41 So Esau 1bore a grudge against Jacob because of the blessing with which his father had blessed him; and Esau said to himself, "2The days of mourning for my father are near; then I will kill my brother Jacob."
42 Now when the words of her elder son Esau were reported to Rebekah, she sent and called her younger son Jacob, and said to him, "Behold your brother Esau is consoling himself concerning you by planning to kill you.
43 "Now therefore, my son, 3obey my voice, and arise, flee to 4Haran, to my brother 5Laban!
44 "Stay with him 6a few days, until * your brother's fury subsides,
45 until your brother's anger against you subsides and he forgets 7what you did to him. Then I will send and get you from there. Why should I be bereaved of you both in one day?"
