Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field, and take me venison.
Make me savory food, such as I love, and bring it to me, that I may eat, and that my soul may bless you before I die.
Rebekah heard when Isaac spoke to Esau his son. Esau went to the field to hunt for venison, and to bring it.
Rebekah spoke to Jacob her son, saying, "Behold, I heard your father speak to Esau your brother, saying,
'Bring me venison, and make me savory food, that I may eat, and bless you before Yahweh before my death.'
Now therefore, my son, obey my voice according to that which I command you.
Go now to the flock, and get me from there two good kids of the goats. I will make them savory food for your father, such as he loves.
You shall bring it to your father, that he may eat, so that he may bless you before his death."
Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, "Behold, Esau my brother is a hairy man, and I am a smooth man.
What if my father touches me? I will seem to him as a deceiver, and I would bring a curse on myself, and not a blessing."
His mother said to him, "Let your curse be on me, my son. Only obey my voice, and go get them for me."
