You’ve probably heard of sibling rivalry – brothers and sisters often get on each other’s nerves. Regarding Yaakov and Eisav, “sibling rivalry” is a huge understatement.
As Yaakov and Eisav grew up, their opposite personalities became more and more clear. Eisav loved to go out into the fields to hunt animals, while Yaakov loved to stay in the tent to learn Torah. Eisav was cruel, even robbing and murdering innocent people, while Yaakov was thoughtful and well-mannered.
This constant conflict between the twins was like a ticking time bomb about to explode!
