Isaac’s Sons

19 ¶ Now these are [the records of] athe generations of Isaac, Abraham’s son: Abraham Ibecame the father of Isaac; 20 and Isaac was forty years old when he took aRebekah, the bdaughter of Bethuel the IAramean of Paddan-aram, the csister of Laban the IAramean, to be his wife. 21 Isaac prayed to the LORD on behalf of his wife, because she was barren; and athe LORD Ianswered him and Rebekah his wife bconceived. 22 But the children struggled together within her; and she said, “If it is so, why then am I [this way]?” So she went to ainquire of the LORD. 23 The LORD said to her,
  “aTwo nations are in your womb;
  bAnd two peoples will be separated from your body;
  And one people shall be stronger than the other;
  And cthe older shall serve the younger.”
24 When her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb. 25 Now the first came forth red, aall over like a hairy garment; and they named him Esau. 26 Afterward his brother came forth with ahis hand holding on to Esau’s heel, so bhis name was called IJacob; and Isaac was csixty years old when she gave birth to them.

Thus Esau despised his birthright.
