Genesis 27

NAS 1 Now it came about, when Isaac was old and his eyes were too dim to see, that he called his older son Esau and said to him, "My son." And he said to him, "Here I am." NIV 1 When Isaac was old and his eyes were so weak that he could no longer see, he called for Esau his older son and said to him, "My son." "Here I am," he answered. NAS 2 Isaac said, "Behold now, I am old and I do not know the day of my death. NIV 2 Isaac said, "I am now an old man and don't know the day of my death. NAS 3 "Now then, please take your gear, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me; NIV 3 Now then, get your weapons--your quiver and bow--and go out to the open country to hunt some wild game for me. NAS 4 and prepare a savory dish for me such as I love, and bring it to me that I may eat, so that my soul may bless you before I die." NIV 4 Prepare me the kind of tasty food I like and bring it to me to eat, so that I may give you my blessing before I die." NAS 5 Rebekah was listening while Isaac spoke to his son Esau. So when Esau went to the field to hunt for game to bring home, NIV 5 Now Rebekah was listening as Isaac spoke to his son Esau. When Esau left for the open country to hunt game and bring it back, NAS 6 Rebekah said to her son Jacob, "Behold, I heard your father speak to your brother Esau, saying, NIV 6 Rebekah said to her son Jacob, "Look, I overheard your father say to your brother Esau, NAS 7 'Bring me some game and prepare a savory dish for me, that I may eat, and bless you in the presence of the LORD before my death.' NIV 7 'Bring me some game and prepare me some tasty food to eat, so that I may give you my blessing in the presence of the LORD before I die.' NAS 8 "Now therefore, my son, listen to me as I command you. NIV 8 Now, my son, listen carefully and do what I tell you: NAS 9 "Go now to the flock and bring me two choice young goats from there, that I may prepare them as a savory dish for your father, such as he loves. NIV 9 Go out to the flock and bring me two choice young goats, so I can prepare some tasty food for your father, just the way he likes it. NAS 10 "Then you shall bring it to your father, that he may eat, so that he may bless you before his death." NIV 10 Then take it to your father to eat, so that he may give you his blessing before he dies." NAS 11 Jacob answered his mother Rebekah, "Behold, Esau my brother is a hairy man and I am a smooth man. NIV 11 Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, "But my brother Esau is a hairy man, and I'm a man with smooth skin. NAS 12 "Perhaps my father will feel me, then I will be as a deceiver in his sight, and I will bring upon myself a curse and not a blessing." NIV 12 What if my father touches me? I would appear to be tricking him and would bring down a curse on myself rather than a blessing." NAS 13 But his mother said to him, "Your curse be on me, my son; only obey my voice, and go, get them for me." NIV 13 His mother said to him, "My son, let the curse fall on me. Just do what I say; go and get them for me." NAS 14 So he went and got them, and brought them to his mother; and his mother made savory food such as his father loved. NIV 14 So he went and got them and brought them to his mother, and she prepared some tasty food, just the way his father liked it. NAS 15 Then Rebekah took the best garments of Esau her elder son, which were with her in the house, and put them on Jacob her younger son. NIV 15 Then Rebekah took the best clothes of Esau her older son, which she had in the house, and put them on her younger son Jacob. NAS 16 And she put the skins of the young goats on his hands and on the smooth part of his neck. NIV 16 She also covered his hands and the smooth part of his neck with the goatskins. NAS 17 She also gave the savory food and the bread, which she had made, to her son Jacob. NIV 17 Then she handed to her son Jacob the tasty food and the bread she had made. NAS 18 Then he came to his father and said, "My father." And he said, "Here I am. Who are you, my son?" NIV 18 He went to his father and said, "My father." "Yes, my son," he answered. "Who is it?" NAS 19 Jacob said to his father, "I am Esau your firstborn; I have done as you told me. Get up, please, sit and eat of my game, that you may bless me." NIV 19 Jacob said to his father, "I am Esau your firstborn. I have done as you told me. Please sit up and eat some of my game so that you may give me your blessing." NAS 20 Isaac said to his son, "How is it that you have it so quickly, my son?" And he said, "Because the LORD your God caused it to happen to me." NIV 20 Isaac asked his son, "How did you find it so quickly, my son?" "The LORD your God gave me success," he replied. NAS 21 Then Isaac said to Jacob, "Please come close, that I may feel you, my son, whether you are really my son Esau or not." NIV 21 Then Isaac said to Jacob, "Come near so I can touch you, my son, to know whether you really are my son Esau or not." NAS 22 So Jacob came close to Isaac his father, and he felt him and said, "The voice is the voice of Jacob, but the hands are the hands of Esau." NIV 22 Jacob went close to his father Isaac, who touched him and said, "The voice is the voice of Jacob, but the hands are the hands of Esau." NAS 23 He did not recognize him, because his hands were hairy like his brother Esau's hands; so he blessed him. NIV 23 He did not recognize him, for his hands were hairy like those of his brother Esau; so he blessed him. NAS 24 And he said, "Are you really my son Esau?" And he said, "I am." NIV 24 "Are you really my son Esau?" he asked. "I am," he replied. NAS 25 So he said, "Bring it to me, and I will eat of my son's game, that I may bless you." And he brought it to him, and he ate; he also brought him wine and he drank. NIV 25 Then he said, "My son, bring me some of your game to eat, so that I may give you my blessing." Jacob brought it to him and he ate; and he brought some wine and he drank. NAS 26 Then his father Isaac said to him, "Please come close and kiss me, my son." NIV 26 Then his father Isaac said to him, "Come here, my son, and kiss me." NAS 27 So he came close and kissed him; and when he smelled the smell of his garments, he blessed him and said, "See, the