The book of Jasher also tells us that "Esau was a designing and deceitful man, and an expert hunter in the field, and Jacob was a man perfect and wise, dwelling in tents, feeding flocks and learning the instruction of the Lord and the commands of his father and mother" (v.17). But Esau had no time for godly instruction. He was a self-filled man of vehement action and notoriety.
According to the book of Jasher, when Esau was 16 years of age, and already a powerful hunter, he performed a stunning feat. We read how as a young virile man, he found the old king Nimrod, ruler of Babylon at that time, in the field hunting, set a trap for him, ambushed him, and killed him, stealing the "holy garments" he had received from his father Cush -- the very garments Ham had secretly stolen from Noah on the Ark -- the animal skins which God Himself had rendered into clothing for Adam and Eve, after their sin! Says Jasher:
"And Esau at that time, after the death of Abraham, frequently went into the field
to hunt. And Nimrod king of Babel, the same was Amraphel, also frequently
went with his mighty men to hunt in the field, and to walk about in the cool of
the day. And Nimrod was observing Esau all the days, for a jealousy was
formed in the heart of Nimrod against Esau all the days.
"And on a certain day Esau went into the field to hunt, and he found Nimrod
walking in the wilderness with his two men. And all his mighty men and his
people were with him in the wilderness, but they removed at a distance from
him, and they went from him in different directions to hunt, and Esau concealed
himself for Nimrod, and he lurked for him in the wilderness. . . .
"And Nimrod and two of his men that were with him came to the place where
they were when Esau started suddenly from his lurking place, and drew his sword,
and hastened, and ran to Nimrod and cut off his head.
"And Esau fought a desperate fight with the two men that were with Nimrod, and
when they called out to him, Esau turned to them and smote them to death with
his sword. . . . And when Esau saw the mighty men of Nimrod coming at a distance,
he fled, and thereby escaped; and Esau took the valuable garments of Nimrod, which
Nimrod's father had bequeathed to Nimrod, and with which Nimrod prevailed over
the whole land, and he ran and concealed them in his house.
"And Esau took those garments and ran into the city on account of Nimrod's men,
and he came into his father's house weary and exhausted from fight, and he was
ready to die through grief when he approached his brother Jacob and sat before him.
And he said to his brother Jacob, Behold I shall die this day, and wherefore then do
I want the birthright? And Jacob acted wisely with Esau in this matter, and Esau
sold his birthright to Jacob, for it was so brought about by the Lord" (Jasher 27:1-15).
