Isaac said to Jacob, "Please come closer so that I can touch you. Are you really Esau?"
Jacob moved closer to his father, who felt him and said, "Your voice sounds like Jacob's voice, but your arms feel like Esau's arms."
He did not recognize Jacob, because his arms were hairy like Esau's. He was about to give him his blessing,
but asked again, "Are you really Esau?" "I am," he answered.
Isaac said, "Bring me some of the meat. After I eat it, I will give you my blessing." Jacob brought it to him, and he also brought him some wine to drink.
Then his father said to him, "Come closer and kiss me, son."
As he came up to kiss him, Isaac smelled his clothes - so he gave him his blessing. He said, "The pleasant smell of my son is like the smell of a field which the Lord has blessed. 1
May God give you dew from heaven and make your fields fertile! May he give you plenty of grain and wine!
May nations be your servants, and may peoples bow down before you. May you rule over all your relatives, and may your mother's descendants bow down before you. May those who curse you be cursed, and may those who bless you be blessed." 2
Isaac finished giving his blessing, and as soon as Jacob left, his brother Esau came in from hunting.
He also cooked some tasty food and took it to his father. He said, "Please, father, sit up and eat some of the meat that I have brought you, so that you can give me your blessing."
