and the food of lentils, he ate, and he drank, and he went away, giving little weight to having sold the right of the firstborn.

Genesis 25
1¶ Then again Abraham took a wife, and her name was Keturah.
2And she bore him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuah.
3And Jokshan begat Sheba and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim, Letushim, and Leummim.
4And the sons of Midian: Ephah, Epher, Enoch, Abida, and Eldaah. All these were the sons of Keturah.
5And Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac.
6But unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts and sent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto the east country.
7And these were the days of the years of Abraham’s life which he lived, one hundred seventy-five years.
8Then Abraham expired and died in a good old age, an old man and full of years, and was gathered to his people.
9And his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is in front of Mamre;
10the field which Abraham purchased of the sons of Heth, there was Abraham buried, and Sarah his wife.
11¶ And it came to pass after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his son Isaac; and Isaac dwelt by the well Lahairoi. {Heb. the Living One who sees me}
12Now these are the generations of Ishmael, son of Abraham, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah’s handmaid, gave birth unto Abraham:
13And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their lineages: the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebajoth, and Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam,
14Mishma, Dumah, Massa,
15Hadar, Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah.
16These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their towns and by their palaces; twelve princes according to their families.
17And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, one hundred thirty-seven years; and Ishmael expired and died and was gathered unto his people.
18And they dwelt from Havilah unto Shur, that is before Egypt, as thou goest toward Assyria; and he fell in the presence of all his brethren.
19¶ And these are the generations of Isaac, son of Abraham. Abraham begat Isaac;
20and Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife, the daughter of Bethuel, the Aramean of Padanaram, the sister to Laban the Aramean.
21And Isaac prayed unto the Lord for his wife because she was barren; and the Lord accepted him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.
22And the sons struggled together within her; and she said, If this is so, why should I live? And she went to enquire of the Lord.
23And the Lord said unto her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of peoples shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger.
24And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.
25And the first came out red, all over like a hairy garment; and they called his name Esau.
26And afterwards his brother came out with Esau’s heel grasped in his hand; and his name was called Jacob. And Isaac was sixty years old when Rebekah gave birth to them.
27And the boys grew, and Esau was a cunning hunter, a man of the field; and Jacob was an upright man, remaining in the tents.
28And Isaac loved Esau because he ate of his venison; but Rebekah loved Jacob.
29¶ And Jacob boiled pottage; and Esau came from the field, and he was faint;
30and Esau said to Jacob, Give me to eat, I pray thee, of that red pottage; for I am faint. Therefore was his name called Edom.
31And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright.
32And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die; and what profit shall this birthright do to me?
33And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he swore unto him and he sold his birthright unto Jacob.
34Then Jacob gave Esau of the bread and of the pottage of lentils; and he ate and drank, and rose up, and went away. Thus Esau despised his birthright.
