Genesis 25:19
This is the history of the generations of Isaac, Abraham’s son. Abraham became the father of Isaac.

Genesis 25:20  
Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Paddan Aram, the sister of Laban the Syrian, to be his wife.

Genesis 25:21  
Isaac entreated Yahweh for his wife, because she was barren. Yahweh was entreated by him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.

Genesis 25:22  
The children struggled together within her. She said, “If it is like this, why do I live?” She went to inquire of Yahweh.

Genesis 25:23  
Yahweh said to her, “Two nations are in your womb. Two peoples will be separated from your body. The one people will be stronger than the other people. The elder will serve the younger.”

Genesis 25:24  
When her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.

Genesis 25:25  
The first came out red all over, like a hairy garment. They named him Esau.

Genesis 25:26  
After that, his brother came out, and his hand had hold on Esau’s heel. He was named Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when she bore them.

Genesis 25:27  
The boys grew. Esau was a skillful hunter, a man of the field. Jacob was a quiet man, living in tents.

Genesis 25:28  
Now Isaac loved Esau, because he ate his venison. Rebekah loved Jacob.

Genesis 25:29  
Jacob boiled stew. Esau came in from the field, and he was famished.

Genesis 25:30  
Esau said to Jacob, “Please feed me with some of that red stew, for I am famished.” Therefore his name was called Edom.

Genesis 25:31  
Jacob said, “First, sell me your birthright.”

Genesis 25:32  
Esau said, “Behold, I am about to die. What good is the birthright to me?”

Genesis 25:33  
Jacob said, “Swear to me first.” He swore to him. He sold his birthright to Jacob.

Genesis 25:34  
Jacob gave Esau bread and lentil stew. He ate and drank, rose up, and went his way. So Esau despised his birthright.
