One day when Isaac was old and turning blind, he called for Esau, his older son, and said, “My son.” “Yes, Father?” Esau replied.
“I am an old man now,” Isaac said, “and I don’t know when I may die.
Take your bow and a quiver full of arrows, and go out into the open country to hunt some wild game for me.
Prepare my favorite dish, and bring it here for me to eat. Then I will pronounce the blessing that belongs to you, my firstborn son, before I die.”
