Relatively few people have ever heard that Esau killed Nimrod, and then despised his birthright. We are going to see today that Esau, like Nimrod, had a desire to rule the world; what would an extra portion over his brother matter to Esau in light of world domination?
Again, it is the book of Yasher that has provided “the rest of the story.”
After Terah’s son [Abram] was born, Nimrod had a dream. Here is the interpretation.
Yasher 12:50 And the king was grieved at the sight, and he awoke out of his sleep and his spirit was agitated; and he felt a great terror.
51 And in the morning the king rose from his couch in fear, and he ordered all the wise men and magicians to come before him, when the king related his dream to them.
52 And a wise servant of the king, whose name was Anuki, answered the king, saying, This is nothing else but the evil of Abram and his seed which will spring up against my master and king in the latter days.
Esau Killed Nimrod!
And in fact one of Abram’s seed, a wicked seed, did spring up in Nimrod’s latter days and kill him.
Yasher 27:4 And on a certain day Esau went in the field to hunt, and he found Nimrod walking in the wilderness with his two men.
5 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 from Nimrod, and he lurked for him in the wilderness.
6 And Nimrod and his men that were with him did not know, and Nimrod and his men frequently walked about in the field at the cool of the day, and to know where his men were hunting in the field.
7 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.
8 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.
Nimrod Ruled With The Garments Which Elohim Made For Adam And His Woman
Nimrod had the garments that Yehovah made for Adam and his woman; they had been handed down to him through Ham and made him strong. It was these garments that were coveted by Esau.
Yasher 7:24 And the garments of skin which God made for Adam and his woman, when they went out of the garden, were given to Cush.
25 For after the death of Adam and his woman, the garments were given to Enoch, the son of Jared, and when Enoch was taken up to God, he gave them to Methuselah, his son.
26 And at the death of Methuselah, Noah took them and brought them to the ark, and they were with him until he went out of the ark.
27 And in their going out, Ham stole those garments from Noah his father, and he took them and hid them from his brothers.
28 And when Ham begat his first-born Cush, he gave him the garments in secret, and they were with Cush many days.
29 And Cush also concealed them from his sons and brothers, and when Cush had begotten Nimrod, he gave him those garments through his love for him, and Nimrod grew up, and when he was twenty years old he put on those garments.
30 And Nimrod became strong when he put on the garments, …
Esau Stole The Garments
Yasher 27:10 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 Then Esau Despised His birthright
Now we know why Esau was so weary when he came from the field and met Jacob and was so nonchalant about his birthright.
Yasher 27:11 And Esau took those garments and ran into the city on account of Nimrod’s men, and he came unto his father’s house wearied and exhausted from fight, and he was ready to die through grief when he approached his brother Jacob and sat before him.
12 And he said unto 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 Yehovah.
13 And Esau’s portion in the cave of the field of Machpelah, which Abraham had bought from the sons of Heth for the possession of a burial ground, Esau also sold to Jacob, and Jacob bought all this from his brother Esau for value given.
Now Jacob cooked a stew; and Esau came in from the field, and he was weary. And Esau said to Jacob, “Please feed me with that same red stew, for I am weary.” Therefore his name was called Edom. But Jacob said, “Sell me your birthright as of this day.” And Esau said, “Look, I am about to die; so what is this birthright to me?” Then Jacob said, “Swear to me as of this day.” So he swore to him, and sold his birthright to Jacob. And Jacob gave Esau bread and stew of lentils; then he ate and drank, arose, and went his way, thus Esau despised his birthright. (Gen 25:29-34)
I wonder who currently has those garments. If it is the very fleshly descendants of Esau that rule the earth now, we (Israel’s seed) will fight with them again. I talk a lot about that in this portion. Please watch the video, listen to this audio or download it for your mp3 player and listen to it later.

Thanks for the information
I HAVE CAME TO THE SAME CONCLUSION, THAT IT WAS ESAU THAT KILLED NIMROD, MY QUESTION IS THE SAME, WHERE OR WHO HAS THE COATS GOD MADE ADAM AND EVE. DO YOU THINK ITS STILL OUT THERE SOMEWHERE OR SOMEONE HAS FOUND IT. PLEASE REPLY. SHALOM.
