    "..sith (since, to that) thou hast not hated blood, even blood shall pursue thee." Esau was the firstborn son of Isaac, and Jacob's older twin brother; but he chose instead to be a son of the devil and a heathen hater of the Lord! Born into the chosen Family through whom Christ was announced to come into the world; from his youth Esau despised with deepest contempt the things of God and religion.

    This chapter is pertinent regarding the current 2014 conflict in Gaza, Libya, Iraq, and Syria. The key is verse 5 where it explains that the Arabs perpetual hatred of Israel and by association Christians and their acts of terrorism against civilians is the cause of their current, and upcoming destruction. Civil war is destroying the Arab nations from within. They have have killed innocent Jews at a time when God is restoring the fortunes of the nation of Israel.
