12 This is the history of the descendants of Ishmael, the son of Abraham through Hagar, Sarah's Egyptian servant. 12 This is the account of Abraham's son Ishmael, whom Sarah's maidservant, Hagar the Egyptian, bore to Abraham.
13 Here is a list, by their names and clans, of Ishmael's descendants: The oldest was Nebaioth, followed by Kedar, Abdeel, Mibsam, 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, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah. 15 Hadad, Tema, Jetur, Naphish and Kedemah.
16 These twelve sons of Ishmael became the founders of twelve tribes that bore their names, listed according to the places they settled and camped. 16 These were the sons of Ishmael, and these are the names of the twelve tribal rulers according to their settlements and camps.
17 Ishmael finally died at the age of 137 and joined his ancestors in death. 17 Altogether, Ishmael lived a hundred and thirty-seven years. He breathed his last and died, and he was gathered to his people.
18 Ishmael's descendants were scattered across the country from Havilah to Shur, which is east of Egypt in the direction of Asshur. The clans descended from Ishmael camped close to one another. 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.
