Gen.17[ 4] As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. [ 5] Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.

Rom.4[ 16] Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,

Gal.3[ 29] And if ye be Messiah's / Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.



Hagar the Egyptian - Ishmael

Keturah - Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.

In the Chumash, pg. 121 they say Keturah, Abraham remarried Hagar - WRONG!

Keturah - In Gen. Rabbah 61:4 they say This is Hagar, WRONG!


Gen.23[ 19] And after this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife...

Abraham took a wife - Keturah

Abraham's concubine - Keturah קְטוּרָה

Hagar was Sarai's handmaid


Gen.25[1] Then again Abraham took a wife, and her name was Keturah . [2] And she bare him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.
[3] And Jokshan begat Sheba, and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim, and Letushim, and Leummim.[4] And the sons of Midian; Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abida, and Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah.

[5] And Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac.
[6] But unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto the east country.

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

[13] And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebajoth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam, [14] And Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa, [15] 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.

1Chr.1[32] Now the sons of Keturah, Abraham's concubine: she bare Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah. And the sons of Jokshan; Sheba, and Dedan. [33] And the sons of Midian; Ephah, and Epher, and Henoch, and Abida, and Eldaah. All these are the sons of Keturah.

Gen.17[20] And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.

Gen.21[13] And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation, because he is thy seed.

[21] And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran: and his mother took him a wife out of the land of Egypt.


Gen.25[ 6] But unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had , Abraham gave gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto the east country.

Isaac and Rebekah

Gen.25[ 20] And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padan-aram, the sister to Laban the Syrian.

[21] And Isaac intreated the LORD for his wife, because she was barren: and the LORD was intreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.

[22] And the children struggled together within her ; and she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to inquire of the LORD.

[23] And the LORD said unto her, 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 the elder shall serve the younger.

[24] And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.[ 25] And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau.[26 ] And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob : and Isaac was threescore years old when she bare them.
27] And the boys grew: and Esau was a cunning hunter, a man of the field; and Jacob was a plain man, dwelling in tents.
28] And Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of his venison: but Rebekah loved Jacob .
29] 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, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom.
31] And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright.
[32] And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?
[33] And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob.
[34] 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

Gen.27 Jacob's Blessing

[28] Therefore God give thee of the dew of heaven, and the fatness of the earth, and plenty of corn and wine:[29] Let 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. Sounds like what God told Abraham Gen.12 [3 ] And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Gen.27[ 30] 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 eat of his son's venison, that thy soul may bless me.
32] And Isaac his father said unto him, Who art thou? And he said, I am thy son, thy firstborn Esau. [ 34] And when Esau heard the words of his father, he 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, Is not he rightly named Jacob? 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 with corn and wine have I sustained him: and what shall I do now unto thee, my son? [38] And Esau said unto his father, Hast thou but one blessing, my father? bless me, even me also, O my father. And Esau lifted up his voice, and wept.

[41] 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; then 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 comfort himself, purposing to kill thee.

Mal.1[ 1] The burden of the word of the LORD to Israel by Malachi.[2 ] I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob's brother? saith the LORD: yet I loved Jacob,[ 3] And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.

Rom.9[13] As it is written, ( in Mal. 1-3 ) Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.

Heb.12 [16] Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.[17] For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.
