There is a Grateful Dead song by John Barlow (lyricist) and Bob Weir called “My Brother Esau.” From a different tradition than “Esau,” yet a very interesting and somewhat mystical interpretation.

Denah S Bookstein
01:00:12
from the personal comes the universal
Dorothea Dorenz
01:08:24

The sheep always have bells on their necks, and his heart behaves like a bell, trembling his heart.
DAVID FREEDMAN
01:20:38
where did Esau get his motivation or strength to EMBRACE his brother
Heather Silverman
01:20:46
Something pings in his heart - she is his “true north” his true love. Does he also follow her like a sheep (that wears a bell perhaps)
Audrey Asher
01:21:20
bell ring is in the middle and the end, signaling his heart pinging
Heather Silverman
01:22:09
Esau has changed - thru love, as the poet believes. Or thru having made some sort of tshuvah
Audrey Asher
01:22:49
Esau healed over time, the scab grew
