    To get the truth we must go back and read ch 24. 25.26. 28 then 29 because Issac call his son Esau in because he knew he was dying and Isaac told his to go get his food that he love and cook it.his wife heard him and told Jocob her son to pretend he was Isaac oldest son so that his father could bless him and he would own all of Isaac rishes.so when Jacob and his mother decieved Isaac everything went wrong Esau hated his brother for what he did he stole his birthright everything went wrong from that lie u no a family lie can travel down threw a family until someone stand u and speak the truth
