"The descendants of the twin brothers, Jacob and Esau, became two distinct nations. But during their lives, Jacob and Esau lived at odds with each other. The Bible records the unflattering tale of how Israel’s forefather, Jacob, stole Esau’s rightful blessing from their father. When Jacob left the land running away from Esau, we don't really know what he
was thinking other than he wanted to stay alive and he hoped to one day come back. Eventually, Jacob did come back to the land, and he meets Esau in an unnerving scene. God had worked on Esau’s heart though, and Esau was glad to see his brother after so many years. This history of tension interestingly resurfaces hundreds of years later, when
Edom, the descendants of Esau, would not let Israel, the descendants of Jacob, travel through their territory (NUMBERS 20:14-21). The prophet Obadiah confronts Edom for their treatment of Israel.
