1. Esau the Man
Esau and Jacob (also known as Israel) were twin brothers. Their parents were
Isaac and Rebecca. Esau was born first and Jacob came out of the womb after him,
holding on to his heel (Genesis 25:26). Esau was red and hairy and already
well-developed at birth (Genesis 25:25).
Esau was reddish (Admoni) and so was King David (1-Samuel 16:12, 17;42). Regarding King David, this is
usually taken to mean red-haired or blondish-red.
Luther however translated "Admoni" as "brownish" and it may be that concerning Esau this secondary meaning is also applicable.
Esau sold his birthright to Jacob in exchange for a "mess of pottage" (meal of
lentils) (Genesis 25:29-34).
Esau was a hunter, a man of the field. Isaac preferred Esau whereas their mother
Rebecca favored Jacob (Genesis 25:28).
Isaac told Esau to take his weapons and hunt him a deer so that he might eat
and give him the Paternal Blessing. Rebecca overheard and
dressed Jacob up as Esau. Isaac was blind and despite doubts blessed Jacob
thinking he was Esau. When Isaac realized what had happened he recognized the
Hand of Providence and confirmed the blessings to Jacob.
##...I HAVE BLESSED HIM. YEA, AND HE SHALL BE BLESSED [Genesis 27:33] .
## AND ISAAC ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO ESAU, BEHOLD, I HAVE MADE HIM THY LORD, AND
ALL HIS BRETHREN HAVE I GIVEN TO HIM FOR SERVANTS [Genesis 27:37].
Esau then CRIED WITH A GREAT AND EXCEEDING BITTER CRY [Genesis 27:34].
Isaac blessed Esau that he should live by the sword and dwell in fertile blessed lands (Genesis 27:39-40).
Esau vowed to kill Jacob (Genesis 27:41).
Jacob and Esau eventually were reconciled. Jacob promises to visit Esau in the
Land of Seir but never does (Genesis 33:14).
