Genesis 27

CEB 1 When Isaac had grown old and his eyesight was failing, he summoned his older son Esau and said to him, "My son?" And Esau said, "I'm here." NRS 1 When Isaac was old and his eyes were dim so that he could not see, he called his elder son Esau and said to him, "My son"; and he answered, "Here I am." CEB 2 He said, "I'm old and don't know when I will die. NRS 2 He said, "See, I am old; I do not know the day of my death. CEB 3 So now, take your hunting gear, your bow and quiver of arrows, go out to the field, and hunt game for me. NRS 3 Now then, take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field, and hunt game for me. CEB 4 Make me the delicious food that I love and bring it to me so I can eat. Then I can bless you before I die." NRS 4 Then prepare for me savory food, such as I like, and bring it to me to eat, so that I may bless you before I die." CEB 5 Rebekah was listening when Isaac spoke to his son Esau. When Esau went out to the field to hunt game to bring back, NRS 5 Now Rebekah was listening when Isaac spoke to his son Esau. So when Esau went to the field to hunt for game and bring it, CEB 6 Rebekah said to her son Jacob, "I just heard your father saying to your brother Esau, NRS 6 Rebekah said to her son Jacob, "I heard your father say to your brother Esau, CEB 7 ‘Bring me some game and make me some delicious food so I can eat, and I will bless you in the LORD's presence before I die.' NRS 7 "Bring me game, and prepare for me savory food to eat, that I may bless you before the Lord before I die.' CEB 8 Now, my son, listen to me, to what I'm telling you to do. NRS 8 Now therefore, my son, obey my word as I command you. CEB 9 Go to the flock and get me two healthy young goats so I can prepare them as the delicious food your father loves. NRS 9 Go to the flock, and get me two choice kids, so that I may prepare from them savory food for your father, such as he likes; CEB 10 You can bring it to your father, he will eat, and then he will bless you before he dies." NRS 10 and you shall take it to your father to eat, so that he may bless you before he dies." CEB 11 Jacob said to his mother Rebekah, "My brother Esau is a hairy man, but I have smooth skin. NRS 11 But Jacob said to his mother Rebekah, "Look, my brother Esau is a hairy man, and I am a man of smooth skin. CEB 12 What if my father touches me and thinks I'm making fun of him? I will be cursed instead of blessed." NRS 12 Perhaps my father will feel me, and I shall seem to be mocking him, and bring a curse on myself and not a blessing." CEB 13 His mother said to him, "Your curse will be on me, my son. Just listen to me: go and get them for me." NRS 13 His mother said to him, "Let your curse be on me, my son; only obey my word, and go, get them for me." CEB 14 So he went and got them and brought them to his mother, and his mother made the delicious food that his father loved. NRS 14 So he went and got them and brought them to his mother; and his mother prepared savory food, such as his father loved. CEB 15 Rebekah took her older son Esau's favorite clothes that were in the house with her, and she put them on her younger son Jacob. NRS 15 Then Rebekah took the best garments of her elder son Esau, which were with her in the house, and put them on her younger son Jacob; CEB 16 On his arms and smooth neck she put the hide of young goats, NRS 16 and she put the skins of the kids on his hands and on the smooth part of his neck. CEB 17 and the delicious food and the bread she had made she put into her son's hands. NRS 17 Then she handed the savory food, and the bread that she had prepared, to her son Jacob. CEB 18 Jacob went to his father and said, "My father." And he said, "I'm here. Who are you, my son?" NRS 18 So he went in to his father, and said, "My father"; and he said, "Here I am; who are you, my son?" CEB 19 Jacob said to his father, "I'm Esau your oldest son. I've made what you asked me to. Sit up and eat some of the game so you can bless me." NRS 19 Jacob said to his father, "I am Esau your firstborn. I have done as you told me; now sit up and eat of my game, so that you may bless me." CEB 20 Isaac said to his son, "How could you find this so quickly, my son?" He said, "The LORD your God led me right to it." NRS 20 But Isaac said to his son, "How is it that you have found it so quickly, my son?" He answered, "Because the Lord your God granted me success." CEB 21 Isaac said to Jacob, "Come here and let me touch you, my son. Are you my son Esau or not?" NRS 21 Then Isaac said to Jacob, "Come near, that I may feel you, my son, to know whether you are really my son Esau or not." CEB 22 So Jacob approached his father Isaac, and Isaac touched him and said, "The voice is Jacob's voice, but the arms are Esau's arms." NRS 22 So Jacob went up to his father Isaac, who felt him and said, "The voice is Jacob's voice, but the hands are the hands of Esau." CEB 23 Isaac didn't recognize him because his arms were hairy like Esau's arms, so he blessed him. NRS 23 He did not recognize him, because his hands were hairy like his brother Esau's hands; so he blessed him. CEB 24 Isaac said, "Are you really my son Esau?" And he said, "I am." NRS 24 He said, "Are you really my son Esau?" He answered, "I am." CEB 25 Isaac said, "Bring some food here and let me eat some of my son's game so I can bless you." Jacob put it before him and he ate, and he brought him wine and he drank. NRS 25 Then he said, "Bring it to me, that I may eat of my son's game and bless you." So he brought it to him, and he ate; and he brought him wine, and he drank. CEB 26 His father Isaac said to him, "Come here and kiss me, my son." NRS 26 Then his father Isaac said to him, "Come near and kiss me, my son." CEB 27 So he came close and kissed him. When Isaac smelled the scent of his clothes, he blessed him, "See, the scent of my son is like the scent of the field that the LORD has blessed. NRS 27 So he came near