And he said, bring [it] near to me
Being in a good measure satisfied that it must be Esau that was with him, he agreed that he should set his savoury meat before him he had prepared and brought to him: and I will eat of my son's venison, that my soul may bless thee;
this showed that as yet he had not blessed him, at least that the main and principal blessing was yet to come: and he brought [it] near to him, and he did eat;
set it on a table before him, and guided his hands to it, or fed him with it, and he made a meal of it: and he brought him wine, and he drank;
and so was comfortably refreshed, and in a good temper and disposition of mind to confer the blessing.
