Din dicționarul Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Birthright
     (1.) This word denotes the special privileges and advantages
     belonging to the first-born son among the Jews. He became the
     priest of the family. Thus Reuben was the first-born of the
     patriarchs, and so the priesthood of the tribes belonged to him.
     That honour was, however, transferred by God from Reuben to Levi
     (Num. 3:12, 13; 8:18).
     
       (2.) The first-born son had allotted to him also a double
     portion of the paternal inheritance (Deut. 21:15-17). Reuben
     was, because of his undutiful conduct, deprived of his
     birth-right (Gen. 49:4; 1 Chr. 5:1). Esau transferred his
     birth-right to Jacob (Gen. 25:33).
     
       (3.) The first-born inherited the judicial authority of his
     father, whatever it might be (2 Chr. 21:3). By divine
     appointment, however, David excluded Adonijah in favour of
     Solomon.
     
       (4.) The Jews attached a sacred importance to the rank of
     "first-born" and "first-begotten" as applied to the Messiah
     (Rom. 8:29; Col. 1:18; Heb. 1:4-6). As first-born he has an
     inheritance superior to his brethren, and is the alone true
     priest.
