(Read Genesis 26 Part 1 First)

30 So Isaac prepared a great feast for them, and they ate and drank in preparation for the treaty ceremony.

31 Early the next morning, they each took a solemn oath of nonaggression. Then Isaac sent them home again in peace.

32 That very day Isaac's servants came and told him about a well they had dug. "We've found water!" they said.

33 So Isaac named the well "Oath,"* and from that time to this, the town that grew up there has been called Beersheba--"well of the oath."1

34 At the age of forty, Esau married a young woman named Judith, the daughter of Beeri the Hittite. He also married Basemath, the daughter of Elon the Hittite.

35 But Esau's wives made life miserable for Isaac and Rebekah.
