    Verses 28-30: Esau had sold his birthright earlier to Jacob so when he received the blessing from Isaac, it was rightfully his to receive.

    All the events that happened in this chapter was because of the Isaac. It was made clear before the birth of the twins that elder will serve the younger. Isaac was well aware that God has chosen Jacob but he chose Esau on the ground of food. Isaac became a carnal believer because he tried to change the decision of God. This rebellion upon the Word of God is the reason for those evil deeds.
  • Matt
    Jacob was meant to get the blessing and become Israel. I wouldn't feel too sorry for Esau, because he didn't care about God. He sold his birthright to Jacob for a bowl of lentils in Gen. 25 v. 29-34. He also had two wives that were satanic (Hittite), which further shows he didn't care about God. That is why God hated Esau and loved Jacob (Mal. ch. 1

    I see in this story how dishonest in a family brings decision.
  • James
    Need to read the whole story, God promised Jacob the blessing but like all man he did it his way, and paid a price for it. Esa didn't want any part of God, same today. Isaac was like Most Church Leaders today, they seem to follow that same path. ? What is that word??? Oh yeah, PRIDE
