NKJV 25 And the first came out red. He was like a hairy garment all over; so they called his name Esau.

NKJV 30 And Esau said to Jacob, "Please feed me with that same red stew, for I am weary." Therefore his name was called Edom. NIV 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. ) NKJV 31 But Jacob said, "Sell me your birthright as of this day." NIV 31 Jacob replied, "First sell me your birthright." NKJV 32 And Esau said, "Look, I am about to die; so what is this birthright to me?" NIV 32 "Look, I am about to die," Esau said. "What good is the birthright to me?"
