View In My Bible
27 When the boys grew up, Esau became a skillful hunter, a man of the field, but Jacob was a apeaceful man, b1living in tents. 28 Now Isaac loved Esau, because che had 2a taste for game, 3but Rebekah loved Jacob. 29 When Jacob had cooked 4stew, Esau came in from the field and he was dfamished; 30 and Esau said to Jacob, "Please let me have a swallow of ethat red stuff there, for I am ffamished." Therefore his name was called gEdom. 31 But Jacob said, "hFirst sell me your 5birthright." 32 Esau said, "Behold, I am about to die; so of what use then is the birthright to me?" 33 And Jacob said, "iFirst swear to me"; so he swore to him, and 6sold his birthright to Jacob. 34 Then Jacob gave Esau bread and lentil stew; and he ate and drank, and rose and went on his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.
