1 H1961 [H8799] And it came to pass, H3327 that when Isaac H2204 [H8804] was old, H5869 and his eyes H3543 [H8799] were dim, H7200 [H8800] so that he could not see, H7121 [H8799] he called H6215 Esau H1419 his eldest H1121 son, H559 [H8799] and said H1121 to him, My son: H559 [H8799] and he said to him, Behold, here am I.
2 H559 [H8799] And he said, H2204 [H8804] Behold now, I am old, H3045 [H8804] I know H3117 not the day H4194 of my death:
3 H5375 [H8798] Now therefore take, H3627 I pray thee, thy weapons, H8522 thy quiver H7198 and thy bow, H3318 [H8798] and go out H7704 to the field, H6679 [H8798] and take H6718 H6720 [H8675] me some venison;
4 H6213 [H8798] And make H4303 me savoury meat, H834 such as H157 [H8804] I love, H935 [H8685] and bring H398 [H8799] it to me, that I may eat; H5315 that my breath H1288 [H8762] may bless H2962 thee before H4191 [H8799] I die.
5 H7259 And Rebekah H8085 [H8802] heard H3327 when Isaac H1696 [H8763] spoke H6215 to Esau H1121 his son. H6215 And Esau H3212 [H8799] went H7704 to the field H6679 [H8800] to hunt H6718 for venison, H935 [H8687] and to bring it.
6 H7259 And Rebekah H559 [H8804] spoke H3290 to Jacob H1121 her son, H559 [H8800] saying, H8085 [H8804] Behold, I heard H1 thy father H1696 [H8764] speak H6215 to Esau H251 thy brother, H559 [H8800] saying,
7 H935 [H8685] Bring H6718 me venison, H6213 [H8798] and make H4303 me savoury meat, H398 [H8799] that I may eat, H1288 [H8762] and bless H6440 thee at the face of H3068 the LORD H6440 at the face of H4194 my death.
8 H1121 Now therefore, my son, H8085 [H8798] hearken H6963 to my voice H834 according to that which H6680 [H8764] I command thee.
9 H3212 [H8798] Go H6629 now to the flock, H3947 [H8798] and bring H8147 me from there two H2896 good H1423 kids H5795 of the goats; H6213 [H8799] and I will make H4303 them savoury meat H1 for thy father, H157 [H8804] such as he loveth:
10 H935 [H8689] And thou shalt bring H1 it to thy father, H398 [H8804] that he may eat, H834 and that H1288 [H8762] he may bless H6440 thee at the face of H4194 his death.
11 H3290 And Jacob H559 [H8799] said H7259 to Rebekah H517 his mother, H6215 Behold, Esau H251 my brother H8163 is a hairy H376 man, H2509 and I am a smooth H376 man:
12 H1 My father H4959 [H8799] perhaps will feel H5869 me, and I shall seem H8591 [H8772] to him as a deceiver; H935 [H8689] and I shall bring H7045 a curse H1293 upon me, and not a blessing.
13 H517 And his mother H559 [H8799] said H7045 to him, Upon me be thy curse, H1121 my son: H8085 [H8798] only hearken H6963 to my voice, H3212 [H8798] and go H3947 [H8798] bring them to me.
14 H3212 [H8799] And he went, H3947 [H8799] and took, H935 [H8686] and brought H517 them to his mother: H517 and his mother H6213 [H8799] made H4303 savoury meat, H1 such as his father H157 [H8804] loved.
15 H7259 And Rebekah H3947 [H8799] took H2532 the choicest H899 raiment H1419 of her eldest H1121 son H6215 Esau, H1004 which was with her in the house, H3847 [H8686] and put it upon H3290 Jacob H6996 her younger H1121 son:
16 H3847 [H8689] And she put H5785 the skins H1423 of the kids H5795 of the goats H3027 on his hands, H2513 and on the smooth part H6677 of his neck:
17 H5414 [H8799] And she gave H4303 the savoury meat H3899 and the bread, H6213 [H8804] which she had prepared, H3027 into the hand H1121 of her son H3290 Jacob.
18 H935 [H8799] And he came H1 to his father, H559 [H8799] and said, H1 My father: H559 [H8799] and he said, H1121 Here am I; who art thou, my son?
