Genesis 25 (WEBP)

[1] Abraham took another wife, and her name was Keturah.
[2] She bore him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuah.
[3] Jokshan became the father of Sheba, and Dedan. The sons of Dedan were Asshurim, Letushim, and Leummim.
[4] The sons of Midian were Ephah, Epher, Hanoch, Abida, and Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah.
[5] Abraham gave all that he had to Isaac,
[6] but Abraham gave gifts to the sons of Abraham’s concubines. While he still lived, he sent them away from Isaac his son, eastward, to the east country.
[7] These are the days of the years of Abraham’s life which he lived: one hundred seventy-five years.
[8] Abraham gave up his spirit, and died at a good old age, an old man, and full of years, and was gathered to his people.
[9] Isaac and Ishmael, his sons, buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron, the son of Zohar the Hittite, which is near Mamre,
[10] the field which Abraham purchased from the children of Heth. Abraham was buried there with Sarah, his wife.
[11] After the death of Abraham, God blessed Isaac, his son. Isaac lived by Beer Lahai Roi.
[12] Now this is the history of the generations of Ishmael, Abraham’s son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah’s servant, bore to Abraham.
[13] These are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to the order of their birth: the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebaioth, then Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam,
[14] Mishma, Dumah, Massa,
[15] Hadad, Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah.
[16] These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their villages, and by their encampments: twelve princes, according to their nations.
[17] These are the years of the life of Ishmael: one hundred thirty-seven years. He gave up his spirit and died, and was gathered to his people.
[18] They lived from Havilah to Shur that is before Egypt, as you go toward Assyria. He lived opposite all his relatives.
[19] This is the history of the generations of Isaac, Abraham’s son. Abraham became the father of Isaac.
[20] Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Paddan Aram, the sister of Laban the Syrian, to be his wife.
[21] Isaac entreated Yahweh for his wife, because she was barren. Yahweh was entreated by him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.
[22] The children struggled together within her. She said, “If it is like this, why do I live?” She went to inquire of Yahweh.
[23] Yahweh said to her, “Two nations are in your womb. Two peoples will be separated from your body. The one people will be stronger than the other people. The elder will serve the younger.”
[24] When her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.
[25] The first came out red all over, like a hairy garment. They named him Esau.
[26] After that, his brother came out, and his hand had hold on Esau’s heel. He was named Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when she bore them.
[27] The boys grew. Esau was a skillful hunter, a man of the field. Jacob was a quiet man, living in tents.
[28] Now Isaac loved Esau, because he ate his venison. Rebekah loved Jacob.
[29] Jacob boiled stew. Esau came in from the field, and he was famished.
[30] Esau said to Jacob, “Please feed me with some of that red stew, for I am famished.” Therefore his name was called Edom.°
[31] Jacob said, “First, sell me your birthright.”
[32] Esau said, “Behold, I am about to die. What good is the birthright to me?”
[33] Jacob said, “Swear to me first.” He swore to him. He sold his birthright to Jacob.
[34] Jacob gave Esau bread and lentil stew. He ate and drank, rose up, and went his way. So Esau despised his birthright.

Genesis 25:30 “Edom” means “red”.

Genesis 25 (KJVS)

