Chapter 24

Abraham's Death

  • 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.
