Genesis 1, 2,

Genesis 27:1 And it came to pass, that when Isaac was old, and his eyes were
dim, so that he could not see, he called Esau his eldest son, and said unto him,
My son: and he said unto him, Behold, here am I.
2 And he said, Behold now, I am old, I know not the day of my death:
3 Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go
out to the field, and take me some venison;
4 And make me savoury meat, such as I love, and bring it to me, that I may eat;
that my soul may bless thee before I die.
5 And Rebekah heard when Isaac spake to Esau his son. And Esau went to the field
to hunt for venison, and to bring it.
6 And Rebekah spake unto Jacob her son, saying, Behold, I heard thy father speak
unto Esau thy brother, saying,
7 Bring me venison, and make me savoury meat, that I may eat, and bless thee
before the Lord before my death.
Rebekah was doing as God told her to do.
Genesis 25:22 And the children struggled together within her; and
she said, If it be so, why am I thus? And she went to
enquire of the Lord.
the Lord said unto her, Two nations are in
thy womb, and two manner of people shall be
separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be
stronger than the other people; and
the elder shall serve the younger.
24 And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there
were twins in her womb.
25 And the first came out red,
all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau.
26 And after that came his brother out, and his hand took
hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was
threescore years old when she bare them.
27 And the boys
grew: and Esau was a cunning hunter, a man of the field; and Jacob
was a plain man, dwelling in tents.
8 Now therefore, my son, obey my voice according to that which I command thee.
9 Go now to the flock, and fetch me from thence two good kids of the goats; and
I will make them savoury meat for thy father, such as he loveth:
10 And thou shalt bring it to thy father, that he may eat, and that he may bless
thee before his death.
11 And Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, Behold, Esau my brother is a hairy man,
and I am a smooth man:
12 My father peradventure will feel me, and I shall seem to him as a deceiver;
and I shall bring a curse upon me, and not a blessing.
13 And his mother said unto him, Upon me be thy curse, my son: only obey my
voice, and go fetch me them.
14 And he went, and fetched, and brought them to his mother: and his mother made
savoury meat, such as his father loved.
15 And Rebekah took goodly raiment of her eldest son Esau, which were with her
in the house, and put them upon Jacob her younger son:
16 And she put the skins of the kids of the goats upon his hands, and upon the
smooth of his neck:
Goodly in Hebrew desires. Put for the things
desired or coveted
2 Chronicles 36:10 And when the year was
expired, king Nebuchadnezzar sent, and brought
him to Babylon, with the goodly vessels of the
house of the Lord, and made Zedekiah his brother
king over Judah and Jerusalem.
Isaiah 64:11 Our holy and our beautiful house,
where our fathers praised thee, is burned up
with fire: and all our pleasant things are laid

