Genesis 27:39-40

39-40Isaac said to him,

You'll live far from Earth's bounty,

remote from Heaven's dew.

You'll live by your sword, hand-to-mouth,

and you'll serve your brother.

But when you can't take it any more

you'll break loose and run free.

41Esau seethed in anger against Jacob because of the blessing his father had given him; he brooded, "The time for mourning my father's death is close. And then I'll kill my brother Jacob."
