Abraham and Keturah
(1 Chronicles 1:32–33)

1And Abraham will add and take a wife; and her name Keturah. 2And she will bring forth to him, Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah. 3And Jokshan begat Sheba, and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim, and Letushim and Leummim. 4And the sons of Midian; Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abidah, and Eldaah. All these the sons of Keturah. 5And Abraham will give all which is to him to Isaak. 6And to the sons of the concubines which were to Abraham, Abraham gave gifts, and he will send them away from Isaak his son (in his yet living) from the east to the east land.

The Death of Abraham

7And these the days of the years of the life of Abraham which he lived, a hundred years and seventy years and five years. 8And Abraham shall expire, and shall die in a good old age, and being filled; and he shall be added to his people. 9And his sons Isaak and Ishmael will bury him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron, son of Zohar the Hittite, which is at the face of Mamm; 10The field which Abraham bought from the sons of Heth: there Abraham was buried, and Sarah his wife. 11And it shall be after the death of Abraham, God will bless Isaak his son; and Isaak will dwell by the well at the living vision.

The Descendants of Ishmael
(1 Chronicles 1:28–31)

12These the generations of Ishmael, son of Abraham, whom Hagar brought forth, the Egyptian, Sarah's maid, to Abraham. 13And the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names according their generations: the first-born of Ishmael, Nebajoth, and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam, 14And Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa, 15Hadar, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah. 16These the sons of Ishmael, and these their names, in their villages, and in their fortresses; twelve princes, according to their nation. 17And these the years of the life of Ishmael: a hundred years, and thirty years and seven years: and he will expire and die; and he will be added to his People. 18And they will dwell from Havilah, even to Shur, which is upon the face of Egypt, in thy going to Assyria: and he fell before the face of all his brethren.

Jacob and Esau
(Malachi 1:1–5; Romans 9:6–29)

19And these the generations of Isaak, son of Abraham: Abraham begetting Isaak. 20And Isaak shall be the son of forty years in his taking Rebekah, daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padan Aram, sister of Laban the Syrian, to him for a wife. 21And Isaak will supplicate to Jehovah for his wife, because she was barren: and Jehovah will be supplicated for him, and Rebekah his wife will conceive. 22And the sons will struggle within her: and she will say. If so, wherefore am I thus? And she will go to inquire of Jehovah.

23And Jehovah will say to her, Two nations are in thy womb, and two peoples shall be separated from thy belly: and a people shall be strong above a people, and the great shall serve the small.

24And her days shall be completed to bring forth; and behold, twins in her belly. 25And the first shall come forth red, wholly as a mantle of hair: and they will call his name Esau. 26And after this, his brother will come forth, and his hand having laid hold upon Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaak the son of sixty years in her bringing them forth.

27And the boys will become great; and Esau will be a man knowing the chase, a man of the country; and Jacob an upright man, dwelling in tents. 28And Isaak will love Esau for the chase in his mouth: and Rebekah loved Jacob.

Esau Sells His Birthright

29And Jacob will boil a boiling, and Esau will come from the country, and he faint. 30And Esau will say to Jacob, Give me now to eat from the red; this red, for I faint: for this he called his name Edom. 31And Jacob will say, Sell this day thy birth-right to me. 32And Esau will say, Behold, I am going to die, and what to me this birthright? 33And Jacob will say, Swear to me this day: and he will swear to him: and he will sell his birth-right to Jacob. 34And Jacob gave Esau food, and the boiling of lentiles; and he will eat and drink and will rise and go forth: and Esau will despise the birth-right.
