Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Avraham took another wife, and her name was Keturah. 1 Abraham took another wife, whose name was Keturah.
2 She bore him Zimran, Yokshan, Medan, Midyan, Yishbak, and Shuach. 2 She bore him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak and Shuah.
3 Yokshan became the father of Sheva, and Dedan. The sons of Dedan were Ashshurim, Letushim, and Le'ummim. 3 Jokshan was the father of Sheba and Dedan; the descendants of Dedan were the Asshurites, the Letushites and the Leummites.
4 The sons of Midyan: `Efah, `Efer, Hanokh, Avida, and Elda`ah. All these were the children of Keturah. 4 The sons of Midian were Ephah, Epher, Hanoch, Abida and Eldaah. All these were descendants of Keturah.
5 Avraham gave all that he had to Yitzchak, 5 Abraham left everything he owned to Isaac.
6 but to the sons of the concubines who Avraham had, Avraham gave gifts. He sent them away from Yitzchak his son, while he yet lived, eastward, to the east country. 6 But while he was still living, he gave gifts to the sons of his concubines and sent them away from his son Isaac to the land of the east.
7 These are the days of the years of Avraham's life which he lived: one hundred seventy-five years. 7 Altogether, Abraham lived a hundred and seventy-five years.
8 Avraham gave up the spirit, and died in a good old age, an old man, and full, and was gathered to his people. 8 Then Abraham breathed his last and died at a good old age, an old man and full of years; and he was gathered to his people.
9 Yitzchak and Yishma'el, his sons, buried him in the cave of Makhpelah, in the field of `Efron, the son of Tzochar the Hittite, which is before Mamre, 9 His sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah near Mamre, in the field of Ephron son of Zohar the Hittite,
10 the field which Avraham purchased of the children of Het. There was Avraham buried, with Sarah his wife. 10 the field Abraham had bought from the Hittites. There Abraham was buried with his wife Sarah.
11 It happened after the death of Avraham, that God blessed Yitzchak, his son. Yitzchak lived by Be'er-Lachai-Ro'i. 11 After Abraham's death, God blessed his son Isaac, who then lived near Beer Lahai Roi.
12 Now this is the history of the generations of Yishma'el, Avraham's son, whom Hagar the Mitzrian, Sarah's handmaid, bore to Avraham. 12 This is the account of Abraham's son Ishmael, whom Sarah's maidservant, Hagar the Egyptian, bore to Abraham.
13 These are the names of the sons of Yishma'el, by their names, according to the order of their birth: the firstborn of Yishma'el, Nevayot, then Kedar, Adbe'el, Mivsam, 13 These are the names of the sons of Ishmael, listed in the order of their birth: Nebaioth the firstborn of Ishmael, Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam,
14 Mishma, Dumah, Massa, 14 Mishma, Dumah, Massa,
15 Hadad, Tema, Yetur, Nafish, and Kedemah. 15 Hadad, Tema, Jetur, Naphish and Kedemah.
16 These are the sons of Yishma'el, and these are their names, by their villages, and by their encampments: twelve princes, according to their nations. 16 These were the sons of Ishmael, and these are the names of the twelve tribal rulers according to their settlements and camps.
17 These are the years of the life of Yishma'el: one hundred thirty-seven years. He gave up the spirit and died, and was gathered to his people. 17 Altogether, Ishmael lived a hundred and thirty-seven years. He breathed his last and died, and he was gathered to his people.
18 They lived from Havilah to Shur that is before Mitzrayim, as you go toward Ashshur. He lived opposite all his relatives. 18 His descendants settled in the area from Havilah to Shur, near the border of Egypt, as you go toward Asshur. And they lived in hostility toward all their brothers.
19 This is the history of the generations of Yitzchak, Avraham's son. Avraham became the father of Yitzchak. 19 This is the account of Abraham's son Isaac. Abraham became the father of Isaac,
20 Yitzchak was forty years old when he took Rivka, the daughter of Betu'el the Arammian of Paddan-Aram, the sister of Lavan the Arammian, to be his wife. 20 and Isaac was forty years old when he married Rebekah daughter of Bethuel the Aramean from Paddan Aram and sister of Laban the Aramean.
21 Yitzchak entreated the LORD for his wife, because she was barren. The LORD was entreated by him, and Rivka his wife conceived. 21 Isaac prayed to the LORD on behalf of his wife, because she was barren. The LORD answered his prayer, and his wife Rebekah became pregnant.
22 The children struggled together within her. She said, "If it be so, why do I live?" She went to inquire of the LORD. 22 The babies jostled each other within her, and she said, "Why is this happening to me?" So she went to inquire of the LORD.
23 The LORD said to her, Two nations are in your womb, Two peoples will be separated from your body. The one people will be stronger than the other people. The elder will serve the younger. 23 The LORD said to her, "Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples from within you will be separated; one people will be stronger than the other, and the older will serve the younger."
24 When her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb. 24 When the time came for her to give birth, there were twin boys in her womb.
25 The first came out red all over, like a hairy garment. They named him Esav. 25 The first to come out was red, and his whole body was like a hairy garment; so they named him Esau.
26 After that, his brother came out, and his hand had hold on Esav's heel. He was named Ya`akov. Yitzchak was sixty years old when she bore them. 26 After this, his brother came out, with his hand grasping Esau's heel; so he was named Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when Rebekah gave birth to them.
27 The boys grew. Esav was a skillful hunter, a man of the field. Ya`akov was a quiet man, living in tents. 27 The boys grew up, and Esau became a skillful hunter, a man of the open country, while Jacob was a quiet man, staying among the tents.
28 Now Yitzchak loved Esav, because he ate his venison. Rivka loved Ya`akov. 28 Isaac, who had a taste for wild game, loved Esau, but Rebekah loved Jacob.
29 Ya`akov boiled stew. Esav came in from the field, and he was famished. 29 Once when Jacob was cooking some stew, Esau came in from the open country, famished.
30 Esav said to Ya`akov, "Please feed me with that same red stew, for I am famished." Therefore his name was called Edom. 30 He said to Jacob, "Quick, let me have some of that red stew! I'm famished!" (That is why he was also called Edom. )
31 Ya`akov said, "First, sell me your birthright." 31 Jacob replied, "First sell me your birthright."
32 Esav said, "Behold, I am about to die. What good is the birthright to me?" 32 "Look, I am about to die," Esau said. "What good is the birthright to me?"
33 Ya`akov said, "Swear to me first." He swore to him. He sold his birthright to Ya`akov. 33 But Jacob said, "Swear to me first." So he swore an oath to him, selling his birthright to Jacob.
34 Ya`akov gave Esav bread and stew of lentils. He ate and drank, rose up, and went his way. So Esav despised his birthright. 34 Then Jacob gave Esau some bread and some lentil stew. He ate and drank, and then got up and left. So Esau despised his birthright.
