3 “Now then, please take your gear, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and ahunt game for me;
4 and prepare a savory dish for me such as I love, and bring it to me that I may eat, so that amy soul may bless you before I die.”
6 aRebekah said to her son Jacob, “Behold, I heard your father speak to your brother Esau, saying,
13 But his mother said to him, “Your curse be on me, my son; only aobey my voice, and go, get them for me.”
16 And she put the skins of the 1young goats on his hands and on the smooth part of his neck.
17 She also gave the savory food and the bread, which she had made, 1to her son Jacob.
20 Isaac said to his son, “How is it that you have it so quickly, my son?” And he said, “aBecause the Lord your God caused it to happen to me.”
21 Then Isaac said to Jacob, “Please come close, that aI may feel you, my son, whether you are really my son Esau or not.”
23 He did not recognize him, because his hands were ahairy like his brother Esau’s hands; so he blessed him.
27 So he came close and kissed him; and when he smelled the smell of his garments, he ablessed him and said,
“See, bthe smell of my son
Is like the smell of a field cwhich the Lord has blessed;
28 Now may aGod give you of the dew of heaven,
And of the bfatness of the earth,
And an abundance of grain and new wine;
29 aMay peoples serve you,
And nations bow down to you;
bBe master of your brothers,
cAnd may your mother’s sons bow down to you.
dCursed be those who curse you,
And blessed be those who bless you.”
