The Stolen Blessing

1 When Isaac was old and his eyes were so weak that he could not see, he called his older son Esau and said to him, "My son." And he answered, "Here I am." 2 He said, "Look, I am old and do not know the day of my death. 3 Take your [hunting] gear, your quiver and bow, and go out in the field to hunt some game for me. 4 Then make me the delicious food that I love and bring it to me to eat, so that I can bless you before I die." 22 So Jacob came closer to his father Isaac. When he touched him, he said, "The voice is the voice of Jacob, but the hands are the hands of Esau." 23 He did not recognize him, because his hands were hairy like those of his brother Esau; so he blessed him. 33 Isaac began to tremble uncontrollably. "Who was it then," he said, "who hunted game and brought it to me? I ate it all before you came in, and I blessed him. Indeed, he will be blessed!"
