Genesis 27:41-45

CEBA 41 Esau was furious at Jacob because his father had blessed him, and Esau said to himself, When the period of mourning for the death of my father is over, I will kill my brother. NIV 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." CEBA 42 Rebekah was told what her older son Esau was planning, so she summoned her younger son Jacob and said to him, "Esau your brother is planning revenge. He plans to kill you. NIV 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. CEBA 43 So now, my son, listen to me: Get up and escape to my brother Laban in Haran. NIV 43 Now then, my son, do what I say: Flee at once to my brother Laban in Haran. CEBA 44 Live with him for a short while until your brother's rage subsides, NIV 44 Stay with him for a while until your brother's fury subsides. CEBA 45 until your brother's anger at you goes away and he forgets what you did to him. Then I will send for you and bring you back from there. Why should I suffer the loss of both of you on one day?" NIV 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?"
