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."
"Who are you?" Isaac asked. "Your older son Esau," he answered.
Isaac began to tremble and shake all over, and he asked, "Who was it, then, who killed an animal and brought it to me? I ate it just before you came. I gave him my final blessing, and so it is his forever."
When Esau heard this, he cried out loudly and bitterly and said, "Give me your blessing also, father!"
