Esau Selling His Birthright by Hendrick Terbrugghen - 1625
Esau Sells his Birthright
Esau Sells his Birthright (Genesis 25:24 - Genesis 25:34)
25:24 
And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.
 
25:25 
And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau.
 
25:26 
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.
 
25:27 
And the boys grew: and Esau was a cunning hunter, a man of the field; and Jacob was a plain man, dwelling in tents.
 
25:28 
And Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of his venison: but Rebekah loved Jacob.
 
25:29 
And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was faint:
 
25:30 
And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom.
 
25:31 
And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright.
 
25:32 
And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?
 
25:33 
And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob.
 
25:34 
Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.
 
26:1 
And there was a famine in the land, beside the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went unto Abimelech king of the Philistines unto Gerar.
26:2 
And the LORD appeared unto him, and said, Go not down into Egypt; dwell in the land which I shall tell thee of:
26:3 
Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;
 
26:4 
And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;
 
26:5 
Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.
 
26:6 
And Isaac dwelt in Gerar:
26:7 
And the men of the place asked him of his wife; and he said, She is my sister: for he feared to say, She is my wife; lest, said he, the men of the place should kill me for Rebekah; because she was fair to look upon.
 
26:8 
And it came to pass, when he had been there a long time, that Abimelech king of the Philistines looked out at a window, and saw, and, behold, Isaac was sporting with Rebekah his wife.
 
26:9 
And Abimelech called Isaac, and said, Behold, of a surety she is thy wife: and how saidst thou, She is my sister? And Isaac said unto him, Because I said, Lest I die for her.
