Are you referring to when Esau desired to slay Jacob but did not do so?
no when he went to him and they made amends in Genesis 33

Jacob looked up and saw Esau approaching with four hundred men. Jacob divided the children among Leah, Rachel, and the two women servants. 2 He put the servants and their children first, Leah and her children after them, and Rachel and Joseph last. 3 He himself went in front of them and bowed to the ground seven times as he was approaching his brother. 4 But Esau ran to meet him, threw his arms around his neck, kissed him, and they wept. 5 Esau looked up and saw the women and children and said, “Who are these with you?”

Jacob said, “The children that God generously gave your servant.” 6 The women servants and their children came forward and bowed down. 7 Then Leah and her servants also came forward and bowed, and afterward Joseph and Rachel came forward and bowed.

8 Esau said, “What’s the meaning of this entire group of animals that I met?”

Jacob said, “To ask for my master’s kindness.”

9 Esau said, “I already have plenty, my brother. Keep what’s yours.”

10 Jacob said, “No, please, do me the kindness of accepting my gift. Seeing your face is like seeing God’s face, since you’ve accepted me so warmly.

That's what I meant by my post. Earlier he said he would slay him; Genesis 27:41. Of course he did not do so when they met providentially.

They buried Isaac together..... There is very little doubt that Esau accepted the birthright of Jacob.

Gen 49:31 There they buried Abraham and Sarah his wife; there they buried Isaac and Rebekah his wife; and there I buried Leah.

Just like Isaac and Ishmael buried Abraham together. You see Ishmael bowing to the birthright of Isaac and Isaac loving accepting Ishmael. It is one of a few verses that are very clear in the setting the proper relationship between the children of Ishmael and children of Isaac. Every Muslim that I've ever shown this doesn't have an answer as to the needless enmity that exists between them.

You must realize that you can't take a moment in time statement and pretend it stays the same throughout all Eternity. I was once the enemy of God. I'm not now. I "bowed the knee" to God's will. I love Him. I once hated the very idea of Him.

God has never changed but we sure do. We MUST.
