1 Chronicles 1:32 (and also Genesis 25:6 ) shows us that Keturah was not considered to be of the same dignity as Sarah who, indeed, was the mother of the son of promise, and, for obvious reasons, the sons of Abraham's concubines were separated from Isaac. She was the mother of 6 sons representing Arab tribes South and East of Palestine (Genesis 25:1-6 ), so that through the offspring of Keturah Abraham became "the father of many nations."
