THEN again Abraham took a
wife, and her name was Ke-
turah.

2 And "she bare him Zimran,
and Jokshan, and Hedon, and
Midian, and Ishbak, and Shnali.

3 And Jokshan begat Sheba, and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshnrim, and Letushim, and Leummim.

4 And the sons of Midian; Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abidah, and Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah.

5 f And b Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac.

6 But unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts, and cscnt them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto d the east country.

7 And these are the days of the years of Abraham's life which he lived, a hundred threescore am" fifteen years.

8 Then Abraham gave up the ghost, and edied in a good old age, an old man, and full of years; and f was gathered to his people.

9 And s his sous Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Maehpelah, in the field of Ephrou the son of Zohar the Ilittite, which is before Mamre;

10 ""The field which Abraham purchased of the sons of Heth: 'there was Abraham buried, and Sarah his wife.

11 *1 And it came to pass after the death of Abraham, that God blessed his son Isaac; and Isaac dwelt by the k well Lahai-roi.

12 IT Now these are the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son, 'whom Ilagar the Egyptian, Sarah's handmaid, bare unto Abraham:

13 And "these are the names of the 6ons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebajoth; and Kcdar, and Adbeel, and Mibsaiu,

14 And Miskma, and Dumah, and Mas so,

15 II Hadar, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah:

16 These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their towns, and by their castles; "twelve princes according to their nations.

17 And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, a hundred and thirty and seven years: and ° he gave up the ghost and died, and was gathered uuto his people.

18 PAnd they dwelt from Havilah unto Sbur, that is before Egypt, as thou goest toward Assyria: and he t died i in the presence of all his brethren.

19 TAnd these are the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son: 'Abraham begat Isaac:

20 And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife, 'the daughter of Bethucl the Syrian of Padan-aram, 'the sister to Labau the Syrian.

21 And Isaac entreated the Lord for his wife, because she was barren: u and the Lord was entreated of him, and "Rebekah his wife conceived.

22 And the children struggled
ditogether within her; and she

said, If it be so, why am I thus?
*Aud she went to inquire of
the Lord.

23 And the Lord said unto her,
t Two nations are in thy womb,
and two manner of people shall
be separated from thy bowels;
and 'the one people shall be
stronger than the other people;
and athe elder shall serve the
younger.

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

25 And the first came out red, ball over like a hairy garment; and they called his name Esau.

26 Aud after that came his brother out, and c his hand took hold on Esau's heel; and dhis name was called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore years old when she bare them.

27 And the boys grew: and Esau was ea cunning hunter, a man of the field; and Jacob teas fa plain inau, s dwelling in tents.

28 And Isaac loved Esau, because the did heat of hit venison: I but Rebekah loved Jacob.

29 M And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was faint:

30 And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, twith that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called II Kdora.

31 And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright.

32 And Esau said, Behold, I am tat the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?

33 And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he 8ware unto him: and khe sold his birthright unto Jacob.

34 Then Jacob Kavc Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and 1 he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.

AND there was a famine
the land, besides "the first
famine that was in the days
of Abraham. And Isaac went
unto b Abimelech king of the
Philistines unto Gerar.

2 And the LORD appeared up
to him, and said, Go not down father's servants had digged in

which I shall tell thee of. the Philistines had stopped them,

• I will be with thee, and twill 16 And Abimcleeh said unto bless thee; for unto thee, and Isaac, Go from us; for 1 thou art

ah; because she 0 was fair to look upon.

8 And it came to pass, when he had been there a long time, that Abimelech king of the Philistines looked out at a window, and saw, and, behold, Isaac was sporting with Rebekah his wife.

9 And Abimelech called Isaac, and said, Behold, of a surety she is thy wife: and how saidst thou, She is my sister? And Isaac said unto him, Because I said, Lest I die for her.

10 And Abimelech said, What is this thou hast done unto us? one of the people might lightly have lain with thy wife, and Python shouldest have brought guiltiness upon us.

11 And Abimelech charged all his people, saying, He that itoucheth this man or his wife shall surely be put to death.

12 Then Isaac sowed in that land, and t received in the same year ra hundredfold: and the Lord * blessed him.

13 And the man 'waxed great, and t went forward, and grew until he became very great:

14 For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of IIservants: and the Philistines u envied him.

15 For all the wells "which his

5 1 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.

6 If And Isaac dwelt in Gerar.

7 And the men of the place asked him of his wife; and "»he said, She is my sister: for 'the feared to say, She is my wife; lest, said he, the men of the place should kill me for Rebek

18 And Isaac digged again the wells of water, which they had digged in the days of Abraham his father; for the Philistines had stopped them after the death of Abraham: rand he called their names after the names by which his father had called them.

