The Book of the Generations of Ishmael

Genesis 25:12-13 KJV

[12] Now these are the generations of Ishmael, Abraham’s son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah’s handmaid, bare unto Abraham: [13] And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebajoth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,

[14] And Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa, [15] Hadar, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah: [16] These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their towns, and by their castles; twelve princes according to their nations.

[17] And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, an hundred and thirty and seven years: and he gave up the ghost and died; and was gathered unto his people. [18] They dwelt from Havilah unto Shur, that is before Egypt, as thou goest toward Assyria: and he died in the presence of all his brethren.


There is not a Book of the Generations of Abraham.

It goes from Terah, Abraham’s father, to his sons. This son is his firstborn, Ishmael. Ishmael came by way of Abraham’s concubine, Hagar. Ishmael today is said to be the father of the religion known as Islam. At least his descendants are said to have proclaimed the Islamic faith.

In our modern terminology, Ishmael would be biracial. His father Abraham is Shemetic (Semitic), while his mother was an Egyptian. She would be from the family of Mizraim, son of Ham. Ishmael’s father is from Shem, his mother from Ham, but both Shem and Ham are from Noah.

The last note on the generations of Ishmael is that he also had twelve sons, the twelve princes, as is noted in the Bible. They lived from Havilah to Egypt, like one going towards Assyria. This is Ishmael ladies and gentlemen.
