27:2 He said, "See now, I am old. I don`t know the day of my death.
27:4 Make me savory food, such as I love, and bring it to me, that I may eat, and that my soul may bless you before I die.
27:6 Rebekah spoke to Jacob her son, saying, "Behold, I heard your father speak to Esau your brother, saying,
27:7 `Bring me venison, and make me savory food, that I may eat, and bless you before Yahweh before my death.`
27:8 Now therefore, my son, obey my voice according to that which I command you.
27:10 You shall bring it to your father, that he may eat, so that he may bless you before his death."
27:11 Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, "Behold, Esau my brother is a hairy man, and I am a smooth man.
27:12 What if my father touches me? I will seem to him as a deceiver, and I would bring a curse on myself, and not a blessing."
27:13 His mother said to him, "Let your curse be on me, my son. Only obey my voice, and go get them for me."
27:14 He went, and got them, and brought them to his mother. His mother made savory food, such as his father loved.
27:15 Rebekah took the good clothes of Esau, her elder son, which were with her in the house, and put them on Jacob, her younger son.
27:18 He came to his father, and said, "My father?" He said, "Here I am. Who are you, my son?"
27:19 Jacob said to his father, "I am Esau your firstborn. I have done what you asked me to do. Please arise, sit and eat of my venison, that your soul may bless me."
27:23 He didn`t recognize him, because his hands were hairy, like his brother, Esau`s hands. So he blessed him.
27:24 He said, "Are you really my son Esau?" He said, "I am."
27:25 He said, "Bring it near to me, and I will eat of my son`s venison, that my soul may bless you." He brought it near to him, and he ate. He brought him wine, and he drank.
27:26 His father Isaac said to him, "Come near now, and kiss me, my son."
27:31 He also made savory food, and brought it to his father. He said to his father, "Let my father arise, and eat of his son`s venison, that your soul may bless me."
27:33 Isaac trembled violently, and said, "Who, then, is he who has taken venison, and brought it me, and I have eaten of all before you came, and have blessed him? Yes, he will be blessed."
27:35 He said, "Your brother came with deceit, and has taken away your blessing."
27:36 He said, "Isn`t he rightly named Jacob? For he has supplanted me these two times. He took away my birthright. See, now he has taken away my blessing." He said, "Haven`t you reserved a blessing for me?"
27:37 Isaac answered Esau, "Behold, I have made him your lord, and all his brothers have I given to him for servants. With grain and new wine have I sustained him. What then will I do for you, my son?"
27:39 Isaac his father answered him, "Behold, of the fatness of the earth will be your dwelling, and of the dew of the sky from above.
27:42 The words of Esau, her elder son, were told to Rebekah. She sent and called Jacob her younger son, and said to him, "Behold, your brother Esau comforts himself about you by planning to kill you.
27:43 Now therefore, my son, obey my voice. Arise, flee to Laban, my brother, in Haran.
27:44 Stay with him a few days, until your brother`s fury turns away;
27:46 Rebekah said to Isaac, "I am weary of my life because of the daughters of Heth. If Jacob takes a wife of the daughters of Heth, such as these, of the daughters of the land, what good will my life do me?