19 And Isaac's servants digged in the valley, and found there a well of t springing water.

20 And the herdmcn of Gerar zdid strive with Isaac's herdmen, saying, The water is ours: and he called the name of the well

21 And they digged another well, and strove for that also: and he called the name of it liSitnah.

22 And he removed from thence, and digged another well; and for that they strove not: and he called the name of it IIRehoboth; and he said, For now the Lord hath made room for us, and we shall a be fruitful in the land.

23 And he went up from thence to Bcer-6heba.

24 And the Lord appeared unto him the same night, and said, bI am the God of Abraham thy father: cfear not, for il am with thee, and will bless thee, and multiply thy seed for my servant Abraham's sake.

25 And he ebuilded an altar there, and 'called upon the name of the Lord, and pitched his tent there: and there Isaac's servants digged a well.

26 1[ Then Abimelech went to him from Gerar, and Ahuzzath one of his friends, stand Phichol the chief captain of his army.

27 And Isaac said unto them, Wherefore come ye to me, seeing hye hate me, and have 'sent me away from you?

28 And they said, t We saw certainly that the Lord * was with thee: and we said, Let there be now an oath betwixt us, even betwixt us and thee, and let us make a covenant with thee;

29 tThat thou wilt do us no hurt, as we have not touched thee, and as we have done unto thee nothing but good, and have sent thee away in peace: 'thou art now the blessed of the Lord.

30 m And he made them a feast, and they did eat and drink.

31 And they rose up betimes in the morning, and "sware one to another: and Isaac sent them away, and they departed from him in peace.

32 And it came to pass the same day, that Isaac's servants came, and told him concerning the well which they had digged, and said unto him, We have found water.

33 And he called it UShebah: therefore the name of the city to II Beer-sheba unto this day.

34 IT 'And Esau was forty years old when he took to wife Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite,

and Bashemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite: 35 Which were ta grief of mind unto Isaac and to Rebekah.

AND it came to pass, that when Isaac was old, and •his eyes were dim, so that he could not see, he called Esau his eldest son, and said unto him, My son: and he said unto him, Behold, here am I.

2 And he said, Behold now, I am old, I * know not the day of my death:

3 cNow therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and t take me some venison;

4 And make me savoury meat, such its I love, and bring it to me, that I may eat; that my soul dmay bless thee before "I die.

5 And Rebekah heard when Isaac spake to Esau his son. And Esau went to the field to hunt for venison, and to bring it.

6 1 And Rebekah spake unto Jacob her son, saying, Behold, I heard thy father speak unto Esau thy brother, saying,

7 Bring me venison, and make me savoury meat, that I may eat, and bless thee before the Lord before my death.

8 Now therefore, my son, ■ obey my voice according to that which I command thee.

9 Go now to the flock, and fetch me from thence two good kids of the goats; and I will make them 'savoury meat for thy father, such as he loveth:

10 And thou shalt bring it to thy father, that he may eat, and that he may bless thee before his death.

11 And Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, Behold, hEsau my brother is a hairy man, and I am a smooth man:

12 My father pcradventure will t feel me, and I shall seem to him as a deceiver; and I shall bring ka curse upon me, and not a blessing.

13 And his mother said unto him, I Upon me be thy curse, my son: only obey my voice, and go fetch me them.

14 And he went, and fetched, and brought them to his mother: and his mother made savoury meat, such as his father loved.

15 And Rebekah took t "goodly raiment of her eldest son Esau, which were with her in the house, and put them upon Jacob her younger son:

16 And she put the skins of the kids of the goats upon his hands, and upon the smooth of his neck:

17 And she gave the savoury meat and the bread, which she had prepared, into the hand of her son Jacob.

18 f And he came unto his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I; who art thou, my son?

19 And Jacob said unto his father, I am Esau thy firstborn; I have done according as thou badest me: arise, I pray thee, sit and eat of my venison, that thy soul may bless me.

20 And Isaac said unto his son, How is it that thou hast found it so quickly, my son? And he said, Because the Lord thy God brought it tto me.

21 And Isaac said unto Jacob, Come near, I pray thee, that I p may feel thee, my son, whether thou be my very son Esau or not.

22 And Jacob went near unto Isaac his father; and he felt him, and said, The voice w Jacob's voice, but the hands are the hands of Esau.

