Genesis 25:21-23 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

21 Rebekah still had no children. So Isaac asked the Lord to let her have a child, and the Lord answered his prayer.

22 Before Rebekah gave birth, she knew she was going to have twins, because she could feel them inside her, fighting each other. She thought, “Why is this happening to me?” Finally, she asked the Lord why her twins were fighting, 23 and he told her:

“Your two sons will become
    two separate nations.[a]
The younger of the two
    will be stronger,
and the older son
    will be his servant.”

Footnotes:

  1. 25.23 two separate nations: Or “two nations always in conflict.”
