The Birthright

Others says that Ishmael was cheated by Isaac able and got the blessing of “Birthright” from their father Abraham.
Witness the insight of the story based written in the scripture with regards to this:
Genesis 25:24-When the time for her to give birth (Rebekah
the wife​ of Abraham),there were twin boys in her womb.The first to come out was Red,and his body was like a hairy garment,so they named him Esau.After this his brother came out, with his hand grasping with Esau’s heel;so he named Jacob.Isaac(father of twins)was 60 years old when Rebekah gave birth to them.
The boys grew up and Esau became the skillful Hunter,a Man of the​ open country.While Jacob was a quiet man, staying among the tents.Isaac ,who had the taste for wild game,loved Esau,but Rebekah loved Jacob
Once when Jacob cooking some stew,Esau came from the open country, famished,he said to Jacob,”Quick let me have some of that red stew” I am famished.
Jacob replied,”first sell me your “Birthright”.
“Look, I am able to die”,Esau said,”what good is the “Birthright to me”.But Jacob said,”Swear to me first”,So Esau swore an oath to him, selling his “Birthright” to Jacob…
So,Esau despised his “Birthright”.
Genesis 27:1-40 – Jacob gets Esau’s blessing.
Here is another verse story :
Ishmael was a son of Abraham from Egyptian named Hagar and Isaac from Sarah as Abraham’s original wife.
Genesis 21:9-14 – But Sarah saw that the son whom Hagar the Egyptian had borne to Abraham,was mocking,and sh said to Abraham,”Get rid of that slave woman’s son will never share in the inheritance with my son Isaac”.
-So Hagar and Ishmael sent away by Abraham as God commanded.
So,was not Isaac got the Birthright of Ishmael.And the Bible plainly declares that Isaac is a son of Promise​ – The Heirs.
