Bible: Gen 25:29-34

25:29 Now Jacob cooked some stew, 1  and when Esau came in from the open fields, he was famished. 25:30 So Esau said to Jacob, “Feed 2  me some of the red stuff – yes, this red stuff – because I’m starving!” (That is why he was also called 3  Edom.) 4 

25:31 But Jacob replied, “First 5  sell me your birthright.” 25:32 Look,” said Esau, “I’m about to die! What use is the birthright to me? 6  25:33 But Jacob said, “Swear an oath to me now.” 7  So Esau 8  swore an oath to him and sold his birthright 9  to Jacob.

25:34 Then Jacob gave Esau some bread and lentil stew; Esau ate and drank, then got up and went out. 10  So Esau despised his birthright. 11
