{Genesis 25:25} And the first 7223 came out 3318 z8799 red, 132 all over x3605 like an hairy 8181 garment; 155 and they called 7121 z8799 his name 8034 Esau. 6215
Esau:
The word Esau has been generally considered to imply made, formed, or perfected; or perfect, robust, etc. But it appears to be a dialectical variation of the Arabic atha, to be covered with hair; whence athai, hairy, as no doubt the word Esau imports, in allusion to the circumstance of his being covered with red hair or down at his birth. "And Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, Behold, Esau my brother [is] a hairy man, and I [am] a smooth man:" {Gen 27:11} + "And she put the skins of the kids of the goats upon his hands, and upon the smooth of his neck:" {Gen 27:16} + "And he discerned him not, because his hands were hairy, as his brother Esau's hands: so he blessed him." {Gen 27:23}
