Genesis 25


25:1 Then again Abraham took a wife, and her name [was] Keturah.
25:2 And she bore him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and
 Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.
25:3 And Jokshan begat Sheba, and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan
 were Asshurim, and Letushim and Leummim.
25:4 And the sons of Midian; Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and
 Abidah, and Eldaah. All these [were] the children of Keturah.
25:5 And Abraham gave all that he had to Isaac.
25:6 But to the sons of the concubines which Abraham had,
 Abraham gave gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his son
 (while he yet lived) eastward, to the east country.
25:7 And these [are] the days of the years of Abraham's life
 which he lived, a hundred and seventy five years.
25:8 Then Abraham expired, and died in a good old age, an old
 man, and full [of years]; and was gathered to his people.
25:9 And 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] before Mamre;
25:10 The field which Abraham purchased of the sons of Heth:
 there was Abraham buried, and Sarah his wife.
25:11 And it came to pass after the death of Abraham, that God
 blessed his son Isaac: and Isaac dwelt by the well Lahai-roi.
25:12 Now these [are] the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son,
 whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's handmaid, bore to Abraham.
25:13 And these [are] the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their
 names, according to their generations: The first-born of
 Ishmael, Nebajoth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,
25:14 And Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa,
25:15 Hadar, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah:
25:16 These [are] the sons of Ishmael, and these [are] their
 names, by their towns, and by their castles; twelve princes
 according to their nations.
25:17 And these [are] the years of the life of Ishmael; a
 hundred and thirty and seven years: and he expired and died,
 and was gathered to his people.
25:18 And they dwelt from Havilah to Shur, that [is] before
 Egypt, as thou goest towards Assyria: [and] he died in the
 presence of all his brethren.
25:19 And these [are] the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son:
 Abraham begat Isaac:
25:20 And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to
 wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padan-aram, the
 sister to Laban the Syrian.
25:21 And Isaac entreated the LORD for his wife, because she
 [was] barren: and the LORD was entreated of him, and Rebekah
 his wife conceived.
25:22 And the children struggled together within her: and she
 said, If [it is] so, why [am] I thus? And she went to inquire
 of the LORD.
25:23 And the LORD said to her, Two nations [are] in thy womb,
 and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels:
 and [the one] people shall be stronger than [the other] people;
 and the elder shall serve the younger.
25:24 And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold,
 [there were] twins in her womb.
25:25 And the first was born red, all over like a hairy garment:
 and they called his name Esau.
25:26 And after that his brother was born, and his hand took
 hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac
 [was] sixty years old when she bore them.
25:27 And the boys grew: and Esau was a skillful hunter, a man
 of the field; and Jacob [was] a plain man dwelling in tents.
25:28 And Isaac loved Esau, because he ate of [his] venison: but
 Rebekah loved Jacob.
25:29 And Jacob boiled pottage: and Esau came from the field,
 and he [was] faint.
25:30 And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that
 same red [pottage]; for I [am] faint: therefore was his name
 called Edom.
25:31 And Jacob said, Sell to me this day thy birth-right.
25:32 And Esau said, Behold, I [am] at the point to die: and
 what profit shall this birth-right bring to me?
25:33 And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he swore to him:
 and he sold his birth-right to Jacob.
25:34 Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he
 ate and drank, and rose and went his way: thus Esau despised
 [his] birth-right.
