The home and background of Keturah are unknown. Like Hagar, she is called a concubine (Genesis 25:6; 1 Chronicles 1:32) to emphasize that her sons were not to inherit the promises centered in Isaac. However, God had also promised (Genesis 17:4) that Abraham would be a father of many nations. When his body was miraculously rejuvenated at age 100 to father Isaac, he remained "young" for many more years, eventually begetting six more sons by Keturah.
