Genesis 28:5-15 GNT

5 Isaac sent Jacob away to Mesopotamia, to Laban, who was the son of Bethuel the Aramean and the brother of Rebecca, the mother of Jacob and Esau.
6 Esau learned that Isaac had blessed Jacob and sent him away to Mesopotamia to find a wife. He also learned that when Isaac blessed him, he commanded him not to marry a Canaanite woman.
7 He found out that Jacob had obeyed his father and mother and had gone to Mesopotamia.
8 Esau then understood that his father Isaac did not approve of Canaanite women.
9 So he went to Ishmael son of Abraham and married his daughter Mahalath, who was the sister of Nebaioth.
10 Jacob left Beersheba and started toward Haran. 1