smell of my son Is like the smell of a field which the LORD has blessed; NIV 27 So he went to him and kissed him. When Isaac caught the smell of his clothes, he blessed him and said, "Ah, the smell of my son is like the smell of a field that the LORD has blessed. NAS 28 Now may God give you of the dew of heaven, And of the fatness of the earth, And an abundance of grain and new wine; NIV 28 May God give you of heaven's dew and of earth's richness-- an abundance of grain and new wine. NAS 29 May peoples serve you, And nations bow down to you; Be master of your brothers, And may your mother's sons bow down to you. Cursed be those who curse you, And blessed be those who bless you." NIV 29 May nations serve you and peoples bow down to you. Be lord over your brothers, and may the sons of your mother bow down to you. May those who curse you be cursed and those who bless you be blessed." NAS 30 Now it came about, as soon as Isaac had finished blessing Jacob, and Jacob had hardly gone out from the presence of Isaac his father, that Esau his brother came in from his hunting. NIV 30 After Isaac finished blessing him and Jacob had scarcely left his father's presence, his brother Esau came in from hunting. NAS 31 Then he also made savory food, and brought it to his father; and he said to his father, "Let my father arise and eat of his son's game, that you may bless me." NIV 31 He too prepared some tasty food and brought it to his father. Then he said to him, "My father, sit up and eat some of my game, so that you may give me your blessing." NAS 32 Isaac his father said to him, "Who are you?" And he said, "I am your son, your firstborn, Esau." NIV 32 His father Isaac asked him, "Who are you?" "I am your son," he answered, "your firstborn, Esau." NAS 33 Then Isaac trembled violently , and said, "Who was he then that hunted game and brought it to me, so that I ate of all of it before you came, and blessed him? Yes, and he shall be blessed." NIV 33 Isaac trembled violently and said, "Who was it, then, that hunted game and brought it to me? I ate it just before you came and I blessed him--and indeed he will be blessed!" NAS 34 When Esau heard the words of his father, he cried out with an exceedingly great and bitter cry, and said to his father, "Bless me, even me also, O my father!" NIV 34 When Esau heard his father's words, he burst out with a loud and bitter cry and said to his father, "Bless me--me too, my father!" NAS 35 And he said, "Your brother came deceitfully and has taken away your blessing." NIV 35 But he said, "Your brother came deceitfully and took your blessing." NAS 36 Then he said, "Is he not rightly named Jacob, for he has supplanted me these two times? He took away my birthright, and behold, now he has taken away my blessing." And he said, "Have you not reserved a blessing for me?" NIV 36 Esau said, "Isn't he rightly named Jacob ? He has deceived me these two times: He took my birthright, and now he's taken my blessing!" Then he asked, "Haven't you reserved any blessing for me?" NAS 37 But Isaac replied to Esau, "Behold, I have made him your master, and all his relatives I have given to him as servants; and with grain and new wine I have sustained him. Now as for you then, what can I do, my son?" NIV 37 Isaac answered Esau, "I have made him lord over you and have made all his relatives his servants, and I have sustained him with grain and new wine. So what can I possibly do for you, my son?" NAS 38 Esau said to his father, "Do you have only one blessing, my father? Bless me, even me also, O my father." So Esau lifted his voice and wept. NIV 38 Esau said to his father, "Do you have only one blessing, my father? Bless me too, my father!" Then Esau wept aloud. NAS 39 Then Isaac his father answered and said to him, "Behold, away from the fertility of the earth shall be your dwelling, And away from the dew of heaven from above. NIV 39 His father Isaac answered him, "Your dwelling will be away from the earth's richness, away from the dew of heaven above. NAS 40 "By your sword you shall live, And your brother you shall serve; But it shall come about when you become restless, That you will break his yoke from your neck." NIV 40 You will live by the sword and you will serve your brother. But when you grow restless, you will throw his yoke from off your neck." NAS 41 So Esau bore a grudge against Jacob because of the blessing with which his father had blessed him; and Esau said to himself, "The days of mourning for my father are near; then I will kill my brother Jacob." NIV 41 Esau held a grudge against Jacob because of the blessing his father had given him. He said to himself, "The days of mourning for my father are near; then I will kill my brother Jacob." NAS 42 Now when the words of her elder son Esau were reported to Rebekah, she sent and called her younger son Jacob, and said to him, "Behold your brother Esau is consoling himself concerning you by planning to kill you. NIV 42 When Rebekah was told what her older son Esau had said, she sent for her younger son Jacob and said to him, "Your brother Esau is consoling himself with the thought of killing you. NAS 43 "Now therefore, my son, obey my voice, and arise, flee to Haran, to my brother Laban! NIV 43 Now then, my son, do what I say: Flee at once to my brother Laban in Haran. NAS 44 "Stay with him a few days, until your brother's fury subsides, NIV 44 Stay with him for a while until your brother's fury subsides. NAS 45 until your brother's anger against you subsides and he forgets what you did to him. Then I will send and get you from there. Why should I be bereaved of you both in one day?" NIV 45 When your brother is no longer angry with you and forgets what you did to him, I'll send word for you to come back from there. Why should I lose both of you in one day?" NAS 46 Rebekah said to Isaac, "I am tired of living because of the daughters of Heth; if Jacob takes a wife from the daughters of Heth, like these, from the daughters of the land, what good will my life be to me?" NIV 46 Then Rebekah said to Isaac, "I'm disgusted with living because of these Hittite women. If Jacob takes a wife from among the women of this land, from Hittite women like these, my life will not be worth living."
