What is pottage and why is it a mess in the bible?
A Google search finds this:
A mess of pottage is something of little value carelessly exchanged for something of great value, alluding to Esau's sale of his birthright for a meal of lentil stew ("pottage") in Genesis 25:29-34. The phrase connotes shortsightedness and misplaced priorities, the exchange of something immediately attractive for something more distant and perhaps less tangible but in the last analysis infinitely more valuable.
Pottage = bean stew.Healthy food, cheap 2 eat.I wasn't there b/t Jacob and Esau.Bad business.
That is what you smoke in your bongage.
When the word "mess" is used pertaining to foodstuff, it refers to an amount of food. A "mess" of greens, for instance.
