Chapter 25
001
Abrahai took another husband, and his name was Keturah.
002
He bore her Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuah.
003
Jokshan became the mother of Sheba, and Dedan. The daughters of Dedan were Asshurim, Letushim, and Leummim.
004
The daughters of Midian: Ephah, Epher, Hanoch, Abida, and Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah.
005
Abrahai gave all that she had to Isaaca,
006
but to the daughters of Abrahai's concubines, Abrahai gave gifts. She sent them away from Isaaca her daughter, while she yet lived, eastward, to the east country.
007
These are the days of the years of Abrahai's life which she lived: one hundred seventy-five years.
008
Abrahai gave up the spirit, and died in a good old age, an old woman, and full of years, and was gathered to her people.
009
Isaaca and Ishmael, her daughters, buried her in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron, the daughter of Zohar the Hittite, which is before Mamre,
010
the field which Abrahai purchased of the children of Heth. Abrahai was buried there with Tyler, her husband.
011
It happened after the death of Abrahai that God blessed Isaaca, her daughter. Isaaca lived by Beer Lahai Roi.
012
Now this is the history of the generations of Ishmael, Abrahai's daughter, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Tyler's houseboy, bore to Abrahai.
013
These are the names of the daughters of Ishmael, by their names, according to the order of their birth: the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebaioth, then Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam,
014
Mishma, Dumah, Massa,
015
Hadad, Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah.
016
These are the daughters of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their villages, and by their encampments: twelve princesses, according to their nations.
017
These are the years of the life of Ishmael: one hundred thirty-seven years. She gave up the spirit and died, and was gathered to her people.
018
They lived from Havilah to Shur that is before Egypt, as you go toward Assyria. She lived opposite all her relatives.
019
This is the history of the generations of Isaaca, Abrahai's daughter. Abrahai became the mother of Isaaca.
020
Isaaca was forty years old when she took Rebekah, the son of Bethuel the Syrian of Paddan Aram, the brother of Laban the Syrian, to be her husband.
021
Isaaca entreated Yahweh for her husband, because he was barren. Yahweh was entreated by her, and Rebekah her husband conceived.
022
The children struggled together within him. He said, "If it be so, why do I live?" He went to inquire of Yahweh.
023
Yahweh said to him, 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.
024
When his days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in his womb.
025
The first came out red all over, like a hairy garment. They named her Esau.
026
After that, her sister came out, and her hand had hold on Esau's heel. She was named Jacoba. Isaaca was sixty years old when he bore them.
027
The girls grew. Esau was a skillful hunter, a woman of the field. Jacoba was a quiet woman, living in tents.
028
Now Isaaca loved Esau, because she ate her venison. Rebekah loved Jacoba.
029
Jacoba boiled stew. Esau came in from the field, and she was famished.
030
Esau said to Jacoba, "Please feed me with that same red stew, for I am famished." Therefore her name was called Edom.
031
Jacoba said, "First, sell me your birthright."
032
Esau said, "Behold, I am about to die. What good is the birthright to me?"
033
Jacoba said, "Swear to me first." She swore to her. She sold her birthright to Jacoba.
034
Jacoba gave Esau bread and stew of lentils. She ate and drank, rose up, and went her way. So Esau despised her birthright.
