The Book of Jasher
|XXV:1 And it was at that time that Abraham again took a wife in his old age, and her name was
Keturah, from the land of Canaan.
XXV:2 And she bare unto him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuach, being six
sons. And the children of Zimran were Abihem, Molich, and Narim.
XXV:3 And the sons of Jokshan were Sheba and Dedan, and the sons of Medan were Amida,
Joab, Gochi, Elisha, and Nothach; and the sons of Midian were Ephah, Epher, Chanoch,
Abida, and Eldaah.
XXV:4 And the sons of Ishbak were Makiro, Beyodua, and Tator.
XXV:5 And the sons of Shuach were Bildad, Mamdad, Munan, and Meban; all these are the families
of the children of Keturah the Canaanitish woman which she bare unto Abraham the Hebrew.
XXV:6 And Abraham sent all these away, and he gave them gifts, and they went away from his son
Isaac to dwell wherever they should find a place.
XXV:7 And all these went to the mountain at the east, and they built themselves six cities in which
they dwelt unto this day.
XXV:8 But the children of Sheba and Dedan, children of Jokshan, with their children did not dwell
with their brethren in their cities, and they journeyed and encamped in the countries and
wildernesses unto this day.
XXV:9 And the children of Midian, son of Abraham, went to the east of the land of Cush, and they
there found a large valley in the eastern country, and they remained there and built a city,
and they dwelt therein, that is the land of Midian unto this day.
XXV:10 And Midian dwelt in the city which he built, he and his five sons and all belonging to him.
