Keturah [N] [H] [S]
incense, the wife of Abraham, whom he married probably after Sarah's death ( Genesis 25:1-6 ), by whom he had six sons, whom he sent away into the east country. Her nationality is unknown. She is styled "Abraham's concubine" ( 1 Chronicles 1:32 ). Through the offshoots of the Keturah line Abraham became the "father of many nations."
