Ishmael's twelve sons are mentioned in Genesis 25:12-15. They were named (in the order of their births) Nebaioth, Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam, Mishma, Dumah, Massa, Hadad, Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah. Genesis 25:16 describes them as "princes" (in fulfillment of the promise that God had made to Abraham in Genesis 17:20), and Genesis 25:18 says that the tribes that they founded dwelt "from Havilah to Shur, which is opposite Egypt in the direction of Assyria."
