Previous Chapter - Genesis 24:1 Previous Verse - Genesis 25:15 Next Verse - Genesis 25:17 Next Chapter - Genesis 26:1
{Genesis 25:16} These x428 [are] the sons 1121 of Ishmael, 3458 and these x428 [are] their names, 8034 by their towns, 2691 and by their castles; 2918 twelve 8147 6240 princes 5387 according to their nations. 523
castles:
The word tiroth, rendered "castles," is supposed by some to denote here "towers," fortified rocks, or mountain-tops, and fastnesses of various kinds in woods and hilly countries; but it rather means, "shepherds' cots," surrounded by sufficient enclosures to prevent the cattle from straying, as the cognate Syriac word teyaro, and Arabic tawar, signify "a sheep-fold."
twelve:
"And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation." {Gen 17:20} + "And Abraham took Ishmael his son, and all that were born in his house, and all that were bought with his money, every male among the men of Abraham's house; and circumcised the flesh of their foreskin in the selfsame day, as God had said unto him." {Gen 17:23}