19 H3290 And Jacob H559 [H8799] said H1 to his father, H6215 I am Esau H1060 thy firstborn; H6213 [H8804] I have done H1696 [H8765] according as thou badest H6965 [H8798] me: arise, H3427 [H8798] I pray thee, sit H398 [H8798] and eat H6718 of my venison, H5315 that thy breath H1288 [H8762] may bless me.
20 H3327 And Isaac H559 [H8799] said H1121 to his son, H4672 [H8800] How is it that thou hast found H4116 [H8765] it so quickly, H1121 my son? H559 [H8799] And he said, H3068 Because the LORD H430 thy God H7136 [H8689] brought H6440 it to me.
21 H3327 And Isaac H559 [H8799] said H3290 to Jacob, H5066 [H8798] Come near, H4184 [H8799] I pray thee, that I may feel H1121 thee, my son, H2088 whether thou art my very H1121 son H6215 Esau or not.
22 H3290 And Jacob H5066 [H8799] went near H3327 to Isaac H1 his father; H4959 [H8799] and he felt H559 [H8799] him, and said, H6963 The voice H3290 is Jacob's H6963 voice, H3027 but the hands H3027 are the hands H6215 of Esau.
23 H5234 [H8689] And he knew H3027 him not, because his hands H8163 were hairy, H251 as his brother H6215 Esau's H3027 hands: H1288 [H8762] so he blessed him.
25 H559 [H8799] And he said, H5066 [H8685] Bring it near H398 [H8799] to me, and I will eat H1121 of my son's H6718 venison, H5315 that my breath H1288 [H8762] may bless H5066 [H8686] thee. And he brought it near H398 [H8799] to him, and he ate: H935 [H8686] and he brought H3196 him wine, H8354 [H8799] and he drank.
26 H1 And his father H3327 Isaac H559 [H8799] said H5066 [H8798] to him, Come near H5401 [H8798] now, and kiss H1121 me, my son.
27 H5066 [H8799] And he came near, H5401 [H8799] and kissed H7306 [H8686] him: and he smelled H7381 the odour H899 of his raiment, H1288 [H8762] and blessed H559 [H8799] him, and said, H7200 [H8798] See, H7381 the odour H1121 of my son H7381 is as the odour H7704 of a field H3068 which the LORD H1288 [H8765] hath blessed:
28 H430 Therefore God H5414 [H8799] give H2919 thee of the dew H8064 of heaven, H4924 and the fatness H776 of the earth, H7230 and abundance H1715 of grain H8492 and wine:
29 H5971 Let people H5647 [H8799] serve H3816 thee, and folks H7812 [H8691] bow down H1933 [H8798] to thee: be H1376 lord H251 over thy brethren, H517 and let thy mother's H1121 sons H7812 [H8691] bow down H779 [H8803] to thee: cursed H779 [H8802] be every one that curseth H1288 [H8803] thee, and blessed H1288 [H8764] be he that blesseth thee.
30 H3327 And it came to pass, as soon as Isaac H3615 [H8765] had finished H1288 [H8763] blessing H3290 Jacob, H3290 and Jacob H389 had yet H3318 [H8800] scarcely H3318 [H8804] gone out H6440 from the face H3327 of Isaac H1 his father, H6215 that Esau H251 his brother H935 [H8804] came in H6718 from his hunting.
31 H6213 [H8799] And he also had made H4303 savoury meat, H935 [H8686] and brought it H1 to his father, H559 [H8799] and said H1 to his father, H1 Let my father H6965 [H8799] arise, H398 [H8799] and eat H1121 of his son's H6718 venison, H5315 that thy breath H1288 [H8762] may bless me.
32 H3327 And Isaac H1 his father H559 [H8799] said H559 [H8799] to him, Who art thou? And he said, H1121 I am thy son, H1060 thy firstborn H6215 Esau.
33 H3327 And Isaac H2729 [H8799] trembled H1419 H3966 H2731 exceedingly, H559 [H8799] and said, H645 Who? where H6679 [H8801] is he that hath taken H6718 venison, H935 [H8686] and brought H398 [H8799] it me, and I have eaten H935 [H8799] of all before thou camest, H1288 [H8762] and have blessed H1288 [H8803] him? yea, and he shall be blessed.
