21 And Isaac entreated Jehovah for his wife, because she was barren; and Jehovah was entreated of him, and Rebecca his wife conceived. 21 Isaac prayed to the LORD on behalf of his wife, because she was barren. The LORD answered his prayer, and his wife Rebekah became pregnant.
22 And the children struggled together within her; and she said, If [it be] so, why am I thus? And she went to inquire of Jehovah. 22 The babies jostled each other within her, and she said, "Why is this happening to me?" So she went to inquire of the LORD.
23 And Jehovah said to her, Two nations are in thy womb, And two peoples shall be separated from thy bowels; And one people shall be stronger than the other people, And the elder shall serve the younger. 23 The LORD said to her, "Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples from within you will be separated; one people will be stronger than the other, and the older will serve the younger."
24 And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb. 24 When the time came for her to give birth, there were twin boys in her womb.
25 And the first came out red -- all over like a hairy garment; and they called his name Esau. 25 The first to come out was red, and his whole body was like a hairy garment; so they named him Esau.
26 And after that came his brother out; and his hand took hold of Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob. And Isaac was sixty years old when they were born. 26 After this, his brother came out, with his hand grasping Esau's heel; so he was named Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when Rebekah gave birth to them.
27 And the boys grew, and Esau became a man skilled in hunting, a man of the field; and Jacob was a homely man, dwelling in tents. 27 The boys grew up, and Esau became a skillful hunter, a man of the open country, while Jacob was a quiet man, staying among the tents.
28 And Isaac loved Esau, because venison was to his taste; and Rebecca loved Jacob. 28 Isaac, who had a taste for wild game, loved Esau, but Rebekah loved Jacob.
29 And Jacob had cooked a dish; and Esau came from the field, and he was faint. 29 Once when Jacob was cooking some stew, Esau came in from the open country, famished.
30 And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with the red -- the red thing there, for I am faint. Therefore was his name called Edom. 30 He said to Jacob, "Quick, let me have some of that red stew! I'm famished!" (That is why he was also called Edom. )
31 And Jacob said, Sell me now thy birthright. 31 Jacob replied, "First sell me your birthright."
32 And Esau said, Behold, I am going to die, and of what use can the birthright be to me? 32 "Look, I am about to die," Esau said. "What good is the birthright to me?"
33 And Jacob said, Swear unto me now. And he swore unto him, and sold his birthright to Jacob. 33 But Jacob said, "Swear to me first." So he swore an oath to him, selling his birthright to Jacob.
34 And Jacob gave Esau bread and the dish of lentils; and he ate and drank, and rose up and went away. Thus Esau despised the birthright. 34 Then Jacob gave Esau some bread and some lentil stew. He ate and drank, and then got up and left. So Esau despised his birthright.
