Gn 25:4And the sons of Midian: Ephah and Epher and Hanoch and Abida and Eldaah. All these were the sons of Keturah.

Gn 25:5And Abraham gave all that he had to Isaac.

Gn 25:6But to the sons of the concubines that Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts. And he sent them away from Isaac his son, while he was still living, eastward to the east country.

Gn 25:7And these are the days of the years of Abraham’s life which he lived, one hundred seventy-five years.

Gn 25:8And Abraham expired and died in a good old age, an old man and full of days, and he was gathered to his people.

Gn 25:9And Isaac and Ishmael his sons buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar the Hittite, which faces Mamre,

Gn 25:10The field which Abraham purchased of the children of Heth; there Abraham was buried with Sarah his wife.

Gn 25:11And after the death of Abraham, God blessed Isaac his son. And Isaac dwelt by Beer-lahai-roi.

Gn 25:12Now these are the generations of Ishmael, Abraham’s son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah’s female servant, bore to Abraham.

Gn 25:18And they dwelt from Havilah to Shur, which faces Egypt, as you go toward Assyria. He settled down opposite all his brothers.

Gn 25:20And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah, the daughter of Bethuel the Aramaean of Paddan-aram, the sister of Laban the Aramaean, to be his wife.

Gn 25:21And Isaac entreated Jehovah for his wife because she was barren. And Jehovah was entreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.

Gn 25:22And the children struggled with each other within her. And she said, If it is so, why am I like this? And she went to inquire of Jehovah.

Gn 25:23And Jehovah said to her,
Two nations are in your womb, / And two peoples shall be separated from your bowels. / And the one people shall be stronger than the other people. / And the older shall serve the younger.

Gn 25:24And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.

Gn 25:25And the first came forth red, all over like a hairy garment; and they called his name Esau.

Gn 25:26And after that his brother came forth, and his hand was holding on to Esau’s heel, so his name was called Jacob. And Isaac was sixty years old when she bore them.

Gn 25:27And when the boys grew up, Esau became a skillful hunter, a man of the field; but Jacob was a quiet man, dwelling in tents.

Gn 25:28Now Isaac loved Esau because he had a taste for game, but Rebekah loved Jacob.

Gn 25:29And Jacob cooked a stew. And Esau came in from the field, and he was faint.

Gn 25:30And Esau said to Jacob, Let me swallow down some of the red stew, that red stew there, for I am faint. Therefore his name was called Edom.

Gn 25:31And Jacob said, First sell me your birthright.

Gn 25:32And Esau said, I am now about to die. Of what use then is this birthright to me?

Gn 25:33And Jacob said, First swear to me. And he swore to him and sold his birthright to Jacob.

Gn 25:34And Jacob gave Esau bread and lentil stew, and he ate and drank and rose up and went away. Thus Esau despised his birthright.
