I had a look at what Rashi has to say and frankly it is a little different. He seems to expound on folklore.
Esau tried to escape the womb when Mom passed by an Idol? Jacob tried to escape the womb when she walked by a temple?
Esau, through the time he was apparently a skillful hunter, was a righteous man. He was deceived by Jacob who took his birthright for a bowl of stew and Jacob who tricked his father when he went to claim it. I would venture to say that Jacob was the cunning one and Esau got the raw end of the deal. Up until that point Easu was, according to the bible, righteous then he lost it at the birthright and reconciled later. The story has a happy ending.
Still we have not reached an agreement on the topic only to eliminate the character of a man from the equation.
What then can we take away from this selection?
Hunting was mentioned no more no less? These verses do not prove right or wrong in the eyes of God?
