Genesis 25

Thomson(i) 1 Now Abraham had taken another wife, whose name was Chettura 2 and she bore to him Zembran and Jesan and Madal and Madiam and Jesbok and Soie. 3 And Jesan begat Saba and Dedan. And the children of Dedan were Assurieim and Latusieim and Laomeim. 4 And the children of Madiam were Gephar and Apheir and Enoch and Abeida and Eldaga. All these were children of Chettura. 5 But Abraham gave to his son Isaak all his possessions, 6 and to the children of his concubines Abraham gave gifts and sent them, while he was yet living, towards the east, into the eastern country from his son Isaak. 7 Now these were the years of the days of Abraham's life which he lived, one hundred and seventy five years. 8 And Abraham declining died in a good old age, an old man and full of days and he was added to his people. 9 And his sons Isaak and Ismael buried him in the double cave in the field of Ephron the son of Saar the Chettite, which is over against Mambre; 10 in the field and the cave which Abraham bought of the children of Chet, there they buried Abraham with Sarah his wife. 11 And after the death of Abraham God blessed his son Isaak; and Isaak dwelt at the well of Vision. 12 Now these are the generations of Abraham's son Ismael whom Agar the Egyptian, Sarah's maid, bore to Abraham; 13 and these are the names of the children of Ismael according to the names of his families. The first born of Ismael was Nabaioth, then Kedar and Nabdael and Massam 14 and Masma and Duma and Masse 15 and Choddan and Thaiman and Jetur and Naphes and Kedma. 16 These are the children of Ismael and these are their names in their tents and in their habitations; twelve chiefs of their respective nations. 17 And these were the years of the life of Ismael, one hundred and thirty seven years, and he declining died and was added to his race. 18 Now he inhabited the country from Evilat to Sour which is in front of Egypt, all the way to the Assyrians. In front of all his brethren was his habitation. 19 And these are the generations of Isaak the son of Abraham. Abraham begot Isaak. 20 And Isaak was forty years old when he took to wife Rebekka the daughter of Bathuel the Syrian of Syro Mesopotamia the sister of Laban the Syrian. 21 And Isaak intreated the Lord for Rebekka his wife because she was barren, and the Lord hearkened to him; And Rebekka his wife conceived 22 and the children struggled within her and she said; If it is to be so with me, what doth this portend? So she went to inquire of the Lord. 23 And the Lord said to her, two nations are in thy womb and two peoples shall be separated from thy belly, and the one people will excel the other and the elder shall serve the younger. 24 So when her days to be delivered were fulfilled there were twins in her womb. 25 And the first born came forth red all over hairy like a hide and she called his name Esau; 26 and after that came forth his brother and his hand had hold of Esau's heel, and she called his name Jacob. Now Isaak was sixty years old when Rebekka bore them. 27 And when they grew up to be young men, Esau was a man skilled in hunting and fond of the field; but Jacob was a man of plain manners and lived at home. 28 And Isaak loved Esau, because his game was his food; But Rebekka loved Jacob. 29 Now when Jacob was boiling pottage Esau came from the field fainty. 30 And Esau said to Jacob, Let me taste some of that red pottage, for I am fainty. For this cause his name was called Edom. 31 And Jacob said to Esau, give me this day in exchange thy rights of primogeniture. 32 And Esau said, Lo! I am going to die, what then are these rights of primogeniture to me? 33 And Jacob said to him, Swear now to me. So he swore to him. Thus were Esau's rights of primogeniture transferred to Jacob. 34 Then Jacob gave Esau bread and lentil pottage. And when he had eaten and drunk he arose and went away. Thus did Esau undervalue the rights of primogeniture.
