Genesis 25:21-23 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised (NRSVA)

21 Isaac prayed to the Lord for his wife, because she was barren; and the Lord granted his prayer, and his wife Rebekah conceived. 22 The children struggled together within her; and she said, ‘If it is to be this way, why do I live?’[a] So she went to inquire of the Lord. 23 And the Lord said to her,

‘Two nations are in your womb,
    and two peoples born of you shall be divided;
one shall be stronger than the other,
    the elder shall serve the younger.’
