Tradition and custom gives the inheritance to the first born son. There are a significantly higher proportion of second sons who get the inheritance in the scripture than would be expected. In the list of first and second sons, sometimes the position is discerned by riddle rather than by literal methods.

The first son represents the first man (Adam) and the fleshly nature. The second son represents the second man (Christ) and the heavenly nature.

Motif: First and second sons
