Yaacov the First Born

   by Reb Gutman Locks


     How do we know that Hashem agrees that Esau actually sold his birthright to be the first born of Yitzchak and Rivka to Yacov? Hashem said so!

     Later, when Yitzchak sent Yacov away to take a wife from his mother's family, the Torah says, "So Yitzchak sent away Yacov toward Paddan-aram, to Laban the son of Bethuel the Aramean, brother of Rivka, mother of Yacov and Esau."[i]   

     Hashem put Yacov first. The Torah states that Yacov became Yitzchak and Rivka's first born.


[i] Genesis 28:5

  1. Thank you for this interesting Torah. I learned a while back that Yaakov was supposed to be born, literally, first, but Esav pushed himself forward to be come out first; so your above post completes the story. Beautiful & thank you.
