His father Isaac answered him, "The place where you live will lack the fertile fields of the earth and the dew from the sky above.
You will use your sword to live, and you will serve your brother. But eventually you will gain your freedom and break his yoke off your neck."
So Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing that his father had given him. Esau said to himself, "The time to mourn for my father is near. Then I'll kill my brother Jacob."
When Rebekah was told what her older son Esau had said, she sent for her younger son Jacob and said to him, "Watch out! Your brother Esau is comforting himself by planning to kill you.
So now, Son, obey me. Quick! Run away to my brother Laban in Haran.
Stay with him awhile, until your brother's anger cools down.
When your brother's anger is gone and he has forgotten what you did to him, I'll send for you and get you back. Why should I lose both of you in one day?"
Rebekah said to Isaac, "I can't stand Hittite women! If Jacob marries a Hittite woman like one of those from around here, I might as well die."
