Genesis 25:23; Genesis 27:29; Genesis 27:37; Genesis 27:40; Numbers 24:18

23 And the Lord said to her,

kTwo nations are in your womb,

and two peoples from within you1 shall be divided;

lthe one shall be stronger than the other,

mthe older shall serve the younger.


29  Let peoples serve you,

and nations qbow down to you.

rBe lord over your brothers,

and may your mother's sons bow down to you.

sCursed be everyone who curses you,

and blessed be everyone who blesses you!


37 Isaac answered and said to Esau, Behold, wI have made him lord over you, and all his brothers I have given to him for servants, and xwith grain and wine I have sustained him. What then can I do for you, my son?


40  By your sword you shall live,

and you zshall serve your brother;

but when you grow restless

ayou shall break his yoke from your neck.


18  wEdom shall be dispossessed;

xSeir also, his enemies, shall be dispossessed.

Israel is doing valiantly.
