Bible: Genesis 25:12-18

The Sons of Ishmael

25:12 This is the account of Abraham’s son Ishmael, 1  whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah’s servant, bore to Abraham.

25:13 These are the names of Ishmael’s sons, by their names according to their records: 2  Nebaioth (Ishmael’s firstborn), Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam, 25:14 Mishma, Dumah, Massa, 25:15 Hadad, Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah. 25:16 These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names by their settlements and their camps – twelve princes 3  according to their clans.

25:17 Ishmael lived a total of 4  137 years. He breathed his last and died; then he joined his ancestors. 5  25:18 His descendants 6  settled from Havilah to Shur, which runs next 7  to Egypt all the way 8  to Asshur. 9  They settled 10  away from all their relatives. 11
