יעקבwas cooking red lentil stew. עשוcame in starving from hunting and wanted to eat the stew—he told יעקבto pour
the red stuff in his mouth.
יעקבgave the stew to עשוin exchange for the בכורה, which עשוclaimed not to care about. יעקבcooked a meal for יצחק
and dressed up like עשוso he could get the most important ברכהfrom יצחקas the new בכור. יצחקfelt him because he
said the voice sounded like יעקב, but his hands felt like ’עשוs.
