Genesis 25:24-26 Amplified Bible (AMP)

24 When her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb. 25 The first came out reddish all over like a hairy garment; and they named him Esau (hairy). 26 Afterward his brother came out, and his hand grasped Esau’s heel, so he was named Jacob ([a]one who grabs by the heel, supplanter). Isaac was sixty years old when Rebekah gave birth to them.
