19 But God said, “No, but Sarah your wife will bear you a son, and you shall call his name [a]Isaac; and I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant for his [b]descendants after him.
Genesis 25:21-26New American Standard Bible (NASB)
21 Isaac prayed to the Lord on behalf of his wife, because she was barren; and the Lord[a]answered him and Rebekah his wife conceived.22 But the children struggled together within her; and she said, “If it is so, why then am I this way?” So she went to inquire of the Lord.23 The Lord said to her,
“Two nations are in your womb; And two peoples will be separated from your body; And one people shall be stronger than the other; And the older shall serve the younger.”
24 When her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.25 Now the first came forth red, all over like a hairy garment; and they named him Esau.26 Afterward his brother came forth with his hand holding on to Esau’s heel, so his name was called [b]Jacob; and Isaac was sixty years old when she gave birth to them.
