Chayey Sarah

24:67 Isaac brought [the girl] into his mother Sarah's tent, and he married Rebecca. She became his wife, and he loved her. Isaac was then consoled for the loss of his mother.
Vayevi'eha Yitschak ha'ohelah Sarah imo vayikach et-Rivkah vatehi-lo le'ishah vaye'ehaveha vayinachem Yitschak acharey imo.
25:1 Sixth Reading
Abraham married another woman whose name was Keturah.
Vayosef Avraham vayikach ishah ushmah Kturah.


  A concubine (1 Chronicles 1:32). Some sources identify her with Hagar (Targum Yonathan; Bereshith Rabbah 61; Rashi). Others, however, maintain that she was a third wife (Bereshith Rabbah 57; Zohar 1:133b; Ibn Ezra; Rashbam; Ramban on 25:6). One ancient source states that Hagar was already dead at this time (Yov'loth 19:13).
