Genesis 25 New English Translation (NET Bible)
The Death of Abraham
25 Abraham had taken[a] another[b] wife, named Keturah. 2 She bore him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuah. 3 Jokshan became the father of Sheba and Dedan.[c] The descendants of Dedan were the Asshurites, Letushites, and Leummites. 4 The sons of Midian were Ephah, Epher, Hanoch, Abida, and Eldaah. All these were descendants[d] of Keturah.
7 Abraham lived a total of[g] 175 years. 8 Then Abraham breathed his last and died at a good old age, an old man who had lived a full life.[h] He joined his ancestors.[i] 9 His sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah[j] near Mamre, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar, the Hittite.[k] 10 This was the field Abraham had purchased from the sons of Heth.[l] There Abraham was buried with his wife Sarah. 11 After Abraham’s death, God blessed[m] his son Isaac. Isaac lived near Beer Lahai Roi.[n]
The Sons of Ishmael
12 This is the account of Abraham’s son Ishmael,[o] whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah’s servant, bore to Abraham.
13 These are the names of Ishmael’s sons, by their names according to their records:[p] Nebaioth (Ishmael’s firstborn), Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam, 14 Mishma, Dumah, Massa, 15 Hadad, Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah. 16 These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names by their settlements and their camps—twelve princes[q] according to their clans.
17 Ishmael lived a total of[r] 137 years. He breathed his last and died; then he joined his ancestors.[s] 18 His descendants[t] settled from Havilah to Shur, which runs next to[u] Egypt all the way[v] to Asshur.[w] They settled[x] away from all their relatives.[y]
Jacob and Esau
19 This is the account of Isaac,[z] the son of Abraham.
21 Isaac prayed[ac] to the Lord on behalf of his wife because she was childless. The Lord answered his prayer, and his wife Rebekah became pregnant. 22 But the children struggled[ad] inside her, and she said, “Why is this happening to me?”[ae] So she asked the Lord,[af] 23 and the Lord said to her,
“Two nations[ag] are in your womb,
24 When the time came for Rebekah to give birth,[ah] there were[ai] twins in her womb. 25 The first came out reddish[aj] all over,[ak] like a hairy[al] garment, so they named him Esau.[am] 26 When his brother came out with[an] his hand clutching Esau’s heel, they named him Jacob.[ao] Isaac was sixty years old[ap] when they were born.
27 When the boys grew up, Esau became a skilled[aq] hunter, a man of the open fields, but Jacob was an even-tempered man, living in tents.[ar] 28 Isaac loved Esau because he had a taste for fresh game,[as] but Rebekah loved[at] Jacob.
29 Now Jacob cooked some stew,[au] and when Esau came in from the open fields, he was famished. 30 So Esau said to Jacob, “Feed[av] me some of the red stuff—yes, this red stuff—because I’m starving!” (That is why he was also called[aw] Edom.)[ax]
31 But Jacob replied, “First[ay] sell me your birthright.” 32 “Look,” said Esau, “I’m about to die! What use is the birthright to me?”[az] 33 But Jacob said, “Swear an oath to me now.”[ba] So Esau[bb] swore an oath to him and sold his birthright[bc] to Jacob.
