Blessings to you my brother Jose Abraham;

Would you read this portion of Scriptures online if you do not have a Bible.

Ishmael bore 12 sons: 
1. Nebaioth, 2. Kedar, 3. Adbeel, 4. Mibsam, 5. Mishma, 6. Duma, 7. Massa, 8. Hadad, 9. Tema, 10. Jetur, 11. Naphish, and 12. Kedmah. 

The sons of Ishmael are found in Genesis Chapter 25 from verse 13 to verse 15.

I have made a copy for you attached hereto. It is from King James Version but you can find a version of your own choice:

Genesis 25:12-18

King James Version (KJV)

12 Now these are the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's handmaid, bare unto Abraham:

13 And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebajoth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,

14 And Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa,

15 Hadar, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah:

16 These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their towns, and by their castles; twelve princes according to their nations.

17 And these are the years of the life of Ishmael, an hundred and thirty and seven years: and he gave up the ghost and died; and was gathered unto his people.

18 And they dwelt from Havilah unto Shur, that is before Egypt, as thou goest toward Assyria: and he died in the presence of all his brethren.

I hope The Lord will bless you in your findings to open and enlighten your heart - your soul as well as your mind.
May His Word be a lamp to your feet and a light on your path. Amin!
