Genesis 25:24-26 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)

24 When it was time for her to give birth, it was true: There were twins in her womb. 25 The first came out red all over, like a hairy garment. They named him Esau.[a] 26 After that, his brother came out, with his hand grabbing Esau’s heel. So he was named Jacob.[b] Isaac was sixty years old when she gave birth to them.

Footnotes:
