SOLD FOR A BOWL OF SOUP

 

Genesis 22:27-36

27 And the boys grew: and Esau was a cunning hunter, a man of the

field; and Jacob [was] a plain man, dwelling in tents. 28 And

Isaac loved Esau, because he did eat of [his] venison: but Rebekah

loved Jacob. 29 And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the

field, and he [was] faint: 30 And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I

pray thee, with that same red [pottage]; for I [am] faint:

therefore was his name called Edom. 31 And Jacob said, Sell me

this day thy birthright. 32 And Esau said, Behold, I [am] at the

point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me? 33

And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and

he sold his birthright unto Jacob. 34 Then Jacob gave Esau bread

and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up,

and went his way: thus Esau despised [his] birthright.
