NET © Notes

tn Heb “Swear to me today.”

tn Heb “and he”; the referent (Esau) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

sn And sold his birthright. There is evidence from Hurrian culture that rights of inheritance were occasionally sold or transferred. Here Esau is portrayed as a profane person who would at the moment rather have a meal than the right to inherit. He will soon forget this trade and seek his father’s blessing in spite of it.
