1 Now Abraham took another wife, awhose name was Keturah. 2 1She bore to him Zimran and Jokshan and Medan and Midian and Ishbak and Shuah. 3 Jokshan bbecame the father of Sheba and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim and Letushim and Leummim. 4 The sons of Midian were Ephah and Epher and Hanoch and Abida and Eldaah. All these were the sons of Keturah. 5 2Now Abraham gave all that he had to Isaac; 6 but to the sons of chis concubines, Abraham gave gifts while he was still living, and 3sent them away from his son Isaac eastward, to the land of the east. 7 These are dall the years of Abraham's life that he lived, 4one hundred and seventy-five years. 8 Abraham breathed his last and died 5in a eripe old age, an old man and satisfied with life; and he was 6gathered to his people. 9 Then his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in 7the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, facing Mamre, 10 8the field which Abraham purchased from the sons of Heth; there Abraham was buried with Sarah his wife. 11 It came about after the death of Abraham, that 9God blessed his son Isaac; and Isaac flived by 10Beer-lahai-roi.

Isaac's Sons

19 Now these are the records of 19the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son: Abraham nbecame the father of Isaac; 20 and Isaac was forty years old when he took 20Rebekah, the 21daughter of Bethuel the oAramean of Paddan-aram, the 22sister of Laban the pAramean, to be his wife. 21 Isaac prayed to the LORD on behalf of his wife, because she was barren; and 23the LORD qanswered him and Rebekah his wife 24conceived. 22 But the children struggled together within her; and she said, "If it is so, why then am I this way?" So she went to 25inquire of the LORD. 23 The LORD said to her, "26Two nations are in your womb; 27And two peoples will be separated from your body; And one people shall be stronger than the other; And 28the older shall serve the younger." 24 When her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb. 25 Now the first came forth red, 29all over like a hairy garment; and they named him Esau. 26 Afterward his brother came forth with 30his hand holding on to Esau's heel, so 31his name was called rJacob; and Isaac was 32sixty years old when she gave birth to them. 27 When the boys grew up, Esau became a skillful hunter, a man of the field, but Jacob was a speaceful man, t33living in tents. 28 Now Isaac loved Esau, because uhe had 34a taste for game, 35but Rebekah loved Jacob. 29 When Jacob had cooked 36stew, Esau came in from the field and he was vfamished; 30 and Esau said to Jacob, "Please let me have a swallow of wthat red stuff there, for I am xfamished." Therefore his name was called yEdom. 31 But Jacob said, "zFirst sell me your 37birthright." 32 Esau said, "Behold, I am about to die; so of what use then is the birthright to me?" 33 And Jacob said, "aaFirst swear to me"; so he swore to him, and 38sold his birthright to Jacob. 34 Then Jacob gave Esau bread and lentil stew; and he ate and drank, and rose and went on his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.
