Jacob said to his mother Rebekah, "My brother Esau is a hairy man, and my skin is smooth.
My father will feel [my skin] and think I'm mocking him. Then I'll bring a curse on myself instead of a blessing."
His mother responded, "Let any curse on you fall on me, Son. Just obey me and go! Get me [the young goats]."
He went and got them and brought them to his mother. She prepared a good-tasting meal, just the way his father liked it.
Then Rebekah took her older son Esau's good clothes, which she had in the house, and put them on her younger son Jacob.
She put the skins from the young goats on his hands and on the back of his neck.
Then she gave her son Jacob the good-tasting meal and the bread she had prepared.
He went to his father and said, "Father?" "Yes?" he answered. "Who are you, Son?"
Jacob answered his father, "I'm Esau, your firstborn. I've done what you told me. Sit up and eat this meat I've hunted for you so that you may bless me."
Isaac asked his son, "How did you find it so quickly, Son?" "The LORD your God brought it to me," he answered.
Then Isaac said to Jacob, "Come over here so that I can feel your skin, Son, [to find out] whether or not you really are my son Esau."
