Book of Genesis Chapter 24 Summary
- Abraham sends his servant to get a wife for Isaac in Haran, and the servant comes home with Rebekah.
- Abraham marries another wife named Keturah, who has kids, but Abraham gives all of the inheritance to Isaac. Score.
- He dies, very old, full of years, and is "gathered to his people" (25:8 NRSV). Genesis really doesn't have much more to say than this about the afterlife.
- Isaac and Ishmael bury him with Sarah in Machpelah, the cave Abraham bought in 23:1-20.