23 And he discerned him not, because ibis hands were hairy, as his brother Esau's hands: so he blessed him.

24 And he said, Art thou my very son Esau? And he said, I am.

25 And he said, Bring it near to me, and I will eat of my son's venison, rthat my soul may bless thee. And he brought it near to him, and he did eat: and he brought him wine, and he drank.

26 And his father Isaac said unto him, Come near now, and kiss me, my son. t

27 And he came near, and kissed him: and he smelled the smell of his raiment, and blessed

him, and said, See, "the smell of my son in as the smell of a field which the Lord hath blessed:

28 Therefore 'God give thee of "the dew of heaven, and wthe fatness of the earth, and * plenty of corn and wine:

29 rLct people serve thee, and nations bow down to thee: be lord over thy brethren, and 'let thy mother's sons bow down to thee: "cursed be every one that curseth thee, and blessed be he that blesseth thee.

30 If And it came to pass, as soon as Isaac had made an end of blessing Jacob, and Jacob was yet scarce gone out from the presence of Isaac his father, that Esau his brother came in from his hunting.

31 And he also had made savoury meat, and brought it unto his father, and said unto his father, Let my father arise, and bcat of his son's venison, that thy soul may bless me.

32 And Isaac his father said upto him, Who art thou? And he said, I am thy son, thy firstborn, Esau.

33 And Isaac t trembled very exceedingly, and said, Who? where is he that hath t taken venison, and brought it me, and I have eaten of all before thou earnest, and have blessed him? yea, c and he shall be blessed.

34 And when Esau heard the words of his father, dhe cried with a great and exceeding bitter cry, and said unto his father, Bless me, even me also, O my father.

35 And he said, Thy brother came with subtilty, and hath taken away thy blessing.

36 And he said, eIs not he rightly named IIJacob? for he hath supplanted me these two times: 'he took away my birthright; and, behold, now he hath taken away my blessing. And he said, Hast thou not reserved a blessing for me?

37 And Isaac answered and said unto Esau, % Behold, I have made him thy lord, and all his brethren have I given to him for servants; and hwith corn and wine have I IIsustained him: and what shall I do now unto thee, my son?

38 And Esau said unto his fa

ther, Hast thou but one blessing, my father? bless me, even me also, O my father. And Esau lifted up his voice, 'and wept.

39 And Isaac his father answered and said unto him, Behold, "thy dwelling shall be lithe fatness of the earth, and of the dew of heaven from above;

40 And by thy sword shalt thou live, and 1 shalt serve thy brother: and mit shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck.

41U And Esau 'hated Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his father blessed him: and Esau said in his heart, "The days of mourning for my father are at hand; Pthen will I slay my brother Jacob.

42 And these words of Esau her elder son were told to Rebekah: and she sent and called Jacob her younger son, and said unto him, Behold, thy brother Esau, as touching thee, doth i comfort himself, purposing to kill thee.

43 Now therefore, my son, obey my voice; and arise, flee thou to Laban my brother no Haran;

44 And tarry with him a few days, until thy brother's fury turn away;

45 Until thy brother's anger turn away from thee, and he forget that which thou hast done to him: then I will send, and fetch thee from thence: why should I be deprived also of you both in one day?

46 And Rebekah said to Isaac, ■ I am weary of my life because of the daughters of Heth: 1 if Jacob take a wife of the daughters of Heth, such as these which are of the daughters of the land, what good shall my life do me?

CHAPTER XXVIII.

AND Isaac called Jacob, and "blessed him, and charged him, and said unto him, bThou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan. 2 c Arise, go to d Padan-aram, to the house ofe Bethuel thy mother's father; and take thee a wife from thence of the daughters of 'Laban thy mother's brother.

3 sAnd God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that thou mayest be ta multitude of people;

4 And give thee hthe blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the laud t' wherein thou art a stranger, which God gave unto Abraham.

5 Aud Isaac 6ent away Jacob: and he went to Padan-aram unto Laban, son of Bethuel the Syrian, the brother of Rebekah, Jacob's and Esau's mother.

6 If When Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob, and sent him away to Padan-aram, to take him a wife from thence; and that as he blessed him he gave him a charge, saying, Thou shalt not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan;

7 And that Jacob obeyed his father and his mother, and was gone to Padan-aram;

8 And Esau seeing kthat the daughters of Canaan t pleased not Isaac his father;

9 Then went Esau unto Ishmael, and took unto the wives which he had 'Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael Abraham's son, ""the sister of Nebajoth, to be his wife.

10 If And Jacob "went out from Beer-sheba, and went toward 0 Haran.

11 And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; arid he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.

12 And he v dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold 9 the angels of God ascending and descending on it.
