Ezekiel 35:

  • Esau traded his birthright for “red stew”, the beginning of the ancient hatred. The root meaning of Esau’s red stew is “pride”.
    Study notes in Genesis 25:30
    • The root meaning of “Stew” is “pride”.
    • Sea is symbolic for a “sea of people”; likewise, “waters”
    • The pride in men causes the sea of people to seethe, stew, fret, boil and worry.
    • Red also has its own symbolic meaning: It stands for both sin and redemption – From Abel’s red blood being murdered by his brother Cain to Jesus’ red blood given for the redemption of man.
    • If the water is red it is because the red sea dragon, Satan, is in the waters. He is called a sea monster, the Leviathan.
    • while Satan, who is described in scripture as a sea monster in the sea of people, Satan stirs up the waters and causes men to boil.
    • Esau’s “stew” is “red” and “boiling”.
