After years of waiting for children, Isaac and Rebekah finally had twin boys. The older twin they named Esau, and the younger they called Jacob. As the boys grew it became obvious they were turning out to be as different as night and day. Esau loved to hunt. He was a rough sort of character with lots of hair, and felt most at home when he was outdoors all the time. Unfortunately, he cared little for spiritual things, and this disappointed his parents.