34 H6215 And when Esau H8085 [H8800] heard H1697 the words H1 of his father, H6817 [H8799] he shrieked H1419 with a great H3966 and exceedingly H4751 bitter H6818 shriek, H559 [H8799] and said H1 to his father, H1288 [H8761] Bless H1 me, even me also, O my father.
35 H559 [H8799] And he said, H251 Thy brother H935 [H8804] came H4820 deceitfully, H3947 [H8799] and hath taken away H1293 thy blessing.
36 H559 [H8799] And he said, H3588 Is he not rightly H7121 H8034 [H8804] named H3290 Jacob? H6117 [H8799] for he hath supplanted me H2088 H6471 twice: H3947 [H8804] he took away H1062 my birthright; H3947 [H8804] and, behold, now he hath taken away H1293 my blessing. H559 [H8799] And he said, H680 [H8804] Hast thou not reserved H1293 a blessing for me?
37 H3327 And Isaac H6030 [H8799] answered H559 [H8799] and said H6215 to Esau, H7760 [H8804] Behold, I have made H1376 him thy lord, H251 and all his brethren H5414 [H8804] have I given H5650 to him for servants; H1715 and with grain H8492 and wine H5564 [H8804] have I sustained H6213 [H8799] him: and what shall I do H645 now H1121 to thee, my son?
38 H6215 And Esau H559 [H8799] said H1 to his father, H259 Hast thou but one H1293 blessing, H1 my father? H1288 [H8761] bless H1 me, even me also, O my father. H6215 And Esau H5375 [H8799] lifted up H6963 his voice, H1058 [H8799] and wept.
39 H3327 And Isaac H1 his father H6030 [H8799] answered H559 [H8799] and said H4186 to him, Behold, thy dwelling H4924 shall be the fatness H776 of the earth, H2919 and of the dew H8064 of heaven H5920 from above;
40 H2719 And by thy sword H2421 [H8799] shalt thou live, H5647 [H8799] and shalt serve H251 thy brother; H7300 [H8686] and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, H6561 [H8804] that thou shalt break H5923 his yoke H6677 from off thy neck.
41 H6215 And Esau H7852 [H8799] bore a grudge against H3290 Jacob H5921 because H1293 of the blessing H834 with which H1 his father H1288 [H8765] blessed him: H6215 and Esau H559 [H8799] said H3820 in his heart, H3117 The days H60 of mourning H1 for my father H7126 [H8799] are at hand; H2026 [H8799] then will I slay H251 my brother H3290 Jacob.
42 H1697 And these words H6215 of Esau H1419 her elder H1121 son H5046 [H8714] were told H7259 to Rebekah: H7971 [H8799] and she sent H7121 [H8799] and called H3290 Jacob H6996 her younger H1121 son, H559 [H8799] and said H251 to him, Behold, thy brother H6215 Esau, H5162 [H8693] as concerning thee, doth comfort H2026 [H8800] himself, purposing to kill thee.
43 H1121 Now therefore, my son, H8085 [H8798] obey H6963 my voice; H6965 [H8798] and arise, H1272 [H8798] flee H3837 thou to Laban H251 my brother H2771 to Haran;
44 H3427 [H8804] And tarry H259 with him a few H3117 days, H834 until H251 thy brother's H2534 hot anger H7725 [H8799] shall turn away;
45 H251 Till thy brother's H639 anger H7725 [H8800] shall turn away H7911 [H8804] from thee, and he shall forget H6213 [H8804] that which thou hast done H7971 [H8804] to him: then I will send, H3947 [H8804] and bring H4100 thee from there: why H7921 [H8799] should I be bereaved H8147 also of you both H259 in one H3117 day?
46 H7259 And Rebekah H559 [H8799] said H3327 to Isaac, H6973 [H8804] I am weary H2416 of my life H6440 because H1323 of the daughters H2845 of Heth: H3290 if Jacob H3947 [H8802] shall take H802 a wife H1323 of the daughters H2845 of Heth, H1323 such as these who are of the daughters H776 of the land, H4100 what good H2416 shall my life do me?
