The first came out reddish, and covered with hair all over like a hairy cloak. They named him “Esau.” Bible see other translations

“reddish.” The Hebrew reader already gets a peek at what will become of Esau. The word “reddish” is admon, which is a pun with Edom, the nation he would father.

“Esau.” The name means “hairy.”
