Now then, take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field, and hunt game for me,
and prepare for me savory food, such as I love, and bring it to me that I may eat; that I may bless you before I die."
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,
Rebekah said to her son Jacob, "I heard your father speak to your brother Esau,
'Bring me game, and prepare for me savory food, that I may eat it, and bless you before the LORD before I die.'
Now therefore, my son, obey my word as I command you.
Go to the flock, and fetch me two good kids, that I may prepare from them savory food for your father, such as he loves;
and you shall bring it to your father to eat, so that he may bless you before he dies."
But Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, "Behold, my brother Esau is a hairy man, and I am a smooth man.
Perhaps my father will feel me, and I shall seem to be mocking him, and bring a curse upon myself and not a blessing."
His mother said to him, "Upon me be your curse, my son; only obey my word, and go, fetch them to me."
