Genesis 25 ©
The sons of Abraham by Keturah. The division of his goods. His age, death, and burial. God blesseth Isaac. The generations of Ishmael, his age, and death. Isaac's descent and alliance by marriage. Rebekah 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. The birth of Esau and Jacob. The difference of their life and manners. Esau selleth his birthright to Jacob.
And the sons of Midian; eEphah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abida, and Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah.
But unto the sons of the gconcubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts, and hsent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto ithe east country.
And these are the days of the years of Abraham's life which he lived, an hundred threescore and fifteen years.
And Mishma, and vDumah, and Massa,
These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their towns, and by their castles; xtwelve princes according to their nations.
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 ygathered unto his people.
¶And these are the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son: bAbraham begat Isaac:
And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife, cthe daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of dPadan-aram, ethe sister to Laban the Syrian.
And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she hwent to enquire of the LORD.
¶And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.
And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau.
And after that came his brother out, and khis hand took hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore years old when she bare them.
And Isaac loved Esau, because 3he did eat of his venison: but Rebekah loved Jacob.
¶And Jacob *sod *pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was faint:
And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, 4with that same red *pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called 5Edom.
And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright.
And Esau said, Behold, I am 6at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?
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.
