Genesis 25:21-23 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

21 Isaac prayed to the Lord for his wife because she was childless. The Lord answered his prayer, and his wife Rebekah became pregnant. 22 When the children inside her were struggling with each other, she said, “If it’s like this now, what will become of me?”[a] So she went to ask the Lord.

23 The Lord said to her,

“Two countries are in your womb.
Two nations will go their separate ways from birth.
One nation will be stronger than the other,
    and the older will serve the younger.”
