25a-Abraham Died

Abraham took another wife, and her name was Keturah. She gave birth to six sons, one of which was Midian. We will read about some Midianites soon.

Joseph’s brothers sold him to a caravan of Midianites. And the Midianites sold him in Egypt to Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh’s. (Genesis 37:28,36)

Moses fled from Egypt, from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of Midian. (Exodus 2:15)

Abraham gave all that he had to Isaac. Abraham gave gifts to the sons of the concubines and sent them eastward away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived. 

Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah as wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padan Aram, the sister of Laban the Syrian. 

Isaac entreated the Lord for his wife, because she was barren: and the Lord was entreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived. (25:21)

Abraham’s lived 175 years. Then he gave up the ghost and died in a good old age, an old man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people. His sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field Abraham purchased from Ephron of the sons of Heth. (Genesis 23)

Isaac was 75 years old when Abraham died, and Ishmael was 89 years old.

After the death of Abraham, God blessed his son Isaac; and Isaac dwelt by the well Lahai–roi.
