    SEV Biblia, Chapter 25:6

    Y a los hijos de sus concubinas dio Abraham dones, y los envió de junto Isaac su hijo, mientras él vivió, al oriente, a la tierra oriental.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 25:6

    Verse 6. Unto the sons of the
    concubines] Viz., Hagar and Keturah, Abraham gave gifts. Cattle for breed, seed to sow the land, and implements for husbandry, may be what is here intended.

    And sent them away-while he yet lived] Lest after his death they should dispute a settlement in the Land of Promise with Isaac; therefore he very prudently sent them to procure settlements during his lifetime, that they might be under no temptation to dispute the settlement with Isaac in Canaan. From this circumstance arose that law which has prevailed in almost all countries, of giving the estates to the eldest son by a lawful wife; for though concubines, or wives of the second rank, were perfectly legitimate in those ancient times, yet their children did not inherit, except in case of the failure of legal issue, and with the consent of the lawful wife; and it is very properly observed by Calmet, that it was in consequence of the consent of Leah and Rachel that the children of their slaves by Jacob had a common and equal lot with the rest. By a law of Solon all natural children were excluded from the paternal inheritance, but their fathers were permitted to give them any sum not beyond a thousand drachma by way of present.

    Eastward, unto the east country.] Arabia Deserta, which was eastward of Beer-sheba, where Abraham lived.


    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.
