Genesis chapter twenty-five

Verse 1:
Struggle in the womb
Esau and Jacob
God told Rebecca you’ll give birth to two nations
The older will serve the younger
Twins in her belly
First who came out was Esau red and hairy
His brother came out second holding his heel
They named him Jacob
He was God’s favorite
Time flew
And the boys grew
Esau was the hunter who would hunt for food
Jacob was simple
One day he’s boiling up stew
From the field hungry and tired Esau came through
He said please
Give me a swallow of the red
Pottage that is
For I am famished
Jacob said
Sell me your birthright you can have this
He replied
I’m gonna die what good is a birth right
Esau sworn sold his right as first-born
Bread and stew he ate and drank then walked on...

Then walked on…

Age forty Esau married his wives
Daughters of the Hittites
Which were a grief of mind
Onto Isaac and Rebecca

Verse 2:
In time Isaac grew old he could not see
Called his son Esau
He said come before me
Behold I am old son
I know not the day of my death
Then he told him
Hunt me some food
Make me some savoury meat
Such as I love
Bring it to me that I may eat
Take your weapons
The quiver and the bow
That my soul
May bless you before I go
Rebecca heard everything her husband spoke
Esau went into the field
To get the food he hunt and killed
Rebecca devised a plan
Told Jacob my son
Obey my voice to which I command
Go fetch me two goats I will prepare the meal
Bring it to your father that he may bless you
That’s the deal
Jacob said my brother is hairy I am smooth
What if my father feels
I’ll be cursed and doomed

(Genesis 27:13-14)
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.

Verse 3:
Rebecca took some of Esau’s clothes and put’em on
Jacob her younger son
This is what was done
She put the skins of the kids of the goats upon
His hands and neck
So he appears as first born
Gave the meat and bread she prepared to her son
Jacob told his father
What you asked I have done
Isaac said how is it that you found it so quickly
He said the Lord brought it to me
Jacob was witty
His father says come near
The voice is of Jacob
But the hands are of Esau filled with hair
So he blessed him right there
He ate
Brought him some wine and he drank
His father says come close
Kiss me my son
He kissed him
Smelled the smell of his clothes
Isaac blessed Jacob
Held back nothing
Right before Esau came back from hunting

(Genesis 27:30-32)
30 And it came to pass, as soon as Isaac had made 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.
