When Isaac was old, his eyesight was poor, so he could not see clearly. One day he called his older son Esau to him and said, "Son." Esau answered, "Here I am."
Isaac said, "I am old and don't know when I might die.
So take your bow and arrows and go hunting in the field for an animal for me to eat.
When you prepare the tasty food that I love, bring it to me, and I will eat. Then I will bless you before I die."
So Esau went out in the field to hunt. Rebekah was listening as Isaac said this to his son Esau.
She said to her son Jacob, "Listen, I heard your father saying to your brother Esau,
'Kill an animal and prepare some tasty food for me to eat. Then I will bless you in the presence of the Lord before I die.'
So obey me, my son, and do what I tell you.
Go out to our goats and bring me two of the best young ones. I will prepare them just the way your father likes them.
