field, and hairy, and Ya'aqov (3290)
dwelt in tents.
:And the youths grew, and Ya'aqov (3290) learned to write; but Esav (6215) did not
learn, for he
was a man of the field and a hunter, and he learnt war, and all his deeds were fierce.
:And Av'raham (85)
loved Ya'aqov (3290), but Yits'chaq (3327) loved Esav (6215).
:And Av'raham (85) saw the deeds of Esav (6215), and he knew
that in Ya'aqov (3290) should his name and seed be called; and he called Riv'qah (7259) and gave commandment
Ya'aqov (3290), for he knew that she (too) loved Ya'aqov (3290) much more than Esav (6215).
:And he said unto
My daughter, watch over my son Ya'aqov (3290),
For he shall be in my stead on the earth,
And for a blessing in the midst of the sons of men,
And for the glory of the whole seed of Shem (8035).
:For I know that Y'hovah (3068) will choose him to be a people for possession unto Himself,
peoples that are upon the face of the earth.
:And behold, Yits'chaq (3327) my son loves Esav (6215) more
than Ya'aqov (3290), but I see that thou truly lovest Ya'aqov (3290).
:Add still further to thy kindness to him,
And let thine eyes be upon him in love;
For he shall be a blessing unto us on the earth from henceforth unto all generations of the
:Let thy hands be strong
And let thy heart rejoice in thy son Ya'aqov (3290);
For I have loved him far beyond all my sons.
He shall be blessed for ever,
And his seed shall fill the whole earth.
:If a man can number the sand of the earth,
His seed also shall be numbered.
:And all the blessings wherewith Y'hovah (3068) hath blessed me and my seed shall belong to
Ya'aqov (3290) and
his seed alway.
:And in his seed shall my name be blessed, and the name of my fathers,

the firmament, and may He give thee all the blessings wherewith He blessed Adam (120), and Chanokh (2585),
and No'ach (5146), and Shem (8035); and all the things of which He told me, and all the things which He
promised to give me, may he cause to cleave to thee and to thy seed for ever, according to the
days of heaven above the

:And may Y'hovah (3068) Elohim (430) be a father to
thou the first-born son, and to the people alway.

:And Riv'qah (7259) loved Ya'aqov (3290), with all her heart and with all her
soul, very much more than Esav (6215); but Yits'chaq (3327) loved Esav (6215) much more than Ya'aqov (3290).
