MARRIAGE STUDY ON ISAAC AND REBEKAH MARRIAGE STORY WITH ISAAC AND REBEKAH

peace with one another. The same day, Isaacís servants told him that they
had found water.

years old, he took two wives that were from Canaan. This troubled Isaac and

Jacob actually received not only Esauís birthright but the blessing that his
Dad, but NOT God, intended for Isaacís oldest son Esau. It is what makes
