Genesis 25:19-28

The Birth of Esau and Jacob

19 These are the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son: 1Abraham fathered Isaac,
20 and Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah, 2the daughter of Bethuel the Aramean of 3Paddan-aram, 4the sister of Laban the Aramean, to be his wife.
21 And Isaac prayed to the LORD for his wife, because she was barren. And 5the LORD granted his prayer, and Rebekah his wife conceived.
22 The children struggled together within her, and she said, "If it is thus, why is this happening to me?"a So she went 6to inquire of the LORD.
23 And the LORD said to her, 7"Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples from within youb shall be divided; 8the one shall be stronger than the other, 9the older shall serve the younger."
24 When her days to give birth were completed, behold, there were twins in her womb.
25 The first came out red, 10all his body like a hairy cloak, so they called his name Esau.
26 Afterward his brother came out with 11his hand holding Esau's heel, so 12his name was called Jacob.c Isaac was sixty years old when she bore them.
27 When the boys grew up, Esau was 13a skillful hunter, a man of the field, while Jacob was a quiet man, 14dwelling in tents.
28 Isaac loved Esau because 15he ate of his game, but Rebekah loved Jacob.
