Now Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of his venison; and Rebekah loved Jacob.
And Jacob sod pottage; and Esau came in from the field, and he was faint.
And Esau said to Jacob: 'Let me swallow, I pray thee, some of this red, red pottage; for I am faint.' Therefore was his name called Edom.
And Jacob said: 'Sell me first thy birth right.'
And Esau said: 'Behold, I am at the point to die; and what profit shall the birthright do to me?'
And Jacob said: 'Swear to me first'; and he swore unto him; and he sold his birthright unto Jacob.
And Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentils; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way. So Esau despised his birthright.
