Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
41 Esav hated Ya`akov because of the blessing with which his father blessed him. Esav said in his heart, "The days of mourning for my father are at hand. Then I will kill my brother Ya`akov." 41 Esau held a grudge against Jacob because of the blessing his father had given him. He said to himself, "The days of mourning for my father are near; then I will kill my brother Jacob."
42 The words of Esav, her elder son, were told to Rivka. She sent and called Ya`akov her younger son, and said to him, "Behold, your brother Esav comforts himself about you by planning to kill you. 42 When Rebekah was told what her older son Esau had said, she sent for her younger son Jacob and said to him, "Your brother Esau is consoling himself with the thought of killing you.
43 Now therefore, my son, obey my voice. Arise, flee to Lavan, my brother, in Haran. 43 Now then, my son, do what I say: Flee at once to my brother Laban in Haran.
44 Stay with him a few days, until your brother's fury turns away; 44 Stay with him for a while until your brother's fury subsides.
45 until your brother's anger turn away from you, and he forgets what you have done to him. Then I will send, and get you from there. Why should I be bereaved of you both in one day?" 45 When your brother is no longer angry with you and forgets what you did to him, I'll send word for you to come back from there. Why should I lose both of you in one day?"
46 Rivka said to Yitzchak, "I am weary of my life because of the daughters of Het. If Ya`akov takes a wife of the daughters of Het, such as these, of the daughters of the land, what good will my life do me?" 46 Then Rebekah said to Isaac, "I'm disgusted with living because of these Hittite women. If Jacob takes a wife from among the women of this land, from Hittite women like these, my life will not be worth living."
