Genesis 25:19–23 (ESV)

The Birth of Esau and Jacob

19 These are the generations of Isaac, Abraham’s son: Abraham fathered Isaac, 20 and Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah, the daughter of Bethuel the Aramean of Paddan-aram, the sister of Laban the Aramean, to be his wife. 21 And Isaac prayed to the Lord for his wife, because she was barren. And the Lord granted his prayer, and Rebekah his wife conceived. 22 The children struggled together within her, and she said, “If it is thus, why is this happening to me?” So she went to inquire of the Lord. 23 And the Lord said to her,

       “Two nations are in your womb,

and two peoples from within you shall be divided;

       the one shall be stronger than the other,

the older shall serve the younger.”

 

Abraham might have died, but Isaac and his wife become pregnant.  God grants them with twins.  They are fighting each other, even while still in the womb.  This will be a focal point that will come up again and again.  God tells them that there will be division between the two and that one will be stronger, but he also is indicating that the stronger child will serve the weaker child.  This will be a big issue, that we will see later on.

 

I pray: O Lord, help me to come to you when I don’t understand things and to trust our guidance.  Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