[1] Then again H3254 (8686) Abraham H85 took H3947 (8799) a wife H802, and her name H8034 [was] Keturah H6989.
[2] And she bare H3205 (8799) him Zimran H2175, and Jokshan H3370, and Medan H4091, and Midian H4080, and Ishbak H3435, and Shuah H7744.
[3] And Jokshan H3370 begat H3205 (8804) Sheba H7614, and Dedan H1719. And the sons H1121 of Dedan H1719 were Asshurim H805, and Letushim H3912, and Leummim H3817.
[4] And the sons H1121 of Midian H4080; Ephah H5891, and Epher H6081, and Hanoch H2585, and Abida H28, and Eldaah H420. All these [were] the children H1121 of Keturah H6989.
[5] And Abraham H85 gave H5414 (8799) all that he had unto Isaac H3327.
[6] But unto the sons H1121 of the concubines H6370, which Abraham H85 had, Abraham H85 gave H5414 (8804) gifts H4979, and sent them away H7971 (8762) from Isaac H3327 his son H1121, while he yet lived H2416, eastward H6924, unto the east H6924 country H776.
[7] And these [are] the days H3117 of the years H8141 of Abraham’s H85 life H2416 which he lived H2425 (8804), an hundred H3967 H8141 threescore and fifteen H7657 H8141 H2568 years H8141.
[8] Then Abraham H85 gave up the ghost H1478 (8799), and died H4191 (8799) in a good H2896 old age H7872, an old man H2205, and full H7649 [of years]; and was gathered H622 (8735) to his people H5971.
[9] And his sons H1121 Isaac H3327 and Ishmael H3458 buried H6912 (8799) him in the cave H4631 of Machpelah H4375, in the field H7704 of Ephron H6085 the son H1121 of Zohar H6714 the Hittite H2850, which [is] before H6440 Mamre H4471;
[10] The field H7704 which Abraham H85 purchased H7069 (8804) of the sons H1121 of Heth H2845: there was Abraham H85 buried H6912 (8795), and Sarah H8283 his wife H802.
[11] And it came to pass after H310 the death H4194 of Abraham H85, that God H430 blessed H1288 (8762) his son H1121 Isaac H3327; and Isaac H3327 dwelt H3427 (8799) by H5973 the well Lahairoi H883.
[12] Now these [are] the generations H8435 of Ishmael H3458, Abraham’s H85 son H1121, whom Hagar H1904 the Egyptian H4713, Sarah’s H8283 handmaid H8198, bare H3205 (8804) unto Abraham H85:
[13] And these [are] the names H8034 of the sons H1121 of Ishmael H3458, by their names H8034, according to their generations H8435: the firstborn H1060 of Ishmael H3458, Nebajoth H5032; and Kedar H6938, and Adbeel H110, and Mibsam H4017,
[14] And Mishma H4927, and Dumah H1746, and Massa H4854,
[15] Hadar H2316, and Tema H8485, Jetur H3195, Naphish H5305, and Kedemah H6929:
[16] These [are] the sons H1121 of Ishmael H3458, and these [are] their names H8034, by their towns H2691, and by their castles H2918; twelve H8147 H6240 princes H5387 according to their nations H523.
[17] And these [are] the years H8141 of the life H2416 of Ishmael H3458, an hundred H3967 H8141 and thirty H7970 H8141 and seven H7651 years H8141: and he gave up the ghost H1478 (8799) and died H4191 (8799); and was gathered H622 (8735) unto his people H5971.
[18] And they dwelt H7931 (8799) from Havilah H2341 unto Shur H7793, that [is] before H6440 Egypt H4714, as thou goest H935 (8800) toward Assyria H804: [and] he died H5307 (8804) in the presence H6440 of all his brethren H251.
[19] And these [are] the generations H8435 of Isaac H3327, Abraham’s H85 son H1121: Abraham H85 begat H3205 (8689) Isaac H3327:
[20] And Isaac H3327 was forty H705 years H8141 old H1121 when he took H3947 (8800) Rebekah H7259 to wife H802, the daughter H1323 of Bethuel H1328 the Syrian H761 of Padanaram H6307, the sister H269 to Laban H3837 the Syrian H761.
[21] And Isaac H3327 intreated H6279 (8799) the LORD H3068 for H5227 his wife H802, because she [was] barren H6135: and the LORD H3068 was intreated H6279 (8735) of him, and Rebekah H7259 his wife H802 conceived H2029 (8799).
[22] And the children H1121 struggled together H7533 (8704) within her H7130; and she said H559 (8799), If [it be] so, why [am] I thus H2088? And she went H3212 (8799) to enquire H1875 (8800) of the LORD H3068.
[23] And the LORD H3068 said H559 (8799) unto her, Two H8147 nations H1471 [are] in thy womb H990, and two manner H8147 of people H3816 shall be separated H6504 (8735) from thy bowels H4578; and [the one] people H3816 shall be stronger H553 (8799) than [the other] people H3816; and the elder H7227 shall serve H5647 (8799) the younger H6810.
[24] And when her days H3117 to be delivered H3205 (8800) were fulfilled H4390 (8799), behold, [there were] twins H8380 in her womb H990.
[25] And the first H7223 came out H3318 (8799) red H132, all over like an hairy H8181 garment H155; and they called H7121 (8799) his name H8034 Esau H6215.
[26] And after H310 that came H3318 his brother H251 out H3318 (8804), and his hand H3027 took hold H270 (8802) on Esau’s H6215 heel H6119; and his name H8034 was called H7121 (8799) Jacob H3290: and Isaac H3327 [was] threescore H8346 years H8141 old H1121 when she bare H3205 (8800) them.
[27] And the boys H5288 grew H1431 (8799): and Esau H6215 was a cunning H3045 (8802) hunter H6718, a man H376 of the field H7704; and Jacob H3290 [was] a plain H8535 man H376, dwelling H3427 (8802) in tents H168.
[28] And Isaac H3327 loved H157 (8799) Esau H6215, because he did eat H6310 of [his] venison H6718: but Rebekah H7259 loved H157 (8802) Jacob H3290.
[29] And Jacob H3290 sod H2102 (8686) pottage H5138: and Esau H6215 came H935 (8799) from the field H7704, and he [was] faint H5889:
[30] And Esau H6215 said H559 (8799) to Jacob H3290, Feed H3938 (8685) me, I pray thee, with H4480 that same H122 red H122 [pottage]; for I [am] faint H5889: therefore was his name H8034 called H7121 (8804) Edom H123.
[31] And Jacob H3290 said H559 (8799), Sell H4376 (8798) me this day H3117 thy birthright H1062.
[32] And Esau H6215 said H559 (8799), Behold, I [am] at the point H1980 (8802) to die H4191 (8800): and what profit shall this birthright H1062 do to me?
[33] And Jacob H3290 said H559 (8799), Swear H7650 (8734) to me this day H3117; and he sware H7650 (8735) unto him: and he sold H4376 (8799) his birthright H1062 unto Jacob H3290.
[34] Then Jacob H3290 gave H5414 (8804) Esau H6215 bread H3899 and pottage H5138 of lentiles H5742; and he did eat H398 (8799) and drink H8354 (8799), and rose up H6965 (8799), and went his way H3212 (8799): thus Esau H6215 despised H959 (8799) [his] birthright H1062.

