And The Answer Is...

There are two sets of twins mentioned in the Bible and can be found in Genesis.

Melody is correct.

And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau.

And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau's heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore years old when she bare them.

And it came to pass, as he drew back his hand, that, behold, his brother came out: and she said, How hast thou broken forth? this breach be upon thee: therefore his name was called Pharez.

And afterward came out his brother, that had the scarlet thread upon his had: and his name was called Zarah.

NOTE: when you read Genesis there are two births which you can mistake as more sets of twins but they are not. They are Cain and Abel, Peleg and Joktan.

Next question should post soon.
