Genesis 25:28

וַ יֶּאֶהַב יִצְחָק אֶת עֵשָׂו כִּי צַיִד בְּ פִיו וְ רִבְקָה אֹהֶבֶת אֶת יַעֲקֹב
And He-Laughs is loving אֶת-Prepared, for a hunter* is in his mouth; and Stall-Fed is loving אֶת-Heel.

* The same word tsayid (#6718) is said to mean both hunter and hunted, as contradictory as that sounds. This translation does not render these words as “hunted” since the root verb (#6679) means to hunt and not “to be hunted”.
