Keturah

Keturah bore Abraham six sons: Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuah. Genesis and First Chronicles also list seven of her grandsons (Sheba, Dedan, Ephah, Epher, Enoch, Abida, and Eldaah). Keturah’s sons were said to have represented the Arab tribes who lived south and east of Palestine (Genesis 25:1-6 & 1 Chronicles 1:32-33)

I don’t mind so much
That you don’t know me.
But I wish you knew
My beautiful sons.

Zimran was strong and proud.
His father’s eyes shone when he looked at Zimran.

Jokshan adored his older brother.
But he got tired of hearing about the great Isaac.

Medan wanted to be just like Zimran and Jokshan.
He walked early and was soon running.

Midian was so handsome.
It didn’t take long for the girls to be interested.

Ishbak was always in trouble.
What an imp he was!

Shuah was my baby.
How he hated to be called my baby.

Fine boys all
Fine fathers all
Forgotten all
