Abraham purchases a tomb (the Cave of the Patriarchs) at Hebron to be Sarah's grave, thus establishing his right to the land, and in the second generation his heir Isaac is married to a woman from his own kin, thus ruling the Canaanites out of any inheritance.Abraham later marries Keturah and has six more sons, but on his death, when he is buried beside Sarah, it is Isaac who receives "all Abraham's goods", while the other sons receive only "gifts" (Genesis 25:5–8).After Hagar found she was pregnant, she began to despise her mistress, Sarai.Therefore, Sarai mistreated Hagar, and Hagar fled away.The Abraham story cannot be definitively related to any specific time, and it is widely agreed that the patriarchal age, along with the exodus and the period of the judges, is a late literary construct that does not relate to any period in actual history.A common hypothesis among scholars is that it was composed in the early Persian period (late 6th century BCE) as a result of tensions between Jewish landowners who had stayed in Judah during the Babylonian captivity and traced their right to the land through their "father Abraham", and the returning exiles who based their counter-claim on Moses and the Exodus tradition.Abram's force headed north in pursuit of the Elamite army, who were already worn down from the Battle of Siddim.When they caught up with them at Dan, Abram devised a battle plan by splitting his group into more than one unit, and launched a night raid.
Once Abram received this news, he immediately assembled 318 trained servants.
God afflicted Pharaoh and his household with plagues, which led Pharaoh to try to find out what was wrong.
When they came back to the Bethel and Hai area, Abram's and Lot's sizable herds occupied the same pastures.
Terah, the ninth in descent from Noah, was the father of three sons: Abram, Nahor, and Haran.
Haran was the father of Lot (who was thus Abram's nephew), and died in his native city, Ur of the Chaldees. Terah, with Abram, Sarai, and Lot, then departed for Canaan, but settled in a place named Haran, where Terah died at the age of 205.
Abram and God made a covenant ceremony, and God told of the future bondage of Israel in Egypt.
