    SEV Biblia, Chapter 25:1

    ¬∂ Y Abraham tomů otra mujer, cuyo nombre fue Cetura;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 25:1

    Verse 1. Then again
    Abraham took a wife] When Abraham took Keturah we are not informed; it might have been in the lifetime of Sarah; and the original Psyw vaiyoseph, and he added, &c., seems to give some countenance to this opinion. Indeed it is not very likely that he had the children mentioned here after the death of Sarah; and from the circumstances of his age, feebleness, &c., at the birth of Isaac, it is still more improbable. Even at that age, forty years before the marriage of Isaac, the birth of his son is considered as not less miraculous on his part than on the part of Sarah; for the apostle expressly says, Rom. iv. 19, that Abraham considered not his own body NOW DEAD, when he was about a hundred years old, nor the DEADNESS of Sarah's womb; hence we learn that they were both past the procreation of children, insomuch that the birth of Isaac is ever represented as supernatural. It is therefore very improbable that he had any child after the birth of Isaac; and therefore we may well suppose that Moses had related this transaction out of its chronological order, which is not unfrequent in the sacred writings, when a variety of important facts relative to the accomplishment of some grand design are thought necessary to be produced in a connected series. On this account intervening matters of a different complexion are referred to a future time. Perhaps we may be justified in reading the verse: ""And Abraham had added, and had taken a wife (besides Hagar) whose name was Keturah,"" &c. The chronology in the margin dates this marriage with Keturah A. M. 2154, nine years after the death of Sarah, A. M. 2145.Jonathan ben Uzziel and the Jerusalem Targum both assert that Keturah was the same as Hagar. Some rabbins, and with them Dr. Hammond, are of the same opinion; but both Hagar and Keturah are so distinguished in the Scriptures, that the opinion seems destitute of probability.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-10 - All the days, even of the
    best and greatest saints, are not remarkabl days; some slide on silently; such were these last days of Abraham Here is an account of Abraham's children by Keturah, and the disposition which he made of his estate. After the birth of these sons he set his house in order, with prudence and justice. He did this whil he yet lived. It is wisdom for men to do what they find to do whil they live, as far as they can. Abraham lived 175 years; just on hundred years after he came to Canaan; so long he was a sojourner in strange country. Whether our stay in this life be long or short, in matters but little, provided we leave behind us a testimony to the faithfulness and goodness of the Lord, and a good example to ou families. We are told that his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him. I seems that Abraham had himself brought them together while he lived Let us not close the history of the life of Abraham without blessin God for such a testimony of the triumph of faith.
