Genesis 25

The sons of Abraham by Keturah.

Genesis 25:1 And Abraham addeth and taketh a wife, and her name [is] Keturah; Genesis 25:2 and she beareth to him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah. Genesis 25:3 And Jokshan hath begotten Sheba and Dedan; and the sons of Dedan were Asshurim, and Letushim, and Leummim; Genesis 25:4 and the sons of Midian [are] Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abidah, and Eldaah: all these [are] sons of Keturah.

The division of his goods.

Genesis 25:5 And Abraham giveth all that he hath to Isaac; Genesis 25:6 and to the sons of the concubines whom Abraham hath, Abraham hath given gifts, and sendeth them away from Isaac his son (in his being yet alive) eastward, unto the east country.

His age, and death.

Genesis 25:7 And these [are] the days of the years of the life of Abraham, which he lived, a hundred and seventy and five years; Genesis 25:8 and Abraham expireth, and dieth in a good old age, aged and satisfied, and is gathered unto his people.

His burial.

Genesis 25:9 And Isaac and Ishmael his sons bury him at the cave of Machpelah, at the field of Ephron, son of Zoar the Hittite, which [is] before Mamre— Genesis 25:10 the field which Abraham bought from the sons of Heth—there hath Abraham been buried, and Sarah his wife.

Genesis 25:11 And it cometh to pass after the death of Abraham, that God blesseth Isaac his son; and Isaac dwelleth by the Well of the Living One, my Beholder.

The generations of Ishmael.

Genesis 25:12 And these [are] births of Ishmael, Abraham's son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's handmaid, hath borne to Abraham; Genesis 25:13 and these [are] the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their births: first-born of Ishmael, Nebajoth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam, Genesis 25:14 and Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa, Genesis 25:15 Hadar, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah: Genesis 25:16 these are sons of Ishmael, and these their names, by their villages, and by their towers; twelve princes according to their peoples.

His age, and death.

Genesis 25:17 And these [are] the years of the life of Ishmael, a hundred and thirty and seven years; and he expireth, and dieth, and is gathered unto his people; Genesis 25:18 and they tabernacle from Havilah unto Shur, which [is] before Egypt, in [thy] going towards Asshur; in the presence of all his brethren hath he fallen.

Genesis 25:19 And these [are] births of Isaac, Abraham's son: Abraham hath begotten Isaac; Genesis 25:20 and Isaac is a son of forty years in his taking Rebekah, daughter of Bethuel the Aramaean, from Padan-Aram, sister of Laban the Aramaean, to him for a wife.

Isaac prayeth for Rebekah, being barren.

Genesis 25:21 And Isaac maketh entreaty to Jehovah before his wife, for she [is] barren: and Jehovah is entreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceiveth,

The children strive within her womb.

Genesis 25:22 and the children struggle together within her, and she saith, 'If [it is] right—why [am] I thus?' and she goeth to seek Jehovah. Genesis 25:23 And Jehovah saith to her, 'Two nations [are] in thy womb, and two peoples from thy bowels are parted; and the [one] people than the [other] people is stronger; and the elder doth serve the younger.'

The birth of Esau and Jacob.

Genesis 25:24 And her days to bear are fulfilled, and lo, twins [are] in her womb; Genesis 25:25 and the first cometh out all red as a hairy robe, and they call his name Esau; Genesis 25:26 and afterwards hath his brother come out, and his hand is taking hold on Esau's heel, and one calleth his name Jacob; and Isaac [is] a son of sixty years in her bearing them.

Their difference.

Genesis 25:27 And the youths grew, and Esau is a man acquainted [with] hunting, a man of the field; and Jacob [is] a plain man, inhabiting tents; Genesis 25:28 and Isaac loveth Esau, for [his] hunting [is] in his mouth; and Rebekah is loving Jacob.

Esau selleth his birthright.

Genesis 25:29 And Jacob boileth pottage, and Esau cometh in from the field, and he [is] weary; Genesis 25:30 and Esau saith unto Jacob, 'Let me eat, I pray thee, some of this red red thing, for I [am] weary;' therefore hath [one] called his name Edom [Red]; Genesis 25:31 and Jacob saith, 'Sell to-day thy birthright to me.' Genesis 25:32 And Esau saith, 'Lo, I am going to die, and what is this to me—birthright?' Genesis 25:33 and Jacob saith, 'Swear to me to-day:' and he sweareth to him, and selleth his birthright to Jacob; Genesis 25:34 and Jacob hath given to Esau bread and pottage of lentiles, and he eateth, and drinketh, and riseth, and goeth; and Esau despiseth the birthright.
