Let thy words be few. Ecclesiastes 5:2
27 1 When Isaac was old and blind, he called for Esau, and said to him,
3 Go hunting, so I can eat some savory meat.
After I eat, I'll bless you before I die.
5-8 Rebekah overheard their conversation and told Jacob about it. She said to Jacob,
9Go get two goats and I'll cook your father a savory meal.
10Then he'll eat and bless you before he dies.
11-12 Jacob replied,
Esau is hairy and I am smooth. He'll feel my skin and know it's me, not Esau.Then I'll get a curse, not a blessing.
13 Rebekah said,
Don't worry about that. The cursing will be on me.
Just go fetch the goats.
14 So Jacob did as his mom told him, and his mom fixed a savory meal. 15 Rebekah took some of Esau's clothes and put them on Jacob. 16 She also put goat skins on his hands and neck. 17 Then she gave the meal to Jacob and sent him to Isaac. 18 Jacob lied to his father, saying,
I am Esau your firstborn son.
19 I have killed and cooked some venison for you. Now eat, so you can bless me.
21 Isaac said,
Come near, so I can feel you to see if you are really Esau.
22 The voice is Jacob's, but the hands are Esau's.
23 But the hairy hands fooled him, so he blessed Jacob, thinking it was Esau.
24 Isaac wasn't completely convinced that he'd blessed the right son, so he asked, "Are you Esau?"
Jacob lied again, saying, "Yes I am."
25 Isaac ate the meal and drank some wine. Then he asked Jacob to come and kiss him.
27 When Jacob kissed Isaac, his goat-skin covered hands smelled like Esau. So now he was sure that Jacob was Esau, and he blessed him, saying,
Cursed be everyone who curses you and blessed be whoever blesses you.
32 His confused father asked him, "Who are you?"
Esau answered, "I am Esau, your firstborn."
33 Isaac trembled and said, "Who? Where's the guy that I just blessed and who fed me venison?"
34 Esau, with a bitter cry, said, "Bless me too, father!"
35 Isaac gave Esau the bad news: "Your brother stole your blessing."
36 Esau said, "It figures. First he stole my birthright, now my blessing."
37 Isaac replied,
Yes, it's too late. My blessing made Jacob your lord and master.
He gets all the wine and grain. There's nothing left to give you.
38 Esau wept and said, "So you only have one blessing? Bless me my father!"
39 Isaac gave him more of a prediction than a blessing:
You'll live off the fatness of the earth and the dew from heaven.
40 You'll live by the sword and serve your brother Jacob.
And someday you will be free of him.
41 Esau hated Jacob for stealing his blessing. He vowed to kill him after Isaac's death.
42 Rebekah told Jacob about Esau's threat, saying,
This is just another story that answers the question, "Where did these enemies come from?"
In this case the hated ethnic group is the Edomites.
Since Jacob and Rebekah deceitfully tricked Esau into blessing Jacob instead of Esau, why didn't God straighten things out?
