Genesis 25:19-34
19
These are the generations of Abraham’s son Isaac.Isaac was the son of Abraham.
20
At the age of forty Isaac married Rebecca,daughter of Bethuel the Aramean from Paddan-aram, and sister of Laban theAramean.
21
Isaac prayed to Y
HWH
on behalf of Rebecca, for they had no children. Godlistened to the prayers and Rebecca conceived.
22
The babies in her wombstruggled with each other. Rebecca said, “If this is the way it is to be, why go onliving?” She asked for divine guidance and
23
Y
HWH
said to her, “Two nations are in your womb,two tribes in your belly who will be rivals.One will be stronger than the other,and the older will serve the younger.” 
24
When the time came for her to deliver, she gave birth to twin boys.
25
The firstto enter the world was very ruddy, and had so much hair on his body that helooked as if he was wearing a fur coat. So they named him Esau, “Rough One.” 
26
When the second came out, he was grasping Esau’s heel, so they named himJacob, “Heel-Grabber.” Isaac was sixty years old when Rebecca delivered thetwins.
27
The children grew up. Esau became a skilled hunter and enjoyed the opencountry, while the quiet Jacob preferred to stay at home.
28
Isaac, who especiallyenjoyed wild game, favored Esau while Rebecca favored Jacob.
29
One day, when Jacob was cooking a stew, Esau came in from hunting, famished.
30
He said to Jacob, “I’m starving—let me have some of the red stuff, that redstew.” This is why he was also called Edom, “Red One.” 
31
Jacob replied, “Not until you sell me the rights you own from being firstborn.” 
32
Esau replied, “Here I am ravenous for food. What good is my birthright to menow?” 
33
Jacob said, “Swear to me first!” So Esau swore to Jacob and sold his birthright.
34
Only then did Jacob give Esausome bread and the lentil stew. He ate and drank, then got up and left. This ishow little Esau valued his birthright
 
Psalm 119:105-112
105
Now I know your word is a lamp for my steps,for the path just ahead of me.
106
I resolve and swearto keep your ordinances of justice.
107
I have suffered much, Y
HWH
give me life as you have promised.
108
Please accept my heartfelt praises, Y
HWH
,and teach me your decrees.
109
Though constantly I take my life in my hands,I never forgot your Law.
110
The corrupt laid their traps for me,but I haven’t strayed from your precepts.
111
Your decrees are all the inheritance I’ll ever want—they’re the joy of my heart.
112
I set my heart to keep your statutes,forever and to the letter.
Romans 8:1-11
1
There is no longer any condemnation, however, for those who are in ChristJesus.
2
The law of the Spirit—the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus—has freed you fromthe law of sin and death.
3
What the Law was powerless to do because humannature made it so weak, God did—by sending the Only Begotten in the likeness of sinful flesh as a sin offering, thereby condemning sin in the flesh.
4
In this way, the just demands of the Law could be fulfilled in us, who live not according to the fleshbut according to the Spirit.
5
Those who live according to the flesh have their mindset on the things of the flesh; those who live by the Spirit, on things of the Spirit.
6
The mind of the flesh is death, but that of the Spirit is life and peace.
7
The mindof the flesh stands in opposition to God; it is not subject to God’s law—indeed, itcannot be,
8
since those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
9
But you are notin the flesh; you are in the Spirit, since the Spirit of God dwells in you. Those whodo not have the Spirit of Christ do not belong to Christ.
10
But if Christ is in you,then though the body is dead because of sin, the spirit lives because of righteousness.
11
If the Spirit of the One who raised Jesus from the dead dwells inyou, then the One who raised Christ from the dead will also bring your mortalbodies to life through the Spirit dwelling in you.
