“And the Lord said to her, Two nations are in your womb; two regimes from your insides shall be separated; the power shall pass from one regime to the other and the elder shall serve the younger. Bereshet/Genesis 25:23

Rivka, wife of Yitzchak, conceived twins, Esav and Ya’akov, who were revealed in prophecy to become leaders of great nations. Rivka assisted in a deception that gave the birthright to Ya’akov, the younger and more holy son.
