Keturah (Hebrew: "incense") was a wife and a concubine of Abraham,[1][2] whom he took as a wife after Sarah died,[3]and after his son, Isaac had married Rebekah.

She bore six sons to Abraham: Zimram, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak and Shuah. These were received gifts from Abraham and were sent away with their families before the patriarch's death.[4]
