[Gen 25:19 NASB]
Now these are [the records of] the generations of Isaac, Abraham's son: Abraham became the father of Isaac;
[Gen 25:20 NASB]
and Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah, the daughter of Bethuel the Aramean of Paddan-aram, the sister of Laban the Aramean, to be his wife.
[Gen 25:21 NASB]
Isaac prayed to the LORD on behalf of his wife, because she was barren; and the LORD answered him and Rebekah his wife conceived.
[Gen 25:22 NASB]
But the children struggled together within her; and she said, "If it is so, why then am I [this way?]" So she went to inquire of the LORD.
[Gen 25:23 NASB]
The LORD said to her, "Two nations are in your womb; And two peoples will be separated from your body; And one people shall be stronger than the other; And the older shall serve the younger."
[Gen 25:24 NASB]
When her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.
[Gen 25:25 NASB]
Now the first came forth red, all over like a hairy garment; and they named him Esau.
[Gen 25:26 NASB]
Afterward his brother came forth with his hand holding on to Esau's heel, so his name was called Jacob; and Isaac was sixty years old when she gave birth to them.