Lord? wilt thou hold thy peace, and afflict us
Lamentations 1:10 The adversary hath spread out
his hand upon all her pleasant things: for she
hath seen that the heathen entered into her
sanctuary, whom thou didst command that they
should not enter into thy congregation.
Raiment = All raiment in the East to this
day marks the social rank and position of the
wearer. Among the Bedouins, the chief and his
eldest son wear a distinctive garment. This
accounts for Jacob's desire here, and his act
Genesis 37:3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than
all his children, because he was the son of his
old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.
Being the garment of the firstborn it doubtless
denoted also his official and priestly position.
Here, Hebrew = beged used of sacred things.
Exodus 28:2 And thou shalt make holy garments
for Aaron thy brother for glory and for beauty.
3 And thou shalt speak unto all that are wise
hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of
wisdom, that they may make Aaron's garments to
consecrate him, that he may minister unto me in
the priest's office.
4 And these are the garments which they shall
make; a breastplate, and an ephod, and a robe,
and a broidered coat, a mitre, and a girdle: and
they shall make holy garments for Aaron thy
brother, and his sons, that he may minister unto
me in the priest's office.
Leviticus 10:6 And Moses said unto Aaron, and
unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar, his sons, Uncover
not your heads, neither rend your clothes; lest
ye die, and lest wrath come upon all the people:
but let your brethren, the whole house of
Israel, bewail the burning which the Lord hath
Not the word rendered clothes in Deuteronomy
29:5 And I have led you forty years in the
wilderness: your clothes are not waxen old upon
you, and thy shoe is not waxen old upon thy
No wonder Esau is called "profane" when he sold
this his birthright
Hebrews 12:16 Lest there be any fornicator, or
profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of
meat sold his birthright.
17 And she gave the savoury meat and the bread, which she had prepared, into the
hand of her son Jacob.
18 And he came unto his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I; who
art thou, my son?
19 And Jacob said unto his father, I am Esau thy firstborn; I have done
according as thou badest me: arise, I pray thee, sit and eat of my venison, that
thy soul may bless me.
20 And Isaac said unto his son, How is it that thou hast found it so quickly, my
son? And he said, Because the Lord thy God brought it to me.
21 And Isaac said unto Jacob, Come near, I pray thee, that I may feel thee, my
son, whether thou be my very son Esau or not.
22 And Jacob went near unto Isaac his father; and he felt him, and said, The
voice is Jacob's voice, but the hands are the hands of Esau.
23 And he discerned him not, because his hands were hairy, as his brother Esau's
hands: so he blessed him.
24 And he said, Art thou my very son Esau? And he said, I am.
25 And he said, Bring it near to me, and I will eat of my son's venison, that my
soul may bless thee. And he brought it near to him, and he did eat: and he
brought him wine, and he drank.
26 And his father Isaac said unto him, Come near now, and kiss me, my son.
27 And he came near, and kissed him: and he smelled the smell of his raiment,
and blessed him, and said, See, the smell of my son is as the smell of a field
which the Lord hath blessed:
28 Therefore God give thee of the dew of heaven, and the fatness of the earth,
and plenty of corn and wine:
29 Let people serve thee, and nations bow down to thee: be lord over thy
brethren, and let thy mother's sons bow down to thee: cursed be every one that
curseth thee, and blessed be he that blesseth thee.
30 And it came to pass, as soon as Isaac had made an end of blessing Jacob, and
Jacob was yet scarce gone out from the presence of Isaac his father, that Esau
his brother came in from his hunting.
31 And he also had made savoury meat, and brought it unto his father, and said
unto his father, Let my father arise, and eat of his son's venison, that thy
soul may bless me.
32 And Isaac his father said unto him, Who art thou? And he said,
I am thy son,
thy firstborn Esau.
33 And Isaac trembled very exceedingly, and said, Who? where is he that hath
taken venison, and brought it me, and I have eaten of all before thou camest,
and have blessed him? yea, and he shall be blessed.
34 And when Esau heard the words of his father, he cried with a great and
exceeding bitter cry, and said unto his father, Bless me, even me also, O my
35 And he said, Thy brother came with subtilty, and hath taken away thy
36 And he said, Is not he rightly named Jacob? for he hath supplanted me these
two times: he took away my birthright; and, behold, now he hath taken away my
blessing. And he said, Hast thou not reserved a blessing for me?
37 And Isaac answered and said unto Esau, Behold, I have made him thy lord, and
all his brethren have I given to him for servants; and with corn and wine have I
sustained him: and what shall I do now unto thee, my son?
38 And Esau said unto his father, Hast thou but one blessing, my father? bless
me, even me also, O my father. And Esau lifted up his voice, and wept.
39 And Isaac his father answered and said unto him, Behold, thy dwelling shall
be the fatness of the earth, and of the dew of heaven from above;
40 And by thy sword shalt thou live, and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall
come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke
from off thy neck.

Esau's was to be far from it, in the desert; and
so it was.
41 And Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his father blessed
him: and Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father are at hand;
then will I slay my brother Jacob.
42 And these words of Esau her elder son were told to Rebekah: and she sent and
called Jacob her younger son, and said unto him, Behold, thy brother Esau, as
touching thee, doth comfort himself, purposing to kill thee.
43 Now therefore, my son, obey my voice; and arise, flee thou to Laban my
brother to Haran;
44 And tarry with him a few days, until thy brother's fury turn away;
45 Until thy brother's anger turn away from thee, and he forget that which thou
hast done to him: then I will send, and fetch thee from thence: why should I be
deprived also of you both in one day?
46 And Rebekah said to Isaac, I am weary of my life because of the daughters of
