    10. 10.  Genesis 25:24-26 (NIV)24 When the time came for her to give birth, there were twin boys in her womb. 25 The first to come out was red, and his whole body was like a hairy garment; so they named him Esau. 26 After this, his brother came out, with his hand grasping Esau&apos;s heel; so he was named Jacob. Isaac was sixty years old when Rebekah gave birth to them.<br />
    11. 11. Genesis 25:27-28 (NIV)<br />27The boys grew up, and Esau became a skillful hunter, a man of the open country, while Jacob was a quiet man, staying among the tents. 28 Isaac, who had a taste for wild game, loved Esau, but Rebekah loved Jacob.<br />
    12. 12. Genesis 25:29-31 29 Once when Jacob was cooking some stew, Esau came in from the open country, famished. 30 He said to Jacob, &quot;Quick, let me have some of that red stew! I&apos;m famished!&quot; (That is why he was also called Edom.) <br /> 31 Jacob replied, &quot;First sell me your birthright.&quot;<br />
    13. 13. Genesis 25:32-34 32 &quot;Look, I am about to die,&quot; Esau said. &quot;What good is the birthright to me?&quot; <br /> 33 But Jacob said, &quot;Swear to me first.&quot; So he swore an oath to him, selling his birthright to Jacob. <br /> 34 Then Jacob gave Esau some bread and some lentil stew. He ate and drank, and then got up and left.       So Esau despised his birthright.<br />

    15. 15. Genesis 37: 3-4<br />3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than any of his other sons, because he had been born to him in his old age; and he made a richly ornamented robe for him. 4 When his brothers saw that their father loved him more than any of them, they hated him and could not speak a kind word to him.<br />
    16. 16. Genesis 37: 5-8<br />5 Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him all the more. 6 He said to them, &quot;Listen to this dream I had: 7 We were binding sheaves of grain out in the field when suddenly my sheaf rose and stood upright, while your sheaves gathered around mine and bowed down to it.&quot; <br /> 8 His brothers said to him, &quot;Do you intend to reign over us? Will you actually rule us?&quot; And they hated him all the more because of his dream and what he had said.<br />
    17. 17. Genesis 37: 19-20<br />19 &quot;Here comes that dreamer!&quot; they said to each other. 20 &quot;Come now, let&apos;s kill him and throw him into one of these cisterns and say that a ferocious animal devoured him. Then we&apos;ll see what comes of his dreams.&quot;<br />
    18. 18. Genesis 37: 25-28<br />25 As they sat down to eat their meal, they looked up and saw a caravan of Ishmaelites coming from Gilead. Their camels were loaded with spices, balm and myrrh, and they were on their way to take them down to Egypt. <br /> 26 Judah said to his brothers, &quot;What will we gain if we kill our brother and cover up his blood? 27 Come, let&apos;s sell him to the Ishmaelites and not lay our hands on him; after all, he is our brother, our own flesh and blood.&quot; His brothers agreed. <br /> 28 So when the Midianite merchants came by, his brothers pulled Joseph up out of the cistern and sold him for twenty shekels of silver to the Ishmaelites, who took him to Egypt.<br />
    19. 19. Genesis 50:20<br />20 You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.<br />
