Genesis 25:9

Context
25:9 His sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Machpelah 1  near Mamre, in the field of Ephron the son of Zohar, the Hethite.

Genesis 25:12

Context
The Sons of Ishmael

25:12 This is the account of Abraham’s son Ishmael, 2  whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah’s servant, bore to Abraham.

1 sn The cave of Machpelah was the place Abraham had purchased as a burial place for his wife Sarah (Gen 23:17-18).

2 sn This is the account of Ishmael. The Book of Genesis tends to tidy up the family records at every turning point. Here, before proceeding with the story of Isaac’s family, the narrative traces Ishmael’s family line. Later, before discussing Jacob’s family, the narrative traces Esau’s family line (see Gen 36).
