1 So Isaac called Jacob and ablessed him and charged him, and said to him, “bYou shall not take a wife from the daughters of Canaan.

2 “Arise, go to Paddan-aram, to the house of aBethuel your mother’s father; and from there take to yourself a wife from the daughters of Laban your mother’s brother.

3 “May 1aGod Almighty bbless you and cmake you fruitful and dmultiply you, that you may become a ecompany of peoples.

4 “May He also give you the ablessing of Abraham, to you and to your 1descendants with you, that you may bpossess the land of your csojournings, which God gave to Abraham.”

5 Then aIsaac sent Jacob away, and he went to Paddan-aram to Laban, son of Bethuel the Aramean, the brother of Rebekah, the mother of Jacob and Esau.

6 Now Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob and sent him away to Paddan-aram to take to himself a wife from there, and that when he blessed him he charged him, saying, “aYou shall not take a wife from the daughters of Canaan,”

7 and that Jacob had obeyed his father and his mother and had gone to Paddan-aram.

8 So Esau saw that athe daughters of Canaan displeased 1his father Isaac;

9 and Esau went to Ishmael, and 1married, abesides the wives that he had, Mahalath the daughter of Ishmael, Abraham’s son, the sister of Nebaioth.
