The Families of Ishmael and Isaac(A)

12 Now this is the (B)genealogy of Ishmael, Abraham’s son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah’s maidservant, bore to Abraham. 13 And (C)these were the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: The firstborn of Ishmael, Nebajoth; then Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam, 14 Mishma, Dumah, Massa, 15 [a]Hadar, Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah. 16 These were the sons of Ishmael and these were their names, by their towns and their [b]settlements, (D)twelve princes according to their nations. 17 These were the years of the life of Ishmael: one hundred and thirty-seven years; and (E)he breathed his last and died, and was gathered to his people. 18 (F)(They dwelt from Havilah as far as Shur, which is east of Egypt as you go toward Assyria.) He [c]died (G)in the presence of all his brethren.

19 This is the (H)genealogy of Isaac, Abraham’s son. (I)Abraham begot Isaac. 20 Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah as wife, (J)the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padan Aram, (K)the sister of Laban the Syrian. 21 Now Isaac pleaded with the Lord for his wife, because she was barren; (L)and the Lord granted his plea, (M)and Rebekah his wife conceived. 22 But the children struggled together within her; and she said, “If all is well, why am I like this?” (N)So she went to inquire of the Lord.