and kissed him; and he smelled the smell of his garments, and blessed him, and said, "Ah, the smell of my son is like the smell of a field that the Lord has blessed. CEB 28 May God give you showers from the sky, olive oil from the earth, plenty of grain and new wine. NRS 28 May God give you of the dew of heaven, and of the fatness of the earth, and plenty of grain and wine. CEB 29 May the nations serve you, may peoples bow down to you. Be the most powerful man among your brothers, and may your mother's sons bow down to you. Those who curse you will be cursed, and those who bless you will be blessed." NRS 29 Let peoples serve you, and nations bow down to you. Be lord over your brothers, and may your mother's sons bow down to you. Cursed be everyone who curses you, and blessed be everyone who blesses you!" CEB 30 After Isaac had finished blessing Jacob, and just as Jacob left his father Isaac, his brother Esau came back from his hunt. NRS 30 As soon as Isaac had finished blessing Jacob, when Jacob had scarcely gone out from the presence of his father Isaac, his brother Esau came in from his hunting. CEB 31 He too made some delicious food, brought it to his father, and said, "Let my father sit up and eat from his son's game so that you may bless me." NRS 31 He also prepared savory food, and brought it to his father. And he said to his father, "Let my father sit up and eat of his son's game, so that you may bless me." CEB 32 His father Isaac said to him, "Who are you?" And he said, "I'm your son, your oldest son, Esau." NRS 32 His father Isaac said to him, "Who are you?" He answered, "I am your firstborn son, Esau." CEB 33 Isaac was so shocked that he trembled violently. He said, "Who was the hunter just here with game? He brought me food, and I ate all of it before you came. I blessed him, and he will stay blessed!" NRS 33 Then Isaac trembled violently, and said, "Who was it then that hunted game and brought it to me, and I ate it all before you came, and I have blessed him?—yes, and blessed he shall be!" CEB 34 When Esau heard what his father said, he let out a loud agonizing cry and wept bitterly. He said to his father, "Bless me! Me too, my father!" NRS 34 When Esau heard his father's words, he cried out with an exceedingly great and bitter cry, and said to his father, "Bless me, me also, father!" CEB 35 Isaac said, "Your brother has already come deceitfully and has taken your blessing." NRS 35 But he said, "Your brother came deceitfully, and he has taken away your blessing." CEB 36 Esau said, "Isn't this why he's called Jacob? He's taken me twice now: he took my birthright, and now he's taken my blessing." He continued, "Haven't you saved a blessing for me?" NRS 36 Esau said, "Is he not rightly named Jacob? For he has supplanted me these two times. He took away my birthright; and look, now he has taken away my blessing." Then he said, "Have you not reserved a blessing for me?" CEB 37 Isaac replied to Esau, "I've already made him more powerful than you, and I've made all of his brothers his servants. I've made him strong with grain and wine. What can I do for you, my son?" NRS 37 Isaac answered Esau, "I have already made him your lord, and I have given him all his brothers as servants, and with grain and wine I have sustained him. What then can I do for you, my son?" CEB 38 Esau said to his father, "Do you really have only one blessing, Father? Bless me too, my father!" And Esau wept loudly. NRS 38 Esau said to his father, "Have you only one blessing, father? Bless me, me also, father!" And Esau lifted up his voice and wept. CEB 39 His father Isaac responded and said to him, "Now, you will make a home far away from the olive groves of the earth, far away from the showers of the sky above. NRS 39 Then his father Isaac answered him: "See, away from the fatness of the earth shall your home be, and away from the dew of heaven on high. CEB 40 You will live by your sword; you will serve your brother. But when you grow restless, you will tear away his harness from your neck." NRS 40 By your sword you shall live, and you shall serve your brother; but when you break loose, you shall break his yoke from your neck." CEB 41 Esau was furious at Jacob because his father had blessed him, and Esau said to himself, When the period of mourning for the death of my father is over, I will kill my brother. NRS 41 Now Esau hated 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 approaching; then I will kill my brother Jacob." CEB 42 Rebekah was told what her older son Esau was planning, so she summoned her younger son Jacob and said to him, "Esau your brother is planning revenge. He plans to kill you. NRS 42 But the words of her elder son Esau were told to Rebekah; so she sent and called her younger son Jacob and said to him, "Your brother Esau is consoling himself by planning to kill you. CEB 43 So now, my son, listen to me: Get up and escape to my brother Laban in Haran. NRS 43 Now therefore, my son, obey my voice; flee at once to my brother Laban in Haran, CEB 44 Live with him for a short while until your brother's rage subsides, NRS 44 and stay with him a while, until your brother's fury turns away— CEB 45 until your brother's anger at you goes away and he forgets what you did to him. Then I will send for you and bring you back from there. Why should I suffer the loss of both of you on one day?" NRS 45 until your brother's anger against you turns away, and he forgets what you have done to him; then I will send, and bring you back from there. Why should I lose both of you in one day?" CEB 46 Rebekah then said to Isaac, "I really loathe these Hittite women. If Jacob marries one of the Hittite women, like the women of this land, why should I go on living?" NRS 46 Then Rebekah said to Isaac, "I am weary of my life because of the Hittite women. If Jacob marries one of the Hittite women such as these, one of the women of the land, what good will my life be to me?"
