1Abraham married another wife whose name was Keturah; 2and she bore him Zimram, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak and Shuah. 3Jokshan was the father of Sheba and Dedan, and the descendants of Dedan were the Asshurites, theLetushim and the Leummim. 4The descendants of Midian were Ephah, Epher, Hanoch, Abida and Eldaah. Al these were sons ofKeturah. 5Abraham left al his possessions to Isaac. 6To the sons of his concubines Abraham made grants during his lifetime, sending them away from hisson Isaac eastward, to the Land of the East. 7The number of years Abraham lived was a hundred and seventy-five. 8When Abraham had breathed his last, dying at a happy ripe age, old and ful of years, he wasgathered to his people. 9His sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah facing Mamre, in the field of Ephronthe Hittite son of Zohar. 10This was the field that Abraham had bought from the Hittites, and Abraham and his wife Sarah wereburied there. 11After Abraham's death, God blessed his son Isaac. Isaac settled near the wel of Lahai Roi. 12These are the descendants of Ishmael son of Abraham by Hagar, Sarah's Egyptian slave-girl. 13These are the names of the sons of Ishmael by name and line: Ishmael's first-born was Nebaioth;then Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam, 14Mishma, Dumah, Massa, 15Hadad, Tema, Jetur, Naphish and Kedemah. 16These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, according to their settlements andencampments, twelve chiefs of as many tribes. 17The number of years Ishmael lived was one hundred and thirty-seven. When he breathed his lastand died, he was gathered to his people. 18He lived in the territory stretching from Havilah-by-Shur just outside Egypt on the way to Assyria, andhe held his own against all his kinsmen. 19This is the story of Isaac son of Abraham. Abraham fathered Isaac. 20Isaac was forty years old when he married Rebekah the daughter of Bethuel the Aramaean ofPaddan-Aram, and sister of Laban the Aramaean. 21Isaac prayed to Yahweh on behalf of his wife, for she was barren. Yahweh heard his prayer, and hiswife Rebekah conceived. 22But the children inside her struggled so much that she said, 'If this is the way of it, why go on living?'So she went to consult Yahweh, 23and Yahweh said to her: There are two nations in your womb, your issue wil be two rival peoples.One nation wil have the mastery of the other, and the elder wil serve the younger. 24When the time came for her confinement, there were indeed twins in her womb. 25The first to be born was red, altogether like a hairy cloak; so they named him Esau. 26Then his brother was born, with his hand grasping Esau's heel; so they named him Jacob. Isaac wassixty years old at the time of their birth. 27When the boys grew up Esau became a skil ed hunter, a man of the open country. Jacob on theother hand was a quiet man, staying at home among the tents. 28Isaac preferred Esau, for he had a taste for wild game; but Rebekah preferred Jacob. 29Once, when Jacob was cooking a stew, Esau returned from the countryside exhausted. 30Esau said to Jacob, 'Give me a mouthful of that red stuff there; I am exhausted' -- hence the namegiven to him, Edom. 31Jacob said, 'First, give me your birthright in exchange.' 32Esau said, 'Here I am, at death's door; what use is a birthright to me?' 33Then Jacob said, 'First give me your oath'; he gave him his oath and sold his birthright to Jacob. 34Then Jacob gave him some bread and lentil stew; he ate, drank, got up and went away. That was allEsau cared about his birthright.
