Genesis 25:20 – 28 for nursery and kindergarten children
|20 … Yitzchak was 40 years old, when he married Rivkah…
21 For many years they had no children. Yitzchak prayed to God for his wife. She became pregnant with twins.
22 Then, the babies were crushing each other inside of her. She said, “Why is this happening to me?” And she went to ask Adonai.
23 Adonai said to her,
Two nations are in your belly!
One will be stronger than the other, but the older one will serve the smaller one.
25 When Rivkah had the babies, the first one came out reddish, and all hairy, like he was wearing a fur cape. And they called his shem Esav. 26 And after that, his brother came out, and his hand was grabbing onto Esav’s akev (his heel), so they called his shem, Ya’akov, which comes from the word for heel. 27 The boys grew up. Esav became a hunter. Ya’akov was a quiet man who stayed in the tents 28 Yitzchak liked meat and so he loved Esav. But Rivkah loved Ya’akov.
|כ וַיְהִי יִצְחָק בֶּן-אַרְבָּעִים שָׁנָה בְּקַחְתּוֹ אֶת-רִבְקָה…
כא וַיֶּעְתַּר יִצְחָק לַיהוָה לְנֹכַח אִשְׁתּוֹ כִּי עֲקָרָה הִוא וַיֵּעָתֶר לוֹ יְהוָה וַתַּהַר רִבְקָה אִשְׁתּוֹ
כב וַיִּתְרֹצְצוּ הַבָּנִים בְּקִרְבָּהּ וַתֹּאמֶר אִם-כֵּן לָמָּה זֶּה אָנֹכִי וַתֵּלֶךְ לִדְרֹשׁ אֶת-יְהוָה
כג וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה לָהּ
שְׁנֵי גֹיִים בְּבִטְנֵךְ וּשְׁנֵי לְאֻמִּים מִמֵּעַיִךְ יִפָּרֵדוּ
וּלְאֹם מִלְאֹם יֶאֱמָץ וְרַב יַעֲבֹד צָעִיר
כד וַיִּמְלְאוּ יָמֶיהָ לָלֶדֶת וְהִנֵּה תוֹמִם בְּבִטְנָהּ כה וַיֵּצֵא הָרִאשׁוֹן אַדְמוֹנִי כֻּלּוֹ כְּאַדֶּרֶת שֵׂעָר וַיִּקְרְאוּ שְׁמוֹ עֵשָׂו כו וְאַחֲרֵי-כֵן יָצָא אָחִיו וְיָדוֹ אֹחֶזֶת בַּעֲקֵב עֵשָׂו וַיִּקְרָא שְׁמוֹ יַעֲקֹב
