Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentils; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright. Hope This Helped.

What does sold his birthright for a mess of pottage mean?

In the Bible, Jakob and Esau were twins. Esau was born first, and was his father's heir. When their father was dying, Esau the hunter went out to try to find meat for his father, and came back famished, having failed to find any game. Jakob had prepared a meal of lentils, and Esau asked for some. Jakob set the price at Esau's inheritance. Esau replied "Of what use is this birthright to me? For behold, I am an-hungered and like to die.", and he sold his birthright for a mess of pottage. Thus the phrase means to exchange something of great value for immediate gain.
