Genesis 25

Genesis Chapter 25 KJV

1The sons of Abraham by Keturah. 5The division of his goods. 7His age, death, and burial. 11God blesseth Isaac. 12The generations of Ishmael, his age, and death. 19Isaac's descent and alliance by marriage. 21Rebekah being barren, he prayeth for her; she conceiveth; the children strive in her womb, which is a token of the future fortunes of their posterity. 24The birth of Esau and Jacob. 27The difference of their life and manners. 29Esau selleth his birthright to Jacob.
1 Then 1again Abraham took a wife, and her name was Keturah.
2 And she bare him 1Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and 2Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.
3 And Jokshan begat Sheba, and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were 1Asshurim, and Letushim, and Leummim.
4 And the sons of Midian; 1Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abida, and Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah.
5 ¶ And 1Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac.
6 But unto the sons of the 1concubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts, and 2sent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto 3the east country.
7 And these are the days of the years of Abraham's life which he lived, an hundred threescore and fifteen years.
8 Then Abraham gave up the ghost, and died 1in a good old age, an old man, and full of years; and 2was gathered to his people.
9 And 1his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in 2the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is before Mamre;
10 1The field which Abraham purchased of the sons of Heth: 2there was Abraham buried, and Sarah his wife.
11 ¶ And it came to pass after the death of Abraham, that God 1blessed his son Isaac; and Isaac dwelt by 2the well Lahai-roi.
12 ¶ Now these are 1the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son, 2whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's handmaid, bare unto Abraham:
13 And 1these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael, 2Nebajoth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,
14 And Mishma, and 1Dumah, and Massa,
15 aHadar, and 1Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah:
16 These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their towns, and by their castles; 1twelve princes according to their nations.
17 And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, an hundred and thirty and seven years: and he gave up the ghost and died; and was 1gathered unto his people.
18 And they dwelt from 1Havilah unto 2Shur, that is before Egypt, as thou goest toward Assyria: and he adied in the presence of all his brethren.
19 ¶ And these are the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son: 1Abraham begat Isaac:
20 And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife, 1the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of 2Padan-aram, 3the sister to Laban the Syrian.
21 And Isaac 1intreated the Lord for his wife, because she was barren: 2and the Lord was intreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.
22 And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she 1went to enquire of the Lord.
23 And the Lord said unto her, 1Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and 2the elder shall serve the younger.
24 ¶ And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.
25 And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau.
26 And after that came his brother out, and 1his hand took hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore years old when she bare them.
27 And the boys grew: and Esau 1was a cunning hunter, a man of the field; and Jacob was 2a plain man, dwelling in tents.
28 And Isaac loved Esau, because ahe did eat of his venison: but Rebekah loved Jacob.
29 ¶ And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was faint:
30 And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, awith that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called bEdom.
31 And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright.
32 And Esau said, Behold, I am aat the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?
33 And Jacob said, 1Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and 2he sold his birthright unto Jacob.
34 Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.
