Genesis 25:1

1Then againe Abraham tooke a wife, & her name was Keturah.
2And shee bare him Zimran, and Iokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and
Ishbak, and Shuah.
3And Iokshan begat Sheba, and Dedan. And the sonnes of Dedan were
Asshurim, and Letushim, and Leummim.
4And the sonnes of Midian, Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abida, and
Eldaah: all these were the children of Keturah.
5¶ And Abraham gaue all that he had, vnto Isaac.
6But vnto the sonnes of the concubines which Abraham had, Abraham gaue
gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his sonne (while he yet liued)
Eastward, vnto the East country.
7And these are the dayes of the yeres of Abrahams life which he liued; an
hundred, threescore & fifteene yeeres.
8Then Abraham gaue vp the ghost, and died in a good old age, an old man,
and full of yeeres, and was gathered to his people.
9And his sonnes Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the caue of Machpelah, in
the field of Ephron the sonne of Zohar the Hittite, which is before Mamre;
10The field which Abraham purchased of the sonnes of Heth: there was
Abraham buried, and Sarah his wife.
11¶ And it came to passe after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his
sonne Isaac, and Isaac dwelt by the well Lahai-roi.
12¶ Now these are the generations of Ishmael Abrahams sonne, whom
Hagar the Egyptian Sarahs handmayd, bare vnto Abraham:
13And these are the names of the sonnes of Ishmael, by their names,
according to their generations; The first borne of Ishmael, Nebaioth, and
Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,
14And Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa,
15Hadar, and Tema, Ietur, Naphish, and Kedemah.
16These are the sonnes of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their
townes and by their castels; twelue princes according to their nations.
17And these are the yeeres of the life of Ishmael; an hundred and thirty and
seuen yeeres: and he gaue vp the ghost and died, and was gathered vnto
his people.
18And they dwelt from Hauilah vnto Shur, that is before Egypt, as thou
goest towards Assyria: and hee died in the presence of all his brethren.
19¶ And these are the generations of Isaac, Abrahams sonne: Abraham
begate Isaac.
20And Isaac was fortie yeeres old when hee tooke Rebekah to wife, the
daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padan Aram, the sister to Laban the
Syrian.
21And Isaac intreated the LORD for his wife, because she was barren: and
the LORD was intreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceiued.
22And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so,
why am I thus? and shee went to enquire of the LORD.
23And the LORD said vnto her, Two nations are in thy wombe, and two
maner of people shall be separated from thy bowels: and the one people
shalbe stronger then the other people: and the elder shall serue the yonger.
24¶ And when her dayes to be deliuered were fulfilled, behold, there were
twinnes in her wombe.
25And the first came out red, all ouer like an hairy garment: and they called
his name, Esau.
26And after that came his brother out, and his hand tooke holde on Esaus
heele; and his name was called Iacob: and Isaac was threescore yeres old,
when shee bare them.
27And the boyes grew; and Esau was a cunning hunter, a man of the fielde:
and Iacob was a plaine man, dwelling in tents.
28And Isaac loued Esau, because he did eate of his venison: but Rebekah
loued Iacob.
29¶ And Iacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and hee was
faint.
30And Esau said to Iacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red
pottage: for I am faint; therefore was his name called Edom.
31And Iacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright.
32And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this
birthright doe to me?
33And Iacob said, Sweare to mee this day: and he sware to him: and he
sold his birthright vnto Iacob.
34Then Iacob gaue Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eate and
drinke, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.
