Brothers the children of Esau?
How odd to hear HaShem Blessed Glorious One, be so protective of the descendant of the one who gave his firs born birthright away for a bowl of lentil soup?!? How odd to hear G-D Almighty, be so loving to someone’s descendants that we read about in Malachi chapter 3 verses 1 thru 3 :The burden of the word of the LORD to Israel by Malachi.
I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say: ‘Wherein hast Thou loved us?’ Was not Esau Jacob’s brother? Saith the LORD; Yet I loved Jacob;
But Esau I hated, And made his mountains a desolation, And gave his heritage to the jackals of the wilderness.
Definition of divinations: The attempt to discern future events by such means as trances, visions, to name a few… or physical objects. The physical objects varied: rhabdomancy, the throwing of sticks or arrows into the air, hepatoscopy, examination of the liver or other organs of an animal, teraphim, images used for divination, necromancy, communication with the dead which is condemned by Law and the Prophets. Astrology, reading the stars and coming to conclusion on the basis of their positions and relations, or inducing a trance by this means.
GOD sternly condemn all means of seeking hidden knowledge and knowledge of the future apart from HIS Divine Revelation.
