Profane People

Genesis 25:27-34

27So the boys grew. And Esau was a skillful hunter, a man of the field; but Jacob was a mild man, dwelling in tents. 28And Isaac loved Esau because he ate of his game, but Rebekah loved Jacob.
 
29Now Jacob cooked a stew; and Esau came in from the field, and he was weary. 30And Esau said to Jacob, “Please feed me with that same red stew, for I am weary.” Therefore his name was called Edom.
 
31But Jacob said, “Sell me your birthright as of this day.”
 
32And Esau said, “Look, I am about to die; so what is this birthright to me?”
 
33Then Jacob said, “Swear to me as of this day.”
 
So he swore to him, and sold his birthright to Jacob. 34And Jacob gave Esau bread and stew of lentils; then he ate and drank, arose, and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.
