Genesis 25

The sons of Abraham by Keturah.

Genesis 25:1 And Abraham married another wife named Cetura: Genesis 25:2 Who bore him Zamram, and Jecsan, and Madan, and Madian, and Jesboc, and Sue. Genesis 25:3 Jecsan also begot Saba, and Dadan. The children of Dadan were Assurim, and Latusim, and Loomim. Genesis 25:4 But of Madian was born Epha, and Opher, and Henoch, and Abida, and Eldaa: all these were the children of Cetura.

The division of his goods.

Genesis 25:5 And Abraham gave all his possessions to Isaac: Genesis 25:6 And to the children of the concubines he gave gifts, and separated them from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, to the east country.

His age, and death.

Genesis 25:7 And the days of Abraham's life were a hundred and seventy-five years. Genesis 25:8 And decaying he died in a good old age, and having lived a long time, and being full of days: and was gathered to his people.

His burial.

Genesis 25:9 And Isaac and Ismael his sons buried him in the double cave, which was situated in the field of Ephron the son of Seor the Hethite, over against Mambre, Genesis 25:10 Which he had bought of the children of Heth: there was he buried, and Sara his wife.

Genesis 25:11 And after his death, God blessed Isaac his son, who dwelt by the well named Of the living and seeing.

The generations of Ishmael.

Genesis 25:12 These are the generations of Ismael the son of Abraham, whom Agar the Egyptian, Sara's servant, bore unto him: Genesis 25:13 And these are the names of his children according to their calling and generations. The firstborn of Ismael was Nabajoth, then Cedar, and Adbeel, and Mabsam, Genesis 25:14 And Masma, and Duma, and Massa, Genesis 25:15 Hadar, and Thema, and Jethur, and Naphis, and Cedma. Genesis 25:16 These are the sons of Ismael: and these are their names by their castles and towns, twelve princes of their tribes.

His age, and death.

Genesis 25:17 And the years of Ismael's life were a hundred and thirty-seven, and decaying he died, and was gathered unto his people. Genesis 25:18 And he dwelt from Hevila as far as Sur, which looketh towards Egypt, to them that go towards the Assyrians. He died in the presence of all his brethren.

Genesis 25:19 These also are the generations of Isaac the son of Abraham: Abraham begot Isaac: Genesis 25:20 Who when he was forty years old, took to wife Rebecca the daughter of Bathuel the Syrian of Mesopotamia, sister to Laban.

Isaac prayeth for Rebekah, being barren.

Genesis 25:21 And Isaac besought the Lord for his wife, because she was barren: and he heard him, and made Rebecca to conceive.

The children strive within her womb.

Genesis 25:22 But the children struggled in her womb, and she said: If it were to be so with me, what need was there to conceive? And she went to consult the Lord. Genesis 25:23 And he answering, said: Two nations are in thy womb, and two peoples shall be divided out of thy womb, and one people shall overcome the other, and the elder shall serve the younger.

The birth of Esau and Jacob.

Genesis 25:24 And when her time was come to be delivered, behold twins were found in her womb. Genesis 25:25 He that came forth first was red, and hairy like a skin: and his name was called Esau. Immediately the other coming forth, held his brother's foot in his hand: and therefore he was called Jacob. Genesis 25:26 Isaac was threescore years old when the children were born unto him.

Their difference.

Genesis 25:27 And when they were grown up, Esau became a skilful hunter, and a husbandman: but Jacob, a plain man, dwelt in tents. Genesis 25:28 Isaac loved Esau, because he ate of his hunting: and Rebecca loved Jacob.

Esau selleth his birthright.

Genesis 25:29 And Jacob boiled pottage: to whom Esau, coming faint out of the field, Genesis 25:30 Said: Give me of this red pottage, for I am exceeding faint. For which reason his name was called Edom. Genesis 25:31 And Jacob said to him: Sell me thy first birthright. Genesis 25:32 He answered: Lo I die, what will the first birthright avail me? Genesis 25:33 Jacob said: Swear therefore to me. Esau swore to him, and sold his first birthright. Genesis 25:34 And so taking bread and the pottage of lentils, he ate, and drank, and went on his way; making little account of having sold his first birthright.
