Genesis 25:23, Who are the these two nations and are they modern day nations?

Question: Genesis 25:23 who are the these two nations are they modern day nations? Answer: The two sons are Jacob and Esau. Jacob was later named Israel by God (Gen 32:28), his 12 sons become the 12 tribes of Israel and collectively they are the nation of Israel. Esau became the father of the nation of Edom (Genesis 36). Israel is a modern day nation, they are descendants of Jacob. Edom is no longer a nation, just as God foretold in Ezekiel 35. -PJ
