EXT. JACOB'S TENT - DAY
Time-lapse: Esau-the-Red-man glares in hate at Jacob (the Cheater):
-- In the field;
-- At Jacob's tent;
-- chopping wood;
Esau's lover-slave Aholibamah runs from Esau's bed to Rebekah's tent.
Esau schemes to murder Jacob the Cheater!
Rebekah runs to the forest, finds cold, wet Jacob hiding under a rock beneath a giant tree-root.
Your brother [Rough-Red] Esau comforts himself with plans to murder you!
Son, obey my voice.
Rise. Flee to uncle Laban [Whitey], my relative
In [the parched desert of] Haran?
Save your life!
I'll die of thirst!
Stay with Laban [Whitey] a while, until your brother [Esau's] fury recedes.
He'll steal back my inheritance back!
Your brother's anger will turn away from you. [Rough-Red] Esau will forget what you did to him. Then I'll send [camels and workers to] fetch you from [parched] Haran.
Fetch my corpse!
Why should [YAH] bereave me of two sons in one day — [Esau murdering you, then your avenger-of-blood murdering Esau]?
Jacob reaches out his hand to Rebekah as she runs back through the forest toward the tents.
INT. ISAAC'S TENT - NIGHT (SHORTLY LATER)
(to old Isaac)
We have to send Jacob away to the Hebrews.
Because I'm sick to death of [Esau's pagan wives,] the [Hittite] daughters-of-Terror.
If Jacob also takes a wife from the daughters of Terror, the (god-forsaken] hussies of this territory, my life won’t be worth living!