Young’s Literal Translation

Genesis 25 (YLT)

[1] And Abraham addeth and taketh a wife, and her name is Keturah;
[2] and she beareth to him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah.
[3] And Jokshan hath begotten Sheba and Dedan; and the sons of Dedan were Asshurim, and Letushim, and Leummim;
[4] and the sons of Midian are Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abidah, and Eldaah: all these are sons of Keturah.
[5] And Abraham giveth all that he hath to Isaac;
[6] and to the sons of the concubines whom Abraham hath, Abraham hath given gifts, and sendeth them away from Isaac his son (in his being yet alive) eastward, unto the east country.
[7] And these are the days of the years of the life of Abraham, which he lived, a hundred and seventy and five years;
[8] and Abraham expireth, and dieth in a good old age, aged and satisfied, and is gathered unto his people.
[9] And Isaac and Ishmael his sons bury him at the cave of Machpelah, at the field of Ephron, son of Zoar the Hittite, which is before Mamre-
[10] the field which Abraham bought from the sons of Heth-there hath Abraham been buried, and Sarah his wife.
[11] And it cometh to pass after the death of Abraham, that God blesseth Isaac his son; and Isaac dwelleth by the Well of the Living One, my Beholder.
[12] And these are births of Ishmael, Abraham’s son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah’s handmaid, hath borne to Abraham;
[13] and these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their births: first-born 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 sons of Ishmael, and these their names, by their villages, and by their towers; twelve princes according to their peoples.
[17] And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, a hundred and thirty and seven years; and he expireth, and dieth, and is gathered unto his people;
[18] and they tabernacle from Havilah unto Shur, which is before Egypt, in thy going towards Asshur; in the presence of all his brethren hath he fallen.
[19] And these are births of Isaac, Abraham’s son: Abraham hath begotten Isaac;
[20] and Isaac is a son of forty years in his taking Rebekah, daughter of Bethuel the Aramaean, from Padan-Aram, sister of Laban the Aramaean, to him for a wife.
[21] And Isaac maketh entreaty to Jehovah before his wife, for she is barren: and Jehovah is entreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceiveth,
[22] and the children struggle together within her, and she saith, ‘If it is right-why am I thus?’ and she goeth to seek Jehovah.
[23] And Jehovah saith to her, ‘Two nations are in thy womb, and two peoples from thy bowels are parted; and the one people than the other people is stronger; and the elder doth serve the younger.’
[24] And her days to bear are fulfilled, and lo, twins are in her womb;
[25] and the first cometh out all red as a hairy robe, and they call his name Esau;
[26] and afterwards hath his brother come out, and his hand is taking hold on Esau’s heel, and one calleth his name Jacob; and Isaac is a son of sixty years in her bearing them.
[27] And the youths grew, and Esau is a man acquainted with hunting, a man of the field; and Jacob is a plain man, inhabiting tents;
[28] and Isaac loveth Esau, for his hunting is in his mouth; and Rebekah is loving Jacob.
[29] And Jacob boileth pottage, and Esau cometh in from the field, and he is weary;
[30] and Esau saith unto Jacob, ‘Let me eat, I pray thee, some of this red red thing, for I am weary;’ therefore hath one called his name Edom Red;
[31] and Jacob saith, ‘Sell to-day thy birthright to me.’
[32] And Esau saith, ‘Lo, I am going to die, and what is this to me-birthright?’
[33] and Jacob saith, ‘Swear to me to-day:’ and he sweareth to him, and selleth his birthright to Jacob;
[34] and Jacob hath given to Esau bread and pottage of lentiles, and he eateth, and drinketh, and riseth, and goeth; and Esau despiseth the birthright.
