Bartering Birthright2001 18" x 24" Bartered Birthright. Genesis 25:27–34. 27. And the boys grew; and Esau was a skillful hunter, a man of the field; and Jacob was a quiet man, living in tents. 28. And Isaac loved Esau, because he ate of his venison; but Rebekah loved Jacob. 29. And Jacob cooked pottage; and Esau came from the field, and he was famished. 30. And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I beg you, with that same red pottage; for I am famished; therefore was his name called Edom. 31. And Jacob said, Sell me this day your birthright. 32. And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point of death; and what profit shall this birthright do to me? 33. And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he swore to him; and he sold his birthright to Jacob. 34. Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentils; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way; thus Esau despised his birthright. Used with permission of the Davka Corporation.
