62Meanwhile, Isaac, whose home was in the
Negev, had returned from Beer-lahai-roi. 63One
evening as he was walking and meditating in the
fields, he looked up and saw the camels coming.
64When Rebekah looked up and saw Isaac, she
quickly dismounted from her camel. 65 “Who is
that man walking through the fields to meet us?”
she asked the servant.
And he replied, “It is my master.” So Rebekah
covered her face with her veil. 66Then the servant told Isaac everything he had done.
67And Isaac brought Rebekah into his mother
Sarah’s tent, and she became his wife. He loved
her deeply, and she was a special comfort to him
after the death of his mother.
Abraham married another wife, whose name was
Keturah. 2 She gave birth to Zimran, Jokshan,
Medan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuah. 3Jokshan was
the father of Sheba and Dedan. Dedan’s descendants were the Asshurites, Letushites, and Leummites. 4 Midian’s sons were Ephah, Epher,
Hanoch, Abida, and Eldaah. These were all descendants of Abraham through Keturah.
5Abraham gave everything he owned to his
son Isaac. 6But before he died, he gave gifts to the
sons of his concubines and sent them off to a
land in the east, away from Isaac.
7Abraham lived for 175 years, 8and he died at a
ripe old age, having lived a long and satisfying life.
He breathed his last and joined his ancestors in
death. 9His sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in
the cave of Machpelah, near Mamre, in the field of
Ephron son of Zohar the Hittite. 10This was the
field Abraham had purchased from the Hittites
and where he had buried his wife Sarah. 11After
Abraham’s death, God blessed his son Isaac, who
settled near Beer-lahai-roi in the Negev.
Pay attention to the gifts your parents or
grandparents pass on to you. ASK THEM
TO TELL YOU STORIES ABOUT EACH OF
THEM. These things might not seem special now, but someday you’ll treasure them.
The Death of Abraham
is the account of the family of Ishmael,
the son of Abraham through Hagar, Sarah’s
Egyptian servant. 13Here is a list, by their names
and clans, of Ishmael’s descendants: The oldest
was Nebaioth, followed by Kedar, Adbeel,
Mibsam, 14Mishma, Dumah, Massa, 15 Hadad,
Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah. 16These
twelve sons of Ishmael became the founders of
twelve tribes named after them, listed according
to the places they settled and camped. 17Ishmael
lived for 137 years. Then he breathed his last
and joined his ancestors in death. 18Ishmael’s
descendants occupied the region from Havilah
