And Esau said in his heart,a "The days of mourning for my father are coming, then I will kill Jacob my brother." 42 But the words of Esau her older son were told to Rebekah. And she sent and called for her younger son Jacob. And she said to him, "Look, Esau your brother [is] consoling himself concerning you, [intending] to kill you. 43 Now then, my son, listen to my voice; arise and flee to Haran to Laban my brother. 44 Stay with him a few days until the wrath of your brother has turned-- 45 until the anger of your brother turns from you and he has forgotten what you have done to him. Then I will send and bring you from there. Why should I lose the two of you in one day?" 46 Then Rebekah said to Isaac, "I loathe my life because of the Hittite women.b If Jacob takes a wife from Hittite womenc like these, from the {native women},d {what am I living for}?"e
