Abraham married another wife named Keturah.

Keturah bore him Ziram, Joshan, Midan, Midian, Ishbah, and Shua.

Joshan gave birth to Sheba and Dedan. The descendants of Dedan are the Ashulites, the Ledulites, and the Reumites.

The sons of Midian were Ephah, Epher, Hanoch, Abida, and Elda. These are all descendants of Keturah.

Abraham gave everything to Isaac.

Abraham distributed the wealth among his illegitimate sons and sent them away from his son Isaac to the east while he was still alive.

Abraham’s lifetime was one hundred and seventy-five years old.

Abraham lived a long and old age, but he died of exhaustion and returned to his people.

His two sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah. This cave is in the field of Ephron, the son of Zohar the Hittite, in front of Manri,

It is the field that Abraham bought from the Hittites. Abraham and his wife Sarah were buried there.

After Abraham’s death, God blessed his son Isaac. Isaac lived near Beerlah Hailai.

The son that Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah’s maid, bore to Abraham was Ishmael.

The names of Ishmael’s sons are recorded below according to their genealogy. The eldest son of Ishmael was Nebaioth, along with Kedah, Adbeth, and Mibizan,

Mishma, Duma, Massa,

Hada, Tema, Ithu, Naphish, Kedemah.

These are the names of the sons of Ishmael, who were appointed as the heads of twelve tribes according to their villages and camps.

Ishmael lived for one hundred and thirty-seven years, but he died of exhaustion and returned to his people.

His descendants lived on the east side of his brothers, from Havilah to Shur in front of Egypt, on the way to Assyria.

The descendants of Isaac, the son of Abraham, are recorded below. Abraham gave birth to Isaac.

Isaac was forty years old when he married Rebekah. Rebekah was the daughter of Bethuel the Arameans from the land of Padan Aram, and the sister of Laban the Arameans.

Isaac prayed to the Lord for his wife because she was barren. The Lord answered his prayer, and his wife Rebekah became pregnant.

The children were arguing with each other in her womb, and she said, “If that’s the case, why am I alive?”? Why am I doing this. She went to inquire with the Lord.

The Lord said to her, Two nations are in your womb. Two tribes are coming out of you. This tribe will be stronger than that tribe. In the future, the big will serve the small.

The day of production has arrived, and indeed there are twins in the womb.

The first child’s body turned red and covered in fur, like a leather garment. So they named him Esau (which means hairy).

Then he gave birth to Esau’s brother, who grabbed Esau’s heel with his hand, and named him Jacob (which means “grab”). Isaac was sixty years old when Rebekah gave birth to two sons.

As the two children grew up, Esau was skilled in hunting and often spent time in the fields. Jacob is a quiet person who often resides in tents.

Isaac loved Esau because he often ate his wild game. But Rebekah loved Jacob.

One day, Jacob cooked soup, and Esau came back from the field exhausted and fainted.

Esau said to Jacob, “I am tired and faint. Please give me this red soup to drink.”. Therefore, Esau is also called Edom (Edom means red).

Jacob said, Sell me the birthright of your eldest son today.

Esau said, I am about to die. What benefit does this birthright have for me?

Jacob said, Swear to me today. Esau swore to him and sold his birthright to Jacob.

So Jacob gave Esau bread and red bean soup. Esau ate and drank, then got up and left. This is why Esau underestimated his eldest son’s title.
