P T 1
19This is the account of the family line of Abraham’s son Isaac.
Abraham became the father of Isaac,
20and Isaac was forty years old when he married Rebekah daughter of Bethuel the Aramean from Paddan Aram and sister of Laban the Aramean.
21Isaac prayed to the Lord on behalf of his wife, because she
was childless. The Lord answered his prayer, and his wife Rebekah became pregnant.
22The babies jostled each other within her, and she said, “Why
is this happening to me?” So she went to inquire of the Lord.
23The Lord said to her,
“Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples from within
you will be separated; one people will be stronger than the other, and the older will serve the younger.”
Only God can determine the future.
