The Death of Abraham

25:1 Abraham had taken1 another2 wife, named Keturah. 25:2 She bore him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuah. 25:3 Jokshan became the father of Sheba and Dedan.3 The descendants of Dedan were the Asshurites, Letushites, and Leummites. 25:4 The sons of Midian were Ephah, Epher, Hanoch, Abida, and Eldaah. All these were descendants4 of Keturah.

25:5 Everything he owned Abraham left to his son Isaac. 25:6 But while he was still alive, Abraham gave gifts to the sons of his concubines5 and sent them off to the east, away from his son Isaac.6

25:7 Abraham lived a total of7 175 years. 25:8 Then Abraham breathed his last and died at a good old age, an old man who had lived a full life.8 He joined his ancestors.9 25:9 His sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah10 near Mamre, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar, the Hethite. 25:10 This was the field Abraham had purchased from the sons of Heth.11 There Abraham was buried with his wife Sarah. 25:11 After Abraham’s death, God blessed12 his son Isaac. Isaac lived near Beer Lahai Roi.13
