In this article we will be looking at what the Bible says about the
descendants of Ishmael. They have a place in prophecy and are related to the
Jews by a common father, Abraham. The Arabs or descendants of Ishmael will one
day come into a position of blessing. Currently they are in bondage to a false
religion called Islam. However, God is in control and the day will come when
they will be delivered and enter into a period of blessing. In this article we
will look at their history and their relation to the nation of Israel
and the descendants of Isaac.

Here is an introduction from Eastons commentary:

Easton's Bible Dictionary

Ishmael God hears.

Abraham's eldest son, by Hagar the concubine (Genesis 16:15; 17:23).
He was born at Mamre, when Abraham was eighty-six years of age, eleven years
after his arrival in Canaan (16:3; 21:5). At the age of
thirteen he was circumcised (17:25).
He grew up a true child of the desert, wild and wayward. On the occasion of the
weaning of Isaac his rude and wayward spirit broke out in expressions of insult
and mockery (21:9,10); and Sarah, discovering this, said to Abraham,
"Expel this slave and her son." Influenced by a divine admonition,
Abraham dismissed Hagar and her son with no more than a skin of water and some
bread. The narrative describing this act is one of the most beautiful and
touching incidents of patriarchal life (Genesis 21:14-16).

Ishmael settled in the land of Paran,
a region lying between Canaan and the mountains of
Sinai; and "God was with him, and he became a great archer" (Genesis
21:9-21). He became a great desert chief, but of his history little is
recorded. He was about ninety years of age when his father Abraham died, in
connection with whose burial he once more for a moment reappears. On this
occasion the two brothers met after being long separated. "Isaac with his
hundreds of household slaves, Ishmael with his troops of wild retainers and
half-savage allies, in all the state of a Bedouin prince, gathered before the
cave of Machpelah, in the midst of the men of Heth, to pay the last duties to
the 'father of the faithful,' would make a notable subject for an artist"
(Genesis 25:9). Of the after events of his life but little is known. He died at
the age of one hundred and thirty-seven years, but where and when are unknown
(25:17). He had twelve sons, who became the founders of so many Arab tribes or
colonies, the Ishmaelites, who spread over the wide desert spaces of Northern
Arabia from the Red Sea to the Euphrates (Genesis 37:25,27,28; 39:1), "their hand against every
man, and every man's hand against them."

⁣Genesis 27:40

38And Esau said vnto his father, Hast thou but one blessing, my father? blesse mee, euen mee also, O my father. And Esau lift vp his voyce, and wept. 39And Isaac his father answered, and said vnto him, Behold, thy dwelling shall be the fatnesse of the earth, and of the dew of heauen from aboue. 40And by thy sword shalt thou liue, and shalt serue thy brother: and it shall come to passe when thou shalt haue the dominion, that thou shalt breake his yoke from off thy necke. 41¶ And Esau hated Iacob, because of the blessing, wherewith his father blessed him: and Esau said in his heart, The dayes of mourning for my father are at hand; then will I slay my brother Iacob. 42And these words of Esau her elder sonne were told to Rebekah: And shee sent and called Iacob her yonger sonne, and said vnto him, Behold, thy brother Esau, as touching thee, doeth comfort himselfe, purposing to kill thee.
