The sons of Joel; Shemaiah his son, Gog his son, Shimei his son,Micah his son, Reaia his son, Baal his son,Beerah his son. And his brethren by their families, when the genealogy of their generations was reckoned, were the chief, Jeiel, and Zechariah, and Bela the son of Azaz, the son of Shema, the son of Joel, who dwelt in Aroer, even unto Nebo and Baal-meon:

In the days of Saul they made war with the Hagarites, who fell by their hand: and they dwelt in their tents throughout all the east land of Gilead. The children of Gad dwelt over against them, in the land of Bashan unto Salchah:

Joel the chief, and Shapham the next, and Jaanai, and Shaphat in Bashan.

They all dwelt in Gilead in Bashan, and in her towns, and in all the suburbs of Sharon, upon their borders.

All these were reckoned by genealogies in the days of Jotham king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam king of Israel.

The sons of Reuben, and the Gadites, and half the tribe of Manasseh had men that were prepared for war with sword, bow and arrow. They were skilled and they numbered many, they made war with the Hagarites, with Jetur, and Nephish, and Nodab. The Hagarites were delivered into their hand, and all that were with them: for they cried to God in the battle, they put their trust in him. And they took away their cattle; of their camels fifty thousand, and of sheep two hundred and fifty thousand, and of asses two thousand, and of men an hundred thousand.

And the children of the half tribe of Manasseh dwelt in the land: they increased from Bashan unto Baal-hermon and Senir, and unto mount Hermon. They transgressed against God, and went a whoring after the gods of the people of the land, whom God destroyed before them. God stirred up the spirit of Pul king of Assyria, and the spirit of Tilgath-pilneser king of Assyria, and he carried them away, even the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh, and brought them unto Halah, and Habor, and Hara, and to the river Gozan, unto this day.

Genesis 25-27

Genesis 25-27

Chapter 25: Descendants of Abraham

Abraham gets married again and marries a woman named Keturah. With Keturah; they have 6 kids with their kids and grandkids:

  • Zimrain
  • Jokshan
    • Sheba
    • Dedan
      • Asshurim
      • Letushim
      • Leummim
      • Medan
      • Midian
        • Ephah
        • Epher
        • Hanoch
        • Abida
        • Eldaah
        • Ishbak
        •  Shuah

Abraham gave all that he had to his son Isaac, but unto his other children he gave a few gifts and sent them away. Abraham dies at the age of 175 (hundred threescore and fifteen years). His sons Isaac and Ishmael bury him in the cave of Machpelah, in the field of Ephron. This is the same cave that Abraham purchased to bury his wife Sarah. They bury them next to each other. Isaac was blessed by God. The generation of Ishmael is listed in chapter 25 of Genesis:

Ishmael, the son of Hagar (Sarah’s handmaid) and his sons:

  • Nebajoth
  • Kedar
  • Adbeel
  • Mibsam
  • Mishma
  • Dumah
  • Massa
  • Hadar
  • Tema
  • Jetur
  • Naphish
  • Kedemah

These are the 12 princes talked about in Genesis 17:20, which we have already read.

Generations of Isaac:

Isaac and Rebekah try to have children but are unable to do so. Rebekah inquires of the Lord and asks him why she is unable to have children. The Lord says 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.” (Genesis 25:23)

Rebekah has twins, the first child came out red and called his name Esau and then Jacob was born shortly afterwards. Both of Isaac’s sons grew and one became a great hunter and the other was a plain man who enjoyed dwelling in tents. Isaac loved Esau because he was more of a manly man, and Rebekah loved Jacob, because he was at home with her more often.

  • Esau
  • Jacob

Jacob spends the day making some pottage (soup), when his older brother Esau comes in from the field and asks him for some food, because he was weak and tired.

Jacob promises to give his older brother some food, if he agrees to forfeit his birth right, Esau did not care about his birthright because he was hungry and agrees to give it to Jacob to feed his appetite.

Chapter 26: Prosperity of Isaac

The Lord appears unto Isaac and tells him that he is the God of his father and because he was a righteous man and Isaac was a righteous man that he would make his seed multiply as the stars of heaven and the whole earth will be blessed because of Isaac.

Isaac goes up and dwells in Gerar with his wife Rebekah, and when people of Gerar ask him about his wife he tells them that she is his sister. So, he must have learned this trick from his dad, because the same thing happens… except this time the king (king Abimelech) finds Isaac and Rebekah together and must question what they were doing, because he definitely thought they were something else besides brother and sister. Abimelech asks him why, and Isaac tells him because he was worried that someone would kill him and take his wife. So Abimelech tells everyone to not touch Rebekah or Isaac unless they want to die.

Isaac and his servants dig some wells and call them; Esek, Rehoboth, and Shebah. Esau (the son of Isaac) at the age of 40 marries Judith (the daughter of Beeri the Hittite) without the blessing of Isaac or Rebekah.

Chapter 27: Jacob is blessed.

Isaac is on his death bed when he asks his son Esau to go into the wilderness to get him some Venison that he might be able to enjoy one of his last meals, and in trade he promises to bless Esau. Esau agrees and heads out to hunt in the wilderness. Rebekah over hears this and commands Jacob to go get some goats, so she can make Isaac some meat and Jacob can bring it to his father (pretending to be Esau) and receive his blessing. Jacob brings in the meat to his father Isaac and when Isaac asks who he is, he tells them that he is Esau. Jacob receives Esau’s blessing from Isaac and when Esau returns with the Venison he is outraged that Jacob not only stole his birthright, but also his father’s blessing!