Esau was the last to have them, that was 2123 years after creation. They did not do Esau, or his seed, any good during the many times they fought against Israel. Do they still exist 4000 years later. My guess is, probably not. But if they do, true Israel, Yehovah Ezrach men need not fear; though the Gentiles should maybe be concerned. 🙂
Wow this read blew my mind! (In a good way!) Thank you!!!
Thanks for the teaching
That garment belongs to the Ethiopians Eusae went to to Europe and took over Europe Javan’s land Brittania with that garment eusu stole from Nimrod
I have never heard that before.
Could they have been in Austria when Hitler took over? He very well could have possessed them. It would explain him surviving explosions, standing up in his staff car, his want for world domination, and his undeniable hate for Jews… It makes a lot of sense if you ask me.
Esau killed nimrod? So are the Armenians telling tall tales when they say it was Hayk who had slain him? Hayk was a son of Togarmah whom Armenians all claim decadents from. How can this be reconciled?
Hi Kenneth! I guess I would have to say someone is wrong. For me Yasher explains a lot of what was going on in Genesis as a whole and in this case Genesis 25 specifically.
I guess putting faith in written tradition is risky. Story telling came from lips before it came from paper. Just like the Logos, so someone is lying and this is a big deal and it must be admonished. It’s hard to build a foundation when all these contradictions are here. This is my goal in life and it should be for every soul on earth to discover the truth and vet it.
If I remember correctly, the garments were somehow kept in, I think, a drawer on the table of showbread in the Holy Temple. I know that they were in the Jewish Temple in some piece of furniture, but I don’t know where, maybe the ark itself.
I have never read or heard such a thing Tyson. I speculate that Esau’s seed, the generations of Esau may still have them with false hopes of ruling the earth.
If they still have them it would be the Palestinians or Jordanians who would be the most likely to have them. However there is a major qualifying but! Remember the Egyptians, Syrians. Assyrians, Babylonians and Persians all plundered these lands and would have taken these items as plunder. Plus king David and other kings of of Judah and Israel conquered them and took all their wealth. King Saul also plundered them. As the Israelites would have known about this things they would have made very sure that they took these items to keep them safe and away from godless use and misuse. Remember Goliaths armour and sword were kept at shiloh until the temple was built! My feeling is if they ever existed after the flood they would be with the temple treasures such as the ark of the covenant and so on. This would make the most sense. And l do not believe in anyway that these items are residing in Ethiopia as Menelik was a bastard nor was he in the line of the promise as such and he belonged to a gentile race as well. So there are very good reasons for my view being valid. Plus it was still the temple artifacts were still there when Josiah had his reform and temple refurbishing programs. There are time when these items would not have been in the temple ie Hezekiah’s fathers apostasy and that of his son and king Joram and queen Athaliah’s apostasies . There is good reason for this position. It was there when Isaiah was called as he sees God sitting upon the ark enthroned as king when he is called. However one can surmise it is hidden by the time of Ezekiel’s vision of God’s presence leaving Jerusalem and the promised land and comes to speak to him in Babylonia by the river where he lives and works. This means God has left taking his shekinah or his presence and glory from the people because of their gross apostasy.
I guess everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
It is. Not just a case if my opinion. Its a case of reality and what happened back then . The things I mention actually Did happen and that cannot be changed and while it possible something could have led to such items being hidden, history has been silent on them for millenia. I am very doubfull they would exist after the passage of time. Its not as is they are the temple vessels. Even the so called discovery of Nimrod in his funnery glory has not been in the media and the picture as it exists is very poor and makes one suspicious that it might but a spoof job.
False hope indeed cause they rule the world now but God will defend the Israelites and give them victory. Not the Jewish ppl tho the true Hebrew Israelite
The Edomites should be afraid!!!
Shalom. This is brilliant. Todah for the insight.
My thinking is perhaps Rivka put these garments on Yaakov when he stole the “Blessing.” But Yaakov didn’t use them for evil. And maybe this is what deterred Esau from quarreling with him when he returned to the land? As well, Yaakov had the strength from the mantle to actually wrestle the melek of Yahovah. Thus, the power was returned to Israel, rightfully.
But, where they are now is anybody’s guess?
